Before I knew it it was time to mail away the cards we had created and I took a few snapshots of the cards my girls had joyfully created [and the ones I drew up on what was my last 2 1/2 hours of child-free mom time for the school year--not counting the lovely afternoon break my parents gave me yesterday]. The girls were eager to see what cards would come in the mail for them and they were hopeful that they might even find out who got their cards. Imagine my delight when the day ours arrived I recognized one of the cards Ellie received and the name (and handwriting) of another little girl I read about online. Even better was when I got word from one of the bloggers that her daughter received Ellie's pink Blessed Mother card. I recall that we had a little dispute about that card. I said the Blessed Mother likes to wear blue and she told me that she thinks Mary likes pink. I backed off and let the little artist work her magic.
If you participated in the Marian ATC swap please consider blogging about your new artwork and linking to the Mr. Linky Kimberlee set up on her blog.
Summer has just begun and I'm already looking forward to the All Saint's ATC Swap that Kimberlee has graciously offered to host. The girls and I are already excited and even Bryan is interested to see what cards will come to us to celebrate his birthday. (He's an All Saint's Day baby which is a good thing because he needs a whole communion of saints to pray for him. In fact, he even gave the girls an idea for a card.)
