A Nice Lazy Saturday!

We got snow last night; maybe five inches or so.  I planned on doing some crafts this weekend and with the snow, it worked out quite well!  

Here's one of the bird feeders in my backyard.
Dog tracks
Now, for the crafts.  I've been making ATCs for the first time.  I signed up for an ATC swap so need to make twenty.  I finished them and I'm overall pretty happy with them.  
Here's one

I stamped the image and then cut around the edge.  I colored the image using both watercolor pencils and markers.  The poppies, sky, house and the grass by the trees is watercolors.  The green background where the poppies are is a marker, along with the trees and the roof.   I then got a green piece of paper and cut around it; wrapped a bit of twine around that and then stuck it to the red card stock.  

I don't want to show the others; if you're participating I don't want to spoil the surprise!  Tomorrow I'm planning to do some mixed media canvases from the She Art Workshop that I've signed up for.  Housework is on hold for now!!!!

I hope you are having a great weekend!!

You sure got alot more than us at the moment. Mine will have fox tracks in it in the morning and cats later if ours dare to venture out.
Looks like you are having fun crafting.

Super ATC Kay - seems like housework priorities are just the same as mine :) We also have some snow here - as usual the UK has totally ground to a halt, we just never seem to cope :( Love, Di xx
