the artful bag challenge atc swap

Hello everyone! I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend. Did you have beautiful Spring weather? We had clouds, a cold breeze and a few showers here and there. Very unusual for this time of the year when we normally start to hit the 80's by now. But I'm so much more fond of cool weather and this is just fine with me.

It's time to share all the beautiful ATCs we sent and recieved. Hopefully everyone got one from their partners by now and if you haven't you can always add another post later. My wonderful swap partner, Ana, is from Brazil and she let me know that the mail there can take even longer so I know her card is on it's way.

But I can share the one I sent to her (hopefully she got it already) and right below is a Linky so you can link up your ATC post. You can also add your own ATC card to the Artful Bag Challenge group pool on Flickr. The link is at the top of the page on the right. If you haven't joined yet all you have to do is follow the steps to join up on the Flickr page and I'll add you on.



This is the ATC I made for Ana. I called it Alice's Big Bag. I used an image from my Halloween in Wonderland papers from Graphic45, colored it with pencils, pastels and ink. Then added different cut outs to embellish.

I hope you enjoyed our first Artful Bag ATC swap. Next month we start again with our first theme, Playing With Paper. I'm already looking forward to making a new paper purse and seeing what lovely ideas you come up with. Thank you to everyone who joined the swap this month.
