Hi Dear Blogging Buddies!!!

I entered another ATC for the second Blissful ATC Swap.
This time my swap buddy was Wendy.
Our swaps theme this time was "Orange"....Ughhh I thought...I really
really don't like Orange!! I almost gave up and thought I would not
be in the swap at all when I thought well "what" in the color of Orange do I like?
The only thing I really like that is orange are Pumpkins....OR...the Japanese Koi Fish!!  I looked through my stash of stuff and found a picture of some Koi and then painted this litte fellow. I had painted the pond first  and then painted the cute little Koi on a seperate piece of paper, I then glued the little guy down on top of the water....and so there ya go!!
I think he came out sooo cute!!

Anyone want to name him???

Ok folks LISTEN up!!

My first "GIVEAWAY" is happening very very soon!!
So watch out and stay tuned....don't leave town or if you
do at least take your lap top with you.....just kidding!!! ;)

Love to All and to All a Great Day!!!



  1. This turned out great, Susan! I love it. I love orange anyway and those Koi fish are so pretty, how could you go wrong? You didn't, you went very right with this one, good job! I will be watching for your giveaway.

  2. Hi Susan:
    It's beautiful! I just finished mine and it will mail to my swap partner tomorrow. I sure hope she likes it! I'm sure we'll swap someday. I'm looking forward to it.

  3. He is gorgeous....maybe a book could give you a clue to his name like 'Memoirs of a Geisha' or call him Pumpkin like you mentioned.
    Thank you for visiting mexx
    Hugs Lynn xx

  4. He is just darling! What a great ATC.
    Hmmm, what to name him?
    How about Leroy the Koi? That's pretty awful isn't it? :-)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Love your ATC. I too struggled with "orange" but finally came up with a humerous one!
