OH DARN, don't you hate when that happens???? :swoon:Now I HAVE to make 2 more cards.....gee whiz....more cards to make....;)

Wow, just had a peek through the thread while I had a few free minutes. I love all of them that have been posted. Everyone so creative. These ATCs are truly an inspiring media/format. I do have to say I've been having the strangest dreams this past week...my cards are less statuesque and a bit more fantasia than the others posted here.

Thanks to Elena for hosting another interesting subject!

stormarela

The environment fairy guy, David Suzuki, is on TV all the time here, I think one of the shows he does is called, The Nature of Things. He really is an environmentalist.

redplantlady
08-25-2008, 01:31 PM
