I had a piece of clip art last night that wouldn't let me go to bed until I turned it into an ATC. Here are the results of that hurried endeavor.
Tell me what you think of her, I find the clip art so compelling.I have made a bunch more of her decorated in different ways, they are on my flickr account which shows cards before they have been send to groups so if you don't want to worry about seeing things before they are send out don't go look other wise you can see all my LTC/ATC's here

The first card up is by Larva Lady and is called "Sweet Gum Ball Tree".
It is too bad that the vibrancy of the colours don't come through as well as the could being scanned.
The second card I want to show you is from Alamocito and it is called Autumn Tag Sale.
Alamocito's work is as amazing as ever!
Next we have a card by Falling Leaves called" White Ash"
The colour and vibrancy of this card is outstanding!
The "Nebreaska Cottonwood" by Ona Journey is up next:
The colour and contrast are wonderful!
The card that I submited for this ring is called "Leafy Trio"
Giving you a taste of a variety of wonderful leaves that we see in the Autumn.
Next we have this beautiful card by Frasier 4
It shows a wonderful spectrum of Autumn Colours.
This card is called "Oak Leaves"
We next have a lovely card by resQlou:
It is called "Oak and Acorn" aand has a wonderful layout.
Our next lovely card is from Dolphinwanderer:
It is called "Maple Leaf" and is a gorgeous looking card.
We next have a card from Romana that is on orange paper but scanned much differently:
Despite the fact that the paper didn't scan in the bright orange it was made with, the embossed leaves are still awesome looking.
We next have a colourful number from Blackberry Patch:
"Autumn's Berry Trees" is a wonderful card with fantastic colour.
We will finish our Autumn Showcase with a card from Sudoko Crazy:
These lovely Maple Leaves make a fitting end to our collection.

Let's start with a cool drink from Marmalade Called " South Seas Adventures, Please may I have another"
Delicious isn't it? We can sit back and sip it as be we look over the other cards."
Well if we are going to have a nice refreshing drink we might as well have a snack too while we peruse the cards.
Here is a yummy Jello snack from Mah Jongg Queen that she created for my Abstract Ring.
So now that we have treats, let's look at some of the cards that are too cool to miss.
This card was carved by Esmerelda and it is called "Woodston Fishing Station, St, Cyrus, Scotland.
High on the cliffs overlooking the North Sea in Scotland, this Bed and Breakfast was a magical step back in time for me. Peaceful beyond words it was as though I had finally found the place I had been long been searching for.
Some Day I will return
This next ATC I made out of scraps from other LTC/ATC's. I call it Firefly.
She consists of a little bit of this and that but it still turn out a very pretty card.
I created this LTC for the 2009 Christmas ormament exchange. You will find here a picture of the card I made as well as the ornament that I made that the card based based on.
This is the ornament I made for the 2009 swap.
For part of the Egyptian ring NSFBeads created this masterpiece of Canonic Jars.These jars were used by the Ancient Egyptians to store the internal organs removed during the mummification .
Our final card tonight is another masterpiece from mrstrwndl. He calls it " I go to sleep to dream."
Please let the Artists know how much you like their work by letting them

will always be my first love but ATC give you a different freedom and I enjoy
both! Have a look, they always look better in person of course.
Please tell what you think of this new creation
We also had a bit of trouble with with Woodwhittler thinking it was recording his name each vote after the first one and it was not. This is quite obvious as you can see the daily vote after the first one.
One of the reasons I wanted a name each day was so that I would not be spammed by anon. votes. I have to say that in my opinion the votes that did come up as as anon were mainly accidental. You were all very well behaved!
For this reason I have decided to award second place to both Shorty and Woodwhittler (who would have won if he knew how Blogger worked.)They were fairly close in votes any way and I feel good about doing it this way.
For all the other participants I am a little sad that you didn't get in there and vote for yourself each day as well as get your friends and family to help out as our top 3 participants did but I really appreciate you playing my game and maybe next time we will have even more of a race.
1. All our participants will get a special participation LTC.
2. Our first place winner will get an LTC for that plus a small gift.
3. And our 2 second place winners will get LTC's for that.
If I have missed any thing (still feeling under the weather) or made some mistake, please point it out to me ASAP.
