Chunky ATC




Not too long ago my son was admiring some of my Chunky ATC's and told me I should make him one.  As his birthday is this weekend (he's turning 25), I thought I'd make him one incorporating a quote he recently expressed that he liked.   What he actually told me was that he wanted a "set" of these, but all I had in me was one:)  I robbed the workroom of a few of its treasures to incorporate into this one.

I've made 3 chunky ATCs in the past several months, but none had a lot of 'hardware' on them. I really like the embellishments you've chosen. Beautiful work, Louise.

Oh my gosh!! LOVE IT, Louise!! And that quote is great, too. Sure hope the birthday boy is properly appreciative. Thanks for sharing and showing me something I'd never seen before. Guess I need to get out in the art world a bit more than I have lately.
