An ATC, a Taco Pillow and a Christmas painting

Here's what I did for the October ATC card for the Creative Mom ATC Exchange. See more of my ATCs and odds and ends at
The Theme was Tell Me A Story. What immediately popped in my head when Amy mentioned the theme was The Wolf from Red riding hood reading about a past adventure with some local pigs!
Over the weekend my 7 year old created her first pillow. She's thrilled and now wants to try knitting. She's a girl after my own heart. Her pillow looks just like a taco... I think I'm going to sew some fun things on top to bring it to it's full taco-ability.
We also made a quick trip to emergency care for my little one's ears. Turns out a she had two ear infections... one of which was pretty bad. She's starting to feel better now.
Last night as the weekend came to a close Roxy and I sat in the living room and painted on canvas board. We both did the Christmas balls. I'll post tomorrow.

Cute illustration!!! Tell your daughter we hope she's feeling 100% better real soon!! And I am very impressed with your 7 yr. old! Wow! My daughter has yet to catch on with the knitting (I'm trying to patiently wait for her to join my obsession!!!). It is so much fun to create with your own daughter, isn't it?! :))

It really is. ANd she and I are going to learn knitting together which should be interesting.
I'll give Isabel your warm wishes.
