It's a Mystery!

I love stamping and creating cards, that's no surprise to you who follow my blog. I own many many stamps (too many, in fact, which is part of the reason why I'm having a Stamping/Scrapping ONLY yard sale this weekend.... wish you lived close enough to stop by. There will be lots of fun, great bargains, and even some Make and Takes, if you arrive early enough.)

I also love my stamping friends - I have many online friends (thanks to Splitcoast Stampers)! One of the fun things about online friends is that we share encourage one another in this creative outlet that we love.

Karly is the hostess of the current round of the Mystery group. What is the MYSTERY group? We are a group that swaps cards every two months, with a different hostess each round. When the cards are mailed back to us, included in the envelope is the images for the next round, provided by the one who will be the hostess. No one else knows what they will be until they arrive in our mailboxes....... and no matter what they are, we are to use them to create cards for the next round. FUN!!!

Oh, and we aren't supposed to post pictures of our cards until the due date, so the rest of the Mystery swappers can't see our cards until after they have created theirs. ;) These were due September 18, so now I'm posting pictures of mine!

Karly sent us an adorable hedgehog image (Penny Black Acrobat).

Here's my card:

This closeup picture shows some of the details, like the Stickles (glitter glue) on the flower centers and the teeny tiny brad eye:

I decorated the inside of my card, too:

I hope Karly and the Mystery swappers like my card! I can't wait to see theirs, too!!!

Thanks for a great image, Karly! You're fantastic!!!
