Well, I found the time to make my six inchies for the Alphabet letter K swap this month but not the themed set. I chose K is for King and here are the results. Hope the gals like them.

I made these for a swap I joined for a set of three atcs and the theme was People. I had fun making these as I have not had much time to art it up lately at all. Just gives me the thirst for it again!

Here is the card I made for Diana's birthday and then demoes how to make it and we all made a Christmas one so they would have a pattern and the measurements to make more of them at home. It is putzy cutting all those pieces, but well worth it in the end. Good way to use up scraps of patterned paper as well. The birthday one I stamped onto patterned paper and the Christmas one did not have anything added to it as the paper itself was pretty busy.

I'm not sure what I have done but somehow I have wiped out all my old posts so I better get more going soon! On Veteran's Day, two of my girlfriends came over and we made cards for the troops. You can send 15 cards in each packet to the Red Cross and they send them to whoever needs them. What better day to make them on! We were each to come up with a card design and the supplies to make 15 so that we could assembly-line out 45 of them and then I wanted to teach them a card I learned so we had a fun day. I made lunch for us and we created, Of course, I did NOT have my idea done, but of course Diana had two sets ready to go and several other ideas. Nancy mailed them off to the Red Cross as she was the one who had the info and the idea to do this. It was a very fun and productive day!

I am sorry for neglecting my blog for so long but real life has gotten in the way lately and I have not had any me-time to play in my studio. Here are some atcs I made for our birthday club in one of my atc groups. Lyn said she enjoys script, florals, and the color blue and Liz said she enjoys men, black & white, and flourishes and swirls. I was able to make one of them for both gals as it has script in the background and I kept it black and white. Clever, huh!
