November ATCs - Christmas

These were my ATC swaps to take to our Saturday crafting group this month.  As per usual I'd left making mine until the last minute but during this past week I'd made a card with this cute Penny Black image for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and because he was just the right size for an ATC I stamped him out a few more times and coloured him in using Promarkers.  It's a lovely relaxing way to pass an evening, especially if there's a programme on which you just need to keep one eye on.  I'm really enjoying using my Promarkers at the moment.  Here's a close up of the little fellow.

The ticket message was a free download from Cuddly Buddly.  There is also a circular Christmas message included in this download.  Cuddly Buddly's downloadable images are worth checking out at the moment as they have quite a few free sets on offer.  Stampin' up Bashful Blue ink was used to sponge around both the ticket and the mouse image.

Little touches of glitter were added to the hat, ground and a couple of the punched snowflakes so that there was some sparkle and to finish it off a bow in Stampin' up Real Red was added.  Although I always keep putting off making the ATC swaps there is a nice satisfying feeling when you batch make and then set them all out in front of you when you've finished.  No more swaps for this year though as we all need to turn our attentions to Christmas card making.
