ATC Challenge

Happy Monday friends! Today will be a fun day! Today will be our first ATC (Anya Trading Card)Swap! For those of you who are not familiar with ATC swaps, I'll explain a little. ATC originally stands for Artist Trading Cards. These ATCs are traditionally passed out amongst artists and designers, sort of like trading baseball cards. The traditional sizes of ATCs are 2.5" by 3.5". But I think for the Anya Trading Cards, I am switching the size up to 3.5"x 5.5".

Here is my example of an Anya Trading Card.

If you are interested in the swap, please email me your name and your submission. Details are below:

RULES: ATCs should measure 3.5"x5.5" flat (no fold over) and the main stamp should be an Anya stamp. One per person please. You can sign the back with your name and maybe a little message if you'd like. Once I get all the names and submissions, I will randomly pair up people for the secret swap and from there you can mail each other the card.

PRIZE: I will select one lucky person from the swap and they will get to select a free stamp set of their choice.

DEADLINE: Thursday, Nov. 27th. I will announce ATC winner and list all the submissions on Friday.

If you have any question, please let me know. Have a great day everyone!

Today's question is: What's your favorite soup?

LOL. I'm asking this because it's cold today. Mine is homemade tomatoe soup with lots of veggies!

I would say my fav soup would be Baked Potato soup. I used to love the ones at Bennigan's and since they're now closed, I am going to Salt Grass, they put real potato chunks in there. YUM! :)

I love my mom's sausage soup. I wish I could eat it everyday.

I've never actually done any type of "swap" or ATC... I'll have to see if I have time with all the holiday preparations this week though. =)

Favorite soup... Chili isn't a soup right? Okay, chicken n' dumplings. My Mama and I make this everytime it starts to get cold... I love it. Mostly for the dumplings. haha.

Stay warm!!

Oh, I wish a could play because this sounds like a fun swap! But I'm so overextended with the holidays, a day trip to NYC this week and prepping for release week next week! Dang! Anyway, my favorite soup is my hearty turkey soup with dumplings using the left over carcass of the Thanksgiving turkey for the stock...delectible! :D

My favorite soup is the greek cream of chicken w/ rice soup that most family rest's have on Sunday. YUMMY!!!

Swap sounds amazing and I'm in! For those of you wondering where you can put these, too, I put my larger size swaps in a cheap dollar store 4X6 vinyl brag book or something like it. You can decorate the cover to say "Anya swaps" or whatever you want and keep them all in one place under a protective cover! Or, you can slap them right down on an A2 card!

I can't wait and hope you guys are in!!!

By the way, Marie, that card is GORGEOUS!!!! Duh, I cannot believe I didnt' say that earlier LOL. It really is so that vintage feel and all the details/embellishments. Love it!

I love this CHeddar baked potato that Keith got from work a while back, but I can't find it in the stores. After that would be the 15 bean soup that I make and throw in bacon and celery and carrots and peppers. It is really cold on rainy days.

I can't do the ATC swap because I don't have any Anya's yet!!! Waiting till the end of the month when my paycheck comes!!!!
