Thankful Thursday - ABC ATCs etc

My Dear Readers, I guess you think I have fallen off the blogasphere but it is not so.  I have just been a busy bee this spring in the garden.  This being the day many of us give thanks for the items we have received from one another I must say that I have some lovely atcs to show you.

The first is from Soulbrush.  I just love her people. They have so much character and this one is not an exception. She reminds me of myself when I am trying to jog...if you get the picture.  Ha... It came in the sweet card with Snuffles on the front. Another great thing about Soul is that she is so generous with her little goodies that are usually enclosed with her cards.  Thanks so much Soul.


Next I want to thank Gina. She made a Puffin card for our ABC ATC exchange. She knows I love birds and the puffin is a truly special bird. 
Her puffin card came in a hand made card also by Gina, aka BT The Crafty Gardener. I don't know how she does it but the card is so special. It has little fishes on it like the puffin might eat.  Thank you so much Gina.
Then just today I received a wonderful ABC ATC from Lynn who is teaching us how to read Hebrew Letters.  This one is Pe the seventeenth letter in the Hebrew alphabet.  I am so glad she put which way is up as I have no idea how it was supposed to look.  All of her letters are so colorful.
The other card that was in with the Pe was a Personal Assistant card encouraging me to help someone in need. It is funny that you sent this today. It is Earth day and I was thinking about how the earth needs all of us to help it out.  Not to worry, I also help people. Thank you so much Lynn.
Thank you all for sharing your art and thank everyone for having patience with me and my obsession. After this weekend life should go back to a more normal pace.  I hope to be posting more regularly and doing more art.  Yayyy

hahaha! I'm laughing because I thought this was a post by Soulbrush because I saw Snuffles, but when I read that part about spending too much time in the garden I did a double-take! I thought, holy smokes, how can she teach all day and make a million atc's AND do gardening!
I can't even keep up with my ATC and postcard committments ;P

Anyway, I'm glad you're getting so much good mail. And I'm happy about the dirt under your fingernails. feels sooo good!

Lynn said...

Happy gardening...tis definitely the season to be in the dirt. My DH used to call me Mud Hen when gardening was my passion (before I found art!)

Glad you like the Pe.
And it's also okay if you find a personal assistant for yourself too! LOL

Dear Lisa,
Happy late Earth Day...every day is Earth day right?
Wonderful atcs! You are a lucky girl to have so many artists as friends.
It is cold today, high 52 and cloudy.... and too wet for me to do very much outside.
All the cool weather veggies are loving it!

You have so many goodies! They are all so pretty. I haven't had time to get involved in swaps like I used to. Maybe someday I will again. In the meantime, I love looking at yours.
