I am floored and amazed at the beautiful ATC cards I received in the mail today! These are my first ATC Swaps and I am just overwhelmed with the cards sent to me!
Now that the swaps are over, I will post the cards I made to trade. I posted a few of them on my blog a couple of weeks ago. Here are all of them.
I am finding that I absolutely LOVE ATCs! They are like little mini canvases. I love how small they are and the fact that they are all so different! They can express some "deep thoughts', silly thoughts or just be little works of art!
Here are the first bunch of ATCs I received. They are from a Yahoo VPI group that I am a new member of. The swap was an "Anything Goes" type of swap. These gorgeous little works of art are from: (left to right) Sandy Scholz, April Dudko and Liz DeWitt. Aren't they just fabulous? I seriously LOVE them all!! And a special thank you for Kris Dickinson for hosting the swap and sending a really cool little package of ephemera with my ATC cards.
Then....I received another package in the mail today!! This was from my second ATC Swap with another Yahoo group that I belong to. This time, our theme was "Dimensional ATCs" ... anything we wanted to make, as long as they were dimensional.
Am I a lucky girl or what?! Aren't these amazing, too? Lori Hassler was sweet enough to host this ATC swap...so a huge thank you to Lori! These cards are amazing as well and two of them are from my fellow Design Team Members over at Simon Says Stamp and Show: Sarah Engels-Greer and Lynne Forsythe. These amazing cards are from: (left to right) Sarah Engels-Greer, Lori Hassler-Rocket Science), Sue Kessleman-Phone Rolodex), Lori Hassler-Look and See, and Lynne Forsythe-Art. Susan's Rolodex ATC has Tim Holtz' Labels stamped onto card stock and made to look like business cards. Each one has a little embellishment on it and they are all fastened to the ATC cover using jump rings. It is adorable!
I'm working on some more ATC cards now for future swaps. I think I'm HOOKED!!! LOVE THEM!
