1 Animal ATC Swap on Fri Jul 10, 2009 4:23 pm

I've decided that it's about time I hosted my first ATC swap and hope as many as poss will join in with me.

I have thought long and hard about the theme and discarded my favourites 'pink' and 'flowers' as too frequent, so I decided on animals as they can be fun as well.

So the theme will be any type of animal or using any type of media with no restrictions on colours, embellishments etc.

I would ask if we can keep it to TWO ATCs per person and please enclose an SAE to be with me by Friday 31st July changed to 10th August. I have only made it three weeks as I have found in the past that if the end by date is too far away it can get forgotten. However if you feel this is too soon, please let me know and I can arrange another date.

Please let me know who would like to join in and pm me if you need my addy

I'm really miffed that none of you want to join my first ATC swap Sad

If no-one is keen then should I postpone it for now?

Let me know what you think.

I don't usually sign up until I've actually made them as things tend to some up, especially at the moment, as my kids break up from school today. I do want to join in and I will try Anne but I can't promise anything. Don't give up though, mum will join in but she's on holiday at the moment so she won't have seen it yet. And I'm sure there are others that will join in too.

Fe I was just thinking the same thing about the spider!

thanks everyone for coming back to me - I knew turning on the waterworks would get a reaction!! tee hee

The trouble is because we're not going away till at least September and we don't have kids I tend to forget that others will go away at this time of year and that school holidays are starting (well at least the roads will be quieter going to work in the morning!).

I think what I'll do is extend the date till mid August to give more time - will amend the first post.

Hey Pippa, thanks for joining us and really pleased you're joining my swap - your work is beautiful, as the others will see, so no need for constructive feedback. Very Happy

Lyn - it can be any type of animal, real (well preferabley pic of not a real animal stuck to an ATC!) or cartoony or any type of image - stamped, sticker, computer printed. And any type of animal from elephants to butterflies. elephant

Thanks for joining in.

Hi Anne,
I've just finished my first ever ATC's and they're in the post to you tonight!
Hope they've got everything they need (and yes, they do have an animal!).
I've posted a pic on my blog (http://elainescards.blogspot.com/) so you can have a sneaky peek - have only just signed up for the flickr account so can't post on there just yet.

yep animals all round - sorry lyn unless your card for last challenge is 2.5" by 3.5" then I'm afraid it won't qualify for my swap.

Hi Dee - Fe said you were on holiday, hope you had a really good time and a good rest. Thanks for joining in my swap.

Well, I've made my first ATCs! Something a bit different from my usual style. Unfortunately I still haven't figured out how to upload pictures, so you'll have to wait....
I do have a question though: having not done swaps before, I'm not sure how this works. Do I send both ATCs to Anne (Chocolate Fudge Cake), or do I send one and keep one? (I'm loath to part with both, as they've taken me AGES!)

Oho!! I'm in this! Oh...I forgot., thank you Pipster for reminding me! ..I think I am....yes...quick! I'm doing them now! sort of.. and some one will tell you how soon Pipster, I'll just confuse you, if I try!!

21 Re: Animal ATC Swap on Sun Jul 26, 2009 10:03 am

Pipster - you send both to me with an SAE, I will then distribute your two to others and send you two from two different people. (hope that makes sense). If you can't up load I can scan them here and upload them.

P.S - sorry I didn't ring on Friday - (fell asleep in front of the telly and never heard the phone when you rang!) how useless am I?! Embarassed
