House Mouse and Friends Challenge are ATC Turnabouts !!

Our mega talented Teamie, Stacy Morgan is hosting and she wants to see you create an ATC Turn-About. What that basically means is that you will take your ATC and turn it into a card creation.  Easy Peasy, right? 

If you are not familiar with what an ATC is, let us explain; 
It is a miniature work of art with an approximate size of (2 ½ X 3 ½ inches), or, (63 mm X 89 mm).  It is small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of mail art and has its origins in Switzerland. These mini Cards are produced in various media and usually traded or exchanged rather than sold. The sky is the limit in this fun art. So give it a go!!! :)

For added inspiration, here is a Link to an older challenge in which we also featured samples of ATC's. Check it out here---> HM&F MC Challenge, HMFMC101.

This image is 'Santa's Little Helper' and the papers are from Magnolia.

I complain about ATC's are such hard work because they are so small - so why have I ended up doing two -  stupid or what ???
I have to admit doing Mousies are much easier with ATC's because they have some small images.

I have searched around my Christmas  goody box - determined I'm going to use everything up this hear - now this leaves me not be able to give you a lot of the products  used.
I shall add  them in if my computer will let them - it had crashed 3 times this morning -  only a coupple of weeks to go and I can take it back to my shop and get it stripped down.

You definitely got creative turning ATCs into cards - like the idea of the stepper & the half diagonal of the blue card. Amazing how different these two cards look withe the contrasting colours. I do like your snowy foreground in the second!
