View Full Version : I ♥ the Arctic DUE JUNE 19th

04-04-2012, 07:36 AM
Cards due by: June 19th in my hands!
Number of cards: 3/3
Sign up by: Just make sure I get your cards in time
Withdraw date: Just let me know, ok?
(Iīm in Sweden, count on at least 2 weeks for shipping, so donīt mail any later than June 5th)

Everything above the polar circle goes, as long as itīs winter. Think Scandinavia, Russia, Canada, the Arctic, think Eskimos and Sami and other natives, think polar bears, animals in winter fur... Just let your imagination go wild! Whether itīs cultural, flora, fauna or whatnot - is it above the polar circle and in the winter, it goes! Iīm not seeing ice queens and such though - keep it somewhat realistic, ok?

Oh, and please post pics of your cards in the thread - itīs one of the best parts of doing a swap, I think!

* All cards should be the standard size: 2.5” x 3.5”.
* All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
* All cards must be original, and each card must be different. Please do not make copies or submit prints.
* Show off your talents. Send cards that took time and care. But I know I donīt need to ask for this...
* Please don’t use hard, bulky embellishments that can upset postal machines.
* Donīt forget to put your username on the backs - we all want to know who to thank when we get our returns!

* Please PM me for my address when you are sending your cards.
* I will supply the ENVELOPES. Send LARGE address labels only.
* I will also cover the mailing cost, since I canīt exchange money here. But - if you want to, you can send along a $1 bill or stamps for overseas shipping, for me to use in future swaps.
* A host card is much appreciated, but of course not required

* When you get your returns, remember to give me (the host) iTrader, and rep points to the ones you receive cards from. No, they arenīt mandatory, but they are fun! And itīs always nice to know where your cards ends up!

* And most of all - have lots of fun! Canīt wait to see your cards!

I lived in the Arctic for 3 years and loved it! Would love to join in.

04-04-2012, 07:42 PM
OH! I'd love to play!!!! ;o)

04-04-2012, 08:46 PM
What media? HD/HP, mixed???

04-05-2012, 12:30 AM
I assume hand-drawn, hand-painted. She did an Arctic swap a few years ago on IATC and that was the case. Please join us!

04-05-2012, 02:02 AM
If itīs handdrawn/painted, Iīd love to join, too:)

04-05-2012, 04:28 AM
I was thinking both, but then I started thinking again. HD/HP, but feel free to mix up the media anyway. But the main focus need to be hand drawn/painted.

04-05-2012, 04:29 AM
Arlie707, Pam, Evalila, youīre welcome! Pam, you were already in, your cards are here and everything :)

04-10-2012, 12:39 PM

04-11-2012, 08:21 PM
lurking...have a lots of swaps to finish first.

04-13-2012, 01:34 PM

Bearded Seal

04-15-2012, 12:42 AM
Well done, Jo. A muskox is Arctic? I learn something new every day!

04-15-2012, 08:05 AM
I learned that the muskox is arctic when I checked out a children's book about the arctic from the library. I didn't know that either.

04-18-2012, 11:58 PM
What a coincidence! My 4 1/2 yr old grandson and I just read 2 books today that fit this theme perfectly - Arctic Foxes and Polar Bears. Oops - I just realized it's HD/HP - I guess I'll have to just enjoy from afar!

04-19-2012, 04:02 AM
So my cards don't work out as I wished so I'm going to withdraw.

04-19-2012, 04:42 PM
Can I play please?????

05-01-2012, 11:03 AM
Wow, sometimes I am impress how fast they arrive overseas! Good to know they are there!

05-02-2012, 12:53 AM
I guess this is when I confess to the fact that I actually signed up for this swap on Illustrated where it went no where. So.... If anyone receives a card from Pamalama she is me, Pamitha, with an alias. Some days life is really confusing.

05-06-2012, 01:20 PM
youīre lika a superhero, Pam! every superhero has an alias!

you are most welcome, catsie!

05-20-2012, 09:42 AM

Wonderful cards have arrived from poodle pup! thank you för the extra!

05-23-2012, 09:35 AM
It's absolutely acceptable. I have computer issues to, so I don't have Internet. Which means no photos... :-(

05-24-2012, 05:21 AM
pretty cards are here from evalila, thank you for the extra!

06-10-2012, 08:34 AM
Cards have arrived from arlie707! Thank you for the extra!

This swap is due in 9 days, which means that if cards can be made and mailed within the next day or two, thereīs room for more players. Otherwise, Iīm just waiting for cards from catsie, and then I can swap out. The plans I had for cards was pretty much ruined since my computer died, and I needed reference photos... Iīll see if I can come up with anything else...

06-10-2012, 03:22 PM
Not a brilliant photo (I used my phone) but my cards are done, will you sign me up please? If you are still at 24B, then I have your address, if it's changed, please PM me ;)

My fabulous returns arrived today, many thanks to Malin for hosting this swop and to Jo.on.the.go, Pamitha and Poodle Pup for their gorgeous cards :)

07-12-2012, 02:34 PM
My lovely cards arrived today! Thanks to: Evalila, Suntrade and Poodle Pup. Thanks to Malin for a fun swap.

07-13-2012, 07:45 AM
My cards arrived! Many thanks to Malin for hosting and to Ibus for the wonderful Baluga Whale, Jo.on.the.go for the Arctic Poppy and to Carolyn for the bears. If you received one from me, it has Pamalama on the back rather than Pamitha as Malin and I originally started this swap at IllustratedATCs. I hope that doesn't confuse you.

07-13-2012, 01:02 PM
I'm happy to see cards reach their destinations!

07-21-2012, 01:37 PM
I received my cards a few days ago. Thanks, Malin, for hosting. And thanks to these traders:
Pamitha - harp seal
Evalila - "jump" - whale
Ibus - snowy owl
