UFO Christmas ATC Exchange

My UFO (Unfinished Objects) craft group met last Saturday for our Christmas breakfast and ATC exchange.

A few members didn’t make it do to scheduling conflicts, but what fun cards I received.

I made a two-photo collage of Margie’s card so you can see the front and back.

Here is the card I gave each of our members which I tucked into a little gift bag with some other goodies. Each card element has special meaning to me—all equating to love:
  • The card I made to represent my love for all things mermaid.
  • A sand dollar from my collection of those my mother and I gathered over the years from our home beach in N.C.
  • A bit of sand from the beach in Destin, FL which my husband and I collected on the day of our wedding and I keep in a sealed plastic tub.
  • A tiny sea shell I call a unicorn’s horn which means good luck. My husband and I found a bunch of these on a beach in Mexico on our first anniversary.

Your UFO group sounds like so much fun! Loved reading about all the thoughtful, sweet elements that went into your card and, enjoyed seeing cards from other group members.

Blessings,

What a very special gift you gave June. I'm sure it is much appreciated.

I love the shell ornament that you made of glass. It is very pretty.

Your card is lovely! Sand dollars aren't that easy to find on NC beaches any more! Yours must be very lucky. :)

You've made some wonderful ornaments. . . oh, my!
