Number of Cards: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Number of Participants: UK unlimited. International 10

As the last swap was very popular I have decided to repeat the swap as there were some members who wanted to join but couldn't as it was full. This is for ATC sized Zentagles, which are not truly Zentangles but are the same in theory and just different in size. Find out about Zentangles here (http://www.zentangle.com/index.php).

Swap Criteria:
These must be ATC's sized and black ink on white only. Use the best materials you have available.
1.Please put the title of the swap, title of the ATC (if there is one),your user name, your real name and your country of origin as a minimum on the backs of your ATC's.
2. Please sign your work either on the front or the back of your ATC's.
3. All ATC's must fit in and be protected by a trading card sleeve.
4. Original work only and no copies. All ATC's must be different.
5. Only send in your best work. If you are not happy with what you have done and wouldn't want to receive the piece yourself then don't send it in.
6. ATC's not meeting the criteria, sub-standard ATC's and late ATC's will be returned.

UK participants please send an SSAE.
US Players please send an SAE
International players: Please send an SAE.
Please pack your ATC's securly. Put them in a polythene bag for extra protection. Please do not use large envelopes for your returns.
Make sure addresses are marked clearly.
Put your retun address on the envelope addressed to me and fill out a customs form if needed.
Remember that International mail can take up 2-3 weeks to reach me.

PS Just had an interesting thought: if one used white pen on black, would that also be a zentangle?

03-09-2008, 04:36 PM
Sorry Stargroves this one is for black on white only.

my zentangles left in the morning post - the pics came out yellowish - but in real they r black on white - one of them for lovely host Lynne :D

03-31-2008, 12:30 AM
Great nomnom and thank you for the extra

04-01-2008, 10:23 AM
I will be sending off tomorrow. Here are a few of my cards.......my version of course. I will be sending 7 cards.

Lynn the postage I have is 1p, 2p, not the first or second class stamps.

04-01-2008, 04:48 PM
Brilliant Lori. Those stamps are useful as the postage is going up soon and I can add them to the stamps I already have.

04-02-2008, 01:16 AM
Okay. I may not get the cards out until Thursday am, I don't really like to mail from my mailbox, I like to take directly to the PO and drop in the big box. Though, I did mail from my box once and the cards got to Cali in only 2 days. You just never know.

04-02-2008, 02:19 AM
I'm like you and only like to post from the post office. I've just recently had a package go missing that I posted in the mail box and it was only going in this country.

04-02-2008, 09:50 PM
My cards went out APRIL 2, 2008. Should be there soon.

04-09-2008, 04:38 PM
