Autobiographical ATC

Autobiography 1 Autobiography 2

What do I want to say about me on an ATC? It is such a little space.

Meg wanted to be included and what Meg wants, Meg gets, so I suppose that says something about me. Her outline is a rubber stamp which has been printed with a clear embossing pad and then covered with antique gold embossing powder, baked over the toaster. She is then hand painted using watercolour. The border of the card is two different tapes that are just like correction tape but laying patterns instead of covering errors.

After reading one of Stephen King's short stories in which he used the term Butterfly Mind, The Poet said that the phrase described me to a tee. Butterflies have become my totem. My card is a handpainted interpretation of a butterfly.

To Robyn

It is very interesting.

The butterfly must be your totem.

My imagination extends.
The butterfly has a symbolical meaning also in Japan.

I do not know Stephen King 's short stories. What is the title?

Thank you.

The are both very nice, but the kitty card is my favorite. This one is just perfect!
