Charmed ATC Swap

It's another ATC swap at the Charmed Craft Talk forum, hosted again by our lovely mod Petra. This time Petra had set the, very appropriate, theme of SPRING and I decided to join the gang. Inspired by the lovely weather I created three cards to swap with our forum members, each one different with one vintage and two more contemporary:

I used a mixture of Perfect Pearls, Embossing Enamel, and a little dimensional accent, along with various papers, beads, chipboard and ribbon - all from Charmed Cards & Crafts of course :-)

These small cards really are great fun both to make and to receive. They must be no larger than a playing card, in fact they have to be exactly that size, so it's quite challenging to make them interesting and worthy of a swap.

I hope you're managing to enjoy the sunshine a little, and none of you have been confined to dusty airports waiting for lift-off! It was quite funny to hear planes in the skies over London again and it made me realise how quiet it has been without them and how many really do fly above us. Just in time they got going again as I'm expecting another US delivery very soon ;-)

Thanks for coming to check out the Charmed corner of the web, it was G-R-E-A-T to see you here :-)

These are gorgeous Karen. Its a long time since I made any ATC's. Must think where I put my folder. I used to host ATC swaps and probably have a couple of hundred now.
