Spring ATC and GNPE Harrogate

This is a fun little ATC that I made in a similar way to my Easter Egg Card.

It opens up to reveal the little chick inside.

I stamped the Cracked Egg stamp onto Centura Pearl card using Archival black ink and coloured the chick inside with ProMarkers. Like the large card, a brad acts as a hinge. Once the egg was finished I stuck it onto a simple scene I'd created for it.

Stamps Used
Chick from the Remountable Chicks Set
Spring from the Remountable Seasons Set

We had a great time at the GNPE Harrogate on Sunday. It was lovely to catch up with Barbara, the Clarity team, and some crafty friends. I had my birthday money with me and I had fun spending it. I bought some Clarity stamps (of course!), Lili of the Valley stamps, Flowersoft, the IndigoBlu clock kit, 200 sheets of A3 card (that should keep me going for a while), some more PanPastels, and a few little bits and bobs. I also got lots of inspiration from all of the beautiful samples on display.

As always Barbara had a huge crowd at her stand watching the demonstrations. We saw Maria Simms making dresses for the new lady stamps with Angelina Fibres and gilding flakes. They looked fab and I shall definitely be having a go.

It still seems quite surreal seeing my cards on the Clarity stand and I couldn't resist photographing them. 

I also had to get a photo of this board for Hubby - his melting snowman was there too. He didn't believe me when I told him that Barbara said people were asking her for the melting snowman stamp!

There was entertainment too - Barbara and Carol on the karaoke! What more could you want in a day out?



  1. Fabby ATC Lynne and looks like you had a great time in Harrogate . Was great to see your cards on the stand too and hubby's melting snowman bet he was secretly chuffed

  2. Lynne, thank you so much for mentioning and photographing me. I didn't even know that you were in the vacinity!!! It was so good to see you and also to admire your cards in the "flesh" so to speak. Looking forward to seeing what you do next.xx
