Swap Due Date ~ August 1, 2011
Sign Up Date ~ Doesn't matter, just give enough time to get them made and sent
Withdraw Date ~ July11th
Number of Cards ~ 3:3
Number of Participants ~ 30 (international welcome and I will provide the postage)
Medium ~ Hand drawn/colored/painted Sun

Hand drawn/colored/painted “Sunnyside Up” Swap due August 1st
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/5547/large/1_MMH_sun.jpg

The swap is now full but I will establish a waiting list.


Making Your Cards:

1. Cards need to be to me by August 1st.
2. All cards must be 2.5 x 3.5 inches!!!
3. Make cards you are proud to show off and that you would be happy to receive in a swap!
4. Medium is hand drawn/colored/painted with a sun as the focal point. Some collage features are permitted as long as the sun in the card has been hand drawn and painted. Use your imagination.
5. Put username, real name, swap name, and date on back of each card so that players can leave rep points easily.
6. Appropriate cards for this swap are cards with a type of Sun being the main feature of the design. I’m emphasizing the sun as an icon which means the picture is not primarily a sunset picture. I have examples below which convey the idea of the “Sunnyside” theme of the swap. I have always loved sun faces so I couldn't resist putting this swap together.
7. Please make each card original! NO PRINTS PLEASE!!!
8. Hostess card not required but always appreciated!

Mailing Your Cards:

1. Protect ALL of your cards in plastic sleeves.
2. Send a self addressed stamped envelop.
3. International please include LARGE address label.
4. If mailed late, I will swap out with other late cards, but no guarantees.
5. Write username and swap name on your envelopes!
6. Please PM me when the cards are ready to mail and I will provide the mailing address.

If I have forgotten anything, be sure to let me know please and I'll add it to the lists!!

Put your “Sunnyside Up” disposition forward, join in and have fun with this swap!

Wonderful opportunity to add to your favorite Sun collection!

Thanks Phoenix. I like copic markers because they have a flexible point so it's easy to color in the various areas of the card.

What say you? Any weather reports out there? We had overcast turned into sunny by 10 am. A great day to take a book outside somewhere and get lost in it. Right now I'm reading "Never Enough" by Joe McGinnis....really interesting true crime book about a murderous psychopathic woman. Her victim was her ultra wealthy husband who was working for Merrill Lynch in Hong Kong at the time. What they say is true....truth is stranger than fiction! Of course I'm making cards in between times!

It has been raining at my house today! But it's slightly clearing up now. Odd summer weather for California..
That sounds like a good book! I love mysteries. I've been keeping up with a mystery/sci fi series, and I'm reading the latest, which is #11 in the series. It's the Sookie Stackhouse novels (which the HBO tv show "True Blood" is based off of)
I was thinking about reading today, but think I'll make a bunch of atcs instead!

Rachel...you and my sister would get along great. She loves all of the vampire stuff. I'm more into the true crime stories. The authors I like write them like a novel and the people in them are so fascinating. I can't believe how twisted these psychos can be!

No one card is exactly the same, though color schemes and patterns are similar. Anyway, I worked on this for a while, and hope you like them!

I will need your address, Pochadiva. Thanks for such an awesome and inspiring swap!

Linda:

Really heartbreaking to hear. You have really been having a rough time with your animals. I've lost one to cancer too and it's just so painful. I hope you find another cuddly friend soon.

LindyLu, I'm so sorry to hear that....it's so hard to lose a dog...six weeks ago I lost my dog to an autoimmune disease, and it was so heartbreaking seeing him struggle with that. I can totally relate to what you're going through....Hugs!

Thanks, everyone, for your sweet remarks about Miss Tilley. My sympathies go to each of you who have lost your 'babies'. We were fortunate that she didn't suffer..but she would have if we had tried to pursue treatment.
Yes, Pochadiva, it has been rough. Two dogs in a year but remember that we take in rescue dogs who are already older & 'iffy' when we get them, so this is going to happen. I just hoped it wouldn't be this soon.

The suns will be very welcome...I'll go check the mailbox right now.:)

This sounds so familiar to me also. The last one I lost was afflicted with an autoimmune disease. We spent a fortune on medicines and surgeries to keep him going. He lasted a lot longer than I expected (11 yrs) but the ups and downs were sure tough at times. Then we got this rescue guy and he is a love.

Rescue dogs are a great way to go. It's a win-win for the dog & the owner. Yes, it can be heartbreaking but during the time you have them it is so uplifting. However, I don't think we can take any more of them .We're getting a bit long in the tooth & short of funds. We can't rescue all of them. It would be so wonderful if more folks would go to the shelters & save some of these unwanted critters. Especially the old dogs...they need love & care, just like the cute puppies. There are enough to go around for everyone.. Well, didn't I just get up on my soapbox:rolleyes::eek:

No sunny cards in the mail...maybe tomorrow.:)

Rescue dogs are the best....Wilson was a rescue dog also, and he was such a trooper. He nearly starved to death before being rescued, had to have a leg amputated due to an early injury, and was still the sweetest-natured dog ever. When we're ready for another dog, we'll definitely go to a shelter or rescue foundation!

What a coincidence! My rescue dog's name is Wilson and he's been thanking us ever since with mounds of affection..he is a love!

Thanks andyaly.....so far so good with the health. He's going on 8 years old now so he's getting old by boxer standards.
