8/18 UPDATE-- YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THE 2ND CHALLENGE. There seems to be some confusion with this part of the swap. Only 1 of your groups needs to relate to you. It can relate to you in ANYWAY, it doesn't matter.
My first theme is collage. I decided to do a collage using daylilies.
I will post a picture of this ATC and then tell how this collage ATC relates to me
If you still have questions, please send me a pm

2ND CHALLENGE-if you dare to take it
One of your ATCs must relate somehow to you personally.
For example: Kateroo did some ATCs that were of her father, GrammaP did one of Brewer's wharf in ME (owned by our grandfather) I have done a couple of Aruba (my favorite vacation spot). You can post your little story here on the thread along with a picture of the ATC once you have it done.

8/13 ALL UPDATES WILL BE POSTED HERE SO CHECK NOW AND THEN
If you think that your theme is way too hard, please let me know and we can pick your number from a reserve list. That's not saying the new theme will be any easier

Are you ready for another ATC challenge?
Actually, there will be 2 challenges this time around.

Many of the people that have participated in my ATC swaps along with those of GrammaP’s, want to be in any new swaps we open. Because of this, some groups are almost full. If you haven’t been in any of my swaps before, please read everything carefully before you commit.

I have a list of 25 different themes that I have put together for each group that I open. Each of these numbers has a theme ****igned to it.
For each group you sign up for, you will pick out a number from 1-25 and once that group is full, I will post the corresponding themes next to the person’s name and number. First come, first serve in regards to numbers (after myself and GrammaP of course). I will have my DH pick my numbers so I can be challenged also.

Anything goes as far as technique, color, and embellishments.

I will reveal the 2nd challenge after all the groups are full and the themes are ****igned. I promise it won’t be too difficult. (Sketch, color, technique, what will it be????)
You do not have to do this but I think it would be nice.

ATCs are 2 ½” X 3 ½” mini works of art that you decorate as you would a card. PLEASE, PLEASE use at least 2 layers of cardstock for your base to ensure the sturdiness of the ATC. Do your best work and make sure everything is trimmed and glued well.

We will be doing 12 ATCs per group. You will keep 1 and send 11 to me.
Due Date is Oct 15th. This is the last day for me to receive your ATCs, not a last mailing date. I will be strict with this. If life happens and you need to drop out, please let me know as soon as possible. Pm me for my address anytime if you don’t all ready have it.


IMPORTANT—Please subscribe to the thread and check in every couple of weeks. If I don’t hear from you, I will send you reminders until I do. Please realize that I am not trying to be pushy but want to make sure you are still in. You must have a good swap record. As in all my swaps, I have the right to refuse anyone if I think it will jeopardize the swap. This may seem harsh but part of my duty as hostess is to take care of my swappers and make sure they get what they signed up for. This eliminates stress for all of us. If you have any questions, fell free to ask.

Make sure you sign the backs of your ATCs. Most artists include a title, their MB name, date and number of card if it is part of a series (e.g., 1 of 12). Package each group in a separate baggie labeled with the group number and your MB name to facilitate the sorting. Please remember to add a return envelope along with postage. If you want me to re-use your same packaging, just send a return label and the postage.
FYI--- For those of you who do lots of sets, I have found that you can fit 4 sets of 11 or12 ATCs in one of the small USPS Priority Boxes. Cost is $4.95 (less if you do your postage online.)
I can do your return Priority online, including DC for $4.85. Include a note letting me know how you want shipping done.

Thanks for the heads-up, Jean. I didn't realize there was a new message board.
I'm hoping to send out my ATCs early next week, but will let you know when I do. I'll post pictures when everything is done too. BigGrin

Does anyone know if internet explorer 8 is the better explorer to have now? With the old board it didn't work well.

JeanP thanks for the update. I had no idea that there was a new board.
I have not finished my ATCs but did get some work done today on them. I finally found a charm that I needed for my design after weeks of looking. YAY me.

Jean - I posted mine today. I know there are still a few weeks, but I sent them airmail as I always get stressed about them arriving on time.
Here are some pictures too! The first is for Group One. My theme was "Through the Window". I recreated a stained glass window, which I printed off on vellum. It ended up a bit darker than I would have liked. I chose this in memory of my Gran, who passed away this past February. I remember visiting her once when I was about 12. We were walking to church one Sunday morning, just the two of us. I remember seeing the church surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of daffodils. It was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen - the bright yellow daffodils contrasted against the old stone of the church. Daffodils are my favourite flower to this day.

The second card had the theme "Stars". At first, I almost asked for a switch as I've done a lot with stars lately. But, I figured that this was meant to be a challenge so I was not going to wimp out! I used to teach for about 15 years, and loved putting stickers on papers. I would use them for everybody. If a child failed a test, I would put the sticker next to a question that was done correctly. Each child is a star in his or her own way, and each child shines in a certain area. I also used the name Katy on the spelling test as I was always called Katy growing up. I was initially going to do a math page, but the font I had chosen did not have any mathematical signs. Anyway, I figured the "sun, moon, stars" fit the theme better anyway (although the moon is not a star).

I don't know why this is a duplicate post, other than it said I had to wait 54 seconds to post and I did and now there are two.

Wow, an new MB! I'm so behind!

Kate, as always, your ATC's are above and beyond! Did you just sign up for 2 groups? I did, and so I'm hoping I'm in the same 2 as you. :)

I got my atc's finished a long time ago, said I'd sent them, and they sit on my counter! JeanP, mine will go postal in the morning! I will go take pictures of them now and post pics soon.

Take Care,

Gina

You actually have to make it a favorite. You should see a "Tag as favorites: in the upper right corner. Click on tht to save it.

Now to find the favorite afterwards, you need to go into MY TOPICS. You will see all the ACTIVE Topics posted since you last logged in. You will also see FAvorite Topics. That's where they will be.
Not as easy as the old MB but it is okay.
