Thanks for checking out my craziness...

I have always been really crafty but never really had someone to share the excitement that I get when I create something new. I branced out of my little network of friends and found the exciting world of blogging and lots of new friends in the world wide web that love to be crafty like me.
So now I am trying new things and I get to share my craziness with the world.

On the 7th Day of Christmas

ATC SISTERHOOD 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

On the 7 Th Day of Christmas my true love game to me.... Seven Swans a Swimming

12 th Day of Christmas
 I cut my atc at 3.5 inches x 2.5 inches using midnight blue paper.  
I found the swan image on line and adjusted it to the varying sizes. 
I attached the swans at varying depths and  highlighted the feathers with silver stickles.  
I used a braided cord with clear tinsil for the embellishment and a glitter pen to make the number 7.

Waterfall Card

I created my first waterfall card. This was an ATC I created for a "Cultural You" swap. I wanted to highlight my Cherokee background so here it is... Cherokee Pride!

ATC Fridays

My dear friend at ATC Sisterhood has issued a Friday challenge. With each week uploading a new ATC created in the previous week. This week I choose to do a family tree since we will be surrounded by family this weekend. No... that isn't a misprint! Our son is actually the 4th generation "Roy" but there wasn't enough room to do great grads... lol!

I used glossy accent for the first time on this project and it was pretty awesome to see the "apples" come to life.

No need to water...

My mom was recently in the hospital and we weren't sure how long she would be so I wanted to do something that would cheer her up and that she could keep forever to remind her that true beauty comes from the inside. This is what I came up with and used my WONDERFUL wishblade to cut everything.

So here I am...

I have found a new outlet for all my crafty craziness... Artist Trading Cards! Better known as ATC's, they are little tiny ways to be creative. Best of all I get to trade them with other people who are just as crafty if not more so than I am. I just completed my first set and am well on the way to finishing my second. More pics to come!
