More fab pink ATC's

Hello to you all,
I hope that you all had a fabulous Christmas, today we bring you more Pink and Bling

4 fabulous Pink ATC's in aid of 'Breast Cancer Awareness' hand made by Sharon Ward
I remember when I wore stockings and had legs like that... wouldnt even dream of wearing a suspender belt now...I can remember I got my first one from Woolworths it was white with tiny pink roses on it... Sadly no more 'Woolies' ...the shop that introduced 'PICK N MIX' the first Woolworths in Jarrow where I was born was all dark wood and brass fittings very posh, we even had an 'ice cream parlour' in ours...does anyone else remember those days.
Thank you Sharon and yes I reckon we all have a little wild woman in us, lol.
Here is wishing everyone a wonderful 2009.

From Dottie and Chriss and dont forget Jaqi is running ATC queen Dottie's own blog you will find Dottie HERE thank you Jaqi...why not pop over and see what she has been getting up to!!

Octobers Breast Cancer Awareness ATC's AND Alexandra Burke

Here we have the start of our 'Pink' challenge for October Breast Cancer Awareness month.

These 4 ATC's are from Carol at Paper play HERE.

the flourishes on the top one are printed onto acetate and as you can see through to a lace and glitter Carols first play with this technique... who ever gets this is in for a treat.

the ATC above and below are made up of circles I have never seen this technique before very different.

This last one is layers of ribbon and cord topped once again with acetate

fastened together with a pink brad.

I asked for plenty of PINK for this challenge and you all came up trumps.... thank you.

Thank you for joining in with this challenge.

I thought I would share this fabulous Video with you so please sit back and enjoy as this young lady is one very talented singer.

Love Chriss. x

Denise's music ATC's

Thank you to the lovely Denise in South Africa for all 4 of these wonderful

Music ATC's. Loving the backgrounds especially the top one.

I can feel the movement in the 3rd one.

Plenty of inspiration in all 4 ATC's for everyone.

Notice our next ATC theme.

We will have 2 months in 1 because of this busy time of year....Dec 08/Jan 09 theme is to recycle any part of 2008 calendar...either use for the background or just add some of the numbers, date, a month etc just so long as we are still able to see it has been part of a calendar you can then use any other medium, images, bling etc that you wish.
Enjoy x

Wishing you all a housework free week. LOL
