Media Welcome: ALL!

==The Facial EMOTION Swap==

Create card that features an Emotion on a face!

Here is a list to get you started:

OMG You must read ALL the Info below! Some of you don’t and when you mail your cards, I can tell you didn’t read it. Please do not use too much tape (Make a card envelope instead!), remember to add my address to your SASE and send an extra stamp to help with internationals. PLEASE PM ME FOR MY ADDRESS - don't ask in the thread. Please read the swap guidelines it only takes a few minutes. I WILL give neutral ratings to those who do not follow swap guidelines.

Thank you! Hugs! Love! Peace!

Requirements and Specs:

Cards Due: In My Hands April 4th!

Cards: 3 for 3

If your cards exhibit extreme lack of intention or poor workmanship, and there are no other cards with which to swap them out of equal creation, I will return them to you using the SASE provided! Send what you would like to receive! (For the insecure artists: if you’re insecure about you art, you’re doing something right LOL, honestly: if YOU like it, we will too!)

Please read these threads if you have not, to ensure your trading success! Don't assume you know this information!

ATC 101: How to Make an Artist Trading Card
(http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909)HOW TO: Pack & Mail your Cards for Swaps

Media and Card Specs:

*Please use images that are YOUR OWN or copyright free! Like the clip art images from the dover collections. Please do not assume that the images you get from an internet image search are copyright free.

* (No digital ONLY (meaning, please add other media to your digital card!) and NO photocopies). Each card needs unique hand-added-additions.
* Limit embellishments to THIN only, please.

* Nothing bulky or heavy or your cards will be returned to you at your own expense: this isn’t a chunky ATC swap *hug*

* Put your USERNAME on the backs of your cards (to make sure the other artist's know whose work they received and so I don't give you your OWN cards back!)

* Please put clear plastic sleeves on your cards! If your card won't fit, you made it too big! Cut it down!

* DO NOT tape the daylight out of your cards! A single strip of that cloudy scotch tape will be sufficient! No little bits of tape everywhere. Pleas fold the ends to create a little tab so I can easily remove it. Don’t make me eat your cards in frustration LOL. OR better yet, make a little holder out of stiff paper and staples...I should make a vid to post....


Please PM me for my address! Don't ask in the thread *hugs*

* US players Send a SASE (Self Addressed, STAMPED envelope) please, with 44 cents on the envie, please.

* ALSO, each U.S. participant is requested to send one Loose stamp (44 cents or more) to help cover international returns. This is a swap method I employ, in order not to limit international players. We are having an economic crisis right now, so if you seriously don’t have an extra, I will spare you my teddy bear wrath, but really, it’s less than 50 cents! *hugs*

* International participants must send a self-stick label (NO SASE please!) and I will cover postage and envelope. An extra ATC (in this theme only please lol) is nice, but not required. PLEASE send US postage or a dollar bill instead if you have it! <3 <3

* Put your USERNAME on your return envelope please! Your SASE MUST HAVE my Address written in the Upper Left Corner!! My PO NEEDS a return address, and if I have to write my address a thousand times, I will get really cranky, my hand writing will get bad and if there is a problem, your returns won’t come back to me and will be lost forever.

* Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and, though NOT required, Rep Points for the people you received cards from! The Mods spend a lot of time correcting iTraders that should have been Rep Points.

Note one iTrader: I will leave you one as soon as you leave me one, the reasons for which are here (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showpost.php?p=664221&postcount=414) <-- please read it if you want to know why, thanks! xoxox

Welcome in beeps ... I'll channel you some good energies right away. If you want the job, here's hoping you get it. As for snow ... we've had our quota for THE YEAR 1 AAGH ... I cleared a 6.2 foot DRIFT from my driveway last week Wed (blizzard) and I'm STILL SORE !!! lol

I'm definitely tired of the snow. We're about 3-4 hours north of you, Erica, and we still have 2-3 feet accumulated from last week. It's falling again today, and I have to go out to town today for an eye appointment. Thankfully, I only have to drive one way.

02-08-2011, 01:48 PM
Please sign me up. This sounds like fun. Thanks for the invite!

02-09-2011, 12:08 AM
Beeps: YAY! You caved! :D It's COLD here today, leaving work at 10PM it was 8 degrees, not counting windchill factor :err: I'm in Binhamton, so we usually miss all the fun the snow belt residents get! Snow is a pain..I had a bad back injury, so I can't attack the driveway like I used to! Do you have a snow plow? I thought about getting one, but they are no good with wet snow (I hear). I HOPE YOU GET THE JOB TOO! :jiggy:

Ceejay: That snow drift sounds evil!

Gina-B Welcome!! :D

02-09-2011, 12:38 AM
Ew. 8 degrees? I'd die.

02-09-2011, 08:03 AM
We were a Frigid 52 yesterday...a little colder today, I think..

Cat's Cradle
02-09-2011, 08:58 AM
We were around 6-7 yesterday. Windchill brought it down to -7. And my 11 y/o thinks he's impervious to the cold--went to school without his gloves or hat. Just a coat, and then complained that his hands were cold.

02-09-2011, 09:44 AM
we are under 10 this morning. no plow for me - i rent and shovel the sidewalk. street parking - ugh! if i end up buying a home where it snows i will be getting a blower or mini tractor. i think that would be even cooler! the last storm we had here in albany was so bad they had tractors with plows moving the snow off the streets and they are still cleaning up. usually it is just plow trucks but it was a mess. i have afternoon classes today and the cold is making me not want to get dressed and get to work. BOO.

Cat's Cradle
02-09-2011, 09:57 AM
I have boys who shovel the drive. ;) We have a lawn tractor, but we didn't want to spend the extra money for the snow blower and hood attachments.

02-09-2011, 03:08 PM
Ooo, I love faces. I wanna join~

02-09-2011, 03:11 PM

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3883/small/1_Nausea.jpg (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=210042)

02-24-2011, 10:31 PM
Oh god, nice one Robby, it makes me feel nauseous!

02-25-2011, 04:18 PM
Ha! She's perfect, Robin. Really captures the feeling.

02-25-2011, 07:55 PM
Yep... that's definitely nausea. LOL. Hope you are feeling better RobbyGirl.

03-01-2011, 04:04 PM
If there is room, please sign me up! I just signed up for Fantastic Faces and I would love to use my new knowledge for this swap!

03-01-2011, 04:31 PM
I will let you know what I think! So far I have just looked at the introduction video. I'm going to try drawing faces on Sunday, because 'faces' are the theme of the day for the Draw-a-thon.

03-01-2011, 06:49 PM
I did and I've worked through the first 3 of video series, thoroughly enjoying it!

03-01-2011, 06:56 PM
I just watched the second video, and I'm enjoying it too!

03-02-2011, 01:07 PM
Hi y'all. Just wanted to let you know I mailed my cards yesterday :)

03-02-2011, 01:34 PM
They're all great, but the green one on the bottom left especially! Good job. :)

03-02-2011, 06:04 PM
Love those colors, iowesa!

03-03-2011, 10:03 AM
I am doing the Faces workshop as well. I have only done the first video & workshop, but I have been drawing lots of faces. Not sure which ones will end up in this swap yet.

03-03-2011, 01:20 PM
Sharazoid, I'd love to see your faces! I've been drawing faces too. I painted one yesterday, actually.

03-03-2011, 03:32 PM
I printed out the workbooks, too. I really like them. :)

03-03-2011, 06:27 PM
Everyone's cards have been so bright, fun and whimsical. Can't wait to see more.

03-05-2011, 09:46 PM
I'm afraid I've bitten off a little more than I can chew, artistically, so I am sadly withdrawing from this swap. :( Have fun everyone!

03-06-2011, 10:41 AM
I'm afraid I'm in the same boat, this month just filled up in the family sector in an unexpected way. I have to withdraw but I'm still working through the class and enjoying ! Have fun all!

Cat's Cradle
03-09-2011, 03:53 PM
Me too. I've gotten too much on my plate right now and need to withdraw.

03-09-2011, 08:46 PM
Um, EQ, where are you?

03-10-2011, 11:29 AM
Hi guys! No worries you all, life happens :D

I have cards from iowesa :)

03-10-2011, 10:19 PM
My emotional faces are in my gallery.

03-11-2011, 02:36 PM
Mine are ready, should have them posted this weekend. "Forlorn" / "Perplexed" / "Pensive" / and "Flirtatious"

03-11-2011, 11:27 PM
Wow!! Awesome cards you guys :D

03-13-2011, 09:45 PM
I'm so sorry, I'm running out of time and I need to withdraw...

03-16-2011, 11:08 PM
No worries, thanks for letting me know!

03-17-2011, 12:04 AM
Agh! Where did the time go? I'm hoping to make these cards tomorrow or Friday, maybe even this weekend...

03-17-2011, 02:00 AM
Here are mine. I hope they are suitable. I'll have them in the mail to you tomorrow.

Flirtatious, Forlorn, Frazzled and Jovial

03-17-2011, 07:03 AM
lovely cards!

I'm really sorry, I'll have to withdraw. Just can't see making the deadline.

03-18-2011, 05:21 PM
Nice work everyone. I must be in a springtime mood as I'm liking all the flirty cards the best. ;)

Here are mine. I'll get them mailed out tomorrow.


03-18-2011, 06:14 PM
wow, fluff!! your detail is fantastic! awesome cards!

03-18-2011, 07:15 PM
wow, fluff!! your detail is fantastic! awesome cards!

I so agree..

I'm struggling with this, but hope to still make the deadline....

03-18-2011, 07:53 PM
Sorry, but I need to withdraw.

03-19-2011, 12:45 PM
Here is #1...

03-19-2011, 02:26 PM
HAHA, those look great you guys!

03-22-2011, 04:08 PM
Sorry, EraserQueen, but I think I have to withdraw. I've got one sketched, but human emotions just aren't coming to me right now (too much drawing a little animal I made up making funny faces!).

03-23-2011, 12:40 PM
No worries! :D

03-24-2011, 11:21 AM
My cards seem to be MIA. I am trying to figure out where they have gone (along with a bunch of other hd cards). If I don't find them by Monday, I will have to drop out. Will keep you posted.

03-26-2011, 04:41 PM
No worries, I hope you find them!

03-29-2011, 08:43 AM
I've updated the list!

03-29-2011, 09:30 AM
Annie- so sad, but I have not found the missing cards & I am laid out with a horrible cold (& possibly strep). I am going to have to bow out.

03-30-2011, 10:22 AM
Weird, my cards came back today! I used the address you gave me so I don't know what the heck happened!

03-30-2011, 02:23 PM
My cards are all done and in my gallery if anyone wants a peek.

03-30-2011, 03:09 PM
My cards are ready...may I have your addy

03-31-2011, 09:11 AM
Shara - That's okay!

Juli, I replied to your PM, it may be just another Canada Post Strikes again thing LOL.

03-31-2011, 09:12 AM
Annie - The cards have been located. I can get them in the mail today & they should be to you by Saturday. Can I reclaim my spot? Please pm your addy.

03-31-2011, 09:51 AM
kstyles - They look great!

03-31-2011, 12:30 PM
Here are my long lost (and finally found) cards!

Oh Brother! (disdain)

Sad Clowns Say So Much

Post-Punk Ingenue Ennui

03-31-2011, 07:41 PM
Oh Shara - Love Rock Star! EQ I sent them again along with the envie that they were in last time. Weird.

04-01-2011, 01:34 PM
My cards went in the mail today! Thanks Fluffycat!

04-01-2011, 03:19 PM
Awesome *** you guys!

04-01-2011, 03:51 PM
Mine went out yesterday.

04-01-2011, 04:08 PM
I need to withdraw unfortunately :(

04-01-2011, 04:33 PM
Annie, any sign of mine? I'ts been over a week...

04-02-2011, 09:38 PM
Yes! I got three sets in the mail today, I've updated the list!

04-03-2011, 12:38 PM
Glad they made it..

04-14-2011, 04:21 PM
Has anyone heard from our hostess ? ?

04-14-2011, 06:28 PM
No, to tell the truth, I had forgotten about this swap..

04-16-2011, 06:06 PM
I'll be mailing these out Monday :D

04-17-2011, 09:41 PM
EraserQueen, mine never showed up?

04-18-2011, 09:33 AM
Hi Amie! I got them Thursday!

04-18-2011, 08:42 PM
Whew!!! Thank you.

04-22-2011, 04:52 PM
got my returns today. thanks so much to kstyles for Smitten and Sharazoid for Disdain. They are wonderful. the 3rd card i got was one of my own so i guess ill be putting that in my collection to take to AFA. thanks for hosting, Andrea.

04-22-2011, 07:20 PM
Oh no! I can send you another one!

I check cards twice before sealing them in the envelopes, so if this happened to someone else, please PM me, and I will send you one of my host cards.

Sometime if you do not clearly label your cards (or if your handwriting look bad like mine lol), I can't tell easily who made the card, especially if your real name is not on the card. In theweaverhand's case though, I know she always labels her cards well, so please forgive me!

04-22-2011, 07:33 PM
its not a problem at all. i know you are juggling a million different things and no matter how careful you are...things like this still happen. the funny thing is...you sent the one that was probably my favorite of the ones i sent in so its all good. no worries at all!

04-23-2011, 02:31 PM
Mine arrived today and they are amazing, thanks to EQ for hosting...Fluffycat for clueless
Grrjules for nervous and Kstlyes for perplexed

04-23-2011, 04:27 PM
i love all the different emotions people came up with.

Well I did get my envelope back... just no cards. Wasn't torn, just wide open. :eek: I guess the post office wasn't concerned with delivering mail with the contents missing. Sorry for who ever's went missing as I know everyone worked hard on them.
