And speaking of swaps...another swap I am hosting on the Bmuse Yahoo Group is an Artist Trading Card Swap with a bit of a twist....a two step swap where each participant makes a sheet of backgrounds and then swaps those and finishes an assortment of ATCs with the backgrounds done by other participants ....I have started a gallery page for this, so far we just have backgrounds, but keep the link cards are coming!
