My daughter has been participating in ATC (Artist Trading Card) swaps and other swaps for quite a while now, but I was always afraid to try. Then this precious "Countdown to Christmas Match Box Swap" showed its shining, smiling face to me, and I could not resist. Since I had never taken part in one, I had to get a reference. My pal, Vicki, over at Cherry Chick did the honors. I am so excited and cannot wait to begin my little creations. Christmas is such a wonderful time, and this year it is going to be even more festive than usual. Thanks, Vicki, for standing up for me, and thank you, Linda, for doing all the hard work involved in sponsoring this swap.
