ATC Swap Challenge!!!

I have been so excited as when we finished 
last month's 

So many of you that Entered and so
many New Followers and Facebook Friends
have been immediately asking when we'll
be doing this again and that you're
all ready to get to making more ATC's...

So Here We Go:) LOL!!!

$25 Gift Certificate Giveaway
with our Lovely
Woo Hoo!!! LOL!

After the Success of Last Month's ATC Swap and
Gift Certificate Giveaway, I learned a few things
on how to streamline this post a little bit differently.
Being up in Canada, and with the slowness of 
mailings, the use of taking the pictures to be entered
worked really well!

And so many of the Entries into the last ATC Swap
have been filtering in through the post, but a few
still haven't arrived yet, even though you all
have confirmed they've been sent.

So here's the Details to be 
Entered for the
April 2012
$25 Gift Certificate to 
(Using the Random Generator Site:)
and to 
Participate in the Swap!

To Enter
Please leave a comment on this Post
that you're throwing your hat
in the ring! 
That way you're Entered into the
Drawing for the $25 Gift Certificate!
Email a picture of your completed
ATC Entry to me at
with your mailing information so 
you will be
 Entered in the Swap
for me to send the Swap ATC's
for each of your Entries:)
You may Enter up to 3
(I will email confirmation along
with my mailing address to you:)

That's 3 Chances to Win 
the $25 Gift Certificate 
Swap 3 ATC's!!

When I receive your email with
your picture attached and your
mailing information,
I will add your pictures to a post
here on my blog along with
any information you would like
me to help you promote 
your blog, Etsy Shop or your
own Website.

I will also daily be posting
the pictures of your 
ATC Entries on Facebook!
So do make sure you send 
me a 'Friends' Invite on
Facebook so you can
see your Entries posted 
there as well as here on
my blog!

What I'm doing a slight bit
differently this time is...
When you have Entered
and Emailed your ATC
Pictures to me, I'll ask
you to please mail them to
me then when
they are Entered

(last time it was at the Deadline
so this will hopefully expedite the Swap!)

as I will furnish you with
my mailing address, and I will
send out your Swap ATC's
when yours arrive. 
(This will also help me out, as I made 33 ATC's
for you all for the Swap and want to make sure
that only Entered ATC's are receiving the
Swap ATC's to be Fair:)

So lets see....
what other Details do we need.....
Oh Yes!!! 
The Theme 
for this months
Anniversary Swap!!! 

Your 'Inner Child' to Channel!!!
Your ATC Entries can be anything about
Favourite Childhood Things, Childhood Memories,
Childhood Friends, Favourite Toys, anything
you all might be prompted to do about Childhood:)

And in turn, I'll also be making the Swap ATC's
that I'll be sending out to you all for each
of your Entries!

Childhood Related! :)

The Deadline for all the
ATC Entries and for the
$25 Gift Certificate Drawing

will be 
Friday, April 27th, 2012
With the Winner
Announce on
Saturday, April 28th, 2012!!!

I will also be doing other posts
here on 
Birdnuts Mixed Media
between now and the Deadline
as there is much more
in the 'works' for my
1 Year Anniversary Month!!!

Woo Hoo!!!
Let the ATC Making Begin!!!

Thanks to you all for
such great fun the last
Swap and Giveaway, as
I'm looking so forward
to seeing all your Entries
for this one!!!
And don't be shy! If you haven't
made ATC's
(Artists Trading Cards)
before, email me and I'll
explain it all to you :)!!

Have Fun! 
And Good Luck on the Draw!!!

Hi- have emailed about last month's swap but haven't heard anything back. I participated but have no idea what to do with my ATCs to actually get them to you.

Whoo Hoo!!! I'm in. Love all those Alice ATC's in your post :) Super cute!! ~Happy Creating!

Jennifer (Jennifer Gerwig-Dively)
I've sent you 3 emails with my full mailing address since last month with the last one sent just a couple of days ago. You may want to check if the email address on your profile is correct, as I haven't received any emails in return. I have ATC's to send to you once you send me your mailing address, as the March ATC Swap is over and we're now into April's. Email me at with your mailing address, and in turn I'll return/send mine again:) We'll get it figured out yet!! LOL! Cheers!!
