Here's a little ATC for the TMTA challenge this week; the theme is LOVERS. My background was taken from an antique French book and colored with Colorbox ink pads. The lace and buttons are also vintage. Have fun looking at all the entries here!

"Something Blue"

This past week the challenge theme at Mixed Media Monday was "Something Blue" and, technically, I'm sort of still on time--it's Sunday evening here, although a new challenge has already been posted for tomorrow, (Monday), which is "today" in other parts of the world! Anyway, here's a little ATC.

Kard Krazy's Tuesday Challenge #58!

I thought I was coming in on the tail end of this challenge, too, but then discovered that this challenge lasts for 2 weeks--yay, I'm not late! The Kard Krazy challenge is to make a tag with your interpretation of the theme of "Summer" -- summer for me always brings back happy memories of going to the beach every week when I was growing up. My mom and her friends would all get together on Tuesdays, make big lunches, pack up the beach towels, umbrellas, blankets and air mattresses (yes, we rode the waves on THOSE old floppy things, believe it or not!) and they'd head for Santa Monica beach in southern California, (with all of us kids in tow, of course!) Those were fun, fun times. I also love summer because my roses are blooming then, and roses are among my most favorite flowers; I sort of combined both of those ideas in my tag. You can see all of the lovely tags for this challenge here!

What a wonderful gift our forefathers gave to us! And how courageous they and the people who fought for our freedom were! I love my country!!! (Photo courtesy of The Graphics Fairy)

TMTA-"Diamond Pattern"

I honestly don't know how everyone gets such beautiful art pieces created on the day the challenges are posted, but I just have so little time to work on things, and I'm always behind in the art department, it seems! This week the theme was to use a diamond pattern when creating your ATC--I started this last Monday and just finished it this afternoon. So, rather than put it away, I thought I'd post it and keep it out for a few days, even though a new TMTA challenge will be upon us very soon! The lovely image of the little girl is from Paper Whimsy and the diamond background paper is from Foofala.
