ON the Design Collective. I have never been one for ATCs - in fact the first I ever made was for the Mad Hatters Tea Party CyberCrop on UKS earlier this year. As we had a theme to work too - A Royal Flush - it was really helpful for a newbie like me. I made my set of cards all alike as per the swap instructions (I made Queens). This time it is slightly different and I have had to use my own ideas along with Jane's tips in the class in this weeks issue - and am now well & truly hooked!! The examples on the DC Gallery are inspiring, so I do hope there are more trades.

It has rained all day today, so it was really a day for scrapping and crafty things!It did brighten up eventually and I went out for a walk at 8pm, the wind is rising & it is quite blustery and it looks like there is still more to come as it is still very overcast, except out to the west towards Ireland.The clouds loom, vast and sinister like enormous grey peaks rising out of the sea - seemingly mean & moody then suddenly a shaft of brightness and they are outlined in shining golden light lifting them to the realms of beauty whilst the Mountains of Mourne, ethereal and shimmery in the distance have their edges painted with gold. I hve come in feeling totally uplifted - in spite of the chill in the air.

When do we get to see those ATCs? It sounds like fun!
