Dressmaker's Form Swap

We are closed to sign-ups

Release the inner designer and make three or six ATC’s that use the attached template.

I was inspired by a one for one trade that I did and thought it would be fun to try myself. – and then I thought why not have a swap!!!!!!

This dressmaker's form is calling out for your inner fashionista to dress and adorn it with frills and glam. This template lends itself to be altered in many different ways Use fabric to dress it, use stamps to create your own fabric design or perhaps some gorgeous handmade paper is calling out to you. Whatever takes your fancy? Just colour, create and embellish it to your heart’s content. All I ask is that you submit cards that you would like to get in return.

• This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 swap due to me by the 29th February 2008 - remember that I am in Australia (post from the US can take 2 weeks).
• Late arrivals will be returned to their creators...
• If you need to withdraw at any time, not a problem but please let me know
• Australian players please include a Stamped SAE.
• International players please include an addressed label and I will cover your postage - an extra ATC is welcome to help cover the cost but by no means essential. Please write your user name and swap title on your envelope to me.
• Please also remember to put your user name on the back of all your cards
• Any medium is welcome but please, no clipart images...
• PLEASE no heavy or bulky embellishments
• Please tape your envies closed so that we don't lose any cards
• Please PM me for my address when you are ready to send your cards
• All cards must fit in a plastic ATC sleeve
• Make sure your usersname is on the back of all your cards

I think that’s all – If you have any questions or I have forgotten something please PM me or post to the thread.

I am sorry, mine may be late. I will be mailing them on Monday. If they don't make it to you by the time you swap them out, keep them. I don't want to hold up the swap, nor do I want you out any postage because of my tardiness. Keep your fingers crossed that they arrive in time.

I think ScramperSue went into the hospital for knee replacement.

Yes, I did...this thursday it will be 4 weeks. whew!:chatterbox: still dealing with some pain, and swelling. I am also on-again, off-again ill with very sick feeling overall and weekness and feeling on the verge of fainting. My hemoglobin dropped post-operatively and I had to get a transfusion of 2 units of blood, so that might be part of it. It has been a VERY rough 2 weeks. PT is moving along, and I graduated from a walker to a quad-cane yesterday. Today we got rid of the commode over the toilet, the toilet is a hair too low, but I am dealing with it. I am, thank God; feeling better enough to be doing some computer and creating! :D Yippee Skippee!!

Lanipearl, Pampie, Maxie23, Sally Rose, Paper Fairys, Carolyn Minto
