Altered Jigsaw Puzzle Piece at 2cre8art

I found a really neat blog that has great detailed step-by-step instructions for each of their monthly challenges. This really helps me a lot when I'm trying something new!! Anyway, at the beginning of the month they post the tutorial in a pdf format (great for downloading and saving). For the month of March the challenge was to create an altered jigsaw puzzle piece. This was my first attempt at it and I didn't quite know where it would take me but once I got the stamping done I was quite pleased with the results. If you would like some great information or to participate in their challenges, check out their blog 2cre8art. Thanks for stopping by my nest!

ATC from Susan of a Brokn Heart Art Blog

While blog hopping last year I came across a very funny and talented gal named Susan at Brokn Heart Art whose blog is full humor and info on how she creates her wonderful art. While recently commenting about some ATC's she had made, she offered to send me one! Imagine my surprise when she so generously offered to send me one of these gorgeous ATC's. Not only did she send me one of her ATC's but she also included a hand-written note thanking me for my comments on her blog and she included several cool goodies in the package as well! Please stop by and read Susan's blog and tell her Robin sent you.

ATC for SDA Swap and Theme Thursday Challenge

This is an ATC that I did for a monthly swap with a group of gals from Stampin'D'Amour and for the Theme Thursday challenge which was to use eggs, nests or birds. The background is old sheet music that was distressed with gesso and faded jeans distress ink. The image is courtesy of My Little Raggedy Blessings Blog and the quote is from Emily Dickinson.
