Technique Junkies Dabbed Shimmers and ATC swap

 I have been enjoying this new stamp set introduced last month by Firecracker Designs by Pamela called Got Chocolate?  I like Milk Chocolate...... and it is an invite to use Pink and Brown CS together and not use a Valentine..... I have my new TJ newsletter, and have been playing with a technique called Dabbed Shimmers (can you see the shimmer in the BG)?  And, Wisped Frames on the main sentiment.
Do you love the new SU Satin ribbon???  I really enjoy using it!


I think this card is a great card to send a friend instead of a Thank You card for dinner invites or for someone that does something nice for you.
  While I was Dabbing Shimmers.......I decided to whip up a set of ATC's- I used the same stamp set by Firecracker Designs by Pamela, and the same two techniques by the Technique Junkies I used Close to Cocoa )sparingly) and Creamy Carmel for the shimmer. I colored the truffles with Copic markers. I used Copics: E33, E35, E37, E49, R81, R83, R83.



 This set of ATC's will be in the mail on the way to Juliet A's for the TJ ATC swap!  I am trying to send one set a month, and this is my Feb Set.

  Here is a template for cutting ATC's out of an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper.

Hope you can join us this week- beginning the 19th for a FCD Blog Hop- There is usually candy involved...........

Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome card and ATCs - one of the things that I like about Pamela's sets is that she has a wide variety of image sizes in each set.
