Artist Share!

(a gift from Debi)


Hello Everyone!
Happy Weekend....well, almost : )


Today I am sharing about two artist friends who have swapped with me recently.
I am so lucky to have been the recipient of this colorful and sweet Post Card Art from Linka K.



She has used Paperwimsy images for this "Spring Friends Swap" we had on the PW forum. I love the purples and greens that she used, as well as the sentiment. It is just such a sweet card!


I love that she made the back look just like an old post card!
Linda is a wonderful person and an amazing artist. Thank you so much Linda!


Below is the swap items I received from a Marie Antoinette Mail Art swap. Debi was my partner. A few posts ago I shared what I sent her. Here are the beautiful gifts inside the packing box. So pretty, I didn't want to open them!



But I did!
And inside was this gorgeous pink box (created from a larger size matchbox)!
The colors and textures of it are sublime
And it is filled with goodies!



Here are a few of the goodies that were inside this beautiful box.

I love the frozen Charlotte doll....and the lovely pearl necklace, the rhinestone necklace, the two pair of lovely earrings, the spools of lace so gorgeously decorated, the tiny bottle of beads, and many more items as well! Debi really spoiled me!




Below you can see more of the goodies. See the wooden handle with the curled wire ends? I didn't know what it was...it turns out it is a handle for carrying packages tied up with string. Isn't that fab! There are also wonderful vintage postcards and a lace doily. Can you see the little tea set? Yes, Debi sent me a miniature tea set!!! It is on Mrs. Rose's bed in the first photo of this post. Mrs. Rose is really going to enjoy this beautiful tea set!



Thank you so much Debi for your incredible work of art and your generous gorgeous gifts! You can visit Debi's beautiful blog and see her amazing work at Life In My Studio.


May you have a wonderfully creative weekend!
Hugs,
Terri

Wow, you really got some beautiful things :) :) :) I love all the Marie Antoinette stuff and the shades of blue and pink :) :) Everything was wrapped really well, and decorate beautifully (thinking spools of thread..I might do that to my thread :) The postcard is gorgeous and I LOVE how she made it look vintage ;) :) I LOVE vintage :) :) Happy Almost Weekend to you, too.

Oh my goodness that matchbox that Debi decorated is just over the top delicious. Having received gifts from Debi, as well as from you, think you were equally matched, my friend. You both put your heart into your creations and there is such sweetness in the presentation.
The PW post card was truly beautiful and so 'spot on' ..what a treasure.

Thank you for sharing all this beauty.

Big hugs
