October Atc Challenge And Swap

49 posts in this topic

Did you see Melanie Cockshott's article in the October 3rd Newsletter? Here's a link if you missed it: October is Positive Attitude Month. Take a moment to read it and look at the cards she made with positive affirmations. This month, I'd like to challenge you to make a card with a positive affirmation. I'll collect them all and send them out to all participants, then we'll all have a collection of little cards to use!

 

You have until next month to complete the challenge and you can do as many as you like. I will be away the first week of November, so I'm extending the regular deadline by a week. Cards are due Wednesday, November 14. Post your ATC in the ATC Challenge & Swap gallery. Then email a full resolution to me at scrapgirl.elisha@gmail.com. I will post a new challenge on Friday, November 16.

Looking forward to getting to know each of you better and seeing what you all come up with. Have Fun!!

This is something I'd like to have a go at - can somebody please help me get started. For instance - what size should the card be?

Hilary - that's great news! Here are the basic instructions: Atc Instructions, but please refer to the current post as to where to send your ATC.

 

Basically, your card should be 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size, created at 300px resolution. Save it as a jpg and send it to me. save it at 72px to post. We no longer have a chat - but we can certainly be plenty chatty on this thread!

Here's Mine What fun this was to create. Do I need to create a back for this?

 

It looks great! No, no need for a back. For these we generally put our name and/or screen name and the date somewhere on the front. For instance, I'll sign mine "elibar October 2012"

 

Which I see that I forgot to do!!! I'll edit it and repost it when I get a chance.

We certainly can be chatty on this thread! I love that we "talk" to each other in our posts - SG is the chattiest little purple place on the planet! And ATCs are the MOST fun to make! I look forward to the ATC challenges every month! Thanks, Elisha for doing this for us!

I can't remember whether or not I sent my cards to Elisha - my desktop is such a mess and I've been terrible about putting things where they belong this month. Have you gotten anything from me Elisha?
