May ATC Swap: Summer Fun

I love Grandma’s farm in the summertime!


The Globug Ideas Artist Trading Card (ATC) Swap for May was all about summer.

It was my first attempt at organizing a swap and I enjoyed a one-on-one swap with a lovely lady from Colorado, named Dawn.

The idea was to think of something about summer that makes us happy and stamp, draw, paint or collage it onto a 2.5″ x 3.5″ card.


My ATC was based on pure fiction–visiting my grandma’s farm in the summertime. My grandma didn’t live on a farm, but if she had I sure would have LOVED to spend my summers there!

This funny little rooster image has been in my collection for a couple of years and I’ve always wanted to use it.

I dug into my bag of feathers and gave Ronnie Rooster a real tail!

Oh, and that nasty smudge in the bottom corner happened at the very last moment–wouldn’t you just know it? But, it was fun to  make and I can’t wait to see what Dawn sends me!!


June ATC Swap: Take me away…

Why not join in the June ATC Swap? The theme is “Take me away…” Make your ATC about some place, real or fictional that you would love to go to…A beach or a bingo hall? Paris or your parents’ house? Sailing or a ski resort?

The choice is yours!!

    I keep watching the mail, everyday, for your ATC. Can’t wait!!!!

    The June ATC Swap, “Take me away…” is going to be fun, too!!


  2. I received my ATC in the mail today. I felt like a little kid waiting for my Highlights magazine. It is beautiful. Love it, Love it, Love it…..
