Frieda Oxenham - August ATCs: I am

Frieda's August ATCs have also arrived from Scotland (her postcards came the other day) - yay! The August ATC theme is "I am" . . . . . and Frieda has understood this idea perfectly. I love what she did with it. She has written all about her process making them,  here on her blog. You will want to check it out! Frieda signed up for 2 sets of three ATCs and also sent an extra one for me, so I have 7 to share with you.



I chose the one you see directly above, bottom left. The funny part was when I went to Frieda's blog to get the link for her post about how she made them, I see that this is the one she said she was gong to keep herself! Did she make 2 pretty much the same and I chose the same one she did??? OOPps! There was another ATC waay at the top of her post, the one I kept is one of 2 she enlarged ; ^  )  Even though we live far apart, we have a lot of coincidences and similarities, it is even funny sometimes . . . . Frieda said it would be interesting to see which ATC I chose for myself. I picked that particular one because even though Frieda is a young girl in that photo,  it really looks like her to me. I think it also reminds me of myself at that age. I just love these ATCs! I love all the color in the background, how Frieda used her handwriting, stamping, and she made paper cards not fabric -a challenge for her I think! Anyways, she has got me thinking about mine . . . 

There is space in this ATC swap if you are thinking of registering for it -- and it is not due until September 3rd, 2011.Full details are here -click! Thanks so much, Frieda!!

Oh I was laughing when I read this post, Lenna. You choose the card I thought you would do!! Such fun. Perhaps I have super natural powers but I think the truth is that we know each other very well after all these years.
