4th Annual Blog Swap: Beatles (or Stones?)

Here it is, my 4th annual blog swap, and this year the theme is Beatles Songs - or, if you´re more on the wild side, you can even pick a Stones song ;-)
Five years ago, Jenny Russell´s Beatles ATC swap was one of my first ATC swaps ever, and I´ve loved it: There are sooooo many great songs to use, and they have great titles and lyrics to illustrate.
If your memories need a kick, you´ll find a song list here.
And as I know about the old squabble between Beatles and Stones fans, and because I love them both, you can even make ATCs about Stones songs if you prefer that.
Here are the rules:
Please sign up via personal e-mail (just click on the E-mail me link in the sidebar) and let me know your snail mail address. There´s no sign up date.
Then send 3 ATCs to my address (that I´ll send you when I answer your e-mail) before May 15.
I decided to limit the amount of cards to three per person this year because of swapping and postage concerns, and there won´t be any exceptions.
As always, you´ll find regular updates here on my blog with links to all participants´ ATCs. So when you´ve finished your ATCs, please send me an e-mail with the link to the place where you´ve posted them, and I´ll add that link to the next update so that everyone can go to your blog or other website to have a look at your artwork.
I´ll send out invitations to all previous blog swap participants, but this swap is open to all my visitors.
Have fun!

Your ATC is incredible, one of my favorite songs by the Beatle's too!

I just found your blog from a link on Marilyn Rock's blog. Isn't blogland wonderful? Although I probably visited you during OWOH, I am delighted to have time to spend on your blog today.

Each day I spotlight a new blog on my blog. After seeing a few entries on yours, I have decided on yours for tomorrow (Mar 28). Sundays are especially special because the chosen blog has its own post.

I got really inspired by your blog. As I told Marilyn, although I'm not a Beatles or Stones fan, this looks like a really fun swap. I'll be checking back often for updates and inspiration.

my first time
on your blog,
this sounds
so wonderful,
i love both bands
do all three
have to be about
the same song?
or can we do
a 'stones' and
a 'beatles' tune?
be gentle...

Hi kapttodd, it´s totally up to you - I´d love to see as many different cards about as many different songs as possible, but that´s only because I´m curious; you can also make three similar cards about the same song if you like. And you can mix Beatles and Stones songs as you like it. Hope you´ll join us in the swap!
