ATC exchange

Our small international swap group has changed this year, Guriana from Poland has left us but we were joined by Debbie from US.  This year we make a set of three ATCs for one person at a time and we need to make a holder for the ATCs.  Each time we have a theme selected by one person, everyone will select a theme once.  This month the theme was selected by Celeste and it was "Wings".  My partner this month was Margaret and below are my creations for her.

Birthday cards

I have been absent for a while and now trying to catch up.  Below are some birthday cards I created for family and friends.

This card was made for our 10 year old neighbour Hasti for her birthday. She visits us regularly to play with our dogs hence the card had to be with the dogs.  Hasti loved it.

My friend Celeste turned 50 this year.  Ga ye , Margaret and I made some ATC for her - 3 each, and the theme was 50 and blue.  I used some coloured texture paste to make the backgrounds which were also painted with watercolours.

The 9 ATCs which we made were packaged to this small holder which I decorated with some washi tape:

This card was made for Gaye:

My sister Beata also turned 50 this year and I made her this card with a vintage camera stamp from Papertrey Ink, the lower picture shows the flap with her photo pulled down.

And this one was again for Celeste:
