Week 23 - The Craft Barn Challenge

Where do the weeks fly away too? Here we are at week 23 already with the letter Q.

Way back in June I bought  a set of feather stamps at the Craft Barn Extravaganza and just haven't had time to use them. What better time to start than this this week for my chosen word "Quill". The background Kaisercraft diamond stamp only dropped through my letter box on the morning that I made my atc. I've been trying to use a virgin stamp from my collection each week on my Alpha trading card. Technically this time I used two but maybe using a stamp that just arrived doesn't really count as part of a "collection".

A very simple atc this week -

Week 22 - The Craft Barn Challenge

Skidding in by the seat of my pants again and I have no idea why, as I knew what stamp I would use as soon as this week's letter was published - the letter N. I bought this stamp at least three years ago. One of those impulse buys on Ebay and then didn't know what to do with her! So at long last she has been exposed!
