More ATCs

I made these ATCs this afternoon to send to those ladies who took part in the Crafts Beautiful Cross Stitch ATC swap this month. They are a bit of an eclectic mixture of styles and themes, but then that's me!!

Latest Makes

I've been whipping up quite a few makes for the Crafts Beautiful swaps and there have been a few birthdays this month too.  I was particularly pleased with the ice cream sundae, which is for the daughter of a friend and is the first time I've used acetate in a card too.  The cross stitch ATCs and the Easter themed ATCs are for this month's Crafts Beautiful swaps.

Jewellery Challenge - Easter Bonus

This is my entry to the Jewellery Challenge Easter Bonus challenge part 2, a corsage I made from beads and ribbons from the swaps that are doing the rounds on the Crafts Beautiful forum at the moment. Its amazing how inspiration strikes so quickly when you tip out a bag of goodies onto the work table, maybe I should work that way more often!

I have been dying to have a go with the DMC Desire wire for ages so I bought a reel but didn't really know what I was going to use it for, then it all came together and I used it for the stamens of the flower.
