Swap Due Date - March 21st
Signup/withdraw date -
Number of Cards - 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Number of participants - Unlimited

* This is a carry-over swap from the old site, hence the reason for the short lead time. If you can POSITIVELY have your cards to me by due date, feel free to sign up, even though there is a very short lead time for you to make and mail your cards.

* This is a 3 for 3 card trade. Make 3 cards of any medium and receive 3 back. If you get on a roll, feel free to make 6 and you will get 6 back.

* If you are inside the U.S., please include a GOOD QUALITY (cards put more wear and tear on an envelope than a letter does!) SASE (Self Addressed Stamped LEGAL SIZE Envelope 4 by 9 1/4), or a mailing label with your address and loose stamps. If you like to make ATCs using postage stamps, why not take this as an opportunity to use a stamp on your return envelope that you want to later use on an ATC. You fufill my request for a SASE, and you get to choose the stamp that will come back to you / cancelled and ready to use on an ATC. Please put your Username and Swap Name on your mailing envelope, return envelope, and on all cards. And please write clearly on everything!

* International participants, I will cover your postage. Please include a GOOD QUALITY (cards put more wear and tear on an envelope than a letter does!) addressed LEGAL SIZE envelope 4 by 9 1/4, or a mailing label with your address. Please put your username and Swap Name on your mailing envelope, return envelope, and on all cards and labels. And please write clearly on everything!

* Cards are due to me by March 21st, 2008. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. itrader ratings will be given when I receive your cards. Returns will be mailed approximately one week after the due date. Late cards will be returned as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

* Thanks for considering this swap! I’ll PM you with my address when you sign up!

* Above all ~Have fun!!!

If I haven't excited you about this Movement Swap yet, here are some resourceses and fun links:
If you "click" on the fisherman card - 4th row- far right - both the card, and the fish, move !

Here is a link for an explosion card. (An awesome card when completed, but it is merely folded paper.)
http://members.aol.com/eo300zx/explosion.htmlThis card makes a GREAT St Pat Day Card, especially if one adds shamrock confetti to the center of the "Explosion"

I'm looking forward to seeing what cards I receive when this swap is over. If I find some time I'm hoping to make 3 more cards to send in.

Thanks for checking in, Lyndashobby. That way it is easier for folks to give you rep points when they get your GREAT cards.
Hope you find time to make some more!
Your first ones were AWESOME.

Great cards, I can't wait to see them in person.
I just sent you my addy via pm

Hope you guys like my cards! I had a Winnie the Pooh inspiration, then saw a really BRIGHT beanie baby and was inspired, and used shrink plastic to make a doll with moveable arms and legs using my fancy new stamp.

I bet your cards are going to be wonderful, LavenderLizard. I have seen your work, and have several of your cards already, so no worries.

Thanks for checking in.

Checking in - a bit late... sorry! I am here! :embarrassed:

I have just received an AWESOME group of cards from LavenderLizard. It is truly a pity that she didn't have time to load them to this thread before sending out, because they are truly SPECTACULAR. "Like" them, NO, I LOVE them. And thanks for sending an extra of your fancy new stamp. I am already coloring her!!!!

Wonderful cards received from icequeen07. These were the last cards I was waiting for, so I am swapping out and mailing out.
Look for some AWESOME returns, folks, this Swap has produced some fantastic Art!

I would expect most of you to receive your returns by the end of the week, if not sooner. Our two International players will have to wait a bit longer - sorry!

Unfortunately, not everyone who is participating has posted to this thread, so if you get a card that you really like, and cannot post rep points to this thread, please send the artist a PM and let them know their work is appreciated.

I received my toys today! Whee! Thanks so much to Vicki for hosting this fun swap, and thanks to the following for their wonderful contributions:

Bodecia Ariety - Jack in the Box
MichelleMarie - Easter Eggs (is she here, new username?)
LavendarLizard - Where's my honey?
icequeen07 - toy fan
VickiZ - mechanical frog bank
Paula in Seattle - Snakey (what's your username so I can leave you reps? Wigbag - zat you?)

A very fun variety, everyone! :D

Vicki Z
03-27-2008, 02:20 PM
Paula is indeed Wigbag.
Good Catch!
Sorry about that, I tried to put (name) notes with cards that didn't list user names.

I just got a note from MichelleMarie - She said she tried to sign up but was blocked from access, so it is probably just a delay at the new site.

03-28-2008, 07:23 PM
Received my great cards! Thanks to Vicki Z for hosting (you'll get feedback as soon as I am allowed to leave it to you again!)

And thanks to Asena for the cool dolphin, Vicki Z for the frog bank (love those things!), and Michelle Marie for the spiffy fairy. What great cards! The "Thank You" ATC wasn't labeled that I could see--was that from you, Vicki? If so, thanks to you as well!

Thank you all for participating in this Swap, and making it a success in spite of the fact that the Old Site closed down on us during the Swap.
If you have not yet given me an iTrade Rating, I would appreciate if you did. Also, please acknowledge cards you received from others, so folks know where their cards ended up. Thanks again.

I see that not everyone has checked in, but it also has been weeks since returns were sent out, and I have reminded everyone to post, so I am moving this swap to the Archive.
