A set of cards make for a swap with the theme Autumn Butterflies.

Although I did make the background on these cards - I was first player - on this first set, I have scans of all three stages because Sarah did the second round.
These, however, are more usual - I have a scan of how the card started out, and one of how it finished, but nothing from the middle stage.
It doesn't really matter, of course, except that the process can be interesting.

This was a different kind of swap, and really fun. The hostess sent us a bunch of greeting card (used ones) - or rather, the fronts. Our challenge was to make ATCoins from them. I've included my finished coins, but also, the circles I punched from the cards (they are 2.5") and the original card. We had to have enough of the original card showing for it to be recogniseable, but that was it.
These first two came from quite a religious card, and as I'm not very religious, I adapted them.
These two came from a card which was just pink (everyone got one card which was a solid colour - presumably the back of a card in this instance).
This one came from a cute bunny card (I'm not huge on cute, so I altered it).
This one was a really shiny card.
And finally, we all got a Christmas card, which we were challenged to use in a non-Christmassy way. I turned mine into an underwater scene. Fun!

Another couple of sets of cards where I was the second (middle) person to add something. These were quite challenging, as they seemed quite full already, so I only added a fish.
With these, of course I had to fill the jar with something. Wish I had scans of what the other two jars came out like!

These cards were made for a Pick-a-theme Swap. Each player in my group said what theme they'd like, and I did my best to come up with a card which met that theme. The card above was for a bridge theme.
This one was simply a house theme.
This one was mushroom houses.
And finally, a sunflower & zebra theme.

A couple of sets of ATCs where I was the middle player. I got these knitting themed cards and decided to cut them into spool shapes. I think the finished cards work really well.
With these, there was really only one way to go. And I don't even like boxing!
