    *Please make sure you re-read the rules before you sign up.*

    I do still have a few International players. To mail just a postcard in a regular 4 x 6 envelope, It is appx. less then 1.50 to mail depending on where you live in the US. Our international players are top notch swappers. Please don't forget to let me know If you can swap International.

    Hi dotcomdtcm, I was wondering, could you post a photo of your Fantasy Tree Quilt? It was my inspiration for the theme this month.

    Here's a sample of 12" Sq. blocks that I received in the Monthly Block Swap that are Funky Trees. They were not made by me. But, received by fellow board members. They are not as diverse as Dotty's are. But, they are a good jumping off point. We are working on a much smaller scale.

    Here is another sample of a "Mixed Media" Tree. This sample only measures about 4 1/2 x 6 1/2". I was inspired by someone else's mixed media cards. But, I decided to put in some of my favorite things. There's a pennant for each of the member's of my immediate family and grandchildren.

    Mom and have been working on some trees today. They do not lay flat at all. Absolutely 3D... I don't know how they would mail. They are very cute though.

    I got to hold my new grand baby this afternoon. Welcome Sophia Comfort. She was born last night. She is very tiny weighing only 6 lbs and 19 long. I'm not allowed to post a pic of her face. Ssssoooo since her feet are adorable too...

    It's too bad there aren't very many swappers. This was a fun one to do. Mine is ready to mail.

    Dotty, thank you so much for re-posting it for me. It is so pretty. I haven't made my card for my mom yet. So will really be looking yours over for inspiration.

    This is the funky Halloween tree card I made for a friend.
