The theme this time around was Newspaper and Buttons, and we had to make three ATCs and two Postcards (although not enough people joined the ATC swap and I did get one of my own back). I am so impressed with the cards that I have been given, they are utterly beautiful, with so many textures squeezed into these little items. I almost feel I should have them framed.
The Mother is very jealous of Wendy's laces. Every member of the group has a style and you can often tell who has made what without looking at the name on the back. Wendy often incorporates lace into her work and The Mother pounces on them every time, exclaiming over the different varieties.
This card has some tiny little details that are difficult to catch on camera. It appears that the little sparkly bits trapped between the news print and organza are heat bonding beads- but I couldn't be sure. They look very pretty when the light catches on them though.
And Annie's card has a lovely piece of silk as the background, with tonal lace and buttons. It really makes the red heart pop out of the centre! Until next month!
