An Irish Spring~Punk ATC ...

Pin It


Happy Monday, Stampers ... hope your weekend was long and wonderful!

Today's ATC was created for the Artistic Outpost's March Referral Challenge. This month, the challenge is to create a "Spring-punk" project ... however you might interpret that. This is my Irish-inclined interpretation of AO's Spring-punk theme using the year stamp from the 'Paris Exposition' set and a word stamp from the 'French Flight' set.

This ATC also qualifies for several terrific blog challenges ... for a complete list, please refer to the bottom of this post. And for the down-low on all of the product I used, check out the ATC Ingredients, below.

Sooooooooo, this weekend the DH and I spent some time with Sheila and her DH.

As we were sitting chatting, a teensy disagreement blew up between Mr. & Mrs. Sheila:

"You're impossible." Sheila sputtered.

To which Mr. Sheila replied, "No; I'm next to impossible."

Give it a minute ...


Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!

~Hugs,
