A Swap for All Seasons

This is my first time participating in this swap.  We were to make a Christmas card and tag and send along some green stash to our recipient.  Here is a photo of my card and tag:

I forgot to take a photo of the green items I sent to Linda.  Perhaps she will share. 

Thanks to Linda Smith at A Swap for All Seasons for such a fun swap.  I definitely want to do this again!

Here is my ATC for this month's lottery at the Paper Traders Yahoo group.  I was hoping I could get one made before the month was over and I finally did.

The image and faux postage stamp are from ArtChix Studio.  I created my background by white embossing an Impression Obsession stamp and adding distress inks over it.  The snowflake punches are from Martha Stewart and the crown punch is from EK Success.  I added sequins with gems in the middle and some blue chenille trim.  The title is computer generated. 

Sure would love to win this lottery - there are some fabulous creations there this month!

flat artys

The Paper Traders Yahoo group has a lot of fun swaps.  Cathy Calamas is currently hosting a 4 for 4 ATC swap for "flat artys".

The ATC's must have only one layer with no 3D embellishments.  I used rubber stamps, distress inks, colored pencils and Stickles glitter to create mine.  Am looking forward to seeing the four ATC's I will get back from this swap!
