Altered Rolodex Cards

I almost forgot, I finished all the altered art Rolodex cards for the swap. I welcome your comments. I added some of my favorite things to my cards to be able to tell you a little about ME. Sunflowers-because they say Spring time and make me smile. The clock face rubber stamp-because when my Dad passed away my Uncle gave me his pocket watch, my Grand father's pocket watch and my Great Grand father's pocket watch he carried in the Civil War. The crown stamp-because 2 of our grand daughters love to play dress up. One of them called me last night and said "NeeNee I want you to buy me a QUEEN and shoes to match the QUEEN". She calls a crown a QUEEN. The lady bug or ant buttons-because it shows my love of flowers and gardening. The rubber stamped words-because they describe my creative side. The torn address-because I always seem to make mistakes and wanted it on purpose this time. I decided if I created a mistake on purpose maybe everything would come together the way I wanted. And last, the tiny postage stamps-because it is a Rolodex card and shows a mailing address and I imagine receiving altered Rolodex cards from so many places of the country.
