Oriental ATC swap and Christmas is on the way...

Its starting to feel a bit like Christmas around here.... These are a couple of my Klimt Christmas Angels that I am making for a few of my art girlfriends. Below a closer look for you... I will make an attachment so they can hang on the Christmas tree or wherever takes their fancy.
These are a couple of ATC's I made over the weekend for a swap with Jenxo and Debbi Baker. Our theme was oriental - I found it hard to get into these as I havent done ATC's for a while, but once I started I really enjoyed the process.

And below
are the gorgeous ATC's I received from the girls. The one on the left is from Jen and the right from Debbi, both very special.

I've also been playing around with my new crayons in my journal so will have some journal pages to share soon.
Meanwhile, thought I would share one of my favourite quote from Sark with you "Love Imperfectly". Such a simple quote, but implies so much.
Enjoy your week!

Look at those sweet angels. The receivers of these works of art are going to be so pleased.
And the cards are beautiful. Working that small must be hard!
Can't wait to see the journal pages.
