this is a mixed media postcard that i've mailed off to one of the angels that bless my life.

i hope that it brings a smile to her beautiful face.

these two atc's are a couple of my newest acquisitions.

aren't they wonderful~!?  the sensitive knight card is digitally made  and the fancy lady is a traditional cut and paste.  they are both made by Terri Daugherty of Pixels and Paste.

this lovely Vintage Butterfly card came from the Sparkly Fairy in the U.K.
i love it's old fashioned monotone sweetness.

this adorable spring robin card came from Joy Northrop.
i've traded with her before and LOVE her work.
i have yet to see any spring robins in the yard so until i spot one her tiny card is perched prominently where i can see it and dream about warmer days.

hmmmmmmm . . .  confetti, fancy plates and  "cake" . . .
what could it all mean?

for the last couple of days i've been working on some birthday "cake": a short stack of scrappy 3.5 inch (finished) hour glass blocks.
i can't say too much or i may give away a surprise . . .
but there will definitely be a party happening~!

i've realized that i am behind on documenting my ATC's. i completed a couple of trades before Christmas and have created a few new cards of my own as well. today i'll just catch up with the previously traded/received cards.

these two cards (Red Hill and Zombie) were created by "Anselmiina" via the flickr website. they were worked using Copic markers and my photos don't give her art the true justice it deserves. i'm thrilled to have them within my collection~!!~ Anselmiina lives and works in Finland and thanks to her i now have a lust for these interesting (and very expensive) pens.
in return i sent her the Glyph Turtles and MeMa's House/Love cards. she seemed pleased and i'm looking forward to future trades with her.

the next two cards were received from Amy Nieman of Paper & Glustix.
they were also traded via the flickr website but i'm thrilled to have since discovered her blog.
she's a mixed media/collage artist superstar and has even been published.
pretty cute ~ huh!?!
in return she received my Lost/Fish card and this one that i titled A Square Peg's Wish.

i hope to be able to document some more of the cards that i've made recently within the next few days.
