Paper Swap # 3

Paper Swap # 3. Cards theme. Hosted by Lawendula of Woven Letters.

I decided to alter 3 playing cards for my swap partner "Moon Mama" Jen. I used paper from very old bridge scoring pads, painted paper scrap and thread to alter the cards and put them together with...
A library issue card and pocket, a Tiki playing card, Lord of the Rings playing card, some vintage ciggerette cards, a few mini playing cards and some old bridge scoring sheets. They'll be sent off tomorrow and this time I will be careful not to pack them parcel thickness instead of letter rate! Lesson learnt;)

These cards are late but as my partner and I both had technical issues  neither of us have posted yet. Word from 'the wise' if you send emails with the term 'swap partner' in the subject line the spam filter will give it an entirely different meaning! Haha!. Better late than never:)

Good you mentioned that! Maybe "paper swap" must be the term one can get no probs or is there a connection between paper and sex?
Maybe one can think about it. (I'm totally innocent!) *lol*

Lovely altered cards, thanks for sharing!

You've succeeded in torturing me with the N.L. Ray novel "Nightmare to Nowhere". What's it about? Do you think there's an interlibrary loan program between Syracuse, NY and Tauranga, NZ? Look into it, please. :)

Looks great! I'm also wondering if they are hand sewn.
