I am back again, and I am loving spending every morning with you! Thinking I will make a habit of this!
For those of you who are crafters, you know that most of us are starting to think about getting started (if we haven't already) making our Christmas Cards and Tags. I haven't quite gotten there, however as we begin to move that way I thought it would be the perfect time to share with you my December ATC from last Christmas because I am behind. I am thrilled how this turned out.
Most of the time I usually have an image or a die that I really want to use, and then I build the card or ATC around it, however this time I did it different and had the paper that I wanted to use. The papers for these ATCs are scraps that I had from a past project and I really wanted to use them. Once I had created the backgrounds the I played with my cricut machine (which I don't do often enough), and am loving this cute little guy that I cut out.
Here's the front of the view of the ATC...
