View Full Version : Happy Birthday Sonic!, Due March 1st

01-09-2011, 03:22 PM
Swap Due Date - March 1st
Signup/withdraw date - Feb 11th
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants - 12
Medium - Any!

The action game known as "Sonic the Hedgehog" which went on sale for the Megadrive (Genesis in North America) on June 23rd 1991, and now the Blue Blur will be celebrating his 20th Birthday! So in honor of that I would like to celebrate his birthday with cards! Being my first swap, space is limited, but that's ok, I'll try and do another swap like this as soon as this ones finished, so more can celebrate too!

Since this is HIS birthday, the cards need to have Sonic in them somewhere. Extra characters are welcome, and they can be from any of the games, comics, or cartoons! You can make the cards about anything Sonic, they don't have to be him eating birthday cake (But I'm sure he'd enjoy that! LOL)

Here's some samples of Sonic cards I just made for the swap, I just need to color them and pick which ones to send. :)

-- Please send along stamps equal to the amount it takes you to ship to me. For example, if I were to ship from Canada to the USA, I would need $1 in stamps to ship my envelope. So I would send along $1 in stamps inside my envelope. Just so you know, I live in CANADA, so your shipping cost will be to Canada. :) I hope this makes sense lol.
The reason why I'm doing it this way is I'm always needing stamps for swaps I sign up for, this will give me a little stockpile of them. Once I receive everything I'll buy the proper stamps to mail back out.
-- Please send a Label, SASE, or a Note that has your return address on it. Whichever one you feel to include is fine. Please print clearly, I can have difficulties reading handwriting.
-- Please ship early, as the mail can be a little slow up here. :)

Preparing the cards.
-- No heavy, thick or bulky embellishments.
-- Cards are to be the standard ATC size (2.5" X 3.5")
-- All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
-- Each card must be different.
-- Only send something you would like to receive.

-- Please post them here, we would love to see them!
-- Please PM me when you're finished for my address.
-- An extra card is awesome, but not needed.
-- Once you receive your cards, please remember to leave iTrader for me and Rep points for the participants whose cards you received. I will leave iTrader for each of you as soon as I receive your cards.
-- Late cards will be returned.
-- If all cards arrive early, I will mail them early.

So who wants to join?

Ooooh, sign me up.
Could I ask a quick question about postage? When you're saying all participants send stamps equal to the value, does this include the UK. I know not a lot of swaps are hosted within the UK, so would that be alright, if not I can send money via paypal.

01-09-2011, 04:37 PM
Yes, that would be just fine. :) Whatever it costs for you to send then envelope to me, please include the same in your envelope. Hope that helps!

01-09-2011, 09:46 PM
Are those the ones that are equal so the current value of a normal letter stamp no matter how much stamps increase in price? Those are fine, we have "P" versions in Canada. :)

01-14-2011, 12:07 AM
Oh, that's perfect then. :)

01-15-2011, 02:47 PM
I would like to join. Can we send 1.00 to cover the postage?

01-15-2011, 03:14 PM
Sure! That's fine too. :)

Everyone's work so far is AMAZING!

Tilas Am I understanding correctly that you would take USA stamps?

Can we draw different characters, or only sonic?

02-21-2011, 07:19 PM
I am putting my cards in the mail tomorrow. I hope they get to you on time. I have had some sickness in my family. I intended to mail out last week. Do you think they will make it?

02-22-2011, 09:31 PM
It may be a little close, but I think they will. If I know they're on the way I can hold off until they arrive. I'm pretty flexible. :)

02-23-2011, 06:44 PM
I got them in the mail and they said the would arrive within 7-10 days. They should be there by next Friday . Let's keep our fingers crossed. I loved this swap. And all of the cards are great.

02-23-2011, 09:13 PM
I never believe the mail people, they usually have *no* idea where the mail is actually going. XD; But that's ok, I'll wait until they arrive!

03-02-2011, 01:27 AM
Since I know everyone mailed their cards, I will wait until I receive all of them before I trade out. I'll be sure to let everyone know as they arrive. Yes, our mail is slow. Dogsled, yknow.

03-03-2011, 01:24 AM

That is so true ... I hope they all show up soon! :jiggy:

03-03-2011, 09:33 PM
Cared received from raynedrop http://www.artinsanity.com/photos/Ring.gif! Only 2 more left to arrive, then they will be swapped out!

03-05-2011, 12:53 AM
Cards in from nanette653! One more to arrive! :)

03-05-2011, 01:13 AM
I can't wait! All the cards here are just great!

03-09-2011, 03:23 AM
Kaos' cards bounced back to them, so they remailed them. Once I receive them, I will swap them out. Thank you everyone for being patient, but I wanted to be sure to give everyone a chance to get cards!

03-18-2011, 07:28 PM
Cards received from Kaos Ninja9 http://www.artinsanity.com/photos/Ring.gif! That's now everyone so I will be mailing them all out on Monday when the post office opens. :)

03-19-2011, 12:55 AM
yeah! Will be watching for them!
