From our lovely organizer, Jillybeans:

What a wonderful start to the "birds in hats" theme!

I also LOVE the card she sent it in:


And some lovely extras!!

Yay!  I'm glad you like it!  Also, I got the cards from Michaels.  They were like $1.50 for a pack of 6 or something.  They had ones with strawberries and lemons, too.  I also got some fun circus ones there, too.  I love getting cheap cards at Michaels!  I also just got some packs of 6 that have letters on the front of the card and metallic envelopes for $.80!  Yay clearance!  I like sending my ATCs in cards and taping them inside the card.  I feel like they have a better chance of arriving in tact that way.

 Those penguins are adorable! Love the way you did the edges.
 I had to laugh at the card. I sent mine in the strawberry ones! LOL! And I bought the Letter cards in "R", "L", and "G"'s. For both my last names and Gozer. Hahaha! Gotta love the cards at Michael's!

Where the heck do you get your craft supplies?  Do you order online?  :-)  I am so EXCITED there is a TWO story Michaels going in a block from work!  woo hoo.

Love love love the Penguins.

I also buy my cards to mail ATC's in from Michaels for a 1.00 or 1.50 a pkg, can't beat that!

I got a whole bunch of vintage emphemera from teachart in the IYP20 swap.  I also used tim holtz distressing ink pads for the brown vintagy look, adirondak black paint dabbers for the edges and white under the letters, and Elmer's painters paint pens for the dots (I have a variety of colors from when I did the Elmer's Master Crafster and they sent me a box of fun!)  I pretty much use those three items ALL THE TIME.  I used watercolor paper and watercolors for the hats.  Annnnnd I got the paint the dabbers and distressing ink pads from Michaels.

A two story Michaels?!  I'm excited to be getting a Hobby Lobby right next door to my michaels which is a like a 5 minute drive from my house.
