The Winning Hand Swap

Yeah! I can finally share what I have been up to for the last couple of weeks!

This little Queen of Hearts was my main inspiration for the Sweet Goodness Swaps "Winning Hand" swap.

And, this little gal inspired...

Suite Sisters

a gaggle of girlfriends! Most of their dresses were designs from vintage playing cards. Bob Fossy meets Black Apple Doll.

I noticed that my partner, Em of 10,00o Beads had repurposed found objects in some of her creations, so I didn't think she would mind some odds and ends. I thrifted the beads and tossed in all sorts of lonely earrings and charms for her to create with.

I had seen these candy boxes reused on several blogs and it all fit just right. I also managed to find a tiny clubs shaped pan and some Dutch Chocolate "Casino Coins" to round out the package. I think this may just be my favorite swap challenge yet!

I knew when I saw the rules for the swap that it was over my head so I didn't enter. I also was hoping that you had entered so that I could see your ideas. The girls are beautiful!! I knew that you would come up with something great!
