ATC's and Baby Card

I entered my first ever ATC (artist trading cards) swap at outta this funk and I finished those up today. Blog Here, Site Here. I really wanted to use my cricut and cut something to go on the cards but of course the cards are too small for that. 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 So I decided to use some new Michael's $1.oo stamps and a new blender pen from HL that I haven't used yet. A good excuse to play with new stuff right? I'm not 100% happy with the sponging. I didn't have any sponges so I just used the ink pad which didn't work too well. But that's okay. I may end up redoing these just for fun.

This is a pink and brown card that I made Beth for the baby shower. Now that I think of it, I don't remember seeing her open it. I bet it got thrown away accidentally. Her little girl was opening the gifts and throwing away all the paper and I bet it got put in the trash by mistake. I'll have to ask her about that. I really need to invest in more embossing folders. I think I may just do that next pay period. I love the textured look the folders give.
