Abundance in ATC ART Rains Down On Me!

These three amazing ATCs came from Marianne. The top is "My Universe" and it's always a good thing to feel settled in ones universe. The orange background Cat is "C= cat" from our ABC ATC BLOG TRADE...watercolor and pen...and something (paint) gives it a shimmer of shine!) The third curled up cat she just threw in for me "because I know you love cats"...Thank you Marianne. I love them all. Lisa sent me "B is for blue bowl and her BIL Bruce who has a blue popcorn bowl with his name on it. Also from the ABC ATC Blog trade! Thanks Lisa...and I did not miss the B for Butterfly on your card either! ;~) Teri C. sent the "Turtle Planter" and it's simply amazing with all it's detail of drawn and painted design and the millions of little petals on the flowers. And Teri I do love the Zen daisy on the card too. I feel so well thought of by you. I wish you could touch and feel the fabric on these next two ATCs from Cathy/Cleavland Girlie. I'm not even sure what all materials she has used on this "Love" ATC. Maybe some Angelina fibers, maybe some wool roving under fibers...and precious small beads...all come together for a beautiful intricate ATC. The yellow flower ATC is also fabric and painted as well. Wow! Thank you Cathie!!! Kate sent "Life's A Beach!" which I asked for in trade; and she added the painted vase of roses. Too sweet. Thank you Kate! I love them both. And last but no where near least, Lolo sent me "Cool Cactus, Warm Sky" in her wonderful pastel paints and ink drawings. Double time as it's again reproduced on a card. I feel doubly blessed. Thanks Lolo. Such beauty!!! Two more packages arrived in my today's snail mail, but you will have to wait until tomorrow for viewing. There is just too much to put in with this bunch. It needs it's very own post! I am truly blessed to have all this beauty falling into my life on so many levels. Thank you one and all.
