ATC's for February and March

Here are the finished ATC's that I made from the inside of the envelopes.
I had some beautiful old lace flowers that I picked up from one of those places that sell vintage stuff.
I don't know how old it is -that's not the issue because I thought it was so pretty.
I decided to add a postage stamp onto each one to keep in with the envelope theme.
My husband had an old stamp album that he no longer wanted which had lots of butterfly stamps in it as well as these pretty story figures.
I am quite pleased with the result.



I hadn't posted the February ones that I had received mainly because I was waiting for the last one to arrive.
The top one is from Carole---the one on the left is from Ann and the one on the right is from Annie.




As you can see the theme was for hearts and each one is so different but oh so pretty.

Hi Doreen, your envelope-themed ATCs are beautiful. If you ever want more stamps, I have lots that my mother collected over the years (actually, she didn't so much collect them, as just not throw them out).

Your envelope paper ATCs are delightful Doreen - I love the combination of lace motifs and stamps. The heart ones are pretty too.

I like very much how the *innards* turned out. The stamps play well with them.
Lovely hearts, too.
Spring is starting here...so the weather must be starting to turn there.

Who would ever guess these were the insides of envelopes! Great idea to carry on the theme with the stamps. They're all so pretty....and the ones you received are really pretty, too.
