August ATC's

I am really getting withdrawal symptoms!!
I have now been away from my craftroom in India for two months! 
My 'makes' are defined by what little I have to hand at the moment...

Anyway the theme for August's ATC UK Swap was
'At the bottom of my Garden'

I live in an apartment in India so have no garden - just a balcony...
so I 'borrowed' the garden from the National Trust property at Ickworth.
My daughter and I were amazed by the fantastic stumpery - which to us seemed pretty eerie...

My ATC's were each made by matting a trimmed photo taken at Ickworth
 onto a 2.5 by 3.5 in rectangle of DP from my UK mini-stash.

I then added a butterfly sticker from the NT shop.


I am going to link this to A Step in the Darkness - Anything Goes - I think this is a little bit dark!

This next one was of some of the beautiful baby cyclamens blooming everywhere! I will link this to

I love all the wild flower meadows that have been cultivated in recent years - this is within the walled garden at Ickwork - beautiful!!
 To this ATC I added some decorated paperclips which I think came from Tesco!!

I am always really pleased when my ATC's arrive at the swap -
 Sue always displays them beautifully!

Happy Crafting!!
