NUMBER OF CARDS: 3 for 3
NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 12
CARDS DUE: March 10th (i am in australia so post early)
MEDIA: any/all
SIGN UP/WITHDRAW: anytime just let me knoe as this is a limited place swap.


I love Alice in Wonderland so i thought what better theme for hosting my first swap

Cards can be anything Alice related, characters, scenes, traditional, gothic/dark alice, cartoon alice etc...

Please only send work you are proud to share with another member.

International players: please dont send an envelope i will provide please include a mailing label and the equivalant postage to aid in returns. i can use international stamps in other swaps.

Australian players: please include a mailing label and equivelant postage(what it costs you to send to me). i will provide envelopes. Or include stamped envelope if you prefer.

Host cards are extreamly appreciated but would never be required (i know how hard it is to just keep up with swaps lol)

This is my first hosting experience so if i have forgotten anything please let me know.

So.....Who wants to go down the rabbit hole....???
