Hello, and happy Monday!
Well, I've done a lot of card swaps over the years, but only one ATC swap a few years ago.
I was 'chatting' one day with my friend Melisa, and we thought it would be fun to do one 'sometime'. Well, 'sometime' is like having a $10 bill in your pocket, burning a hole through!
I couldn't get it off my mind, so I sent out a few e-mails, and found some fabulously talented ladies to play along! Shown below are their ATC's. I was thrilled with each one! If you get a chance, stop by their blogs, and give them a hug for a job well done!
This beautiful burgandy and green ATC was done by Olga Jewell. I love the sentiment, and talk about being given the Christmas spirit! Wowzers!
KellyRae Cooper made this wonderfully fun 'short note'. I have to tell you that this is so realistic that there are even little 'bumps' (created with a stylus) on the top!
This elegant creation on Kraft (my favorite, remember?) was made by Maria Matter. Maria is so good at CAS! She's my hero - that is the hardest of all for me!!! This makes me think of an beautiful piece of china.
Oh, the Places You'll Go, is the totally paper pieced, darling masterpiece of Chelsea Comer. Every piece is another layer, and the wheels are adorable little gemstones!
What a beautiful lady that Kim Sears sent. I just can't stop oohing and aahing over the many details - velvet ribbon, pearls, Shimmer misted handmade paper rose, etc...!
My best ever stampin' bud, Shirley, created this lovely background by sponging onto a Spellbinder's Impressionabilities (I think that's what they call them) on white cardstock with blue ink. Is this gorgeous or what?
Melisa Waldorf thrilled us all with this shimmery beauty! It's hard to see, but even the pink cardstock shimmers. I wish you could see it up close in real life!
Last, is my little dreamboat. Isn't she precious? Her little wings are popped up with dimensional dots, and she's thinking very hard about something! (Note the Kraft cardstock? lol...)
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and look at our ATC's. We had a lot of fun. Everyone had their swaps to me on time (before due date actually!), and things went so smoothly, that I'm thinking of doing another swap of some sort (non-ATC) after the first of the year. If you think you might be interested, drop me an e-mail. I'll try to keep it easy peasy and fun!
Hugs to all!
