Wednesday and downhill to the weekend

Morning readers

I've an ATC to share with you this morning - I made it whilst crafting (and chatting) with a pal and, sadly, some of the details didn't remain in my brain until I could write them down!!!

  • Snippet of 300gsm white card, cut to ATC size
  • StudioLight images (from SL341) stamped using Stampin' Up Sahara sand and gorgeous grape inks
  • Splatter peg stamp also inked in the same purple ink and Kaisercraft splatter (from "stains") in the Sahara sand ink
  • Once I got home I felt it needed something else so chose the Ranger Letter It "celebrate" sentiment (from "Birthday") stamped in Versafine Clair nocturne ink .. so it now reads "Celebrate LiFE"

Great ATC, card and love that picture it really is dramatic.

EXCELLENT NEWS that you rocked the watercoolers with that fab Windy Day card! Congrats mate.

Loving today's CAS card with the cool duck on the front.

And last (but certainly not least) . . . I LOVE your enhancement to the ATC you started at my place. The purple ink is Stampin' Up!'s GORGEOUS GRAPE!

Have a smashing day . . . hope the sky on this morning's walk was more favourable! xxx

The ATC is beautifully arty Kathy but my heart has been won by your hilarious duck! Where did you find him?! That photo is a bit moody isn't it and I'm not sure if it's a mood you want to get involved with!

I love your ATC card. Such a unique background. Thanks for playing along with us at PIP Challenges.

Looks like the flight was aborted! This one made me smile. Thanks for participating in our challenge.

I love your ATC Kathy and the splatters look great and the addition of the 'Celebrate' finishes it perfectly. I adore your cute and fun duck on the card with a super sentiment and coloured beautifully too. Congratulations also on being one of the Watercooler Rockers and love that photo you took which certainly has some drama with what looks like the rising sun...obviously a very early morning walk. x

Jane said...

Love it! That cheeky looking duck is so casual and fun and your card is a great use of the sketch. Oh and in my book a bird is definitely an animal. Thanks so much for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.
