U.S. Players: Please send a label with your name and address and a 64 cent loose stamp. I will provide the envelope. If your cards are particularly heavy - extra postage is always welcome.

International Players: Need only to send your ATCs and a label with your address - I will cover the return postage. There is no limit on international players.

Itrader/Rep. Points: I will leave Itrader comments for all players prior to mailing out your returns - please leave me an Itrader when you receive your swapped cards. A blurp on the forum thread that your cards arrived is always nice and please remember to leave rep points for the artists you received cards from.

Here is the easiest way to find players and leave points Iíve found.

Mouseit - thanks for squeezing my swap into your very busy schedule and yes any type of tree is good - if you look at the examples - some are more realistic and others are whimsical - whatever kind of trees you like is good - well maybe no Christmas trees - haha but everything else will work.

AmericanHwyFlower
02-19-2011, 03:26 PM
palm tree, orange tree, and lemon tree

tekamarie
02-19-2011, 03:33 PM

Evalila

Hmm, palm tree, cypress and pine tree?

Janet
02-19-2011, 03:49 PM
Cypress and water ash?

ICraft
02-19-2011, 04:10 PM

Just Ducky
02-19-2011, 04:10 PM
what ???? a tree guessing contest ???? and no pictures ??? bummer...

poor ducky, ain't got no idea of what trees they got in Florida... here in Michigan if it isn't a pine tree all the rest look alike... like kinda dead looking....:unsure:
guess I goona have to do a web search for.... sunny states ....trees...
Dena, you got toooo much free time on your hands....:jiggy:

ICraft
02-19-2011, 04:20 PM
Pictures - oh Ducky that would be too easy. Should I give more hints?

Okay hint-hint: No fruit trees.

tekamarie
02-19-2011, 04:37 PM
bottle brush tree? sycamore tree and then the oak...

tekamarie
02-19-2011, 04:37 PM
wait a minute what about a nut tree? do you have nut tree?

ICraft
02-19-2011, 04:39 PM
Uh-oh tekamarie lives in Florida - do you think she'll be driving down to my house to check out my trees? So far she's only got the oak right.:wub: Oh - no nut trees!

shayNOLA
02-19-2011, 05:13 PM
hummm.... since I used to live in Louisiana, I will guess cypress, palm, oak, and/or magnolia.

shayNOLA
02-19-2011, 05:15 PM
ohhh... what about Crepe Myrtle? Ours kept leaves all year in LA. They drop in Maryland. :(

ICraft
02-19-2011, 05:38 PM
We used to have a Crepe Myrtle but a bad storm took it out a few years ago - I loved that tree.

But...since little Ducky is whining about no picture - here's a photo of the 3 trees in our front yard.

Suze
02-19-2011, 05:48 PM
Ok, I wanna play, ............I'm guessing, some kind of Oak, red Maple , and Mimosa

mzspurslasso
02-19-2011, 06:01 PM
Peach, Apple, and Mango trees!

02-19-2011, 06:05 PM

Threshold90
02-19-2011, 06:40 PM
Man so many plants around us in the world yet we know animal's names even better, even though some arnt even where we live lol. So oak is there. Pine? Spruce? Um... Redwood (idk if there any of those dwn there)

shayNOLA
02-19-2011, 06:56 PM
Mimosa... I love that tree, even though it can get a little messy. Speaking of messy, I have a HUGE mulberry tree, a crab apple tree and a north american persimmon tree in my backyard. Flies can be a big problem come summer! Birds are everywhere though. Don't be surprised if you eventually see some bird paintings popping up in my gallery!
Did anyone mention Maple yet? Don't know how well they do so far south...

Mouseit
02-19-2011, 06:59 PM
Ppfftthh this little mousie has NOOOOOO Idea what would be growing in your garden..LOL Those trees in your picture don't even look like any trees I know.... heehee and our OAK trees look nothing like your oaks, so I am just going to sit and enjoy the guessing game on this one...LOL

kentuckydakota
02-19-2011, 08:08 PM
My guess on the trees- Pine, Oak, Palm?

ICraft
02-19-2011, 10:05 PM
Thumbzink - please - please get out your books. You tree lovers are a little lacking in the tree identification category. :swoon:

HINT: READY - the middle tree in the picture is native to India and the tree supposedly has healing properties - they make capsules, extracts and salves from the leaves, bark and twigs.

lacemuse
02-19-2011, 10:06 PM
orange, lemon & mimosa

ICraft
02-19-2011, 10:19 PM
Picture of the trees for our little game is at post #91 - guess what kind of trees they are. One has already been confirmed as an Oak - that just leaves 2 more. Come on guys - there's a prize for the winner. A new car - well not really a car but some kind of craft prize!

Here's a catch up on the hints:

All guesses up to now except for Oak have been wrong.

None of the trees are fruit trees.

The middle tree in the picture is native to India and the tree supposedly has healing properties - they make capsules, extracts and salves from the leaves, bark and twigs.

AmericanHwyFlower
02-19-2011, 10:25 PM
tekamarie... we here in CA have much of the same climate and trees as FL.. that was why i guessed that.

kentuckydakota
02-19-2011, 10:45 PM
Ok, how about Acacia? Mimosa?

Just Ducky
02-19-2011, 11:58 PM
wow... that picture really helped.. my super guess is..
1..... green
2..... tall
3..... bushy

so OK... I ain't a good tree person... but I still love them...

if ya have time... I got cute TRUE story... went to a Christmas tree farm one year to cut our own tree... bunch of kids and people running wild, looking for just the RIGHt tree... this one young family was nuts... and the wife standing right behind me said.... Henry, guick come here.. I love this one... I turned to see what she picked.. IT WAS DEAD... her husband came and looked a long time... but only said that he thought it was just not looking right... keep looking... but she was so taken by this beautiful totaly BROWN tree.... said it was different...
(I told ya she was nuts)... I sure wish he would have cut that dead tree down and taken it up to the tree loading men....
there they put your tree on a shaker to fell any LOOSE needles and them wrap it for easy to place on your car......... can you imagin what her Brown tree would have looked like after the tree shakey thing ???? ( I know the guys up front would have done it, just to see her tree in a pile of needles....)

How about a Elm tree and a Neem tree?

ICraft
02-20-2011, 01:16 AM
Oh Ducky that is so funny and your guess is soooo close - not!

But tekamarie good guess - Neem tree is right.

Last hint: The 3rd tree has small red berries on it. That should be a dead give away!

OK tree guessers we have the 3rd - a Holly tree was guessed by Threshold90. So since tekamarie and Threshold90 both guessed 2 out of the 3 tree species we will call it a tie.

Congrats Blake and Teka!!! I'll send your prize with your swapped cards!

Hey shayNOLA as I read back through the forum I noticed you were awesome at pulling a lurker into the swap - good job. I think you should be the swap charmer. :idea: What do you think? Of course remember - if you need any arm twisting Henchman lacemuse can help you out. Watch out for those lurkers - we want them to play!

ICraft
02-20-2011, 07:15 AM
A big welcome to MACE - so happy to have you join the swap.

Also I'm happy to see that you gave in Wil Opio Oguta - it really was the only sensible choice. haha

Threshold90 - is happy about being one of the 2 winners for our game - he says he never wins any contests. (Gee I hope he read that I was only kidding about the prize being a new car - wouldn't want him to be all disappointed when some craft items arrive at his house.:unsure:) Oh and thanks for showing the love about the forum - I appreciate it!

I honestly wouldn't know what kind of trees would florish well in Florida! :)

I've worked on a set of 6 cards yesterday, will be sending in 3 for the swap and posting the other 3 to my gallery for trade (after this swap is finished I think).

The tree is stamped on watercolor paper with distress ink, and I colored it in using ecoline inks. Then I added blossom (though on the third one it more looks like red cherries!) in form of liquid pearls. I hope you like them.

Oh and Donnacr I'm so happy to know you are on the same drawing level as I am - 3yr old. haha I always say that I'm just happy if my 3 1/2 yr old grandson recognizes the animals I draw for him when we craft together - it's so nice to draw for someone who doesn't expect much. hee-hee I like it when the players in my swaps have varied techniques - it makes it more fun for swapping.:D

They are beautiful AmyMax and you are so right about the bold shapes and deep colors - great combo. Hmm 1,2,3,4,5,6,...7 yay there's one for me. I must admit you players who have already sent in your cards are really spoiling me with host cards - I so appreciate your generosity!

My trees are still hiding in the forest...:mask:

At last, the lurker Art101, has finally given in and is joining the fun.;)

Yes Boekwrm there are some mighty majestic trees being created around here. Perhaps you need a little woodland fairy to be your muse and help you create some trees...hmmm... where to find a woodland fairy.:cute: Ok that's the best I could do - we'll just pretend it's a woodland fairy muse. haha

Oh AmyMax don't we have awesome players in the swap - talented and kind hearted - the perfect combo!!!

On occasion in my swaps I will get a PM or two about a special card - you know how it is - sometimes there is a card that is just for you and you must have it - right? I mean sometimes there is money involved - $100 or so for the perfect card but if you really want it then it's worth it. hahaha TOTALLY kidding about that - the moderators just had a heart attack - no - no - I would never take money for a swap.;)

Elena - your gorgeous trees arrived today - but 4 host cards? That's a bit much don't you think? Oh wait - you are doing 6 for 6 - haha! (Such a funny girl today :jiggy: - or so I think) But there's still an extra for me - yay! The cards are awesome and I'm glad more players will have the opportunity to receive one of your beauties!

Climbing the stairs to my art-attic this evening
there was a strange singing voice coming from behind the door.
A strange greenish light was shining through the cracks!! :wideeyed:

What should I do?

I peeked round the corner and...
saw a real woodland-fairy :wubclub:
working my paints and scissors and glues and more.
She was happily creating some decent trees for me.
Great trees! :yes:
Alas...she worked rather wet.
I'm so sorry, you will have to wait till tomorrow to see what she made me.:laugh:

This thread cracks me up. So many jolly tree creators. Who knew trees were connected to the funny bone.

I knew it BOEKWRM the Woodland Fairy muse worked - yay I can't wait to see what she helped you create. haha

No-no players it's not the host cards that make me happy - well they do but it's just all these pretty trees - think about it - even without any host cards I'm going to get to admire over 150 beautiful trees - oh it's so fun!!! If you guys don't get your returns you'll know why - haha I made off with those 150 trees - I'll have the largest ATC tree collection ever - :swoon: Oh wait no - no I must stay strong - I can't become a suspended or banned player!! hee-hee The trees are making me go kooky.:wub:
