ATC's: YESTERDAY'S CLOCKS Swap ~ Due May 28th

The idea in this swap is old fashioned clocks, grandfather’s clocks, cuckoo-clocks, melted Dali’s clock style, your clock creation, any clock that had hands on it. (Please no square digital ones).
The cards have to be hand drawn or hand painted, they can have some collage as far as we can see your drawing/painting. Not heavy, 3D embellishment, please, since normally they are not accepted by mail-machines.
This is my first swap, please do your best work put all your creativity on!!

If you do not communicate or the cards arrive late they will be sent back and neutral feedback will be given.
I am in Europe please send them on time.
Include your real name, e-mail and username in the back of the card, so everybody can give rep feedback.
Each card goes in a plastic sleeve. Please don’t send stamps, I can’t use them. You can stick a 1€ coin with cellotape or put a dollar note in one of the card’ sleeve.
Sent a label with your name and address, don’t forget to state your country, please also write your username in the back of the label.
I’ll provide the envelopes,
Adding an extra card for the host will be appreciated, but never required.
I’ll leave the I trader when I receive the cards, please do the same for me, and don’t forget to leave rep for the other players.

Lovely, you're in

04-10-2012, 06:15 AM
Yesterdays clocks, for me, they are 1950/1960's clocks, like nr 3 we had at
home, hell of a job to dust! If they are ok, I will mail them, if you had something
else in mind, please let me know. Still time enough to make new ones.

Pleased my clocks arrived ok! Just realised that i complete forgot to post them on your thread!! Not very organised at the minute

04-26-2012, 02:17 AM
Here are my cards, going in the post today.
And I have just realised that I have wrote Old fashioned Clock swap on the back of them instead of Yesterdays clock swap...so I will have to tipex and change it before posting.

They are great, Gerry!!! Love 'Killing time":biglaugh:
