Whew -- I just finished making my artist trading cards for tomorrow night's swap at the ATC Exchange Group. I was sincerely thinking I wasn't going to be able to get to the ATCs because of the plaster cloth work lately.
I also added some color to the edges of my house book pages...I wasn't happy with the white edges.
This month's theme for the ATCs is "Light & Dark". I thought of coffee immediately. The end result is somewhat different from my original idea, but I kept getting a bit carried away with hints of color. I like my cards.

And the house book pages...
|half of the pages have the purple/green edges and half have the blue/green ones -- they look better in person|
