Christmas Swap Card by Sandra @ Babycakes Doodles & Designs

This is my Christmas ATC Swap card(above)
I created it for my swap partner Lisa Johnson....Lisa is a good friend and my partner in Wymzee Art Friends Blog. She has a termendous liking for animals ( cats, dogs, deer, skunks, peacocks, etc. LOL ) She loves them all !
Unfortunately she lost one her cats not to long I thought this cat would be a fun memory for her. I still have one swapper that I do not have a picture to show you all. ( Debra Schoch...Hop Hop Jingle Boo). She had a few problem. We will see her work at another time.
So this is my final story....about the Christmas ATC Swap Cards....we had 14 wonderfully talent ladies join the swap. I like to THANK each and everyone of them.
The holiday mail made this swap a little hard...but we made it. It's over.
I have some wonderful other ATC swap for them.
Everyone that received a gift from me... (7 lucky folks) I do hope you all enjoyed them.
And Thank you to Liz and Keni for both of your wonderful gifts. These two ladies mailed me 2 wonderful ATC cards...which was a unexpected treat. And they both were beautiful.
Well on to the next swap as I said is...coming soon. Join as a follower so you will know what going on here.
Or drop by and see.
Takecare...and Happy New Year to All

What is a ATC Card ?

What is a ATC Card.....A new friend asked me this earlier today...made me think...Some folks style never heard of ATC Cards...of ACEO.

So here are some places you can go see , what they to make them...and folks that are top of the line ATC Card designers. Abnd a little info to help you all understand ...and learn about this blog...

They can be made only in 2.5" x 3.5" size only !!
Painted , altered art, a print of something, multi mediums, some are made of metal, , basically you can make them out of anything you want.
You can swap them, trade them, or sell them.
If you have anymore questions ...just ask with a comment.

See how to make a ATC card here :

One of the Top of the line ATC card designer here:

Folks that sell ATC Cards here:

I did an article for Prim Sister talk radio show about ATC Cards...
Go here and listen to the Archived #39 show....
by Babycakes ATC Cards....

Hope this gets you to try this up and coming art form...there are over 2,000 ATC cards auctioned on Ebay.... and lot on Etsy . Try doing a search and see what you find out.
Very easy collectable art.

Remember to vote on what kind of ATC Swap you might like to join in on.
