Animals In Disguise!

This swap is about animals trying to pass as other animals. For example a pig dressed up as a cat or a cow dressed up as an elephant. The possibilities are endless! Any media is accepted ^^

Due Date:
Cards are to be in my hands by September 15th. I will mail your cards as soon as possible. Please be on time so others don't have to wait.

International Players- Please include a large address label and a stamp equivalent to your postage would be appreciated but not required
US Players- Please include a large address label and a stamp for returns

1. Do your best work - I plan to swap like-for-like, as much as I can.

2. Clearly write your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME on the back of all your cards and on the back of your mailing envelope.

3. Please mail early enough to allow time to reach me.

4. An extra card for the swap host (in line with the swap theme) is greatly appreciated but is not required.

5. Embellishments are fine. The completed card needs to fit into standard pockets and the embellishments need to be securely fastened so they don't fall off during shipping. But be sure it is not too bulky or your card may not reach me.

6. Have fun!!

7. I will give iTrader feedback when I receive your cards, and will also update this post showing that your cards have arrived. In return I encourage you to give iTrader host feedback for me when you receive your swap returns, and Rep points for the artists whose cards you receive.

Here are 3 cards I made, let me know if they are ok, if not I still have time to make more.
They are - dog as elephant - Just call me Dumbo and pass the peanuts
Rabbit as butterly - I wish I could fly
Dog as Rabbit - I would rather be chasing rabbits.

07-25-2011, 04:38 PM
I had so much fun with this, in part because it's so different from what I normally do. Hopefully, people will like the results. :)

07-25-2011, 08:22 PM
Haha :D I love the cards, Cynthia! The alligator...crocodile...whichever lol, cracks me up. It looks so odd on the parrot body but it works. And I love how adorable your cards are, Gerry!

07-26-2011, 07:06 PM
Of course not! The animals can be dressed up as anything or anyone! I have some dressed up as people, other animals, and plants so far. Let your imagination run wild!

07-26-2011, 07:17 PM

09-02-2011, 09:50 AM
Im sorry but I will need to withdraw...thought I could get it done...but some things have come up...thank you for giving me an open spot

09-02-2011, 11:49 AM
No problem momoruth

09-03-2011, 03:23 AM
So, trying to understand, these cards are only animals "dressing up as other animals", or can they simply be in animals in diguise? looked in the gallery and saw both.

09-03-2011, 11:59 AM
I'll be working on my cards today :) Just letting you know I haven't forgotten about this swap!

09-06-2011, 04:11 PM
Here are my three cards. Hope they're okay. I wasn't sure if they all fit the theme well enough or not. I might try to add a bit more white to the wolf before I send it out.

09-07-2011, 01:54 AM
Oop, I guess someone already asked that question!
Hoping to get my cards out to you in the next few days.

09-07-2011, 01:16 PM
Katrinabean86--they look great! I cant wait to see them in person!

MelanieS--I was a little late to answer your question, but either is ok ^^

09-09-2011, 06:02 PM
here are mine:


09-09-2011, 07:10 PM
Heeh the crab :D

09-14-2011, 01:35 PM
MelanieS and Katrinabean86 you cards arrived ^^ They are fabulous!

09-15-2011, 01:05 AM
mailed Mon at the PO

09-15-2011, 01:07 AM
ooooh Melanie-I LOVE LOVE your kitties!! especially the bird and teddy bear.
even tho I did not use kitties, I hope I get a kitty or 2 back-HINT HINT!!!
some of mione were Winnie the Pooh folks. I cannot up;load anything right now tho.

09-15-2011, 11:19 AM
Ooh Winnie the Pooh themed sounds awesome :D I love your siggy quote. My mom's allergic so we don't have cats, but they are just too adorable and silly. My grandma owns a neurotic one. She always says that he needs a little 'couch time', aka therapy, hahaha :D

09-20-2011, 06:29 PM
All cards have arrived and I am beginning to swap them out ^^

09-26-2011, 06:30 PM
returns sent today!!!!

09-26-2011, 07:02 PM
I don't think I could live without kitties!!! I have 8, plus we have 6 indoor-outdoor cats. mine stay in my room with me, it is a big room-closed in double carport.
maybe you will get one of my cards.

09-27-2011, 08:38 AM
Im sure everyone will be happy with their returns ^^

10-07-2011, 03:29 PM
Lol I forgot all about these cards O.o oops. But what a great surprise in my mailbox! So, I have a bit of a problem because one card doesn't have info. Anyone want to claim ownership of a hippo-bunny? I'd love to thank you. It's adorable! The other two artists are SMikell and SheWolf36. Thank you both :) And thanks Larkawolf, for hosting such a fun swap :)

10-08-2011, 07:02 AM
Love Love my cards. they came at a great time. I had a bad day yesterday and i got home and the mailman left me a special present from you all. Cheered me right up.
