What's on your workdesk? Wednesday #9

#WOYWW #stayfocused #createdaily #ATCswaps

Greetings Happy Creative People! 

Yes, it's Wednesday and it's that time again to share what's on my workdesk.  To be honest, I haven't really created anything since my last post (my hubby's on vaca and we've been having a lot of family time).  I do however have a lot of backed up swaps that need to get mailed. 
Most of my swaps are for ATCs (artist trading cards).  As I have mentioned in other posts, I am part of several art swap groups.  It is fun and quite addicting because receiving art in the mail is like having Christmas morning at my mailbox! I get super excited and feel so special.  I even do a little dance every time, and I don't care if my neighbors think I'm crazy. 
I would love to share exactly what I created with your but I don't want my swap partners to see the ATC prior to receiving them.  Since I like to be surprised to see my swap partner's take on the theme, I'm thinking they feel the same. 
So the following are photos of the cards at some point in the creation process:










I always have fun creating ATCs and just as much fun going though all my craft stuff so I can include extra goodies in the envelope I send. 
Here are some if the goodies I'm sending:









I hope the ladies that receive this like the ATC I made for them and enjoy the extras I added.

Thank you very much for visiting my page and hope to see you again soon!

~Blessings
Carmen

Summer time is some of the fastest moving time isn't it? I just never have enough time to do all the things I love doing in the summer... Your ATCs are sublime and I am getting closer to being able to join in regular swaps to because I want Christmas every day like you! Grin Scrapbooking Artist Lynne Mizera WOYWW #42

Fun activity going on . I am looking forward to getting the studio finished so I can play on a regular basis and get back into swaps/ ATCs. Those are my favorite swaps to do. Creative Blessings! Kelly #33
