ATCs: From the Deck: Numbers

"Winning Hand"
by Lisa Howard
There were winning hands all around in the July Artist Trading Card (ATC) swap. The theme was "From the Deck: the number cards."

This is the third and final installment in the "From the Deck" ATC series which spanned the last 3 months. Previous months featured "Aces and Jokers," and "Royalty Cards." This month, all suits—hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades—were represented and we almost hit a straight with a 7-8-9-10 sequence.

Here are the ATCs from this month's participating artists. They are all great players and everyone is a winner!

    I admit I am a member of the ATC group above but don't you just love the ingenuity of each and every one of the participants? I admit freely I look froward to receiving these at the first of the month much more openly than the usual ho-hum mail. And don't you wonder how our leader Veronica thinks of these themes to try to stump us?.Thanks everyone for all your clever and thoughtful representations. Liz A.

    1. Liz, I don't intentionally try to stump you on the themes, but glad you like them. I try to make them interesting, diverse and fun. Everyone does a fabulous job meeting and exceeding the challenge every month! Yes, so much better than the other ho-hum mail we get.
