each card a unique treasure...(Click images to enlarge...)
From Lolo...a special surprise...a twilight cactus ATC...
(We are all thinking of you these busy, exciting, and bittersweet days!)

From Marjee in Montana...a spectacular fossil triptych...
I feel we share a
kindred spirit for things of the past...I love how our paths have crossed.

From Francis in the Netherlands...Two beautiful collaged cards
and samples of paper with Dutch writing to collage or make a
more amazing treasures from...love these papers!
From Ranie...A masterful California zentangle artist...
I literally drool over her spectacular and intricate designs...
can't wait for more!
From Marva in Colorado...another zentangle...complete with an
amazing three dimensional feel to it...
The card is of a really cool painting of hers.
From Fadwa in Dubai..an exchange of a different type...
She had enjoyed several cards of mine and offered me
one of her gorgeous beaded anklets in exchange...OOOh MY!
(Need I tell you its even more spectacular in person!!!???)
And finally from sweet Soulbrush
a U.K. gal you just cannot keep down...a wonderful collaged ATC,
three little "inchies"...
(and, YES, I refuse to start making those!!! LOL :)
and...
a spectacularly vibrant and energetic
tea towel from South Africa a lucky draw win from Soulbrush's blog!!!
What a treasure trove of goodies dropped
at my door this week!
These trade are sooo much fun!
Thank you, each and every one of you...
a thousand times over.

and not giving it."

Each one is more beautiful than the next! And so universal! Here is the freaky part, I recognize that zentangle from ATCs For All in our zentangle group. The best part is, I wanted to trade for it and it was gone. Now I know where it went!! Lucky Margaret in this small world of ours!!
