Whilst rummaging in my box of bits to build up a travel stash, I came across a half finished ATC from when my MixedMedia swapping group were working our way through the alphabet. I can't remember why I decided to make a different card and didn't finish this one but I thought it about time I did.
Purple was definitely the theme of the holiday. My next set of ATCs was based around the theme of purple. I love colour themed ATCs, although seem to follow a pattern of mini patchwork with embroidery- I guess that's just my style.
I also have my continuing 12 Days of Christmas ATC swap. I can't believe we are already on number 9!! This month was Dancing Ladies so I gave the girls some swirly skirts with sparkly beads.
And finally, we have a couple of Purple postcards! I didn't want these to be exactly the same as the ATCs, but had very little to work with from my limited holiday stash. The background is still a patchwork technique but I put more emphasis on embroidery stitches and really love the way the kantha stitches overlap each other with the different thread colours.
When we got back from holiday I had a lovely little envelope waiting for me on the mat. My return card for the Nine Dancing Ladies from the lovely Pat. Another lady with a groovy skirt!
