My post today is just a sampler of the projects I've been working on for the last couple of months.
This ATC was made for the VPI Yahoo Group where the theme was Take a Shape.
This ATC was another card made for the group A Year of ATC's. This was my August entry. And that brings me up to date with updating my blog. Thanks for stopping by!

I made these two ATC's for a swap with the VPI Yahoo Group where the theme is Wild Blue Yonder hosted by Jan Larson. I used a wonderful digital kit created by Finecraft Designs at Deviant Scrap. The title of the kit is also Wild Blue Yonder. Hope you like them Jan!

I made these cards for a swap with the VPI Yahoo Group and the theme is one of my favorite. I love working with images from the circus and found this really nice digital kit from Digital Scrapbook Place. I designed the cards in Photoshop and then printed each element so I could cut and paste them onto the 2.5 x 3.5 ATC.

I am hosting a swap with the VPI Group and the theme is "Breakfast at Tiffany's." Audrey Hepburn was such a beautiful woman and I enjoyed working with these publicity pictures promoting the movie.
Thanks for stopping by!

I found two of these metal frames at a flea market back during the summer and just had to have them. I didn't know what I would do with them at the time so I just put them away for safe keeping. I was cleaning up my scrap room and came across them again and knew right away that they needed some TLC. Out came the box of old broken and unloved jewelry (and some newer pieces too) and the E6000 glue and this is what I came up with. I truly love the way it turned out! I am hosting a swap with my Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group and we are all going to make one and send to our partner. Ooh La La!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Silence is Golden is the name of a swap I am hosting with the VPI Group. Tonight I worked on my design and was happy with the way the card turned out. It wasn't what I had imagined in my head, but it came out as a pleasant surprise. Theda Bara is such an icon of the silent film era. I guess she would fall into the category of "vamp" because of the parts she played. Who can forget her immortal character of Cleopatra in 1917 and the elaborate costumes she wore! The film was considered risqué and unfortunately the ast two films of it were destroyed in a fire at the Fox Studios.

I have been out of the loop for so long due to one thing or another. I've been itching to start cutting paper and playing with glue again for a while, so I signed up for several ATC swaps. These cards are the ones I made for a swap with the VPI Group where the theme is, "Love, Marilyn" just in time for Valentine's Day.

He's finally here! He arrived on Nov. 14th at 5:55pm and weighed 7 lbs 13 oz and was 21 inches long. He is our early Christmas present, and we are so excited to finally meet him. I would sit and hold him 24/7, but his parents don't think it's a good idea...LOL!

I can not believe how fast this year has gone by! This week we will celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, and as soon as we blink our eyes, it will be Christmas. I noticed that the stores had Christmas stuff right along side the Halloween stuff this year. Two of the local radio stations are already playing 24-7 Christmas music. Is it me or are the stores pushing Christmas upon us this year? No matter, it's a wonderful time, and it's good to be with the family celebrating around the tree and enjoying good food.
Here are several ATC cards I made for a swap with the gals in the VPI Group. The theme is Open Theme Christmas, one of my favorites.

The International Quilt Festival was unbelievable; so many quilts and vendors, it made my head spin. It took us three days to make the journey around the convention center. We saw so many beautiful quilts and even more vendors selling everything you could possibly think of. I purchased a few small kits that I can work on at night while watching TV.
This is the view from upstairs looking to the right. I tell you this is only one small portion of what was inside this convention hall.
On Saturday we ventured down to Galveston to see the Gulf of Mexico. It was 89 degrees and the water was warm. We put our feet in and walked up and down the beach looking for shells. We had lunch at Bubba Gumps and tried the shrimp sampler. We also had their famous hush puppies.....yummmm!
