ATCs, Cards and Extras, Saturday April 17th 2010



Artist Trading Cards (ATCs).

I have received some super ATCs recently. My ATC/ABC Group have sent me some and I have had one other from a new lady I've found to swap with:

This is YUD, the 10th letter of the Hebrew Alphabet and it is from Lynn Cohen. Thank to Lynn's comment, this is now the right way round!!



On the back of this ATC is an explanation about this letter:


We are all learning a lot about the Hebrew alphabet!

I have also received M for Monster from Cat in Florida:


Isn't he just wonderful? The colours are brighter than it shows here and the blue much darker - I think the sun was bright when I took the photo.

Cat also enclosed all these lovely goodies for me to use - how super, thank you so much Cat.


Mim in Ma, USA, sent me 'N for Nose'. This is the outside, then you open it to:

All these great noses! I absolutely love it. Thank you Mim. It came in this great 'turtle' card:


Finally, I received an ATC from another American lady called Judith and it's quite beautiful:


Thank you Judith, I do hope we can swap again. I sent Judith one of my two puffin ATCs which she has now received.

Lots of lovely goodies. It's so exciting collecting the post from our box now as there is often some surprise for me.

Garden

It's been another dry mostly fine day today so it's been out in the garden again. I took quite a few photos yesterday, which I will post tomorrow.

I start a new challenge with Bea on Monday. Phew, it's all go.

Have a good Sunday everyone.

Glad you enjoyed your YUD and learning some Hebrew! But just so you know the purple spiral should be on top and the other point should be pointing down. Shift the card round one half resolution to the left and you will have it right. :-)

I love the MONSTER and the Noses and yes, the last ATC is quite lovely!

These are so much FUN! Wow, I'm enjoying seeing all the different ideas and materials being used. So much better than receiving bills!

(p.s., most of my comments are from Ces....hahaha)

Thanks Lynn, kj and Bella. I've emailed you. I thought so Rachel!

I do have a lot now Bea. I must get them better organised in books or something.

I love the turtle card too Heather and all my ATCs!
