April ATC Trade

Here are the ATC's that I made for our monthly trade. I applied various yarns, thread balls and dryer sheets onto a sheet of stiff felt. I stitched everything down, then cut the sheet into trading cards. I added more embellishment, doodled with my permanent markers and stitched around the outside edge.

Arte y Pico Award

In the past few days, I received two different blogging awards. The first award came from Laurence in France. Her blog is written in French, but has a very cool translator. The second one came from Elis who is a fantastic mixed media artist in Canada. A huge thank you to both of you.
I would need to link to 15 blogs to meet the requirements for both blogs and I'm afraid I just don't have the time to do that. But I don't want to be a stick in the mud, so I'll follow the rules for the Arte y Pico award (that one only requires 5 links)!

Thanks so much to Elis Cooke for giving me the Arte y Pico award.
The following 5 rules are attached to this award:
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and that also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his/her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her/him the award itself.
4. The Award winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte Y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5. To show these rules.
The blogs I would like to award this honour to are:
