Tilda and friends ATC and Arty Girlz bookmark

There is a fabulous new challenge over at Tilda and friends ATC challenge

The theme is new stuff! I decided to use this sweet new stamp that was sent in my Guest DT package from Sugar Nellie. It is the perfect size to fit on an ATC!
ATCs are perfect for adding to cards as toppers or, as I decided to do, other projects!
I decided to make my ATC into a bookmark and am thrilled with the result. I am keeping this one for me but will definitely be making more to give away! Now I can enter it into the Arty Girlz challenge which was to make something other than a card!

The great thing about ATCs is they can be made with scraps and they are so quick. Then they can be kept until you need to make something in a hurry! This often happens to me although my New Years resolution is to be more organised this year!
Supplies: DP:Basic Grey 'offbeat'
Stamps ~ Sugar Nellie 'Wish', Studio G sentiment
Other ~ brown cardstock, staples, ribbon and watercolour paints
Just before Christmas a delicious parcel of goodies arrived from my Secret Sister from our SBS4 group. I can't tell you how thrilled I was with all my pressies!
Thank you Secret Sister, I love them all!

I was honoured to receive this fabby award from super talented and sweet Carol.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate that you thought of me!

I am sorry that I never do these properly, I rarely pass these on as I always feel too bad about not picking everyone!

Have a great weekend and thanks so much for your visit!
