MONTHLY ATC CHALLENGE APRIL





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 !

  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
