Sharks!


This is a swap to celebrate the beauty of the Earth's incredible sharks! Even though they get a bad name from Hollywood, these animals are key to the survival of the ocean, and just a few simple minutes watching them swim is enough to inspire! There are so many different kinds of sharks in the world, the artistic possibilities are endless! (!!This swap is intended to showcase the formidable grace of sharks, not to portray them as monsters!!)


Feel free to explore all kinds of species of sharks, living and extinct! Also, please feel free to post your finished shark cards to the thread! Seeing others' work is always inspiring!

*All mediums will be accepted
*Please make sure you send in your best work and please no stickers or stamps
*Please no bulky embellishments unless you are willing to send extra postage for the returns!
*No loose glitter, as I'm not really a fan of vacuuming!
*All cards should be 3.5” by 2.5”, horizontal or vertical, kept safe by plastic sleeves
*On the backs of your cards, please include the name of the swap, your user name and your location

Some inspiration:

US PLAYERS: Please send a SASE with at least 44 cents worth of postage!
INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS: Please send a SAE, I will pick up the postage for the first five internationals!

Hostie cards are loved and appreciated, but are certainly not a requirement!

ALL 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!

So, who are our shark-lovers out there!?

They should be there soon, but sometimes the US postal service takes ages to get to Australia. Hope they get there in a timely manner!

Evalila

Mine havenīt arrived yet :( Hope they show up soon, canīt wait to see them!

stonehaven
05-30-2011, 09:37 PM
I'm not sure what's going on, but sometimes USPS hates me and takes forever. I sent them all out on the same day, so they should be getting to you guys soon! I'm sorta worried that US people haven't got their returns yet, either. Please let me know when you get your cards... Sometimes it takes three weeks for my mail to get to/from Canada, so maybe the sharks will make their way to Germany and Australia soon! (fingers crossed)

So sorry!!!

I'm going to close the thread, now. If you have yet to see your cards in the mail, please pm me and we shall work something out. I feel really bad about how sloooow the dumb mail is, and I don't want to sell anyone short.
