Shabby/Chic ATC

Afternoon lovely Crafters. Do you think we will ever have some nice Spring weather or will it rain forever!!!!!! I was hoping that the beautiful sunshine of yesterday would last but May has started with grey skies and more rain.

It's good for crafting though and with the new month brings a new theme for the ATC swap over at The Stampman. This time Janet is asking for yet more Shabby Chic. If you are interested all the details can be found HERE.

I still struggle with ATC's . I'm too used to having lots of space to play doing 12x12 scrapbook layouts but did manage to come up with something I was remotely happy with for my DT project.

I need to get more practise in ready for the ATC  swap on WOYWW!!!! Speaking of which, I will see you all tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Lisa. What a beautiful tag. I just adore the butterfly. I'm pleased to report that the Sun is shining here, it
makes everything feel fine and dandy.

Love the pinks and greens together Lisa, and what a wonderful shabby-chic ATC design. I know what you mean about working with a small area of card, but you've included lots of fabulous detail on this perfect little piece of eye-candy!
See you soon - Sylvia xx

It is beautiful, Lisa very delicate & perfect mix of colour.
I wish it would stop raining too, but unfortunately we really need lots more yet.

Hi Lisa, very shabby-chic and very feminine. Love the pink and green on my favourite stamps,

Hi Lisa
You seem to be on a roll at the moment. I love this ATC and the card in your last post is equally gorgeous (you are right - you can never have too many butterflies!) I also adore your seaside scene and that impression obsession stamp is now on my wish list!

This is gorgeous...so pretty, feminine and delicate!! Beautiful work, as always.
Hope you are all ok and had a lovely weekend. Hopefully, May will bring us some sunshine...I think we all need that in our lives right now.
Take care my lovely friend...
Love Emma xx

Gorgeous ATC there my Lovely. Very pretty. The colours in the Flutterby are gorgeous.
I have only recently started ATCs and I love them! Looking forward to the WOYWW swap!!

It's beautiful - especially the ruffled ribbon and the flower.
Grotty here too today - will I ever get round to 'doing' my new garden I'm wondering.

Lovely ATC , Lisa. Even if it's so small, you made a wonderful piece.

Elizabeth said...

It's beautiful, Lisa. Love the muted pinks and the ribbon detail. Sorry you are suffering so much rain, particularly when we are enjoying quite nice weather in this little corner of Scotland ... we are even having to water the plants in pots regularly as we've had no rain for days ... now I've said that it will probably pour tomorrow :) Elizabeth x

I know what you mean about struggling with ATC size Lisa. I'm the same and prefer tags ....... the big ones, lol! You've done a lovely job on this one though and your shabby chic look is perfect,
