ATC's and WOYWW #158

That's alot of initials in my post title!  My workspace is covered with the fantastic ATC's that have been arriving at my house over the last week.  They are all so different, and such creative little works of art.  The first is from Susan-Killam Creative.  She used alcohol inks and black ink to stamp an image of the Moulin Rouge, and the colors are subtle and beautiful.  Then a lovely one from Mel over at The Yorkshire Fox arrived.  It has a beautiful Tim Holtz flower on it, and I love the blue and tan together with all the texture of the corregated paper and twine. 

 Yesterday two more came!  I now have my own Doodly Bird from Lynn Holland at  He's singing me a tune, so cute!  I've been admiring these little creatures since I started WOYWWing.  Lynn became my 50th follower, and I was especially happy about that!  Thanks, Lynn.

My last one is from Lyn over at Spyder's Corner, and she added so many interesting bits and pieces to hers.  Check out the print on the bits of text, so clever.  I reminds me of the I Spy books my son loved to look at when he was little,  there are so many things to see.  If you are wondering why I am getting all these great cards in the mail, it was because it was the 3rd anniversary of The Stamping Ground, the place where we all show our creative spaces to the world, and to celebrate, Julia organized an ATC swap.  It was so much fun, thanks, Julia, and thanks Mel, Lynn, Lyn and Susan!
So glad you stopped by, and I would love to read your comments!

  4. I am so enjoying seeing all the different ATCs on folks' desks. I just love the one on corrugated cardboard. That is a clever idea. And the one with all the bits and pieces, you could look at that one for a long time and not see it all. Your own doodly bird! How cool. The Moulin Rouge one is very artsy and looks shiny. Great stuff!

  5. That is a great clutch of ATCs there. Isn't Julia wonderful to organise this? I think we should stick with this idea for next year!
