Cards are from my personal collection made by mandy, acalla, mandy & dmnh



This swap will feature stars and stripes. Your cards must have stars and/or stripes somewhere on each card. Be creative. Try not to use the American Flag. That one is too easy. :)



- All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
- No heavy, thick or bulky embellishments. Please, all cards should be flat. No buttons, yarn, feathers, brads, etc.
- All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
- Please include username on the back of cards.
- Write the swap name on the back of your envelopes.
- I swap out cards "effort for effort" as best as I can.
- International participants – I will pay for the 1st 5 people. All others must be able to include $1 or US stamps. Please include a self addressed envelope. Please no bubble envelopes.
- US Participants – Please include a stamped, self addressed envelope with .44 cents postage. If your cards are heavy, thick or have any embellishments that are not flat, please include an extra .17 stamp for each card.
- Please do not mail your cards ON the due date. Mail them early so they arrive by the due date.
- Please add either my address or your own address in the upper left corner of your return envelope.
- If you need to withdraw, it's no problem. Just let me know. I will leave neutral I-traders for those who do not communicate.


PM me if you need my address.

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.

My cards are in my Gallery and in the mail. I found it really hard to start - my muse was sadly missing until I just started playing with my highlighters. The cards then just flowed but my scanner dulled them down. Here is a preview:
