blissfull atc swap #1

I participated in my first real ATC swap this month at Blissfull ATC Swap and today I received my first card. My swap partner is Angela from Sew Loquacious (love that name). Angela has a fabulous blog filled with lots of fun crafts and a great challenge called Rewind Week. The theme for this month's ATC is 'orange'. It also took me a while to come up with something and I couldn't decide whether to do one with the color orange or an actual orange fruit. You can see mine on Angela's blog and I'll post it here later after all the cards are in.

Here is the beautiful card Angela sent me. I love the fabric flower and how she sewed the outline of the petals. There is text from a lovely poem called 'What Is Pink?' printed on gold paper and the entire poem is also on the back of the card. It was so exciting to get my first ATC card and I can't wait for another one next month. Thank you so much Angela for a fun swap and a beautiful card.

Hi, I just love that ATC!'s gorgeous! I really love the detail and the total idea of how she made it. Very nice work1! I also belong to Blissfull ATC Swap and had gotten my very first ATC from Wendy. I was so excited! If you'd like to see the one I made for her and the one she sent me I have them posted on my blog. Hope your day is a wonderful one!

Who woulda thunk that everyone would come up with such beautiful cards with an orange theme????
I am just amazed and delighted to be swapping with all you talented ladies !


Angela said...

Thanks Anna for your great comments (and words of encouragement)! Orange was a hard theme and I actually thought of doing an actual orange, too!
Your ATC is just beautiful as is the card you sent it in. Thanks again.

Came over from Angela's, and wanted to tell you that I liked your card. The vintage photos and the postage stamps made me think of "keeping in touch with the past." That could be because I am trying (when threre is time) to work on family genealogy.
