Mystery Solved

Or maybe I should say, a couple of mysteries solved!

I've been MIA from my blog.  First on a road trip, now because of family home for Thanksgiving--a week long reunion here.  I'll do my best to catch up on some art and visiting my cyberfriends' blogs when there's a little down time around here.  

A while back I was in a Red Lead Sisters Swap for Halloween Postcard Tags.  It was a long time coming, but my swapped out tags mysteriously showed up today.  How appropriate for Thanksgiving week, as I'm very thankful this wonderful art wasn't lost.  First I'll show you what I made for the swap.  This one I saved for this post:
I used the same Red Lead stamp set for all three tags.  For this one, I also used some G45 Alice papers and Maya Road ribbon.

These are the two that I previously posted:













And today here's what I received from my swap sisters:
Isn't their work amazing? Now you know why I was anxious to get these delivered in the mail! Thanks Carolyn, Dottee, and Jackie!

For participating in the swap, we also got from Chris and Sharon a set of post mark stamps, including a St. Louis Red Lead one. What fun!
