On to art. For the ATCDivas, the theme this month was Band or Music. Whatever we do, has to be done 6 times.

For mine, I took an old song sheet cover, reduced the size to fit on an ATC, added music tape from Tim Holtz, distress inks, and bronze stickles on the sides. I have these 6 little picks of marching band musicians, each carrying a different instrument and each one will be attached as this one is, with wire, jump ring and red eyelets. I aged metal numbers (1-6) and each number will be attached to a card, such as this #2. Little black gems were added in two corners. Those little musicians are so cute - their arms even move. They must have been made to go on a cake!
For the Asia Series #7 on Swap-Bot, we are in India. Here is the ATC I designed for that:

I used an image of an old temple, bit of art on the side, a postagestamp and fabric flower with pearls in the center.
It's a beauitufl day here, and the birds are really enjoying the weather, it seems. The dogs look forward to going outside and romping. Yesterday at Wild Birds Unlimited, where we get our bird food, we met a very nice man from Turkey, who had 2 puppies in his car - a Westie and a Char Pei / Retriever blend. They were soooo adorable and that puppy blend was absolutely a heart stealer. You could tell this man loved his dogs and we stood there outside the cars and traded dog stories. And then we agreed on how much we like birds and this bird food store. It was an enjoyable experience!
