Better late than never

I almost always write my posts and schedule them to post at 12:30 a.m. Last night I just didn't feel like it. I'll blame it on the fact that it was snowing and we now have over an inch of snow on the ground again.

I could blame the snow for me not getting my journal page finished too but I think that one has more to do with procrastination. It could also have something to do with the fact that I was making more ATC's

Here' is card #2. This one started by gluing strips of book page on the card and then painting the top red and the bottom blue. Then I dug in my stash of stickers and found some patriotic stickers. I chose the "brave" sticker to become part of the text.


In a future post I'll be showing you how I made the backgrounds for the next two cards. Again I dug in the stickers and found some flowers to go with this cheery colored card. The saying was printed on paper then cut out and glued to the card and outlined with a black sharpie.

No stickers on this one but the same method for the text. It doesn't show well but the center of the flower in the lower left corner is a yellow gem that I glued on

You have been having a lot of fun making these ATC's and they are all great! I love the patriotic one.

Those are all terrific. Like the stickers and I like that saying the best in the first one. That stinks that you have more snow. It is very cold here.

They are beautiful!! I LOVE the yellow flower!! Yes, that is my favorite. But I love the rest also, especially the BRAVE sticker. I am on my way to a funeral, and it is snowing here too. WHAT is going ON, it is almost April! That is one thing I love about your blog. I always know when you will be posting, so I can look for you.

Well, sometime you just don't feel like doing things. It's all good.

I love your crafts. The first one is my favorite.

Have a fabulous day. My best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

I like all 3! You inspire me Ann. I hope I get to craft again one day. If so, I'm all over these ATCs! Snow snow go away. Lil Ann & Gibbs want to play. :))

Snow sucks! Your cards definitely DO NOT. Totally delightful and, as always, I'm floored by your creativity.

You are so talented and creative. Love your cards - they are so bright and have a nice happy feel to them.

Have a nice weekend - I think you need to send a card to Mother Nature to remind her to hit the 'spring' button on her remote weather control.

Hugs -katie
