Rolodex Art Love

Right smack dab in the middle of the season's preparations...the gift making and wrapping and card writing and stollen baking...I discover and fall in love with altered rolodex cards.
So I have to get involved immediately with two rolodex card swaps. There's no waiting even for a moment. Here's my first card (I made one similar and mailed it to my swap partner already!)

Here's the underside of the second card I made. This partner wanted 2012 on the card somewhere so I made the "Fig." reference number 2012. That should suffice.

As kismet would have it, two weeks ago I was at my favorite local thrift store and I asked the stock person if they ever get in any rolodex card holders and he said rarely but they do come in sometimes. Well I'd been looking for months actually so I just thought to myself that I'd have to be more diligent. Not even 10 minutes later the worker came onto the loudspeaker asking if the lady wanting the rolodex was still in the store. I was and got THIS holder for $2.99 complete with a full load of cards. New, they cost $60.00 so I'm pretty happy.

This is the main side of the second card. I'd found this old wrapping paper with a pink background and glued that down onto the card and just went from there. The 'butterfly' image dictated the direction.

So it is back to bird making now (home made presents this year!). Nice to see you; we'll talk soon I hope.
