September Mystery is revealed...




Hello Friends,
tonight I am delighted to post the card (s) made for  a Mystery swap (round 12th)
hosted by Sam (SCS: way2cute)
 
What's a Mystery swap you may ask??
It is a fun swap that was originally founded by Jeanette aka Forest Ranger on SCS .  Here's Jeanette's own words on her own awesome brainchild idea:
(I copied her condensed version as it explains it much clearly than I would...)
" Mystery Swappers : It's a group of stampers who participate in a swap every other month. The hostess sends identical images to all the gals, who in turn create four cards for the swap. It's a mystery what the image will be, and we're not supposed to post a picture of our cards on our blogs/galleries until the swap is due."
 
We post our cards on our blogs and / or SCS Gallery onthe 18th of every other month, allowing the current hostess to send us images for next mystery too, which are provided from the next hostess (Terry)...clear as mud ,right? lol
 
Sam sent all of us partecipants cutest images from an old SU sets aptly called 'Farm Fever'  I love this set , I have one of my own to enjoy inking from time to time as it is so versatile and funny too....
(yikesss! I just realized that the above picture I took is missing colored stems and leaves...lol..dang!...oh well...at least is completed in the next one, below....lol)
  
 
I had lots of fun coloring these images, which I did using SU watercolor pastels. I hope Sam and the  other recipients will enjoy it too. ♥  
As a matter of fact I hope YOU like them too
of course! *wink & smile*
 
 
♥ God Bless to All ♥
