Saints Artist Trading Cards 2011

We had so much fun last year participating in Pondered In My Heart‘s ATC saint swap that we were thrilled they were doing it again.  Unlike last year, we made sure we took pictures of everyone’s cards before they went off in the mail.

Below you will find our artists’ works.  First, the process.  We gather a lot of saint books and art supplies and set up at the dining room table.  (John set up in his room.)  Veronica, at 3 years old, was given stickers to keep her busy.  We all went to work for the afternoon.

 

 

 

 

Now for the cards….(Please remember to click on the pictures for a larger view.)

Veronica’s cards (age 3)

Charlotte’s cards (age 6)

MaryEllen’s cards (age 8 )

James’s cards (age 11)

Kevin’s cards (age 13)

John’s cards (age 14 & eldest child)

Mom’s cards (never mind how old!)

Although I’m not an artist to say the least, it was very relaxing and fun to take the time to create some art.  When we receive our cards, I’ll try my best to get a post up about them.  After all, I still have a half completed post about our trip in May waiting for some attention.  A Mom’s work is never done!

Oh, I almost forgot.  We did take some pictures of Vincent that day.  It is a little challenging to get a good picture of him when  you are holding both the baby and the camera.
