QUIRKY ANIMAL PERSONALITIES

The personalities of animals never ceases to amaze me. Sometimes you can just look at an animal and see an "old soul," a "jock," or a "royal highness." This swap is dedicated to animals' quirky personalities.

Feel free to use your favorite technique and medium. Please make your cards colorful, vibrant, and quirky! Also, indicate the animal's personality on the card. (See my examples at bottom of this thread.) I have found that Bernie Berlin's altered gesso and magazine images work great for this swap.

- All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
- No heavy, bulky embellishments, or stickers.
- All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
- Please include username, real name, origin (country) and swap name on the back of all cards.
- All cards must be different. Originals only - no copies or prints.
- Please only send work you are proud of.

- Please include username and swap name on all envelopes sent in.
- International participants – I will cover your postage and return envelope. Please send me a LARGE address label.
- US Participants – Please include a SASE with 42 cents postage. (If your card is a bit on the heavier side, please include an extra 17 cent stamp.)

When you sign up, I will send you my address. When your cards are ready, please let me know when you put them in the mail.

All cards are due in my hands by the due date. Late cards will be returned.
