a Valentine atc and magazine cover

It's hard to believe it's almost Valentine's time--I'm getting a head start
this year with an atc for Altered Arts Magazine:

It's regular atc size, but opens as a greeting card--it reminds me of the tiny
Valentines we used to give each other when we were children.

Plus, the new issue of Altered Arts is out to subscribers--not sure if you can
get it otherwise yet, but here is the cover:

All those candle holders on the cover are mine, so that's pretty fun--
Thank you, Altered Arts!

(As many of you know, my father died about a week and a half before
Christmas, so I haven't been doing too much on the intraweb lately.
Been getting back into the swing of things, so I hope to be by to visit
with all my bloggy friends, and catch up with some posting, as well.)

See you soon!
:)

I'm so very sorry to hear about your father, Trisha - you're in my prayers. Bless you and your family.

Love the way you send Valentines cards over there. I worked with some American missionaries at a language school in France and still have those they gave to me - such treasures. Maybe I should begin it here... x
