Betcha thought I forgot...

For mine I used WorldWinn Cardstock, Pattern Paper by Bo Bunny, stickers by Carol Lee's Adorn it, and Die Cut sheets by Paper Reflections....
About the ATC..I've gotten quite a few questions so will try to answer them...
1.what is an ATC? ATC stands for Artist Trading Card..some of you asking are in the Deck of Me Challenge it's the same amount of space 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 you can use a card as your base, just cut cardstock down, or buy blank ones to use...the point is just to make some little bit of artsy goodness share with a friend.

2. Is there a prompt or theme...?no...I want you do do whatever you are inspired to do with these tiny little canvases..if you want to make your own theme for all your cards that's fine too..
here are some links for inspiration...

3.Are there rules? I have only one, okay maybe two...1. please if you say you're going to do it, follow through 2. I am asking everyone to put their information somewhere on the card (ie name, address, ssn, blood type, favorite brand of underwear...the usual) JUST KIDDING...really...but I would like you to have your name, email, blog address, and physical address if you want to share...point of this is that I'm making an artadex (rolodex of art..look at me I made a new word!) and so are you!!! If you want to put a photo of yourself on it..whatever you want to do...
4."oh my gosh , I'm so flippin' busy when the crap am I supposed to have these done by? April 30th sound ok? that's about 6 weeks..if not let me know and I can push it back farther...

If I have not emailed you, it is because I don't have your email address....email addresses don't come through on your comments unless you enable this on blogger...I need email addresses so I can send you my physical address so you can send the cards to me. Except for you PAT, you can just walk next door..LOL.. I'm asking that you send me your cards with a self addressed stamped envelope (with the same amount of postage that it took to get your cards to me) This is pretty standard for all swaps. Right now we have 13 participants, if I missed you please let me know.
here are our participants...
me
Casii
Robin
Deanna
Judy
Lisa
Kathryn
Christi
Kylie
Lesli
Pat (coolest neighbor ever)
Carolyn (yes I've sucked you in..)
Dianna (you can run but you can not hide)

the few others that had questions and hadn't commited yet, please just let me know...and if I accidentally left you off the list please let me know...I'm going to close sign ups on Friday so we can get going. Sound good?! I'm so excited to see what you all do with these!

I woke up today and realized I will be 34 in a little less than a month...and not to sound repetitive but really, when did that happen?...obviously somewhere around the time the girls started searching for my armpits whenever I lay down...and I ask you..what the hell is up with this hair that has decided to take up residence on my upper lip?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I have some serious blog reading/catching up to do...will try to get that going tonight...

Angel Gurl said...

I just wish I could be 35 again lol instead of 39. But I say bring on 40!!!Only a year to go until then. I want to give your sketch a go, let me get over this last assignment and I am in!! Alas I will pass on the ATC front.

Lesli said...

Great LO on your sketch - I'm excited for the ATC :)

Kellan said...

Cute layout!! Hope you are having fun at your new job and having a good week. See you soon - Kellan

Dianna said...

I willed that hair on your upper lip....you project forcer you*!*

Lisa said...

I am looking forward to the ATCs, even though I don't have a clue yet what to do, I guess something will come to me. The only firm rule is the size, right? Your ricetta is great this week, I have to do that one!

PS-I'm glad you found a good home for Retro

Kylie in Warsaw said...

LOL, was it my birthday that made you realize that you're getting there too?

I'm already making cards for the ATC swap (LOVE THEM, SERIOUSLY!).

We got yours for Pamela yesterday! Thanks! She's set to work on hers now and she's loving it. I would sign her up for the swap, but I know it would interfere with her schoolwork;).

Five-Browns said...

Ah, I would love to play but our schools closed today for 3wks so with 3 kids (6 and under) I wont find the time....Postage from SA can take 6 WEEKS!!! I had to bow out of Lesli's card swap and was so bummed! What a great idea...maybe I should start a local one? Love your blog!

RobinDiane said...

Great layout! Oh, how I would love to go back in time and be 34. I'll be 38 in May. Need to figure out a design for my ATC.

Deanna said...

Love the ricetta and the layout, as always!!!

My email addy is:
creationsbydeanna@sbcglobal.net

Happy almost birthday! I wish I were turning 34 again! Sorry to hear that Dianna willed those new residents to appear on your upper lip... She is ruthless!

Have a great day and take care of you!

Kelly said...

Ok, count me in!! I've never done this before and it sounds like fun and I WON'T let myself get stressed over it! :)

My email is klauser95@yahoo.com

I turned 35 back in December and honestly don't feel that old, I'm a kid at heart. But damn, those wrinkles are showing already!! LOL

Rita said...

Amy, would it be okay if I joined?? I'm a friend of Christi's and Carolyn's and would love to be a part of your group if you don't mind.

Just let me know! My email address is whimsyrmb@yahoo.com

Thanks!!!

Judy said...

Cute, cute layout.

I've sent you an email with my email address. Are you going to have a cut off time for entering the challenge so we will know exactly how many ATC we need to make?

Lester R.N. said...

Hey Amy. I would say yes to your swap but already I have a problem with rule # 1 ( you know following through!) Hope you have a good weekend. Talk to ya later!

Melissa said...
