Welcome everyone to the most exciting blog hop in
blogland hosted by our fabulous Julia, you can find
the hop here
Grab a cuppa and enjoy looking at desk of
artist from around the world enjoy..

I'm sorry to say I missed the swap , not next year though.
Its all about ATCs this week, I had a lot of decks of cards
different shapes, 3 set so Chinese one is called Mhing, which
I think are like the Mahjong's game. The little pictures were in
with my cards, I used to use these on my atcs, but not anymore.
If you have been visiting me, I have been playing with inks
and water colours and had a lot in my stash. I thought I could
use these on my ATCs
 I cut them to fit and then punched out some so I could
show some of the beautiful things on the cards.
I have a few more not shown here yet.
I have shown below 20 of them at the beginning of
the process of making them. I will post the stages everyday
this week till they are all done.. 

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful creative day..
