Little Cards: October

10 Nov

It was in October of 2015 that I started the adventure that is Little Cards— a group where monthly themes are announced for willing participants to make ATCs for. It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since our first two themes, Orange and Halloween Movies, but the proof is in the 331 ATCs I personally have acquired.

In honor of the 2nd anniversary, I decided to let the members of our Facebook group have a say in what October’s theme should be using the following steps:

  • Step 1: Provide each member with the chance to nominate a theme
  • Step 2: Choose my three favorites from the nominees and create a poll
  • Step 3: Using the poll, let them vote for the ultimate winner

I’d just like to add quick that I’ll be using all of the nominations at some point, so no one participated in this process in vain 🙂

Anyway, it was no surprise when a third of the members, myself included, thought that Ashley’s Tricks &/or Treats theme was a great choice for October. 6 of us then participated in said theme, resulting in these 6 ATCs– the “I got a rock” one was my contribution, hehe:

I’d like to thank Ashley for nominating such a fun theme, and all the members who have made this group what it is over the past two years (especially Jenn, my former cohost). 7 of us are now participating in my Woodland Critters theme. I look forward to sharing that leg of our adventure with you, and the whole next year, too.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: September

18 Oct

Admittedly this post is more of a whimper than a bang. Whether there were three ATCs featuring the American Horror Story theme or 30, though, I still wanted to show you this set now that I have all of the components! If you’re not familiar with American Horror Story, it is an anthology series where each season features a different horror story. I made the card on the left in honor of season 3, Coven; Sarah made the right one utilizing a quote from season 5, Hotel; and Jenn made the middle one for the current season, Cult!

6 of my fellow adventurers and I are now working on Little Cards featuring Tricks and/or Treats per Ashley’s October-friendly suggestion. I only have two batches so far, but I’m looking forward to the others and being able to share them all with you– bang or otherwise 😉

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: August

10 Sep

I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I recently received all of these ATCs per August’s Adventures:

Fairs and Festivals:

Disney Sidekicks:

The bad news? August was Jenn’s last month being my cohost via Little Cards on Big Adventures. She still has every intention of participating in my swaps, like the American Horror Story one currently in progress, but the more time she spends off of Facebook, the more sense it made for her to step down. Eventually I may recruit someone to host a second swap each month, but for now we’ll just have my monthly one as we all find our footing on this leg of our adventure.

And it is because of this adjustment period that now is a good time to join us on this trip if you enjoy making ATCs! In our Facebook group, I’m encouraging each member to nominate what theme they’d like to do in October, and putting my favorites to a vote when the month gets closer. Every vote counts– even yours *wink, wink; nudge nudge*

Well, whether you join Little Cards on Big Adventures, or just join me here next time, take care and stay lovely!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: June and July

21 Aug

A silly little fact? I actually had all of July’s Little Cards before I had all of them from June. Granted, last month we solely revisited the Summer Blockbusters theme, and there were only three of us who participated, but still 😉 I imagine I would have actually gotten both month’s Little Cards around the same time had someone’s Wizard of Oz ones not gotten lost somewhere over the rainbow or something, but new ATCs were made, and so now this blog post has been made!

June:

Summer:

The Wizard of Oz:

July:

Summer Blockbusters:

With any luck it won’t be another two months before I have 4 Fair & Festival and 6 Disney Sidekicks cards to show you, but just like the Wizard of Oz set– and happy mail in general, better late than never!

Ciao for now!
Sincerely, Kate ~!~

 

Hail the Snail 2.31

2 Jul

June 17th: This entry is starting with something from my last one: the second to last batch of Little Cards per my Childhood Memories theme.

June 19th: The rest of the Childhood Memories cards came in plus a batch of Summer ones, and I got a couple postcards from Krista, too.

June 21st: All of the Pirate cards came in next, and so did these awesome goodies from Sarah (left) and my mom (right):

June 22nd: Finally some letters to mention, brought to you by the letter J since they were from Jody and Justine 😉

June 23rd: Joining my little reply pile were letters from Kayla and Sarah.

June 26th: And then came a letter from Ashley plus her Little Cards– the last of what I needed to make the Summer sets!

June 29th: I got another two postcards from Krista, this time from Vegas.

And since I didn’t post this on the 30th like I meant to…

July 1st: Another postcard came from Krista… that was sent with the ones from the 19th, lol. Better late than never, right?

I’m looking forward to what July has in store for me and the boys (both in the mail and out of it), because June was pretty good to us. When Logan hasn’t been busy camping or with things like the Summer Reading Program, for example, we’ve been to the movies, played putt putt, ate a LOT of ice cream, and even made stuffed animals.

Well, the boys are up (from their slumber party, hehe) now so I’m going to go. Remember, though: it’s always the small pieces that make the big picture!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: May

22 Jun

Oh, you have no idea how happy and flat-out RELIEVED I am that I can finally share these Little Cards with you! Not one, but TWO batches from the Childhood Memory theme went MIA, so not only did their makers make new batches, I had to wait for them to arrive, hoping they wouldn’t get lost, too. Good news: they didn’t!

Childhood Memory:

Pirates:

I hope my fellow adventurers also feel like May’s Little Cards were worth their wait! I’m pleased to report that June’s themes have been going much more smoothly on my end– I should have the last batch of Summer ATCs any day now. With any luck I’ll be sharing those and the ATCs from Jenn’s Wizard of Oz theme with you very soon, and I’ll be announcing July’s sole theme in our Facebook group, ATCs: Little Cards on Big Adventures, even sooner!

Bon Voyage 😉
Sincerely, Kate ~!~

 

Little Cards: April

3 May

I actually had the following ATCs by the time April was over, but A) I wanted to give the other adventurers time to get their sets yet, and B) my minor OCD tendencies liked the idea of posting this exactly a week after when I shared my Little Cards from March, haha. Without further ado…

Bunnies:

Romantic Comedies:

This hobby is like a box of chocolates– you never know what you’re going to get! I’m excited to see what comes via our Childhood Memory and Pirates themes, and letting you see them, too, when the time comes! Happy May!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
