T Stands For It's Party Time



Welcome to our 4th T Stands For Tuesday Anniversary.

It's definitely a party.

The party will involve gifts, but you will need to supply your own cake and refreshments.

This is your personal invitation.   You will need to RSVP by the end of today.  Of course, the RSVP is for the link-up and the ATC swap.

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.  The last person who links with an asterisk will send to the first person on the list who has an asterisk.  The circle is now complete.
9.  This swap is called Pay-It-Forward or PIF, 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.

Whether you are creating an ATC or not, when you link a post today, you will qualify for one of four ATCs I have made for this event.  I want this to be a fun and enjoyable fourth anniversary for all.   Winners will be named next week and chosen by Random.org.

We are sharing a cup of summertime love

which includes a cookie/biscuit served in European cafes/restaurants, but not so in U.S. cafes/restaurants.  The cup is intentionally empty, so you supply your drink of choice today.

Materials include card stock colored using bubble wrap and handmade shimmering mists, a magazine image, a portion of a card,

a stuffed fabric heart, three fancy paper clips, a computer generated invitation, and a computer generated cup.

And because Bleubeard and I are also hosting Art Journal Journey this month, we are sharing this with AJJ as well.

Now it's your turn to share your T entry this week.  When you link, Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit.  And if you are swapping ATCs, don't forget to look for your PIF partner.  Please don't forget, when you link you are eligible for one of four ATCs I have made that are ready to be sent to four lucky recipients.

Hi Elizabeth and Bleubeard,
Party on! I'm not joining the ATC swap, never yet made one and not really back papercrafting yet - next year perhaps.

At least I made it this week, late to bed but hey!

That's a party page for sure Elizabeth. Its exciting for 4 years of T Day. I think lately (especially) it has gotten so much fun and turned into a regular weekly event. I always look forward to it. Hope your anniversary day is a good one. Hugs-Erika

Happy Anniversary Elizabeth and Mr. Bleubeard!
Thank you for being here for us all every week - it is a wonderful friendly place and I love T-Day.
Congrats on reaching 4 years - what is a very long time for a weekly event - WOW and I hope there will be many more T-Days for us to come.
Your invitation page is so beautiful! Thank you!
I wanted to participate in the ATC Swap - but I hadn't made something yet and have some busy days here the next two weeks as well with renovations and visitors - so I have to step back - hope you don't be cross with me.♥♥♥
