That means ALL of you are invited--even you who just read the posts and don't comment--you know who you are!!

This is and ATC, or Artist Trading Card, swap. ATCs are 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch pieces of artwork (the same size as a baseball card), usually collage/mixed media--you can use any media you like, but the base should be fairly sturdy, like a decent weight cardstock.
These are neat to keep as they are, but they also make great scrapbooking embellishments.

We'll swap 3 for 3--you send in three cards, and you will receive three cards in return, form three different people. It's fine if your cards are all the same design. Please sign and date your cards on the back, maybe put your forum name, e-mail addy or blog, so the recipient can contact you and say "thanks."

Please send in your best work--something you'd be delighted to receive in return.

Since it's close to Valentine's Day, let's have a Love theme for this swap. Please send them to me, along with a self addressed stamped with at least TWO first class stamps and ONE 17 cent stamp, envelope. (Please remember to include your SASE!!)

Please SEND BY FEBRUARY 2nd. That should give it time to get here--I'm in Missouri, so kind of central to most of you USAers--and back to you in time for Valentine's Day.
These are tiny, remember? You can definitely have these done by then!

New to ATCs? Here's a quick and easy way to start:
ONE main image
TWO background papers
THREE embellishments

Send your three atcs and SASE to:
Trisha Neal
5205 E. 205th St.
Belton MO 64012

Questions? Please ask! I probably forgot something . . .

Ok, question: you just decorate a 2.5x3.5 piece of good weight cardstock in a love theme?

That sounds like fun! If it's not too late, I'd like to join! Let me know!

Nope, not too late, Janice!

I'm glad you're joining us. There are eight or nine of us at this point;
not a huge swap, but definitely "enough."

It was fun! Only a few, um.. interferences... I think at one point I was working on the cards with my 3 yr old on the back of my chair playing with a pop dot! Trisha, my boys are 3 (just turned 3 this past Tues.) and 18 mo. They are awesome! Smile

Ok, let me know if I can post a pic of my ATC cards for the swap! Since it don't know I'll just show you a small part of it! Laughing

Janice's cards are adorable--I went and looked, of course!

Janice, you have fun with those babies. They really and truly do
grow up soooo fast! They're actually fun at all the ages, but I'm
starting to get that "wanna play with babies" thing going again.

Not birth them or raise them, just play with them.

Was going to remind you all to send in your atcs, but apparently that isn't
necessary here. Thank you! Already have the first set in from the altered
art group, and they're very pretty. It's always fun to see all the different
styles and takes on a theme.

I just thought of a question: since we are just making three and there are more than three ladies participating, will we just be getting a random selection of three cards or just be swapping another participants three? Does that make sense?

You'll receive three cards from three random people, but if you all want, I can keep the SGAs together, so you'll get back cards from people you "know."

Whatever you prefer, it's up to you all--let me know what you think.

Thank you for letting me know they arrived, Janice--I'm glad you like them.

At this point, I can't remember who got what atcs. Usually there's a buncha chunky ones, with heavy embellishments, but this time around, I think Lora got the prize for the thickest cards, and hers actually weren't too heavy.

ANYWAY, thanks for playing, ladies!
