Seashells Crabs, Horse Shoe Crabs and Lobsters Hand-drawn or Painted
Swap Due Date – March 31
Signup/withdraw date – March 1
Number of Cards – 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Number of participants –US: Unlimited; Internationals : 5 paid by hostess, then unlimited pay for your own

[B]Please Note: I am extending this swap's due date to March 31st and the sign up cut off to March 1st. This will help give everyone time to get registered, withdraw or get cards made and mailed. Thank you!

I love the ocean and everything in it, but I especially like seashells and crustaceans. For this swap, you will make 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 cards featuring Seashells, Crabs, Lobsters or Horseshoe Crabs.

Media: This swap is for Handdrawn or painted cards only. Handdrawn does not mean coloring in someone else's line work. These should not be colored in photocopies of your own work either. They need to be individually drawn and painted. Cards should be in color and should not be plain graphite pencil drawings.

All cards must be original. Each card should be distinct and different. I do not want “cookie cutter” cards. You can use the same image for them, but it should be used in a new or different way each time.

Please make sure all the art work is of the very best of your ability and of the quality you would like to receive in return.

All cards should be in a plastic protective sleeve.

US PARTICIPANTS: Unlimited, please include an SASE with 2 loose stamps and a loose 17 cent stamp for possible bulky returns. Usually, each envelope will only require one stamp, but sometimes bulky or heavy cards may require more. This can only be determined when the cards are actually swapped out. Any unused postage will be returned to you.
INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPANTS: You are welcome in this swap. I can pay for the first 5 International participants. Any sign-ups after that will need to include US stamps or an IRC for returns.
Cards are due on or BEFORE the due date. I will not hold swaps for late cards. If you cannot get your cards to me on time, please withdraw from the swap. I know life happens, so please let me know if you need to withdraw from this swap.

Anyway, your returns should be there soon, as I plan to mail them out today or tomorrow at the latest. These were GREAT cards! THank you all for playing and putting in your best effort.

KAHED~ Your Pompeii returns and a few extras for the trouble are included in with the returns for this swap. Thank you for your patience!
