However it would be great to not end with only Easter Bunnies despite the timing of the swap!

Here's a list of fictional rabbit characters that may inspire you to draw whimsical bunnies.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fictional_hares_and_rabbits (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fictional_hares_and_rabbits)

If you prefer to explore the dark side you may consider the still life kind of rabbits (http://www.google.fr/search?tbm=isch&hl=fr&source=hp&biw=1366&bih=667&q=hare+still+life).

Remember: all your cards must be originals no copies or prints please, and send only cards you'd be happy to get in your returns.

Now most important: have fun and be creative!



- Hand drawn / hand painted ONLY.
- All cards must be standard 3.5” x 2.5” and be sent in individual plastic sleeves if you have them, and if not protect them in some way.
- All your cards must be originals, no copies or prints please, send only your best work.
- All your cards must be flat, NO EMBELLISHMENTS and nothing too bulky.
- Please include at least swap name, username and real name on the back of your cards and write your username and swap name on the back of your mailing envelope.

Spots are limited to 12 (this is my first swap), if you need to withdraw do so in timely manner to let someone else the chance to make cards, if you disappear and don't communicate you'll get a neutral iTrader.

When your cards are ready PM me for my address.

An extra ATC in this theme would be cherished but is not at all required.

Mailing and postage:

I'm in FRANCE. This means your cards can take up to 2 weeks to reach me. Please mail in timely manner. Late cards and cards that don't follow the guidelines will be returned.

Please include a LARGE label with your address including your country written or printed clearly, do not send envelopes I'll provide them.

POSTAGE: please include LOOSE stamps from your country (no cash) of the same amount you need to send me your cards, this will help me play in swaps hosted in your country.

Itrader/rep points:

I'll leave you iTrader when I receive your cards.

Posting a picture of your cards to the swap thread is completely optional but as we all like to drool over your art you'll get a rep point from me if you do so.

When you receive your returns, remember to leave iTrader for me and rep points for the people you get cards from.

So who's in?

Amazing cards artkitty I can't wait to see them in person.

02-08-2012, 02:28 PM
:cute:thank you... These are from the book "Guess how much I love you" ...used to read it to my kids. *tear* Now they are much older and smelly. :twitcy:lol.
I hardly ever draw for fun- but these bunnies made me want to draw- the way the original artist created their personality...they look so loveable.

02-08-2012, 03:06 PM
Artkitty those are beautiful! So much character.

02-08-2012, 08:10 PM

02-10-2012, 11:09 AM
Peter Rabbit cards from Suntrade arrived today.

02-10-2012, 03:24 PM
WOW! That was quick!

02-10-2012, 03:53 PM
I was expecting much longer delays with the snow!

02-16-2012, 12:45 AM
So how are your rabbits going everyone? Remember there's only a little over a month left... And you need to may early for them to reach me in time.

02-16-2012, 03:36 AM
I've made some sketches using my lop eared bunny as a model. Going for more realistic looking rabbits than I usually draw.

02-17-2012, 07:52 AM
My rabbits are done
Can you PM me your address when you get a moment.

02-19-2012, 11:52 PM
"chocolate gvanpire" That is so funny!

I want to see your card! Do show!

02-20-2012, 01:19 AM
SingBlueSilver : I hope you'll show us your cards :D

02-21-2012, 10:36 AM

02-24-2012, 04:12 PM
Amazing cards everyone so far! :D

02-24-2012, 11:32 PM

02-28-2012, 11:38 PM
Here is what I am sending

02-29-2012, 01:24 AM
Beautiful cards Aime!

02-29-2012, 04:48 AM
Aime your cards are so beautiful!

03-02-2012, 11:27 AM
rebecca410 I got your gorgeous rabbit cards today.

03-02-2012, 05:29 PM
:sad:Hi, I'm still here...Lil' Bunny Foo Foo is having some problems, not eating, so I have to take him in to see the vet today. Hopefully they can do something.

03-03-2012, 02:25 AM
Best wishes for your bunny!

03-06-2012, 09:02 AM
Fantastic cards from Aime are here!

MelanieS how is your bunny doing?

03-07-2012, 02:51 PM
Oh no SingBlueSilver sorry for your bunny.

03-08-2012, 10:37 AM
Fabulous cards from arlie707 and halla arrived today!

03-13-2012, 08:45 AM
MelanieS your awesome rabbits arrived!

03-15-2012, 11:25 AM
Amazing cards from wallyward84 arrived today.

Still waiting for those from Clopina then I'll swap them out.

03-15-2012, 01:33 PM
They are on their way lea! I've sent them a few days ago. Hopefully you should get them before the weekend. :)

03-16-2012, 12:11 AM
Thanks for the concern everyone!
Little Bunny Foo Foo is doing well. He is eating most of his normal foods, except carrots. Which makes me think there is a teeth problem. But, the all important pooping has been back to normal the last few days! Yay for poop! LOL!
So, hopefully he will recover fine, $50 for the vet is not something I want to spend regularly.
Here are my buns that I sent in...hope you like them!


03-19-2012, 04:31 PM
Hey lea, just wanted to ask if you got my cards yet... :)

03-20-2012, 09:55 AM
No Clopina your cards aren't here yet :no:

I'll give them until the weekend to show up before swapping out the returns.

03-20-2012, 01:47 PM
Seems that Italian post has become slooooowwwww. Hope they show up!

03-20-2012, 02:23 PM
I hope so too, Italy is so close to me!

03-20-2012, 03:30 PM
I hope Clopinas card swill show up! So weird it's taking so long, usually mail is fast inside Europe.

My cards are in the gallery, if anyone is interested to take a look http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=291733.

03-21-2012, 12:45 PM
Yes usually mail within Europe is fast but it depends of the countries. Mine to/from Portugal often takes longer than to/from the US. As said before I have no experience with mail from Italy.

03-21-2012, 12:54 PM
Seems that Italian post has become slooooowwwww. Hope they show up!

Yeah, really. But it actually depends. Sometimes I send mail to the US and it takes just a few days to show up, while I once sent a card in Germany and it took 2 weeks. The mail system is sooo crazy, sometimes.

03-26-2012, 08:29 AM
I'm going to mail out the returns tomorrow morning before leaving for a 1 week business trip.

Clopina: You're cards still aren't here, if they show up one day I'll send you 3 cards back (I've figured out a plan for that as I've done cards myself for the swap).

03-27-2012, 01:35 AM
Cards are in the mail, please post to this thread when you get them.

03-27-2012, 07:34 AM
Time to start stalking the postman again. :D

03-27-2012, 01:00 PM
They shouldn't take too long to Finland :).

03-29-2012, 08:04 AM
Three bunnies jumped in from our mail slot! Lea big thank you for hosting. :)
I received excellent rabbits from Aime, Artkitty and MelanieS!

I will leave iTrader and rep points next. :)

03-29-2012, 08:18 AM
Wow those were fast!

03-30-2012, 02:24 PM
Good to here the first ones arrive!

03-30-2012, 07:02 PM
Yeah! I got mine too! Leaving trader and rocks asap!

03-31-2012, 12:08 PM
I received my bunnies - they hopped in a few days ago from France! Thanks for the great returns from:ArtKitty, arlie707 and Rebecca40

03-31-2012, 12:16 PM
I see some bunnies are crossing the Atlantic with the speed of a rocket!

03-31-2012, 07:35 PM
Three bunnies hopped from my mailbox!! Carrots to: Butterflygirl24,lea67000, and suntrade. Thank you for the sweet cards and super swap! Thanks Lea!!!!

04-01-2012, 08:53 PM
:jiggy: Got my buns! Thanks to Lea for hosting such an adorable swap! And thanks to Wallyward84, Halla, and Lea67000 for the gorgeous bun buns!
***By the way...guess who is a new mama to a baby MINI lop???
ME!!! Actually, it's my 10 1/2 yr old daughter, but, well, lets be truthful, I'm going to be the one taking care of it. LOL! It is so precious and tame, compared to my Netherland Dwarf Little Bunny Foo Foo, who has major 'tude!
I will post pics of "mochi" soon! :cute:

04-02-2012, 12:17 AM
Fantastic, I'd love to see a picture!

04-04-2012, 09:03 AM
Got my Rabbits in the mail today. Love them all. Thank you lea67000, butterflygirl24, and singbluesilver. Awesome host Lea67000!!!

04-04-2012, 10:19 AM
Wow Rebecca these were quick to South Africa.

Speaking of mail speed, Clopina your rabbits still aren't here I wonder if they'll even show up one day.

04-07-2012, 10:45 AM
Any other cards arrived yet?
