Celebrate Spring ATC Swap...

 Finally I was able to participate in an ATC swap with Kimberly of ArtJoyStuff blog. I have always wanted to join in on this fun as I always heard such raves from others who participated. I got my swap package.  Thank  you Kimberly for hostessing this and for doing such a wonderful job.  Everyone was so right!
This postcard was included in the package.  Kimberly took a tag she created and added a doily, buttons and  a ribbon bow to have the postcard reflect her style.

This beautiful butterfly tag was tied on the package.  I love butterflies and Celebrate Spring was the swap theme.  My six for six ATCs were wrapped in a lovely sheet of scrapbook paper...hmmm future projects.

 Here are the ATCs I received.  I adore them all.  Each one so unique and beautiful. The Celebrate Spring theme was definitely followed by these creative talented people.  Thank you to Sylvia, Lynn, Liz, Troy, Karen and Danielle.  I simply feel spoiled with these additions to my ATC collection.

Here is the next swap that Kimberly is hosting.  April in Paris.  Did you say that in your mind or did you sing that in your mind?  I always sing it.  Check out her blog for details as you still have time to enter.
I have loved ATCs since I discovered them.  The size of a standard playing card...2.5" x 3.5" is such a fun size to work with.  Other than size the possibilities are endless for artistic expression.
Now I must leave my computer and get outside for the limited non rainy snowy day we are having.  Mr. C and I will be planting a couple of new David Austin roses to enjoy.
Happy Spring and Birds that sing and all new growth and flowers and joyful play to each of you...


  1. Happy Swapping my dear friend! Everything looks as adorable as can be.
    I wish you a wonderful week leading up to Easter xxx

  2. Lovely ATC's. Spring is definitely here. I see some growth on my hardy Canadian Explorer roses.

  3. Oooh your ATC's are wonderful! I love them too. They are what got me into blogging! I started about 8 years ago and have boxes and books filled with them. It was really fun to host and be a part of all those fun swaps. Glad you're having fun too!

  4. Wonderful ATC's. If I wasn't doing TAST, Chikan, and StitchMap classes, I think I'd join. I know you'll have fun with the Paris theme.......

  5. They are all so great. I have wanted to try this kind of swap one day but have too many things going on right now. Happy Spring!

  6. Well...Looks like my friend has been up to par in the craft dept with the ATC's.
    Always love seeing your creative juices flow!!!!
    Have fun,

  7. Hi Sherry
    Your ATCs are all gorgeous - what a wonderful idea Kimberly has established.
    I love your gorgeous nest from dear Vicki - it is adorable isn't it and so beautifully displayed by you on the pedestal.
    Thank you dear friend for your recent visit and lovely comment!
    Hugs from Suzy

  8. What a fun swap! Each one is so cute. I missed the previous post somehow...That nest is so cool! Even cooler that hubby got it!


  9. What beautiful ATC's! Each one is just gorgeous!

  10. You really received some great ATC's. Oh David Austin roses, be still my heart. I saved to buy some...finally planted 5 and WAS loving them dearly...until the deer ate them right to the ground. So sad.

  11. I love to see all the different swaps. they show such a variety of styles but they are all beautiful. I particularly love the birds nest at the bottom centre but each one is gorgeous.
    Thanks too for your great comment on my post yesterday, its good to know from peoples opinions where to go with the sales of the collage sheets. Now then, your page has inspired me so i may do a little art tonight
    hugs June x
