TWELVE, almost ready

If you read my last post, then you will know already that I signed up for ArtJoyStuff's Fabric of Nature ATC swap. I got myself organised because I thought I would take all the bits and pieces to France with me to work on them there, but....... once I had done one, just to see what the ATC would be like, I couldn't stop! I had three slightly different designs planned, and I wanted to see three ATCs done so that I wouldn't forget by the time we got to France. So I made three. And then I thought, oh what the heck, might as well make them all. So I did. I can't believe I have done all twelve already, except for the backs that is. The backs I will have to do today and then I can send them all off to the wonderful swap hostess, Kimberly.

Here are the three different designs -

Big thank you to my dear friend Alexandra, who gifted me with these beautiful bird images. And another big thank you to Vicki for making the gorgeous shabby chic nest I used to photograph the ATCs on.

Gotta go and get on with this week's challenges now, I forgot all about them because my head was filled with ATCs, lol.

I am linking this post to Becky's Blissful Whites Wednesday party over at the TIMEWASHED blog. Aaah, such a beautiful blog, go have a look at all the other links as well, if you have a few mins to spare.

Looks like you have been on a roll Liz - how lucky! It is so much fun when we get a chance to work like that.
They are all so simply gorgeous - each one! Love the little bits of scrim and beading which create so much softness with the white background and laces. Perfect partners for Vicki's nest too!
See you at Becky's blog too!
