nice connections made at Art Opera

I have such nice memories of Art Opera last week, and fortunately I have lots of stuff to show for it.  These two items are for swaps, but I thought I would give you some of the back story.  For "spring" I met a couple of ladies (mother and daughter) in Traci Bautista's class.  They had these wonderful papers that had these fabulous (you know me)  bird drawings on them.  Come to find out they are from an old book (and site) that she printed on old book paper and hand colored.  I had to have them!  So thank you Leah!
This is a postcard.

The faux birthday card is for a skinny swap for #8.  These are some more items I got during Art Opera.  Ah, such nice memories.  For those of you reading this, please check out ArtOperanj.com.  It is run by Lisa Kettell and she did a fabulous job for her 1st time around and I can only imagine the next one will be ultra fabulous!  It is worth the trip - and Lisa says she will be doing lots of activities between now and next year. 

Go ahead, check it out, you know you want to!
