Happy Monday afternoon

Hi there,

I'm a bit late today with my post - I blame the clocks changing and the rain yesterday - we went shopping at the Florida mall - that place is HUGE!!! Not that we bought anything but we certainly walked our little socks off and did a fair bit of people watching.

Dinner was chicken and pasta at home, washed down with a couple of beers - perfect! Nothing on the TV so hubby watched sport (drag racing!) and I adjourned to finish my Kindle book.

Nett result? No crafting so nothing to post this morning! So, I got cracking this morning but fear my mojo must have gone to the beach today instead of waiting till tomorrow! These ATC's are not overly inspiring though I quite like the first one (my fave of the bunch), the rest? Not quite so happy with them - it's not like there's anything actually WRONG with them but ...... they don't float my boat! (pun intended!) check them out and judge for yourself .....

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Scraps of Kraft, black and DCWV card
  • Sentiment and dot line by Fiskars, inked in Ranger Archival jet black
  • Stampers Anonymous star image inked in Ranger Archival jet black
  • Martha Stewart edging punch used on the scrap across the top (because the original piece of Kraft wasn't QUITE big enough!!!)

Materials used:
  • ATC blank

  • Stampers Anonymous check image inked in Color Box silver stamped multiple times
  • Stampers Anonymous star image inked in Color Box white stamped multiple times
  • Recollections background oval inked in Versamagic ginger on to scrap of white card and cut out
  • Recollections train set inked in Memento rhubarb stalk on to scrap of white card and cut out

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • DCWV self adhesive blue linen texture card - one piece to cover entire ATC and another piece torn in to two strips before edging with Brilliance blue and Mediterranean blue - to simulate waves!
  • Recollections boat image inked twice, once in Brilliance Mediterranean blue and once in Memento rhubarb stalk and layered together
  • Crystal stickles to highlight
  • Yellow twinkling H2O for the sun and a blue Marvy le Plume marker to give shadow
