OG. After a day with friends, making cards and eating and laughing and giving eachother advice on every topic under the sun, I had to keep going and raid the boxes for this challenge. Its all very well saving things to use, but eventually, you actually have to use them (Rosemary, this applies to you too). My 3 ATCs are my way of getting rid of some old, and recycling them into something new.
The cat is a mosaic from a postcard along with some cord from a parcel. Orange cord is so good you HAVE to save it, but maybe not forever. The oriental one has a piece of a wrapper from my chinese tea, another snippet of a postcard with tea-mugs, and a brad which just might have a tea leaf or two on it. The third uses my last piece of handmade gold paper from when I started making cards, oh-so-long-ago, along with an image that reminds me of my Mum's button jar, right down to the rusty lid.
And of COURSE the backgrounds are black; some things never change!!
