I have finally returned to making ATC's - it seemed that my groups had somehow gotten away from these for awhile. I joined the monthly round of themed ATC's through a Wisconsin group - this month's theme was "Farm Fresh" - Door County Cherries was my contribution:
Another group is doing monthly swaps of techniques. The following are my ATC's for "A" and "B" - looks like we will be swapping through 2013! Thanks to my stamping friend Carol S. from WA for organizing this. Her blog is awesome and inspiring.
"B" for brayered background with rubber bands, blue, blossoms and bling:
These are the cards I made for the "Cards for Troops" project for May. Each month, besides general BD, TY, etc., we are asked to send special seasonal cards such as 4th of July. I really enjoy making these each month - Usually around 30 0r so cards which are sent to a central location and then forwarded to troops stationed around the world for their use. Thanks to my stamping buddy Jan of Redrubberink for linking me up to this project. Of course, it's also a reason to add to my stash!!!!!
