Angela's ATC cards


Ugh. At least that's what I was thinking as the deadline to send my ATCs to the Lucky 13 meeting (see post below) drew near. I had to call Cheryl to have her remind me what the requirements were. As it happens, I was sitting on the floor of my craft room when I called her and I had Earth Day on my mind (my family started a new tradition of eating in the park and using no electricity for the evening) so as I chatted with Cheryl, I started working on my ATC cards using some of the "I can't bear to throw it away even though I can't think of what to do with it" materials I had lying within reach. The results are these crazy bubble wrap ATC cards that I decorated with the gorgeous orange mesh our oranges and grapefruits come in. I think they're fun, my husband declared them ugly. It seems so wasteful to package fruit this way but I am fascinated by the color and texture of the mesh. No one loves man-made materials like I do. In high school, I promised my friends that if I ever had twin girls, I would absolutely name them Polly and Esther in honor of the fabulous man made fabric... Then I found out that the mother of Dear Abby and her equally famous, advice-giving twin, Ann Landers, had beaten me to the idea. But I digress. Happy Earth Day!
