A card at Last !

I finally got around to making a card yesterday, I have been a little side tracked by the atc making which I love at the moment more that making cards lol. Any how I needed to make a start on the thank you cards for the teachers at my children's schools, this is going to be a long task as there are so many and my youngest is leaving his nursery to start big school, so there are lots of thank you's that need to me made!

I also made 2 atc's yesterday using some lovely images again combined with stuff from my stash. I am now on the hunt for back gounds and other things to add to vintage images. I remembered my parents have some really old postcards in their cuboard from all over the world, they were given them by a friend whose mum passed away, this was when I was a child so some 2o years ago so they may well come in handy. I remember they were beautiful colours and spent time looking throught them so I am excited to see what may be in that box! There were some unusual stamps too. Will post later what I find!

Have a lovely Thursday all!
