Hello, and welcome to my most ambitious (so far) shot at hosting a swap!

This will be a fun ATC swap, and exactly what all of us "lovers-of-sappy-sweet images" have been waiting for!

Simply find a picture/image/graphic of something vintage, sweet and/or nostalgic and secure to a standard size (2.5 x 3.5) ATC! You will send 3 ATCs, to 1 a total of 3 ATCs! (see example...feel free to use as a stamp on your website!) Use your imagination! Do some flickr searches for inspiration! Create something you would LOVE and make them FAB!

Here are some places you can find sweet, vintage images:

  • Vintage children's books
  • Vintage games
  • Children's playing cards
  • Etsy, Artfire, Ebay (vintage graphics cds)
  • Baby books
  • Vintage party supplies
  • Vintage birthday cards, valentines
  • Packaging from baby clothes
  • Google image search
  • Red Lead!

Newbies and beginners welcome, but please have a nicely filled-out profile. All others must have a rating of 4.5 or above, or have no 1s or 3s in the last year. No likee the flakees. :-) (But I will angel if needed (see the halo shining above my head?)

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Have fun, and let your "love for the sweet and sappy" be your guide!

Happy Swapping,

Paula Clare

Paula, This sounds like so much fun. This one I just have to pass on, but perhaps the next? I am not doing well right now and need to withdraw for a time. E

Again, I am new to, I would make 3 different ATC's to send to one person? Have I got this right? Sandy
