Nickie's Contribution!

Here is Nickie's contribution to this month's dare for 'miniature houses'. Just love what she has created. Sorry I got it up so late, Nickie actually did it a while ago but I went away in the School Holidays etc.

Have some awesome ATC's in the gallery for this month's dare already, keep them coming girls, this is a fun topic. Also if you haven't already, remember to check out the forum for our latest ATC swap, not sure if there are any spaces left but the theme this month is 'Black & White'. These swaps are a great way to get your ATC collection really built up.

New Contributions!

Lianne finished her second contribution last night and so did Kryshina.

Here is Lianne's:

She has stamped the background with one of the new Prima Brick Wall Clear Stamps, stamped the house with one of the new Hero Arts Wood Grain Rubber Stamps & Collections Chipboard Bird. Isn't it adorable?

Here is Kryshina's:

Kryshina has used some of the new patterned papers from Webster's Pages & Prima plus some ink and bling.
How cute is this little birdhouse?

House Contributions!

Lianne and I had loads of fun creating these ATC's. Lianne has another one in the works that I should be able to post tomorrow. I have a couple more ideas in store also, we share these over the next few days.

Nickie and Kryshina are also currently working on theirs too.

Here is Lianne's Take using fabric and stitching:

Here is my take, tried to get a vintage feel with this one, the wings were added for something random, absolutely no meaning at

Embossed background, painted frame & window, cut out paper and images, german scrap,brad.

ATC Dare #7 - Miniture Houses

Well, girls the next dare is quite a simple one really but so many ideas and options can go with this theme. My mind is filled and already I can see me wanting to make more than one!

I have called this dare 'Miniture Houses' solely because ATC's are small so don't read anything more into it, the theme is basically Houses. So anything you can think of to do with this, go for it, its wide open!

Now also remember to think outside the square literally, maybe your card will be a house shape? Maybe it will host a little cottage, maybe a bird house, maybe something modern. Whatever you want as long as it resembles some type of house is fine by me.

Now I'm making my sample tonight and will be posting it up here tomorrow, we will post the contributors ATC's also as soon as they come in.

Once again its simple. Upload your ATC to the correct folder in the gallery HERE (making sure you sign up as a member first if you haven't already) I will make the appropriate folder. There will also be a thread in the FORUM also if you want to talk about it or have any questions. Otherwise simply email me at

On both Forum and Gallery simply scroll down to find the ATC's threads.

You have until Sunday 10th May to get your ATC's in so that leaves you around 3 weeks.

Good luck everyone and looking forward to seeing those entries!

thanks, Lisa
