Shades of blue

Has it really been that long since my last post? I keep meaning to post, but real life keeps getting in the way!

Top row: "God Save the Queen", "60's", "Castle".
Bottom row: "T is for Time", "Bluebell, "Man in the Moon"

I finally made some ATC:s not related to the Craftster alphabet swap! It was great to be able to work a little more freely, and I had lots of fun making them. And it also made me realize just how much papercraft stuff I have lying around - wallpaper, images, stamps, ephemera packs... I'm forbidding myself to buy more until 2009!

I'm keeping two of these cards as inspiration, and the "Time" card is for the Alphabet swap, but "Castle", "60's" and "Man in the Moon" are all up for trade! Let me know if you're interested!

And I also wanted to show you one of the cards I made for the latest Alphabet swap:



I painted the nest using watercolors. When I was little I used to paint all the time, I don't know why I haven't for so long. It's great!
