Whimsical ATC’s

Hi Everyone!,

It is my turn over on the Colourcraft Design Team Blog This weekend and I have made a trio of ATC’s using the Whimsical Summer Stamp Set by Rubber Dance.

I do like this stamp set a lot, it is versatile and the elements are small enough for ATC’s and a host of other potential projects ๐Ÿ™‚

Please head on over to the Colourcraft Blogย to see what I made ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great weekend
