Flight of Fancy

Good Evening, All
This is a combined Card / ATC project.  








 
As I am still trying to not do too much I have been using materials I had already prepared rather than starting from scratch. For instance for my last couple of posts I used die cuts and ephemera that I had already earmarked for certain things. And other things were half prepared for projects I had planned. What I have here is a revamp of a similar idea from several months ago. I had used the clarity heart stamp and loved it as it just seemed to cry out to be used for things other than just a heart; I was seeing flowers and wings and windmill sails. (sorry, vivid imagination alert!) Around the same time I was using the clarity seahorse in different sizes and I should say that seahorses are one of my most favourite things ever. So there I was playing with my old favourite seahorses and new favourite hearts (more soon!)
I have returned but decided it is all too long so suffice to say I had some of these components to hand so I assembled them to make this card and ATC (First ever ATC yay!)

    1. Don't worry about it, Michelle I did not know for ages and I am ashamed that I just started using the acronym without thinking about others. Another new term I just learned on the Crafty Bloggers Network is "fat page" and that is a four inch by four inch working area (one example is my moonlight and roses post). If there is anything I can help with I will try or at least find out if Idon't know I think my email is on my profile but in case not it is veecass2@gmail.com and I am on facebook - veecassidy so you can always message me that way. Take care, feel better, Vee xx
