THIS SWAP IS CLOSED
ZETTI 3-RING CIRCUS SWAP

I love "zetti" and wanted to put together a zetti circus, cards that reflect what you would see at a 3-ring circus, the clowns, the different animals, tents, shows, people..similar to what I have uploaded at the end of this post.

* Cards need to be in my hands by May 9, 2008

* Because this is my first swap, the number of participants is limited to 8-US and
4-Non US

* Please include your real name and screen name and swap name on the backs of
your cards

* US participants, please include a postage-paid, self-addressed envelope for your
returns. Name of swap and your username should show on your return envelopes.
as sufficient postage on your self-addressed return envelopes. I will pay the
return postage for our Non-US participants.

* Please no heavy or bulky embellishments, otherwise let your "zetti" imagination go
wild!

* Please use plastic card sleeves when mailing to protect your cards.

* PM me when you are ready to mail your cards and I will provide my mailing address
to you.

* An extra ATC for the host is much appreciated but not a requirement.

Sure - make anything you want, within limits of course. I just received "The Tattered Circus" by Teesha Moore and it's full of "freaks" (no nudes or obscenity, of course). I am trying to see if I can obtain The Tattered Circus stamp catalog for each of you when I return the completed ATC's at the end of this swap.

I have a correction to make concerning cards received in this swap - I mistakenly thanked Bluebelle235 for cards when in fact, the cards were received from amyfaerie. Bluebelle235 is not even in this swap. Sorry about that - a mind is a terrible thing to lose:) I'm off to leave iTrader feedback for amyfaerie.

To all swap participants...I had planned on gifting each of you with The Tattered Circus stamp catalog as a "thank you", only to find out today they are out of the catalogs and won't be getting any new ones in. BUT, the good news is Zettiology.com has offered something even better! I'd tell you want they are, but I don't want to spoil the surprise. LOL (I know. I'm evil) Heee You're going to love them!!!
