And here's the Christmas ATC I made for my partner...

The theme of this ATC trade was: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. When I first thought about the theme, the ghost of Christmas Present came to mind - the one with the little starved children hiding behind his robe. Here's what I came up with for my swap partner, Donna.  I used card stock, faux fur, fabric roping and glitter to give it a lot of texture. It was great fun to make.

Wonderful surprise in my mailbox!

 I was thrilled to open the ATC from my December partner, Donna Reinhar in the ATC Trade at blissangels.blogspot.com.  Thanks so much Donna, it is amazing! The theme of the swap was A Christmas Carol by Dickens and Donna chose to highlight Tiny Tim. She wrapped the ATC in a clever way, using a Simplicity pattern. And she included a postcard from 1913 in the envelope! It was a true delight to receive this in the mail.  And thanks also to Wendy for hosting this swap.
