Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards, or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches, small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold. (definition courtesy of Wikipedia)

Below is an ATC 
I made in honor of 
my beloved friend.
I miss you Carole, 
but I know,
you are my Guardian Angel.

On the sidebar you will find Artist Trading Cards I have won in trades. These are not my artworks, and I have received permission to show them here. Please click on the artist's name below the card to visit their website or blog. You will love seeing all the very different, very original, very inspirational works! Too many very's? I think not. teehee. Thank you to all the artists who I have been honored to trade with. Some of my ATC's are in the Slide show on the Slide page. Click on that if you'd like to take a look!
Enjoy and Thanks for looking!!
