RETURNS POSTED Monday, 03/10

This swap is now full.

Swap Due Date - March 7
Signup/withdraw date - February 28
Number of Cards - 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Number of participants -30

Please note that I had extended the due date for another week for those who need to catch up!

This swap is all about buttons. Any kind of buttons, any size, any shape.

Cards can be any theme and style you want. All mediums are welcome. The only requirement is that use at least one REAL button on your card. The card should fit inside a plastic ATC sleeve.

USA- Please include a LOOSE 58 cents stamp, and an address label. DON'T send an envelope, I'll take care of that for this one.
INT'L- Just send an address label.

Don't forget your user name on the back of the cards.
Send something you are proud of, and that you would love to receive back. Be creative, and let's have fun!

I encourage everybody to post their cards.

I posted the returns today Monday, 03/10. Thanks everybody for sending such wonderful cards! I hope all the envelopes make it safe to their destination. Since almost all the envelopes were bulky, they were hand stamped at the post office while 10 people wait in line behind me....Have fun with the returns! :jiggy:

Thank you Elena for hosting the button swap. They were bulky. Mine came with a rip in the envelope, but the ATCs all seemed to be in tact. Thank you for the cards - Tinka, Chrism and Amyl

Thanks Elena for a great swap, mine arrived today. The envelope was sliced open at one end but lucky the cards weren't damaged. (We think someone at the postoffice has opened it to see if it had money in it).

Thanks for my lovely cards - MandyS for the blue flower/button card, - Jonquil for the So Charming card and Marla412 for the little girl with flowers. They are Brill!


03-13-2008, 05:20 PM
I hope there is no problem with the other overseas envelope. I had filled out a customs form for each one and then the clerk at the office told me I didn't need one. I was like "Are you sure???" I think maybe they opened to check what was inside for custom purposes. Fingers crossed now :unsure:

03-14-2008, 06:09 PM
Thanks Elena for doing a fabulous job hosting and for the lovely swaps I received, they were from, KarenM, Natasha, NY Junky, all fabulous cards and will be placed in my international album for safe keeping. Thank you all.
