Cards and ATC's.

I made a Flippin' Men card for my son's birthday and he was very appreciative of it. They are surprisingly easy to do..not too fiddly to cut out.


The next card is for one of my younger customers and actually covers 3 challenges. I was asked for a card for a 7 year old's gran. He wanted "Nannan" on the front, "Happy Mother's Day" on the insert and it had to be floral ('cos his nan likes flowers) but not girly. Well I started out well enough but it went all pear shaped...so I've put that card to one side and will look at it and decide what needs doing to it at a later date. So the result is a totally different card.


As it is a Mother's day card it covers the Lilli of the Valley challenge, My Time to Craft...which is Nature and A Spoonful of Sugar which asks for gems.

I've covered the card with a backing paper made by Sal from the Imag-e-nation forum, highlighted with some shimmery paint (similar to h2o's) and stamped 3 flowers (free with a magazine) and coloured them with the paints again..finally added some blue gems and the sentiment.
I Received my ATC's from the ATC Swappers that I took part in for the first time this month. The theme was "Countryside" Here are the one's I received. You can view all my ATC's sent and received by clicking on the link in the left hand sidebar which will take you to my Picasa albums. Thank you to Cazz, Mel, Becky and Val for the lovely ATC's Thank you also to Paul the host of ATC Swappers.
