I'm among the living again...

Well today is the first day in about 4 days that I am starting to feel myself. I have been fighting a horrible cold and have actually been off work since Tuesday afternoon. But today I feel fine. I am itching to go outside. I'm restless and want to do some shoppin, of course. LOL

But being stuck in the house and not being able to sleep, I have completed cards for 2 swaps and I have finished a card to go to my Secret Sis on Splitcoaststampers (SCS). Confused? O.K. let me give you some background:

First, you can read a little about what exactly is Splitcoastampers on right column of my blog. There I have category for Splitcoaststampers.

Second, I am signed for a couple of different fun swaps on SCS. I am in a 4-month (Sep.-Dec.) swap that consist of 4 groups of 4. Each person takes a turn being the hostess for a month. Since I signed up for 2 groups I am the hostess for October and December. Well, as hostess you send the other 3 ladies a kit of the same stuff to make enough cards for 4 people. Each person uses their creativity and comes up with 4 of the same cards and send it out to the other 3 people in their group. It's really nice to see how different the cards are using the same materials. And I am in a Christmas Swap. I made 6 cards and send them to the hostess and she randomly sends back 5 different cards that other people did. The extra card is always for the hostess.

Now my Lil Sis is someone you receive randomly to send cards and little gifts to. It usually last 3 or 4 months and then you reveal yourself to them at the end. It's fun receiving cards in the mail throughout the month. You get really nice ideas.

Now for some pictures:

Here is a picture of the card I did for my Christmas Swap:

And here is the card I sent to my Lil Sis. I think I had some bad lighting on that one. I'll try to take another picture and reload.

And since I'm the Big Sis of a Lil Sis, it only is fair that I'm a Lil Sis for a Big Sis. So here is picture of a pretty card that I received from Big Sis.

Well it's Friday, so have a great weekend!
