Garden Goddess ATC's

My toes are cold. I am wrapped in both a blanket and a very woolly, very warm, scarf. I am THIS CLOSE to dragging the little oil heater over to my desk and using it as a chair. I feel like I just might never ever get warm again!

I shouldn't complain. We've had such a mild, 'easy', winter.

Between this chill, and the plethora of seed catalogs Mr Pixie has strewn about the house, I can't help but long for spring.

With daydreams of blooms and sunshine in mind, I pulled out "Garden Goddess" from Graphic 45.

I used papers from the 8x8 Garden Goddess Pad and went to town making a group of artist trading cards.

A whole bunch of flowers and figures were cut from various Garden Goddess papers, then I experimented with layouts and layers.

They probably took a lot longer than they needed to... but I'm certain the warm thoughts were taking off the chill!

The butterflies on the cards are snipped from Olde Curiosity Shoppe... but really, you could use any little paper butterflies.

That little blue patch of sky is a snippet from vintage music paper with some smushed up white and blue paint.

Want to make your own? Here's the supply list:

ATC blanks
Acrylic Paint
Old paper

**You could absolutely cut your own cardboard ATC blanks from a cereal box, but THESE chunky ATC blanks are some of my favourite things. They take an absolute beating without warping at all and are super thick and strong.

If you're in this hemisphere, I hope winter is being kind to you. Stay warm, lovelies!

P.S. While we're talking about warm thoughts... I'm escaping the cold next week and headed to a warmer climate (Helllloooo Cuba!) Only digital files will be available in the etsy shop from February 2nd to 11th and my internet will dodgy at best.
