I created the above illustration as an ATC for Fannie. Her wonderful artwork inspired me to create something natural for her... but also vibrant and uplifting, because that is how she comes across. So, thank you Fannie for your continued inspiration and I hope you like the ATC.
I will post it to IF this week, as it's fitting for this weeks theme, hopefully she won't mind. =)
Also included in this post is a picture of my sons CARS birthday cake. It was so much fun to make (and to eat), the speedway was made up of crushed Oreo cookies and was a HUGE hit with the kids. Unfortunately, the weather was not as fantastic, so the party was indoors. I did prepare a craft - the kids decorated foam license plates and we played some fun little games. Best of all, the birthday boy had a great time and at the end of the day, that is all that really matters. Thanks for all your well wishes... wish I could have shared some of the cake!
