Today is my youngest sister's birthday, and I want to wish her the happiest, ever! My sister Lisa is one of the funniest, sweetest, kindest people I've ever known. She's a great wife, a wonderful mother, and a terrific sister. Shortly after I started my blog, I emailed her the link and told her to take a look. She was very complimentary, but said she had one question: "What's an ATC?" (My exact question when I first heard about them!) I explained that it was a little art card of a certain size and that it could only be traded or given away, never sold--and last night I decided I'd make a special one for her birthday and send it to her. So, here is a little Artist Trading Card for you, Lisa--also, look in your mailbox today and you should have a package waiting for you, and above all, have a very, very Happy Birthday!!!!! I love you and miss you very much! (PS-if you click on the picture, you can see a larger version of the ATC--the picture doesn't really do the glittery effect justice, but you get the idea!)

Jann, love the ATC to your sis.:)

- clicked on yourprofile, didn't see an email, so I just had to comment here about The 3 Lives of Thomasina. Did you see it when you were younger, or the newer release? I couldn't believe someone else besides me listed it, it's a little obscure:) They left out the part that pulled on my heartstrings in the newer release, when she comes back to see the doll in her bed on that rainy nite.

Just wondering...Lydia
