These are the cards I got in the Duck theme exchange that I hosted. If I could, I would have kept a dozen of the beautiful cards I got! This first one is from Valerie Walsh. I so love Val's house art! I feel like I'm getting away like a bandit with her wonderful work. This scan doesn't really do the piece justice. It's really lovely!
This next one is from my friend Zari who presently lives in Lebanon. "Duck's Hot Bubble Bath"... so cute and funny! My daughter's favorite of all the cards (except mine, but I think she's biased). Zari did another card with her Zappy character, front view and back view, that was also super cool! I forget who got it.
Last but not least is this lovely card from Mariana Musa! "Duck Kiss". The scan, unfortunately, misses the more subtle colors at work here. It really is quite stunning. Thanks, Mariana!

Zari sent me the cool ATC made from a Starbucks coffee sleeve. I'm supposed to cut it out myself but of course I won't - charming as all get-go, eh? This her "bukibukina" that goes along with her "bukibuki" that she sent to Jeff. Cute, ain't she? :)
Jeff Brame is hosting a Saturday Morning Cartoons art exchange. This is the Captain Caveman theme. I was lucky enough to get Jeff's ATCs! He did the first one on wood and threw in one he made on a Starbucks cup sleeve (after my dear friend Zari's cup sleeve art).

The absolutely fabulous Crystal Driedger sent me this wonderful card (ink and watercolor) in exchange for the bunny card. Crystal is an amazing artist - I am so in love with her art. Her style seems so effortless and graceful and her subjects are so lithe and creative. I so love her ladies as well.
Brian Gubicza sent me TWO cards in exchange for one I sent him! I owe that guy. He gave me tough choice and I was torn between these two cards but settled on the anime girl sailor scout. But here he's sent me both! It never ceases to amaze me just how nice these artists are. I love these cards! Brian rocks!
An awesome postcard from a great artist and person, Gina Euginia! This is in exchange for the panda I sent her. It's me! I'm a pirate! And I have a pig for a first mate. Looks like I'm taking a tour of Indonesia, starting from Java. Meet me in Bali, okay?
