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. ATC Trade

Wonderful surprise in my mailbox!

 I was thrilled to open the ATC from my December partner, Donna Reinhar in the ATC Trade at  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.
