A Beautiful ATC from Ati!

This lovely card arrived this afternoon from Norway! That was quick! I love the stitching, the color combination and the fabric with the fancy type font! Ati also included a little surprise gift – a gorgeous piece of fabric with gold accents and some pretty lace with heart designs. Thanks so much, Ati!

Wanna Trade, Anybody?

Here are my first three ATCs, ready to trade, if anyone is interested.

ATC Test

I wanted to make a quick test of my printed watercolor paper backings, so I zigzagged one to the back of a small stitchery from last year’s TAST.

And Baby Makes a Baker’s Dozen…

Just when we thought we were going to get through the summer, unscathed, Mary Frances (a possibly feral stray we’ve been feeding) gifted us with this bundle of joy, Briar. We think he is about two weeks old. DH picked him up, had a good look-see at his nether regions and proclaimed him a little boy. There goes more of our retirement savings...

A Finished Postcard...

A little while back, I blogged about the postcard backs I had printed on fabric using an inkjet printer. Here is an example of a finished back with zigzag stitched edges.

And here is the front (which some of you have seen before).

This is available in my Etsy shop (which I finally opened last night!).

Printed ATC Backs...

Been über busy, lately - with business stuff and family stuff… Anyway, I finally designed a backing for my ATCs. That was something else on my to-do list. Here is a page of backings ready to be cut out and zigzag stitched to fabric ATCs (or glued to card stock ATCs). The backings are ink jet printed on heavy watercolor paper. I like the idea that I can change the background color behind the logo to coordinate with the fronts of my cards. (I have been toying with the idea of customizing my blog for quite some time and originally designed the logo for that purpose.)
