Little Bit o Burns the Scottish Bard

Burn's Night is nearly upon us - 25th January (my eldest was born on 30th January and is called Robert, just missed the appropriate date to be born by 5 days LOL).

I made some little ATCs that mark the occasion, here they are below in all their glory:


If you click on the picture you should be able to read the excerpts of wee poems by the man himself.

I used a tartan pp that I have had in my stash for ever, added some lace left over from my wedding dress - that'll be antique lace then, since I've had it for 15+ years:o) and some flowers that I won from Sue on a Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT blog hop! Thanks Sue.

I found a scroll shape on the web and did a bit o jiggery-pokery (as my dad would say) to add the wee bits o poetry, printed onto cream CS and crumpled then a little distressing ink added to age them a little. I also distressed the edges of the ATCs with a nail-file (do we crafters never use anything as it was intended - probably not), attached the scrolls to the ATCs with some 3-D squares and voila!

Some of these have people's names already attached, as I owe a few for swaps on the Docrafts Forum. Might have to keep a wee one for myself :o)

Thanks for looking and any comments you might leave.

I'd like to enter the above ATCs to the following Challenge:
