Fab 50s ATCs




These are the ATCs that I made for the first ATC swap that I'm hostessing of 2010 in the In My Vintage Room Yahoo Group. It's a 3 for 3 swap, but I was on a roll and now I get to keep one for myself. I googled retro images and came up with some great ones, then I looked for funny quotes to pair them with like I have seen on magnets and potholders in specialty gift shops. It just makes these ladies seem so independent and spunky to put sassy quotes in their mouths. I incorporated a Rock & Roll record, coordinating gem stones, and the print of 1950s drive-in/diner floors to complete the theme on each ATC. I hope I will have alot of participants in this swap...I had fun!

  1. Oh Tabitha, these are great! Reminds me of my younger years. Born in 1947, I remember all this faze. Great job. If I feel up to it, I hope to make some, but right now, cannot.
    Thanks as these just might be the motivation I need in the next couple of weeks to start some art again.
