Apologies & promised ATC element freebie

Sorry but between family duties and severe pain, I've been missing here. Going to have to get shoulder looked at as just when I think it's fine, it acts up again. The latest had pain radiating into my neck and down spine to mid-back with occasional pain down right arm. I've got no time or patience for it! Today have to go for re-check on COPD but quickly want to give you the promised ATC elements. Again done individually as pngs and also as a collage sheet for those who prefer to print out. For anyone who doesn't know, ATC stands for artist trading card - a little piece of art that is to be traded among artists and friends. Standard size is just like a baseball card - 2.5" x 3.5". The idea has been around for years and is still a fun thing to do. You can include your little piece of art with a card or letter to a friend, tuck into a lunch box, etc. etc.

Here is a quick example of a completed (simple) ATC:
(Yes I adjusted the color of elements to match up.)
And here are some elements for you:

Last day of Spring Fantasy freebie

Today my chapter of the Red hat Society, the Red Lillies, took a lunch cruise on the Spirit of Norfolk with other Red Hat chapters. I'd never been on the Spirit of Norfolk so it ws something different. This is a cruise up and down the Elizabeth River in Norfolk that includes a buffet lunch and entertainment. Here is a photo of the ship:
Will post photos of the group as they get shared on FB. Today may be last day of Spring Fantasy. Here's what we have: 2 more papers, a fountain, mushrooms, and another rabbit.

Busy day and another Spring Fantasy freebie

Had two doctor appointments (regular follow-ups) and some errands, plus finished up the invitation flyer for group's May event. Day flew by. I made a mistake with today's zip. I'd enlarged the grass border you will see in the preview when I saw how it looked there. Saved new version but somehow saved it to the preview as a merged file. What can I say? That was late yesterday night. You won't find the grass in the zip, which probably isn't a big deal but it makes me angry with myself that I deleted the original of it so will have to make it again from scratch. But not tonight.
The zip contains another of P.Ann's adorable Poser figures which I combined with a flower and settled on a bench, a garden parasol, and a flower.
One more piece of business to take care of then I can get some slepp. Take care!

So sorry and freebie

While I really enjoyed having Larkin here on the weekend, by the time we took her home on Sunday, we were exhausted! Got no sleep Friday night as Larkin was like a puppy, going in circles in her sleep. Saturday night was a little better but we had played all day. Sunday morning we picked up Larkin's mother (my step-daughter) and Larkin's half-brother, Malachai and all of us went out to breakfast. When hubby and I got home, we crashed for a few hours. Wish I could bottle some of Larkin's energy!
Here is the zip of Spring Fantasy that you should have gotten on Saturday:
Thought you could use a few flying creatures.

More later (whihc might be tomorrow)
