2nd set of recycled calendar ATC's

At last we bring you the final Calendar ATC's.... IF... there are only 1 or 2 of yours or even a 1/2 one as in Sharon's Dec 1 it's due to when I had probs with my 'puter...
some of them were unable to be saved...they were being wiped off in a clean up or a bug was trying to wipe them off.

The first set are from Sue Law and here is what she wrote about them.... For the Calendar ATC's I used sections of the cover of an Erte calendar for the backgrounds then used the summary pics on the back cover as the embellishments...I covered them with dimond glaze and then layered them onto some gold choccie wrappers from christmas choccies. The "style" was stamped using a custom stamp from Tanda on velum.

Thanks Sue x

Below we have Sheila who tells us on the back of each ATC where the Calendar was from...sorry Sheila your others were wiped off.
Those who were lucky enough to receive them know how you have a gift with Velum and stamping.

Thanks Sheila x

5th Jenny, I was lucky enough to get your valentine as one of my swaps

And finally we have mine... the background papers are all from Cosmo Cricket and the images are from an old calendar about ordinary women... I just loved it and wanted to use it some where Hence the Recycled calendar ATC challenge.
Hope that you like them too.
