Artist Trading Blocks Inspiration Team - I Made It

Hello everyone and thanks once again for stopping by the blog. I have a wonderful and exciting announcement to make. 
A couple of weeks ago I announced that Amy Bowerman over at Plucking Daisies was having a call for the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team. They recently announced the Team and what a wonderful group of such talent. 
Well, there is also an Artist Trading Block Inspiration Team that was assembled and guess what? I MADE IT!!! I'm so excited because ever since I made one for the CHA booth back in December/Jan I have been hooked. 
You can check out the team announcement on the website here:

Artist Trading Block Inspiration Team

We were asked to show some of our favorite Artist Trading Blocks that we have created, so here are some of my favorites:
The original post for this steampunk creation is here:

and lastly, these is the very first Artist Trading Blocks or ATBs that I have ever made, this is what made me fall in love with them:

I am so thrilled and over the moon excited about being on this wonderful team of talented people. 

Make sure to go on over to the Eileen Hull site and check out the New Inspiration Team and the wonderful new Challenges, here is link:

Art With Heart Challenges

The Art with Heart Challenge is a monthly celebration of creativity!  Each month the Inspiration Team will be showcasing their Art with Heart created with Eileen Hull’s innovative Sizzix dies. They will be following a broad theme left entirely open to creative interpretation.  We invite you to play along with us and share YOUR art with heart!
We want this to be a place for everyone to create, inspire and share.  We would love to see what you can do with Eileen Hull’s fabulous products but this is not a requirement.  Use what ever products your artful “heart” desires.  Art is for everyone so come along and share your Art with Heart!
