Project 52 ATCs for July - Weeks 26 thru 30

I have discovered that I absolutely LOVE doing Artist Trading Cards in sets, rather than one at a time. There's something really fun about coming up with a theme, and trying to make each one different while still having some continuity throughout the set. Plus, I love seeing them all lined up together!

Anyhoo, I made my Project 52 ATCs for July as a set done with the June Studio Calico kit. Here's how they turned out (click on the image to see the details)...Link

Here's how the backs look. I used these fun vintage playing cards that I got at the thrift store, and then I totally forgot to make sure the cards were right side up when I designed the front - AARGH! Oh well, mistakes just give it charm, right? LOL
Next on my project list is the "L" page for my "A Year in the Life of an Art Journal" project. I can't wait to work on that tonight!

Did you see the prompt over at The Next Step this week? It's a cute little mini-album made to hold your sewing needles and pins. What a fun idea! I really hope to get time to do that one! It's not on my Project list, so I may have to sneak it in this weekend.

Today is the day that the new challenge goes up at the "These are a Few of my Favorite Things" blog. I can't wait to see what it is!

That's all the news for today. I hope you have a completely awesome and inspired Thursday! I will be back tomorrow with another update!
