December ATC from Wendy A.

Over the weekend, I received my package from Wendy in GA which contained my beautiful December ATC.  Wendy is such a talented artist.  Her cards have such dimension and depth.  The theme was "A Christmas Carol", which I totally screwed up by interpreting as representing a song.  As you can see from Wendy's beautiful card the theme was actually Dicken's story. 

The photo does not do this beautiful card justice.  Wendy was also kind enough to include an additional ATC in my envelope.  The card below is just another example of her creativity. 


And lastly, Wendy included a little zippy bag filled with winter goodies to add to my collection of bits and pieces that are all so important to the creation of ATCs.  Don't forget to check out Wendy's other creations at her blog Bliss Angels


Thanks Wendy for being a wonderful swap partner.  Looking forward to swapping with you again in the new year.

December ATC for Blissfull ATC Swaps

Well I finished my ATC for the Blissfull December swap.  But I think I did it all wrong.  The Theme was A Christmas Carol, which I took to mean "A Christmas song".  I think I got the theme wrong.  I am now thinking that it was suppose to be a reference to Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol".  Boy did I goof up.  Anyway, I really love the atc card that I created and living in South Louisiana we are always "Dreaming of a White Christmas".  I just hope Wendy in Georgia likes its as much as I do.  Merry Christmas Wendy !!!

November ATC's

I was lucky enough to participate in the Blissfull ATC November swap.  I was paired up with the wonderful Debbie.  The theme for November was Thankful.  It didn't take me long to know what I was going to do for my card.  After just having gone through back surgery and having to rely on other for my recovery I knew that I was eternally thankful for my family and friends for helping us through this process.  I was also thankful for my faith in God for pulling me through and walking with me when I didn't think I was going to recover. 

 Below is the card that Debbie sent to me.  It really spoke to my heart, I guess because I am also thankful for the same things she is. 
It will soon be time to start making the December ATC.  This month the theme is Christmas Carols.  I will take the next couple of days and think about what I want to do and will post a picture of it when I have completed it.
