Here goes then:
The beautiful, intricate card on the left is from my special pal, Sylvia. The patience she has to produce pergamano stuns me. Wait 'til I blog my Xmas cards! The gogeous Tilda with presents card on the right is from Sheila, who has amazed me with this because she usually produces grunge. This card makes her super talented in my eyes.
Many of you will recognise the art on the left as being created by the ever lovely Lindsay. She has created a beautiful alcohol inked background for her very own fairy stamped image. I think Lindsay has made the little turrets which are just super. This card is stunning and the photo just doesn't do it justice. Now, the card on the right is simply fabulous. I recognise some Tim Holtz there. The colours are vibrant but not over powering and I love every inch. To be honest, this is the most lovely card that my friend Sonia has sent me, and that includes her gorgeous ATCs.
These are a couple of my little surprises. The ATC on the left was made for me by Heather. I have to admit, it brought a tear to my eye. The friendship statement made my heart sing. The stunning little ornament on the right is another She creation. It's not going on my Xmas tree though, it's going to hang in my workroom so that I can always see it.
As well as all the above, I received several emails wishing me a happy birthday. Thank you so very much for all your good wishes.
