Merry Christmas and Thank You

As we draw ever nearer to 'the big day' I have decided to bite the bullet and I am sending the ATCs from the Nov/Dec swap out to you, (despite not having received everyones who signed up.) I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has managed to take part in our swaps throughout the year, I do hope you have had fun.

We will return in January with a brand new swap, although it will depend on numbers to determine whether we are able to continue or not (we need AT LEAST 5 people to join in with each swap, or we will end up getting our own ATCs in the returns!!!)

Have a peaceful Christmas, with lots of festive fun, and of course, a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

November's Swap Theme

Grrrrr! So sorry I'm late with announcing this month's theme, we have been without internet for almost a week...AGAIN! :-(

So, with that in mind, I have decided to extend the closing date until December 10th. The theme will be:


We do of course need at least 5 people to join in, so please let me know if you are interested.

As always, we each make 4 ATCs (3.5"x2.5") to fit the theme, send them to me along with a SAE (large letter) and I will send you a random selection from those received.

The next swap will be January 2012

A big THANKYOU to everyone who has participated this year.

I just had a 'WHOOPS!' moment.....

As I was tidying away and sorting through my crafty bits, I discovered the label from the back of one of my September ATCs! I can't remember who is getting what, so whoever receives the ATC with a 'blank' backside (oooeeerrrr!!) please let me know and I'll pop it in with next month's swaps for you to glue on.

Aren't they great? Don't forget, there's still time to join in with October's swap, the theme is SPOOKED! (See post below for details.)

OCTOBER'S Swap Theme

Whoops! late again! Sorry everyone, I seem to be chasing my tail at the moment.

September's swaps have arrived (just 1 outstanding.) A big thankyou to everyone, they're super, and will be on their way shortly :)

The theme for October's swap will be SPOOKED! Anything that is remotely scary will work, it doesn't have to be a Halloween theme....feel free to put your own twist on things!! ;)

All the usual rules apply, see the sidebar for details. We need a minimum of 5 people for the swap to go ahead, so please leave me a quick message to let me know if you would like to join in.

Thannks to everyone who joined in with the september swap, I hope you like your ATCs when they arrive.

We're BACK with a NEW Swap-Theme


I hope you've enjoyed a lovely summer break, and are raring to go! As promised, we are back after the summer break with a new ATC swap theme. So, what is it I hear you ask...? Well, this month, let's make ATCs with a theme of......

*** MAKE A SPLASH! ***

Interpret this in whatever way you like! As long as your ATCs are the regular 2.5"x3.5" we're good to go!

Just a quick reminder of how things work:
  • Make 4 ATCs (all the same or all different, it's up to you.)
  • Post to me, Ali, to arrive by 30th September.
  • Include a SAE with a Large Letter stamp for your returns.
  • Follow the set theme and HAVE FUN!
We need at least 5 participants to make the swap work, so let me know asap if you want to join us!

Temporary Break...

Many thanks to everyone for your patience, I am pleased to say the May ATCs are on their way to you all, and I apologise for the delay.

As the summer months are fast approaching and everyone seems to be super-busy, we will be TAKING A BREAK for a couple of months....but rest assured, we WILL be re-starting again in September and I'm really hoping you can join me!

June's swap will still take place (hopefully....there are currently only 2 names on the list, and one of them is mine! ROFL!!!)

I do hope you all have a wonderful summer, and I look forward to swapping with you again in September.

June brings a new theme, and this month the title is


now, as you will know, that's the name of a very beautiful painting, but you can interpret it however you like....maybe you'll use the colours as inspiration, or something that happens in June, or maybe something completely different, the choice is YOURS!

Here's a little inspiration:

I do hope you can join us again this month.
