The Trading Cards Are Here!
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.
