ATC Turnabouts for Challenge # HMFMC130

 Eeeek! Welcome back to Monday again.  Hope you've had a lovely weekend and that you had some crafty time to celebrate World Card Making Day on Saturday! There were so many fun contests and happenings out there. If you didn't get the chance to create on WCMD, then join us today with a brand new House-Mouse challenge!  

Before we move on, we want to thank those of you who played along with our Teamie Dorte's Autumn/Harvest Challenge #HMFMC129. We had such a fun time browsing through all of your beautiful and colorful Autumn entries.  Wow! You are all such talented peeps.  It's always extra tough to have to choose the winner....
The Lucky Winner this time was Entry #24, which belongs to B. Brassfield
Congratulations! You have won a $25 Gift Certificate to shop at the official House-Mouse Designs store HERE.
Please contact America to claim your Prize.

Our mega talented Teamie, Stacy Morgan is hosting and she wants to see you create an ATC Turn-About. What that basically means is that you will take your ATC and turn it into a card creation.  Easy Peasy, right? 

If you are not familiar with what an ATC is, let us explain; 
It is a miniature work of art with an approximate size of (2 ½ X 3 ½ inches), or, (63 mm X 89 mm).  It is small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of mail art and has its origins in Switzerland. These mini Cards are produced in various media and usually traded or exchanged rather than sold. The sky is the limit in this fun art. So give it a go!!! :)

For added inspiration, here is a Link to an older challenge in which we also featured samples of ATC's. Check it out HERE --> HM&F MC Challenge, HMFMC101.
