New ATC's and some sewing

The Theme this month over at The Stamp Man ATC Swap is "Trees" I decided to make mine with birds and butterflies. They are done using the Tim Holtz Tree from the Christmas set. The leaves are done using the floral bush from TH Spring stamps. They are stamped using black Brilliance and distress inks. The birds and butterflies are from my napkin collections which are growing by leaps and bounds. I just love working with them.

Now yesterday I mentioned I was finishing up a sewing project. Here is the outcome. It is a baptism outfit for my little nephew in the states. I was waiting for final measurements which I got the other day. My Sister In Law wanted it to be made from her wedding gown and the dress he Mum had worn to her wedding(Her mum passed away shortly afterwards) Being that she had a boy that was a bit hard since her Mums dress was pink lace. I took the lace off the pink and used it to make the vest while the satin was from her train. The flower was from her dress and the bow tie from her veil and a bit of her Mums dress. The pearl buttons are from her Mums dress too. So what do you think?
Well that's about it for tonight. School tomorrow. thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
