Swap Due: May 31, 2012
Withdrawal Date: April 30, 2012
Number of Cards: 1/3:3 (3.5 x 7.5) The size of three cards folded.
Number of Participants: 20
Medium Used: Hand drawn (markers, colored pencils, pastels, water colors, pens, graphite, charcoal, and chalk)

Guidelines: In a story, there is a beginning, a middle, and an end, In this swap, you will choose from one of the stories listed below and draw the poignant parts that fit in the criteria previously mentioned in the three spaces provided of the folded card. The recipient will unfold the story that you illustrate.

The card: You will illustrate three cards (the standard 2.5 x3.5 measurement). The illustrations should depict the most poignant parts of the beginning, the middle and the end of the story you have chosen from the list below. You then take each ATC and glue them to the scored and folded backing of the 3.5 x 7.5 card. You should be able to fold the card like a tiny portfolio. When the viewer receives your card, the left will be folded on top of the right so when opened the viewer will clearly see the story unfold.

Know that each participant will receive one folded card. Each folded card will have three cards on the inside depicting one story. That's 3 cards in 1 from one artist each. Understand?

Titling the story on the front of the card is your choice. Remember: Fold the card. It should be able to fit in a standard 2.5 X 3.5 protective sleeve. Also on the back of the folded card should have the following information:
- the title of the swap
- the date illustration was completed
- the artist's name
- the website the swap was founded
