Penny Black ATC Challenge



Hopefully, you aren't getting tired of my little Hot Diggity Dog dachshund, because here I am using it again! :)   This was created especially for the Penny Black ATC challenge this week. 

In case you don't already know, Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are miniature works of art the same size as baseball cards, 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches.  I've made lots of them in the past and participated in various swaps, but its been awhile.   As you'll see below, when I finished the ATC, I took it and created a greeting card using more of the same coordinating "Granola" designer papers by Basic Grey. 

Wrapping it up with more of my chocolate brown and white baker's twine and another one of Debbie's crocheted flowers.   What are the odds that I would have the perfect blue one?!  Had to use it!  :)

This morning is foggy and drizzly, but they say it's supposed to be sunny and 70's today.  That would be awesome and I really hope our weatherman is right.  If so, I'm going outside to clean off the flower gardens and soak up some sunshine!   

Wishing you sunshine in your world today!
