Nina's ATC was presented in this lovely Spring green cone, edged in velvet and nestled in pink shred.
I love the layering of floral images on top of the "queen", as well as, the pretty lady herself.
I know... you're scratching your head, right? Donna cracks me up. So Donna shows up with a small brown shopping bag. She looks into it and says, "Oh no! I grabbed the wrong bag!" And then proceeds to pull out a drink, some chocolate in a baggie and a box of MucinexD. We are all sharp enough, that by this point we've caught on and are cracking up.
I got the "chocolate" and the "fool" inside was fantastic! Probably my favorite of Donna's so far.
April Showers Bring May Flowers... May Queen.
Cheryl's ATCs were prestented to us in these darling little, satin heart shaped baskets that she altered and filled with roses.
Cheryl always does the most amazing layering. And she even created her background with her own handwriting... a poem by Tennyson (I think she said). I also like how she incorporated a bit of May into the card as well. Next month we aren't doing ATCs. We're gonna shake things up a bit and try something different.
These are mine. This is what the front of each card looked like... my version of a garden gate. Behind each gate was a different fairy in a her garden and I presented them in a "garden", as well. These were inspired by Cicely Mary Barker's Fairyopolis.

As always, it was fun and created new challenges for me.
I'm off to putter in the garden before the rain comes again. And I wish all of you mamas a most beautiful day Sunday!
