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.

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!

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!
