Doubledog DARE!! Anyone Want to Trade??!!

Supplies - Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Copics. Paper: Daisy D's , Black Bazzil.
Joanne, honey...just so you know, this one totally threw me!! LOL! Joanne was our hostess with the most-ess for the DDC challenge for this week. She challenged the girls to make a card that says "Spring" and also includes SEEDS!! Seeds. OMG, who has stamps about seeds? Never the less, the amazing and talented DDC girls have all come through with amazing cards!! You need to check them out!! ... I am SO IMPRESSED!! I, on the other hand, was stumped!! Finally, out of no where, I remembered a wheel I had never used from Stamp A Mania called Garden Time. It is seed packets. WHEW!! I have seeds!! Yippeeh!! So I embarked on the Springy seed card. WHAT??? I know, I just went for it. Ran my Garden Time wheel multiple times over white CS (in case I needed to do-overs with my coloring!!), and just started coloring with my Copics. I finally finished but still had no idea what to do with the colored images. So I I cut them out and layered. And layered. And Layered. Lord...this thing became HUMOUNGUS!! It's is one mamma card!! So, I have an idea. I know. Scary . . . I made this card. It's the biggest freakin' card I've ever made and I have no idea what to do with it!! It's 4-3/4" x 8-1/2". So, while I was layering and layering and layering and know, making it bigger and bigger, I thought who the heck am I gonna give this too? What should it say, what else do I add to it?? (you know?!). Then, I started t.h.i.n.k.i.n.g (I know, that's the scary part!!), do YOU want it?? If so, how about a TRADE???!! Do you have something I want?? (Are you following me here on this idea??) I know this is weird. I don't think I've seen the offer on another blog...but... But -- if you DO wanna play along . . . I have this card that I just made, colored with Copics, layered and layered upon Daisy D's DP layers and black Bazzil for TRADE!! What can you trade me??? I would LOVE stamped images that I don't already have, like all those cute Anyas, Tilda Magnolias, the SU latest releases, Artful Inkables, Rubberneckers, etc. etc. , you know girls??!! Right?? Just the stamped images, not the rubbah itself. So, here's my thought.... I'll trade you the card above that I just posted AND the other images I stamped (uncolored) while creating it (which is almost a full page), for some of YOUR uncolored, stamped images that YOU have to offer!! This a trial run... If you want to trade me for this card I just posted and the extra images I stamped while making it, then here's the requirements: 1. Add yourself to my Followers (I know, shameless!!! ) if you're not already. 2. Post a comment with what you have to offer for trade. That's it! I'll pick one and send you my card and the extra uncolored images in exchange for what you offered!! Sorry, it won't be a random pick! I'll just choose the offer that has images that I want for my collection! Any takers????? Thanks for checking in!!

Omg! Seeeeds!! I want it! I'll trade you a photo of Rex and a packet of Theraflu? Just kidding Momsy. I love that seeds are involved though! I don't know why but this totally made me laugh ... In a good way! :) it looks really good. I can't believe you found such a cool way to use that stamp. Nifty! Hope you get something fun!
