Mandala Swaps Arrived!

I recently participated in an inspiring artist's swap with the theme of the mandala. We all made three Artist Trading Cards called ACT's which measure 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". I made mine, shown above, out of torn handmade papers sewn onto playing cards and sent them to the coordinator of the swap, Michelle of 30 Minute Mandalas a couple of weeks ago.

Yesterday I opened an envelope and was delighted to find the three ACT's pictured above in exchange for the ones I sent! I'm not sure exactly how many artists participated but it was at least twenty.
From left to right:

"The Writer's Mandala" comes from Susan Smith at Avalon Healing Arts

The second one just happens to have come from a new friend Marsha Goldblatt who I met online and then in real person a couple of weeks ago! Visit Marsha's store for vintage arts.

The third one is called Creativity Mandala and is from Michelle herself!

I love all three of them!

The theme of the next swap from Michelle is called "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" and requires using materials from your kitchen. My three are just about finished..........When they're done I'll scan and post them before they fly off into the swap world.

Hi Victoria, glad you liked the cards. I think it was a great first swap and I'm really looking forward to the next one!

You must be so happy with the ACT's you received. They are all wonderful.

Hey Victoria, my sincere apologies for not getting back to you with my address. I have been feeling under the weather and busier with my son home. I am very grateful and do WANT IT! Please send me your email to me and I will send you my address. Love the mandala ATCs!

Victoria I received your mandala ATC and just love it.
This was the first exchange I have ever done. I loved all the cards I received.
Thanks again!
