I get to start the gallery off with this card from bigbangmomma for my theme "a portrait of your pet"-

This is Mia, a rescued terrier mix. So cute!

She actually looks a lot like out girl, Piccolo, who is a Jack Russel terrier. Same coloring right down to the pink collar!

Thank you for the sweet card and for rescuing her giving her a good home. We need more people like you!

Thank you. Pet portraits are not easy for me, but I decided to choose a more challenging-and fun- theme. Glad you like it...and her!

I love the graphic style with splashes of pink.

BigBangMomma made this birds in flight card. The owl is wishing the night goodbye and the birds are saying hello to the day. The symbolism is wonderful. Thank you!

Woah! Great job on the Handbot. I remember this episode. They creep-ed me out!

@BigBangMama: Mia looks like a fun furry friend and she definitely has an interesting fur pattern on her head.  Is the rest of her body completely white?

The birds in flight is a cool mixed media piece.  To me, it seems like the smaller flying birds have disturbed the owl's sleep and it's all like, "What's the rush?  It's nap time!"  The owl design has kind of a stained glass quality to it that I also like.

@rockingbearranch:  Never heard of a Handbot (I've only watched like one or two episodes of Dr. Who in my life), but it's a freaky-looking mechanoid.  The spherical head does remind me of the Spider-man villain Mysterio though.  The figure and text look good and I also dig the background (pencil?) shading too; gives it the feel of an old school B&W horror book illustration to me.

My first swapped ATC of the month arrived yesterday afternoon.  Mandykaye, a fellow Michigander, chose my "2NE1" theme. 2NE1 ("To anyone") was a four-woman (CL, Minzy, Bom, and Sandara) South Korean pop band that debuted in 2009 and broke up in 2016. I had never heard of 2NE1 until earlier this year when, on a whim, I picked up a 2-disc set of Korean pop music (dance music on one disc, ballads on the other), which featured two of their songs, "Ugly" and "Hate You", and I was immediately captivated with the latter in particular.



I don't understand a word of Korean, but, thankfully, the titles of those two songs, but not the name of the group itself, were listed in English on the back of the CD jewel case, so, with a little bit of Googling, all was revealed to me. I've spent many hours over the last several months listening to, and watching, their various music videos on YouTube, doing my best to permanently burn 2NE1's music into my brain. Be thankful that you don't have the misfortune of living with me, because, when I really like a song, I'll literally play it on repeat, at full blast, for hours and hours at a time. Professional torturers got nothing on me.

I like almost all of their music, but, here are five of my favorite tracks, if you're interested in seeing/listening to some of their work (and there's plenty more on YouTube if you do a search for 2NE1):

"Can't Nobody"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ihi_kJJj_8A
"Hate You"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NB5jyYD2WEw
"Lollipop" (w/Big Bang, a boy band from their record label)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIRW_elc-rY
"Come Back Home"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLbfv-AAyvQ
"Don't Stop the Music"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5ekB4l-6wg

Like the last time I received an ATC from her, Mandykaye made a unique envelope from scratch to send the card in, using what I believe is a page from a magazine. I subscribe to a lot of periodicals, but, unlike the previous letter, which sported Emma Watson from a Beauty and the Beast Entertainment Weekly cover, I can't say that I recognize this particular image. The photograph of a house and yard is a pleasing one though, and I like that my address is located above the "welcome" sign, right about where a mail box would be attached to the fence. The flan postage stamp is cool too, as I've never seen that foodstuff used to decorate much of anything before.  Addresses have been pixellated for privacy purposes.



Inside of the envelope was this cute card of a fuzzy little bear hunting butterflies.



And, even better, it's a pop-up card with a pretty two-tiered floral arrangement!



As for the ATC itself, in the claims thread, I indicated that the lead singer/rapper CL (Chae-rin Lee) is my favorite, so, that's what Mandykaye did.  In particular, her illustration is based on the second opening scene of the "Can't Nobody" music video I posted above, where CL is driving a car. Mandykaye noted that this was done with ink and watercolor/acrylic paint. The members of 2NE1 have sported a wide variety of hair colors/styles over the years, but CL does seem to prefer being a blonde over anything else.



For comparison purposes:



Mandykaye also included some paper extras. I'm guessing that this is a property card from a board game, but I don't recognize it, The Game of Life or Payday maybe? I dunno, Monopoly is the only one I'm familiar with in that genre.  It's interesting that the card depicts a bird, rather than a cat, with designs on that poor goldfish.



She also sent me some more paper play money (five bills totalling $1,230) which are probably also from board games. I must have been very bad, since that represents about a 94% decrease in my allowance (Mandykaye sent me a $20,000 bill last time!)



Of course, I didn't have that money for long anyway before a certain pony disappeared with it:



Thank you very much for your ATC portrait of one of my favorite ladies in the music industry, Mandykaye, and the extra TLC you put into the envelope and its contents!

Patraw: Haha! Glad you like it! I haven't heard of the group before, but watched the video you linked and was inspired! The song was kinda catchy! The envelope was made from some ad for a lawn chemical I think, but found the message kind of fun to use! The game pieces are from various games but I believe you are right about Payday. Sorry about the decrease in allowance...I've been using it for craft/art supplies  Wink

rockingbearranch: I don't watch Dr. Who, but that looks super cool (and creepy)!!

BigBangMomma: Cute doggie portrait!! And it kinda looks like the owl is giving a "dirty" look to that "Wishing you a perfect day"! LOL I like the different styles of the night bird vs. the day birds.
