I thought I'd post early this month
to brighten up the dark days we've had -
real April showers !

My ATC for April was inspired
by pretty blossom, 
 the soft green leaf shoots bursting into life in my garden 
and watching the birds collecting for their nests.
I saw one bird fly away with a petal from my cherry blossom !

One year we found an abandond Goldfinch nest
which was beautifully made and lined with soft seed heads.
I have a winter Clematis which gives soft fluffy seed heads 
which I've seen birds collecting.

My calendar ATCs are following a theme
of soft chalk background,
light stamping,
 adding something found  
and something from nature.

They are inspired by what I see in my garden.   

Here are the wonderful ACT's made for March.
Thank you all.
Why not join us by making an ATC claender...
it's not too late !


  1. Beautiful ATC Penny - love the soft colours. Pouring down here as I type...:(
    Love all the March tags too.
    Hugs xx

  2. Great ATC Penny! So glad you posted can find mine here:

  3. I'm a few days late but it's still April at least!

    Your ATC is really lovely, Penny. The green colour zings - and remind me of fresh new grass. Ours is looking very lush right now, especially after all the rain we've been having. And still we have a hose pipe ban!!
    I like the theme that you are following for your collection, they'll all look wonderful together at the end of the year.

    My ATC is here

    Thank you for hosting!


  4. Your ATC has such a soft feel to it, and brings nature up close.

    My Apr piece is here:

    In fact, I have finished up to Jun :)


  5. Just wanted to say the the ATCs are all so beautiful. Thank you for visiting my blog today too. x
