So, here's a fun (I hope) challenge for you - while tidying up in my sewing room today, one of the things I did was cut a lot of miscellaneous old reject projects and so on into bases to make ATCs with. I ended up with a LOT of bases (i.e. 2.5x3.5" rectangles). I've done a quick count and I reckon there are at least 150 in there. Some are just fabric, some have wadding between two layers of fabric, some have pelmet vilene in between - depends on what they used to be.

So, here's the challenge - I will send 5 assorted ATC bases and a little tiny zipper bag of embellishments to the first 10 people who are interested. You will need to use one of the bases to make an ATC to send back to me - I don't mind in the least how you use it - you can sew, paint, embellish, felt, staple :), whatever. I would just like you to use it as the base for an ATC, the rest of which will be of your personal inclination. The other four, you can do with as you like. I don't mind if you use any of the embellishments on the card or not (they will probably mostly be sequins and small beads as that's what I have the most of!). ATCs are due back to me by end of September or so. I'm not too fussed - this is for fun. If it's popular, I might run another round in the autumn in honour of my birthday (yep, the big 4-0) in November.
So, any takers?
[edited to say, sorry, I've had 10 people already - in about 2 hours - wow! But I promise we'll do it again before long]
