ATC's and lovely post!

Here is an ATC I have made this week for Robbie at my evening class' birthday. It is a significant one! We al make a card in our style and then Robbie will have to guess which is who's in the class. I guess she will pick mine out quickly as I decided to do something in the style of my hanging.

This ATC I have made for Val, a friend of mine as I got her card in the Fiber ATC trade and she did not get one of mine. So I had some of the fabric left over and made her one. Below your will see the card she sent me. It is a velvet background with lovely foil and bondaweb etc on it. She made it as part of the Altering the surface challenge on Textile challenges.

This card also arrived in the post this week. It is from Jo Wholohan in Australia. I had told her about my like for al things "altered" but my lack of vision for actually making it myself. So kindly she has agreed to trade with me. I recieved this most beautiful card. I have not made one i return yet, as I really want to have a good go at doing something as delicious as this card, not my usual fall back techniques. I really want to do her justice as she was so kind to share such a lovely card for me.

And finally as for the hanging, it is FINISHED!!!!! Hooray, well all bar the shouting. I have to finish the beads and attach them and then it would be done! So that's why I haven't added a photo as I would like to get it all finally done. It has got so large though! but I am very pleased with it. It's a big bugger though!
