Hi Everyone . . . I want to tell y’all about my participating in an ATC swap! This is the very first time I not only joined a swap but the first time I made any Artist Trading Cards. For those who don’t know, Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s) are like mini tags with very specific rules.  The cards have to be 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and only 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick (limits the height of your emblishments-LOL) and the artist signature must appear on the back of the card. . . after that anything goes!
This all came about when one day I was looking at the entries on the PITA facebook page and Vicky Nash commented that she would like to participate in either an ATC swap or album swap and she was welling to act as hostess.  Well things took off fast from there and before you knew it there were 12 people who signed up for the ATC swap (it was limited to 12 because one of the participates bought a wooden ATC display tray and there were only 12 spots for cards-LOL). 
I made my 12 identical cards and sent them off to Canada (where Vicky lives). Oh, did I forget to mention this swap was international. Cards were not only coming from the United States, but from Canada and Europe. Well LOOK at what the mailman delivered yesterday . . . 
I am afraid that my old camera does not do justice to these beautiful cards. They are absolutely stunning!!! This is a very talented group of ladies and I will treasure these cards always. Vicky made this such a wonderful experience that I am looking forward to participating in many more ATC swaps.
Well, that’s all for now . . . thanks for stopping by and until next time . . . Hugs & Kisses – LindaB
