Time for a change

My fingers fell upon some paper scraps yesterday and these ATC's emerged. I have had a jar of texture past for years and now I am using it almost daily - funny how these things work out. Do you see the wonderful old typewriter key, aged and pitted as if the machine it belonged to was carted through one war at least? It demonstrates the advantages of having a chewing dog - several minutes in his mouth before I noticed and the teeth marks are a feature. (As I was typing this my Archer was dropped home from a play date - my beautiful neighbour suggested I keep an eye on him as he has eaten a pink lipstick ... do you hear my sighs in Tom Price? Melbourne?California? )

I wish I could remember where I got his watch face from I have been saving it to use, and it seemed to go with this pin (thanks Sally for the fabulous gold pins).

Fabulous ATC's Julie, I love the one with the type writer key and the metal thread thingy. I made my first real ATC's this week to swap with Gisele. I've only ever made the playing card ones before that we took to the retreat.

Hi Julie,
I was so excited when I read your comment on my blog! I tried to email you but for some reason, the email didn't go through. I double checked it and I think I put the right address. Could you email me at:
stillwaters at edge dot net and maybe we can communicate.

Julie - these ATCs are "to die for". I think they are just perfect - I love the depth of colour, the composition, everything actually!

He is grinning at me and beating himself silly with his tail isn't he ? Like he had done a Good Thing.
