ATC and wish me luck!

Just wanted to share an ATC (Artist Trading Card) I created using the new Gina K Designs Stamp TV kit (Eclectic Summer) ribbons and paper and the One Free with Three--Lazy Days of Summer set.I paper pieced the sail to keep the feel patriotic. The sentiment is embossed in white on the blue.

I love creating ATCs and always forget about them---they are the perfect project when you don't have much time!!!

Speaking of not having much time--I am working hard trying to get ready for TWO birthday parties tomorrow. My oldest (known in blogland as Random.Cara) turns 13 and my youngest, Lauren, turns 4 this week and we are having her party tomorrow as well.

Princesses during the day----teenager sleepover/movie at night.....wish me luck!
(If you don't hear from me for awhile...you know I didn't make it out alive!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the ATC. Good luck this weekend. When in need, take a big deep breath; even mom's can take time-outs...(they don't always have to be a bad thing)

Love the red, white, and blue card! Good luck, especially with the teenage sleepover. I lived through many of those so you will probably survive, can't promise much sleep though!

I love the ATC. I love red, white, and blue, even when it isnt a holiday. Also HB to your girls.
I also have a favor, if you would go to my blog, www.searchingforarainbow.blogspot.com and read the one titled Wonder. It is about a tragic situation, then Pat from SouthernBreezes suggested RAK with cards for the little injured girl. I would love for you to pass the word around so this brave little girl, could get lots of cards. Thanks

OMG! When I look at this ATC with it's paper pieced sails, I think of my son and his first sailboat. He was 19 and it had sails that look so much like this. I could see him sailing anywhere because of those fabulous sails! BTW, I love this! Kheila
