So I am involved in another swap with Jean P on the cricut Message board. I have really cut back on the amount of swaps I'm in.But its so hard to resist swapping with this wonderful group of ladies . We really have a great group of talented swappers and I love these little works of Art or Artist trading Cards . Its like little treasures from friends.
This ATC swap was an abc swap make atc's with letters of the alphabet I had B, J, M, W 2 letters in 2 groups.
 We needed to be creative with our letters not the everyday A for Apple etc etc
So My B is" Bee Happy" the little Bee's have B's for wings.
Beehive and Bee's are cut with the Pooh and friends Cricut cartridge
J is for Japan I used my new pagoda Cartridge for the background mesh Lots of little bits to poke out once cut LOL.Then stamped and cut out my Japanese Lady
I had to made 13 of each of these cards which I did. But as I was packing them up to mail for some unknown reason I only had 12 one was lost in my crazy mess of a table. I even tidied up and still couldn't find it.
I thought thats ok I will send in 12 as the 13th one was for me anyway. So I pack up  my others then go to bed for the night leaving my Japan ones still on the table, So  I come down in the morning and My glue bottle had leaked  all over one of my Japan cards. So I am now down to 11 arrgh..So I create another but didn't have any more of the trim I was using so one will have different trim. Seriously I am usually not that careless . I tell you my life is crazy right now!

 M is for Magnolia I used the 3D decoupage technique on this card. where you have layers of the same image popped up with pop-up adhesive pads . I fell in love with this technique in England. I love the effect it has.

This is my W card for Wishing well I used different Glittered card stock for the letters and background the well was cut with the Happily Ever After Cricut cartridge It's one of the extras with snow white. So even if you never use the princesses on this cartridge there are so many extras It's a great cartridge.


  1. Marie-They all look so great!! I love the Japan don't see too many oriental things so I love it!!!

  2. These are great! My favorite is the wishing well. I love Happily Ever After, it really is a useful cartridge.

  3. Great use of your Cricut machine, Marie. I love these and wow, you made so many - that's a feat in itself; they are all very lovely!
