For my ARTHaven swap partner, Judee, I wrapped this 4.5 oz Hershey's Chocolate bar with a sheet of my sage green handmade paper. I also used the Tim Holz supplies that my friend Angie gave me, the flourish mask and the peeled paint distress ink pad. Then I just wrapped it with a white fuzzy fiber and added the tag! I just love it! I am thinking of making up some of these for some of my co-workers for Christmas. It is just a neat little gift idea, don't you think?

My Yahoo Arthaven group is having a monthly swap that involves making an ATC for each card in a deck of playing cards. I am using an actual deck of cards and altering each card as we go. This is my Ace of Diamonds ATC. I was browsing through my paper stash and found the diamond paper in orange and black so I knew I just had to use it for this card! I found a matching sheet of paper that had the alphabet in different fonts so I found a couple of A's and glued them to the corners. I wanted some kind of sparkle because I just love things that sparkle! And because diamonds sparkle! LOL so I added the gold glitter paint in the middle. This is the result. :) I really like the different fonts of the A and I plan to use that method again.
