Due Date: March 30th

# Cards: 3 for 3

This will be a three (3) for three (3) swap. Since this is my very first hosted swap I am going to limit the players to 12.

You will go to this site:

Chose up to three holidays to create your ATCs for. They can be all the same holiday or three different ones. (If this goes well I would like to continue with the rest of the months) All mediums are welcome.

1.) nermalski - Received
2.) wolfwynd - Received
3.) CHRISM - MIA??
4.) catharinejo- Withdrew
5.) VALLEY4J-Had to withdraw-
6.) corrie04 - Received
7.) Miss - Received
8.) KatzR2 - Received
9.) Lyndahobby - Received
10.) maxie23 - Received
11.) Vicky Z - Received
12.) Chimera.Muse (me) - DONE

Due Date:
Cards are due in my hands by March 30th. This will be an on time swap. I will mail your return cards on the due date! NOTE: Late-arriving cards will be held for 1 week past the due date, swapped with other late cards, and then sent back out. (If there are not enough late arrivals, late folks may get some or all of their own cards back!)

USA participants, please enclose 58-cents postage on your return envelope. If your envelope contains only 41-cents postage, I will be limited to sending you back very simple cards with no embellishments. Our new postal rates require 58-cents if the envelope is slightly thicker, slightly heavier, or requires hand cancelling (and if it’s both thicker AND heavier, it costs 75-cents). So affix your return postage accordingly.

International participants, I will pay return postage. An extra ATC of the swap theme would be greatly appreciated, but is not required.

I will update THIS post (the first post in this thread) to inform you of the status of our swap. So check back HERE for updates. (You won’t have to read through pages and pages of posts or scroll to the end to get current information!)

Swap Rules:

1. Send your BEST cards – cards that demonstrate your best workmanship, and that you are proud to share with others.

2. Clearly write your USERNAME and SWAP NAME in these 3 places:
* On the back of all your cards
* On the front of your mailing envelope
* On the front of your return envelope

3. Enclose a return label or self-addressed envelope. Inside the USA, include 58-cents postage. Outside the USA, I’ll pay return postage.

4. If you’re mailing from outside the USA, please mark “AIRMAIL” and mail early to allow extra time for delivery to the USA (I recommend allowing 3 extra weeks for delivery from outside the USA).

5. An extra ATC for the swap host (in line with the swap theme) is greatly appreciated, but not required.

6. 3-D embellishments are fine, as long as the completed cards slide into standard 9-pocket pages, and as long as the embellishments are securely mounted so they don’t fall off during shipping. (Keep in mind that thick cards may require a padded mailing envelope and additional postage).

7. When you sign up for this swap, I will PM you my address and a reminder of the swap details.

8. I will give iTrader feedback the same day I receive your cards, and will also update this post showing that your cards have arrived. In return, I encourage you to give iTrader host feedback for me when you receive your swap returns, and Reputation Points for the artists whose cards you receive.

(I want to thank Janiselain for all her wonderful, supportive help in teaching me the ropes. All mistakes are mine)
