pilarfarmer chose me for a cat theme but she also saw that I like moveables so she made me 2!!  They are both so great.

I absolutely adore bright colors. I love this card!

Black cats are my alltime favorite. I have never met one I did not love. The head and tail move on this card.
thank you so much, pilarfarmer. THey are just awesome.

I received a fabulous piece from my (mystery) partner. I know her real name, but not her Craftster name...

This is soooooo me!!  I am a totally Green person, nature lover, and adore fabric pieces.  Whoever you are, thank you so much. It took me exactly 60 seconds to hang it on my wall!!

I did a personal swap, ATCs with dreadlady. She has received but has a family member in hospital so she said I could post what I sent her.

because she likes sewn things on words and also likes owls...

for her fortune teller theme and also looking thru windows theme....

because she had maps on her pinterest...

she likes bird silhouttes...

and zentangles and turtles...

It was a fun package to create.

dreadlady had some probs with the mail and just today i got these 2 gorgeous shrooms cards...

they are stunning, and right up my alley.  Thank you so much, dreadlady. You did an awesome job.  Do not have a fave, they are both so great.

Kitty Herman and I did a personal swap - one 4x6 and 6 ATCs.  What a haul I got..... this is one talented artist!!  Every time I looked at the next piece, I was floored.
Here is the 4x6

It is the view she has each morning as her cat wakes her up to ask for breakfast. Such an unusual look - so very creative.  Charcoal.

On to the incredible ATCs

for my request for mushrooms. Kitty claims she is new at watercolors.  Sooooo hard to believe. This is a stunning piece of work in the medium.

for my pet rat theme.  I have had 3 awesome pet rats in my life. Kitty has also experienced the joy of loving pet rats. So good to hear when someone else understands that they are clean, loving, and clever, not the nasty creatures many folks make them out to be.  I love this card. He is adorable.

For my "birth year" theme.... (1963). The Beatles were big. Here is a very very funny pencil depiction of the madness....   Ya gotta luv the Ringo fan....!

I had both daisies and ladybugs on my list. Here is a sweet combo of them. Makes me all happy inside just to look at it.

For my red fox theme. They are such gorgeous creatures. I cry when I see them dead in the road. Here is one titled "Alone but not lonely".  He is being kept silent company by a couple of chummy shrooms.

Lastly, on my ivy theme...

Yes, the leaves are real and somehow Kitty managed to treat them so they would arrive looking like they had just been picked. Some very cool background on this card, too.

Kitty Herman, you are THE BOMB. I couldn't possibly be happier with every single piece you made for me. Obviously you worked very very hard to cater to my wishes.  I would trade with you again in a heartbeat.

I'm so sorry for your loss, I know how hard it is.  Your ATC is a wonderful way to express your love for Gaberlin, it's lovely.

Thank you. Yes, art is a good way to express a lot of things.

Two and a half hours ago, I awoke in the middle of the night. For no apparent reason. I told my husband that I was unusually wide awake and if I could not get back to sleep in 10 minutes, I would get up and do some things.  Within 5 minutes I was up. The first thing I do when I get up or come home is look for my cat Gabe, who has been "on his way out" for several months now, just to be sure he is ok.
He was nowhere to be found. I woke my husband up and we looked together. We found him wedged in a tiny nook in the kitchen where he had gone to die. He was still warm. I am convinced he woke me up somehow to retrieve him and say goodbye.
I will miss this cat like no other. He was amazing.  I even wrote a children's novel based on him.
My husband, after drying my tears, went back to bed. I needed some art therapy so did this ATC of my beloved.
I will always love you, Gaberlin.

Thanks for all the advice...........The book pages has DEFINITELY won this one  Grin
and Blupaisan, I like the watercolor wash idea.  I have already gotten the ATC cards glued to the book pages board, but I can still go around them with a light wash and them the frame.  I already had the frame and glass that had an old picture in it so this was basically a free project!!!

Will post a final pic when done, hopefully this weekend.


yay!  Can't wait to see it...
