ATC...

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all have had a Great Easter! Lots of Chocolate yummy!! The sun is shining here today still a bit Brrrr but I hear Spring is on it's way... mid-week they say!! Let's hope so..

I made an ATC, these are quite new to me have only made a few in the past and the Theme over at the Fun with  ATC's  Challenge is Script/writing... The background is stamped from a SU Stamp (the open sea) Love this stamp set!! Distressed with Vintage photo ink, the ink spots is a Paperartsy stamp & the fine gentleman is a stamp from (personal impressions) the pen nib is from the Tim Holtz range!! I hope you like it!!


Thank you so much for your visit today.... Hugs May x x x x

Hi May
I'v heard so much about ATC's but never quite know how to go about them, I would do mine in fabric, any clues as to where I get started?

Love the one on this post.
