In the Mood for more ATC's

Lately, I have been in the mood to create ATC's. They are quick and easy little works of art. I have several more ATC's in the various stages of completion, but not quite finished. I will share those with all of you as I finish them up. Today, I am sharing 2 of my creations with you.

First a simple ATC...using polished stone background that I created, collaged papers and image, and then to finish, I rubber stamped Fly Away.

The other ATC I created was a little more work as I had to do some cutting for this folded ATC.

I had fun creating these, and I hope you enjoyed my creations.

I don't care for air conditioning in the bedroom, and so at night I have the windows open and have the ceiling fan on. I have day lilies growing under one of the bedroom windows, and the sweet fragrance that comes in with the night breezes is heavenly. The lily stalks are over 5 feet high. The stalks are loaded with buds and blossoms.

Love your ATCs, especially the folded one. The lilies are beautiful.
