Blissfull ATC Swap - December...

I had so many things going on recently that I neglected to post about the December Blissfull ATC Swap group! This month's theme was "A Christmas Carol".

I chose the image of Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim for mine. I used my favorite fabric, added tiny bells, a shiny star, red silk ribbon, a little holly and berries, and then finished it with Tiny Tim's famous quote: "God Bless Us, Everyone!"

I sent it off to my swap partner on the 15th, and hers arrived shortly after.
My swap partner was Melanie of Rabbit Hole Art. She created a great card! Melanie used the image of Charles Dickens at his writing desk. She added glitter trim, a shiny gem, holly and berry ribbon and word banners. It's another wonderful addition to my atc collection. Thank you, Melanie!

I really enjoy this group. Wendy has all of the themes for 2012 already listed in her sidebar. If you'd like to swap with other artists, just go to Wendy's site: Blissfull ATC Swap Group, where you can sign up to participate. The more, the merrier!
As we head into the weekend, I know many of you might be traveling. I just want to remind you that the next Memory Lane Monday is right after Christmas (December 26th). I hope you'll join in the party and link in on Monday. I'm going to write my post early and schedule it with the ability for all of you to link up.

If you're traveling, please be safe. Enjoy the holiday and the spirit of Christmas. I'll be adding posts throughout the weekend, so if you're home, I'll see you again! (Just between us: I'm posting our annual Christmas picture tomorrow!) There won't be any "dashing through the snow" here, but if you have snow where you are, then Merry White Christmas!
