ATC Swappers - August Swap

These are the ATCs I made for this months swap at ATC Swappers, which is SPORTING SUMMER.  If you want to enter the swap hop over to the blog and leave Paul a comment letting him know you want to swap some ATCs.  The ones I have received have been beautiful works of tiny art.  I am entering my August ATCs into

Just Inspirational Challenge Blog #8 - hobbies/entertainment/activities.

This week the sponsor is Lothian Crafts and the prize is a 'Flippin Bingo' stamp.  It is a lovely challenge and the DT do some beautiful work.  You really should hop over there and join in.  (I won challenge #7 and will hopefully be receiving my prize next week. It is the S.W.A.L.K 'little Princess' stamp.)
I hope JIC don't mind the cat it was an extra decoupage ATC for someone who missed the animal antics swap.  For the Sport ATCs I used the PNG images from Bugaboo Stamps and added them to a background paper from Creative Cottage.  I coloured them with Promarkers & Copics.

At first I made ATCs with a footballer and a rally car on them but realised it was Summer Sport and even though football seems to be an all year thing I didn't want to enter it for a Summer challenge and every time I see rally car racing it seems to be raining and muddy (typical British Summer I hear you say) but once again I didn't think of it as being a Summer sport so I went with Gymnastics, fishing, baseball and golf.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend, mine has already started as I am off work next week (doing a little dance now can you imagine it, it will give you nightmares if you can). HEEHEE.  Happy Crafting.  :-) xx
