Incy Wincy challenge 75

Hi all,

I know I'm a bit late, but as this is my first post of 2011, I would like to say Happy New Year to you all. On New Year's Eve, we went to see the 9pm fireworks that take place on the Harbour Bridge. We went with friends and found a great place to see them which wasn't too crowded. They do a family one at 9pm when it has just got dark and then they have even better ones for the midnight ones. They were wonderful and even Martha managed to stay up and see them (we tried to get her off to sleep, but her change in routine made her think it was party time!) We then went round to a friend's house for food (the kids went to bed). On New Year's Day it was about 40 degrees C so we spent it hanging around their swimming pool. Tomorrow is Daisy's first day back at kindy for two weeks and she is really looking forward to seeing her friends again.

Well, it's Monday and so it must be a new challenge at Incy Wincy. This week, we want to see ATC's. An ATC is an Artist's Trading Card - the size is 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches (64mmx89mm) and they are a great way to showcase your art on a small canvas. This week we are sponsored by Aspire to Thrive who are offering a $10 voucher to their store. On to my ATC. I used a great image from Aspire to Thrive. I inked the background with distress ink and decoupaged the butterfly.

What a beautiful ATC, Nikki! Love those colours!!

Yes, I agree with you - I think being so far away from my family is putting me off, but my hubby is raring to go!
