The Trading Cards Are Here!

December 2, 2010

Urgh. The post can’t seem to handle all of these pictures, so the pictures are floating around everywhere. I’m thinking you get the idea. 😉

I will put the younger three artists’ work and new treasures in a separate post.

As I mentioned in this post, all of the kids participated in the beautiful All Saints Day Artist Trading Card Swap (click through to get their story on the whole project) sponsored by the good folks from Pondered in My Heart. Our cards arrived today and boy were the kids ever excited! They were checking the mail every few minutes and I got a lovely glimpse out of an upstairs window of the three youngest kids each skipping down the driveway waving an envelope (we sent our cards in batches of two in business-sized envelopes).

Here are both sets of cards for each of the kiddos.

Ria (homeschool graduate and college applicant, age 17):

Here are the cards she drew: St. Edmund Campion, St. Anne Line, St. Adelaide, G.K. Chesterton and Venerable Pope John Paul the Great

She received the following cards: St. Padre Pio, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Monica, St. Elizabeth of Hungary and St. Josemarie Escriva

Gus (age 15) drew the following: St. Gregory the Great, St. John Bosco, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Pius X, St. Genesius

He received: St. Michael the Archangel, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, St. Martin de Porres, St. Agatha, St. Thomas More

Terri (age 12) drew the following:              St. Cecilia, St. Genevieve, St. Philomena, Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha

She received the following: St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Teresa Benedicta 0f the Cross, St. Elizabeth, St. Maria Goretti and St. Juan Diego/ Our Lady of Guadalupe

to be continued…

    Sorry you missed it. We barely squeaked in at the last minute, but it was a delightful project. I’m hoping to participate myself next time around – they had lots of grown-up artists (which of course made me think of you!). 🙂

    Amazing pieces of art. I’m very impressed with your children’s gifts… Each of the saint’s portrayed must be smiling in Heaven 🙂
