is our theme for the July swop at 'ATC Swop UK'.
I have done 5 again this month. I think that 'Letters' and 'Colours' are amongst the most popular themes as the field is really wide open.
My good friends Debs and Mandi stayed with me last week for a couple of nights. It was so good to catch up with news and gossip after a longish time between seeing each other and I did persuade Debs to get back into some crafting - and hopefully some ATCs is where she is going to start. Debs had a terrible time last year with many heart attacks and a triple bypass and we are all so glad that she is still with us.
Debs has told our organiser Sue that she is going to enter some this month so I am mentioning it here just to make sure she does. It was Debs who first got me into doing ATCs. It was at a craft session at my house - many years ago - and my fellow CD Sunday teamie Pamela was with us as well. I can't remember if it was Pamela's first go with ATCs then or not. I remember I had a housefull and I believe Pamela got the short straw and was sleeping on a lilo. It was a fun time though.
Anyway - here are the 'G' is for ........ ATCs that I sent off
I enjoyed making them. My favourite is the second one. I found the image on the internet and I have added lots of sparkly miniature butterflies made with my Pinflair punch. I have added sparkle to the red butterfly and a red gem to her hair. It doesn't show very well in the photo but even though I say so myself - it does look good.
Have a good day.
