A pretty card and a beautiful sentiment for Earth Day!

I'm getting a total flower power vintage vibe from this outfit!

I decided this outfit was perfect for Harbinger. Doesn't she look great? Thanks, Whisper and hugosdaughter!

I'm mailing my partner's gift tomorrow, and I'm sending everyone who participated in this swap a haiku card. Be on the lookout!

That’s a really cute outfit—Eiri is so nice to share it with Harbinger! I love the flower headband...

I'm glad you like it.  I enjoyed making it and the beading on the top was fun to do.

A most interesting box.  Packages sealed with stickers and a card.

The pictures do not do the card justice.  The inside verse is most fitting.
The back reads "Color me"  I will soon.

The seed bombs will be planted in my garden.  It is still too cold -  We must wait for Memorial day to ensure they will germinate.

We love everything.  The dress and headband bring Spring to the doll shelf.  Whisper has her own plant and a pet turtle and I have candy.

Thank you for making Earth Day so special.

Hugosdaughter, Glad to see that the swap goodies reached you and Whisper. Hopefully the spring time dress, headband, and other stuff will help you both pass the time while you wait for the winter chill to thaw so you can plant those seed bombs.

My big dilemma was deciding what kind of pet to send Whisper...I was trying to decide amongst a turtle, a snail, and a frog. Obviously, the turtle won. Smile

Sanada received a lovely package the other day. Here she is with her new turtle dress, flower headband, turtle necklace, and little turtle. Thanks so much, TrueFan!

Here are the four cards I made for Earth Day from a book of haiku that was discarded at my library. I intended them to be a little more repurposed-book-arty, but it turns out I'm terrible at turning old book pages into art. So I framed them instead.

Tinkerbell finally got a chance to open her swap gifts from dargosmydaddy and Sanada today.
April: Earth Day swap - Page 2 46868375055_58213724f4
First is the lovely card.

April: Earth Day swap - Page 2 47732528902_89a09bc41e
Tinkerbell: I can fly with my new wings and cute dress!  Can I try jumping out of this cat tree?
Me: No.

April: Earth Day swap - Page 2 47732529342_6b0c7fd401
Next is a pretty butterfly print dress, matching barrettes, and a new bird friend.
Tinkerbell: This bird matches my dress!  I'll have to keep it safe from the resident felines.

Thanks dargosmydaddy and Sanada!

I managed to break her arm twice today.  First, taking off her dress to redress her, at the usual upper arm joint.  Then again when I was trying to remove the arm I borrowed temporarily from my sewing body so I could take the photos.  It was kind of hard to get the peg to go in the shoulder and when I tried to remove it, it snapped off leaving the peg in the shoulder!  I decided to stop and try another day before I break anything else.

Oh no, broken arm disasters!

But the butterfly dress is super cute.

So much cuteness! Those dresses look great on her...and her birdie pal is adorable. Sorry to hear about the broken arm though!

-------------------

I think I received some swap stuff in the mail on Saturday. But....it's been a busy weekend, so I haven't gotten around to opening it yet. Hopefully soon.
Very Happy

Well, I first read that as you broke *your* arm (twice!), so... it could be worse? Shocked

Serina: "Hey...I know you're in the middle of binge-watching Game of Thrones, but...can we open this?! Please and thank-you."

April: Earth Day swap - Page 2 47745635702_913a08a5d2
Serina:  "Look at this pretty card!  It's from Tinkerbell and Cornflower Blue.  I love the butterfly and the curling ribbon tree and the sparkling paper.  On the inside, it says 'the earth laughs in flowers' by Ralph Waldo Emerson.'"

April: Earth Day swap - Page 2 40831628753_0ed191aec8
Serina:  "Cornflower Blue & Tinkerbell--Thank you for this backdrop!  I love it."
Ummm, Serina?  That backdrop needs to be unwrapped--your gift is inside.

April: Earth Day swap - Page 2 33920835408_8cac1bc8fc
Serina:  "Thanks so much Cornflower Blue & Tinkerbell!  I think this is exactly what the quote on the inside of the card meant--all these flowers look like a very joyful earth.  This dress is beautiful and I love all everything about it!"

This floral print dress is amazing!  I love the beaded belt accent, the blue rose necklace and the matching hair bow.  The dress has tiers that make it really fan out, and there is a lacy underskirt to help it look even fuller.  Serina is really a very lucky Dal.
