Some of My ATC's

An ATC is an artist trading card. They're fun little pieces of art that anyone can do. After my friend Joy from Joy To The Blog introduced me to Swap-bot, I got addicted. I've had a couple of people ask, so I will post a few of my ATC's here for public consumption.

I've scanned in a copy of every ATC I've made (except for the one I sent to Joy!). Some of them I'm proud of, some I'm embarassed by, but it's fun to see how I've progressed.

My very first was about me & my bi-polar/depression/anxiety disorders.

This I made for my friend Lynnette while she was going thru a tough divorce.

My first Swap-bot trade was muppet themed.

The last one I think is the prettiest one so far. My ATC's are still very simplistic, but it's fun to learn as I go. Hopefully I'll be able to get together with Joy & Diane once soon starts so they can teach me some of their mad skillz!

BTW, you should check out Diane & Joy's blogs, they both have awesome Etsy shops, tell 'em Mimi sent ya!

Thank you for the sweet shout-out Pam! My favorites are the one you made for your friend {the bee} and the last one. The Grover one is too adorable!!

I would love to get together soon at a place where we can spread out all our ATC-making crap for the afternoon!
