Hi all,
Been a bit busy so not managed much crafting this week!
We're off on holidays at the end of next week so I'm looking forward to that!
Thought I'd share some little ATCs with you today!

Firstly the ones I gave you a sneak peak of earlier, for the swap over at 
There's just about still time if you want to join in!
The theme was TV or Movies and she asked for 4 ATCs

Here's a closer look

Bart Simpson my DH's fav.
I decoupaged this image (found on a wallpaper sample) which I've had around for a while!
 I've had the film strip peel offs for ages too but just never  knew quite what to do with them till now!

Scoobydoo, My BIL's fav
I made up party inviitations for my BIL & SIL using this image from the internet 
they absolutely loved them so wanted to use it for this too!

Pink Panther, My SIL's fav!
Love his eyebrows!

Garfield I just love him!

Winnie & friends!

Thanks for looking, I hope you like them!
Hmmm wait a mo, did I count wrong???? lol!!!

Secondly the October swaps for Cardmaking Downloads Forum
This months theme is recycled! 
I could have made loads on this theme but only needed three!

Here they are all ready to go in the envie to be posted off!
I tried to use as much recycled material as I could for these!
The base cards are a recycled birthday card from last year!

Here's a closer look

Crafting time, a recycled watch and the paper is the recycled insert from the card!

This is a recycled cycling map of our area.
 I wasn't sure about this one but my OH thought it was great so I decided to keep it in! 
We live top right as you look at it!
Used distress inks and whispers markers on it too!

Three little birds! 
Again recycled birthday card from last year and a foam circle from Easter Bunnies. 
Used chalks for the background and promarker for the shadow under the birds!

Took this pic just befoe I put them in the envie! 
Can I see a little something extra there?????

Calendar Girls

Hi all,
Just had to share with you what I was up to yesterday afternoon! 
We had a girlie day out, my Mum, sis and the nieces! 
I was working in the morning, helping out with exams but got off at 11.30 &
met the girls at a coffee shop then off for lunch at a local Italian Restaurant. 
Then Off we went to see

It was a fantastic show! 
We laughed and cried, laughed a bit more, cried a bit more etc etc etc!
 Definitely a must see if you can!!!

ATC swaps

Hi all, thought I'd share some ATCs with you today!

These are the ones I made for the forum swap over at
This months theme as I said earlier was
"Back to School!"

The graphics I used were from a clip art collection I purchased over at
The swap is run on a monthly basis and the deadline is the 15th of the month.

These are the awesome returns I got!

I think you'll agree they're all wonderful!!!
