Votes needed!! Calling All Followers and Friends Of Art of Mine!!!!

Hi All!!

As most of you know I have a real passion recently
for making ATC's aka "Artist Trading Cards".
Wendy and Debbie over at "Blissfull ATC Swap"
put together a Challenge to make a holder for
all of our lovely ATC's that we are accumulating.
We have now posted pictures of our ATC holders
and we All need votes from all of our Followers
and Friends out here in Blogland!!


I made my ATC Wall Hanging from a vintage
embroidered Linen T Towel. I sewed some very fine
white netting over the top and made a total of 21 pockets.
Along the sides I sewed some French satin
ribbon and some pretty cream and pink trim on the top.
Also I made 4 pretty little tabs on top with more
pink satin ribbon and attached the wall hanging
to the shabby white wire holder.
I thought the netting was great to use for the
pockets as it is very sheer to see through but
sturdy enough to hold the ATC's.

Then if you would like to vote for mine
then send an E-mail to Wendy and Debbie
at Blissfullatcswap@gmail.com
and leave your vote!!

Thank you Dear Friends so much!!!

Hugs,

September "Leaves" Blissfull ATC Swap and a Blissfull Challenge Vote

Hello My Dear Friends,


I posted the Beautiful ATC that
Carol Anne made for me and today
she has posted the one I made
for her...so now I will show
all of you the one I made for
Carol Anne.

I tried an experiment with
some skeleton leaves I
had and wool roving.
The leaves are pretty
fragile but I thought if
I "carefully" felted some
wool roving into them
that they might stand up
to the needle punching,
and they did! I also
added some Angelina
fibers to the wool,
each one with
a coordinating sparkle
of color to each leaf.

I used a gold leaf pen
to highlight around the
edges of the leaves as
well as the edges of
the card!
Added some beads
and viola!!! 

Please go visit
The Blissfull ATC site that you will find on my sidebar.
We are having an "ATC Holder Challenge".
We are all making one of a kind holders
for our wonderful ATC's,  the one with
the most votes wins the Challenge!!
If you like my ATC Holder please
put in a vote for mine!!! Thank you!!!

Love to all and Enjoy your Day!!!
