Yeah!  I get to be first to post my beautiful cards!

I received these lovely ATCs from tristitia.   Grin

She chose my Shakespeare theme and made me this stunning "The Winter's Tale" ATC, complete with snowflake ribbon background (shiny and sheer and oh, so pretty! I took a second photo just to show it off!), and crystals, and a lovely snow maiden.  So elegant and sophisticated!





And--yeah--bonus!  A cheery Christmas dove of peace for Christmas greetings, and a vintage-look flower tag!  So lovely!



What a wonderful package to get in the mail!  Thanks so much, tristitia!  Smiley

my card from Jessiben(:
The theme was your favorite book. She painted a scene from her favorite book. I love it too much.


The quote on the back. (My phone has automatic flash and unfortunately I can't turn it off)

Ooo pretty.  Can I ask what book?  Also, I'm sure you noticed by now, but the second shot is not of the back, just the front again.  Smiley

The book is Christy by Catherine Marshall.
Just one of many, many favorites.  Cheesy

The quote on the back reads...

"The grass was dotted with flowers - I spotted buttercups and the orchid of fairy fringe and the vermillion of fire pinks, and mountain bluets like patches of the sky fallen into the grass...explosions of color".

Oops. Heres the real back. Although you can probably read it better where Jessiben posted it. Tongue

Ooo, I'm liking both of the cards so far... the see through effect is too cool, and the painting is lovely! Great gallery so far, I can't wait to get my first ones finished and sent out!

I rec'd the most wonderful little package today from suereal!  Since she got me into this...LOL...she sent me 4 ATC's to jumpstart my collection.  YAY!!!!  Let me tell you, there was much squeeing over here as we opened them, from both my partner and from me.  Cheesy

First, she sent me an ATC of her avatar, which I love because it will always remind me of her:



And she sent me a picture of her very first ATC, which looks amazing:



(The laminate on them makes them a little hard to photograph, even without the flash, indoors.)

Then, here is where the squeeing started.  She made the most *adorable* little hand drawn fox and rat in love ATC!!!  Oh suereal, we just love it so much.  The little hearts drifting up, the moon, it's just so unbearably cute.  And there is nothing, and I repeat nothing, that makes us as happy as fox/rat and Mulder/Krycek (from X-Files) themed stuff.



And then this *gorgeous* paisley ATC, which has felt applique, embroidery AND beading!  What a knockout piece!



It's just amazing, and we are going to hang it as a Christmas ornament.  You see, we have not had a tree or decorations for many years and are just getting one this year, so we have NO ornaments.  Not one.  I am expecting a few from swaps, including the glittery Christmas ATC's I've asked for here, yay!  And I bought some candy canes, and my son and I are in the process of making some but aren't done yet, and that's it so far!  And other than candy canes, I have resolved to ONLY have handmade ornaments.  So this will have a place of honor as our FIRST, and I hope you feel as honored by that as we intend, suereal.  Smiley

Thank you so much for these.  I love them so much.  And they came after a couple of hard days and brought much happiness.  I really hope you like the one I sent you, too.  What a wonderful way to start my ATC collection, indeed.  This concept is so awesome and I can't wait to have a collection of everyone's artwork.
