Altered Playing Cards for Swap (way back in August)

I've mentioned a few times that I'm part of a Facebook group that often does swaps. . .actually, that's kinda the whole point of the group. Anyway, because of the move and everything, I'm very far behind in sharing what I've made and sent and all. Immediately before the move, I finished and sent off my August altered playing card swap. I even recorded my process of making them.

Here's the first of the four videos of the process. If you click over to the video, you'll find the links to the other three in the description, or here; Video 2, Video 3, and Video 4.

Of course, if you're not a video-watching kinda person - here are pictures of the cards I created for the swap.

I also did a video for the October swap and am currently working on the November cards. I thought it was best that I take a break from all the creating to actually catch up a little and share August's with you. Dang, that moving thing really does make an impact on getting things done. I'm still not sure I'll ever catch up, but I'm working on it.

Oh, and if you want to see some of the other cards I've made for similar swaps you can find them in blog posts here and here.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoy the week ahead.


  1. Those are really pretty, and the Arthur Ashe quote is so inspiring - just a reminder I needed to see! I can't wait to explore your blog some more :)

    1. Kim, Thanks so much! Yeah. I picked out and printed a few quotes, phrases, words that really spoke to me to use in these cards. That one says so much to me (as I hoard everything possible) about simplicity and goals and all that. Thanks so much for taking the time to pop in. I so appreciate it! :)


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.

Winding down the 100DayProject

I awoke the other day with many thoughts about the 100 Day project and decided to jot them down here to share with you. Some of the bits I g...
