Well-Travelled ATCs

Unfortunately, I haven`t been in a very creative mood of late, I think it`s time to clean up my craft space again :) but I will share a card I made for Mum last week, something nice & cheery to start with LOL,, it says "happy Birthday" in Spanish, I just love that moose :)
But I did receive some wonderful art in my mailbox, so I`ll share them here. Firstly, the 2 beautiful ATC returns below are from Carole L (from my ATC-friends Yahoo group) I love her attention to detail, thank you Carole.

Next, you may remember THESE, & these are my returns. The swap was a competition hosted by CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS in the UK (thank you Jean & Malcolm for hosting) & my returns came all the way from the UK & 1 from Germany, so I was very excited to add these little beauties to my ATC collection :)
The first one is titled Pink Passion, & was made by Anne-Marie (UK), the second one is cleverly titled "Date By the Sea", & was made by ILONKA (Germany), next we have ROSIE`s "Play to Win" (UK) love those little dominoes, & while you`re visiting Rosie, have a look at her great CHALLENGE BLOG . Last, but by no means least, the little B&W beauty was made by Val W (UK) & is titled "Heart-felt". I know Anne-Marie received my "Old-Fashioned Girl" in her returns, but I don`t know where the other 3 went, though I`m sure they`ve gone to good homes :)
Next, my ATCs for my yahoo group, the first one was for the month of February & the theme was "Ocean" (I`ve used images from OXFORD IMPRESSIONS & DARKROOM DOOR) , the next one is for this month`s theme "Birds of a Feather" (using one of TIM HOLTZ stamps for the b`ground & a bird image from CATSLIFE PRESS) I opted to use one of my favourite quotes ATM, "Use the talents you possess, for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except for the best~Henry Van Dyke, it`s a great QUOTE for those days when you may question your art, or when you doubt your ability in any other endevour...or when you try to justify to yourself &/or to others the time spent doing what makes you happy :)
Now I`ll be off to try to clear up my messy craft table...Hope all is well in your part of the world, & don`t forget to check out my VERY FIRST post for ARTILICIOUS, thank you for visiting my blog, & please, feel free to leave a comment if you have the time...Have a good one :)

Wow, what a fabulous array of ATC's Vicky!

Thanks so much for the birthday card and goodies you sent me, I love the card! I sent you a personal email, but I'm not sure if you got it....I lost all my current email addresses when my 'putuer crashed, so I used the yahoo address from GM's group.
