Tag Challenge

I had a chance today to visit with some of my online friends and while I was doing a little blog hopping I came across this challenge on Louise's Kard Krazy blog. I love making tags...so quick and easy and useful too! The challenge for this week is to include a " trio of something" on a tag. I had just looked at this photo with its "trio" of sisters (courtesy of The Vintage Moth) and thought it would be perfect for this challenge. So, here's my tag. Be sure to stop by and see all the lovely art work on Louise's blog.

Salvage Studio Art Party

Don't you just LOVE fun mail? Look what arrived...a reminder about the Art Party in September held by Beth and Lisa at the Salvage Studio! There's still time (I think) to sign up and join us. I love that sweet altered poker chip! I know it's just a small hint at all the wonderful goodies Beth and Lisa have in store for us...can't wait!

Red Lead Artful Holiday ATC Swap

The latest ATC swap on the Red Lead group is called Artful Holidays. You could choose from Christmas, Halloween, Spring/Easter or Valentine's Day...one or a combination...and make a set of ATC's to trade. Chris and Sharon are planning the first ever Red Lead ZINE and some of ATCs created for this swap with be featured in it. How fun is that?! And, if that's not enough...one lucky swapper will be chosen at random to win a $100 Red Lead gift certificate...woohoo! Here are my ATC's for the swap. I thought I was going to do a combination of holidays but once I got started I just got into the Christmas spirit and couldn't stop!

A Few ATCs

My poor blog has been so neglected lately! I think I have to attribute my lack of artistic energy to the weather...we've had some ridiculously hot temperatures this summer. Too hot to even create art! One of the few things I have been doing is making ATCs so I thought I'd add a few here. The first one was made for an online friend who turned 50. Sue (another online friend) decided she would surprise Renee and have everyone make an atc to celebrate the occasion...isn't that a fun thing to do? What a pal! The next two were created for swaps...one at Alpha Stamps and the other with my favorite Lunch Ladies. What have you been up to lately?
