Hi, there!  Welcome back to Traveling Down a Crafty Road!  I've been working on a bunch of ATC swaps and would like to share the only non-Christmas one that I've done.  Keep in mind that I've recently completed 4 swaps.  Three were Christmas or sort of Christmas themed and involved a grand total of 63 cards!  This one only required 12--one for each month and I was responsible for September.

I found the seed packet image on the internet (morning glories are the September flower) and I replaced the seed company name in MS PowerPoint.  I also accented the flower with a little Perfect Pearls painting technique.  The sapphire-like jewels are from Michael's Recollections brand.  Stampendous Royal Blue pigment ink finished off all the edges.

Now let me send you to fabulous places! 
Debby Lewis, Fiskateer of the Year for 2008, hostess of the 52 week long Dare Ya! challenges, owner of Debby's Dream Studio shop and a wonderful crafter is doing "12 Days of  Home for the Holidays" on her blog (link below).  The ever creative Debby has invited 12 guest designers to share their holiday traditions and creativity.  It's a fun time over at Debby's Dare and I encourage you to visit and maybe learn something new.  I've also signed up to participate in the Dare Ya! challenge for 2010 so you can look for my challenge layouts right here on my blog starting in January!  I would love to have your company in the challenges.  Find out more here:
