View Full Version : Snowflake & Raindrop Whimsy Girls - Due Feb 14th

02-22-2008, 01:27 PM
Swap Due Date - Feb 14
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants -12

This swap is closed and all cards arrived at this end safely and have gone out!

As you recall, this swap was 3 for 3 -- hand drawn Whimsey Girls with Snowflakes and Raindrops as the theme. Our end date was apparently the same as the end date for our old site, so this is a wrap-up. I believe I rated all senders before the system went down but will verify over the next week to make sure you all get ratings on this one!

Thanks to all who signed up. I hope to post pictures later today on Flickr.

***All of you are receiving a card back from me -- I went on a Whimsey spree! Hope you enjoy them!***

It's great to be back in action! Here's a link to see the cards I made for this swap.

Are you up for another Whimsey swap? Ang says I'm good to go for another round, if people are interested. What themes sound likely?

02-22-2008, 11:42 PM
I just peeked at your cards - I love the wonderful variety of colorful outerwear you created for them!

Whimsey Moms & Daughters? Whimseys with Eyeglasses? Ballgown Whimseys? Whimseys with "UpDo" Hairstyles?

whimsey with glasses sounds fun.

whimseys go to work.

whimsey and cupcakes

Whimsey ballgowns! Now that could be fun!

If there weren't already a couple baked goods swaps going on, I'd love that theme...I just looked and there is already a cake swap (which I am in) and a lollipops and cupcakes theme. Do you think that adding another (cupcake theme) would be sweetness overload?

02-23-2008, 04:17 PM
Is there such a thing as sweetness overload? :jiggy:

Maybe whimsy girl book characters? Reading whimsy girls? Sports whimsy girls?

02-24-2008, 01:01 PM
Have you ever seen the magazine "High Fructose"? Now THAT is sweetness overload...

I just always get squeemy when there are a bunch of similarly themed swaps. Like maybe I am not being uniquely creative...but I do have a love of baked good themed ATCs...

02-25-2008, 12:26 AM
colour themed

Just a few Ideas!

All fabulous ones, too...Hey, Joeyj1220 just messaged that Whimsey's have touched down...and I am utterly amazed at that fast mail service.

I just discovered that my postage scale is incredibly miscalibrated, so my Australian and Canadian stamping was way off...but maybe those will get there faster with more postage, too...

I got my girls today! Thanks to TaylorJane (OrganicMama) for "Snow Day", JoyFlower for "Snowflake Whimsey One", Miss for "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head", and to our wonderful hostess for "Beret" and for hosting this fun swap. I love all my cards and am ready to get started on some more Whimsey Girls. Here are my suggestions:

Whimsey Flapper Girls
Whimsey Baby Girls

got wonderful cards from CMarois, SeaSong, Joyflower and our hostess - thanks so much - off to leave rep points :)

I'm considering "Crowns and Cupcakes"...if I got with that, I will post the new swap when I get back from my trip (probably the 17th.)

Any other suggestions for Whimseys? That was the combo that appealed to me the most (I figured ball gowns could work with crowns, right?)

Moving this one to the archive...
