Hi peeps! A very Happy Hump Day – hope you’re having a great week! Most people know that Blogger discontinued Feedburner last summer, and several of my friends with Blogger blogs switched over to Follow.It as the mechanism for inviting people to follow their blogs. Well this morning it dawned on me that I hadn’t seen posts for quite some time from those friends using Follow.It. So I went to log into my Follow.It account to see what was going on and got a message that my account had been deactivated. WTH?! Deactivated? Why? So I sent them a message and have yet to get a response although they have REactivated my account (because I was able to log in a little bit ago) and my friends’ blogs are all nicely listed, just as before, with no rhyme or reason for the deactivation. And what nice (NOT) customer service to not response to my message. I’m so tempted to investigate other alternatives for my challenge blogs if this is the poor level of business and customer service they are putting out there. Okay, now on to my project! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve stopped in this afternoon to share an artist trading card I created for The Outlawz February Freebie/Progressive Challenge. We were gifted the adorable Flower Pot Hat from Hetty Clare to create with this month, and it’s been a minute since I’ve created an ATC so that’s what I decided on.
I cut two standard 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ ATC blanks from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock and rounded the corners. I printed the digital image on CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers, and fussy cut it leaving a very narrow margin around the image. I adhered the image to one of the ATC blanks, added three Eyelet Outlet Mini Lady Bug Brads (where the lady bugs were drawn on the image), and adhered the second ATC blank to the back. I applied tiny dots of Ranger Glossy Accents to the centers of each flower and the dots on the image, and added a Tim Holtz Quotations Metallic Sticker which completed the ATC.
And one more peek… such a cute image that made an awesome ATC!
