Hello blog friends! I hope your day is going well. My day started ultra early today about 2:45am when my dog decided that he wanted to go outside. Once I am up, I am not someone who can go back to bed. So today with an extra cup of coffee in tow, I am writing this post early and making the best of my early rising.
Today’s post features two sets of ATC cards that I made from Donna Downey’s 2011 ATC card kit of the month club. Each kit included specialty supplies other than ink and adhesive, etc. as well as instructions to make each ATC. I purchased all 12 kits, but thus far only have completed two (not good). I am unsure why I have only completed two months, as each kit can be assembled in just a few short hours. Perhaps, it is due to my unfamiliarity of ATC’s and their purpose in general? For those unfamiliar with the term, ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. ATC”s typically measure 2 1/2X 3 1/2. Many online forums and Yahoo groups host various ATC themed swaps. Each kit or swap typically has an associated theme and Donna Downey’s ATC kits were no exception as shown below.
I have found that since I have started to blog my creations, this has inspired me to complete several of my unfinished projects. It is now in writing that I will in fact complete the remaining 10 months of ATC kits I have awaiting completion and will post them here as each kit is completed. Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you come back again soon.
