Cloth photo album; "R" ATC on Grateful Thursday

I have started a new project. These photos and words are ironed onto muslin dyed in coffee using TAP Transfer Artist Paper ( Lesley Riley fabric.ologie). The album is for my 16 yr old grand daughter who is graduating from high school and leaving for college in August! Lots more pages to go...
Gina, in Ireland, sent me this "R" for Ribbons ATC from our ABC ATC Challenge! Now that is a mouthful. I love how personal this group gifts us with the artist trading cards made especially with our interests in mind. Of course I love the ribbons, and to respond to one members query, yes, I will leave the ribbons ON this card! ;-)
Thank you Gina, I love your card and notes and all the little extras!
I think it's time to toss my hat in the ring and thank you all once again
for voting for my Nest Building swan quilt.
The beautiful red and white quilt I mentioned yesterday has surpassed
everyone to top of the list currently in 1st place with 111 votes!
(I still have 64 votes and doubt I know 47 ++ more people to ask to vote for mine)
She apparently is a teacher as I read in her comments from people asking if they were now
going to get an A for voting for her! Who said: "It's all in who you know!!!"
That said, let me again say thank you and tell you how very grateful I am for your
support and votes. I appreciate you and them so very much.
Hugs to you all. _______________________
