Another new thing - ATCs

My daughter has got the ATC bug, big time and I have just found a swap blog. The plan is that each month my daughter and I will work together to produce 4 ATCs set by Ali on her blog http://alisatcswapstop.blogspot.com/. We'll then send them in for swaps. Because we joined very late this month Hannah hasn't had much of chance to get involved so these ATCs are mine (although she did help with the idea!). The photos used for these ATCs are photos I took for one of CJs photography courses, we were doing silhouettes and the weather wasn't great so I used some of the kids plastic safari animals and drew pretty sunset skies on the computer screen and then took these photos. For the ATCs I've just added a Lily of the Valley stamp and some distressing inks. It was good fun and I'm looking forward to next month's theme.

Paper Craft Planet

I signed up to a new web site / crafting community yesterday called Paper Craft Planet. I'm really impressed so far, I've already been inspired to join in the 3d Challenge 106 making a gift card envelope. http://papercraftplanet.net/2011/03/23/3d-challenge-106-gift-card-holder/

In fact, my daughter (aged 10) and I, did one each. Hers is for a clothes shop gift card where as mine is to hold letters for my daughter to take into school for her class teacher.

LOTV 40 card

I went to the Farnborough Make It craft show last week and loved it! I spent far too much money but bought some lovely things including this wonderful Lily of the Valley stamp. I also bought a Hougie board and used it to make this, my first stepper card. I'm really quite pleased with it. Of course I bought some extra ProMarkers whilst there and even some cases to put them in.
I'm entering this into the Passion for ProMarkers Week 89 Sugar Rush challenge at http://promarkerchallenge.blogspot.com/.
