Swap Due Date - May 15
Signup/withdraw date - May 1
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants - 12

Rules:

This swap is to make an ATC to honor your favorite country (not your own). You can make all three of the same country or three different, as long as they're not the country you live in. You can paint, hand-draw, digital, or collage... however you want!

- All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
- All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
- Please include username, origin (state and/or country) and swap name on the back of all cards.
- Originals only - no copies or prints.
- Please only send work you are proud of.
- Please include username and swap name on all envelopes sent in.
- Late cards will be returned unswapped.

Postage Requirements:

US - please send a mailing label and as much postage as it took for you to send. (I will gladly provide a bubble envie)

International - No limit and I will provide postage. But please PM me your address so I am able to fill out the customs form. (my P.O. recommends it as a 'just in case' even if it's not required weight-wise) Misc. no-cost ephemera from your country (ie newspaper pages, labels, cancelled stamps) are always appreciated (i love to see stuff from other places) but NOT required.

I will PM you with my address when you sign up and will leave feedback when I receive your cards.

Thanks!

My favorite countries:
Germany- I visited while my son was in the Army. I was blown away by its beauty. Nothing like what I expected.
France- My husband took me there for our 15th aniversary. So much to see, so little time...
Mexico- where do I begin??

Those are gorgeous Elena! Thanks for sharing your reasons they're your favorites. Puts a personal touch to them. I like how you used the flag as the background. That's what I'm doing too. ;)

I'm sorry... but since this is my first swap on atcsforall I'm not allowed to take more than 12 signups. The final signup happened while I was at work and that would be bluehills and I wasn't able to get her on the list and the swap moved till I got home (now ;) ) kstyles and ibus i'm soooo sorry. This will be my only atc swap with a limit, and that's only 'cause i have to. :(

Lilbad I received your cards today! absolutely beautiful! Thanks for the extra!

My 15 year old went to Ireland last summer and was thrilled to see the Bunratty Castle one. That was one of the places she went. :)

Thanks for playing!

Kynara,
My Ireland trip was a high light in my life. The Bunratty folk park is indeed a wonderful place to visit. If you get a chance, you can go to my flickr site and check out the atcs I submitted to the Luck o' Irish swap. Alas, that swap seems to have gone bye bye as never received any cards back. Those are some of my favorite atcs. Thanks for hosting and your kind comment about my cards. lil

Just to let everyone know... someone had to withdraw due to unexpected events... so I offered the empty spot to kstyles since she had asked to join right after it was full.

welcome to the swap kstyles!
