acceptance of life and what it brings.

I must be crazy, I've joined another ATC swap through Addicted to Scrap in Southport on the Gold Coast. This makes a total of 4 live ATC swaps and I'm a member of 2 ATC groups online through Yahoo of which I have joined 1 swap. I uploaded some pictures of my ATCs onto the ATC_World Yahoo Group site and have had interest from 2 people overseas. Today I sent off 2 ATCs to Sue in Oklahoma USA and 3 ATCs to Kate in North Yorkshire UK - I am so looking forward to receiving their cards from overseas.
I counted the cards in my collection today and now have 106 ATCs made by me and others. It's incredible how quickly my collection has grown, since I only started creating these miniature artworks since January 2008.
The Scrapbook Cupboard put out a challenge for our husbands to get involved in the creation of ATCs and make 10 cards. At first Ferg was adamant he was not getting involved, but then last night as I was creating "Zentangles" and watching TV, he got out our little fold up table and had a go. I don't know about him making 10 cards, but here are the 3 cards he created last night ... I'm pretty impressed:

By the way, I found this great site on the weekend where you can buy loads of bits and pieces perfect for ATCs - the shop's called Scraptivate and they sell a huge range of Collections Chipboard (more than I've seen in any other store) and a range by German Scrap that I just loved.
