A Toast to Crafty Cindy

Cindy and I recently did a 1:1 ATC swap. We picked a retro happy hour as our theme. Fun! Happy Hour is certainly one of my favorite times of the day :). I love the ATCs she created. The faces on the first two make me smile - they certainly look like they are having a jolly good time for themselves don't they?



And how sweet are these two? Perhaps they are catching a cocktail before they are off on a whirlwind adventure where he will propose...


Cindy is also a master charm maker. She sent me this Eiffel Tour charm as a little goodie. Love it!

These are the three ATCs I created for her. Very important to follow mother's advice!

I had an old recipe book that I used for the last two ATCs.


Well all this talk about cocktails and parties has me parched -

Happy Hour anyone?

Cheers,

Hi Karla,

These ATC's are wonderful. I love hanging them around my creative space. It reminds me of all the wonderful people out there. I like the Hapy Hour ATC with the white dinner jacket. What a great time it must have been to go to dinner that dressed up. Have a good week.
