Thanks, Crafty, Tellurien, and Marie! I had no idea what to do with those elephants for a while!

Speaking of mailing, CiCi I JUST mailed your stages today... Oops... :-)

CiCiCreates
08-08-2016, 08:12 PM
Ooops? You mean you mailed both cards?

Marie
08-08-2016, 10:07 PM
Oops, I meant to mail it days ago... :-)

CiCiCreates
08-08-2016, 11:13 PM
Oh, OK! It's fine, I think I lost track of the time, since I didn't even know what you meant! I'll let you know when it arrives.

Sure that would be great

Marie
09-06-2016, 05:35 PM
For the HD/HP group. Right now it's a study in browns, but feel free to add color.... I'm just playing.

CiCiCreates

CiCiCreates

I'd love to try, Marie! Fun concept!

Crafty3790

Can I join in on both please?

Linda4atc
11-06-2016, 03:38 PM
Sure you can join! I added you to the first post.This list is there to make giving itraders a bit easier. All Buddy cards are done as private trades. You can show starter sets here in the thread and request other sets from people. Getting addresses is done through pms when both parties have agreed.

I still have this pirate hand drawn set if you want it? link (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1806355&postcount=375) And I think I still have a couple mixed media sets I never scanned, just have to remember where I put them.

Its yours. :) Sorry for the double post, my internet is so bad. I didn't think it went through because I couldn't see it. I deleted the first one.

Crafty3790
11-11-2016, 11:54 AM
Marie here's the finished cards which do you want?

Marie
11-11-2016, 12:36 PM
Really cute Crafty! They both look great! The one on the left please? :-) Thanks!

Crafty3790
11-11-2016, 01:08 PM
Ok will send it out.

CiCiCreates
11-14-2016, 03:19 PM
Marie, here is our "Artist" collaboration - hope you like it. Let me know if you have a preference.

Marie
11-14-2016, 04:36 PM
CiCi, these are wonderful! I've been staring and staring at them trying to see if I like one better than the other and it's very hard to choose. I think I slightly prefer the one on the left? I love the way you left her work unfinished because she is still working on it. What a pleasant scene... ahhhhhh :-)

CiCiCreates
11-14-2016, 04:40 PM
So glad you are pleased - it was really fun to do! I will mail your choice in a day or two (along with our personal trade one).

Marie
11-23-2016, 02:03 AM
I started these cards for the Altered Selfie Swap, but ended up going an entirely different route for it (see my gallery). Now I have a LOT of incomplete cards. I even made duplicates to practice on. Would anyone like to add your 'selfie' to these cards? Or finish them up in some other way? Let's play!

CiCiCreates
11-23-2016, 12:50 PM
Marie, those would be so fun! You could send me a set to finish - any but the blank canvas one. Those are so cute!

Marie
11-23-2016, 01:18 PM
Haha CiCi! Had enough blank canvas for a while? ;-) And you're SO GOOD at it too!
Will send out the brown set tomorrow. Many thanks. This will be fun!

BexMadeMe
11-23-2016, 03:36 PM
Marie can I play with the set on the left please??
With the pink backgrounds.

Marie
11-23-2016, 04:37 PM
Bex, you've got it!! I'm going across the pond!! Can you hold my photo up and let it look out the window?!?! ;-) Thanks for playing. I'll mail the pink set out to you Friday. (No post tomorrow).

Bex, you've got it!! I'm going across the pond!! Can you hold my photo up and let it look out the window?!?! ;-) Thanks for playing. I'll mail the pink set out to you Friday. (No post tomorrow).

Marie, I could even take a photo of you in England, and I may even take you sight seeing around Wolverhampton :laugh:

I'll look forward to receiving the cards.

Marie
11-23-2016, 07:37 PM
Like Flat Stanley! This is going to be fun! I can't wait to 'see' the sights!!

Marie
11-23-2016, 07:40 PM
For the HD/HP group. One set is an altered selfie that I started for another swap and then got a different idea. The other shows the joy of finding the perfect piece of art… what that consists of is up to you. ;-)

BexMadeMe
11-29-2016, 04:42 PM
Heheehee Marie what do you think?? Pick your card.:laugh:

Marie
11-29-2016, 05:35 PM
Bex these are FABULOUS!!!!!!! You knocked it out of the park!!!! I think I like the bottom one a bit better (I have a waistline and there is definitely a pub involved). These are so awesome!!! Thank you!!!! I'm having so much fun in England with you!!!

BexMadeMe
11-29-2016, 05:41 PM
You got it Marie and Cheers!

Marie
11-29-2016, 05:44 PM
I still have two cards left looking for buddies. This one and another altered selfie(shown post #557).

CiCiCreates
11-29-2016, 06:31 PM
Bex, those turned out great! I'm working on mine now, what a fun idea this was!

IamWhatonearth
11-29-2016, 08:07 PM
Lurking for now, I might play later. :)

CiCiCreates
12-05-2016, 02:52 PM
Marie, here is our "Recording Studio"! LOL! Do you have a preference?

BexMadeMe
12-05-2016, 03:13 PM
Such fun cards :-)

Marie
12-05-2016, 05:45 PM
Carol those are great!!! I wonder what we are singing? It is definitely a hit with me! LOVE the matching (almost) outfits. I think I slightly prefer the one on the bottom. High 5! Thank you!!!!

CiCiCreates
12-05-2016, 09:12 PM
I did hope it looked like a High 5. It was really fun, glad you like. I guess the sound guy thought we did good, or we wouldn't be high fiving. I will get it in the mail ASAP.

Marie
12-11-2016, 01:20 AM
Bex and CiCi, both cards are here today!!! And they're even better up close! Bex, LOVED the card you made from ours as well! I am delighted with both of these cards! I'm especially glad that you both joined me on the card. This is my first experiment with 'Altered Selfies' ... and it's been fun. THANK YOU BOTH! :oD

I would love to join the Mixed Media group, please! This sounds like a lot of fun.

Marie
12-13-2016, 10:37 PM
AP--- it really is! So glad you're here. :-)

Linda4atc
12-14-2016, 12:57 PM
Welcome Ancient Planter. It is a lot of fun. To find a buddy to trade with either offer to complete somebodies starter set, or jump in and make some starters yourself. All trades are done by exchanging addresses through pms. Have fun.

Linda4atc
12-17-2016, 10:34 PM
Okay, I said I had some buddy cards done that I had misplaced. Well I found them.

Linda, I'd love to work on the Red Dress, please!

Crafty3790
12-18-2016, 09:19 AM
I'll take the last one

Linda4atc
12-19-2016, 12:02 PM
Awesome! I packed them, the envelopes and stamps. Unfortunately when I got here last night there is a very slippery path from the car to the house. I got a few of the most essentials out. We are expecting s couple days of sunshine. If it is warm enough I'll be able to get out there and figure things out. I will mail as soon as I can. I visiting and am not sure what my schedule will be.

All of you please be safe and a wonderful holiday season!

Marie
12-19-2016, 12:11 PM
No worries! Enjoy your travels!

Linda4atc
12-21-2016, 02:34 AM
OK crazy day, my son and I stayed up till 5am. 2 1/2 hours after we went to bed some construction guys showed up. The owner hired them to repair the deck which is rotting really bad. This cabin is 110 years old! But I could hear their conversations and it is going to be a really big job.

Besides the noise, my son has storage under the house and his stuff may have to be moved (somewhere). It may rain or snow on his stuff. And last is the worst, I heard them talking about cost of supplies and more labor so I am worried they may end up raising my sons rent! And today was his birthday. Send him some good luck vibes please.

I found the cards and my envelopes etc. But I need to see if i can find my plastic sleeves. Not sure if I have all of your addresses, if you didn't pm it, would you?

Marie
12-21-2016, 08:31 AM
Linda, I'll PM you my address. Don't worry about plastic sleeves for me. I have enough for both cards. Just pray it doesn't rain in route. :-) Sending good wishes and prayers for your son. God bless!

Marie
01-07-2017, 01:15 PM
Be aware this is NOT a hand-drawn image. It is a combination of stamps. Fun and easy. Who wants to play? I also still have two painted sets available, ( scroll back) open to either group now as well.

stacy
01-12-2017, 12:59 AM
I've never done something like this but always wanted to try so can you add my name to the HD/HP list

Marie
01-22-2017, 12:12 AM
I hope you like these. Let me know which one you want. :-)

Marie
01-22-2017, 12:18 AM
I still have this set waiting on a buddy. Anyone?

Marie
01-24-2017, 07:39 PM
Stacy, you're welcome to finish my set if you want :-)

ParadoxSketchbook
01-27-2017, 04:17 PM
I still have this set waiting on a buddy. Anyone?
Marie I'll take that set! It looks wonderful, especially in composition.

Can I also be added to both of the groups?

Marie
01-27-2017, 06:26 PM
Great Paradox! Please PM me your address and I'll get them in the mail. Linda seems to be away for a short bit; I'm sure she will add you to both groups as soon as she gets back :-)

Linda4atc
01-31-2017, 04:12 PM
Hi everyone., sorry that I have been MIA. I told all over in the HD RR thread if you are interested. But I am fine, just been preoccupied.

ParadoxSketchbook I will need a pm with all the info listed in rules of the Hand Drawn Round Robin group if you wish to join that.
As for buddy cards, the participant list is just a convenience. It has profile links for doing itraders. But you do not have to be on the list to join in since it's all done like a private trade. Are you wanting Hand Drawn, Mixed Media or both?

Marie Thank you for stepping in to help, you very sweet. Hugs. I love the way you made it look like windows. You pick your favorite, I'll be happy with either. And that rain one is fantastic. It would be hard to know what to add other than coloring it in....

ParadoxSketchbook
01-31-2017, 04:28 PM
Oh... I find the round robin thing a bit confusing to understand so I am not going to sign up for that.
Please add me to the list here for both groups. :)

And I am sorry about your loss... I just went through loosing 2 very important people in my life os I understand how real life can truely make you forget about other things sometimes. I wish you all the best on your road to recovery. I know making art and crafts helped me through some of the hard days. *hug*

Linda4atc
02-02-2017, 04:33 PM
Hiya all. I owe you an apology Paradox. I am terrible at remembering names, even cool usernames. I just dropped into the Steampunk thread and pointed you into this thread, forgetting that you are the same Buddy I was already signing up. But you still get the rep hug from me. LOL

Linda4atc
02-02-2017, 04:36 PM
You are on both lists and I will get a couple Steampunk starters going asap.

IamWhatonearth
02-10-2017, 06:19 PM
Please add me to the hd/hp group.

Linda4atc
02-10-2017, 06:37 PM
Done. If you send me your address I going to try and get some starters going this weekend.

CiCiCreates
02-20-2017, 07:21 PM
I'm back, with a starter set! I will now ask questions, like Marie does. Is this china vase large, sitting on the floor, holding pampas plumes or peacock feathers, or is it small, sitting on the table, with a pretty bouquet? Or....

Marie
02-21-2017, 01:11 PM
Who can tell me what I have found? What are these notebooks? Are they diaries? Art journals? Perhaps someone is making a list? Or planning their flower garden? Is a student doing homework... or penning a love letter? I just don't know… Who can tell me? And what is being kept in these jars? Fireflies? Buttons? Sea monkeys? Again I am clueless… :-) Who can answer my questions and share these cards with me?

CiCiCreates
02-21-2017, 01:32 PM
Marie, I'd love the jars. Pm me for new address.

ParadoxSketchbook
02-21-2017, 02:39 PM
Is it me or do the first 2 cards look bigger than the others? At any rate I would like to work on those 2 please. I'll PM with address.

Paradox, the first two are horizontal. That makes them look larger. I'll be glad to send them to you :-) How is the lady in the boat coming along?

Coming along awesome! I have been trying to find the non-static bag/pad so that I can do embossing on it as that is the only thing left to do. I feel like it is not complete without that touch but I cannot find the pad in stores here. Even Michaels does not have it.. trying to find alternatives right now as I do not order anything online.

Would these need to be completed horizontally then or can they be done vertically?

Marie
02-21-2017, 05:32 PM
Paradox, that's the joy of buddy trading! You can finish them anyway you like :-) Surprise me! As long as it's hand-drawn/hand-painted

Marie
02-24-2017, 09:10 PM
Still have one set needing its secrets revealed. Is this an art journal, a math workbook, a diary? Is someone playing hangman or writing a letter home to mom? Taping in photos of friends perhaps? I'm clueless as to what is going on here. Do you know?

CiCiCreates
03-05-2017, 07:51 PM
Here are your "filled" jars, Marie. Which would you prefer?

Marie
03-05-2017, 08:11 PM
Carol! I love them!!! Either jar will delight me thoroughly!! Thank you so much!

CiCiCreates
03-05-2017, 08:12 PM
OK! Will send it out in a couple of days.

Linda4atc
04-04-2017, 01:11 AM
Love those Firefly jars. I saw my first fireflies only a couple years ago when I visited my sister in Tennessee.

Marie your open book starter is wonderful. If they are still available I would love them.

I have starter sets!!!! IamWhatonearth and ParadoxSketchbook I owe you both a huge apology. I just couldn't get motivated to make the starter sets I promised you both over a month ago. I do not know if you are still interested? I will pm you. I also made some Round Robin sets, two of which are steampunk. I have my original sketches for all these starters so I would be happy to make any Buddy a set.

Does anyone want to fill my vases, from post #593?

Linda4atc
04-04-2017, 01:38 AM
Sure, I took a couple moths off from almost all art but I am back. You send them to me now or with my Seahorse Homer if you want. :D Have you moved since June? If not I have your address.

CiCiCreates
04-04-2017, 01:51 AM
Yes Linda, moved in January. PMing you now

Marie
04-05-2017, 12:21 PM
Linda, you've got them! And I'll take the black cats please. :-)

Linda4atc
04-08-2017, 01:53 AM
Sure I can send them to you. Is your address the same as it was last May? If you have moved I'll need it.

Marie

I finished my buddy card set with Linda4ATC! You can probably tell but I did everything other than the seahorse. lol

I didn't want to miss my mail man today so I've already packed up the one on the right to be picked up. :D

Marie
04-15-2017, 06:27 PM
Iam..... that set is great! What a clever idea!
Linda, I've got our set finished also. Which would you prefer?

CiCiCreates
04-15-2017, 07:36 PM
Very cute, Marie!

Marie
04-15-2017, 07:49 PM
Thank you CiCi... you know what's on my mind! ;-)

CiCiCreates
04-15-2017, 07:59 PM
Oh, now it's really cute! (forgot about that interesting theme for a minute - this fits right in!)

IamWhatonearth
04-15-2017, 08:07 PM
Thanks Marie!

Linda4atc
04-20-2017, 02:21 PM
LOL both sets are awesome with wonderful surprise themes. Marie I think I like the wall on the left better. but either one would make me very happy.

Linda4atc
04-20-2017, 02:22 PM
I still have Route 66 and the dolphins available.

Marie
04-20-2017, 09:53 PM
Linda, I mailed yesterday because I hadn't heard from you! I'm not really sure which one I sent. I'm really glad you like them! I was trying out ideas for my " Unlikely Friendships" swap. :-)

Linda4atc
04-21-2017, 12:42 AM
Not a problem Marie. They are both great. I am trying to remember to check in more often,

Linda4atc
04-21-2017, 01:58 AM
Here are the vases that CiCiCreates started. Which one would you like? there is actually more color than what shows on these scans.

CiCiCreates
04-21-2017, 02:05 AM
Love them both, Linda! The color of the flowers compliments the color of the vases so well. I might prefer the first one (left side) just slightly more. By the way, your seahorses are almost ready!

Linda4atc
04-21-2017, 01:16 PM

Well, the darn post must have done just that! I mailed them on the eighteenth, same time as Marie's. She lives back East and you are just the next state over! It may still arrive, just very late! Kfaye and I thought she just wouldn't get her swap returns from my Nusery Rhyme Swap since it had been 4 weeks, but then they did arrive on the fifth week....go figure!

Those trellis cards are wonderful. Great job ladies.

I am just not being very consistent about checking in online lately. If any of you would like to get my phone number to call or text me if I'm needed here, or to just to chat (lol) send me a pm. Also if there is anyone that is interested in taking over as thread host send me a pm. You all deserve someone who is more involved. The contact people on my profile can also call me. Hugs

What is happening with the blue umbrella? Is it a standard umbrella protecting someone from the rain? A beach umbrella providing respite from UV rays? An umbrella-shaped hole in the wall through which the ocean waves can be seen? I'm curious? Who can complete this story?

CiCi, I finished your set. :) Let me know which one you'd like. I hope you don't think I changed your part of the card too much by outlining your bears! I just thought it'd look strange if only the background was outlined and the belly needed to be covered to look like sushi!

Originally, I was thinking of putting them on a blanket or falling from the sky but then I realized that I only needed one more card to fill my "Cute Food" page so I figured why not make the teddy bears into cute food?

My additions: outlined everything (including her bears), all of the sushi parts (including the wrap across the belly), all of the background.

Has anyone done a 3 card buddy card set yet? As in with 3 artists?

And here is a copy of one of the cards from the buddy sets that Marie posted:
She started this set off (left image) and I finished it off (right image)

Making inchies helps! This is my goal now to here on just fill a bunch of small drawing sinto one ATC. I pretty much made boxes with a pencil that were roughly inchie sized then treated each one as it's own drawing.

So yea - Marie if you can share your secrets on how you made the sketchbook that would be awesome because I really love that background.

Marie
07-27-2017, 12:08 PM
Haha Paradox, that card was amazing and detailed!!! The sketchbook is the easy part! Just border the blank card so the sketchbook has a surface to be on, draw your spiral making sure to include the holes it's going through. I like to include a little bit of the adjoining page as well. Draw a couple lines close together under the spiral to be the edges of the pages and shade appropriately. I like to turn up/shade one corner too. This lets you show more pages and the inside of the sketchbook cover too, and makes notebook look well used. Easy enough... then you come along and ... BAM. It becomes a real journal page. Linda did an awesome one as well. :-)

I have a question? I got a new computer system in January & for the life of me can't figure out how to scan or post pictures to the thread & don't really have anyone to help me learn. Is it possible that I can do blind ATCs? I always try to do a good job but just have no way of scanning them. Can I still play in MM if I can't scan the ATCs? I really would like to try this.... Thanks for any help or info....

Marie
07-27-2017, 11:35 PM
FG... I hoard mine through my phone. That being said.. it's still not easy. I don't see why you couldn't play blind as long as your 'buddy' knows and is okay with it. Some folks might not want to, but many wouldn't mind. :-) I'd play with you. :-)

Oh well... I actually hadn't thought of that because I kept thinking you used some magical tools to make the spiral so neat. Thank you for sharing that method - be warned you might see it in the future plenty of times from me as I really loved the idea of not having to deal with a background every time I draw something! It really is clever to just put a sketchbook there as nothing is better than the materials we use for a background. :)


In fact... I just rocked you both!

And thank you kindly for that! :)

Just glad that I can help keep the thread going as I find the entire concept quite unique! :)


That's wonderful Paradox! I hope you enjoy it! Linda, I'm so glad you'll still be around to buddy up with. :-)

Blind Trades: for just anywhere on this lovely site I believe the rule is "make sure the other artist(S) knows that is is a blind trade and you'll be fine" so yup you're all good to go! If you need technical help then feel free to PM me (I am the IT for our department at work so no biggie).

THAT brings up something... I know the gallery says the "size" limit is 500 KB but does anyone know the dimensions? I keep trying to upload an image that has multiple cards in one and it refuses to accept the image (it is 487 KB).
