What fun! My copy of the new Stamper's Sampler showed up in my mailbox today and alas, I had 3 cards in the magazine. That's a record for me and I'm very excited. All three are for the challenge "Frightful and Delightful" which is Halloween-themed cards, so I'll post them on my Halloween Blog.
I'd like to congratulate my friends Lynn Stevens and Louise Granlund for making the magazine as well! Lynn's amazing house is on the cover! Congrats ladies!
This gorgeous ATC book was created by my dear friends Julia Ziemann and Alice Hyde. They surprised me with this as a thank you present for hosting a yearly ATC swap last year. I was SO thrilled by this amazing book....each page is a different month in French and featuring lovely vintage ladies. They are ATCs that can be removed from the book (of course, I never will.) Please click on each picture so as not to miss any details. I was deeply touched by their thoughtfulness and will treasure this book always.
To be considered for membership, you must submit samples of your work to the membership committee for review. Examples would be a link to your art blog, Flickr album or Pinterest art board. Are you an expert ATC artist looking to trade high quality vintage-inspired ATCs? This group may be for you.
