My Summer ATC card

Projects #6-23

My craft group, Crafty Enablers, did an ATC swap with a "Summer" theme. Here's what I came up with:

18 cards. Way more work than I thought it would be! I cut, I inked, I stamped, I fussy cut, I paper-pieced, I printed and inked some more, I glued and then I stitched! Whew!

And since these each took longer than my normal greeting cards I decided to count each one in my 100 Projects Challenge (even though the other participants decided 3 ATCs would equal 1 project). They took a LOT of work so that's what I'm doing! : )

I used this wonderful sun stamp from Unity's A Pocket Full of... set and pieced it with two different papers. 

 Added some I-Rock bling:
Printed out the sentiment (which I found while going through one of my old crafty mags) on my Dymo label maker and inked it in yellow.

And I FINALLY broke out my Sew Easy tool. It was seriously still in the package. Just sitting there all lonely and unused. And now it's finally fulfilled its destiny!

I am loving getting everyone else's cards! I will post a photo when they all finally get here.

I am in love! These are sooooo fabulous (and I can't believe you made so many--you deserve to count them as cards). Love the stitching,'re inspiring me to break out my unloved Sew Easy. :)
