View Full Version : Wild Animals/ Wild Colors Swap - Due March 15th

02-21-2008, 04:32 PM

Host: NYJunkie ------- Sign Up/Withdraw by: February 20, 2008

Number of Cards: 3/3 ------- Cards Due: March 15

Number of Players: 12 U.S./ 5 International

This swap is all about animals dressed up, disguised or have naturally wild colors. You can use your imagination - the animals can be real or imagined. However, they must be WILD animals!! Please try not to use bulky embellishments because it adds to the cost of postage.

Any medium and style of art is welcome. Please be original and creative.

DUE DATE: Cards must be received by March 15. I will be mailing out cards the following day.

LATE CARDS: I will hold the late cards to swap with other late cards and will return them after 10 days.

POSTAGE: U.S. Players: Please include a business size SASE and a loose 17 cent stamp. The 17 cent stamp will be returned if the extra postage is not required.

International Players: Please include a self-addressed envelope. I will pay for postage, but an extra ATC would be a nice extra to cover my expenses. However, it is not necessary.

Here are some cards I made, but all styles and medium are welcome.


1. This will be a 3 for 3 swap. You send in 3 cards and get back 3.
2. Please put your USERNAME on the back of each card, on the back of your mailing envelope, and on the front of your return envelope.
3. Enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope (US Players) with 58 cents postage. International players enclose a self-addressed envelope and allow extra time for delivery.
4. Please limit bulky embellishments.
5. I will notify you when the cards arrive and will update the swap thread.
6. Remember: Cards must be received by the due date: March 15. I mail out swap cards on March 16.
7. PM me when you are ready to mail your cards and I will PM my address.
