Today we went for a lovely walk even though the weather looked a little dodgy, but while we were out the sun came out. We went a slightly different route round the Forge Dam area, but it turned out not to be very pushchair friendly so was a bit tricky...I don't think we will be doing that walk again in a hurry. I have also organised some ATCs for swaps that I have been involved in, putting pre-prepared ones in envelopes ready to post tomorrow. I also wrote some of the cards I have recently made so that I could post them as well. The morning was also a washing, cleaning type of morning so all in all it has been a busy couple of days.
On the crafting front I have made one ATC, which is part of a 'train of thought' swap that is on-going on the CMPC forum. This swap is basically like a crafting Chinese Whispers. I was sent the card above by Barbara Williams entitled 'You can fly' and I had to take inspiration from that ATC to make another to send on to the next person in the line. For example I could have used fly, birds, the blue theme etc.
I got the inspiration for my card entitled 'AirMail' from the Par Avion on Barb's card. From this I then used various papers from K&Co that were to do with Air Mail and then added the butterflys. I nearly called it Butterfly post. The little butterfly is cut out from a K&Co paper and the other butterfly and the edge of the card is gold embossed. I hope Kerry likes it and I look forward to seeing what she comes up with in response.
I also received a lovely ATC from Linda Brunton. This is so different and unique that when I saw it I just had to swap with her. She is a new member of the forum and I am really liking the stuff she is producing. I look forward to swapping with her again.
