ATC Birthday swap

This year I have been involved in a Birthday ATC swap run by Kate North.

There are 32 of us in the swap and each month we send an ATC to the people who are having a birthday in that month.

In theory when it is your birthday you will receive 31 ATC's-one from each of the other members.

Here are the ATC's that I have received so far--I haven't named who they are from mainly because it was so time consuming arranging them and scanning them that I decided to take the easy way out.

There were people from Australia- the UK-the USA-New Zealand-Spain-the Netherlands and Germany.

As you can see the techniques are varied---------

There is patchwork -needle felting-stamping------

Mixed media------

and collage---------

and beading-------------

This has been an enjoyable swap and I am glad that I have been involved.

What a great idea Doreen, and lovely surprises for each member on their birthday. Your collection of ATCs must be quite impressive and these are all beautiful and so varied.

Beautiful ATC's! Now, what are you going to do with them? Create a Birthday wall hanging? or something else?

ATCs are getting better and better! I have a nice collection, but they are all in a box because they don't fit into one of those swapcard albums, which I would have thought would be a good size.
