Welcome to the start of another week

Hi folks,
Sorry to be so late to the Monday blog post party, what can I say? I simply FORGOT to schedule this post before I went to bed last night - oopsie!!!
I have a couple of ATC's to share today - I've been trying to use up off cuts of card so these MAY be eligible for entries over at Pixies Crafty Workshop - not sure if entries MUST be a card, will have to re-read the rules before entering!
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Off cut of white card cut to ATC size
  • Distress Ink in wild honey placed multiple times on the white off cut (for background) and then also used to ink up the Kaisercraft "triangles" image
  • Recollections "splatter" image stamped randomly using both Memento rosebuds ink and Color Box silver ink
  • Mini couture image partially stamped on to another off cut of white card using Versafine onyx black and then carefully coloured with alcohol markers(because we all know what normally happens when colouring with alcohol markers and versafine ink!)
  • Hampton Art sentiment stamped on to the base ATC using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Stardust stickles used to highlight the "belt" and larger text
  • Faux crystal gemstone added at "throat"

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Off cut of DCWV card from the Grandma's kids stack
  • Recollections "monster" image stamped on to white card using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Alcohol markers to colour
  • Hampton Art sentiment stamped on to white card and then cut out before mounting on to yet another off cut of card, this time a piece of DCWV metallic green card
  • Stardust stickles used to highlight image and larger text
Recently had occasion to visit Kissimmee Old Town - ever been? Wanna see?
This is how it looks as you approach. Fabulous day too, with a light breeze to make it PLEASANT
Quaint? The main street, full of all sorts of eclectic stores
Creepy? The HAUNTED mansion

Cute? The kids roller coasters

We were walking past this store and saw both Elvis AND Marilyn!! Had to take this as a pal is a big fan of Marilyn .... hope he appreciates this pic!
Have a great Monday
