City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #61 ~ ATC

Hi everyone! It's me Linda back for a fun challenge! I just wanted to start by saying I really loved last week's challenge. It was so fun and different. I do hope you guys like it as much as we did. So onto this week's challenge. It is also something a little different than what we have done before.... we want you to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card). They are pretty fun and if you have never tried one before, this is your perfect chance.

There are only a couple of rules for an ATC...
1. They should be 2.5" x 3.5" in size, the same size as a playing card
2. If you are going to trade your card, make sure you have your info on the back of the card.
3. You are no suppose to sell them, they are FOR TRADE ONLY!

you can click on this link to see a video on ATC
Well, we can't wait to see all your little pieces of ART!

NOTE - Since it is a trading card, we thought we would do a little swap, if you are interested, please scroll to the bottom of this post to sign up for the ATC swap.

I am happy to introduce you to our Guest Designer this week - Suzanne Czosek!

Here's a little about Stampersuzz in her own words: 
Hi! My name is Suzanne Czosek. I am so excited to be guest designing for City Crafter Challenge Blog!
I have been stamping for around 5+ years. My style varies fro shabby chic and vintage to cute and playful cards. I enjoy getting inky and trying new techniques and challenges. That's why I love seeing what the CCCB team is up to every week!
The challenge this week is so fun! Love creating mini pieces of art and they are a wonderful way to trade pieces of art between friends.
