They are completed.........

Oh yes, that's me howling at the moon, because I complete my ATCs and they are in the mail and off to Albuquerque.......oh yeah me. I can't stand it.......and normally I don't give in to this type of excitement.......but shoot....forget it..........here they are...........

























This one is ok........I liked the quote and of course the coppery leaf........



















This one, well I found out the deadline and only had about 5 of the 11 of the cards completed, so I was on a midnight mission....now I look at it and I rather like it........bits of this and bits of that.........















This fair lady....again was done at my midnight session and wasn't sure about her......now I like her.........
















This one is ok, I do like the colors......but otherwise, nothing to write home about.........














Same color scheme, I do like this one.......thinks I fell in love with that little leaf stamp.


This woman almost didn't get to go on the voyage........not sure if you can see it or not, but I used the fine netting on this one..........hey ladies, do you see the back round paper behind the lady??? A friend shared this with me, it is almost like handmade paper.....rather bumpy and rough.....then I can't figure out if they inked with an ink pad or with a brayer...........I would love to take a technique class of some sort........anyone know of something like this online???? If you do, could you please share with me? Thank you. Onwards..........


Totally out of my comfort zone here......and you know I do like bling and sparkle......but just couldn't come up with any ideas so I just started loading up leaves and more leaves........
























Using the whitish leaves with the copper trim was harder than I thought it would be......I like the stamp image tho'............













This little gal----well it was getting late and I was determined to get done before I went to bed..........






Again I am going to repeat myself......this one I really liked.........stamped the little back round piece on what I thought was called mulberry paper........but guess that's not it's called.......it's like tissue paper, but has fibers though it........I like this stuff. Would have liked to keep this one too.........I did make one for myself and it's the least favorite......didn't take a picture of it........so, how do you think the ladies will like them......I'm like a little kid at a birthday party, waiting for the birthday person to open my present and exclaim " I LOVE IT".


Hope some of the cards made you smile..........

Okay . . . I LOVE the lady with the leaf hat and of course the vintage one and the very last one and . . . okay, so you get my point . . . each one is a personal expression and not one "hurts" the eye! Often I find that I do the same thing create something, question it, come back later and love it. Thanks for sharing.

Anyone who plays Dancing Queen on her blog is ok in my book. Love the ATCs. I'm new at them but have to make several for 2 different swaps. I enjoyed looking at yours. I especially liked the lady with the netting.
