More ATCs & Some News...

Just yesterday I received my beautiful ATC returns from a couple of swaps I took part in during the Christmas period hosted by Marie over at Said Simply... "Pecan Snowballs" is by Lara W, "Granma`s Punch" is by Leesa H, "Fruit Dip" (with the acrylic bauble) is by Marie S, followed by "Recipe For Christmas Joy" (made up in a concertina style) by Samantha N, then we have "Brandy Cream Sauce" (with its gorgeous envelope) by Jan-Marie, followed by my own 2 ATCs for "Meringue Baskets". I have to say I`m not much of a cook, but I loved the idea of this swap, & needless to say, I loved the ideas everyone has come up with... Thank you Ladies :)

I also took part in Marie`s Artilicious "Doodling Swap" & here`s a scan of those
little beauties...
The first one had no details on the back, but when I find out I will come back & edit the post, "Spread your Wings" is by Leesa H, "Twinkle" is by Samantha N, the third one, "City Sanctuary" is by Nicole F ( & mine was specially picked as I`m the only one who lives in the city LOL), the next two were also missing the details on the back (& I want to know if that boot is a stamp & who makes it !!!! So I shall find out whose ATCs they are (& give a little slap on the wrist LOL) & come back & share. **********The "Flower" ATC was made by Haley (Jan`s daughter), "Happy Halloween"was made by Jan, & the boot was hand-drawn with each ATC having different coloured tights, & "100% Artsy" was Marie`s creation...Beautiful work ladies, & thanks Marie for letting me know...*************
The last one in this swap is the one I made...I had never doodled on an ATC, but I like the way it turned out :)
As for my news, I`ve been kindly asked by Marie to contribute to her ATC blog "Artilicious"... Thank you so very much Marie, it`s a lovely compliment :) So as soon as I get organized enough, I`ll go & post over there. I already have some fun themes in stay tuned :) but in the meantime for this month, Marie has chosen a black, white & red colour scheme & the theme is romance, so if you`d like to join in this ATC swap, just head over to Artilicious & sign up... & tell her Vicky sent you ; ) As always, thank you for stopping by, & if you`re in Victoria today (where it`s 46.7 ºC) stay cool anyway you can...TT4N
