What is it??? No it's not some childhood science experiment gone horribly wrong. Not something the cat drug in...nor nothing that lurked up from the bowels of my forsaken basement...although I do think this has a sister down there!
I decided to take the plunge and join the big girls and make an ATC! This is all I can show you for now as my partner has not gotten it nor is it finished yet. I love the fact I can do these quickly, I think the planning stage takes longer than the actual "doing it" does. This is my first attempt at this new world of artist trading cards. Makes me feel all grown up and stuff! It's a huge plus for my attention span...which honestly has been all over the place this summer. Maybe it has to grow up too. While searching out lost hobbies and new ones to attempt I have just lost focus of everything. Whats that old saying...Jill of all trades...master of none???
What started this journey was an absolute beautiful spirit and her blog named Simply Debbie at http://iamsimplydebbie.blogspot.com/ ..I love her blog and so admire the courage she must face knowing her gorgeous daughter Amy graduated to heaven as she calls it. Having a daughter she pulls at my heart strings with her loss. Miss Debbie decided to try this ATC thing and so she lured me into it's web with tales of how easy it is and a link to a blog that devotes itself to partnering people who would like to trade these small treasures. You can find this blog at
http://blissfullatcswap.blogspot.com/ ...the ladies running it will sure make you feel at home. The art work created on these little ATC's is amazing to me. Every month they set up a theme which is good for me...having to pick a theme on my own sure would have made me bolt for the door. Toooo many options is not a good thing for me.
So off into the unknown I jumped and the result is above...I am so hoping it will turn out as it is in my head and that my partner over looks my newbie mistakes. Wow I hope it don't remind her of what could possibly be in her basement!!!!! I will be back when I am sure my partner has this little treasure in her hands to introduce her and the rest of this project. She sure has put me at ease with my first timer status! I can't wait to introduce you to her blog...she is sooo talented...but for now you must wait...just send me some good ju-ju and positive thoughts that this does not turn out like some failed science experiment!!! Have a great week all! Try to stay cool...we are suppost to have another hot one...where is fall??????
