Smile!!

I hope everyone is getting a little bit of spring this weekend. Right now it is snowing here....2-4cm forcasted for today and a little more tomorrow.....and Sunshine for Sat and Sun...hopefully that will take care of the snow. Enough of this weather talk..

I'm hoping this ATC will bring on a little smile and a feeling of Spring! I have not made very many ATC's....so I'm a little new at this small scale art. I had fun though and am participating on 2 challenges with little Tilda who is from Magnolia.

The first challenge is Tilda and Friends ATC Challenges This week the ATC has to have something to do with chocolate....either to eat or used on the ATC....so I used Chocolate Chip cardstock for the background.

The second challenge is to participate in Bea's 50,000 visitor celebration and blog candy. this challenge is to have pink on the project. Bea has a Fabulous blog called Megastamper...be sure to visit.

Recipe for this ATC

I used prismacolor pencils (OMS) and Twinkling h20's to deepen the shading.

Stamps - Magnolia Tilda

Paper - whisper white, chocolate chip, makin' memories, basic grey

Ink - versafine black, creamy caramel, old olive

Accessories - cord, bling, butterfly from dollarama, stickles, brad, charm

Thanks for looking and your wonderful comments!! I'm hoping to post again before Easter ...but if by some chance life gets in the way ......May you all have a Blessed and Happy Easter!!!

Beth Norman said...

Totally gorgeous, as always. You left me feeling better in your comments referring to my cards looking like "me." I guess you are right. Everyone has a sense of style, because I would recognize one of your cards right off, and now I realize that is not a bad thing. Funny how we see ourselves so differently, eh?
