Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Valentine's Day ATC Swap

 The ArtChix Valentine's Day Swap was hosted by Nikki Smith, the greatest hostest. The first ATC was made by B. Smith. She didn't put any of her contact information. I must say I love the buttons.
 This valentine was done with fabric and is quite amazing. I didn't have a name, but am able to thank here by email! Such a great job with the detail. There are beads around the heard with fabric, ribbon, and text!
 Nostalgia for sure. Lisa Robinson does an amazing job with her ATC's. I love this one because it transports me right back to childhood. This looks exactly like the Valentines that I used to send. The more animals and hearts, all the better.......
Such vibrant red, Camelichar did this one with two lovely ladies highlighting this gorgeous card in black.
 Nikki Smith always has some of the most original ideas. I love the pom pom's at the bottom. The ribbon, eiffle tower, and heart bead make this cupid so decorative.
......and lucky me another card all the way from Germany. Sabine Busch made this gorgeous card. It is just screams romantic. I love the image, words and the lovely heart!  Thanks to all those great artists who put those valentines in my mailbox. It was such a great swap. Even though valentine's day has past, XOXO
