October Mingle and an ATC

Here is my Byhand October "Yalpha" Mingle 4X4. Each month we choose a letter and incorporate it into a 4X4. This month I chose "H" as I'm sure many others did too! I used my new Michael's $1.50 stamp to point to the Haunted House!

The H opens up, but I had to take a photo of it open (rather than scan it), and so it's not very good (sorry!)

In my Altered Books Canada Yahoo Group we are having an ATC swap. We are making one Fall themed ATC for one other person, and when that person receives the ATC, they will incorporate it into an altered book page. This should be fun! Here's mine, ready to go. . .

I'm also in another swap called the Scenic Bounce Swap. I should have scanned the first one before I sent it off, but I'll try to get the rest. The leader of the swap stamped (our my case) a rock on a card front. I added a deer to the "scene" and sent it to my partner Jo. She adds to it and sends it back to me, I add to it and send it back to her, and so on. Should be fun!

Beautiful Fall!

It's turning out to be a beautiful Fall! We went on our annual Fall Leaf Tour last weekend, and saw some glorious Ontario Fall views!

And for for a little bit of art. . .!
I sent off my last September postcard today (late..bad girl!)

And made 10 Rolodex cards for my Byhand Group pink Rolodex Swap for Breast Cancer.

My mistake on these was not to cut out the bottom holes before I stamped! Didn't totally ruin the cards, so I left it as is. Hopefully I will remember for next time. I haven't done a Rolodex swap for a long time! I really enjoy these little cards! The stamps are from Chapel Road, which I think has been bought by another Canadian company.
