If you are here for the blog hop, you can find my “Giving Back, Giving Flight” blog here…but feel free to visit here as well! I’m showing off my granddaughter!
I don’t think I’ve ever posted a blog about ATCs BEFORE I do them, but this coming up one is special.
Probably most of you know what they are, but just in case we have new visitors today, ATCs are Artist Trading Cards – little 2 1/2″ x 3″ works of art that a group of us trade every month. Each month there is a new theme. And you can do them in whatever medium you want. There are only two rules – the size, and you have to trade them, not sell them.
We’ve been doing it for nearly a year, and it is so much fun.
But what makes this next month special to me is who will be participating.
My granddaughter, Hannah – age 7, blossoming artist – is really into art. She LOVES the ATCs and every month tries to bum them off of me. This time she asked if she could do it with me. So, I went to the group to see if anyone would like to trade a card with her, so she could do it, too.
The response blew me away! Very shortly, 7 of these special ladies had volunteered to trade a card with her! She is over the moon excited, and already thinking about what she could do for the theme “Harvest.”
Normally, I would wait until I had my cards ready to share to post about them, but I was too excited – I had to share the good news with y’all!
But, rest assured, you’ll be seeing them when they’re done. Heeheehee!
