I'll join in! It looks like I'll get to play with my little birdies after all, well if it works with what comes to mind!

I've been vacillating on this one...my plate is beyond full at this time of the year, but I think I have an idea that will be fairly easy to execute...so count me IN!

I am still thinking and wondering if this is doable for me, the baby is due on the 21st and I have so much going on right now with my Relay for Life team, I might have to sit this swap out, I hate to do it but I don't want to commit if I can't do a GREAT job!

You ALWAYS do a great job, Shannon. Your ATC's are always spectacular!!

If it helps, Shannon, I'm keeping my very simple this time around...I don't have time to get detailed.

A little plea for sanity, here - it's getting on toward summer (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) and things are getting busier everywhere. Let's all try to scale back just a notch - this is supposed to be fun for the makers as well as the receivers. Some time ago the level of complication was almost getting competitive - I really don't want to scare anyone off, especially anyone considering joining for the first time.

 

Every swap I've joined, I've always been very impressed by the cards the creators say did not turn out the way they wanted. If you want to play, please do sign up. If it's going to be stressful, by all means sit this one out. Hope this helps.

Words of wisdom for sure, Gayle. You know, the theme this month is "The Beauty of Nature"...how much bling should that take? Let's just let Nature shine!

Wonderful words of wisdom and a very good reminder, Gayle. Often I get carried away by trying to outdo myself and your "plea for sanity" is well taken. Your best line -- "this is supposed to be fun for the makers as well as the receivers".

Points taken. Thank you for a little de-stressing and reminder! :)

YAY! Jo! Glad you are joining in.

I copied and pasted this from an earlier thread Shannon started. April ATC Sign Up Thread

 

"Do you love ATC's (Artist's Trading Cards) and also love to play with glitter, glue, sequins, buttons, lace, ribbon, shells, and anything else shiny ? Well than this is a perfect swap for you. We do a bi-monthly Hybrid ATC Swap at ScrapGirls. You will make anywhere from 9 up to 18 (max for signing up) cards that measure 2.5 x 3.5 (either horizontal or vertical). The card base is usually created with your digital scrap book supplies then printed and embellished using anything under the sun! You then mail them to ME, in a baseball trading card sleeve folded accordian style which will then usually fit in a standard envelope, with enough postage for them to return and a SASE for your cards coming back! "

 

I hope that helps and I'm sure Gayle or someone else will be along to answer anything else. This thread is usually a blast and keeps us all laughing throughout the month! :)

OK - so I re-read the thread. Sign up is by May 16 and ATCs should be mailed to Gayle for her to have them by June 20th? The theme is Beauty of Nature. Correct?? :)

this thread is a little discombobulated because I switched it from the voting for a topic thread to the sign up thread. I should have started a new thread. My apologies!
