Recently, some of you may remember...I had sent my SIL in Loiusiana an ATC, and described to her what they were and how we trade, etc. Well, she had surprised me and sent me one back. Now I think she may be hooked...cause guess what showed up in the mail today? The last time I talked to her on the phone, she was making chicken and dumplings, and we got to talking about our recipies...so here is her take on the St. Patty's Day ATC!
Isn't this just great? How do you like that big pot with fire underneath??? LOLOL! I just love it!
Anyway, I decided I had to make her one and get it in the mail by tomorrow, even though it is Sunday...so it can be already in place to be picked up as early as possible to get to her house on time! Here is what I came up with. I hand cut the 2 shamrocks and glued and glittered the edges. Ran some self-sticky "diamonds" all around and up, and wrote "Magic in the air...". The shamrocks each have a round bauble that say LOVE and JOY in each one. I think she will love it...she is such a love and joy herself!!! It is interesting how ATC's just sort of form themselves (design wise), isn't it???
