Blissfull ATC Swap August 2011

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.
