The Heart I received is the one with the lovely yellow flower in the middle...I love yellow and am fond of wine LOl! It is definitely suitable for framing!
The second shows the actual peices I contributed.
Here are the finished products of the Heart Puzzle Swap. Six ladies (including me) took 8 pieces of a heart puzzle...all the pieces being mixed so no one worked on their own but all worked on everyone elses...and altered to our 'heart's' delight! The results are so fun! Thanks to Dove, Kas, Kimberly, Kristal and Phyll! You ladies ROCK!

So here is a picture of my felt skeleton...rather looks like a bride, so I think she needs a groom...and she is sitting on my hat (veils of gold with black cats, black lace in front with a skeleton attached), my spell wand from a branch that I glittered, rhinestoned & feathered and my "poison" apple. That campsite will never be the same, trust me!! A good time was had by all!
Okay, so there were 13 of us all wearing witches hats, holding our wands and chanting spells over the fire...then, after burning our paper spells and notions in a caldron, we walked under the full moon (1/2 mile one way) to the edge of the lake and dumped the ashes in the water...hey, it's how witches do it, I guess :o)) Either way, I'm sure we scared a few other campers that night...wearing hats, waving wands, repeating spells...what a hoot!!
OMG, so much has happened over the last month or so. But, let's just get down to business. I finished my second Halloween matchbox anad it is now off to her rightful owner along with the tombstone one.
Then I joined my dear friend for a few days of camping and a Witches Birthday party for her! This was quite interesting and included making witches hats, spell wands, poison apples and felt skeletons!
