I'm back...taking a break for sewing and preparing for my first craft show! Eek! I did manage to squeeze in a quick swap with the Blissfull ATC group. The theme this month was "Thankful" and I've a lot to be thankful for. More on that in a bit....
I received this beautiful ATC from Mercedes at All Things Pretty. Turns out it's her first time swapping with Blissfull and mine was last November. (How has the year flown?) Mercedes does such wonderful work. In person this ATC shines with just the right amount of sparkle. Like fireworks on the fourth of July.
Even the back was pretty. And I'm thankful to be an American as well.
I sent this ATC titled "Walking with Grandpa". My first time using a photo in an ATC. I took this picture in October of my Father and Ruby while hiking and looking at waterfalls in Upper MI. (I've yet to post! Sorry.) It was one of those moments where I remembered my camera and captured it perfectly. It melts my heart.
I punched all the little leaves and glued/placed them around the "frame" with a tooth pick so as to get them just right. Embroidery thread holds the frame in place.
I'm thankful for my family and the time with them. I'm blessed.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
