Little Cards: Agriculture

26 May

While Gabe is busy with spring planting-related things this morning, I thought I should (finally) show you the set of Agriculture ATCs I received thanks to the most recently completed swap in my group, Little Cards on Big Adventures.

But before I do that, let me show you what I wrote when I first announced this theme in April:

It’s only a matter of time until the planting season starts for my husband, so lately it’s been a bit of a hot topic around here. That said, I started thinking “agriculture” could be a fun theme to use via LCOBA since there are so many directions you could go like tractors, crops, farm animals, etc. etc..

Six people, myself included, wound up making six farm-friendly ATCs each. Once I received all of the Little Cards, they were made into sets so the participants got one ATC from every person who participated. Without further adieu, this is the set I personally acquired:

I’m personally responsible for the scrapbook paper barn this time around. The next order of business for me is attempting something with a Volkswagen, lol, since the current theme is The 60’s/70’s. There are four of us participating in that, for the record.

Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing the Agriculture set a quarter as much as Gabe is ready to be done with spring planting right about now 😛

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

A Little Interested in Little Cards?

21 Dec

If you like making ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), or have been wanting to give them a try, why not make joining ATCs: Little Cards on Big Adventures one of your resolutions? 😉

A little taste of each of our active members’ work.

If you are, in fact, a little interested in Little Cards, here is what you need to know as we move into 2018:

-To participate, you must be a member of our Facebook group.

-On the first day of each month, I will post a theme. I do this as an event that only members are invited to.

-If you’re interested in making ATCS per the respective theme, you have a 48-hour window to click that you’re attending the event. This isn’t an in-person event, for the record, but an online one.

-If you don’t care for a certain theme, or there are months you just don’t have the time to make anything, you’re under no obligation to participate. Close out the event window and that’ll be that!

-When the sign up period is over, the number of people attending the event is the number of ATCs each participant will make. For example, the 5 of us who signed up for the current Clothing/Accessories theme are each making 5 ATCs.

-ATCs are 3.5 x 2.5 inches. We don’t require your cards to be identical each month, but we do want them to be of similar quality to keep things fair.

-Once your ATCs are made, they are all to be sent to me so I have them by the end of each month. My address will be available via the events.

-As soon as I receive all of the batches, I make sets so each person will receive an ATC from all of the participants, including one of their own.

DISCLAIMER: I don’t always get all of the batches by the end of the month, so please be patient. I will continue to send the sets as soon as possible!

And in case you’re wondering, the most ATCs we make per theme is usually around 7. The record is 12, but that was a long time ago and has since become a fluke.

Well, I think that is everything, but if you have any questions, you’re more than welcome to ask. Here is the link one more time for our Facebook headquarters. Hope to see you in there in the New Year, and to maybe find your Little Cards among the others in rotation.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
