Inchies and ATCs

Further to my sewing break, which I am now itching to get back to, I joined a swap on Craftster for beginners inchies and ATCs.  For those who don't know what that is, they are both papercrafts that can be decorated however you wish and are limited only by size.  An inchies is an inch by an inch square and an ATC means altered trading card so is the same size as a regular playing card.  In the swap I took part in we all chose themes for our crafts and I swapped with 3 other memebers meaning I made 3 ATCs and 10 inchies.  I highly recommend Craftster swaps, they are extremely well run and have a huge amount of different themes and crafts.
1st ever inchies

I have displayed my inchies and ATCs in a card ready for posting and mine are travelling all over the world which gives me a little thrill of excitement!

 A few of the inchies I have made interactive including this owl hiding on a branch...
...and the robot hiding his heart.
The ATCs were a little bigger and I picked my favourite theme from each one to craft for it.  There were loads of things I could have chosen but I went with....

For some reason, even though I flipped the photos before uploading them they just won't stay horizontal, any ideas?
