A Monday Threefer!

I don't know what's happening lately, I seem to have no time or inclination to play at the moment!  I think it's probably the start of the new football season and the beginning of the autumn tv schedules - even if I do craft on the floor in front of the TV!! It's too easy to sit on the sofa.

Anyhow, today I managed three challenges in one!  The EWV yahoo group set me off - for challenge 26 we're looking at polka dots and faces  - Lori our list mom has set us working from book 2 page 27 so I am using Wendy Vecchi stamps throughout.

This morning, Simon Says show an ATC which gave me my format and Hels' Sunday Stamper - "going to make you a star" gave me an accent.  So, whilst apologising for the photo - the flash is bouncing off the embossing - here is my Threefer ATC.

 I used wild honey and picket fence distress stains on the atc, stamped the polka dots in vintage photo (I think) and the stars - which are clear embossed - in rusty hinge. Stamped Mr Serious on a scrap of white card and used foam pads to fix him to the atc. The star brads are from my large stash of brads and found the feather in a bag of feathers (doh!) that just happen to have spots on.... and they moulted all over the carpet when I opened the bag...

Back to the TV.... thanks for looking!
