Giveaway and ATC Swap

Don't forget about the  giveaway.
You don't have to post it on your
blog, just become a follower and
answer 5 questions
 about previous posts.

I was in a giveaway like this
once before, where we did a
game and I liked it!  Not as
easy as, just commenting you
 would like to win, but I hope
 it is fun for you!
I have added an email button
to make emailing me easier.


I also swapped ATCs with Mya.
Since Wendy and I started the
 ATC blog late in the month, we
each swapped with an additional
participant.

Mya's ATC arrived in a cute little
envelope.

Mya had a humorous take on the theme Sisters.
I love it, sure does bring a smile to your face.

I also swapped with Donna.  We had decided to
do this before the ATC Swap group was formed.
(Donna is now a participant in the swap and will be
swapping in the August swap.)

She said it was to remind me of my
Florida friend. 
(It reminds me she does beautiful work.)
Do you see all the beads and pearls,
abalone shell cabochons on a
fabric background with decorative
stitching.

The back of her ATC, see, what I mean
even the back is professional.
This was not all she sent,

A postcard, yellow rick rack, tags and
hearts to use on my ATC's.

(How did Donna know the ATCs I sent Mollye
and Mya had hearts on them?)
Maybe along with being a top-notch
needle worker she is psychic too!

I also swapped with my "Sister Magpie",
Mary Ann.  I haven't sent Mary Ann
hers yet, but this beauty tells me I
had better send a good one!

Mary Ann had stitched some beads on the ATC,
but they didn't survive the trip.
Canada is a long way from Kentucky. 
I love how she used the soft flower and the
metal mesh together.
There is also a lot of decorative stitching
on this piece.

I am like a kid getting all this fun mail!

Don't forget the Giveaway!

Love to you all!
Debbie

oops - sorry those beads didn't survive! I thought after I had put it in the mail box that maybe I should have put it in a padded envie. too late then to change it obviously!! Too bad I hadn't thought to do that in the first place. Glad you like it anyway.

So often our mail is slow around here, so was happily surprised to see your ATC in today's mail.
Your ATC is so pretty. Now I want to know how you made it. I want even guess how you stitched the small heart - that's a lot of turning in so small an area.
Is the background fabric, with a coating on it, or is it paper - it has a texture to it.
And, is the heart sewn or glued on?
It is so well bonded as one element that I cannot tell the layers. This is only your 4th - Wow.
Thank you, this really was fun.

DEAR DEBBIE,
YOUR GIVE AWAY QUESTIONS WERE A LOT OF FUN.
EVEN AFTER I FOUND THE ANSWERS, I HAD TO KEEP READING ALL YOUR POSTS. I WAS SO INTRIQUED AND WAS ANXIOUS TO READ THE NEXT ONE AND THE NEXT ONE.
I WILL E MAIL YOU MY ANSWERS.
SO GLAD TO HAVE MET YOU AND WENDY AND BE PART OF "THE BLISSFULL ATC SWAP". THAT WOULD MAKE A GOOD THEME: BLISSFULL.
HUGS

Great cards! I'm beginning to worry the card I made isn't going to live up to everyone's beauties!

Delightful cards, so inspiring and fun. I'm so glad I joined this swap, really having a good time checking out everyone else's works and of course had fun making my first one as well! Looking forward to our "orange" swap next...
