Till I dream deep ATC


We've had some truely atrocious weather here in the Scottish Borders. Gale force winds and buckets full of rain. All our hanging baskets and pots are safely in the garage so they won't be damaged but it's so sad to see everything in the garden being battered down! We've even lost some branches from the trees. There is still more bad weather on the way so we're leaving everything in the garage for the moment and the house looks really bare without all that decoration.

So as there are no outdoor flowers to show, I'm treating you to an ATC I made with my last Alpha Stamps kit that was totally dedicated to Gardens and Flowers.


The background of the ATC is one of my fabric - paper collages and on top there is a purple flower image from Alpha Stamps Tallulah's Flowers collage sheet. The lady comes from Alpha Stamps Women & Flowers sheet. The butterfly is also available from Alpha Stamps as is the lovely green ribbon I've used to bind the edges of the ATC. The final touch was the vintage text and the beading.

I am always amazed at the amount of beauty you can create in a small space!

This is so beautiful! Remarkably, we are having the same weather as you in Scotland, here in FL and your lovely ATC is a welcome respite : )

The Blogger problem has to do with Chinese Spammers apparently and they are working on it. Strangely enough it looked like I could publish Peggy's comment i.e. I did not get an error message but neither did it publish to this post. With Lenna's comment I kept getting the error code. Let's hope they sort it out shortly and apologies to Lenna and Peggy for not being able to publish their comments directly.

And now it looks like Peggy's comment has been published, directly. The mystery deepens!
