|I have been swapping lots on swapbot, and loving my time over there!!!!! Here are some of the ATC's I have received. I will get my act together and post some of the ones I have made too... one day LOL|
|These 3 are from the Scrubs (tv) swap. 2 are gifts and one is the actual swap item. I love them. They are from Bree|
|These two ATC's are from Kerre for the vinatge atc swap. I am not sure what the gold spots are, but they are really cool!|
|These two Atc's are for the same swap as the above, and they are created by Joanna. They are just awesome! I love the crackle technique used. I really love these!|
|This was from Georgina for the tongue twister atc. It is pretty cool, and hard to say :D|

Well it was World Card Making Day on Saturday and we celebrated over at Allcraftz. Fabulous day with lots of fun and games, prizes and even POPS lol.
I only managed to make 3 cards, but considering the boy actually made it home early for once, and we spend the whole of Sunday gardening and playing out and about, I think 3 was a pretty good effort. The Happy birthday one and the 'Genuine' one were challenges set by Megan, the Bird one was a self designed card... Obviously as it is quiet plain LOL.
This note pad I made for MrsRankin over at Swapbot. I sent it a couple of weeks ago, but she has been away so I am not sure if she has received it or not.. I sure hope so! I am loving swapbot. Have been in tons of ATC swaps. Counted all the atc's I have made (I keep a register) so far over 152 LOL Isn't that mad?? I am hooked they are great fun.

I am in a COTWA swap with AngelATC's and the girls have been really wrapped about my atc, so I thought I would share it here. I wrote the instructions out for them so will share that too. It is 100% Tim Holtz product. I love Timmy! I would love it if he came to Australia!!!!! I'd even billet him LOL.. But it wouldn't be a fair trade as I would raid his stash lol.
It is done in distressing embossing powders so it feels
really rough and textured. Anyhow here is said ATC and instructions....
1. inked my 'time' stamp in milled lavender and stamped where I wanted
2. inked my 'corner' stamp (from same set as above) in china blue and stamped where I wanted
3. inked my Mona/paris atc stamp in soot ink and stamped where I wanted
4. Tipped on soot distressing powder (shake first ;)) and then heat well with a heat gun. let cool
5. rub your finger all over the embossing to release the special crystals
6. inked around the edge roughly with Brushed Corduroy ink.
All inks mentioned are the Tim Holtz Distressing inks :)
