Thank you to all the lovely ladies who played along for the second Artful Bag Challenge ATC swap. I can't believe we just finished another round of our challenge themes. Just one more round to go.
This month I swapped cards with 2 lovely ladies and what an amazing swap it was.
These are the 2 cards I sent out.
I made a Bag Fairy for Karla and a Carpet Bag for Diane.
For each card I also made a bag to hold the card.
The ATC sits inside and the bag closes with mini magnets.
These are both made from scrapbook paper and I made up my own template.
I received both of my partners' cards today.
This package came from Diane of Dianie Mac Designs.
I already fell in love with the Halloween colors and Diane even treated me to the season's first bag of candy corn!
If you're not familiar with Diane's work you are in for a treat. She creates wonderfully whimsical clay art with a holiday theme, especially Halloween and Christmas.
Diane created this witch bag ATC just for me! What a treat! It's truly magical and amazing. I feel so honored to receive a piece of her art. I just love it.
Thank you so much Diane!
My other swap partner is Karla from Sketchbooks ATCs Mail Art. Karla and I were ATC swap partners last December. When I was a person short for my Artful Bag ATC swap and I didn't have a partner, both she and Diane offered to swap with me.
Karla's beautiful ATC came with all these wonderful goodies, including postcards and mini pieces of handmade art.
What's amazing about Karla's ATC is that it's actually a bag! And it opens up to reveal more treasures tucked inside. Each section is decorated with a unique design and held a little surprise!
Everything about it is feminine and sweet and makes me think of a lovely afternoon tea. Karla in fact tucked in a little bag of Perfect Peach tea inside which I know has very special meaning for her.
Thank you so much for creating this just for me Karla.
I feel so lucky to receive 2 very special bags from 2 lovely ladies, both amazing artists. Thank you Diane and Karla for a wonderful swap.
Please feel free to link up your ATC bag post here so everyone can see your lovely creations. You're also welcome to add your photos to the Artful Bag Challenge Flickr page anytime.
I hope everyone enjoyed their swap. Thank you again for playing.
We'll be back next month for another Playing With Paper theme.
