Time for some ATCs ..........

Happy Tuesday .......

Hope you all had a good weekend.   
Things are calming down a little in the old craft room this week .... well, for a couple of days anyway.  I've managed to sweep all the glitter away, left over from last week's Christmas fest!!!

It's time for another blog challenge ...... the Happy Little Stampers ATC Challenge for October gets underway this evening,  and the theme this month is .....


We did quite a bit of travelling whilst on holiday recently.  We flew to Italy, Venice to be exact, crossed the Slovenian border a few times, spent some time in Slovenia, stayed in Croatia for the week on the Opatija Riviera, before travelling back to Venice, to fly home to the Isle of Man!  That's it now for this year .... holidays are over (sigh!).  Except ..... a short trip over to the UK in a few weeks time to catch up with family and friends and to attend the HLS Retreat ..... I can't wait!!!  The only thing is we're going across on the ferry ...... might turn out to be not the best decision we've made!!!

Anyhow ....... my ATC's for you this month feature a way of travelling ..... by hot air balloon.  Something I've never done but it is on my wish list!

Another set of three ....... all backgrounds coloured using Distress Inks ..... shades of blue with a little touch of pink in there ......

and each one stamped with one of the stamps from an IndigoBlu set called Grand Tour III

The balloons are a set of three, from Clarity Stamps, and each balloon has been stamped directly onto the ATC first, and then again onto white cardstock and coloured using ZIG Markers.

Each balloon has then been fussy cut and attached to the ATC over the original stamped image.

Each ATC has been finished off with a sentiment ...... which has been stamped and then heat embossed.

As with all the HLS Challenges ...... there's a $20 Gift Certificate to spend in the store for the winner.

Why not join in the fun ..... this month's winner could be you!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
I've been busy in the craft room all day ........ another job on the To Do list all done!

This little lot will be going in the post tomorrow ........ ready for the TV next week.  Watch this space for more details.

Cheerio until next time ......


  1. fun atc's. Love the colors of your balloons
