Kids Making Cards!

Yesterday was a really fun day because my cousins Myscha and Myckenzie came over for my birthday party and they stayed the night.  We made cards together and I took some pictures.  Yey!!!

Here are the girls and their creations:





We had a lot of fun and I think the recipients of these cards are going to love them!

I’m very sick right now and I’m about to call in to work, but I’m glad i got to see some of my girls.  We had so much fun!

Later queenies!

My First ATC….Uuuum. Hmm…yeah.

So, whatever trait is in a person that makes them love making and exchanging ATCs…yeah, I don’t have it.

I found the ATC thing very frustrating.  I DID use an image I’ve been waiting to use though and he was just as easy-peasy as I thought he would be to color (you’ll probably be able to guess why).



I am too tired to put product details, but this is a Tiddly Inks image and I colored with Copics.


Entered in:

Tiddly Inks: Create an ATC


Yeah, I just….it’s so SMALL.  Jeesh!  As you can see, I made the image too big…so I strung some string through it and it will most likely become an ornament for this year’s Xmas tree. :)

Thanks for looking!

Night queenies!

I’m trying this new thing where I make a different post for each card so I can enter one challenge more than one time with a valid entry.  For some reason InLinks won’t let you post the same URL twice – which makes sense for most things I guess.

Until…well I’ll be posting again in a few minutes so…until then queenies!
