This and That

Hi, everyone! Today I'm sharing two projects:  a card and an ATC. First up is my card. I used a cute digi set from Imagine That...Digis by Kris.  This galaxy background that I made with watercolours was a leftover from a previous project.


  • Digital image and sentiment:  Imagine That...Digis by Kris - To the Moon and Back (pre-coloured)
  • Dies:  Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangles, stars from Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card, generic speech bubble die
  • Galaxy background:  Made with watercolours

By the way, Imagine That...Digis by Kris is having an awesome fundraiser during the month of February.  Check out the Valentine Kitty pack that you will receive when you spend $10.  I just got mine and will be sharing some cards soon!


Below is the ATC I made! This is another one for Janis at Her Peaceful Garden. She is having an ATC party this month, with weekly themes, and we are also learning a lot about Janis! Not only does she love cats, but she also loves chickens, and that is this week's theme: Chickens! Please go check out Janis's month-long party and help her celebrate! There will be a new theme each Monday in February.

For those new to ATCs, or Artist Trading Cards, they are small cards measuring 2.5" x 3.5". They are a lot of fun to make and share with fellow crafters!   I call this one, "Nom, Nom, Nom." This is not my usual style, but I had a lot of fun making it!  This ATC will be on its way to Janis shortly, along with the cat ATCs I made last week.


Here's the back of the ATC, which I created using Microsoft Word.

How fun both your projects, Kitty! The first one made me laugh with that sentiment sentiment just perfect to match the cute lovely alien! Great scene, your galaxy background looks amazing!!
The ATC has a fab vintage look and yes, isn't your usual style, but that cute sun gives it a lovely cute feel... :) and the vintage isn't too much serious with those "Nom nom nom"! :D
Adorable design, and love the stenciled background!
Big hugs!

Kitty....I ADORE this wonderful ATC!!! I love vintage country images and am charmed by this little gal feeding her chickens. Fabulous mixed media look to your background with the chicken wire stamping. I am cracking up at your "Nom nom nom" title....so UN-vintage of a sentiment that it totally makes me laugh. :D :D :D

Thank you so much for joining in my ATC BD party!!
