Good morning all! It is a glorious morning here on the Oregon Coast! The sky is such a beautiful blue this morning and I bet the ocean is looking beautiful too! I had to share with you what I received and what I sent in this super fun ATC exchange. Exchanging items with folks from other countries who share common interests is so much fun. A long time ago I had two stamp pals who I exchanged stamped items with, one from Australia and one from Hawaii, and I loved it! I still treasure those items and I am still in contact with my friend in Australia, Frances Byrne . You can click on her name and see her blog, she does fantastic work!
O.K. on to the exchange. It started with a simple question by Nikki Woodward on the Stampotique facebook page asking if there had ever been an ATC exchange. Well, a bunch of us jumped on that and wanted to take part! I think there were 16 this time and others want to take part in the next. I hope it just continues on because it was so much fun!!
Nikki put the whole thing together for us. The theme was "Beloved". I drew Karen Hayselden's name. Karen lives in the U.K., and this is the artist trading card that I made for her:
ATC's are the specific size of 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.
Corrie Herriman drew my name. Corrie lives in Netherlands and here is what she sent to me:
This was the ATC that she made for the exchange, along with the darling little envelope that it came in. I just love it!!
She also sent me this ATC because when I saw it on the Stampotique facebook page I jokingly asked her if I could have it, should she draw my name in the exchange hee, hee!! (I'm so spoiled!):
Bird Lady, isn't she so cool?! She was also in a cute little envelope and the ATC's were inside of this cool card:
This was so much fun, and I can't wait to do it again!!!
Have a fabulous weekend and go stamp something!
