ATCs DOWN MEMORY LANE

ATCs are another Collectors item I was introduced to by my friend Di. These little gems measure 2 1/2"  x  3 1/2", they are placed in envelopes to post as they are so small and would surely get lost if not 'purloined' along the journey!!! It happens, I cannot tell you how many Postcards go missing, I have had loads 'nicked' and loads never arrive, it is a shame people feel they have to spoil others fun like this. That's life as they say!!!!  Anyway here are my gorgeous ATC's received from others...
This first picture is to show you the sizes of
Postcards -- 6" x 4", 
 ATC's -- 2 1/2"  x  3 1/2"
Twinchies -- 2" square
Inchies -- 1" square
Enjoy...

the other numbers never arrived -
I left that group, too many no shows...
 White...
 The following ATC's are ones in my stash ready to send to who ever...
 These were duplicates of ones sent out...
 I was quite proud of this one, it is the first one in pik above,
it rolled up like a drawing, to reveal the old fashioned dresses...
 the theme was 1930's...
 My beloved trees get done on ATC's too...
 and of course I use my Embellisher machine too...
 I made these little envelopes to send them in,
this then goes in a normal size envelope for the post box...
Hope you enjoyed the ATC show
********************************************
Something a bit different,
 I entered a swap for Bookmarks and these are the beauties I received,
they do get used sometimes but I don't want to spoil them...
aren't they gorgeous
**********************

Well that's it for all my Postcards and ATC's and the like, I am still swapping with people and hope I always will. If YOU wish to swap with me, do get in touch as I just love making these and receiving them too. My Postman would be pleased to!!!!
Just email me or put a comment here and we can sort the address out later. I do post abroad so no problem there.

I love ATCs, the size is just so right for a small piece of artwork. You are going to need a bigger house soon as you continue with your swaps.
