Ahoy Matey's Swap


Due Date: 5/7/2012
Sign Up/Withdraw Date: 4/20/2012
Number of Cards: 3 for 3
Number of Participants: 20
Medium: Any/All

In this swap you will be depicting anything & everything to do with pirates. Think pirates (of course!!), gold bullion, treasure maps, peg legs, parrots; this will be for three different ATCs. Please do not use embellishments that will make your ATCs extra thick or bumpy. Will try to swap effort for effort.

Late cards will be returned to the artist. Please be sure to notify me (by 4/20) if you need to withdraw so that we can open up spots on the Waiting List. Lack of communication will result in Neutral I-Trader. US and Canadian swappers please send a self addressed, self stamped envelope. (Postage will be whatever it cost you to send to me.) I will cover postage for International participants, however, please remember to send a self addressed envelope for me to return your swaps in. Label all envelopes with your AFA name & Swap Name. Please also label your ATCs with your swap name. Place each ATC in a plastic sleeve. An extra ATC on the subject would be greatly appreciated but is not mandatory. Please feel free to post your ATCs to the thread. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a PM or ask in the thread. PM when you are ready for my address.

Players When you receive your return ATCs for the swap; please remember to leave I-Trader for the host (me) and You Rock points for the people you received cards from. I will leave I-Trader points for you as soon as I receive (on time) your swaps. Once again, please PM me with any questions you may have. It is better to be safe than sorry & I am looking forward to this swap as it is my second hosted swap=)

03-07-2012, 10:21 PM
Hi Vicki Z, We are pleased to have you aboard. You know, in my mind I can think of what that means but can't explain it on paper/computer. I think it is a man thing.... Ha Ha Ha

Collette, I think you found something I can't draw! I suck at collage work too. Thank goodness the deadline is so far away....

....I think it would help if all your lovely players would post pics to inspire me. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Mikesatc

Ahoy me hearty, sign me up! :jimlad:

ferretgirl
03-13-2012, 11:15 PM
Mike, Your ATCs came out awesome & thanks for putting them in the thread so that everyone can take a peek!!

ferretgirl
03-13-2012, 11:18 PM
LilacDragn, Remember this is a swap depicting a pirate's life. You could do a map, gold bullion (in other words a treasure chest), even a parrot, a ship, a tropical island, anything that would be in a pirate's life. A plank coming off of a ship, a shark, a bottle of rum; just let your imagination run free.... Don' feel obligated that you have to do a pirate. Look at Mike's; he even did a sexy girl pirate. I know you can do it=)

ferretgirl
03-13-2012, 11:18 PM
Oh, Blanche!! I am so excited to have you in the swap!! Thanks for signing up=)

LilacDragn
03-13-2012, 11:21 PM
Not surprisingly, Hubby's favorite is Mike's big boobied lass. He wants me to draw a dozen of those. *sigh*

:jimlad:

Oh....btw...the kidlets think I'm nuts for getting into a pirate swap when I swore off pirates after getting stuck in The Pirates of the Carribean ride at Disney for 20 minutes last July. We got stuck in the village fire scene....it was 10 solid minutes of "yo ho yo ho, a pirate's life for me" before they killed the sound. The people behind us knew very little English, but they knew that phrase...and sang it over and over and over and over. I was about to just wade out of there when the ride started up again. I still have nightmares. *shiver*

:)

ferretgirl
03-14-2012, 04:53 AM
You'll have to tell hubs that most of us are female & we'd rather see a dashing, good-looking, Johnny Dep like pirate=)

Hmm I didn't even know they had a Pirates of the Carribean ride. Can you tell I've never been to Disneyland before?

LilacDragn
03-14-2012, 08:34 AM
When you visit Florida we'll go. :) :)

Deblit
03-14-2012, 01:20 PM
Arrgh! Me be joinin' yer crew?

ferretgirl
03-15-2012, 06:56 AM
Ahoy Matey, djl1050!! We'll be having you swab the decks!! Welcome aboard....

ferretgirl
03-15-2012, 07:00 AM
LilacDragn, I'd like that!! Ever since hubs & I started watching "Dexter" we've been intrigued by the thought of visiting FL.

LilacDragn
03-15-2012, 11:34 AM
I know of Dexter but haven't seen it because I don't have that channel. Knowing the subject matter though, the thought of it inspiring a trip to Florida scares me. A bit. :) I know one thing, I've been trying to get the heck out since, um, 1980 something....

ferretgirl
03-16-2012, 08:32 AM
LilacDragn, Yes, the subject matter is for mature audiences only but I really like the scenery that I've seen on the show. Isn't it funny that a lot of people don't like where they live & want to move away!! I have never been particularly fond of living here; I have fibromyalgia & the winter weather just keeps me frozen up tight. Hopefully when my hubby retires we can move somewhere where it pretty much stays the same temp all year 'round.

ferretgirl
03-16-2012, 08:34 AM
SingBlueSilver, I don't blame you for wanting to keep your own Jack Sparrow card. Ha Ha Ha You could always make one for you & then a slightly similar one for me, I mean the swap!!! I so admire those that can draw....

ferretgirl
03-17-2012, 05:52 PM
Wow!! Got the first set of Ahoy Mateys Swap today from Mike. They look great & thanks for the awesome mermaid. I just love the loud, bright colors!! Thanks, again, for playing!!

LilacDragn
03-19-2012, 12:24 AM
I vote you make nothing but Jack Sparrow cards so I can have one! :) I tried to draw him, but he ends up looking more like Sloth from the Goonies.

Collette, Florida doesn't look like it does on TV. At least not most of it....there are some decent spots. The summers here in my area are brutal. I mean seriously, horribly brutal. The air is so thick and humid that it's like trying to breathe underwater. The "winters" are about two months of 50 degree one day/88 degree the next day weather. We barely had a winter this year, so this summer is going to be harsh. When the winters are warmer we tend to have a lot more hurricanes and hot, hot days. That and I am not a beach person at all. Give me a mountain any day.

ferretgirl
03-19-2012, 02:56 AM
katiekellburton, Welcome to the swap!! Look forward to having you here with us=)

ferretgirl
03-19-2012, 03:04 AM
If I could draw I'd make us all a Jack Sparrow but alas it was not meant to be. I don't think I've ever seen "Goonie" before. That Sloth could make for an interesting pirate, too?

Wow, Rhonda, I never really thought about what REALLY goes on in FL!!! I guess that is why it would be a good idea to talk to someone first before a person made any big decisions, heh? I want to live some place where it is not too hot & not too cold & Goldilocks & the Three Bears aren't cutting it.....

ferretgirl
03-19-2012, 09:09 AM
Oh, SingBlueSilver, I think a pirate map is just fine. I want you to make what comes to you.

SMikell
03-19-2012, 09:21 AM
Could they be cat pirates? Saw them last night on American Dad...too funny and strangly cute. Would this be acceptable?

ferretgirl
03-19-2012, 09:25 AM
Hey, why not? A pirate is a pirate is a pirate..... Go for it=) I have some monkey pirates I was thinking about doing, too. I have a friend that lives in Valdosta. Small world, hey?

SMikell
03-19-2012, 09:38 AM
Awesome, well then, sign me up!

It is a small world. On a vacation to Orlando, met some people who knew some people that we knew. It was a crazy experience. There were staying in the motel room next to us. They heard our GA accents, heard us mention Valdosta and inquired if we knew so and so.

LilacDragn
03-19-2012, 10:15 AM
I love cat pirates! That's a great idea!

ferretgirl
03-19-2012, 10:32 AM
LilacDragn, Any type of pirate is acceptable so if you wanna do cats; go right ahead & do that. Try to make them look like Jack Sparrow, though=) Ha Ha Ha I don't think I've ever seen a cat with dreads & a pointy beard before. AS FOR EVERYONE ELSE; please don't think that you only "have" to make pirates, themselves. It is anything to do with pirates. Maybe a ship or a plank with a shark bite out of it, a dinghy, treasure map, parrot on someone's shoulder, etc., etc., etc. Don't let you imagination (or like me, lack of) hold you back=)

Vicki Z
03-20-2012, 06:23 AM
For some reason you have listed me two times on the first page.

Since you can only accept a limited number of participants, you may wish to remove the second listing of me as a player.
You have listed me as both number 6 and also as number 18.

I do wish to participate, but I only need to be listed one time.

ferretgirl
03-20-2012, 07:20 AM
Sorry, Vicki Z!! You are way more on the ball than I am. I just got back from doc appointments in Seattle & I am just a bit stressed. Thanks for bringing the double enrollment up, I appreciate it. So I'll go fix that right now......

LilacDragn
03-20-2012, 02:22 PM
Vicki makes nice cards...maybe we should keep her twice and have her make 6 cards. :)

irva
03-20-2012, 09:40 PM
count me in! Irva:cool:

ferretgirl
03-21-2012, 05:41 AM
Irva!!! Lovely that you've decided to join us!! Am happy to have you aboard....

ferretgirl

Thanks for looking in on us, Sarat!!

ferretgirl
03-21-2012, 11:08 PM
Welcome, Threshold90. Nice to have another fellow in on the swap=)

Claudzie
03-21-2012, 11:29 PM
Can I snag that last spot? I love me some pirates!

ferretgirl
03-22-2012, 07:35 AM
Hi Claudzie, Sure, you are more than welcome to grab the last spot. Happy to have you here=)

LilacDragn
03-22-2012, 10:59 PM
BTW, I call dibs on Mike's Captain Pete!! Woot!! =) I love that card!

Collete, you have some great artists signing up in this swap...this is going to be awesome!

Blanche
03-23-2012, 09:31 PM
I got an order in today for some pirate themed stamps, new embossing powder, and other crafty things to play with - hmmm, er, arrrgh! Off to go through papers now... :jimlad:

sarat
03-24-2012, 02:38 PM
Have some ideas brewing.

Please add me to the waiting list.:wideeyed:

ferretgirl
03-24-2012, 08:18 PM
LilacDragn, I'll try to keep in mind that you like Capt Jack. I agree, there are some great players in this swap. My last swap was like that, too. Can't get any better than that!!

ferretgirl
03-24-2012, 08:20 PM
Blanche, I am so envious!! I just love getting new crafty stuff; I've been so sick with a stomach virus this past few days that shopping hasn't even been an option but glad somebody else can enjoy their new "loot"......

ferretgirl
03-24-2012, 08:21 PM
Sarat, I am going to give you my spot on the board. You seem excited about the swap & I think that is just awesome. If we do have any drop-outs then I can take their place. Works for me=)

ferretgirl
03-24-2012, 08:24 PM
Vicki Z, I got your wonderful ATCs yesterday in the mail. I just love them especially the octopus one!! Thanks for being so prompt!!

Vicki Z
03-24-2012, 10:37 PM
Glad my cards arrived safely, and that you like them.

When you count your 20 participants, you can still participate as the host.
You, as host, do not count as one of the participants.
You can double check the hosting rules if you like, but you can participate even with your 20 players.

ferretgirl
03-25-2012, 06:55 AM
Vicki Z, I didn't know that; thanks for letting me know. I guess that means I can get back to slinging ideas around=)

LilacDragn
03-28-2012, 03:48 PM
First card done. Had 6 doctors appointments this week so I'm a bit behind. All is well and I'll be drawing some more ASAP! :)

Ack!! I forgot her golden hoop earring. So glad I posted this....didn't notice just by looking. :)

ferretgirl
03-28-2012, 08:11 PM
She looks nice, Rhonda. You & I must have been in the same "Boat" as I am just now getting over the most nastiest stomach bug. Had to go to ER for IVs as I am a Type 1 diabetic & got too dehydrated. They wanted to admit me but I begged & pleased not because I had cataract surgery coming up yesterday. The surgery went okay but I am still a bit blurry right now. Anywho, your girl pirate & her parrot look great=) Can't wait to get so see more ATCs coming in....

LilacDragn
03-28-2012, 11:04 PM
Goodness gracious girl! Get some sleep!! :)

ferretgirl
03-30-2012, 08:24 AM
How is everyone coming along with their Piratey swaps? I am still pretty blurry in my right eye that I had cataract surgery in but the ideas are still brewing,,,,

Blanche
03-31-2012, 06:38 PM
ferretgirl, hope you are feeling better!

Once I got started, I couldn't stop! Blimey!

Treasure Map
Pirates @ Dock
AllHands On Deck
Pirate Curse
Pirates Beware (real Henry Morgan stamp from Jamaica!)

Had me a Hearty good time!

ferretgirl
04-01-2012, 06:16 AM
Blanche!! Quite impressive; thanks so much for posting & giving some others a few ideas here & there. When I think of pirates the very first thing I always think of is that map or walking the plank=) Anywho, great job on the ATCs!!

sarat
04-01-2012, 04:20 PM
I have a few ideas swirling in my head, so I might just make some art cards today.

ferretgirl
04-02-2012, 05:04 AM
I am working on a Giraffe swap from another group & I was thinking how easy it would be to put an eye patch on my little ole giraffe.....Obviously, I need more sleep....

ferretgirl
04-02-2012, 05:05 AM
Sarat & all other participants; please do post a scan of your ATCs if you know how. If you don't know how just ask!!

Threshold90, Wow!! Awesome job on the Sea Captains!! I look foreward to getting them in the mail=) I think I just did send you my addy info but I'll do it again, just in case.....

Threshold90
04-05-2012, 02:38 PM
Mine went out in the mail today :)

ferretgirl
04-05-2012, 09:27 PM
Threshold, Thanks, I'll be on the look out for them....

ferretgirl
04-09-2012, 12:20 AM
Okay, I am going to try to see if I can link everyone's names up on the front page so when you go to leave ITrader & You Rock points you can just click on the ID of the person you are giving those points to. It may take me a while but I'll try my best=) I think that will be easier on everyone.

ferretgirl
04-10-2012, 06:08 AM
It was a good mail day today. Got Threshold90's ATCs. Even better in real life!! Got some cool ATCs from Jaceslave. Thank you both for taking the time to participate. Oh, thanks, too, Threshold90 for the goodies & Jaceslave for the extra. Muchly appreciated by both=) Oh, I am still working on getting the linking done, too.

Deblit
04-12-2012, 10:33 PM
I need to drop out of this swap. I just can't seem to get into the Pirate theme. Sigh. Sorry.

ferretgirl
04-13-2012, 06:58 AM
djl1050, Awww. I am sorry to see you go but understand. Maybe another time?

ferretgirl
04-13-2012, 07:15 AM
For my international players; just remember that it will take a couple of weeks for your ATCs to reach me. Making sure that everyone is watching the time as the swap is due May 7th. Thanks guys=)

ferretgirl
04-13-2012, 07:18 AM
Aw Rats. I posted a post for Blanche & I think the computer ate it. Blanche, I received your awesome ATCs in the mail yesterday. Thanks so much for your generosity in sending the extra ATCs & extra postage. Muchly appreciated. Thanks, again, for playing!!

Blanche
04-13-2012, 12:33 PM
Yay! I am glad they made it safe & sound - now I have to be patient to wait for returns!

ferretgirl
04-14-2012, 07:40 AM
Today brought in lovely, colorful swaps from Irva. Your ATCs are just fantastic; you made it awfully hard to pick just one!! Thanks for the extra, Irva & of course, for playing in this swap!!

ferretgirl
04-15-2012, 06:44 AM
Yay!!! I did it!!! I figured out how to link everyone up for You Rock points. Now, when you need to go leave You Rock points you can go right to the participant's original post & leave your comments. Believe me, it took me a while but I am so excited about it!! So, please don't forget to go leave points when you have received your ATCs from me. It would be greatly appreciated=)

ferretgirl
04-15-2012, 10:40 AM

Just a friendly reminder that this swap is due in a few more weeks. Once ATCs have been traded & sent out I have set up the player's names so that you can easily click on their name in the sign up list to give I-Trader points & You Rock points. If you have any questions on how to do that; please let me know. Can't wait to see everyone else's ATCs!!

Don't forget; due date is May 7th. I have linked up all the participant's names on the front page so it is easier for everyone to leave I-Trader & You Rock points. All you have to do is click on the link of the person you received from & it will take you right to one of their posts. Easy peasy. If you have any questions; please feel free to ask.

Don't forget that when you receive your swaps back to give I-Trader for the host (that's me) & You Rock points to the artists that you have received ATCs from. Everyone loves a little positive feedback now & then, right?

Yesterday I received some wonderful ATCs from a wonderful artist!! kris10satcs, thank you for the extra ATC. Once again, it was hard to pick just one. Awesome job on the ATCs...

ferretgirl

Another wonderful artist sailed in yesterday from UT. Claudzie your ATCs are also awesome. So fun to see how everyone interprets one theme. Thanks, again, for playing!!

Just wondering if mine have arrived. They should have been there by now. :( The USPS is trying to give me a heart attack, I swear!

ferretgirl

LilacDragn, Sorry to keep you waiting. Your beautiful ATCs made it here yesterday. I don't usually check my mail until late in the evening. I just love them=) Another person sending an extra & making it so hard to make a decision!! I finally picked the one with the palm tree on it as I it makes me think of the islands. All of them are great, though. You were one of the very few artists that made an octopus. That kind of surprised me. Thought there would be more octopuses, monkeys & parrots!!

ferretgirl
05-06-2012, 06:01 AM
Well, the time is almost upon us. I've heard from everyone that their swaps have not arrived yet except for one person so hopefully I'll be able to get these babies out in the mail sometime mid this week. Such a fun swap....

LilacDragn
05-06-2012, 02:36 PM
Whew and yay! The card you picked was the last one I made! I couldn't decide on a fourth after making the octopus attacking the pirate ship. That one was my favorite! :) Once I made the palm tree, I really liked that one too. I'm glad you picked it! :)

ferretgirl

Turtlemountain, Your ATCs came in the mail yesterday. Even better in real life=) Great job & thanks for participating.

ferretgirl
05-08-2012, 07:14 AM
Okay, due date is past. Will wait two more days for late swaps & then will start getting them swapped out. There are some really great ATCs in this swap; I hope that everyone will enjoy what they receive. You are all probably tired of hearing this; please don't forget to leave You Rock points for your fellow artists & if you are happy with the way the swap went; please send me an I-Trader. Let me know if you have any questions....

ferretgirl

Wow!! Got some very nifty ATCs from Kheelan yesterday. Did you draw those? I can't believe how nasty the look on those pirates' faces are!! You nailed that emotion!! Very cool & thank you for the extra. Much appreciated.

ferretgirl
05-09-2012, 07:11 AM
Fantastic ATCs also came in the mail from catladybj. Very nice & thank you for the extra. So hard to choose=)

ferretgirl
05-09-2012, 07:13 AM
Okay, all the swaps are in & I will have them done up & in the mail sometime this week. Not going to say definitely but probably will be in the mail on Friday or maybe even Saturday. Our mail gets stolen so we have to drive from the boonies to town to mail our mail. Thank you to everyone that gave blood, sweat & tears to get these done; there is so very awesome art work going on here!! See you in the mail shortly=)

ferretgirl
05-10-2012, 06:13 AM
Yay!! Got the swaps done & they will be in the mail today (5/10). Please don't forget to leave You Rock points for your fellow artists & if you are happy with how the swap went ITrader points for moi: Ferretgirl. You can go right to the name & pull them up. Thanks guys!!

ferretgirl

You guys are probably getting sick & tired of hearing from me --- but one more thing!! I signed us up for the Swap Gallery & just wanted to let you all know that there is a possibility that not everyone will get their ATC on the template. I don't know if they make a template big enough for 20 ATCs. Please do not feel offended or left out if your ATC that I picked out did not make it on the Gallery. It is nothing personal; just not enough space!! Okay? Carry on......

LilacDragn

I need to remember to somehow scan all my ATCs when I join one of your swaps!! LOL!!

ferretgirl
05-11-2012, 05:18 AM
Rhonda, If someone puts a scan of their ATCs in the thread then I don't scan them to my own personal files. If someone doesn't put their scans in the thread I just go ahead & scan them to my computer & then send the scans to Deb, who has been nice enough to do the templates up for us. Either way, most ATCs will get seen by her. Did that even make sense? Anywho, I make sure that she gets a scan of at least one ATC per artist. So if you forget to scan your ATCs in the thread; I'll catch them here at my computer.

LilacDragn
05-11-2012, 07:39 AM
I'd really like a scan of the octopus card. ;) I miss it.

ferretgirl
05-11-2012, 10:59 AM
Rhonda, Send me your email & I'll send you an attachment with the octopus ATC on it. I'll try to get it back to you sometime today after you've sent me the email addy. Vicki z had a cool octopus ATC, also.

So, Mouseit, how was the wedding? I thought the gangster theme was so awesome. Who came up with that idea; the bride or the groom? The bride looked just gorg-e-ous=)

ferretgirl

Has anyone been having any problems leaving You Rock points? This is my first time linking the artists name to their first post so I want to make sure it went through smoothly. If you don't understand a thing I just said; that is okay, too....

ferretgirl, Thanks for a great swap! And yes, the links on your first post make giving You Rocks so much easier (and quicker!)

And of course a wonderful thank you for all my lovely treasurers to Ferritgirl....keep watching your post, not long now...LOL
