ALPHA-2P..(DECEMBER 09).. ATC swap

Post by Guest on Mon Nov 30, 2009 5:25 pm

December 2009
This is the continuation of our ALPHA-2 ATC swap
. . . . . . . . . . . . . Alphabetical ATC swap.
This months (December) title will be: ALPHA-2P. . . . . . folowed by ALPHA-Q-R and so on.
This ALPHA-2 started in September 2008 and I will run this swap for the full alphabet.
Each month will have a 'Sign Up By Date' and a 'Get It To Me Date'.
To join in you will need to make 4 portrait style identical ATCs (or as near as possible keeping the colours the same).

ATCs must measure 2.1/2" x 3.1/2" an International Size
Not just computer print-outs please, they must contain some crafting technique, so as to be fair to everyone.

. . . . 'Sign-up by date'.. for ALPHA-2P = . .Tuesday December 15th
. . . . 'Get it to me Date' for ALPHA-2P = . . Thursday December 31st (because of Christmas and getting them returned the date will be later)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The reason for making 4 ATCs is, so that when your swaps returned you you will receive your own Number 1 of 4 (1/4) back each month and 3 of other peoples to collect. This gives us all chance to collect 4 complete alphabets whilst keeping a memento of our own Arty work to peruse for further ideas.
If you save the received swaps in a 9 pocket collectors page it is nice to able to view a 3 month swap on each page.

Top of the list this time Karelyn, you beat Steph.
You must have clicked on as I clicked send.

I think the CHARITY theme will be interesting this month, as we all have local charities as well as the popular national ones.
I hope that you will all try to make them look a little like an advert for your chosen charity if possible.

Sorry they will be late this month but with Christmas and New Year it was to be expected.

Thank you all for joining in.

Friends, I was just going to put your -PINKYs- in the post box opposite my home,
without a P.O.P. receipt.

I have done this as the post office is the other side of my town and the roads are not safe.
We are 10 degrees below freezing outside in my garden this morning.
Please let us all know when you receive them.

Photos coming up later today (with a bit of luck).

A bit of luck
I was just going to our front door when our regular postman came down our drive.
He took our PINKYS with him as he was going back to the PO in 2 hours.
So we know they will get that far.

ALSO
Unfortunately, when I was taking the photos of ALPHA-2Ps one must have dropped on the floor it is missing on the photo.
Cynthia it was your ALPHA-2P. A lovely Peacock Feather. Sorry about that but perhaps you can put your own photo up.

All PINKYs posted today. Here are your ALPHA-2P ATC,s.



Top row = Me Teabag, my title = Penguins and Polar Bears, I R Stamped onto thick card, cut them out and dry embossed them from the back. I drew the icebergs first, before siliconing them onto the card so they keep their shape.. Barbara, title = Poppies.. Steph, title = Pink Elephants, decaupaged. (Very pretty 'Motherlove')..
Middle row = Sz, title = 'P' at The Beginning. A Kinetic one. This has a lilac dry embossed background with opening jigsaw-puzzle doors.. Helen G, title = Pizza, Aa decaupage pizza complete with its topping, (I love this as I could eat it if it wasn't for high cholestral, grrr. it is hard to be good!!).. Amullree, title - Patchwork Panel. It speaks for itself..
Bottom row = Thriftycrafter, title = Poppy on Paisley. A nicely raised poppy head making it very appealing.. Joy, title = Ponsettias, very bright and attractive.. Di, title = Perfume, it look really feminine with its little white bow..
But there should have been a picture of Cynthia's lovely Peacock Feather. My mistake number 1 this year

Mine came today, I have Cynthias beautiful, classy Peacock Feathers, Penguins and polar bears (global warming) by Nona, these are cleverly shaped and the shading is very good. The third one is by Suzie filled with lots of p's, it's great opening the (puzzle) gates to discover more underneath.The diamonds are embossed too, poppy, pixie, puppy, pawprints, piano, puzzle pieces, pretty pants, pear, pram all on pale purple.
Perfect, all of them, thank you girls.

It's not a problem - I just thought I had missed it/couldn't find it.
Hope my envelope has arrived safely.

Got mine yesterday and they are all great. I got 2 from Cynthia, one with the peacock freather and one about Coronation Streets first episode. Then there was a beautiful one from Steph. It was a decoupage christmas sceen and that one is going into a frame. Great one from Di, could have done with those bottles for the chrissy perfume I got. Great colours as well. And finally one from Nona which is a really good one about charity. Thanks everyone.
