More Altered Playing Cards

I finally put up a small Christmas tree and starting listening to Christmas music. Now I just need to break out the old Christmas movies - Rudolph, Santa Claus is Coming to town, etc. And the Scrooge movies - I guess you could call old Christmas movies our Holiday Tradition!

Anyway. . .

Here's week 13 of the Altered Playing Cards. Naturally I'm behind a couple of weeks! Story of my Life - The hurrier I go, the be-hinder I get! Not that I do anything in a hurry! I try to follow as close to what Claudine does as I can.

I love bees, even after getting stung!

I also made these two ATC's for the lottery on the ATCFUN group. I can't seem to just make one ATC at a time so I always end up with extras.

 Thank you for looking at my slowly updated blog this year and I hope everyone has a wonderful blessing-filled Christmas and New Year.

APC weeks 10 - 11 - 12

I'm so bad at updating this thing. I haven't done much this month, other than be sick. The weather can't make up its mind to be cold or warm. We had several days in the teens then snow, now we're having 50 degree days. They're predicting 70's for the weekend. Weird.

I did catch up on my APC's and participated in a couple of mingles. I got started on my Christmas Cards so maybe I will get them done before next Christmas!

APC week 10 - This funky face stuff really isn't my thing but I think they came out OK.

APC week 11 - Don't you just love snowmen? I do.

APC week 12 - These will be filled out eventually.

This one is on another group for hand drawn ATC's. I used a page from a foreign print book to paint my flowers on. I think this is my month's favorite.

This month's ATCFUN lottery  is "Broken Heart". Here's my entry.

And here is my ATC moon mingle for ATCFUN

This one is a post card. It resembles the APC I did earlier but the person I sent it to loves this sort of thing. I always make a second post card for my friend but it's different. I won't post it because she 'loves' surprises and I haven't mailed it yet.

That's about all I've done that's worth sharing.

. I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

More Altered Playing Cards.

Week 5 - I really like these backgrounds.

Week 6 - Wouldn't these make great Halloween cards!

Week 7 - These were done with die cuts: I didn't draw at all on these two.

Week 8 - I only drew one of the hearts. I think I'm getting lazy.

So much fun.

Thanks for looking.

I sure am having a hard time keeping up my blog lately. I'll blame summertime!

Just a few things I've done. This ATC is for a monthly lottery in ATCFUN. I didn't know what to draw, Haven't vacationed in a while. My friend Claudine gave me this idea. Thanks Claudine.

It's been a while hasn't it and I can't say I've done all that much art. Well, I could say it but it would be a big fat fib.  I did do a few ATC's
