Hi there and welcome to a soggy Thursday!

Hi everyone,

Yesterday was pretty much craft free so I was determined that today should be a bit different. Of course, nothing goes according to plan and it was one o'clock before I got the chance!

Hubby was at the dentist first thing, then I got a letter from my super duper neighbour, Sally, in the U.S. who informed me she now has a notebook and (more importantly) INTERNET so I (quick as a flash) decided to send her an e-mail so that she would see it when she woke up . . . then hubby was trying to decide what he wanted to do for his birthday in February. He's thinking "theatre break" and was looking at London, nice, New York, better, or Bristol (?!) - hmmmm - jury hasn't yet reached a conclusion on that but I'm suspicious that it might turn out to be Bristol! Hmm - ScrappyJacky has suggested BRIGHTON as there's a craft show!! I'm LOVING that idea but thinking my hubby might be just a smidge less keen!!! Wonder why ...

And THAT was the morning gone - are we STILL sure there are sixty WHOLE minutes in each hour?

Anyway, I was trawling some of my regular blog haunts and then Brenda from Bumblebees and Butterflies announced she was presenting the challenge over on MAWTT and the theme this week for challenge #81 is "DREAMS" and we are advised to interpret as we see fit . . .  I decided it was time to make an ATC as I've not made one since returning from Florida - and that was NOVEMBER!!!! - so, here it is! Fancy having a go yourself? Then follow the link above and check out the details - Good Luck

Materials used:
  • Kraft card ATC blank and a scrap of white card
  • Distress Inks in: Bundled Sage, Forest Moss, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Black Soot
  • Main image stamp by Crafty Individuals sentiment stamps by Inkadinkado and Dragon fly by Magenta
  • Other materials: Dye cut black fancy circle, 3/8" hole punch and various fibres, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Crystal stickles applied with a cotton bud, silicon glue

Beautiful ATC Kathy! I love the vintage look, and the stamped images are just perfect. Dreams, what a fab challenge!

And everyone knows that Bristol is the mecca of the theatrical elite! :) Im sure wherever you will go, you will have a fab time, and will also find some new stash somewhere? ;)
