Artful Sisters

Today is a Red Lead (ter) day as I received in the mail the 3 swapped out ATCs from the Red Lead Vintage Artistry ATC swap along with some blank ATCs and Red Lead vintage images.  I immediately set to work creating this ATC with the goodies:
The ATC background paper and the vintage image are what I received today from Red Lead Paperworks Inc in St. Louis.  The ribbon is from Gecko Galz.  The beautiful Zva flower is from the Flying Unicorn on-line store. I glued the image under a Tim Holtz fragment and then trimmed it with gold scrap, also from Red Lead.  The ATC is edged with Adirondack Metallic Gold Paint Dabber.

I'm sending this ATC to my friend Shawn, also known as Micupoftea.  We work together on the Bella Creations design team.  Why did I make this for her?  Because I have some things to mail to her so I'm putting it in the same envelope with a chipboard teapot album  and a teapot stamp that I've never used.  And because I received in the mail from her today, this wonderful card which she made for me because I'm a grandma now!

Isn't this gorgeous?  I love the lace on the pram.  Here is a link to Micupoftea's blog: Poetry in a Pot of Tea.  Please visit to see her great art and wonderful collection of teacups!

And last but not least, the 3 beautiful ATCs I received from my Red Lead swap sisters, Robyn, Becky, and Dottee. Each one has so many wonderful details to admire!

A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure, a messenger of peace and love, a resting place for innocence on earth, a link between angels and men~

I am so thrilled for you that you are a new grandmother...what joy! Glad you liked the card~
Wow, I will own a piece of 2AMSCRAPPER art?
Thanks for a sweet blog post. :)
