First up - May's "Anything Goes" Atc's...a totally free choice for the theme, so I wandered into the town after work one afternoon for some retail inspiration. Ever been into Hawkins Bazaar? It's a great place to pick up all sorts of useful things for all occasions... my brother and sisters usually end up buying loads of silly presents for us all every Christmas lol... but they do have some little odds and sods that are perfect for crafters.
Like the packs of miniature playing cards - just couldn't resist... so here are some of my ATC's this month...
I started with cream cardstock and used one of TH's new Distress Stains (either Fired Brick or Barn Door - can't remember which!) diagonally across the card. The Joker was stamped in black Memories and covered in Glossy Accents. The playing cards were sorted into suits and hole-punched with my CropaDile, then a matching eyelet holds them together. Or should do, the eyelet shank is a little small so had to use some glue on the last card lol...)
Kept it simple this month!
I'm no poker-player at all, much prefer Blackjack (last year I won 114 euros at a casino in Ostend playing Blackjack!) but apparently this is an ace-high straight flush - or Royal Flush, and is the highest ranking standard poker hand.
Wonder if you get extra points for the matching eyelet??
Mays tags will follow in a short while...
