Mother Earth ATC swap - part 4

Three more precious packages of gorgeous art works arrived today.

I think I am more excited than the kids,
we received 2 parcels from the parcel man
this morning and that had us
reaching for the globe to find the United Kingdom.

Mary Larner's cards

are all so soft and pretty,

just beautiful.

Mary used vintage quotes and images, inks, sizzix die cuts, and glossy accents.

The next package was from Lorraine Rigby

Her cards are so atmospheric and poignant

Deeply moving and thought provoking cards,
Amazing little shrines,
Lorraine has used Celtic knot work and cut out metal crowns.

The boys were just settling back down to our home school routine and it was Geography, and we just happened to be studying Canada today when the posties bike rattled to a stop at our mail box and they were both out the door in a flash to see what else had come in the mail. You can imagine their delight and excitement when one of the envelopes was another set of ATCs and this time from Canada!

Darcy Nalder
your gorgeous cards
could not have arrived with better timing,
even if we had tried to plan it, lol.

Darcy's cards are just gorgeous,
they all have beautiful colours and
have had so much thought and care lavished on them.

The last one is very special to my 8yo son,
as he was wanting to know what Canada looked like,
and now is certain it is where Mother Earth sleeps <3
so he is hoping we can keep that one.


  1. I am so pleased they arrived ,and on the same day as Lorraine ,how strange. I have sent the missing one and you should get it within a few days.

  2. Oh wow! What a feast for the eyes everyone's cards are!! You really couldn't have a better school lesson about Canada with snail mail arriving from there - incredible timing:-)xoxo

  3. Hi Louise! So many gorgeous cards, so much creativity, I really couldn't decide which one I like best. I love them all! :)
