Garfield is a comic strip cat created by Jim Davis in 1978. Garfield is a lazy, fat, cynical orange tabby persian cat. I still love him to this day! This swap is all about Garfield and anyone or thing that he encountered in his many adventures in the comic strip. It doesn't matter who you decide to show on your ATC's as long as the card contains at least Garfield and any character(s) that appeared in the comic strip. Whatever scene you want, you are only limited by your imagination! Make sure the background isn't white. Get creative!

Thanks for playing DocJ29 and Leydab!

CynthiaSillitoe you are more than welcome to lurk but as always I hope you can play!
 
Yes, yes, and more yes to sign me up. My husband and I loved Garfield. I have a couple of the plush toys and after my husband had heart surgery many years ago, I gave him 2 latch hook kits with Garfield on them. He learned to latch hook and finished the rugs while he was recuperating (he never did any more) and he kept those little rugs next to his side of the bed and now I keep them on the same side to remember him so yes!!!

I was doing some research on Garfield and never realized he had so many "friends" that appeared in the comic strip with him!
 
I'm a yes now.

As a child of the '80s, I loved not only reading the strip in the newspaper, but those cool softcover comic books.
 
Question for clarity—should each card have Garfield? Should each card have another character, too? In other words, can a card just be Garfield or just Odie? (Sorry, I didn’t get a lot of sleep.)
 
CynthiaSillietoe, you can have Garfield by himself or with one of his friends. You can do any of his friends by themselves or with Garfield or with anyone else from the series. Whomever you want to put on your ATC is fine as long as they are from the Garfield cartoon/comic strip.
 
Leydab and DocJ29 both sets of wonderful cards arrived today! Thank you both for playing and for the hostie cards!
 
CynthiaSillitoe your awesome Garfield cards arrived today. The pictures don't do them justice, the colors pop and are gorgeous!
 
TrinaLD when did you mail your cards? I was just curious as they haven't arrived yet.
