Winter Vacation.......

....which in Melbourne is still 6 months away.  One of the Opus Gluei ladies is off on a cruise to avoid all the cold weather in the US at the moment, and here we are in Victoria, sweltering in yet another heat wave.  I hope the leaden skies overhead will drop some of their watery content right over my roses, but right now its just humid.  This is the day my air-conditioner has been waiting for - to convince me it was a necessary purchase.

So in spite of Deena reveling in summery warmth, I am dreaming of a cooler holiday, hence my ATCs to celebrate winter.  The first uses a new embossing folder and my almost forgotten Cuttlebug.

The image was a Christmas one I was going to use for decoupage, but seems to have been overlooked, and under the pearls are the embossed dots.

Then I got a little carried away, thinking I might crochet an ATC, but sanity re-surfaced and I compromised by crocheting a scarf instead.  Hate to think how long this little boy has sat waiting to be used.....

Now lets see what the other ladies have come up with for this challenge.

Love is in the air....

...and as Valentine's Day looms again, and the shops are full of red satin hearts and teddy bears with boxes of chocolates under their paws....its time for some romance.

Adding to my collection of ATCs are these two:

If you're feeling romantic, join in the 202nd challenge of the Opus Gluei team and show us how you feel.
