Another Alpha Stamps Swap

I just love Alpha Stamps products for creating/altering anything.  If you have never checked them out, go take a look HERE.  They have an awesome monthly kit and their swaps are such fun!!!  Here are my 3 swaps for their Spring Fling 4 x 4 swap.  I used coasters as the base to which I added background paper and then images from Alpha Stamps collage sheets (it's hard to pick just 1 or 3 because the images are so beautiful). I then added embellishments and sent them off.  The photos I took looked good at the time but on the computer they are dreadfully washed out but here they are:

Thanks for stopping by...

Hi, Just wanted to post my latest card.  Technique Junkies is once again doing their "technique of the week" and this past week the technique is one called Bands of Color. There were lots of really pretty cards posted, here's mine:
Once made, I sent this out to my Stamping Queen swap partner.  I hope she likes it!

Love, Life, Wisdom - My Keys

Finally, I am taking a minute to post.  I am getting backed up with things I want to share, from jewelry (yep I made another necklace) to cards, to keys and even a baby blanket.  Woohoo... Today is reserved for my precious keys.  Have you ever worked on something to the point where you think of it as your "baby"? That's what happened with my keys.  By the time it was time to send them out, I had a hard time, but I know they will go to homes that will appreciate them.  I am not going to go through the whole process of each one, suffice it to say they took a while (though totally worth the effort) and I loved each one more as I progressed with it, oh and I worked simultaneously on each one... start one, leave it for the next key, come back to the first one, etc.  All the display cards were done after the keys were completed, and those were done, each one, from start to finish.  I hope you like them...  This first key is LOVE:
This next key is LIFE:

And the third key is WISDOM:
And there you have my babies!!!  I hope you enjoyed looking at them and I wish you each could see them in  real life. Thanks for visiting...
