THE LITTLE "ORANGE" HOUSE

XOXOXOXOXOXOXO...AMY...XOXOXOXOXOXOXO
ALWAYS   IN   OUR   HEARTS





I   BELONG  TO  A  GREAT  GROUP  OF  WOMEN.

OUR  LEADERS:


DEBBIE  AND  WENDY


THEY  CREATED

"THE  BLISSFUL  ATC  SWAP!"

YOU  CAN  CLICK  ON  THEIR  BUTTON  ON  MY

RIGHT  SIDE  BAR.


EACH  MONTH  WE  ARE  GIVEN  A  NEW 

ATC  SWAP  PARTNER

WITH  A  NEW  THEME.

OUR  THEME  FOR  THIS  MONTH  WAS

"ORANGE!"


MY  SWAP  PARTNER  IS

DeeDee

HER  BLOG  IS:



YOU  CAN  READ  BRIEFLY  INTO  THE  POSTS  OF  HER 

BLOG  AND  THERE  IS  NOTHING  THIS  LADY  CANNOT  DO

FROM  STAIN GLASS TO  MAKING  TAGS.


WE EXCHANGED  ADDRESSES  AND  WE  SPENT  FROM

SUNDAY  AUGUST  1, 2010  UNTIL  OUR  FINAL  PLANS

TUESDAY  NIGHT  DECIDING  WHERE  WE  WERE  GOING

TO  MEET.


YOU  SEE  DeeDee  WAS  LEAVING  ON  VACATION  AND

DRIVING  THROUGH  THIS  GREAT  STATE  OF  OKLAHOMA.

WE  WERE  GOING  TO  EXCHANGE  OUR  CARDS  IN

PERSON  AND  WE  WERE  BOTH  EXCITED.


I  WAS  IN  SEARCH  OF  AN  ORANGE  HOUSE  FOR

US  TO  MEET  AT.....WOULDN'T  THAT  BE  FUN.....


WHAT  WOULD  BE  THE  ODDS.... 



A  BLUE  HOUSE




I'M  LOOKING  OUT  THE  WINDOW  IN  SEARCH  OF

AN  ORANGE  HOUSE.





A  YELLOW  HOUSE



A  PURPLE  HOUSE.

WAHHHHHHH!  I  SO  WANTED  TO  FIND  AN

ORANGE  HOUSE.  IT  WOULD  BE  SO  PERFECT.


WELL,  I'LL  CLICK  MY  BLACK  OKLAHOMA 

FLIP  FLOPS  THREE  TIMES  AND  WHINE  FOR

AN  ORANGE  HOUSE......

ONE...

TWO...

THREE...

WAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!





WE  HAD  NO  IDEA  WHEN  WE  TOLD  DeeDee

WHERE  WE  WOULD  MEET  HER  OFF  OF  I-35

THERE  WOULD  BE  THE  SWEETEST  LITTLE 

PLAY  HOUSES...ONE  IN  THE  COLOR  ORANGE.

I  WANT  ONE  FOR  MYSELF.   YOU  COULD  MAKE

LITTLE  WINDOW  BOXES  FOR  THE  WINDOWS  AND

OH...YES!  THEY  REALLY  ARE  BUILT  CROOKED......


YOU  MAY  USE  THE  PICTURES  OF  MY  LITTLE

HOUSES  FOR  ANY  OF  YOUR  PROJECTS.   I  MUST

NOTE  THAT  THERE  ARE  STRANGERS  THAT  COME  TO

THIS  BLOG  THAT  YOU  AND  I  DON'T  KNOW  SO  I  MUST

SAY,  THESE  ARE  NOT...I  REPEAT  NOT  TO  BE  USED  ON

PORN  SITES  OF  ANY  KIND.  YOU  WOULD  BE  SHOCKED

AT  THE  PORN  SITES  THAT  ATTACK  CHRISTIAN  BLOGS.





THESE  ARE  TWO  BEAUTIFUL  DIVA'S  HOLDING

UP  OUR  ATC  CARDS.

DeeDee  IS  THE  TALL  ONE...I  AM  THE  SHORT  ONE.

DeeDee  TRAVELED  WITH  TWO  PRECIOUS  COMPANIONS.

1  SPECIAL  NEEDS  MINI  POM  THAT  HAD  THE  MOST

TRAGIC  LIFE,  PRIOR  TO  HER  ADOPTING  HIM  AND

HER  OTHER  TWO  YEAR  OLD  POMERANIAN  WHO   WAS 

RESCUED  BY  HER.


DeeDee  WILL  BE  ON  VACATION  FOR  AWHILE   

  AND  SHE  ALREADY  HAS  POSTS  SCHEDULED

FOR  EVERY  DAY  BUT  GAVE    ME  PERMISSION  TO

POST  OUR  PICTURES  AND  CARDS.


BUT...WHAT  IS  IN  THE  PINK  SACK  SHE  GAVE

ME  WILL  BE  SAVED  FOR  PINK  SATURDAY.





THIS  ATC  IS  BEAUTIFUL.   THE  BUTTERFLY

IS  IN  SOFT  SHADES  OF  ORANGE  WITH  TOUCHES

OF  BEAUTIFUL  GLITTER.

SHE  HAD  NO  IDEA  THE  DEPTHS  OF  THE  "NEW"

MOTTO  OF  MY  LIFE  BUT  THEN  MAYBE  SHE  REALLY

DOES....

"A  LIFE  RENEWED"

HER  DAD  AND  MOTHER  DIED  WITHIN  A  YEAR  OF

EACH  OTHER  AND  IT  JUST  ABOUT  KILLED  HER

SPIRIT.








THIS  IS  THE  ATC  I  MADE  FOR  DeeDee.

IT  SAYS,

"ORANGE"  WILL  NEVER  BE  THE  NEW  PINK.

IT  IS  THE  SECOND  ATC  I  HAVE  MADE.

I  USED  A  VINTAGE  PLAYING  CARD  I  HAD.




THANK  YOU  FOR  JOINING  ME  AND  DeeDee  IN

OUR  ATC  EXCHANGE.

DeeDee,  I  SO  ENJOYED  MEETING  YOU.  SO  SORRY  ABOUT

THE  110  DEGREE  TEMP.  NO  ONE  COULD  TELL  WE  WERE

SWEATING  BUCKETS  OF  FLUID.  I  LOOK  FORWARD  TO

OUR  NEXT  VISIT.   I  AM  THINKING  OF  A  GOOD  PLACE...

A  COOL  PLACE...TEMP  THAT  IS.



THANK  YOU  FOR  JOINING  ME  FOR  THIS  SPECIAL 

MEMORY.  I  LOVE  TO  SHARE  THINGS  WITH

EACH  OF  YOU  AND  IT  BRINGS  ME  SUCH  JOY

WHEN  YOU  STOP  BY  FOR  A  VISIT.

HAVE  A  LOVELY  DAY  FULL  OF  SUNSHINE.

Debbie, that was a lot of fun, actually getting to swap cards in person. Both of your cards have so mucy detail.
Am I the only one out here that is asking, "How do they do that?"
I need basic arts 101...no the course before that!

mya said...

and an orange house...now, I know not everyone can do that!

Very great cards you both made! It is also super cool that you all got to meet in person!
I've finished my ATC and will be sending to my swap partner, Anna. Orange was a HARD theme!

Hello Debbie,

What adorable little houses and I love the photo of you and your friend :-)

Thanks for visiting me and reminding me about being able to get Gizzy's meds at the pharmacy. I don't have a car and live a long ways from a Wal Mart, but my local Pharmacy extends me the same deals as Wal Mart, so I'll call WalMart to see how much Gizzy's meds would be and ask if I can have them for the same price here in town.
Have a wonderful week :-)
Doris and Gizzy :-)

God Bless You
