Here is my second ATC swap I did with Tee's swaps. go sign up for some great fun! My usual back ground added the paper cameo from a greeting card,some tissue pattern paper, a gold flourish, black cord and a paper rose. I also tried something different this time. I found at a yard sale some 3 1/2 x 21/2 picture frames . Couldn't believe it! The exact same size of the ATC's. So I used on this time to see how well it would work out. With the flap on the back, it makes it come with its own built in stand for show casing. Great! I feel bad because I had two swap partners for this swap and I had them done way ahead and now forgot who got this ATC. I will post next on the other one and post both my partners blogs and you can go there and see when they blog about it. :(:( sorry girls.This is the winter stick pin swap at Tee's that I made. My partner was Valery at Go check out her neat site! Sparkly blue back ground paper stamped in black snow & ice the theme for the swap. Added some icy white, silver, and blue snow flakes. Used the pop up on the white one to sick the pins in. Here are the stick pins I made. Used white, silver, and blue sticking with the theme again. We were to make 3 pins for the swap. Added my info to the back.
Cool in Florida this sat morning, so there will not be many yard sales. So think I will work in art/craft room cleaning and working on some new projects. Then watch the NFL play off's. My Steeler's flubbed out :( Oh well next year. I think I will go over and join the Junk Journal Swap at the new site I joined. This is such a fun site, with lot of swaps. That is the part I like even tho this will only be the second one I joined so far. . I do most of my swapping at Tee's :) Well all for now thanks for looking and come back soon.

  2. Thank you SO MUCH for your lovely wintery aqua tag, Donna. Not only is it my favorite color but it came at a very needed moment and the verse on your envelope was precious to read. Difficult week but I hope to be mailing yours out this weekend. Will be sharing pics soon.

  3. Hi Donna, just popped in to let you know that I received your lovely "Vintage" ATC to-day. What a great idea to make it on a little photo backing. I will be looking at it every day on my bedside table.
    Beautiful...thankyou so much!
    Kind Regards
