4 x 4 Theme Friday: TREE and a Very Zetti Christmas To You and You and You






It was another busy night in artland....the theme from 11-16 for 4 x 4 Friday was "Tree," so here you have my "Tree." I got the idea from an article by Cherl Hussman in Somerset Studio magazine about "newsies." She uses newspaper or book pages with text to cut out basic shapes for card-making and collage. My tree is going with the red "package" to the Chubbyville All Originals December 4 x 4 page swap. The tree is for hostess and birthday girl Debbie Metti. Meanwhile the package is for the theme "Memories" and opens to reveal a 1962 Christmas scene and old color photo of someone who was then two years old.

The Zetti style ATCs, and you just have to appreciate Zetti style to even begin to understand these, are for a swap in Monroe, MI next week. I'm going to meet up with some ARTchix in person: Jade, Vonda and Coral at Crafts 2000 to do a Zetti Holiday ATC swap. These are two of the three cards I made. Looking forward to meeting these talented ladies in person!
