Marian ATC swap Kimberlee hosted.
To say that we were excited to receive them is an understatement. First of all, little kids hardly ever receive mail ... but when they do, it's always Something Good.
The creativity and sweetness evident in the cards just made us all smile and say, "Awww" about a hundred times. (No, I am not exaggerating.) The gorgeous cards remind us of the richness of the Catholic Church in that our expressions of love are so uniquely us.
I'm posting pictures of the adorable little treasures that we received, so if you recognize one that you did, well, thank you so much from the Paper Dali family. (I did recognize Jessica's name in the envelope addressed to me and was delighted. ♥ One of her children's cards also showed up in the envelope of one of my children.)
In my eight-year-old son's envelope: (Visit here to see what he sent out.)
In my 9-year-old daughter's envelope: (Visit here to see what she sent out.)
In my envelope: (Visit here to see what I sent out.)
These dear little treasures need to be placed where they won't get lost or dog-eared like all our books. I'd like to do something creative to store them, but for now, I've found a few templates for making an ATC storage case:
Trading Card Holder from TLC (Just switch a picture of Mary for the baseball on the cover. *grin*)
Trading Card Holder (in a traditional plastic baseball-card sheet format)
If you made any of the above ATCs, please know that they were most happily received and have found a good home. We appreciate dearly the time and imagination taken to make each one ...
