A.T.C. Swap

Do you remember back in June 
when I told you about the A.T.C. challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog? Well Kirsty also arranged for those who wanted, to join in a swap. This sounded like something I would want to try... so I did! My swap partner was Deb Hickman at A World of Imagination. She is one of those talented ladies that can create a gorgeous card using paper, a rubber stamp and an ink pad... something I haven't a clue about. I am amazed by how she does that! Be sure to check out her blog for some inspiration.
So today the Penmaker came walking 
into the house with a package and announces "It's here". I knew what he meant as we have both been watching the mail for it's arrival. So exciting getting a package from the UK.

I ohhhed and ahhhed over every item as
I unwrapped the tissue. Just look at all this loveliness!

One of Deb's fabulous cards...
this lace is unbelievable... so sheer and delicate... and cream colored roses... oh delight!

My camera didn't pick up the colors quite right...
these are the most beautiful buttons. I've never had any in this shade before. And check out the huge roll of sheet music... ah, I LOVE IT!

Here is Deb's beautiful A.T.C.
It has this tiny, little dress form on it... have you ever seen anything so adorable!

Can't wait to create something using
these pins and under them is pattern paper! I've been wanting pattern paper for the longest time!!!
Thank you so very much, Deb, for all these goodies. What a joy to receive them! This was such a treat!
And thank you to Kirsty and the ladies at CCCB for always coming up with new and exciting challenges for us to try!
