Now on to HM&F CHALLENGE #101...
Our very own, and super funny, mega TALENTED Lori Barnett, wants to see you creating an ATC. 
(ATC's are also known as ARTIST'S TRADING CARDS).

If you are not familiar with ATCs, these are miniature works of art, approximate size of (2 ½ X 3 ½ inches), or, (63 mm X 89 mm), just small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media and usually traded or exchanged rather than sold. The sky is the limit in this fun art.

For this ATC challenge, we are proudly welcoming back our GREAT SPONSOR, Simon Says Stamp who will be offering one lucky YOU a $15 Gift Card to the wonderful Simon Says Stamp store! Sooo, if you want another chance to win a fabby prize, be sure to join us with this new challenge!!

Here is my ATC take:

STAMPS: Stampabilities, House-Mouse Designs, "Swiss Ribbon", HMLR1027
Paper: White, Maroon/Reddish CS, White CS, Black CS
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic, Gel Metallic Markers
Accessories: Spellbinders Dies, Satin Ribbon, MS Glitter & Mouse Charm

Now its YOUR turn to create an ATC and play along!! I cant wait to see what you will come up with!
