Chubby Unicorns!!!
Now that I have your attention, this swap is about...chubby unicorns. They are slightly larger but still lovely. It's just more unicorn to love.
I have liked unicorns since I was a little girl (and still do as an adult), so I was cruising the web, looking at unicorn images :laugh:and found this blog:
http://theuniblog.evilspacerobot.com/?page_id=6442.

She has a section about fat unicorns and I got so tickled that I HAD to host this swap.
The cards has to host at least one chubby unicorn. It can be doing something or nothing at all. All styles are welcome.

Who wants to ride a chubby unicorn?
SMikell (host)!

RCVD cards from Evalila. Cute Chubby Unicorns!

So I'm showing my husbands the two sets of Chubby Unicorns I have received. He asked if I participated or am hosting this swap. I said I'm hosting this swap. Figures, he said. All in good humor, he picks on me about still liking unicorns however helps me feed my habit.

I have some chubby unis all drawn and inked but I'm not going to have time to color them.

I needed to get them in the post today with hopes of having them make it in time, but this week has been unexpectedly hectic. I'm very sorry, but I'll have to withdraw.

SMikell
04-26-2012, 05:21 PM

RCVD cards from topacelot yesterday plus a little prize for everyone. When I ordered these little things, I'd imagine them a bit bigger....they're still cute. What are they? You will just have to wait to find out. :P

Got things ready for the swap today, when I get off work. It always takes me the longest time to swap cards. I'm worried that people will not like their returns. :eek:
It was glorious to see the herd of chubby unicorns take over our coffee table. :cute:
