The last ATC I want to show you today is one that I've made for a monthly draw in one of my online groups. Each month there is a draw for ATCs, the winner takes all the ATCs that have been entered that month and chooses the theme for the following month - this month it's "Pigs" and as I do like pigs (I absolutely loved the mother pig with all her squeaking little baby piggies in the Woodentops when I was a child - anyone remember them?) and I remembered I had a 'pig' stamp lurking somewhere, I just had to make one. So this is my entry for this month - won't know till the end of the month who is the winner - but it would be rather nice to have a collection of 'pig' cards:-
And what's this fearsome creature with the sharp fangs and gaping mouth ..... is it a monster or is it a devil? No .... it's Mia, leaping up and attacking the strap of my camera! (What a good game that was)!
Hopefully, I'll be able to get a bit more crafting done over the weekend, one or two different projects I'm starting on, plus slowly adding some more pages to my art journal. Might be time to run another challenge/swap on the blog too - if anyone fancies it and enough people are interested in joining in. ATCs - or something different ...... what do you think?
