View Full Version : My Alphabet III

01-06-2009, 07:56 AM

I am ready to collect another set of alphabet ATC’s. Let me know if you can help :)

Please read:
-Mixed Media, fabric/stitched, or hand draw/painted cards. I am not looking for just an image on a pretty cardstock, or an embellished scrapbook paper.
-The card should have the letter somewhere and an illustration of something beginning with that letter, no words.
-Please think of something unusual. No “A” for apple, “B” for boy, “C” for car, not that kind of thing.
- Post in the thread what letter you would like to make, and what card from my gallery you would like. That way others know what is not longer available.
- You can offer up to 2 trades.
-PM your address, and I’ll pm you mine.
-I have listed what my other alphabets illustrations are so you can think of something different for this one.

Taken, Received

Let me be the first to offer cards.

I would love to make you an E and X. (Not sure if I should say what I am making or not.)

In return I would like either your elephant and friendly tree, or for you to wait until you see mine then make me whatever you want me to have. I will be happy either way.

01-06-2009, 11:21 AM
Sure xstitcher, thanks!

Sure, say what you are offering and taking so everything is up to date.

01-06-2009, 03:36 PM
Sure xstitcher, thanks!

Sure, say what you are offering and taking so everything is up to date.

I am making an E for eggplant and X for X-stitch sampler.

In return I will receive the Elephant and Friendly Tree.

01-07-2009, 12:53 AM
Elena, would you like a P (Pirate with a Parrot) and a Q (Quilt)?
If so, I'd like to trade for Winter Bird and Flowers.

01-07-2009, 08:17 AM
Thanks mrubyjean! :jiggy:

01-08-2009, 02:31 PM
I'd like to do "T" for "Tomato," and if possible, I'd like the fuchsia & white heart with flowers in the background in your gallery in return!

01-08-2009, 03:53 PM
Thank you BekahStargazing, but I already have a tomato. The items in parenthesis is what I have already in the other sets. Anything else, unusual, with T is ok.

01-08-2009, 04:11 PM
Oh, forget about the Pasta that I was going to do in the PM...
Man, I'm out of it today.
I didn't see that you already had another P person.

What else can I do?

I will draw you a mushroom for M!
Mushrooms are my favorite things to draw and photograph.
So can I do that?

01-08-2009, 04:15 PM
I'm really sorry for all the confusion going on in the PMs. It's all my fault. :(

01-08-2009, 07:15 PM
We got it all figured out. I had a tornado not a tomato :laugh:

01-17-2009, 07:36 PM
Elena, I'd love to do a couple for you! How about H is for hot sauce, and U is for uvula? hehe

Would you be willing to do a couple of alphabet cards for me too? The ones I need are in my sig. If you don't have time to do customs atm, I'll have no problem picking a couple of cards from your gallery! :)

01-17-2009, 08:35 PM
I will pm you bubblecup.

01-17-2009, 11:48 PM
Elena, from your gallery I would love "One Wild Time", and "Black Bird". :)

01-18-2009, 06:04 PM
I'll make a D (daisy or dragon) and F (forest or frogs) for your "B&W with colors" and "Lost Bird" if that's alright.

01-18-2009, 06:14 PM
Thanks MikasCupcake, I'll pm you.

01-30-2009, 01:56 PM
Anybody else? The things in parenthesis is what I already have! I am looking for something different to those.

02-02-2009, 02:22 PM
How about a Key for "K" and a Zentangle for "Z"? Are stamps acceptable?

02-02-2009, 02:27 PM
Yes T*Time, stamps are acceptable as long as the card is Mixed Media.

02-02-2009, 08:17 PM
If you don't mind if it takes me a week or so, I could make you a J card (probably a juggler)... I love the Time II card in your gallery if it's still available.

02-03-2009, 08:34 AM
no problem miss. Time II is yours.

02-04-2009, 07:54 AM

02-14-2009, 03:42 PM
Elena, I love to make cards so I would like to make a couple of more for you without you sending me some. I can do G for giraffe, and I for iguana. PM me if you want them. Love Peg

Peggy Scrougham
02-14-2009, 03:43 PM
Oh yes, I got your card and it is lovely. Thanks, Peg

02-17-2009, 09:05 AM
Elena, I'll make you an Owl for "Marjorie" (or "Just Me") in your gallery. Love those postage stamp people!!:cute:

02-17-2009, 09:36 AM
Thanks bluelotusflower! I'll pm you.

02-27-2009, 04:01 PM
I sent the E and X cards 2/24.

Hope you like them.

02-27-2009, 04:43 PM
I received them today :jiggy: Thanks!

02-27-2009, 05:11 PM
sent you a pm about the acorn and Geisha ...

02-27-2009, 05:22 PM
I know it is a little confusing....what I have in parentesis is what I have on my other alphabets already....looking for something different for the 3rd one.

03-02-2009, 09:45 AM
Just wondering, have you received my "O is for Owl" card yet?

03-02-2009, 10:17 AM
bluelotusflower, yes I did and I thought I had given you feeback. I went back and I don't see it so I may had just dreamed it :wideeyed:

03-02-2009, 01:04 PM
I just sent this out today. Here is your L is for Lantern card:

03-02-2009, 01:05 PM
It is perfect! Thanks!

04-08-2009, 06:31 AM
Depending on whether you select one of the cards above, I'll make you a G = (Lady) Gouldian finches. I would LOVE "Zetti Fairy III".

04-08-2009, 06:54 AM
As I said on the first page, I am looking for "Mixed Media, fabric/stitched, or hand draw/painted cards", sorry.

04-08-2009, 11:03 AM
Okay, I gather you would not want one of my collage cards. One last try. Would you like S for Seahorse out of fabric?

04-08-2009, 12:20 PM
Yes bluelotusflower, fabric is ok, thanks!

04-17-2009, 11:33 AM
O, crftyscrapper!
Your card is beatiful.

Peggy Scrougham
04-23-2009, 07:40 PM
Elena, I would trade an iguana for your "between the roses" card. I promise not to let the grandkids lose the card this time. Love Peg

04-24-2009, 07:16 AM
Peggy, an iguana is great. thanks.

Peggy Scrougham
04-24-2009, 02:01 PM
I will get it ready and in the mail. Love Peg

04-26-2009, 07:32 AM
Thanks, quilteveryday! I'll pm you.

05-01-2009, 07:35 AM
Thanks quilteveryday!

05-11-2009, 08:51 PM
I received the "I" from Peggy today.
I need 5 more letters!

05-15-2009, 09:49 PM
Hi! If you'll allow a newbie to do a letter, I'd love to do a Guava card for the Geisha card!
Let me know! :)

05-16-2009, 01:21 AM
Hi Elena, I would like to offer to make 'Q' for queue and 'X' for x-ray. I plan to use stamps as the basis for these cards and I notice that you say that this is all right as long as it becomes a mixed media card. What does this mean? (I'm only a Newbie)
PS if we do swap I would like your Cat and Dolphin II cards.

05-16-2009, 07:22 AM
aydae, a guava is great! I don't have a Geisha card...you need to look at my available gallery. The "Geisha" by the G means I already have an alphabet card in my previous alphatet representing a Geisha and I am looking for something different. So guava is perfect.

Donnacr Q an X is great. Mixed Media means you need to use as least 3 medias (no to confused with embellishments). Stamping will be one media. Other medias are collage, digital, melted crayon, gesso, acrylics, watercolors...get the idea? Need to mix things up.

I'll pm you both later as I am running out the door now :jiggy:

05-16-2009, 10:40 AM
Hi Elena! I obviously got confused. :D Regardless, I've had a look through your gallery, and I will trade you a Guava for your We Can See You card, if that sounds good to you!

05-16-2009, 11:31 AM
aydae, you got it! I'll pm you my address.

05-17-2009, 08:02 AM
I only need 3 more letters!!

A, N, W

07-28-2009, 12:40 PM
I am missing the N and the W, anybody?

07-28-2009, 01:24 PM
I'll do a card for you - How about a "Wading Pool" for "W"?

07-28-2009, 02:49 PM
Sure Russell, thanks! I'll pm you.

07-28-2009, 04:34 PM
I'll do 'A' if you would like, Addams Family? or would you like an object?

07-28-2009, 04:40 PM
I am missing only the "N" PrincessScary.

07-28-2009, 04:54 PM
ok, i'll try and think of something else (the A is still showing as free on your list)

07-28-2009, 06:13 PM
You are right Princess Scary, sorry for that. I'll pm you.
