All stuck up

At last I managed to have a play with the glue gun and embossing powder and got myself all stuck up in the process. This is a follow up from our Serendipity playday last month we made a pact that we would use the technique to make each other an atc. These are my contributions. The two blue ones are on a background of Abacca tissue the other three are quilted backgrounds (all recycled backgrounds). The postman also brought me this beautiful felted landscape from Maggie Harris. I love the hand embroidered flowers in the bottom corner, lovely touch I though they also give a sense of perspective.
The U is umbrella that are not only used in the rain is from Barb Engvalls, love the fabric and could just see myself sitting under it on the beach.
This third card is actually a pale green linen and the twin needled grid was done by Jennifer Cormack. Jennifer has put rhinestones in some of the grid boxes its a lovely neat card in a typical Jennifer style. Jennifer is part of the private swap group.
Finally but not least is this card from Candi Harris, Stitchinfingers Postcard group (see link on side bar). Candi's card is silk patchwork pieces in beautiful autumnal shades with hand embroidery and beads. Its a real stunner and looks even better in real life.

I seem to have spent all day chasing shadows and getting no where so I hope tomorrow I'll stop running round like a headless chicken and get down to some work. My CQ Journal Page for September ended up in the bin and I've restarted it. I then have to make a start on this month's and as if I don't have enough to do I need to make a start on my quilt for Kate North's ALQS challenge.
