Challenges and A Swap

Hi!  I can't believe I'm posting twice in one week!  I participated in a few challenges and an atc swap, so here goes!

Below is a Lunagirl Moonbeams challenge called "shoes."  I decided to use an old shoe ad from a Lunagirl collage sheet called Vintage Ads III.  I decided to make a card for this challenge.

Next is an ArtJoyStuff (Kimberly) atc swap.  The theme of June's atc swap was "My Own Style."  Below is what I created.

These are the lovely atc's that I received in return.  From counter clockwise:  Little Treasures by SylviaLiz - Lululiz in Lalaland and Jeanie Hatch (no blog).  

I'm also participating in ICAD (Index Card A Day), but not everyday.  I make these pretty, little pieces of art when inspiration strikes or when I have a few extra minutes to play.
