04-05-2012, 02:00 AM
Due Date: June 20, 2012
Sign-up: until full/soon enough to reach me in time
Withdraw: doesnīt matter, as soon as you let me know you have to drop out
Number of cards: 3 for 3
Number of players: 20
Medium: handdrawn or handpainted only


Returns were mailed June 20, 2012 :)



WHIMSICAL MUSHROOMS


I think the title says it all - make them fun and colorful! Only handdrawn or handpainted cards are accepted.

The Rules:

* all cards must be 2.5" x 3.5" with straight edges, otherwise theyīll be returned to you

* Best work only. Iīll try to swap effort for effort

* Please sign up by posting to this thread ONLY, NOT through a PM

* No problem if you have to drop out, but please let me know. No cards and no communication will result in a neutral iTrader

* Each card should be sent in itīs own plastic sleeve

* Please include at least username and real name on the back of your cards. We canīt leave RepPoints if we donīt know who you are

* Please donīt just put your cards loose in your envelope when mailing them. Protect them someway. Either use a cut-down 9-pocket sleeve, a little tape or something like that

* Please donīt tape the daylight out of your cards or the envelope. A little goes a long way. And the more tape is used on your envelope, the higher the risk that I damage your cards if I have to cut it open

* Iīll provide the envelopes. Please send a LARGE address label with your name and address CLEARLY typed or written on

* A well-concealed €, $1-bill, LOOSE US-stamps or "donation" to my PayPal-account would be appreciated to help with postage. Iīll cover postage for those players who have no access to one of these.

* Do NOT send a SASE, unless youīre in Germany. I canīt use them and I wonīt send them back because of the mailing costs

* Please allow enough time for your cards to get to me. Remember, I am in Germany. I usually recommend a mailing time of 2 weeks for overseas players and 1 week for european players

* It would be great if you posted your cards to the thread to inspire us

* Please post to the thread when you mailed off your cards so I can watch out for them

* Please send me a PM when you need my address. If you already have my address from a previous swap or trade - it hasnīt changed.

Dear Hostess with the mostest...can these be anatomically correct mushrooms with color, or do you want pure whimsey?

Evalila
04-08-2012, 03:24 PM
Anatomically correct mushrooms with color are whimsey enough for me :)

lilbad
04-08-2012, 04:07 PM
Ok, that's what I had in mind, but thought you might want something more fanciful.

Love them Lilbad, especially nr 3!!!!

Evalila
04-09-2012, 11:50 AM
lilbad, your mushrooms are beautiful. "Whimsical" is about colors, about having fun, but itīs also somewhat open to your own interpretation. And I think thatīs part of the fun of a swap like this - most players interprete the theme in a different way. Love that :)

oddbreed
04-09-2012, 01:35 PM
OMG, please add me

Evalila
04-09-2012, 02:09 PM

Some whimsey going on here! Evalila, do you prefer the US stamps or the $. I can do either. Not sure how you will use the stamps, so thought i'd best ask.

meredithu
04-14-2012, 09:15 PM
Bubblecup! Awesome work!

Evalila
04-15-2012, 02:15 AM

So I wish you a good time in spain :)

oh Lordy!!!

catladybj
06-03-2012, 05:09 PM
lilbad, I leave this up to you. I can use either of them when I play in swaps with US-hosts.

this is what I thot, that you Could use US stamps, so that makes me wonder why some hosts refuse to take them. It makes sense for out of US folks to have them so they do not have to fool with money for their returns from the US.
I did send a dollar, and maybe an envie-but not stamped. so throw it if you do not want to use it.

Evalila
06-06-2012, 03:46 AM

My oh-so-colorfully whimsical mushrooms arrived from Bubblecup~#4, Rebecca410~untitled and MeredithU~Green Sparkles!

I'm soooooo freakin tempted to lick them and see what happens?!?! *giggle~smirk*

Leaving whimsical iTrader & Rocker for all you groovy artists!!! Weeeeeee......
