Artful Bag Challenge-ATC Swap

Oh my , what a fun swap. This is my first international swap. My swap partner is Selma from Finland. Her work is amazing. Please see for yourself.

It took a long time to reach me but it was worth the wait.

This is the ATC that I sent her. I call it "Vintage Shopping"

This beautiful ATC is the one she sent to me. I think this is so unique, with all the detail and extras. It makes me want the bag that this person is carring.

This is a nice one too. I love the artwork involved.
This is a bonus. I was very surprised to find this one.

Also, look at all the wonderful things in this wall hanging. Selma really puts a lot of detail in all of her work I now have an angel watching over me while doing my artwork. It is so very special of Selma to make all the goodies for me. Please go to her Blog and check out her work.

Thank you so very much Anna from Frosted Petunias for making this Artful bag challenge a success.
You bring out the creativity in us all.

Here she is, the first great sunset of Spring. I hope we have many more like it.

The weather is definitely changing for the better. It is still cool out but there are many more blue skies.
