View Full Version : Dark and Gothic Swap - Due April 25th

03-05-2008, 06:54 AM
# of Players: 15
Sign Up/Withdraw By: 1st April, 2008
Cards Due: 25th April, 2008
# of Cards: 3 for 3

Theme: This is for classic dark gothic themed artwork, focusing on themes such as architucture, jewellery, costuming, dark literature. This is not the place for large black-rimmed eyes and stripy clothing.

Mediums: Anything, providing you follow these rules-
* All cards must be original - please don't create 3 that look exactly the same.
* Please make sure you are sending in cards you are proud of. If you have to rush to complete them I would prefer you to pull out.

For Australians- Please include a stamped self-addressed envelope.
For American/ UK/ Canadian participants- Please send loose unused stamps from YOUR country equal to what it takes to get to me. I will be keeping these to send to hosts to cover my own returns in future swaps. I would prefer an address label at least 1.5 inchs high rather than a return envie.
For people from anywhere else- I would prefer an address label at least 1.5 inchs high rather than a return envie, and will cover the return costs myself.
For those who like to send extra gifts I would appreciate an extra card in theme, spare ribbons or blank notepaper.

If you need to drop out for any reason please let me know ASAP. I don't mind, I just like to stay organised. If you have any questions please just PM me.

Important note regarding sign-ups
This is a swap which I was hosting at the OS. I have been sent the previous sign-up list, but if you can no longer commit please feel free to let me know and I will withdraw you. If you had signed up but don't see your name on the list please PM me and I'll try to add you, I think the list I was sent might be a bit old.

Okay, I have received more lovely work from Liblue and HowlMoony.

All the cards should be in the mail in the next few days to make sure they arrive by the deadline. Please let me know when they have been mailed, so I know to expect them. Thanks!

Hi LuvLoz, I just posted my cards in the image gallery - This is my first try at using the gallery. Let's see if I can put a link in for one: DarkGothSwap (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=8163)
I will have them in the mail today.

04-08-2008, 08:38 PM
They look very nice, thoughtcrimes. Thanks for letting me know they're on the way.

04-17-2008, 01:08 AM
I have received a few more sets on the past couple of days, but haven't been able to get online. Thanks to thoughtcrimes, dina and wackystuff.

04-25-2008, 09:44 PM
The due date was yesterday, which actually happened to be a public holiday so no mail (didn't plan that well, did I? LOL) I'm waiting on a second set from Wudwooda, as their first set was lost in the mail, they should be here in the next few days.
I haven't heard from the other three people, so will assume their cards aren't coming. I'll post to let you know when the return cards are in the mail.

04-28-2008, 09:55 PM
I received Wudwooda's cards last night, so we should be all set to go. I'll psot when the cards are in the mail.

In the meantime, here are mine:

Okay, the cards are all sorted now. Turns out that everyone sent in an extra card, so I didn't need to put the ones I drew into the swap at all. You are all too kind, thanks so much for that.

Envelopes will be posted on Monday!
Please let me know when you received them, either by leaving an itrader or posting to this thread. Thanks.

05-12-2008, 10:30 AM
I received my card the other day... Thanks to the host :D. Thanks also to meow2000, eggstudio, and dina54.. Great cards.. Thanks.

05-13-2008, 04:00 PM
Thanks to amyfaerie, Meow200 and thoughtcrimes for the cards and Luvloz for hosting.

05-14-2008, 02:45 PM
Yea! I got some wonderful cards today. Thank you Luvloz for hosting a fun swap.
I received "I give my heart once" by thoughtcrimes. A great Gargoyle by Wudwooda, and "The house on the hill" by dina54. Great work!!

05-15-2008, 04:36 AM
Glad to hear that these are getting out to everyone, and that you all seem to be liking your returns.

05-17-2008, 11:54 AM
I received three gothic ladies from three gothic ladies. Thanks howlmoony, Belaymonkey and Meow2000 for your cool ATCs and to our hostess LuvLoz.

05-19-2008, 11:16 PM
Got my cards from Susan and wackystuff. Cool cards guys.

05-30-2008, 06:29 PM
I'm still waiting for my cards hope they come soon taxes mail sometimes is so slow:goofy:

06-03-2008, 07:22 PM
That is weird that they wouldn't have arrived by now, Meow. Three weeks is normally the longest mail ever takes to arrive from me, I hope they're not lost.
