|Jan's "Leaves" ATC|
|Jan's handmade card|
Wow! Only in the midwest can it be sunny and 90 degrees one day and a cold, rainy 62 degrees the next. I guess it really is fall...I was sort of hoping September would not pass so quickly. Not because I don't like fall...I just HATE winter! I mean I HATE winter! With fall arriving out of nowhere, this just means winter will be here all too soon! YUK!
Ok, enough bellyaching..on to the good stuff! I received my ATC in the mail from my Blissfull ATC Swap partner, Jan, from Fursdonhouse. The theme for September is Leaves. Jan did an awesome job. I just love it. This is only the second ATC she has made...can you believe it? Can you see the metal leaves hanging from the bottom of the card? They are beautiful. Jan sent the ATC inside another card that I believe she handmade. She is very talented. Thanks so much, Jan!
Jan should be receiving the card I made for the swap any day. Be sure to stop by Fursdonhouse and have a look at mine. I've put a bit of a different spin on the Leaves theme! Also, be sure to check out all the ATC holders at Blissfull ATC Swap. All the participants are making holders for their cards. This contest ends on the 20th! Here is a sneak peek at mine:
Without giving anything away, this is the beginnings (stress: beginnings) of a dress made from scraps which will be sewn onto my card holder. I have never made anything like this before. It has been a lot of fun! I can't wait to see all the participants' holders and cards!
Oh, what do you think of this header? I appreciate the comments regarding the last header. I think I'll keep this one up for a few days and see how this one does. I really like the frame, but I think the picture looks a bit stretched. I might play with it some more and see if I can fix it better. Like the last, this frame is a cluster from Raspberry Road Designs. Their work is great!
Toodles for now!
