Swap Due Date - April 15
Signup/withdraw date - April1
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants --unlimited


INTERNATIONAL SPOTS ARE FULL
YOU CAN SIGN UP IF YOU HAVE THE MEANS TO SEND ME US DOLLAR OR CANADIAN POSTAGE OR MONIES.

Break out those watercolour crayons, pots, pencils, markers, paints, reg crayons and create gorgeous Fantasy Flowers.
Imagine a garden with polka dotted leaves, vibrant hues of purples and blues. Where the sun shines and the flowers constantly smile. Spring is just around the corner lets celebrate it in style.
.

POSTAGE REQUIREMENTS
PLease send in 2 Canadian stamps if from Canadian, 1 dollar if from the the US, if any raised embellishments are used on your cards, you need to send in one dollar extra per card, as it does cost me 96 cents to send to the US and if over 1/8 of an inch it automatically goes to $1.92. SO plan your cards according. Do not send US postage stamps i can't use them.

Please ALL participants send in a self addressed envie.

International: Are welcome. Please send in your envie. Of course as always an extra card is welcome. Not necessary. Please though think about not embellishing your cards.
I will be limiting to 5 however if you have the means to send postage please let me know.

On another note, why is it there are so many blues here and why do they all have mess maker in their title?

altermyworld
02-29-2008, 05:48 PM

why is it there are so many blues here and why do they all have mess maker in their title?

That is toooooooo funny :twitcy: I wonder if we compared our profiles if there is something in common with us - :idea: maybe we are really triplets seperated at birth :eek:

:twitcy: :twitcy:

Ang, we all made up something about mess maker. I didn't look at anyone else's profile, I just made up mine that, at the time, seemed totally different than anyone else's! I should look and see what other blues have as their title.

Break out those watercolour crayons, pots, pencils, markers, paints, reg crayons and create gorgeous Fantasy Flowers.

Was that a restrictive list? Or may we use other techniques as well?

I was thinking of alcohol inks on aluminum. Something like the image attached -- but with a flower instead of a leaf.

Will update as soon as they come in, i would say your cards should be mailed by now, as it can take up to 2 weeks to get to me here in Canada.
I normally wait approx 5 weekdays to receive stragglers however not much over that as it is only fair to those mailing on time.
