Welcome to our 5th in a series. If you missed the first 4, don't worry ... there will be plenty more in the future!

As is our custom, we will make 3 ATCs & receive 3 ATCs back. Each ATC will be Sender's Choice, plus be different from each other but with a twist. Here's what we'll do this time around:

Card 1. Add a doily, or a piece of doily if it is a big one. It must be at least partially visible.

Card 2. Add a letter. Again, the theme is up to you, but pick a letter & make it stand out on your card. Pick a different letter than the previous swaps. (Maybe we'll end up with an entire alphabet when we're done!)

Card 3. Add a ticket (or 3).

So this swap is essentially Sender's Choice ... with a Twist. Just follow the basic rules & make it pretty & non-offensive.

The usual rules apply: an ATC is a small card, 2-1/2"x3-1/2" & decorated by painting, drawing, mixed media, fabric, etc. ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. You can choose any medium in which to make these 3 cards. This is a little piece of art you create & then send to a partner.

Back your cards with a light cardboard, such as a cereal box, for a bit of stability. And, on the back, add the swap name, your name, your Swap-Bot name, & the date you made it, to each ATC. Please also add your address to the back -- at the very least, your town & state or town & country. (I enjoy looking back at the ATCs I receive & see who made them for me. So if your name & at least your town/state/country is not on it, I will never know where it came from a year from now.)

Remember, you must send something to be proud of, as these ATCs will be added to your partner's collection of ATCs. In return, you will get 3 gorgeous ATCs to add to your existing (or new) collection.

Make each ATC different -- no carbon copies here! Use different materials & spice it up!

NOTE: slapping on a sticker or 3 does not make an ATC! And neither does pasting on a picture. You must do something creative to it! Any questions, please PM me.

This swap is open to all members with a 4.98 or higher rating. (And, honestly, we don't have any members with lower than a 4.98 rating.)

Do not disappoint me or your partner by not fulfilling your obligation to send 3 lovingly-made ATCs.

But, most of all, have fun!

About doily/ticket - is it OK to have them painted/drawn or do they need to be pieces of actual items?

I’m not the swap hostess but when it says to add something (without restrictions) that generally means as long as it’s recognizable as a doily or ticket that’s fine.
