These buttons are free to take for everyone Just right click and save as or if you have a problem send me an email and I'll send it right off to you. All these ATC's are using Limited Runs Digital Stamps that I've created Hope you like. I tried to make each one differently using lots of different things on each so they are all individual

So here are all the ATC's I've made for this kewl swap 1st time I've ever joined in the swapand they are ready to mail out to those that want them -minus one for the person below me of course.  These will be 1st come 1st ask for one I will pop it off into the mail for you, they are all put in there envelopes so it will be a surprize as to what you will get.

So here's a list of who's getting my ATC's

1. Monique going to the Netherlands *Person below me*
2. Julia for hosting this !! Mailed to UK :)

I'm hopin in the afternoon but we will see how the day plays out.
The box with all the papers is images that I've coloured or have already coloured with my little pile of scrap papers. Only 1 pair of scissors to be seen in with some of my markers.

My portable desk so I'm not to hunched over and also my kitty's favorite hiding space.
I must add kitty likes to play inside moving everything on me constantly lol.
Didn't even clean it up just picked it up and pushed the whole desk aside to take the picture. I've been making ATC Cards up for the big Swap I have 7 finished and one that I'm working on using up my tiny scraps that we always end up having lying around. So here's my desk so far if you want an ATC you can send me an email or leave a note I'm trying for 10 in total (at least 10) 1st come 1st serve. You can see the little stack of ATC's I've made and each one is different too I'll take a picture of them all when all finished up for next week.
 So One is already spoken for who ever is beneath me besides that every other one I make is up for grabs using my own digital images from Limited Runs that I've create myself
Happy WOYWW and check out everyone Else's space at Julia's
Hugs Nikki

Here's my desk this week I new Penguin that your getting a sneak peak from Limited Runs he's not even in the store yet Just finished him up and he's been tested to see how he looks
I think he's a cutie :) Some trees that I've cut up to go with the penquin
I Think his name is going to be "Harold"
Below him is a DT Card that I'm trying to work on and not so sure where I'm going with it yet lol.
 My Stamps are stored in 2 binders I try my best not to go to crazy and go over board any time I do I share them with my sister and we trade back and forth below is my little friendly,thank you sentiments .. You can honestly never have enough of these and I love the smaller ones to fit in little tags and just randomly add in any little space, plus I still have room to fit some more in even if I have to add in another page lol. But I have found that at least once a year you need to move all the stamps around so they don't get over stuck on the acetate otherwise this works perfect for me flip and look for what I need
Just in case those that need to remember who's company makes which stamp
I stamp them across the page then add a little colour dot beside those that aren't the same
So I can remember mostly these little guys are Studio G with a couple imaginisce thrown in
on my other pages I have sets together with company & set names to know who's who
and they are stuck on acetate with a sleve to go around them.

thank you for peaking in and check out everyone elses desk at Julia's
I'll pop into everyone that visits me
Happy Wed

Things that lurk Below

Having fun trying to use up my stash of coloured images I colour more then I could make in cards for a while. Since my sister sent me all that extra paper I've been having that feeling of trying to use it up quickly it seems. I've even started making matching envelopes to go with the cards but it could be also because I don't own any 5 by 7 in ones. lol
This card became a little unexpected with the sweet little mermaid and the big scary octopus but I like it :)

WOYFW Plus a Lucky WINNER!!!

Well it's Wed and I treated myself to some pencils I've been wanting to get for a really long time and finally broke down and bought some Inktense & some Soft Pastels. So tonight it looks like I'll be colouring in some images and see how they turn out I've never tried Inktense and can't wait to see how they go once they get a brush over them. Seeing they are suppose to be like watercolour pencils which I love to paint with every once in a while.
So here's a couple images I've coloured in
Flower is with the inktense they remind me alot of watercolour pencils crayons
but more intense
The Soft Pastels very soft indeed just like a chalk pastel ... they smudge just as easy
must remember to not rub my hand across it, like I did but very dreamy like can see alot of clouds made with these

And the lucky Winner of my candy is....
With the doing of a little math and adding all the comments/followers/those who posted
then giving in all the numbers to Mr. Random Generator and it is....
Please send me your home address and I'll get it off into the post to you ASAP !!!
CONGRATS and sorry if you didn't win this time around
there will be more sooner or later.

Have a Happy Wed and Check out everyone else's desk
at Julia's and take a snoop thru everyone's stash & spaces
it's so addictive to do lol

First Time I've ever made a card with Grey and Yellow and I like it even better it's that it's for Chirstmas such an odd colour combo that just works well together. This is something I'm gonna try again it's kind of a poor man's gold and silver lol.
I've used a dark grey border around them looks close to black but it isn't.
