This is the recycled swing card from last months card swop on Crafty place that went really wrong! I managed to cover up all the awful mistakes and I actually quite like it now!! I would have been happy to send this one if I had come up with this card in the first place!
On the front is a ghost that was 'squeezed' for me ages ago by Choccy (thanks hun!), stuck onto a punched scallop circle (paper form a scrapbook set in poundland, with a little bit of doodling on the outline with a black glitter pen). I used a mixture of punched and bought paper flowers with a couple of brads. On the 'backside' I used another scalloped circle run through the swiss dots folder in the cuttlebug, decorated with 2 bats cut and embossed with the cuttlebug (hadn't used it for ages so getting my money out of it again today!)Now I just need to decide who I am gonna send it to!

I think I might need to add some shimmer or glitter or gloss to the image just to make it zing a bit more but the challenge closes today so I have to pop it on my blog!

OK you have probably guessed what I have been up to, if not here is the evidence.....
I read them all really quickly and forgot about everything else! So no phone calls, no internet, no housework, no MSN no social life for several days! I have to apologise to those who are waiting for their September swops from Crafty Place but I have got everything organised and they will be in the post tomorrow I promise!! Sorry to Flourgirl, Dragonllew and Hels. I have finally got back to crafting and organising myself!
Now what to read next....????
As you can see I had a few piggies! The one on the left is from Padster and on the right is one from Dragonllew. They are both more fabulous in real life and the attention to detail is amazing.This collection of handmade goodies came from Flourgirl and includes a card, a tea bag holder and a cross stitched piggy coaster!! Again you cannot see all the tiny embellishments including the pearl necklace and bracelet on the pig card!The top card is from The Wife and is actually a wallet with a lovely message tag inside. The card is absolutely gorgeous and double sided so it is also beautiful on the inside as well and so unusual. The cute Tilda card is from Choccie and it is immaculately coloured in shades of brown including the lace. I love brown so I was delighted!This card is by my talented daughter and is cleverly disguised as a gift! She also decorated it inside so more lovely papers!
As you can see, I was very lucky and was remembered by many people, both friends and family and I am grateful and thankful for everyones cards, gifts, bithday wishes and thoughts.
Thank you all xxx
