June Black/Grey Swap

So last month's theme for A Swap for All Seasons was Guy and black/grey. My partner sending to me was Elizabeth, she was really on the ball and got her package out early, I received it May 16th. Here's what I saw when I opened the package:
 I love how she packaged everything, it's so cute. And here's what was in the packages:
 some tool images, buttons, washi tape, trim, tiny bags, tags and some flowers. Here are the tag and card she sent me:
 Very cute! She said she didn't have a lot of guy stuff, but I love what she came up with.

I don't do much guy crafting either, but I found a lot of cowboy stuff in my craft stash, so I ran with it. My partner to send to was Pam, here's what I sent her:
Like I said, I ran with the cowboy theme. The tag, I used a paint chip for the background, and I found this picture of the two weightlifters and added that, along with some guy colored ribbon.
I found the stamped pocket and thought it would be a great idea to make a card kinda like a pair of pants with the pocket as a real pocket. I used the cowboy hat, cowboy and cowboy boots charm to make an ATC to put in the pocket. The "Stud" is from a playing card. I really liked how this card turned out.
Here's what I sent for destash:
Some vintage car stickers, a bunch of black tiny folders, some black and white fabric, some beads, some punches, a vintage photo,
Another pocket, some "guy" book pages and a black and white canvas frame.

I love that aspect too. I host a group on Yahoo, where I send people packets of stuff and they make ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) with at least one item in the packet. I always loved seeing what people created with them. Unfortunately, most of the people in the group don't want to play anymore, so I have to find other ways to be creative, A swap for all seasons being one of them.
