It was too cold to do anything this Sunday but stay in my warm cozy jammy type clothes and do art! I have several swap items I needed to make, so I did the two most pressing ones, plus an ATC.

 This is my "Under the Sea" Gothic Arch I made for my AFTCM Yahoo group. Sometimes i make things I don't want to give away, and this is one of them! I would love to keep it! The mermaid, the seahorse, and 2 of the shells on the left are popped up. The arch is free standing, made from a chipboard book I got at Michael's in the summer. The 2 sides fold in a bit, but this has been scanned flat. Maybe I'll use it on a journal page!

I also needed to make a card for my Stampscapes II Yahoo group, the theme was "Anything Goes" so I decided to use my new horse stamps (also from Michael's).

 This one is going all the way to the Netherlands! I went to a Hero Arts sale on Saturday and bought a set of word stamps and I used 2 of them on this card. One is on the inside, under a stamped image of a horse's head. If you recognize the stamp of the trees in the background, you will know that I took out the water! How to be versatile with your stamps!

That's it for this week! I'm hoping to get some time to work on my journal from my Strathmore class, but I seem to have such small windows of time! I need to start working on my envelopes (15 of them I think!) for an envelope swap at my Byhand Yahoo Group, and I have 3 sets of ATCs to do as well.

Have a great week!
