Okay I've decided to do this, but be warned...I can't possibly do self portraits that are serious, sweet, or attractive! Think Hieronymus Bosch....

Hi lodiprincess

I always use Quick reply. There are some extra features in the other reply, but I've yet to use them.

The details for the swap are in the very first post in the thread. When your cards are ready you send a private message to the host/hostess to get her address :)

Welcome! It might be good fr you to read the stickies on how to trade cards, and so forth. However, just make your cards, and when you are done send a private message to the Host who will provide you with her address. Just follow her shipping guidelines, that are at the beginning of the thread.

Can;t wait to see your art!
