Mailart Monday: Pressed for time!

The first weeks of november I was on holiday with my husband to Seville (and Andalucian region of Spain) which was amazing! I miss the wonderful food, weather and ambiance so much already. With a couple of posts scheduled I hope you didn't notice the absence. I have a bit of work to catch up to and also write a report of my trip and telling you about my fave spots there (found a heavenly stationery shop or two which I want to tell you about!) Hope to get it all done this year. Yeah scary thought, just a little over a month and we'll be in a new year already!

Anyway, even though I missed the sunshine (it was a sunny 23C there!) it felt good to be home and see my Meesha (a friend of ours was cat sitting) and do some crafts again. This fortnight's challenge at Stampotique with theme human with animal head, got me inspired to make the below ATC:


This ATC is an assembly completely made with leftover scraps and pieces from various projects.  The background and strips I wrote on were made with left over scraps from my halloween masterboard and this birthday card. I cut of the heads of one of the Rabbits I had colored in for use on the High Tea Party and assembled it on the body of Bowtie (which I turned into a Butterfly and have stamped and colored in a few times for various projects). I added some Distress Crayons in the background to highlight the background clock and called it done. The challenge is a fun one and even when pressed for time, ATC's are the perfect size to make something new out of the left over pieces on my desk. I'm also sending this one out to one of my partners for the ATC swap at Stampotique group, as the theme is circles.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
