what do you see…something fishy from Switzerland comes

smooshed tin number two has arrived for our QB5 swap

and mine with the Live Laugh Love zipper makes three…

Margaret let her sense of humor shine through…along with her metal punching skills…really fabulous…

I am wondering if she and Eloise are one and the same…

fun king fish riding the bike too…

so far we have mine...Linda’s and Margaret’s on the jump ring…

so neat to see what ingredients each person ends up using from what I sent them…

I can’t decide whether I’ll use this side of the tin I altered on top

or this side…

that chocolate rabbit button arrived from Impress Rubber Stamps and hopped right onto my tin ;)…

nice thing about the jump ring is the tins go on and off easily…

  6. I love the Eloise tag! LoL. She IS a grumpy gus! — gives me an idea about dangling something from your tin (might work on it today!)

  7. Oh, and forgot to comment on your “which side?” dilemma. They both look good! Flip a coin! My coasters don’t have a front or back. ALL of the art is fabulous!

  22. Reporting the outcome of smashed tin inspiration! I altered one of those Polish pate tins, and I just love how the texture turned out, although I’ve done waaaaay less than yours have. Already thinking about the next tin and possibly using the outside, which is all golden color 🙂

  23. Patty, This is one of those collaborative efforts where I wish I could reach into the computer and hold these pieces in my hands. “Sardine Hater”….!!!! Margaret’s rendition is so FUN! I was under the misguided notion that the stamped zipper rendition was the flip side of Linda’s….and do I ever adore the other side of your squished tin. Xo, Sue
