"Cheer Me Up Swap" ATCs - my first ever!

After my last post, I think we all need a little something to cheer us up, and here it is -

This week I've sent off a set of the first Artist Trading Cards I've ever made. The Southern Cross Quilters are holding their annual retreat in Perth next month, and the "Cheer Me Up Swap" was organised especially for those of us not attending.

The guidelines asked for bright, cheerful ATCs to make us feel better, and I couldn't resist joining in. Apart from learning quite a bit about the process of creating these fibre ATCs, I'm looking forward to
the week of the retreat when I expect to receive four assorted ATCs from other Scquilters, something that I hope will put a smile on my face.

As convention dictates, the ATCs are 2 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches.

I've stitched the flowers from 1/4 inch hexagons, the sun's rays are gold bugle beads, and the butterflies are iridescent shapes.
