My first Ketto & my first ATC!

I couldn't wait to use my new Ketto's that were RAK'd to me by Shonna. So last night I sat down and made this nifty little diaper fold card. It's super easy to make - I mean SUPER easy. You can find the tutorial here. No adhesive needed either (which is good b/c I ran out of my ATG tape today wahhhh). For my double sided paper I actually adhered together 2 cooridinating single sided paper. I wish I could remember where I first saw that technique - it was during one of my many blurfing sessions this week....If it was from your blog, please leave me a comment so I can give you proper credit! It's an awesome way to use some of your single sided paper if you're ever like me and needing a double sided sheet for something.... I colored Anise Ketto with Copics and Bics and added bling whereever I could, ie stickles on her wings and the center of the flower! The third prima is actually a mistake...LOL...when I used my crop-a-dile to adhere the front flower I accidently created a hole in the back as well!!! Lesson learned...but I actually think the mistake turned into a beautiful addition - what is that saying, there is never a mistake in stamping only an opportunity?!? I added some hot chocolate packs and chocolate covered expresso beans and gave it to my manager as today was her last day. She'll be missed!
----------------------------

My first ATC!!! Wow, I never knew what the big deal was with these little things but NOW I do! I loved making these. The smaller area actually lets you embellish and get creative. I made this for the Club Anya group at PCP. I'm a little late but they are going out PRIORITY first thing in the AM and I am HOPING they will make it there by Tuesday in time for the swap. I feel so bad that I took forever to do them, but I had no idea I would make The Digi Shack DT and since it was Easter weekend I didn't have a lot of time to stamp and the time I did have was devoted to the DT. I stayed up until 3:30a last night coloring these and ran out of E00 doing so!!! LOL I am running out of a lot of stuff darnit!!! I hate when that starts to happen - it's like when a lightbulb goes out, then they all start going out. I stopped by the art store though today and picked up another E00 since it would be at least 3 weeks for the refill to come in. Um, seriously, not going to go THAT long without coloring with my E00, I use it on all my skin tones! LOL Anyway, I hope the gals in my group like these. I really love how they turned out.

Love your diaper fold card and ATC's. Congratulaions on your winnings and the awesome RAK. Wow! Those are so cute. I will have to get some when the budget is loosened up a bit. Having my hours cut in half is the pits!!! Anywho way to go.
