My ATC group had a theme of inchies this month. My inchie is a plain simple inch of CS inked with a SU stamp from Clearly for you, and a dimensional butterfly added. It is water painted with a touch of Plum and a little shimmer added. My ATC base done with a TJ technique called Newsprint Reveal (4/5 2009 newsletter).
Here are all of the inchie ATC's from the trade
Michelle and Diane S.
One of the other things we do is a 1-4-1 swap- it can be the theme of the swap or not......
Here is mine:

Susan and Carol-Carol's is a folding ATC- I hope to learn HOW to make this!
Lori K and mine.
A couple more to show you for today:
Mary W showed us how to do thin vinal cutting- I do not know where to get this thin vinal- also how to cut and transfer the design using packing tape:
And, a couple more-these are 'extra's:
The swap is generally 12 ATC's -depends on how many swappers can make the meeting. Some artists make all different ATC's.....some make them all the same. Next month....hand drawn ATC's.......I better get working on that right away- I am not gifted in drawing!
Thanks for stopping by- have a great day!
