A Christmas Themed ATC

Thank you so much to everyone who has welcomed me back to blogging!  I had forgotten what a thrill it was to "connect" and to read those lovely comments.  Next on my list is to catch up with some blog reading!

And to make sure that I don't fall off the cart with my new found blogging intentions, I thought I would share a Christmas themed ATC that I recently made for a one-on-one trade with my long term trading partner Anne  Lugherini over there in beautiful France.  The card is made with fabric paper (a la Beryl Taylor with a bit of adaptation) - using a stamped image on tissue paper, watercolour paints and lightweight fabric. 

Yesterday's polymer clay "tile" making session was a success so today I think I may just make some more - a very soothing activity!  But I also want to play with my "Creative Versa-Tool" ..(so thrilled that The Thread Studio ended up stocking these with the Australian voltage as I have been wanting one ever since buying - and loving - Rebekah Meier's book "Fabric Art Collage"). 

So many choices - it certainly isn't hard to practice abundance thinking.

Nice to see you back in blogland although I must admit I don't do so much of it these days.
Happy new year to you .

Hi Deb and welcome back! It's great to see all of your creative goodies again :)
BTW, I was on the Red Cat yesterday heading up Hay St towards West Perth and I swear I saw you on the sidewalk! If it wasn't you then it would have to be your double. It was about 8am-ish.
Loved your beach photos, we too are loving being near the ocean again (we are about 5mins from Whitfords beach). Not that we always get time to go there, but I love to just walk along there by myself some mornings :)
Oh and welcome back to the land of blogging!
