Number of Cards - 3/3
Number of Participants - 50
Medium - Hand drawn/painted

Theme:
Colorful Kitchens

Rules:
Original artwork only!
-- You draw/paint anything you can find in a kitchen: Aprons, chefs, food, toddler with a hand caught in the cookie jar, dog digging in the trash, coffee, appliances…anything at all kitchen related!
--card must be COLORFUL!!!
-- Stickers, photo, stamped images and etc. are unacceptable and will be returned.
--Remember the background! It should be completed too.
--Make sure all edges are glued down.
--NO bulky embellishments (keep your cards flat!). It should fit easily in a trading card sleeve.
--Make your cards sturdy. They should be more than a flimsy piece of paper. So be sure to put on a backing if necessary. If they are flimsier than an index card, it will be returned.
-- Put user name on the back of your cards!!!!!!!
--Protect your ATCs in sleeves or plastic baggies.
--Communicate if you must withdraw. It's no big deal - just let me know! I don't bother with neutral itraders even if you don't communicate...but please let me know just to be polite.
--Extra cards as host gifts are always, always appreciated, but never required!

Mailing Directions:
* Send me a PM when you are ready to mail, and I'll send you my address.
* US players Send a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope. Loose extra postage is much appreciated to help international players. Write your username and swap name on your return envelope!
*Don’t tape the daylights out of your cards! A little tape goes a long way.

* International participants: Please send a sticky address label, and I’ll provide the envelope. A US dollar/postage is appreciated.

*Put your user name and the name of the swap on the back of your envelope.

Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from! I will be leaving iTrader as cards come in.

A note on how I swap: I do my very best to swap comparable cards. Ask me in a PM if you want to know more about my swapping method and I’ll try to explain my little method.

Remember to do your best work and HAVE FUN!

Great cards!!


This thread should help you figure it out. ^_^
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=970

I normally upload things to my gallery...then right click an image in the gallery and copy image location (I use firefox as my browser). Then I click the insert image button and paste the link.

You can also use the "Go Advanced" option located right next to the "post quick reply" button. once the Go Advanced screen opens...click manage attachments. Then Browse and select an image..and then upload :)

Oh no! I'm so sorry they arrived that way! :(

It was probably because they were not packaged in anything. :/

I usually put cards with a cardboard back behind the lot of them
on either side and tape that shut.

I'll package up the returns for next swap I do a little better. :)

Meanwhile, most people have received their returns so I'll have the mods move this to the archives. Thanks for playing!
