 Hi Crafters,

I recently entered a swap on Facebook with the Gecko Galz Papercrafting Challenge Group. The theme for this ATC challenge was Gnomes and we were given several images to work with to create 3 ATC's to send to our partners.

Here is my set...

...and here they are individually

I used various techniques, stamping, texture paste, glass beads, heat embossing and inking around the edges. I added some die cut Sizzix mushrooms to complement the background images and the sign post and fence elements are from a Stamps with Me stamp set.

I received a fabulous set in return from my swap partner Carole Jones.

She even decorated the mini pocket letter sleeve that housed them. I have a way to go before I reach this standard but I really enjoyed participating in the swap and look forward to the next one.

I'd like to enter my ATC's into the challenge at Simon Says Stamp this week.

Well, that's it for today, see you again soon,
