Hello friends, and Happy Saturday!

Brrrr it’s a cold one today, currently 1.2 degrees Celsius as I am writing this post. My plan to be very productive today just didn’t happen – too cold!  Miss P has just popped out for her evening constitutional but I don’t think she will be lingering too long out there and will likely be knocking on the door very soon with cold paws.  Btw my Christmas Cactus is flowering a little early again this year…

today’s art . . .

Today I am sharing this little set of Christmas inspired ATCs with a couple of challenges.  This is my Day 27 offering for Art Every Day Month. All links are at the end of the post.

Can you guess what they are made of?

The words are stamped on white card using a teal Versafine Clair ink and the Winter set of stamps from Alison Bomber, but what are those backgrounds?

Yes it’s more fabric!  I bet you were wondering after all that Halloween fabric last month, if I owned any Christmas fabric, well yes I do!  LOL  I adhered the fabric pieces onto some ATC bases cut from an amazon box, and once they were dry I added lots of dots to the existing design and enhanced some other features like the green ribbons with some acrylic paint pens.  I made some unwanted elements from the fabric disappear using a black paint pen.  These are regular 3.5 x 2.5 ATCs, and I am thinking I might use them as gift tags on some gifts, we’ll see how the rest of the Christmas making goes, might not need them and then I can keep them for myself!

    PS Around here, they call those gorgeous flowers Thanksgiving cactus’. Mine are blooming a hot pink right now, with others in bud. Sadly they are in the garage, because Biskit will eat any plant and has gotten herself on death’s door this summer doing just that.

    Wow, that fabric worked great for ATCs. You find the very best fabric to use in your journals and art. SO cute and clever. Lovely Christmas cactus blooming a bit early, which will give you lots of cheer right up to the big day.

    First of all I want to say no, I didn’t know about the stray photos. They were way down, weren’t they Thanks Elle for pointing them out to me. I also love the holiday ATC’s. That fabric is bright and cheery and festive. It works well for art projects. We are cold today too. Hope it warms up and your Christmas cactus, although early, gives you lots of blooms. Hugs-Erika
