I have been so inspired by so many people lately that my head is spinning.
I am a member of ZNE and recently joined the ATC Swappers Group. This is the my first ATC for the swap.
I also thought of a way to use the wonderful Toile Fabric I received from Susan at Black Berry Creek . This is a 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" Note Card. I put the fabric on the front and then did a collage with it and trimmed it with the cutest butterfly ric rac. I am pretty proud of the way it turned out.
I was also inspired by an image of my friend Jann over at A Vintage Heart's Great Grandmother, Rose. Jann gave her permission to take the image if we so desired and create with it and I did. It is such a cute image and I plan to use it often. In fact I have used it twice here on two different cards. The first one I used transparencies and the second one I used stamps from Inka Stamps and a line from an old Laura Ingles Little House on the Prairie Book. I know you are all gasping...the book is trashed, it is stained and torn and so I will put some of it to good use. I have a very nice copy of the book whick will stay in one piece.
Then I found this really bright colored fabric looking Mat Stack and an image from Victorian Trading Co and a little decor with a gold pen.
These and more will be listed in my Etsy Shop.
I am working on some clay pieces that I am really excited about also. I will probably be finished with them next week. My husband and I are almost complete with the new porch, sidewalk and gutters. We are doing the landscaping around the new porch and the front of the house. Should be finished by Sunday at which time I will post pictures.
