This is an ATC I made for a 1-1 swap with Jan. Our theme was a really good one—“beehive”. I didn’t know if I wanted to do the hairdo or the bee home—so I did both. For the beehive, I used a stylus to emboss craft metal, tracing around clipart. The background is Tim Holtz stamps, except the bee which is from Stampin’ Up. The bit at the bottom is cut from a candy wrapper I’ve been hoarding for years. I got this wonderful honey candy at the flea market—just the one time—unfortunately, the vendor stopped carrying that candy. I had just enough wrapper to make two ATC’s (I made one for myself also).
****Edited to add: Sherry has won!**** Hey—how about we play a game? To the first person to post the name of the woman pictured on the atc I will send a little prize. (Except Paulette—smarty pants who won my last guessing game a few weeks ago!) If you’re a crafty person, I’ll send you something from my stash; if you’re not crafty, I’ll find some other fun little thing to send. I wish I could find the honey candy again, because that would be the perfect prize—oh well! You don't have to be an official blog follower, and I will gladly ship anywhere in the world.
