I participated in Cyber Fyber’s World ATC day which was held on January 17th.  I sent 3 ATCs for the swap and received 3 in return.

There is this lovely water color Sleeper by David Yaghjian.

The second week of 2009 challenge for MAMMA was birds.  This is the card I created for that swap.  The quotation on the card is from Sadako Sasaki.  You can read more about her and her story here

The background is scrapbook paper with a thick layer of gesso to give it texture.  The bird image is from a thrifted birding book, the text is printed on vellum paper.  I added a few soft pink blossoms as a nod to Sadako and the Japanese gift of Cherry trees to the US. 

If you have never been to the tidal basin in DC when the Cherry trees are blooming in the spring you have missed out on quite a sight.

I also created a second ATC using the same quote that is available for trade if you are interested. 

 

 

Have you been in any great swaps lately?
