Where o' where has August gone! I did manage to squeeze in a Blissfull ATC Swap this month. The theme was FOOD and I was "hungry" for this challenge. I love the "Have A Donut" CL403 stampset from HeroArts and when I found out my swap partner (more about Fran to come) loved coffee in the morning... well, I knew I had to use it. Thus my ATC titled "The Perfect Morning Start" was created.
Since I wanted both coffee and donuts I choose to use a vellum piece to let the (double-sided) donut swing open to show the cup o' joe. A little orange ribbon ties the card closed.
I sent a bag of orange goodies along with my ATC. I've been cleaning house to get ready for school/fall and it felt good to share. Fran loves orange so I know she'll find a use for them.
So, I swapped with Fran, whose blog "thebagglady", is full of vintage items, antique-y charm and rusty goodness. She made this wonderful "Radish" ATC for me! All wrapped up in a piece of a sewing pattern and accompanied with a cute card.
It's the first 3 dimensional ATC I've received. Super creative use of materials.... the mesh bag is fantastic!
Thanks Fran, I hope we'll be able to swap again sometime.
