"Thankful Thursday...(#2)..."

...Glorious snail mail arrivals...
These three cards above are from Chris in California...they are
so richly textured and blazing with color and life!
Chris has a magical touch with stamping and layering.
I wish you could see and feel them in person...luscious!!!
Then came this delightful surprise from Patty in Alaska...
beautiful notecards inspired by her nature-filled local surroundings...
Patty's blog is fun to read...
it makes me feel like an "armchair outdoor adventurer"!
Then lastly an arrival from Babs in Oklahoma...her
"Lady with the red hat and veil."
Boy! Did this bring back the memories
of going hat shopping with my mom...who had several veiled hats
that I thought were so cool!

What a treasure trove from around the country!
I spent a good part of the day today
getting my long overdue trades ready to be sent out in the post.
Several more to finish up tomorrow...
and then they will all fly free to their new destinations
around the world.
Don't give up on me...They are definitely coming!

What beautiful treasures came in your mail! I knew the first ones were from Chris at Prism Trail the minute I saw them.

These are really amazing, aren't they??? It is so intersting to see what each individual comes up with!!! I finally am back online with my wireless (it was a BIG job)...but want to say thanaks for the Lovely art you sent my way while I was gone! It is so beautiful, Margaret and I really appreciate it. I hope to get into a sort of semi-productive mode with atcs still recovereing for a week long jet lag, and now geting ready for the kids to come home in just 6 more weeks! You are the best...hope to post what you sent me by the weekend. God bless!
xoxo- Julie

Wonderfully creative folks you are trading with, Margaret Ann! I fell in love with the raven one immediately - but all are so beautiful that it would be a fickle love and I'd skip from one favorite to another over time :) I now actually have some little art cards (although they look very childish compared to these works of art) which I may be able to trade you someday soon.

These Thankful Thursdays are reminding me of show and tell days in school! I love them!

Wonderful cards Peg. I love the diversity ;)

My Uncle is keeping me so busy, I have to post my TT next week ;)
