Tag You're It!

This week we would like to see you turn your ATC into a gift tag. You could simply use the ATC as a topper on a tag, or make a single layer or opening tag to the size of an ATC, that's 2.5" x 3.5" or 64mm x 89mm. Soon we will be needing tags for Christmas gifts, but don't forget birthdays and other occasions when you need a tag.

Take a look at the Design Team's creations to see what we mean:

Alota Special

We are pleased to have Shary on our Design Team here at Tilda and Friends, but did you know that Shary is also a Design Team Member for Alota Stamps and this week she has a prize of an Alota stamp for one lucky entry, so, over to Shary:

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying the ATC challenges. This week I am offering an Alota stamp as a prize. I was lucky enough to be asked by Helene of Alota stamps to be on the Design Team in July. Of course I said yes straight away, how could anyone resist those cute stamps? I love working with them especially the cute bugs. If you get a chance do go and visit the website, there are tons of gorgeous stamps to choose from and won't cost you a fortune! Helene is a lovely lady and she is always willing to help. Although they come from the US, delivery time is always quick.

So onto this week's challenge......

I thought we could do something a little different this week. There is no set theme this week. Making your ATC is still the same, any cute "round faced" stamps, be it Magnolia, Cuddly Buddly, Hanglar, Alota, Spiral Whisper etc. But here's the difference.... I would like you to show your ATC as usual on your blog, leave us a link and then send it on to me, along with an SAE. I will then gather them all together and swap them and then send one back to you. That way you can see another ATC first hand and maybe gain some inspiration from your "new" ATC. Who knows it could be the start of your ATC collection?

So all you have to do is send your ATC to me with an SAE,(after you have shown it on your blog and left us a link). Don't forget to put your details on the back, your name , date, email etc. Your ATC should get to me by Wednesday 22nd October. This gives you 2 weeks to get your ATC off to me. I will then send them all out on Friday 24th October. And, the Design Team's ATCs will also be included in the swap. I'd love to get lots of people to take part and be able to enjoy seeing one another's ATCs first hand. If you would like to participate here is the address to send your ATC to:

Sharon Nettleship
c/o Sgt R Nettleship
Normandy Barracks

Here's the prize for one randomly chosen winner this week of a brand new Alota stamp, which Helene kindly donated. To be in with a chance of winning this lovely stamp all you have to do is leave us a link to your ATC on your blog.

It's a Wrap!

A nice easy theme for everyone this week! We would like you to wrap up your ATC with ribbon, string, paper, wire, or anything else that comes to mind. The design is up to you, just remember to use a cute faced image such as Magnolia, Hanglar, Alota or Cuddly Buddly. If you don't have a blog and would like to join in with us, please send your pictures to a member of the Design Team to load at the end of this post. The sizes and details for making ATCs are on the side bar, but most important is to have fun!

Here's what the Design Team have created this week:
