Blissfull ATC Swap for Nov.2010

This wonderful ATC is from Missy.
I was snow bound and what a treat to 
find this waiting in my mailbox. It was
well worth the hike to the box.
She wood burned this and then 
used water color pencils.
I love it. Thanks Missy! 
We got to choose what we wanted to do
this month.So I chose my favorite flower
and bug!
On the back I attached a small envelope
with poppy seeds.
I did NOT include a
lady bug!

I used ribbon, copic markers, acrylics,
Enamel accents and Cosmo Cricket tiny type.
Oh yes and poppy seeds!

So love your poppy drawing and what a great idea putting the envelope of seeds on the back. Isn't that stunning the wood burning.

I haven't any idea what an ATC might be, but the results it encourages are beautiful!

Hi Sharon:
Both of the cards are lovely. I'm a big fan of poppies...and the idea for a wooden card was unique! Thanks for sharing them. I've already finished my December card, so I'm looking forward to finding out who my partner will be in the new month!
Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving, my friend.
Blessings,
Donna

Both ATCs are terrific. Poppies are beautiful and ladybugs are awesome, too. I think they are the only bugs I am not afraid of! Great job!
