Hello!  Please know that the amount of time it's taken me to post the wonderful ATCs I've received in no way reflects on how wonderful I think they are.  Finally, here's the wonderfulness:

These are from BigBangMomma and are for the themes of 'how to say husband in a different language'.  I love that she thought of sign language and actually drew a picture for how it's done!)  The other card is a 'musical theme' and an 'I love you more' theme (Two in one card! Cheesy) for my younger DD.

Here's the mini envelopes she put them in, which is wonderful!  So many of you have done that that I can now present the cards to my family in them.

This is a grouping of what geekgirl sent me!  A mixed media birthday themed card!  She also sent a page of a book in a language I don't recognize...geekgirl, could you tell me, please?  Thanks!  She also used some of her artwork on cardstock to make stationery.  How beautiful!

This was the envelope the entire shebang was sent in...I'm posting it because I love the swap specific stickers!  Cheesy

This lovely watercolor ATC is from greybird for my 'Xmas' theme.  I love how controlled she is with the watercolor!  I envy it!  (And that shiny washi tape is really cool too!)

These two cars are from irid3sc3nt for my Hanukkah theme and LGBTQ supportive theme!  I love the use of highlighters in the LGBTQ one, and the fact that it took me-Jewish and all-a few minutes to figure out the other card!  (The loaf of bread pictured is called 'challah' and the 'c' is silent.)

This loveable monster is recognizable to everyone on Craftster I am sure!  A wonderful kwality monster for my DH!

Check out the funny washii tape on the back of the envelope...and it really does smell like pizza!  I've never seen washii tape like that before!  Cheesy

This breathtaking ATC is in the theme of the quote on the card for my younger DD.  I adore it...all of it, and I know she will too!

A generous helping of ATCs from thanate!  The book one will go to my older DD, the lip one to my younger DD (she loves makeup), the lucky themed one to DS, and the moth one to DH.  Of course, I love all of these too!

And lastly, a grouping of all the ATCs for the month of November together:

I am so grateful that something told me to join this swap to receive ATCs for my family.  Every year, I have something Craftster made to give to my family and I'm glad that this will be no exception.  Thank you so much all of you.

(And to those of you that I still owe ATCs to, they will be mailed out by the end of the week.  I have no appointments for tomorrow or Friday, so I will have lots of time to get them done.  Thank you for being so patient!)

I received a card for my fairy tale theme from bunny1. Its from Jack and the Beanstalk. Its jack showing off his magic beans. Im envious of bunnys hand drawing skills. I avoid hands at all cost!
The card is great - thank you!

And she included this notecard with a collage that she made. Love it!

PIoneer9 sent me a found poetry card and incorporated my space theme. The poem is perfect! Thank you.

Calling also did found poetry plus chose 3 off my list (glittery, polka dots, red) for this great card. I love all the texture and the punchinella she added to it. And she also made an extra double sided card with a postage stamp on it
AND an altered library card! Altered library cards are one of my newest favorite Things.
Thanks for some great cards.

I have received quite a few ATCs!

This is from calluna for my "plotting cat" theme.  Just look at that sneaky face.  I love the poem, the composition, and bright orange.

She also included a photo of herself as a child as a bonus!  I haven't seen this done before, so I'm pleased to have one.  It is not actually a parallelogram, it's just angled funny in the photo.

This is from LadybugsAndBumblebees for my "kitty toe beans" theme.  It is titled "Toe Beans vs. Jellybeans"  She used a vintage image of an Easter Bunny!  That polka dot background fits very well.  My kitty's toe beans would be mostly licorice with a hint of strawberry.  Cheesy

This is from bunny1kenobi for my "jorogumo (half lady half spider)" theme.  This is Stella.  She is quite a shapely lady and I like that her abdomen details and hair match in color.  She is wonderfully creepy.

This is also from bunny1kenobi for my "monster love" theme.  This is titled "Seymour & Audrey".  They are sharing a meal like Lady and the Tramp, except it's not quite spaghetti they are eating...

This is from geekgirl1000100 for my theme that includes one specific image (linked in the theme list).  The image is this weird cat lady.  It's hilarious that she is prancing among the meadow of beautiful flowers.  There are dots of gold among them, which may not be visible in the photo.  It's quite lovely.

Thank you, ladies, for all of the wonderful ATCs and the extra cards that you sent!

This gallery is so amazing!
I'm going to post here since I'm losing track of which of these cards were for October and which were for November at this point. Oops!

From Thanate for my cute monsters theme:

From Linda P. for my cute monsters theme and a surprise theme:

I love the expression on these guys and the glitter background is pretty cool.

From Craftylittlemonkey for my black and white with a pop of color theme:

Just check out the texture on this card. The moon and stars are cut out of a very cool paper. I love it!
She also sent me this amazing monster book which I adore!

a sample of one of the pages:

I have received several ATCs!

Thanate chose my owls theme and created this regal owl.  It has a lot of detail in the feathers.

Thanate also chose my fancy witch shoes theme to create this pair of tall heeled boots.  I love the color, the reverse side is also pretty.  

And, bonus, thanate's daughter made an ATC!  It is a "T-Rex dressed up as 'spook girl' and eating Halloween candy (she's wearing a white sweater)"  It is so sweet!!!  I'm particularly fond of that eyeshadow.

Curiousfae chose my zentangle with orange elements theme and made me these next two ATCs.  One is actually a bonus, since she said she had so much fun making the first.  Y'all with your tiny line work.  I'm envious.  The first one makes me think of people dancing!

Thank you, ladies!

I am deeply sorry that I did not post these sooner.  Please do not think it is a reflection on how much I love them!  Without further ado, here goes:

The generous Linda P. sent TWO ATCs-one was an extra!  The husband one was the one she claimed, the other was for my son.

And look what they were sent in!!!!  I love this idea!

Next up is greybird for my 'Buckley the Minecraft Chicken' theme:

THIS IS PERFECT!!!!  If you are not familiar with Minecraft, it is an game that you can play on an ipad or such, and everything in the world is made up of squares.  Do you see how hard it must have been for greybird to draw this?Huh!!!  Do you see how perfect it is???  And I love that it's looking at me too!!!  (I'll make another post about the origin of the theme for this card, it's funny.

It was sent in this beautiful card featuring a bird and fall leaves on the front with a bottom of paper lace.  It was all embossed.  I took a photo of it but now I can't find it.   Tongue

Gozer created this understated, but perfect, ATC for my younger daughter.  I love the green shiny background and the white around the letters, and the lettering.  (BTW, gozer, I LOVE your return address/address stickers!  The snail is so cute!!!!!)

pioneer9 created the 'Teeny Little Super Guy' themed card below:

For those of you not familiar with the subject, the 'Teeny Little Super Guy' was an animated short on Sesame Street years and years ago.  Look it up on you tube, you won't be disappointed!  Grin

THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gozer, thank you for your kind words! I feel better about my drawing skills, too- but I owe my improvement to you for your patient instruction and all the inspiration youve provided over the years!

Such fantastic cards! This gallery is amazing! And I have a whole bunch to add, for your viewing pleasure!

From Linda P, who favored me with pieces from my Warehouse 13 and Victorian themes:

From Kwality, an awesome monster for artists choice:

From LBABB, an imaginative nightmare!

From geekgirl, who went with the Aztec bloodstone that started the Warehouse 13 series:

You guys ROCKED this swap! Im beyond delighted to have these cards for my collection!

Here is my ATC from Linda P.  She chose my Georgie the Ghost theme from the 1940s book series by Robert Bright.  This is Georgie in the attic with one of the mice that live there.  He has the Best in Costume ribbon.  This would be from the Georgie's Halloween book.  I'm so happy to have a Georgie!

This is my ATC from anna.wahnsinn.  She chose my Munsters theme (tv show from the 1960s).  Here is Lily, the mother.  You can kind of see in the photo that she is colored with metallics.  What did you use, anna.wahnsinn??

From pioneer9 came this kawaii bat, from my kawaii Halloween theme.  Isn't it the cutest???  Very kawaii.  That cursive writing is also fab.

Pioneer9 also sent this ATC titled "Crow Zentangle".  She had picked my theme zentangle with orange elements.  I think it is so lovely that she included my crow theme as well.  I hope you used a ruler for this because if you free-styled these lines I'm going to eat my hat.

Thank you, ladies!

Here are several ATCs I have received.

First a space themed/galaxy painting from LindaP. This is so great. Such detail in a small space.

Then a stamp collage piece from PIoneer9. Love all the bits. and that there is a map included - love maps!

And from greybird - 2 cards
One is artist choice and she chose to draw Eversong Woods which is the blood elf starting area in World of Warcraft which we are both fans of! Looks great!

And the second is a watercolor galaxy. Also a great card. Love the colors.

Great card for such a fun theme!

The following were sent to pioneer9, kwality, gozer and calluna but have yet to be received and time is running out so I am going to post them now. Don't peek if you don't wanna spoil your own surprise!

for pioneer9 a hand drawn gnome. I am not a great illustrator so I looked through a gnomey book to find a cute little fella to sketch. 

for kwality, an old timey phone. It was cut out of a card BBM sent me that she made when she first got a machine that does that fun stuff. It's pasted to one of my masterboards.

for gozer, what else but a very mischievous kitty. He or she is very sparkly golden.

for calluna, also a bit golden sparkly. In fact, all 4 of the cards I made have this paint on them somewhere. I had it out and I was really loving it that night Cheesy.

Here are the last 2 ATCs I have received.  (I feel like I may have missed posting 1 or 2 ATCs - need to go figure that out).

LBBB chose my pick 3 theme and picked red, polkadots, washi, and a button
It also fits into my monochromatic theme!  Thanks LBBB.

kwality picked my monochromatic theme and came up with this cutie.  He looks good in all purple. I'm going to call him Murphy.  Great job on the theme.  the little bits of black and white are just fine and highlight him perfectly!
