I received 3 fabulous cards.

The first is this wonderful puffin card from Muddy21.  She saw puffins in Maine.  I first saw them in Alaska. Beautiful birds no matter where you see them.


Then I received 2 cards from Pixieval.
"Leaves Falling in Autumn" I love autumn leaves, autumn colors and my autumn ATC.


For artist's choice she made me "Flying Lessons" with a fabulous sticker, 3D bat & hat, and a fabulous broom that she made.


I am a lucky swapper with all my beautiful ATCs
Thanks Muddy21 and Pixieval

Busy day for ATCs today!  I received two with today's mail.  Prepare yourselves...you will be astounded and amazed, as was I when I opened my envelopes!!!  Shocked Shocked

First, I opened this lovely ATC from noooitaremybirthday .  It is titled "Gold House" and is on my theme of Fairy Houses.  Even without the flash the colors are sadly somewhat washed out in the photo.  It really is a lovely warm gold, with almost iridescent fairy wings.  I might have to join the next Chunky Houses swap so I'll have a nice neighborhood for the fairy to live in.


Next, on the combined themes of Artist's Photography and Birds/Birding, I had the good fortune to find this lovely ATC titled "Yellow Finch" in the envelope from SonjaBoo.    The background of the card is the thinnest of thin birch paneling and the photo is one her husband took...it's a beautifully sharp and clear image of one of my favorite birds, American Goldfinch.  They are such bright cheerful things  Cheesy  They're also known as "salad birds" from their habit of hopping from plant to plant, nibbling at seeds, as this one appears to be doing.  Birch seeds, by the way, are a particular favorite of goldfinches!

I'm happy you like it, Muddy! You're right, the colors were a real bugger to photograph. The gold ink just kinda looks dirty in pictures, lol. This pic, there's a big glare on the fairy, but it shows the gold color...kinda.... Smiley

Thanks for posting your picture too, nooo.  It does do better justice to the colors, if not the fairy.  It's amazing how much our eyes do in the way of filtering and adjusting when we look at things.  It's hard to realize until you try to capture something like this with a camera lens!  Roll Eyes

No prob! Smiley

I've decided to share a picture of the Gnome/Mushroom ATC I sent SonjaBoo, as she got it a few days ago, I'll save her the trouble and post it Smiley Plus, I'm too excited about it, lol.



The gnome and shroom are watercolor and drawing ink, and the feather is from my sun conure parrot Smiley

I'm so glad you like it! Yeah, I did wrap the wire. It was a fiddly process, but I think I'd like to try it again.

I was lucky enough to receive some fantastic goodies today!

First, an awesome movable ATC from MunLtStmpr! These next two pics are of the same card, Mun did some paper magic, so that each side opens up to reveal another bird photo, so there are 4 different photos in one ATC. VERY cool! They are all photos she took of local birds Smiley



And then she sent me some SWEET bonus material, a bonus fold out movable robot ATC:

And this amazing hand-carved stamp Mun made featuring some of my doodles from a postcard I sent her a while ago Smiley I'm sooo floored that she made this for me! Thank you so much, Mun!!!


I also received a very sweet Chicken ATC from Muddy21 today! It's a photo of one of her hens, a timid little rescue chicken, hiding behind a leaf. I would loooove to have chickens again someday Smiley
A very inspirational quote, too.

Thank you Muddy. I love it!
