Okay, I just completed my very first ATC and I think I'm in love! Can't explain it but it seems my 'canvases' keep getting smaller and smaller. I started out as a scrapbooker then made the inevitable transition to cardmaking. I loved card making because it was a quicker process and because it was so satisfying to give to someone. Then, once I became an avid T!m follower I naturally started making tags and loved it. And today, an ATC that took nearly no time to make and I just love the result. Of course, I do find myself putting my tags as embellies on cards and I figure that is where some of my future ATCs will end up. As a matter of fact, was just looking at a scrapbook page done a few months ago: noticed that I had used a tag and put it on the front of a card, and not knowing what to do with the card, ended up cutting the front of the card and slapping it on a scrapbook page. You can see it here. Too funny..........
On another note: I picked the colors for this ATC based on the Basic Grey Challenge Blog's challenge to use Pearls. I knew I only had sage colored pearls so I used that as my color scheme. Only prob was that I couldn't locate the pearls in my craft room once I was ready to add them. Finally found them today, and in time to still enter the challenge, woo hoo!
