WOYWW 208 - Fourth Anniversary!!

And here it is - the big WOYWW4 Artist's Trading Card swap!

As you can see, I've made 8 ATCs - I was hoping to make 10, but to be honest, I'm thrilled I've managed to return to this dinky art-form - it's one of my favourites :)

These are the first ATCs I've made since the stroke, which proves my left hand is getting more dexterous - yay!!

This means I've got at least 7 extra cards to swap - I may make the remaining two - clearly I have more than enough supplies!!

So if you'd like to swap, just send a note to claire.sauer[at] with your snail mail and I'll get one in the post asap.

I should mention - there is one ATC with a vintage, discreet nude image, so if you'd rather not have that one, please let me know :)

Can't wait to see all your crafty desk goodness over at The Stamping Ground - it's going to be a great anniversary bash, I'm sure!

Till next week xxx

PS You may have noticed some new buttons on the right sidebar...

I've just started a 6-week course with Janet Conner - a favourite author - so I'm not sure how much crafting I'll get done in the coming weeks... but my hope is to drop by WOYWW as often as possible :) 


Nikki said...

Congrats on making so many ATC's :) I'm guessing I should have not shown all of mine lol but I'd love to swap you

It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

Your desk looks very full of ATC’s Claire, I think the ATC’s have been a bit of a challenge for many of us, including me.

Enjoy your Wednesday snooping on this very special Day
Happy Crafting!
