2011 calender swap. 3:3
Signup/withdraw date - non
Swap Due Date - February 29
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants - 30

Before you think about throwing that old calender from last year away why not join me for the 2011 calender swap.

Just use you old calender or diary from last year, or any year gone by, to create your ATC's.
You can use any part of the calender you like, you can add or take away. Collage, weave, stamp, sew, whatever4 takes your fancy. Just base your atc around the calender that you have.

Put each card in a plastic sleeve.
Please submit only your best, most creative work.
Card size must be ATC standard - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
Originals only, no prints of previous work.

Please feel free to post your cards to the thread and comment on other artists' cards.

If you have questions about your cards, please send me a pm or ask in the thread.
PM me when you are ready for my address.

Please send an address label or addressed envelope - no stamps please unless posting from within UK.

Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from! - optional

I think that's everything. :yes:

What a cool idea for a swap, Mrs.Ragbrutty!

I have photos from calendars of past years saved.....could work out to be some pretty surreal combined imagery!

Look forward to having FUN!

Mine are done and might be mailed tomorrow. They're abstract and that part of the computer is not functioning. they will have to be a surprise. Actually on the desk computer, nothing is functioning and part has gone away to be repaired.

I've got a lot of old calenders and would love to join in on this swap. They make such pretty backgrounds.

Mrs Ragbrutty
02-08-2012, 11:14 AM
Glad to have you onboard Connie.
Cards look great flmgo33.
Nancy your cards are here, haven't had time to open envelope yet, just dropped through the letter box.
I can confirm that the postman is wearing shorts in the snow.

Mrs Ragbrutty
02-13-2012, 04:59 PM
You are all a bit ahead of me. I have pieces of calender strewn about my desk waiting to be made into a beautiful creation. (it might have a long wait! :laugh: ) I must try and scan my atc's, I'm so bad at this. I'm just going to make sure I'm on top of all this.

NancyL
02-13-2012, 07:53 PM
You just do what you can. Some of my ATCs get scanned and put in my gallery and some don't. I like having them in my gallery but I am perfectly happy not scanning them, too.

I'm going away for a week, a friend is getting married and we said we'd go. Thailand! A long way for a wedding. I'm going to a hen party for a bride I've never met with lots of people I don't know in Bangkok. It will be an experience.

I will see you all when I get back. I'm all sorted with sending the cards out, just waiting for a few to come. Play nicely while I'm gone.

Mrs Ragbrutty

Sorry for being awol, I have had a bad headache for a few days, I think it's my new glasses as I have a new script. Looking at the pc screen has not been a happy experience.
Anyway. Quick update, all cards received and swapped, just need to pop into envelopes and visit the post office today.
Hopefully the postman wont take too long to get your returns out to you.
