Quirky Shopping ATC's

Another beautifully hot Summer's day. Hope you've all been out in your new bikini's sunning yourselves! No? me neither...the world is not ready for me in a bikini! Martians, perhaps but definitely not that! (shudder)
I aimed to finish the card I was doing yesterday, along with a couple of other things, but still no photo glue and a round trip of nearly forty miles for a £1.99 tube of glue really would add to my carbon-footprint! Hopefully, my on-line order should be here tomorrow!
We've spent most of the afternoon in the garden with John's Mum and Les, talking them out of going to Curry's to buy a new TV and to buy one on line instead. (A lot cheaper!) After a packet of Jaffa Cakes and two cups of tea, that's what we did! ...And talking about 'shopping' (were we?) I've made a few ATC's for the Quirky Forum Swap. "Shopping" Hmmm, okay, I know everyone will probably be doing shoes and clothes and pretty things, but shopping to me means a trip to Tesco's to buy Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, Nescafe Cappuccino, bananas, cat food, chocolate, oh and not forgetting the Radio Times and a Crafty Magazine! So...that's what I've done. Found some tiny pictures of said above, scanned them, cut them out and stuck them down using a glue stick. (Not keen on using a glue stick on cards) The backing papers were freebies, flowers, watering cans and gardening tools, but is well hidden.(I used them, because I like going shopping for gardening things too!)
I added a star (for bargains) a brad, for...well, like a clipboard thingy for your shopping list, and a heart because, I heart Crunchy Nut Cornflakes. I then added a few words like, crafts, chocolate, yum, shop, on line and a couple of arrows, which I coloured using my one and only permanent ProMarker!!! No good? I'm not sure either. One of the ATC's has a real till receipt...Kit-Kat's, Cat food and a Crafty mag clearly marked! I only need two for the Challenge...haven't decided which two yet. Maybe I'll make a couple of pretty ones as well!
It's not quite midnight yet, so before I go I'd love to say a big hello and welcome to three new followers! (((Wave))) First Shirley, Nannieflash who has some fantastic cards full of bling and all things shinny. Pop over and say hi! Elaine, over on Quixotic Cards and The Copic Colour Challenge Beautifully fantastic cards coloured (of course) with Copic pens, (hunt out the Web-Shop too, for some lovely charms!) And last but by no way least, Riet who has trillions of followers and a truly lovely blog filled with amazing cards., I don't think I've found a blog with so many comments! Please pop over and take a look. These blogs are just yummy, and full of ideas and inspiration!
Back tomorrow, with any luck, with some more Blog Awards and a couple of makes, one a very late Birthday Card for a forum buddy. (Sorry...no glue!)
