I can't even imagine what people must be going through right now with the recent tornados across the South and Midwest, it's such devastation, my prayers go out to all who lost a loved one.

What a hot day it was today here in Southern California.  I spent the day in Anaheim and the temperature there rose to 90 degrees fahreinheit 32 degrees celsius.   For the middle of  this week the temperature is expected to drop to the freezing 50's......go figure!   That's the reason you will find heavy jackets in our closets as well as summer shorts and flip flops.  We just never get a chance to put away our summer clothes.

For today's post I want to share some Artist Trading Cards some very artistic friends made recently.  The theme was SteamPunk.  It's a mix of Victorian era/Futuristic/Science Fiction.  You can read more about SteamPunk here

There were quite a few ATC's but I'm only going to share six with you today.  They're all varied but the theme is the same for all of them, "SteamPunk".

This was created by Cheryl Shoats.  I love the softness of the corset against the rough metallic gears
This next one is by Virginia Balles Binion, I love the bird and the tall hat

The next one is by Kim, again, I love the bird in the cage
Florentina Rivas, love her use of zippers 

Rose Rodriguez, love the images she used
and finally my little creation

That's it for today, thanks for coming by.  I hope you're inspired to try and creating something with a SteamPunk theme. 

Have a wonderful week!
