It's okay, I was hiding. I took the kids outside to play tonight and was going to paint a bit on my cards with india ink, but one flew away! I found it, an hour later, 45 feet away and over a 6 foot fence. I decided to not paint outside in crazy wind anymore. :D

I've been playing around with fleur de lis ATCs and have posted two that will not be sent in for this swap. But if anyone here wants to trade for them, let me know! Janet

06-23-2008, 11:43 PM
I found a design I loved and made a couple of cards tonight. Theres a glare from my desk light on the right, that card looks like the other two.

06-24-2008, 12:32 PM
I like yours kysunflower! They remind me of a greeting card I made - I will have to dig it out and see if I feel any inspiration from that!

06-24-2008, 10:42 PM
Yippee - mine are done! Hope the recipients like them :D These are made with repurposed backgrounds - ATCs cut from an art journal that my son started and didn't finish. The green paper is banana fiber paper. The fleur de lis's are stamped on home made paper and last there is lavender and silver thread crossed across the card.

06-25-2008, 01:13 AM
I think they're lovely

06-27-2008, 03:58 PM
