A surprise parcel

I'm a member of an ATC swap group called JAV and we mostly have swaps once a month where one of the organisers sets a theme and then you add your name to the list if you want to participate.

Lately we've had a couple of open themed Frenzy swaps where everyone makes however many cards they want to and they are put up on the blog then on a certain day you go in and email around your requests.

However this month Annette sent out an email asking us which medium we prefer to work in eg paints, stamps, mixed media, fabric, papercraft etc and said this month we would be getting a surprise. I replied saying that I worked mostly in papers, stamping, inks etc but have tried all types so I was happy to go with whatever. We all thought she would then just set the theme from the answers she received.

However in the mail this week I received a "surprise" parcel with three little packages named Jovial, Antique and Vivid in it along with a list of three members and the instruction that I was to make 3 ATC's and send them off to the people listed by the 1st September. We can add paint, inks, stamps etc as well.

Don't you love a collection of  goodies?

The surprise packages.




Stay tuned to see how they turn out.
