MY FIRST BLISSFUL ATC SWAP

XOXOXOXO...AMY...XOXOXOXO
ALWAYS  IN  OUR  HEARTS


I  HAVE  BEEN  ON  A  JOURNEY

SINCE  AMY  GRADUATED  TO  HEAVEN.

I  HAVE  WATCHED  THE  DIFFERENT

SWAPS  FOR  THE  ATC'S.

I  DIDN'T  KNOW  WHAT  AN

ATC  WAS  BUT  I  SURE  LIKED

WHAT  I  SAW.


ART  IS  A  PASSION  OF  MINE.

I  HAVE  BEEN  A  CLOSET  ARTIST

FOR  OVER  20  YEARS....

BUT  NEVER  SHOWED  MY

WORK  TO

ANY  ONE.  I  HAVE  HAD  NO

LESSONS  OR  DEGREES  IN  ART.

THE  LESSONS  WOULD  HAVE

MADE  MY  LIFE  A  LITTLE

EASIER.





I  MET  TWO  BEAUTIFUL  GALS  BY

THE  NAME  OF  WENDY  AND  DEBBIE.

THEY  ARE  SOOOOOOOO

VERY  TALENTED  AND  NICE  AND

SWEET.

THEY  TOGETHER  HAVE  FORMED



I  HAVE  JUST  PARTICIPATED  IN

MY  FIRST  ATC  SWAP.

MY  ATC  SWAP  PARTNER  WAS

DINA  AT



PLEASE  VISIT  HER  BLOG.

YOU  WILL  BE  BLESSED.

THIS  WAS  THE  FIRST

ATC  SWAP  FOR  BOTH  OF  US.

I  INCLUDED  SOME  SIMPLE

LITTLE  THINGS  TO  MAKE  UP

FOR  MY  ATC  CARD  IN  CASE

SHE  DIDN'T  LIKE  IT.


I  RECEIVED  MY  PRETTY

  ATC  CARD

FROM  DINA.  INCLUDED  WAS

THE  MOST  BEAUTIFUL  LETTER

EXPLAINING  WHAT  INSPIRED

  HER

TO  CREATE  THIS  CARD.

I  AM  NOT  GOING  TO  SHARE

THE  LETTER.

YOU  WILL  HAVE  TO  HOPE  YOU

BECOME  HER  ATC  SWAP  PARTNER

AND  MAYBE  YOU  WILL  BE

BLESSED  WITH  HER

LETTER  OF  INSPIRATION.

OUR  THEME  WAS  "SISTERS." 





MY  SCAN  DOES  NOT  SHOW  THE

TRUE  BEAUTY  OF  HER  CARD.

THE  FLOWERS  SPARKLE  AND

THERE  IS  A  VERY  SERENE

BACKGROUND  THAT  HAS  BEEN

PAINTED  ON  A  DICTIONARY

PAGE  DEFINING  THE  WORD  SISTER.



EACH  MONTH  THE  THEME  CHANGES

AND  FOR  THE  MONTH  OF

AUGUST  THE  WORD  IS:




WON'T  YOU  JOIN  US.........

JUST  VISIT  DEBBIE  OR  WENDY

AND  CREATE

WHAT




IS.......

TO  YOU,

IN  YOUR  ATC  CARD.


I  AM  MUCH  TO  WORDY...

BUT  YOU  TOLERATE  ME

AND  I  LOVE  YOU  FOR  IT.


HUGS

Pam Kellogg said...

Hi Debbie, your ATC is absolutely gorgeous!!! It's been a long time since I've made some ATC's. I will have to add some to my list!

Claudia said...

Hi Debbie, I'm so glad you're getting out there and trying new things! I've only done 2 swaps (not ATC) but it was good for me because it pushed me to take a risk. Good for you!

Dear Simply Debbie,
What a beautiful ATC Dina created for you. I love how she used the dictionary page as a background. Your kind words about the swap are appreciated. I feel I have been blessed by getting to know you.
Love to you,
Debbie

I love this idea....alas, not very artsy myself.

Bellesanbeaus said...

Miss Debbie...you continue to amaze me. I love you try things and are not afraid to put yourself out there! As for being wordy...no way sister!!!! You are an inspiration in places you least likely expect! Big hugs Beth
Gotta run to go looky-see the links you provided...maybe I can learn more about this ATC thingy! lol

Rizzi said...

HI DEBBIE,

HAVE A NICE DAY. RIZZI

Amy was sure an artist, both fashion-wise and design-wise, too. I know ANY swap partner would be LUCKY to have you swap with them. You are talented, too, even your writing is beautiful and fanciful. While the lack of formal training may have made handling materials more difficult (they teach about things like frisket that most people don't find on their own), it sure can't slow down your natural talent.

mya said...

Good morning, Debbie, the ATC you received is very lovely. The way Dina applied the flowers on top of the dictionary page give depth to her project.
I see your ATC on your sidebar - you put together many things to make a pretty card also. You ladies are blooming with talent,

Nezzy said...

I love your words although some are Greek to this Ozark gal.

I have to pop over to see what all this is about. The card is beautiful even if the scan didn't do it justice.

Have a fantastic Friday and a blessed weekend sweetie!!!

Regina said...

Happy Pink Saturday Debbie dear.
Orange is lovely.
