After last night's cookie baking party and ATC making extravaganza, Meital declared the day "The best Halloween ever!" I am one happy mama. The cards above are Meital's ATCs. She tried several new things last night and came up with some real winners, if you ask me!
I only managed to make these two during our art session, and I give full credit to Meital for coming up with the idea of the small shapes cut from black paper. I used some of her leftover pieces in my ATC.
I also managed to come up with an idea for the Winter/Glitter ATC swap I'm in over at Club Posh. I got my cards finished (all seven of them!) today. Except, my daughters think I was a tad parsimonious with the glitter. I had hoped to avoid the glitter-everywhere-until-2020 syndrome by using glitter glue, but the girls feel more bling is needed. So tomorrow I'll be touching up the cards. If they dry in time, I'll post one here so you can see what you think. That, of course, assumes that the glitter will actually show up in a scan or photo. We'll have to wait and see.
The knitted gift for Meital is nearly done, and barring unforseen acts of Nature, I may well have it all set up in her room by the time she gets home from school tomorrow. I can't wait to see her reaction!
