For this swap I donīt want realistic looking birds, they should be whimsical, colorful, funny, happy. Let your imagination run wild!

The Rules:

* all cards must be 2.5" x 3.5" with straight edges, otherwise theyīll be returned to you

* Best work only. Iīll try to swap effort for effort

* Please keep your cards flat. NO raised buttons, beads or other embellishments please. FLAT embellishments are okay

* Please sign up by posting to this thread ONLY, NOT through a PM

* No problem if you have to drop out, but please let me know. No cards and no communication will result in a neutral iTrader

* Each card should be sent in itīs own plastic sleeve

* Please include at least username and real name on the back of your cards. We canīt leave RepPoints if we donīt know who you are

* Please donīt just put your cards loose in your envelope when mailing them. Protect them someway. Either use a cut-down 9-pocket sleeve, a little tape or something like that

* Please donīt tape the daylight out of your cards or the envelope. A little goes a long way. And the more tape is used on your envelope, the higher the risk that I damage your cards if I have to cut it open

* Iīll provide the envelopes. Please send a LARGE address label with your name and address CLEARLY typed or written on

* Iīll cover the return postage. Although a € or a "donation" to my Paypal-account would be appreciated. But donīt worry if you donīt have one

* Do NOT send a SASE, unless youīre in Germany. I canīt use them and I wonīt send them back because of the mailing costs

* Please allow enough time for your cards to get to me. Remember, I am in Germany. I usually recommend a mailing time of 2 weeks for overseas players and 1 week for european players

* It would be great if you posted your cards to the thread to inspire us

* Please post to the thread when you mailed off your cards so I can watch out for them

* Please send me a PM when you need my address. If you already have my address from a previous swap or trade - it hasnīt changed.
