** Postal! ANCIENT ATC SWAP - Due May 22nd - **
Iíve had such a lovely time participating in swaps with the talented ladies on here that Iíve decided to host another one of my own. I LOVE history and I find that many ladies on here enjoy it as well. Iím so eager to see the talent that will come from this swap! This is an Ancient ATC 5+1 Swap! Are you fascinated by the Pyramids of Egypt, the Coliseum in Rome, Terracotta Soldiers in China or the Castles of Ireland? If so, then this is the swap for you! This swap is not limited to structures, however, so use your imagination! Maybe Nefertiti here or Julius Caesar there! :D I've hosted this swap before; the talent and imagination from it was unbelieveable!

Use stamped images, collage by using magazines or pieces of books, use ephemera that you Google or download, hand draw or paint....the possibilities are endless! I welcome (but NOT require) you to number your cards on the back, i.e. 1 of 6, 3 of 6, etc. I also ask that you to please put a signature/stamp on the back so we'll know whose art we're admiring.

No Vendor product requirements...however, please use at least two layers of good quality cardstock so you have a nice firm base for your ATC. Please do your very best work and swap something you think someone will be pleased to receive. One embellishment is required, but youíre welcome to use more than one!

This is a 5+1 swap- meaning you will send in 6 images and receive 5 in return; the +1 is for the hostess, thatís me! You will not receive one of your own cards back so please make one for yourself.

GOING POSTAL: Place your ATCís in a Ziplock bag with the Swap name, your real name and your SCS name. Please send a self addressed stamped envelope with the same postage as it took to send to me plus two extra stamps just in case itís needed. DO NOT send metered postage as we all know they only work for day of purchase!

No sign-up deadline, but must be received by 5/22/2012. I will try to send them postal by 5/29/2012. (I will keep you ALL posted if that day changes). If you need to drop out, that is fine; life happens but I don't have the time to PM 20 people a few times to see if you are still in the swap. PM me if you have to drop out and Iíll let everyone know and do the proper adjustments in the original post. ;)

Please donít hesitate to post questions to this thread. I welcome all swappers to post messages and make friends during the swap. Most of all: HAVE FUN! I know I will!

* Please PM me when you're ready to send so I can give you my address *

Hope you join!

When I get time, I'll post the pictures of the first ATC swap on here so you can all see the previous artwork. ;)

LittleScrappy 03-20-2012 11:36 AM

Oh My!
Come on, gals! I don't think you ladies realize the wonderful ATC's you'll get from this swap!

Am I going to have to post pics? *Gasp* :mrgreen:

LabradorDork 03-20-2012 12:24 PM

Oh my!! I love the sound of this! I'd love to join!!

P.S. I'm totally not opposed to you posting some pics! :)

paper73 03-23-2012 02:16 PM

Mine are done!!!! King Tut is waiting to come and join the ages. Please PM me your address. Hope you fill the swap so we get a great deal of golden oldies!!!

paper73 03-30-2012 05:27 PM

Where has our hostess gone????

LabradorDork 03-30-2012 05:28 PM

I hope she is okay!

Amaranthine 04-02-2012 06:31 AM

Maybe on vacation? I was planning to start these today. I'm not nearly as speedy as Barb! :) Now I'm wondering if the swap is still on and if I should make just 4? Any news would be welcomed.

LittleScrappy 04-02-2012 09:15 AM

Sorry gals. I've been sick. I'm catching up now...don't worry! I won't forget about my Swapping Adicts! :-)

EDIT: Thank you for your concern. Sinusitis & Asthma don't mix. :-(

LabradorDork (cute), can I get your real name for the Swap? Thank ya!

(The SCS website was acting crazy when I was trying to get on here earlier. I mistakenly PM'd Barb twice! lol)

paper73 04-05-2012 08:29 AM

Yeah, I got both of them. Glad you are feeling better and back in the fight. Hope we can get more swappers. This was really fun and very, very easy to do. The subjects are just boundless.

Indeed! ;)

The website was giving me some issues when I was trying to get things done. It seems like it's working pretty good now, so I'll try to upload some pictures on here. I have to find them in my binder! Yes, I have a big binder filled with ATC Cards from swaps that I've joined or hosted. :mrgreen:

My first swap of this type was filled up pretty good! It seems as though people aren't swapping as much as they used to. I always had to Bump up the thread because of the many different hostesses.

I hope we get more addicts as well....

paper73 04-09-2012 07:56 AM

Bump......more swappers out there???????????

paper73 04-13-2012 12:54 PM

Need to bump to the top. Need more swappers. How about those pictures???

doraevatt 04-16-2012 05:42 PM

one ? are we talking ATC's or cards?

LittleScrappy 04-17-2012 09:30 AM

ATC's, Dora. :-)

I'm going to take the pics tonight, Barb. I was out of town and I've been sick. :(

doraevatt 04-17-2012 03:49 PM

doraevatt 04-19-2012 07:43 PM

Hello, Joanne! It's a pretty fun swap...thank you for joining! :D

LittleScrappy 04-26-2012 09:06 AM

Just an FYI: I can't download the pics from the last Ancient ATC Swap-- the files are too big. I'm trying to figure out how to shrink them- which isn't easy because I have a new operating system on my laptop...

Thank you for being patient....


doraevatt 04-27-2012 07:18 PM

Hello, just bumping in and working on swap

LittleScrappy 05-01-2012 08:25 AM
