Getting your ATC OK

I have posted how the ATC swap will work for WOYWW8. 
The page is shown at the top of my blog, imaginatively entitled ATCs.
THIS is a link to the page if you want to rush over there.

Postage is expensive and if you want to take part, you only need send one ATC. It is not the law that you send one to me as well, I wallow in the goodwill of the fact that WOYWW qualifies for an anniversary and that we all seem to enjoy it, so please, there's no need or obligation.

These beauties represent a teeny part of my collection.
The trouble with ATCs (if trouble is the right word) is that they can feature anything; as long as it fits on the base card, and can bear the postal system, it will work. I've been trading and collecting for some years now and probably have hundreds of ATCs. I cannot possibly pick a favourite....they vary too much in content and meaning. Strange the things we get attached to.

At some point, the WOYWW Anniversary used to coincide with the WOYWW Crop. It wasn't deliberate, but was a great way to combine postage in some cases. This won't be the case this year, given the months between the two, and that the Crop is the first in our 'one off' locations.  Instead at some point, for those of us attending I'll steal a good idea from somewhere to come up with a souvenir to make and swap at the Crop.
Clear as mud? Good oh. Carry on with your designs then. I haven't a clue what I'm going to do. Again. Some things just don't change.

You have some lovely ATCs there Julia. I am always amazed at what ideas folk come up with and what they can manage to fit on those tiny cards.

Hi Julia, Lovely variety of ATCs there. I could never get into ATCs. I prefer toppers, so you can use them.

Hope you have a lovely day. Sue

Definitely up for the swap. I already have loads as I used to do the swap that Craft Stamper did years ago then carried on with some of the ladies when they stopped. I love them as they are so small they're quick to make that is when the brain is sending suitable ideas out Lol! Have a great day, Angela xXx

Hi Julia, was praying for you, suddenly thought must check how face is, and so pray infection is on mend as it didn't rate a mention.
I'll do an atc too, more if time permits. Am quite sure we'll enjoy them best.
I had a clean up, mmm rather ongoing one, and found a few more to adorn a new cork board I think I might get for that purpose. Saw it today...maybe I can justify it ;)
Prayers for healing. ..and hopefully some sunshine over the weekend.
Hugs Shaz.x

Next time I read a blog, I hope that it won't disappoint me just as much
as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, nonetheless I actually thought you would probably have something useful to
say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you
can fix if you weren't too busy searching for attention.
