Get ready for.....

 Colorful Creations February 1st BE INSPIRED BY CHALLENGE.  
 Hope you'll give it a try!-just click the Colorful Creations blinkie
 on the right side of this page!  Here is the INSPIRATION:

I took one look at this inspiration and its' clustering and
 immediately thought: one grandson on one end  and one grandson on 
the other end.   The second thought was a no brainer for me-
I LOVE everything hearts! and this is the result:

Lower left is precious Brian and
upper right is equally precious Talan!

Thanks for popping in today to take a look!

Ya gotta laugh at this age difference!

This is a sketch from My Scraps & More Sketches.  
and I thought it would be perfect for a couple of photos I have of my son, 
Kevin and his "new" cousin, Marrah this past Christmas.  It's just a 
chuckle and so cute when you think that she is "0" and he is "29"...
 That is how old I was when I had him!

Interesting ATC Topics....

Over at Splitcoaststampers (shhh I am not much of a stamper!), I entered  an ATC swap called a "PAT" (post-a-topic) Swap.  You enter with a topic under the main topic (chosen by the hostess) for each group.  There are 5 people under my miscellaneous topic, and I am to make 4 for the other people.  So far the topics have been chosen by 3 of the 4:  Fairies, Dr. Seuss and What I learned in 4th Grade.  I have completed the latter 2 topics and these proved to be quite fun!

Thanks for taking a look!

ATCs (Artist Trading Cards)

Have you checked  out ?  There you will find tons of Swaps and Challenges, changing usually on a monthly basis.  I host a monthly ATC (Artist Trading Card) SWAP there (under MarciLB).  When you log in there you have to go to the "FORUMS" tab at the top of the page...let the drop down box show and click "ALL FORUMS"...go down down down until you see SWAPS...then look around!  I NEVER thought I'd do ATCs-well I am addicted.  There are infinite ways to decorate a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch card and then the fun begins when you "trade"/swap them with people all over the country or the world!

Here are some examples of cards that I have done recently...
