to be beside the seaside...... tral la la.
That's this months theme for Heather's ATC swap.
Considering I live by the seaside and am Blackpool born and bred, this should be an easy one for me, but no! I am again pulling my hair out to make 3 cards suitable to enter because the others who join in make the most amazing pieces and I really don't want them to receive rubbish from me. I can hear David shouting at me - be positive. I am trying to be realistic and here is the reason why.
These are 2 ATCs I received recently from 2 of my swapping buddies. The old lady is a card from SHE, which had me in stitches, and the feet card is from SONIA who makes the most interesting, neat creations from bits from magazines, her garden and alsorts of scraps. She is very talented and just getting to grips with distress and alcohol inks and I wish I could encourage her to join in these swaps - are you reading this Sonia?
I think both of these would be admirable entries for this month's swap, so I am taking my lead from them.
