ATC Swap - Identity

I'm on a PINK roll! LOL!

I made a Mother's Day card for my mom yesterday and today I made 4 ATCs for a swap.

The theme, Identity was chosen by Mangosteenskin as she's the hostess for the swap. I was supposed to make 3, but I made an extra ATC for Mangosteenskin.

I made the ATCs using textured paper, rubber stamped images of daisy, butterfly and bee, brads and other embellishments.

At first, I wanted to make zentangle ATCs, but then everyone else make zentangles too, so it's not really my identity. Then, I chose to use the theme colours of my blog, which are dark pink and purple to represent myself.

The bee symbolises my name, Debbie aka Day-Bee. Debbie is the short form of Deborah, even though in my IC, it's just Debbie. =) It is of Hebrew origin, which means "bee".

The daisy and butterfly symbolise the girlish side of me. The glitter on some of the embellishments mean that I like some attention, sometimes. Notice that each ATC is different? That means that I like to different from others and it also means that I am fickle-minded. LOL!

I've never swapped ATCs before, so this is really exciting!

I have a few more things to do:
  • make another Mother's Day card
  • think of ideas for this month's blog giveaway
  • post these ATCs to Mangosteenskin
  • post April's blog giveaway to Mariuca
  • post some swaps
  • do some swap shopping! =)
Happy weekend everyone!
