Hi to you all, since i haven't posted for a few days i won't have told you that i was fortunate enough to win a challenge over at Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge.  I was thrilled at the chance to win some images from Lemon Shortbread.  Jenn and Vera were both very quick to respond which was fantastic as i got to choose my images quicker a hard choice though looking through Vera's fabulous images. I used to create lot's of ATC's at one point so thank you Jenn for giving me the kickstart to enjoy them again.  Anyway the challenge over at Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge this week is Fins, Fur or Feathers.  This is the ATC I made for the challenge.

Good afternoon,  Are you all having a lovely relaxing Sunday.  Back from having a lovely lunch with friends who were down for the weekend. They have just left to travel back home, so I have some free time to share this card with you.

The card I have made today is a lovely colour in mint and white, it's a birthday card for an Aunt who's birthday it is next month.  I was stuck as to what colours and what style to make for her.  I came across a sketch challenge that would fit the job in hand.

Good afternoon to you all, I had a Wordpress blog but it seemed to be so difficult to use and because of this I didn't keep the blog up together, so I thought I'd try Blogger, seems to have a good write up so here i am.

Well it's nearly the weekend.  I've been baking today, cakes and pies as we have friends over for the weekend, cleaning and even a little crafting. 

Today's crafting session is an ATC I made earlier.  I had fun making this one, I'm also in the process of making an Autumn one, but it's not finished yet.

The name of my ATC is Misfit, which I think is quite apt for this one.

.  Purple card cut into size (2.5" x  3.5")
.  Pink brick paper
.  The image is a Poser Tube from a Halloween file
.  Misfit, Lips and the Ornate Cross are from my stash
.  Movie Reel Frame is die cut
