November Blissfull ATC Swap

I've a new love in my life... Artist Trading Cards. I'll be trading once a month with a group over at Blissfull ATC Swap.  This month's theme was "open" so it seemed like a nice time to join.   Here's my November  ATC titled "Autumn Beauty".  I made 3 of this card as similar as possible seeing as some of the papers are patterned.  The leaves came from my stash, some stamping (for background and a few I  cut out around the image) and some from the SLICE using the "Back to School" design card.  I inked the edges with a variety of colors.  The "Tiny Type"  alphabet stickers are from Cosmo Cricket.

ATCs are only 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".  This means all the bits and scraps I've been holding onto are finding a creative outlet.  Yay!  I made a card to send my ATC with.  Bazzill Dotted Swiss "Rope Swing" as the base.  Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type stickers and "Togetherness" Collection for the strips. Inked edges.  Ribbon from my stash.
For You Card
Inside I made a four corner holder for my ATC.  (It can easily be popped out if desired.)  The pocket on the right came from my local library!  They're cleaning due to some remodeling/expansion and were giving them away!  Happy day... They said I could take as many as I wanted!  I put extra leaves in the pocket for my swap partner.  Thought it might make fall last a little longer for her.  It's always to short for me, tis' my favorite time of year.

And this is what Wendy sent to me!  A gorgeous ATC in pale purples with the right amount of sparkles.  I have a fondness for pansies... my first pet rabbit was named Pansy.  (I was 4 and Bambi was a big deal!)  Also in the envelope was a pocket filled with patterned papers and a variety of fun small trinkets!  Perfect for more ATCs! 
Blissfull ATC Swap "Open"
I'm having such a creatively good time that I'm organizing a swap for Rubes and 5 other young people.  I'll post Rubes's first ATC soon.  She swapped with me this month as well...and deserves her own post.   Next month's Blissfull theme is "Angels"!  Heavenly.  Ah.....
