Hi everyone!
I just had to make my first ATC!  Inspiration for the envelope comes from a recent personal swap done by Amaryllisroze for ChloeisCrazy.

L is for Love:  I may give it to my hubby (his name happens to be on it -Jack-, and he's a musician)





Thanks for looking!

Title: My second ATC artist trading card
Post by: babychel on November 17, 2006 11:23:25 AM
So yesterday I made my first one and today I've made my second.  It's sort of becoming a series.  I made this one as part of a greeting card that I'm sending to friends that just moved to a new house.  Guess which number  haha ... oh, and the "P" is for their last name. 



Thanks for looking!  I'm loving making these!

PS ... this is a post for the ATC, not the greeting card (so please don't move it)  Also, I am not double posting it either.

This one is the third in a series ... I dedicate this one to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.



Thanks for looking!

Wow I really like the layout of elements and colors :) It looks awesome! I'm going to get back into ATCs after the new year. Right now I'm busy working on stuff for a show plus making gifts. I add a lot of beaded elements to mine; maybe we can swap in the future... ;D

LOL.  I feel the need to apologize to craftster for getting so off topic. 

But ... news, Katrina, depressing ...

Anyway, have a great turkey day!  Thanks for the kind words Kaos!

Those are great (I'm so partial to printed words on ATC's)  I really like the vintage look too (though I never seem to use it. hmmm.....)

Just finished shovelling more snow-coming up on 4 feet!!

I'm starting to experiment with other kinds of paper to make the little envelopes. I'll share them so you can try them too!

Roxy, what are you talking about?  Remember those shoes you made that I pm'd you about?  That was like when I first started "craftstering"!  You rock!  In the words of Nike - Just do it!

Looking at your stuff makes me so excited (and nervous!) for our personal swap!
I love the cards.  Lately I've seen so many amazing ones (seriously, look in the November personal swap gallery) that I'm really itching to try my hand at them.  These are beautiful!
