What Do I See? A Beautiful ATC Waiting For Me!


This beautiful ATC arrived in my mailbox today.
Beth my swap partner in the
created this beauty.

Now this is Beth's
 FIRST ATC!
What is an ATC, you ask?
It is a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" card
upon which you create
a work of art,
by painting,
collaging,
drawing,
sewing,
or just about any
form of creativity.

Or, in this case,
you create
not a work of art but,
A MASTERPIECE!

I am totally blown away by
this beauty.

Beth showed a small hint to
this ATC in a post on her blog.

In my comment to her,
 I said it looked like a science
experiment or a sun spot.
I could not figure out
exactly what it was.

Who would know that the
beading above, was
going to end up being hair?
And that face,
Beth creates these Cabochons,
isn't she beautiful?
The body is a butterfly,
a double layered butterfly.

I should be showing you a
 picture of the ATC
 I sent to Beth.
But, in my haste to
mail it, I did not take
a photo of it.

And, right now I am glad
I didn't.
You can see the one I
sent Beth on her blog.

Mine cannot compare to
this beauty.
Really, Beth I absolutly
LOVE THIS!

I have decided I will have
to step up my game,
to hang with these girls.

It is probably a good thing
Wendy and I both
write the
or they may kick me out!

If you would like to join our swap group,
we would love to have you,

We will be matching Swap Partners
for September soon!

Love to all,
Debbie

  1. I was just getting ready to comment on the ATC you sent to Beth, when your new post popped up.
    This is a pretty card I will go over and tell Beth, and I wanted to tell you that your card is just what you said on the card "dreamy." I think you really captured the emotion.

  13. Beautiful Miss D! I can totally see why peeps are crazy over these sweet cards.

    I'm soo sorry about the loss of pictures. I've done similar things before. I once deleted ALL my ebay background images that I used on my template. They were all hand painted and when I hit delete and empty that bin that was it.

    You are right to build from today.

    Love to you. Glad the tutorial on the chairs helped somebody.

  19. Hi Debbie you did receive a great card, er masterpiece. I read on your post today what ATC is now so I am ready to go. Thanks for stopping by. The basket on my post is the very first basket I have ever made. It turned out perfect. It is about 12"x 6" and took me 4 hours to make. I need to make 5 more for my children. My left thumb ached so bad as I was working I didn't know if I would get it done, but I will keep on. I can't post the completed basket, my daughter might see it. I am going to fill it with goodies, powder, lotion, etc. Sorry comment so long.
