If you think 3 heads are better than one when it comes to making ATCs this is the place for you.

We are a fun group of ATC makers who like to spread the making of ATCs around to more than one person.

Here is how to get started……………..

First you sign up in the thread and tell us what themes you do not want so I can add your name to the list in the 1st post.

Next you PM your mailing address and any dislikes to me so I can add it to the address list. I will update this list as players come and go or change their status.

If you wish to take a break from playing at any time all you need to do is post in the thread if you want to let everyone one know and send me a pm so I can make it official by changing the list. I will move you to the HOMERS ONLY section of the address list until you ask me to change it. This way you will still get any you have started that have been completed by others but you should not get any new ones. If you do get new ones, please let me know in a pm.

To keep cards from being sent to inactive players I will move you to the HOMERS ONLY section of the address list if you have been inactive on the site for a month. Once you become active again you can pm me and ask to be placed back into active status.

And here is how a Round Robin works…………

Player 1 starts it off by starting 3 cards. These cards need to be more than a preprinted background. Please put something on them. On the back please put ATCS FOR ALL RANDOM ROUND ROBIN or AFA RANDOM RR at the top (so we know where it came from as there are 2 round robin groups) along with at least your user name. Mail all 3 cards to Player 2.

Player 2 will work on the cards. Add at least your user name to the back. Mail all 3 cards to Player 3.

Player 3 will finish the cards. Add at least your user name to the back. Keep 1 card and mail the other 2 back to Player 1.

Player 1 will keep 1 card and mail the other one to Player 2.

VERY IMPORTANT ~ Please remember to look at the most current list before sending cards to anyone to make sure they are still playing.

EQUALLY IMPORTANT ~ Please check what cards a player DOES NOT WANT. Do not send unwanted themes to anyone as they must pay to send them on to someone else .

If you get a set of cards and you have no idea what to do with them, just send them on to someone else.

Feel free to post eye candy whenever you want. Part of the fun of being in a Round Robin is seeing who is doing what. You can post them when you get them before you add anything, after you have added something or when you get a completed set. If you don't have a scanner or are not sure how to post them it is ok. Posting is not a requirement to join and have fun. There are no Round Robin Police sent to visit if you don't!

And you never have to say who you are sending to unless you want to.

And last but not least…………

iTraders: They are fun to give and fun to get so please remember them. Once you have a completed card you can give them to both the other players. When giving them you are the trade.

I'm here, too. This is my first time switching to a new thread like this -- is it because there's a 1,000 post limit to each thread and that's why you start a new one? But otherwise we just continue as usual?

Got a starter set from Nancy yesterday and a starter set (with some homers) from Allegrae the day before.

I know!

I took over from Chardonnay1965 on May 6, 2012! Have seen a lot of players come and go since then. Quite a few that have been around since then, too. Wish I would have kept track of who and when came and went.

Yes it is business as usual!

Not sure why the number 1000 was picked as there are threads with more. Must have something to do with the inner workings of things. Either that or someone just picked a number to give us something to look forward to!

I am sure someone with much more knowledge knows why.

I got the girls home with the bows in their hair, ThouartDelyrias, posted a photo. I haven't decided which one to keep. I will be sending Maggie, the homer from this set, this week. Maggie if you have a preference let me know. I have the red one and the green one.

I haven't been around since then, but it's been quite a few thread changes for me - I think I came in around 4? Anyway, tomorrow I might actually work on the small stack of cards I have waiting (though I have some sewing which needs doing as well, so we'll see how long that takes...)

Wow, Becka and Cinlan. I am impressed and surprised at how the green card turned out. You never really know what the outcome will be when you are starting with such a blank canvas.

I always think of this quote when I am working on the cards.
I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
Michelangelo.

He also said.

The marble not yet carved can hold the form of every thought the greatest artist has.

So I think. "Oh wow who knew PIGLET, was hiding in there?" Or a frog on a bicycle etc. You get the idea, when I get the card back.

Has anyone received/worked on some cards from me that were pastel colors with silhouettes of lake/nature scenes? I can't remember who I sent them to and I was wondering if they were still floating around out there.

Not me!

I do have a set CQ5 sent me with elephants on them. Still have them as I am trying to remember which magazine the elephant pattern I want to use is in. So many books to look through and no time to look!

CastleQueen5
04-20-2017, 06:41 PM
Mary, that does not sound familiar to me.

I got a homer from Jennifer with Cats, and the cutes zebra background with a pink flamingo starter. It just needs a sunflower, kitten and a latte, and it would be a few of my favorite things card. The flamingo does have a yellow flower in its hair. You will know you are my favorite if I send it to you as the third player. As I am the second.

I hope you are all very jealous. :cool:

xstitcher
04-21-2017, 05:56 PM
I am jealous!!


You made me do a double check of the cards I have.

It is you who started them. Background is elephants and trees lined up, with looks like a torn book page across the bottom.

And I think I remember where my elephant pattern is!

CastleQueen5
04-21-2017, 05:59 PM
I am very fond of torn book pages, Xstitcher

I got from Maryfreeman, two starters a beer and very cute soda label.

From Beka, I got a very artsy abstract starter background.

I also got a sewing theme Allegrae started and I will finish,]
and a home a green laugh the good life card. So cute.

Thanks Beka and Mary

Kentuckydakota - got a finished tree card from you (you were first player, then me, then castle queen) - but Heather had already sent me my finished one. I'll send yours back to you with some stuff to work on if you're on the active list...

04-25-2017, 04:48 PM
A thought............

I know there are those of us who sometimes mail cards to the 2nd player to save the 1st player some postage and this is ok except.........

I have heard of a few mix ups with mailing things back lately so...........

how about doing this..............

if you are player 3 and you don't mail player 1 both cards put a note with what you mail letting them know you mailed the finished card to player 2.

Hope I said this right..................

Sending out some sets to: CastleQueen5, Nancy & mrubyjean. I received some sets from Australia but there was no name on the envelope.

maryfreeman, When you say you don't want any religious ATCs does that include like Christmas ATCs? I have a few cutesy ones that I may be passing on; haven't decided yet but you are next on the list so thought I'd give a shout out to you....

Beautiful.

Castlequeen -- dang you are busy!

Yes, I worked on the sets Tuesday and Wednesday. I addressed the envelopes today, weighed them, and licked them, and added tape to the back.

Then today I went and bought the self sealing envelopes at Office Max. I had a coupon for $10 off if you spent $50. I bought 4 rolls of fun masking tape since hey they were kind of free. They were $2.99 each.

I wonder how many calories is in the glue on the envelopes?

I still need to make 12 more starter sets with flower postage stamps, but alas, I ran out of flower postage stamps. I have a photo in my flickr account with some postage stamps I need to complete the sets. I also have many photos of the 40 other sets, I used to start the sets.
Stamps I need (https://www.flickr.com/photos/38366050@N07/34034623040/in/dateposted-public/)
Bottom line if you have used canceled flower postage stamps including sunflower postage stamps. And you are sending me cards, of course. Could you include those stamps?

Got 2 sets from, I think, Mesektet (the envelope had no return address, but was posted from Tara, QLD, Australia) to be finished: one started by Angelmuz & worked on by Gumbek, the other set started by Gumbek and worked on by Prayer_at_night. Mesektet hadn't worked on either and I believe she's now in the homers only section.

Got a set to finish from BekaH (begun by Jennifer).

Got 2 starter sets from CQ5, as well as a finished set begun by me and worked on by maryfreeman0622 (will get yours out tomorrow). Slightly confused by the another set CQ5 sent me - one that I had begun and sent to her to work on, which she did, but then sent back to me without a 3rd player. Will send that set off to someone to finish.

Just got back this evening from a week at Lake Tahoe so I'll get to all the CRRRs that I received while away ASAP. Laundry comes first, I'm afraid. ;)

I just love what you did with the adventure card. I loved this rubber stamp, but was feeling limited by its possibilities. Wonderful work.

In case others cant tell the rubber stamp is the entire image, the window and potted plants, and fits just inside the atc 2.5 x 3.5 area.

Ancient Planter

Thanks, CQ5. That was a difficult one to figure out what to do! It's a beautiful stamp. My contribution was the Adventure quote and using chalk to make the sky blue outside the window.

Also I got 2 sets to finish up (I think one was from CQ and one from um, someone else) and a starter set from Tandy. I've already worked on them and homers going home.

mrubyjean

And I thought the set was so pretty, I didn't want to do too much so I use glitter pens on the flowers, words and window frame and added the sunlight yellow.

05-24-2017, 03:24 PM
I took some photos of some homers.

Beach Seagull is Spinnabul, Nancy then me. I mailed Nancy's home to save Save Spinn, the postage.

Man fishing is Allegrae, BekaH then me. I sent both homers to Allegrae, so she can pick the one she likes.

FLapper is Jennifer, Nancy and me. I already had an envie set out ofr Nancy so I mailed hers home, They were all the same anyway. I plan to see Jennifer Friday at a live atc swap. I hope. I will hand hers to her then.

and well not sure about the last set, the WOMEN, I will be back when I find my saved card, it will have the swappers on the back. I mailed bothof the cards to the players. Probably cause I had an envelope started for both players.

On top of that, I have a few more sets I never even took photos of that are going home. A bird SING to ancient planter, and Beka
A travel one to KatelNorth and to Ancient Planter.

I never found my card with the wild red haired woman. I mailed off the envelopes today. Speak up if you remember being the starter or the second. AnYWHooo.... I mailed off both them to the players, cause I had a envelope to them started anyway.

I also mailed off a envelope to MRubyjeans, It had a homer.

CastleQueen5
05-26-2017, 01:21 AM
Ok found my card of the wild red haired woman, the other players were Nancy and Ancient planter, so I mailed one of to each of them, since I had an envelope started for both.

I returned home from a week at my mom's in Los Angeles to find many sets to work on, including 3 different sets of CQ5's playing cards with floral stamps (all 3 to be finished), 2 starter sets from BekaH, a starter set and 2 to finish from Allegrae, and a starter from Spinnababul. I plan to get to all of them this weekend, except for one set. It's called "Vintage Mail" on back (Spinnababul's), & on the front it's a Father's Day theme. Father's Day is difficult for me as my dad bigamously married his pregnant girlfriend a week before my 1st birthday, and left us (my mom who was 2 months pregnant and my 6-year-old brother) a week after my 1st birthday. Dad's pregnant girlfriend gave birth to a his son 3 months before my mom gave birth to my younger brother. My parents were finally divorced when I was 4, and my father divorced his bigamous wife 3 years after that. I could go on and on about what a terrible dad I have, but I know others have had worse so I'll leave it at that. Suffice it to say, I'll pass along the Father's Day themed set to ... ? Anyone have a great dad who'd like to work on this set?

BekaH
06-02-2017, 01:22 AM
I'll work on the fathers day set, ancient planter. Sorry to hear of your misfortunes with your er "dad", crummy situation for sure.

CastleQueen5
06-02-2017, 10:24 AM
I had a great dad, he died in August last year after years of fighting leukemia. I was there when he took his last breath. In reality he was my step father, I was 15 years old when he married my mom. I left home at 2 years later, at 17, to go to college.

Lets just say I had father issues for a long time. I do understand, Ancient Planter. A father's betrayal affects us deeply. It also affects how I saw God. I saw him as a disinterested absent father. Hmm, I also saw him as punitive, as I was afraid of my bio dad. Lets just say things are way better now. My god, promises to be a father to the fatherless, and he has. I know you follow a different path AncientPlanter, but I hope these words can fit into something you believe and you can find healing and peace. I thought about sending this privately, but I think many of have been hurt and wounded by our dads or stepdads.

Allegrae
06-02-2017, 12:47 PM
I think the Father's Day one must be mine, so apologies! I've been making a bunch of Father's Day cards, as my dad died just over a year ago after a long bout with cancer. We, too, had a very rocky relationship. I was lucky to have a few uncles and mentors over the years who guided me through challenging times.

Whoever has that fat little monster kid; I'd love to work on an ATC set with him if you feel like doing another set...

Mary, I have to tell you a story about the set you titled Goats. That is actually a deer & a boy deer at that; I cut his antlers off so I wouldn't take up the whole ATC/tree part of the ATC. I think the goat Nancy added was kind of hilarious.

maryfreeman0622
06-03-2017, 08:16 AM
LOL - NOW I can see that it's a deer! Sorry about that. The goat is indeed hilarious.

The fat little monster kid is mine - I can send a starter to you with him. I have several stamps of that type - maybe I'll send a couple sets? Should I stamp him on a plain background or what would you think?

I have some fun stamped images like those too, and I got thinking I should start some starter sets. I think I will next week.

I think I will stamp them but not color them, and put them on a patterned background. That way someone can color them, and someone can add the extras.

Oh my, I sure thought that I added a deer...I thought goats had beards...but what do I know, I have lived on ocean beaches and canals for 36 years.. The funny thing is after I added the deer/goat I got out my pencil paints to add some antlers then decided not to.
and am sooo glad I didn't. Castle Queen I got 5 sets of your APCS today and they are awesome. I will add the #3s and have them in the mail to you Monday!

Today I got 3 starter sets from BekaH, a starter set from Jennifer along with a homer set and a finished card. I'll do my best to get to them, but am still kind of loopy, plus we're having our carpets cleaned at 9 am on Wed. & I've got to start moving furniture and packing stuff.

Does anyone display their cards at home? I almost want to create a display for these and take it to my desk at work. These cards should be viewed and enjoyed!!!

I got 2 sets to finish from BekaH - one started by maryfreeman0622 and one by Nancy Myrick. I think I will pass along the angel/Christian one -- any takers? Speaking of the angel one, Beka, did you put the sparkle in her hair & on her wings? It's lovely! What is it? It looks like a pen. If not you, then Nancy?

My family will be here to take in the mail so none of my swap cards will be sitting anywhere but in my house waiting for me but none of them want to monitor the threads for me so they will be inactive for 6 days.

Hope no one needs to go to homers while I am gone. If you do make the announcement in big letters in the thread and I will take care of it when I get back.

I will be checking here until Tuesday afternoon so if you need me before that for anything send a pm.

Just because I could and I have a few minutes, I looked back to see when I took over taking care of the CRRR. It was May 2012, which means I have been at this for over 5 years!!!

It has been fun. I have moved a lot of names around and off the lists in that time. And I have collected lots of fun cards. Someday we should all count our RR and post here how many we have.

I hope to get back on the active list when I get back from my trip. I miss finding partially finished cards in my mail box and trying to figure out what to put on them.

I have a couple of sets that will be finished when I get the old iron out to back and finish the cards for the Fabulous Fabric Swap I am sending to everyone along with their returns.

So far the count of cards I have to make there is 31 and I think I am about half finished. Of course there is still a month to go for signups so the total could go higher. It has been fun and now I can make them without looking at the pattern I made which means I can easily work on them during the drive to Texas and back home as long as I have light.

Wow! Purrfect is awesome! I have made 12 starters with cats heads on female bodies (mailed 5 today) and it is going to be so fun to see what this great group of artist adds.
I suppose that I am weird but I make up "stories" about my ATCS and this one look like she just went in to the party and saw Mr. Tom dancing with some alley cat!!!!

I just a got a Disney flounder rubber stamp in a bag I bought at a thrift store. I had no idea what I was going to do with him. But seeing your card mary is so cute. I can see now how useful it might be. But still maybe I will just trade him off.

I have a wee stack of cards to work on, sitting here making me feel guilty, and FINALLY this weekend I think I will have a chance to do lots of crafty stuff on Sunday. Been really busy lately visiting different universities with my second daughter, who has to apply in the autumn term. It's interesting, but takes up a lot of one's weekends. Anyway. I have high hopes. Watch this space, as they say!

Your art is always worth waiting for Kate, I love sending to you. I love sending to all the overseas players, cause you have different ideas, or maybe I just think you do, but I tend to love your cards and creativity.

No one should feel bad if they have cards for awhile. Things happen.

I just found a couple of sets I was sure had been finished and mailed, but there they sit at the bottom of the pile of cards I need to take care of so ............. things happen and they will be sent out soon.

I am loving the cards I am seeing. I hope to be back to playing soon. Just a few more ACTs for my swap and I will be sending out another update moving myself so if anyone else wants any changes let me know.
