T Stands For Tuesday Turns Three Today

Today is the day we've all been looking forward to.  T Stands For Tuesday turns three today.

I'm so excited.  I'm ready to party and celebrate.

I even have a few tea cups to share in the celebration.

But I'm most excited about the ATC exchange.  In fact, I got so excited, I jumped the gun and sent a couple of these to friends across the pond.  One went to Valerie, because she has been so incredibly kind and generous to me, and the other went to Julia of WOYWW fame because she has also been very supportive of my work for the past seven years.  I really wanted to make one for everyone, but I truly only had time to make three, two of which are the same and one is similar, but uses a different fabric background.  Since I have no idea if the recipient has received it or not, I won't share it.

Let's go over the rules for this ATC exchange.  Sorry, even though I don't like rules, this time we must follow them. Today only we are linking using Inlinkz.  The reason is simple.  I can't remove your name in Mr. Linky, but YOU can remove your own name in Inlinkz.  If you are planning to share an ATC, here is what you need to do. 

1.  Link your DRINK related post below using Inlinkz.  Add an asterisk (*) after your name.
2.  If you forget the asterisk, simply look for the trash can (below your name) and delete your name and URL.
3.  Link your name and URL a second time with the asterisk after your name.
4.  Do this ONLY if you plan to pass on an ATC to the next person on the list who has an asterisk after their name.
5.  The next person with an asterisk whose name is after yours is the person you send your ATC to.
6.  Contact them and get their snail mail address.
7.  Send the ATC to them sometime before the end of the week, preferably the sooner the better.
8.  This swap is called Pay-It-Forward, and that is what you are doing.

If you are not swapping an ATC, please link as you normally would and make sure there is no asterisk after your name.  You do NOT have to swap an ATC to celebrate today.  Please join in regardless.  I want this to be a fun and enjoyable third anniversary for all.

 Thanks for joining the T Stands For Tuesday party.  Please remember that you do NOT have to swap an ATC to link and share your drink related post.

just a quick note to let you know I managed to post your pages on my blog. With my family in town for the week, it may take a while to visit everyone. And no time for ATC making this time around...

I am thrilled with the swap pages you sent and love every bit of pink! lol! they are so fun...and I did get the additional envelope you sent later. You have been so generous already, I am overwhelmed by the extra goodies! Thank You! And Happy Anniversary! ♥

Happy Anniversary! I can't believe it's three years now. Thanks for hosting this great tea party. I always enjoy my visits and my drinks!
I hope I have managed a direct link so it doesn't take ages to load. And there is an asterix. I wanted to put 8 asterixes as I have made 8 ATCs so anyone who wants to exchange with me is welcome.
(An especially)happy T-Day!,

Wow! You do know how to celebrate!!! This makes me feel in a good mood even though I am heading off to a meeting! I love how you made your ATCs - they do look beautiful! Thank you for hosting here each week - it's great to be a part of it!! Oh and yes…it's hot!…not as hot as the weather you are getting though! I am making an ATC - just not sure when it will get finished!! I sent you an e-mail but it did't get to you - snail mail will do just as well!! Hugs, Chrisx

Congratulations!!! Birthday? Anniversary? Both seem appropriate words to describe this occasion. You've brought joy into my blogging world, and I'll always treasure you for it :)

I'm bowing out of the ATC swap, because I put all my ATC materials away a while back and can't remember where lol. But I look forward to seeing everyone's creations.

Happy Day!!!
