The Flametamer wants to be your friend

I had this idea for an ATC background for awhile now. And then I got thinking about a friend for Waterboy… and this is who came of it. :)

There are two available if someone wants a trade.

Natalie – This is an ATC, an Artist Trading Card. I make them and trade them for other ATCs by other artists. ATCs must measure 64 by 89 millimetres, (2 1/2 x 3 1/2″) the same size as hockey cards. Any design technique is permissible, as long as the result is original.

There’s some helpful information about them on this site if you’d like to read up: http://www.cedarseed.com/air/atc.html

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
