Birthday Postcards/ATC's/Lovely Doreen

I was so excited when I received Lynda's parcel, with the beautiful fabric book, that I completely forgot to post a pic of this beautifully textured postcard that was also enclosed. Thankyou Lynda!!

Take a look at this beauty! I love Kim's work - she is also one of my favourite textile artists. Kim's work is always stunning - I especially love her art quilts...... Thanks Kim!!
More ATC's. The first one is from Eva - it has Angelina fibres, dyed muslin and some beading. The one below is from a gorgeously textured piece of fabric that Val made, which I had drooled over on her blog. Well, it's even nicer in real life. Thanks Eva and Val!!!!
These ATC's are great!! Very different from my already growing collection, and will make a fantastic addition to my now growing paper ATC collection. The first one is from Marlies, and the one below is from her 12 y/o (I think) student, Eline. I really love them. Thank you!! One of my best cyberspace buddies is Doreen. She is a very talented and generous lady -more than willing to share her vast textile experience. Well, look what I received for my birthday. A beautiful handmade card......it is a gorgeous design which includes a great textured handmade piece as a focal point on the front. But, look at that luscious tassel!! It is gorgeous, with LOTS of yummy ribbons and fibres, a silk flower on the top, and a braided loop. Thankyou Doreen!xx
