ATCs again

Another couple of cards for the Very Berry Handmade ATC swap.  I think I'm a bit obsessed and you might have to bear with me (or not) for a bit because I keep thinking of other ways to represent the theme of the swap, which is autumn.   I do have an excuse in that our car failed its MOT (the knell of financial doom for UK people) and I'm therefore on a fabric buying embargo.  These ATCs, at 2.5 x 3.5 inches, are fantastic for using up the tiniest of scraps - in this case Oakshott.

  1. Very clever! I am sure your recipient will love this. By the way, what does ATC stand for? I followed the link to the flickr pool but couldn't find it there either. Sorry - probably a dumb question.

  6. Catherine...Honestly, cars suck the lifeblood out of your wallet. Arrrgh! That being said, I adore your wine bottle and pumpkin ATC. Nothing makes me happier in the autumn than the sight of pumpkins. The sight of a glass of warming wine on a nippy day is not far behind on the happyometer! Happy Weekend from Maureen

  8. That's a great obsession. I had to stop myself at number 5. Was going to make one with European Rowan tree but had a feeling that it was a bit too many for one swap, so I put it away. Glad you made one with my favourite tree. :-) Sorry to hear about your car.
