IT IS ALL ABOUT PAPER HERE AND WHAT YOU PUT ON IT! SMALL SKETCHBOOKS and ATC's ARE MY PASSION.

IN A PATRIOTIC MOOD!
I made this patriotic tag for my partner Tee in our monthly tag swap...it is flag day this month after all. Betsy is busy sewing on those stars!
This ATC is for a swap with MWS and had the theme STARS...I searched high and low for a wonderful patriotic Gibson girl and here she is. I stamped on a fireworks burst of stars all over with Brilliance Gold and Stickled her flowing gown with Stardust! The stars are from a garland and add the finishing touch! Long may she wave!!! GOD BLESS AMERIKA!
Over the many years that I have been creating paper art, my clubs have increased. I began with CCCC crazy for cats card club in the summer of 2002. SBMAC sketchbook mail art club followed in the summer of 2004. I have been the moderator of that club for over five years now. I also belong to TWISTED SISTERS ATC CLUB. Once I began blogging for my little cat Miss Peach, a whole new world opened up as the world suddenly came into my living room. My group AMCA brings ATC's from around the world into my collection. ART brushes away the dust of everyday life for me...to quote a good rubber stamp!In my spare time, I live in a tiny cozy cottage in the desert of Washington with my beloved Dennis and a garden full of cats. I am from Bavaria and even though I am happy here, I miss it very much.
