Ok wow the gallery has really blown up! I am busy making notes on books to read too. The abilty of an organier to match partners is uncanny at times, and my partner and I are no exception, although I dont want to say any more until Cadet receives.
Heres the book, one Ive been really hoping for since the series came out on Netflix, The haunting of Hill House.

I grew up reading Stephen King, and this little hoopla is perfect. One of the spines says King.

Love the book and hoopla ( and chocolates), thanks Cadet!

I feel terrible, I received this abstract ATC from Rockingbearranch but life has been crazy these past few weeks
This reminds me of a scene in David Lynchs Twin Peaks (I forget which episode), where the camera makes a long in depth study of the holes in the ceiling for a minute... needless to say, i love it!
It also came with some sweet paper goodies, thanks RBR! Sorry it took me forever to post.

Wow I missed out on so much awesomeness here! Sorry for being MIA, the last couple weeks have been rough/miserable/stupid terrible.
But I have gotten some amazing art too, from WiccadWitch and MountainsAndClouds.
First theres this guy from WiccadWitch, such a cute and detailed bat. I absolutely love bats, and this lil one made my day. Im so sorry it took forever to post it tho.

For my something magical theme, MountainsAndClouds sent me two beauties, a gorgeous blue haired flower fairy, and this subtlety sparkly crescent moon card. I really love the color blue, and blue and yellow together is even better.

For those wondering about the gold and blue paints I used in the hare atc and other cards, they are Inka Gold. I got them on Amazon. The gold was sorta dried up, but the blue was nice and soft, I just use a fingertip to spread it over stencils mostly.

Thanks all!

Gorgeous galaxy card!
So I got these two amazing cards, one each from Mandykaye and Craftylittlemonkey, they took my breath away.
From Mandykaye, this is the sweetest kitty, for my something magical theme. I love black cats!

From CLM, a mashup of a few themes, bats, night sky, fiber arts. The stitching is perfect, theres little beads on each star, the moon has the 3D element too.

Thanks Mandy and CLM

I love the kindness flag, you make me want to work on my stitching again  Cheesy
And the She Persisted flags are amazing! Is that glitter fabric paint? I love it!
Chameleonhound, thats a lot of flowers! Its beautiful and congrats on the new job!

I got my flag from Dharma_rebel today, and I LOVE it, it could not be more perfect for me. My pictures cant do it justice, it wont pick up the shine of the embroidery thread, but I think youll get the point.
It says: You are a symphony of stardust and you were born to shine  Grin i love the tiny spaceship and the shooting star especially.

Here it is hanging up in my kitchen

And I finished my flag today too. Another woven one, and I kinda wish I had used the same method for the saying on Dharma_rebels flag. I was just so embarrassed about my own embroidery skills that I panicked about how to put something on.
It says deep and simple

Wow, the cards this round are really incredible. Mandy, the mountains and buildings cards are gorgeous, as is the little kitty card. Cmarion, your desk is so interesting and I adore your style. WideEyedLife, the bird feeder card is amazing, i love how you made it. As for the card i sent to Mandykaye, i just did a light wash with different paints, made a stencil of the images and painted with black acrylic around them. Then I added some pearlescent details, as well as the stars. Im pretty sure I saw something similar to it on Pinterest and stored the idea away until now.

So I received two cards this weekend. The first is also from cmarion3, for my something magical theme, and I love it! Its a recipe got a magical sounding dessert.

I received this sweet embroidered card from Susie Apples, inspired by my Pinterest. It has an awesome 80s/ early 90s feel, and a cute alien dude.

There does seem to be a tiny bit of flaking around the alien face, Im not sure what the material used is, or if I should carefully put mod poge over the image to preserve it?  Let me know if you have any advice, Susie.
Thank you both for such fun cards!

Rosie1981 sent me 2 acrylic pour Atcs
Ive kind of been obsessed with watching YouTube videos about this, the cells that form and just the way the paint moves around the surface. So glad to add these to my ATC collection, thanks Rosie, theyre lovely!
