Good morning to all my lovely crafty friends and  followers. Wednesday comes around so fast and  its another weekly challenge at Crafting by Designs and the theme this week is ATC's. Having never made an ATC before this was a bit of an adventure for me I did a bit of research on Pinterest and the Web re sizes and types of styles although our sponsor provided us with some fab vintage images so that decided my style.

We have a great sponsor this week


Prize: $15 credit to store

I have to say if you are into vintage images you will love this site. So here are my set of ATC's.  I have to say they came out a lot better than I thought they would.!!

ATC Recipe 

Lunagirl Victorian Wallpaper background images and Victorian Beauties images
Dies are Spellbinder Floral Oval and  Decorative Labels Eight.
Marianne flower leaf and  circle die 
Love embossing folder is Cuttlebug
Pinking scissors
Sentiment is LOTV Greetings Postmarks
Wooden Hearts Whitby Crafts
Card is Tim Holtz
Small pearl flowers The Hobby House
Charm ,twine ,lace bows, flower and pearls all from my stash 

Well it was certainly something different to try and I did enjoy making them. I hope you decide to have a go and make an ATC to enter into the challenge .

Enjoy your week whatever you have planned  Hugs Carole x

Oh, these are just wonderful Carole! I'm not surprised you enjoyed making them with the lovely images you got to play with. ATC's seemed all the rage but then disappeared, it's great to see their resurgence again.
I hope you're having a fantastic time in Florida. Debra x
