"Snakes" through 2013

MaryAnn Arnold organised a Chinese New Year - Year of the Snake swap.  I sent in 6.

All, except one below, were done in red packet style and a paper coin included in each of the red packet-ATC.  I love to think out of the box and create ATCs with a difference!
Received the swap back last week - from top left going clockwise: ATCs from MaryAnn, Belinda Shields, Jennifer Johnson, Marlone Ketterman, Anna Secrest and Cat Riley. Really hard to choose a favourite; thank you to all for a fun swap!  I'm already looking forwards to the next CNY swap!

For the Bowl of Hearts swap, 3 more fabric hearts came from Cathy Vigor (USA), Sonya Anderson (USA) and Jenny C Burns (UK).  Can't wait for the last one from Lorri to come to take a photo of all the hearts together!
I have not been doing art doll lately, just 1 to Maureen for the Jan swap.  He is Ravana, the 10-headed King from the epic Ramayana, cut from 3 postcards to make up for all the movable limbs. 

For our monthly ATC sessions in Bishan Library, we made some movable cards in the January session.  The object will move when the string is pulled.  However, it can only move in a straight line.  I did one (the left-most ATC with red background) using brad, so that it can move in a circular line. 

Traded another movable ATC with Rita (the blue and peach birds).  The quilled card 吉 is done by Mdm Au, "Love Songs" (the black birds) by M. Chong and the Valentine Day card on foam by a young Indian girl, Nachu.
