View Full Version : Make it Purple! ~ due June 2

03-30-2012, 02:36 PM
Due Date: June 2
Withdrawals OK anytime.
Cards: 3 for 3
Participants: unlimited

Make It Purple

Send in something that should be purple; lilacs, hyacinths, grapes, eggplant, or use your imagination and make it purple; a cow, a cactus, a scenery pictures, if you can draw or paint it you can make it purple.

All shades and hues are welcome; true purple, lilac, lavender, orchid, plum, violet, amethyst. Small amounts of white or black will be ok, too. Just make sure most of the card is some color purple.

Cards can be whatever medium you like best, just make sure they are purple with only small areas of black or white.

Stickers are fine but please make sure it is not just a sticker on a card.

Please keep them flat, no bulky embellishments! They are not nice to other cards and postal machines are not nice to them.

As always, please send me cards you are proud of.

If you would be embarrassed to hand them to someone then donít mail them to me.

In return you will receive cards someone else is proud of.

I will try and send a variety of cards to each person depending on what comes in.

An extra purple card would make me happy and be greatly appreciated, but not required for joining.

**** I appreciate those of you who want to share your materials, but my talents are limited to cross stitching so what I receive for any other purpose I share with others. I donít mind passing it on I just want you all to know I do.[

Mailing detailsÖÖ.

USA folks please enclose a self-addressed envelope with either .45 or .65 postage. I really donít think 3 cards need any more than that. In the end though it is your money for postage so if you want to add more, go ahead and add more.

INTERNATIONAL folks enclose an address label, address printed clearly on a piece of paper or long self-addressed envelope. Iíll pay the return postage. (If you have a dollar bill or US stamp it will be appreciated, but if you donít have either please donít let that stop you from joining fun)

EVERYONE please secure your cards together with a bit of tape. My last 2 swaps I have received envelopes that were torn at the side or bottom but luckily all the cards were there. Not sure how much longer luck like that would be with me so the suggestion of tape.

04-28-2012, 05:56 PM
I'm hoping to be able to play, although I do have a few other swaps I should finish first. Luckily, it's an unlimited swap, so I can join, hang out and if absolutely necessary, withdraw later (which hopefully won't happen!)

04-28-2012, 06:20 PM
Welcome MardeMoomika and katlenorth!

I have lots of cards I need to look at and give iTraders for.

If I can't come back tonight after hubby goes to bed I will be here sometime tomorrow to post all the names, give proper thank yous and iTraders and to give proper welcomes to our 2 newest players.

04-30-2012, 07:52 AM
May I join?

05-01-2012, 02:05 PM
Okay, going in the mail today. Was slightly delayed by life being a buttface (and then me forgetting where I put the cards for a day, d'oh!).

Been there, done that!

05-01-2012, 02:06 PM

Not sure when you mailed but they just found their way to my box today.

I really wish the mail could talk..............the tales it would have to tell I'm sure!

(None of the glitter is showing up on the cards, scanner is rebelling against me.)

05-06-2012, 05:47 AM
xstitcher, I am so sorry but I am going to have to drop out of this swap. Perhaps another time....

05-06-2012, 02:33 PM
Sorry to see you go ferretgirl.

I sure hope for some more times!

You are always welcome.

05-06-2012, 03:17 PM

I'm rather attached to my toes. I'll send you something else.

05-10-2012, 01:07 PM
Mine are in the mail. Hope they're ok.

I meant you could come with your toe

05-11-2012, 07:43 PM
Sign me up please!

05-13-2012, 01:00 AM
Please sign me up for this swap. Purple is my favorite color. Since I was 5 years old.

05-14-2012, 06:08 PM
Got my cards made tonight. This was harder than I expected, as apparently I don't have a lot of purple images. Perhaps most of my purple stuff is more 3D. However, I prevailed in the end, although one of the cards does have some non-purple (the one with the girl - her face and hair are neither purple nor black/white) - as it's a small amount, I hope this will be ok!

05-14-2012, 10:20 PM
I would like to join this swap. Purple is one of my favorite colors.

Welcome to everyone who has asked to join.

To late to try and update anything tonight. Will be back to do it as soon as possible.

If you need my addy before I send it just ask me or post here and I know some nice angle will send it to you.

I have some cards to acknowledge, too, but so far no time to.

Thanks all!
