I finally made it to an ATC group meeting here- it has been a while.  The theme this month was letters...and somehow I made that into numbers..... DIng, was OK....

 I made a stencil for the numbers in the background, sponged on with Distress inks. The (Chicago) Cubbie was from the internet, Bases Loaded sentiment is from Create with TLC. The hashtag'16 is an older SU set. I used a circle image from Artistic Outpost and the text is Sweet Stamps.

 We also make a 1-4-1 swap :

 This is a Gelli print, I added leaves that were cut from a Cheery Lynn die, added a bow, some Washi and a sentiment from a Studio G $1,00 set.

 Here is the 1-4-1 I recieved back-made by Linda :

  Haha- perfect for me!  Love it : )

 Here are the rest of the trade ATC's:

Lt side is from Mary- made with initials- not sure if Mary knows it, but my husband's name starts with an R- love it!
Rt side is Mari (aka sounds like Mary) - you cannot see all of the shimmer- so awesome!

 Lt side is from Mary (new Mary) and she played with a Metallic Gold pen.
Rt side is Dee De- she says when kids learn the alphabet, they say LMNOP without taking a breath- cute!  The purple flowers on chipboard is from a Kleenex box.

Lt side is by Cindy K
Rt side by Carol T

Lt is by Naomi and those are real little macaroni letters.
Middle is by Debbie
Rt is by LuEllen

Lt is by Harriet- P is for sparly pear with real beads
Rt is by Linda O. Love this so much!

Mom and I went to visit Dad's grave this past week (All Saints and All Souls day this past week)

We also made it down to Chicago, along with 7 Million other people for the Cubs parade and rally.

It was a MOB scene everywhere, but the excitement- was too much for my hubby to stay home!

Thanks for stopping by!

How clever to do a Chicago Cubs theme. I think it's awesome that they finally won it all. Congrats to you and all their fans. Great ATCs and I bet yours was the pick of them all. Have a wonderful week. I think it will be interesting to see how we all faie with the twins at home. I'm betting there will be a lot of sleepless nights.

Can only imagine the mob scene but Ray had to have been in all his glory ! You are truly one of the smileist ladies I've ever met :-)

Mom looks so good!

OMG Shelly....what a hoot! I love the Cubbie ATC's. We were'nt brave enought to go into the city though it was just a train ride away. All the videos of people squeezing into the trains convinced me to watch everything on TV. So excited for our CUBS!!!

Kim P said...

Shelly, you have an amazing collection here! As a fellow Cubs fan, I couldn't help but smile!!

Hard to imagine these are all just the size of an ATC. Such a lot of detailing on each one. Hugs Mrs A.
