Fall Swap Cards at Last!

I joined the fall swap between the "PSF's" and the "TDS" on SCS. Confused? These are different groups on Splitcoast Stampers. The PSF's are "Pretend Stamping Friends" and TDS are my dear Traveling Dork Sisters. I thought I'd have time to finish these with time to spare. I started them in September. EARLY September! Then life happened & here I am finishing them up. You'll notice they all (or almost all) have different buttons on them. I had the cutest set of Jesse James Dress It Up buttons & decided to use those. I ended up with some with greens & purple buttons that just did NOT match, so I used the cute leaves I had on 2 of the cards.

For the Layout, I used the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week HERE.

I loved how my dork sister Karen Lynn added texture to the wedge pieces on her card HERE. I decided my wedges would replicate the tail feathers.

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Eat More Ham
Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa & Black, Distress Walnut Stain and Orange Marmalade
Accessories: Dress it up buttons, stickles, copics & prismacolor markers, nesties, cb folders
Paper: Textured brown, golden brown, white, red, orange, yellow

Thanks for looking!

Oh, how funny Lori!! I hope the ones in your swap picture get their signs...Every year I tell myself I am not doing turkey, and last year I said, "Next year we are having ham!" So this just cracks me up, because it literally is a sign between you and me, dork sister!!
Love your colors, design, and humor!

What fun, Lori! Thanks for mentioning me!! Although you could have just done it, I don't care! You are my birthday twin after all!

I laughed because I just got out this stamp set and begun to play with it. Seems birthday twins do think a like!
