Sketchy Card Swap

I've just finished a Sketchy Card Swap for  In This House and Garden,  a yahoo group hosted by Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn.  Here is Angela's artful blog and Sarah's is here

Each person in the swap sketched a design for a playing card, which we copied 54 times, so that each one will have a full set of cards.   Mine, of course, is the King of Diamonds.

Swappers can attach each design to a card in the deck or use them in some other original way.  The photos of the sketches so far are very whimsical and fun and I'm looking forward to receiving mine.

This is a great yahoo group, so take a look and see if you're interested.  There are lots of creative swaps, although this is the first that I've participated in. 

I hope you do something artful and fun today!
