July ATC swap

Debbie of Mosaic Magpie sent this pretty ATC to me for the July ATC swap. As you can imagine I was delighted.

The blue toile de Jouy makes a lovely backdrop for the bright red heart.

Because I am new to the ATC swap connection, and want to learn more about the construction of these cards, I asked Debbie how she made the card. It was so well put together that it seemed to be of one layer with the exception of the little heart which she had stitched on. Well, to my surprise it has seven layers including the heat/bond and the heart.

Each month there is a different theme - this month's was "Sisters."
Thank heavens for me this is not about how artistic you are, but about having fun.
If you think that you would like to join in the snip, stitch, and/or glue experience please click here Blissfull ATC Swap for information.

Thank you so much, Debbie.


  1. I adore anything toile, so this really caught my eye. I can see why you were so excited to get it.

    Happy weekend,

  2. I am so happy you like the ATC. Isn't it neat how each of us had the same theme but, interpreted it so differently. I still get a chuckle when I look at yours.
    Love to you,
