Another ATC

This was a very hard ATC to take a picture of. It was also pretty hard to make! The circle is a TRP w/an image stamped on it. The light pink is a post it note I used so the image would show up on the white background I used to take the photo. If you look closely, you can see the note Soon wrote to me. :)

This was very hard to get together. I should have turned the back of the ATC over before cutting the hole, it would have made it easier to line up. Live & learn! In retrospect, I'm not overjoyed w/the pink "girly girls" I made w/my label maker. I think it takes something away from the card. But, the cards have already been sent on to Kelly, the swap hostess so, that's the way they stay!

As promised, more posts!

This is for another swap of Sherri's. I absolutely LOVED it when I did it but then my 13yo dd weighed in on it & now I'm not so sure. The sprinkles are stickles but not as "wow" as I would have liked. I LOVED the patterned paper!

Yes, I am still here & I've actually stamped!

I have been here, just no time for posting. The kids & I are out of school! Woohoo!! We leave for vacation in 3 days! My parents are coming with us! Yikes! My kids are OVERJOYED to take grandpa to the waterpark. My mother is another story.

Here are some of the things I've done in the last several weeks. Lots'o'swaps!!

These are all for swaps that Sherri is holding. First is he Paisley swap. I really like this card although I feel like it might needs something more. It's also upside down. I think.
The 2nd card is for her Polka Dot ATCs. this was my 2nd attempt. The first card I did looked much better in my head than it did in person!
The third is Passionate about Pink!! Well, since I LOVE pink, this was right up my alley!! Really Blinged this one up w/stickles in the flower center & a HS/HA jewel (some got Heidi, some got Hero Arts).
I'll post more cards tomorrow. My list is long for tomorrow, laundry, shopping for a Pampered Chef party, getting stamp stuff ready for the friends who will stay AFTER the PC party. PACKING!!! Oh yeah, the bank. Got my last paycheck until fall. I guess there is a downside to not working?
