I have been creative...

On the crafting forum I belong to we have been running a 'train of thought' Atc swap.
Where we are sent an ATC from the person ahead of us and we have to take inspiration from it.
the one below was sent to me from Caro.

I took inspiration from the french words meaning air mail and the butterfly.

No surprise for people who know me well, butterflies are a favourite of mine, so I used the french word for butterfly 'papillon' and made the ATC below.

This is the front.

Looking at it now, I have noticed it needs some kind of colour added to the edges, so I think a little bit of inking is in order... just hope i dont mess it up now!

The butterflies on the front were heat embossed using a bright pink powder, I think it makes them stand out really well. I haven't done heat embossing for a while so it was nice to have a play while I had all the things out.

And then below is how it looks on the inside. I wanted to make this into something quite different so I have added an atc into the swap that opens up. I look forward to seeing how the next person takes inspiration from this.

This is the only crafting I have done today!Unusual for me though I know!

I have great news that I have a further order for another bracelet and gift box/tin. So I am very pleased to be doing another order.
