Tags n' ATC Thursday!

Good Morning!

It is Tags n' ATC day over at My Paper Crafting today. The challenge this week is "Twine".   I have made my very first ATC.

What do you think?  I discovered that my wonderful Cameo Silhouette store sells ATC cards, so I bought them, cut up a cereal box and placed it on my mat, set the cutting for chipboard.  It said to turn my cutting blade to 9.  I had it cut twice which is why I think it cut a little rough, I wish I had spent more time sanding the edges before I started.

I have been studying Lisa Indy Mermaid's work.  When I go to her blog, I look at her work for a very long time to try to see exactly how she does it!  I hate commenting on her blog because her work takes my breath away it is so stunning and then I write something so banal, I sure she gets tired of reading how good she is, but it is hard to put into words how her art effects me.  So they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  Lisa, this is my first try at imitating you!

Anyway, now that I am done loving on Lisa...please stop by My Paper Crafting to see what the rest of the Design Team has created and then play along!  We have some great prizes this month.
