Roni is hosting a Cat ATC Swap so I decided to join in. These were fun to make - relaxing because I wasn't trying to achieve anything in particular, just having fun playing around with my scrapbooking supplies. If you click on the photo below you'll get a close-up view that lets you see the card details - texture, brads, etc.

When I first heard of ATCs I wasn't sure that I wanted to make any because I didn't know what you were supposed to do with them after they were finished (other than trading them). Turns out you can use them on greeting cards, scrapbook pages, etc. Lots of people collect them & put them in notebooks using those clear plastic pages with pockets that are usually used for baseball cards.

After making the first couple I decided that I like making them after all. It's very relaxing. There aren't any rules other than the size & keeping them flat enough to fit into a plastic sleeve.

If you've never made one give it a shot! You don't have to be a scrapbooker - even if you're at work & just have an index card & a pencil you can make one! Go for it!

Some of these are the cards I ae for it:

Thanks! They were fun to make.

I can't wait to see the ones the other people in the swap created. I'm expecting them to arrive via mail by tomorrow.
