Here's the ATC that I sent Janet. I stamped Starburst Lace in the corner and used Peeled Paint and Broken China to ink distress the background. I used the dove from Swirl Christmas because I wanted a bird in flight.
I added a few drops of Liquid Pearls and the sentiment is by Hero Arts, too.
It took FOREVER for my ATC to reach Janet! Did I mention that she lives in Mauritius? We were probably the "furthest apart ATC partners living on an island" in the swap! When I mailed the ATC, the postal clerk did a double take at the address and asked, "Where?" I said, "Mauritius. It's near Madagascar." And he said, "Ohhhhh......" and I'm sure he still didn't know!
Long story short, I received Janet's beautiful ATCs and she FINALLY received mine, a good 5 weeks later! Here they are:
ATCs created by Janet Ribet (swanlady21)
Aren't they gorgeous? I love how one depicts a sun, and the other, a moon. She also included some beautiful papers and die cuts. Thank you, Janet, and thanks for being so patient, too!
Despite the stress of wondering if my parcel got lost, it was a fun swap and I hope to participate in future swaps again. I just won't send them by surfboard anymore...
Hope you're having a safe and Happy Fourth of July holiday!
