Link to Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tfbalding/sets/72157629362572251/) to see everyone's lovely leggy gals!

Any size, shape, species or color, girls just love wearing stockings. Fishnet, stripes, dots, stockings of all kinds. For this swap lets play with those lovely little accessories! On legs, arms, or even in their hair, the idea for this swap is to show 'em wearing and loving 'em any way you'd like!

The Rules: cause without 'em, there'd be anarchy! ;) :goofy:

1. All cards must be standard size 2.5"x3.5" ATCs
2. All cards should be protected in their own sleeves when mailing.
3. Each card must be different and original, no duplicates, please.
4. No sharp/hard embellishments please (they will cause the postal machines to eat your cards and we don't want that).
Also, collage & mixed media cards should be well constructed (meaning all of your bits and bobbles stay where they belong and do not fall off). I am NOT a collage artist, though i do enjoy a well made collage piece, but if your pieces are falling off i will have no choice but to return the card to you as i don't know how to fix them.
5. Well made Digital work IS allowed (as in digitals that show thought and creativity, and are printed with both quality ink and card stock). Note that i am not a digital artist, either, but if i have questions about a piece i will consult another digital artist.
6. Send in only your best efforts as that's what others do and what they expect in exchange!!!
7. Since this is my 3rd probationary swap, we are limited to 30 players. Please don't sign up if you are not serious about playing. Anyone who signs up then dissapears without withdrawing by the date noted above (April 1st) WILL BE GIVEN A NEUTRAL ITRADER.
8. Cards received after the due date (April 20th) will be returned to their owners. I have no intentions of waiting for late cards, as it's not fair to the other players, and will be swapping on time.
9. And finally, host cards are never required, but any received will be treasured and dearly loved, drooled on, and pawed at for eternity. :wub:

Mailing Directions:
-PM me when your cards are finished and you are ready for my address.
-US Players: Send SASE, business size, with enough postage to cover your returns.
-International Players: I will cover postage for the first 10 who sign up. All others please send a well concealed $1 US and a Large & clearly printed address label. Please don't let the $1 stop you from joining us if it's a problem, though. PM and we can work something out. :)

When you receive your returns please be a doll and leave an itrader for your Host (me) and Rep (You Rock) points for the players who you received work from. The players list will even be linked to make this process easy! :)

Ok... i think that was everything. Now, who wants to create some lovely ladies in stockings with me?

TF Balding
02-29-2012, 08:05 PM
If you don't have any objections i'll post them to the thread for you tomorrow. :)

TF Balding
03-01-2012, 11:58 PM
Ok... so today was not my day. First off it started with a phone call from the boss ("Do you know you're supposed to be at work right now?") 15 mins before my alarm clock went off. Thank you peeps for changing the schedule while i was off and not telling me! :eek: Soooo, ima post those pics for slashdog tomorrow, lol...

Ok, nuff bout that! Cause i got pretty gals from Evalila today! Even better IRL!!! :wub:

TF Balding
03-03-2012, 01:04 AM
Leggy ladies from Onaki came struttin in today! Gorgeous as always! :wub:

TF Balding
03-03-2012, 02:13 PM
Ok, sorry it took so long. But here are slashdog1's lovelies:

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7182/6949570353_e57421b0d5_m.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tfbalding/6949570353/) Slashdog1's Girls (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tfbalding/6949570353/) by TF Balding (http://www.flickr.com/people/tfbalding/), on Flickr

I'm about to post a link to the flickr set I made for this swap. I find it really amusing and inspirational to be able to see everyone's work all in one place & I thought I'd share that with everyone else. :)
(if anyone would not like their work posted in such a public manner, please pm me.) I'm photographing each set as they come in and posting them, each labeled to give credit to their artist. :wub:

03-03-2012, 02:43 PM
Woo! Joss and slashdog they are lovely legs!!!!
You've got nothing to worry about! They rock! Oh and there's a thread somewhere to help putting pics in your gallery, or ask there's always someone helpful online :D
I don't mind tf I like to see them all together too! :D

TF Balding
03-06-2012, 09:59 AM
Good morn'n y'all! Howzit goin? Anybody got any goodies to share? :)

03-06-2012, 10:13 AM
I finished my first card...well it is actually two cards that fold open. Not showin' it till they are all done. Muhahahahaha.

TF Balding
03-06-2012, 11:21 AM
Awwww Debs! Don't tease us like that! ;)

03-06-2012, 02:33 PM
Ooh I agree with tf your a tease debs! :D

03-06-2012, 05:32 PM
Well I was going to post some, but my gallery is full. Deleting is SUCH a nuisance!

TF Balding
03-06-2012, 06:10 PM
I agree with ya there! Idk if its the same from a pc, but on my cell phone every time i delete a pic it takes me back 2 the main gallery and i have to go back thru the menus to get to my own. Such a pain and it totally drains my battery. :( grrrr!

03-06-2012, 06:38 PM
T- It does that on a PC too. grrrrrrrrr

Hoping to start my leggggggs tonight!

TF Balding
03-06-2012, 09:53 PM
Glad i'm not alone then ;)
and yaaaaay! Cant wait to see what ya come up with! :D

03-07-2012, 09:50 AM
Okay, Carole Cadek, the darling, can delete images en masse (either all from a category like Traded ATCs or from a certain date back). So here are my two so far:

A MAJOR AWARD!!! (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=288995) (two cards fold open)

Yes, We Can Can Can (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=288997)

TF Balding
03-07-2012, 11:39 AM
First off OMG THE MAJOR AWARD!!! Debs i <3 you! That's freaking awesome! The CanCan leggies are also very awesome!

Second, how great would it be if we could all multi-select and delete old pics??? I wonder how much of a nightmare that would be to add that option (for the programmers) lol...

03-07-2012, 02:46 PM
I tried fooling around with the delete function and it really is canned...no way to tell the system to delete more than one at a time unless you are an admin and from what Carole said, that function is limited too. Ah well. I upload all my cards to a Picassa database too, so I can dump whatever and still have a public record.

Glad you like the leg lamp. One thing I've always wanted to have ...

TF Balding
03-07-2012, 08:52 PM
Lovely legs from Joss arrived today!

03-07-2012, 09:33 PM
Your can can legs gave me such a jolt...mine are moving towards my atcs so I can get started...love em !

03-07-2012, 09:54 PM
Thanks, Iridescent! here are my other two.

TF Balding
03-07-2012, 09:56 PM
Those are awesome Debs! That red one really pops!

TF Balding
03-09-2012, 04:10 PM
So, what's everybody up to today? Any good plans for the weekend?

03-09-2012, 04:49 PM
ooh those are fantastic!!!

day off from 2/3 kids (out with grandparents woop) so might clean might craft who knows :D

03-09-2012, 09:42 PM
We are waiting for a doe to kid. Only kidding two this year...Maggie had her little buck on March 8...right exactly on the dot. Bling is as big as a house and due any time. Also trying to get the garden ready and dig holes for all the fruit trees and berries we're expecting. Then chickens in April...spring on the farm :D

03-09-2012, 10:17 PM
T- Plans for the wknd include starting the 3rd Hunger Games book! (There is a HD Hunger Games swap going on now... so pumped! You fans out there should join!)
Pixie- Never clean over crafting, c'mon, girl!
Deb- Your life on the farm sounds FUN! I heart animals.

TF Balding
03-09-2012, 11:47 PM
I agree with Laura! Art over cleaning ANY day Pix!!!

And i might have to take a peek at that HG swap... CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THAT MOVIE!!!

And ooooo! Babies Debs! I love goaty-goat babies!!!

I'm off this weekend. No big plans, but ima be workin on a few swaps and finally gettin some art time with my kiddo. :wub: Can't wait to hit the time clock and get outta here n start my weekend tonight!

03-10-2012, 05:53 AM
Finished my atcs, so I'll be sending them soon I hope! :3

03-10-2012, 09:55 AM

TF Balding
03-10-2012, 12:07 PM

TF Balding
03-10-2012, 04:00 PM
Right away! :)

03-10-2012, 04:10 PM
I am tring to build a puppet theatre out of a cardboard box for the kids...as yes we have no puppets sooo fun!

03-10-2012, 04:17 PM
They do look fab! I read a synopsis on wiki! There's far too many books I NEED to buy, my librarys rubbish so that's not an option...

Ooh iri that sounds cool! I'm attempting to make a jack skellington puppet :D

TF Balding
03-10-2012, 04:34 PM
I had a puppet moment a few months ago. Got as far as making hands, feet & a face outta polyclay and painting them... Then I realized I was intending to sew it's clothes and idk how to do that, lol... So the mood kinda passed :laugh: I'm bad about doing that!

And here he is...
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7043/6970368019_8b596480c2_m.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tfbalding/6970368019/) (the start of) a Devil puppet (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tfbalding/6970368019/) by TF Balding (http://www.flickr.com/people/tfbalding/), on Flickr

If any of y'all would like to finish him out for your kiddos he's free to a good home. :) I think he'd make a great villain :laugh: and we could call it a collaborative project! ;)

03-10-2012, 04:46 PM
I did something like that once! I wanted to make adam ant, bought an action man, sewed a frilly blouse, made a jacket...then began sewing gold braid to it for decoration and gave up....he's in a box somewhere taunting me hehe.
Jacks only going to be a paper doll n should fold into atc size all being well :D

03-10-2012, 09:28 PM
Ohhh TTTTTTTTtttttt. There is a box on its way to you. :spinny::v_spin::wacko:

TF Balding
03-10-2012, 09:36 PM
Hmmm... that sounds suspiciously like a bribe, Debs... ok! :biglaugh: :goofy: I'll let ya know when it gets here!

Beautiful cards came in from renren16 today! Even more gorgeous IRL! :)

03-10-2012, 10:18 PM
These lady legs were mailed your way today, T.
All of the skirts open like a lift-the-flap. There are naughty/fun/silly surprises under each one. I didn't write on the back of the cards that they lift, so I hope all the players who recv one of mine have kept up w/ the thread. Pull those skirts up! <she blushes>


03-10-2012, 10:44 PM
locatray those are SO clever. I wanted to do something 3D, but I suck with glue and mine fell apart. :nah:

03-10-2012, 10:45 PM
Tanya...no bribe, really, just goodies for you :D

TF Balding
03-10-2012, 11:15 PM
Omgarsh Laura those are awesome! Can't wait to see what's under those skirts :laugh: in a totally not weird and pervy way of course :laugh: :embarrassed: :unsure: :laugh:

And ok Debs, we'll believe you if you say its not bribery. ;)

Gonna be a fun mail week! Weeee! :wub:

03-11-2012, 12:44 AM
Okies here they are, I'll be sending them out monday! ^__^

03-11-2012, 01:24 AM
Thanks, Debs & T. I'm glad ya like 'em.

( At T - In your best Beavis & Butthead voice: "heh heh, she said 'pervy'" )

Great cards, Panda. The 1st one is my favorite. Innocent.

TF Balding
03-11-2012, 01:54 AM
Those are awesome Chelle! :wub: me likey the harlequin design in the middle!

03-11-2012, 04:44 AM
Woo its been jumping in here!
That is a cute little head TF!

And ooh Locatray and Panda they are awesome!!!

03-11-2012, 08:13 AM
Oh dear...I'm starting to think my brain's wired up differently then everyone else here o_0

My cards are done, but they're more military/goth/punk/whatever you want to call this group. RAWR! Why can't I do pretty/frilly? Eh...at least they're all wearing a stocking of sorts ^___^


Hope you guys like and that they aren't too out of the box.

03-11-2012, 09:01 AM
Kheelan wow!Goth and rock and just wow;) Well done,wish my cards could be as clever as yours;)

03-11-2012, 09:03 AM
They“re great, Kheelan! Especially like the first two:D

03-11-2012, 10:58 AM
Tanya...if I don't get one of Kheelan's cards, I believe I am going to die. In fact, I will die if I don't get them ALL. (well maybe I won't DIE, but I will definitely lay around and mope a little).

TF Balding
03-11-2012, 12:07 PM
Are you kidding Debs? I may actually die just trying to part with 3 of them! Wow! Kheelan doll, I love the way your brain is wired and only WISH mine were half as awesome! :wub:

TF Balding
03-11-2012, 12:13 PM
Woo its been jumping in here!

And yeah, it's been lively in here. I always dread the weekends because it seems like AFA is dead as a door nail and I start having withdraws, lol. So happy my peeps are kickin this weekend! :) (yes, it may be possible that your soul purpose here is to entertain me, lol... J/k) ;)

03-11-2012, 01:37 PM
Tanya,i am ready.Cards uploaded in the gallery,and the envelope will leave Athens tomorrow.Even though my cards seem so silly after Kheelan's awesome work!;P

TF Balding
03-11-2012, 01:48 PM
Voula they are gorgeous! I can already see swap day is going to make me cry, lol, but I'll just have to remember how much I <3 y'all and I wanna make y'all happy with your returns (rather than take them on an extended va-ca to somewhere tropical with no extradition laws) :laugh: I'll be eagerly awaiting your beauties! :wub:

03-11-2012, 02:00 PM
Voula, I love your cards, esp. the one with the lollipop:D

03-11-2012, 02:05 PM
Thank you ladies;)

03-11-2012, 08:59 PM
Kheelan your cards are wicked...and I want the outfit the girl with the gun has...fir myself to wear !

03-11-2012, 09:01 PM

Pm me your addy & i'll pop those puppet parts in the mail. :)

03-12-2012, 10:44 AM
T..I DO live here just to entertain you. :D

I believe we will have to have one of the infamous creamed corn cage fights for Kheelan's cards. I am opening cans of cream corn now. I have been practicing. The dogs love it as they get to clean up after!

TF Balding
03-12-2012, 01:21 PM

TF Balding
03-13-2012, 12:48 AM
I had a full mailbox when I got home today! Locatray your cards are so fun! Idk how I'll ever pick one (and original, and creative... And I'm way too amused with flipping up the skirts!) :laugh: :wub:

And Debs your wonderful set also arrived safely in their "not a bribe" box... Wowza woman! I <3 you! :wubclub: *giggle*

03-13-2012, 10:28 AM
Gonna have to bow out...life has gotten in front of the line and it looks long ...hope someone else can take my place


TF Balding
03-13-2012, 10:37 AM
No problem. Hope things get better for ya soon! :wub:

I believe that bumps Simmo up off the waiting list...

03-13-2012, 01:56 PM
i'll get my cream corn wrasling suit on!! better watch out debs, you'll be hearing corn for weeks! :mask:

03-13-2012, 02:07 PM
I thought I posted about kheelan and lazyshadows wonderful cards....
Maybe I imagined it...
Hehe I think I'd sit there for hours with locatrays cards doing the same thing!

03-13-2012, 05:03 PM
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=290000 jester in some of her many stockings XD mailing out today~

TF Balding
03-13-2012, 05:27 PM
Omg Lyndsey those are amazing!!! Cannot wait to see them IRL!!!

03-13-2012, 05:30 PM
thank you Tanya!! some of them sparkle in real life XD.

03-13-2012, 05:35 PM
Awesome cards Kheelan and Lazyshadows~
I think I'm going to steal your idea Mrs. Alderman for using OCs for these cards. Probably going to be of Helen, Clorin, Para, and Kamichi :)

TF Balding
03-13-2012, 05:39 PM
Yaaaaay!!! :)
cant wait to see!!!

03-13-2012, 06:36 PM
=o omg i cant wait to see Kavka!! i love Clorin and kekule XD their my fave of your characters~

03-14-2012, 12:21 AM
Finished my cards (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=290040) just now! I hope you like them <3

TF Balding
03-14-2012, 12:29 AM
Those are so awesome!!! :wub:

03-14-2012, 01:46 AM
those are great Kavka!!! i love your use of tones and color~

TF Balding
03-14-2012, 02:27 AM
Meee too! I just can't get over how soft and smooth your work tends to be, Kavka. I fight myself constantly when I'm drawing because I am so heavy handed (literally). That's why I line all my stuff with ink... I can't get rid of my dark pencil lines. And even my ink lines are really hard and bold. I love the look you peeps who don't use all the really dark bold ink lining on everything achieve. *sigh* some day I will break my heavy habits...

03-14-2012, 11:35 AM
Sheesh...mine is the opposite problem, T. I do these tiny twiddly lines and envy all you with bold smooth ones.

Kavka, your girls are lovely!

03-14-2012, 12:24 PM
Aw, thanks guy :wub:

If you're having problems with pencils lines being too dark maybe you could get pencils with harder lead? Something with #H should write a lot fainter than the standard 2B.

03-14-2012, 12:35 PM
Kavka beautiful cards as always:)

TF Balding
03-14-2012, 12:50 PM
Good point. I have other pencils but 99.9% of the time i use a mechanical pencil. Its what my high school art teacher suggested for the problem way back when. Time to dig out the other ones...

03-14-2012, 02:49 PM
You can look around on Amazon and it looks like they stock other lead types for mechanical pencils. I hate using non-mechanical (sharpening pencils is such a painnnn!).

TF Balding
03-14-2012, 05:31 PM
Hi Kay! I'd love tohave you join right away, but unfortunately this is my last probationary swap (which means i'm limited to 30 players). I can put you #1 on the waiting list and if a spot opens i will gladly add you to the swap thought. :)

We're still waiting to hear from Simmo about signing on, so a spot may be available shortly.

& @ Kavka: i'm just using an 0.5 Zebra mechanical right now. Any suggestions for something better? I'm all ears! :)

Great cards arrived from Kris10satcs today! They're pretty kool & i'll get a pic of them posted for everyone to see with all of the others asap! :)

TF Balding
03-15-2012, 07:12 AM

Kay Milam that means you're in!

Lovely Legs landed today from PandaCookie & Irva! Awesome stuff ladies! :wub:
Y'all are comming up with the koolest poses and angles for these cards. Every time an envie comes in i'm all excited to see what creativity is gonna pop outta it!

TF Balding
03-15-2012, 03:16 PM
Oh! And Lyndsey your gorgeous set also arrived today! Wowza! :wubclub:

Ps. Irva... when i edited the master list at the front of the thread to show your cards received something weird happened and you dissapeared from the list... but you're still listed in the HTML... idk what happened, but i will fix it asap. But rest assured, i've got your lovelies! I'll also mark Lyndsey receieved when i figure out what happened, lol... just cant really see it well enough on my phone to straighten it out now.

TF Balding
03-15-2012, 08:35 PM
Today at work a coworker saw me working on one of my girls for this swap and asked what i was doing. So i explained the concept of ATCs to him. At which point he got a confused look and asked" They actually trade you for that?" Ugh. He then started to tell me how someone online offered him $100 for a Marilyn Monroe poster he has as if the two subjects were somehow related... Some people, i tell ya... Idk bout y'all, but i totally love trading cards here. I may not receive a mass produced poster for my efforts, but i value these tiny little cards alot more, thanks. I know this is completely off topic, but i had to share it with peeps who'd know what i mean. (And besides, when have i ever tried to keep a thread on topic?) Lol...

03-15-2012, 09:19 PM
There is something about getting an envie full of cards that someone has lavished their time and imagination on that can't be beat. And I just think about how someday I'll have this great collection from famous artist TF Balding and be able to sell a few pieces and retire. :spinny:

TF Balding
03-15-2012, 09:21 PM
:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

03-16-2012, 01:38 PM
Ooh great legs!!!!
Oh I know what you mean, I do have some listed in my etsy shop, but I end up spending what I make on getting more cards anyway, not that I made a lot lol, collecting art was taking too long :D
But I didn't want to waste building up my shop so I put prints on there now and limit each 1 to 100 and my originals come to the swaps :D
My hubby doesn't get the swapping thing either...and if your work colleague wants to flit cash away on art send him my way ;) need me supplies hehehehe

TF Balding
03-16-2012, 02:00 PM
Ok, just fixed the link situation on the 1st page. Irva & Lyndsey are straightened out, lol.

As for my nutty coworker... Idk, I wonder about him sometimes. All of my friends (& most of my coworkers) think this is really kool. I have to bring my stuff to work occasionally because they want to see all the great art I've been collecting. That one guy just has a few screws loose I think, lol.

So, what's everybody doin this weekend? I'm gettin ready for a mini va-ca starting Monday. *HaPpY DaNcE* Today is the last day of school before Spring Break for my kiddo & idk what the two of us will do! (Poor hubby has to work most of it though, so we can't have too much fun without him)...

03-16-2012, 02:04 PM
XD wow some people just don't value hand made art~ its way more beautiful no matter what. you can buy movie star posters anywhere, but Tanya's kinky ladys are one of a kind!! i would sell that poster and buy cards with it~ maybe that's what he was getting to? i'm sure not though.

03-16-2012, 02:10 PM
We've got mil coming tomorrow! Boo! Its mothers day here on sunday and the crazy witch has asked for £20 for mothers day so she's taking the train to come and get it, thing is it will cost about that to get here...she better bring chocolate! 2 of my kids have made me super cute cards at school but don't think I'll be getting a gift, but the cards are enough :D
Woo spring break! We have 2 weeks until we have 2 weeks off from school for easter...hmmm I could guilt trip hubby into getting my more easter eggs lol

And here is Space Lizzie, the card that inspired the "They trade for that?" conversation... Is she really so bad???

Fun cards Irva! And I like space Lizzie. Your co-worker is a dweeb.

Of course, I used to get all kinds of flack about my dog activities. "What are you doing this weekend?" Me: "Standing in a field in the middle of a blizzard herding sheep." That'll get you looks. And that was BEFORE I bought the farm :D

We got out and gardened today. Hoed the rhubarb, weeded the herb garden, and planted an apricot tree. And Rik fixed the hole in the barn wall where the baby goats were hiding (they'd get between the interior and exterior walls...for awhile we just thought they were magic!)

Oh and I named the three buck (make) goat kids Franklin, Delano, and Roosevelt. Franky, Del and Rosy :D

Funny you bring this up, Tanya. Since I have discovered this site in August and jumped in w/ both feet, I have chatted abt it w/ several of my friends. It's interesting how some ppl are totally interested in it, asking questions, etc and others go, "Oh, that's cool" and blow it off, never bringing it up to me again. I have a cousin who comes over to my house and says, "What new cards have you gotten lately?" and then sits down and goes thru my whole binder from the beginning each time. I guess it takes an *artful* eye, huh?! I'm glad we can all share this-- AFA is major FUN! Does anyone else have dreams about cards you're making or swaps you're in? I have them too often to admit.

Lol... at work they know something is wrong with me if i'm not drawing on an atc come break time. The guys usually pop by to see what i'm working on... if it's a pin-up i have an audience, if not then i end up listening to all kindsa strange guy conversations. :laugh: Mostly my female coworkers stop by for a peek then go about their business.

When i get together with my real friends though, they spend loads of time going through my collection, asking questions. The only problem with that is it gives them ideas for things to add to the" I need Tanya to paint/draw me...." list, lol.

Hehe my sisters like that, everytime she sees 1 its is that for me :D
You know what I realised I have 1 *real* friend away from here. I only see other mums at school and they usually blow me off to talk to someone better, not that bothered they're all a bit dull and think I'm crazy spending my time drawing or knitting...I just can't sit and watch tv even harry potter I had to iron and that sucked me in good and proper :D

03-17-2012, 04:17 AM
Oh I got caught up in the rant I actually meant to say:
Those legs are gorgeous irva!!!!
And TF Space Lizzie is wonderful and my favourite shade of green! Me likey green :D
And your co workers definitely a sheep who just wants mass produced art to probably impress the neighbours loland not because he likes it (ooh I got a bit judge mental there,need more coffee)

03-17-2012, 10:18 AM
You all make me chuckle. :jiggy:;):D:yes::laugh:

03-17-2012, 02:16 PM

Three cards done, one to go. It feels so hard to draw legs, I wish I'd have the chance to go to a live model class again.
