Week #116 ATC's

Hi everyone hope you have had a great start to the week-end this week at OSCC the topic is ATC's these are little trading cards that many years ago was how Artists uded to sell their wares and now it's not much different only there is no excange of money.
This weeks Sponsors are Tiffany Doodles

This weeks hostess is me I don't make many ATC's but I really admire them they can be as easy or complexed as the maker wants them to be, I have chosen Anything Goes as it makes it a bit more relaxed for people who would like to try to make them without the stress of a theme. Please come along & have some fun, pick up tips & ideas, mine is Tiffany Doodle digi image matted onto a Nestie Die #10, black pearls 2 TH stamps.

No cards today

Just a little note to keep in touch with everyone and to say I have not got a card as yet to share with you all, "I have done my shoulder in" as they say the Dr says it's frozen which is a bit ironic seeing as everything else is thawing out haha but it has been a right pain if you'll pardon the pun. so I will be back soon with something to share but before I go has anyone been to One Stop Craft Craft to check it out it's a card for a child & it's lovely hostess this week is Chrissie, the Sponsors are Robyn's Fetish. Hope you all have a good week-end.
