December 2008. The theme was "Use Something Up". That had been my New Year's resolution the year before and I had suggested it as a theme for our ATC's. I guess it wasn't a favorite, since it was scheduled last :-) .
Here was my colophon on the back of the card:
Backgrounds from paper I've been saving for a "rainy day". Collaged with materials left from past projects. Used up a spool of metallic machine embroidery thread--a brief hobby from 25 years ago. Lettering done with gel pen--several went into the trash before finding one that worked.
For this project, I ended up looking through many drawers and I found a lot of stuff I didn't know I had--very handy for upcoming projects!"
This is a great reminder for my upcoming exchanges--my craft room is full of things I need to use.
