TMTA Monday



This week, the challenge over at TMTA is to make an ATC featuring something made of stone. The background photo on my ATC is part of a stone grave marker that I found one day while strolling through Dry Creek Cemetery in Eagle, Idaho. I was looking at the picture and noticing that some of the fingers on one hand were chipped and broken; since the hands were clasped, symbolizing some kind of relationship, whether it be of friends or lovers, I thought of the caption "broken promises" and added that to the card. This was a fun card to make!

You ask if I took the picture of the butterfly I had posted on my blog...I wish. Isn't it just fabulous? It came to me in an email. I take advantage of any super pictures I can.

Have a great day

Great card! Love the hands and the title.

Hi Jann,

This is soooooooo amazing!!! I am so serious...it looks like the hands are projecting outward in a 3D type form.

How did you do that???

Love,
Jeannene
