View Full Version : Magical Moonlight Swap Due July 8th, 2012

Magical Moonlight Swap

Due: July 8th, 2012
Withdraw Date: Please just let me know
Swapping: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Mediums: Any

There's something inherently magical about standing in the moonlight, soaking up the silvery rays, be it through the lace of a forest's branches, out over the water, or in the vastness of a field. Whether the moon is a symbol of your faith, a transformational tool, or a reflection of the sun and your inner self, share with us your vision of the magical moon...

Have fun and be creative! Remember: there's no right or wrong interpretation, just please send in your best work only! Please follow standard ATC protocol: Cards need to be the correct size, well constructed so that nothing is falling off, and must follow the theme. No flimsy cards, please. If your cards do not fit the criteria, they will be returned at your own expense for replacement if there is time. I will not accept a sticker or a single collage image stuck randomly onto a card as a submission. Cards will be swapped like for like as best I can, in terms of quality. You may receive a variety of media in your returns, depending on the submissions received.

Do note that we are in Canada, and allow enough time for your cards to arrive. That pesky border can add a few extra days. Also, if you must drop out, please let me know as soon as you can so that we don't wait on your cards. It's only courteous. Cards must arrive on time (or early!), must all be in individual sleeves, and should be your best effort.

*Please include a LARGE filled-out address label Please don't send those tiny address labels, as Canada Post goes into convulsions about that. We don't want to break the system--it's the only fun we have on our budget!
*I will supply the return envelope.
*NO SASE unless you're IN CANADA. We cannot use US postage from here.
*Return postage = $2 US from international players; $1 US from US players or 2 regular Canadian stamps; 1 stamp from Canadian players

An extra card on theme is wonderful, but certainly not mandatory nor expected for participation. Please don't send me collage ephemera as I'm unlikely to use it, unless it's gods and goddesses.

Please PM me for the addy when you are ready to mail out.
Thanks all!

04-24-2012, 06:44 PM
May I play? Love moonlight themes...

04-26-2012, 06:41 PM
I'm a lurky loo! :D

04-26-2012, 08:50 PM
The cards should have the moon prominently featured, but other than that it's up to you!

Welcome, heatherkn!

04-26-2012, 09:00 PM
Me, too, please!

04-26-2012, 09:14 PM

If I've missed anyone, please let me know. My head is not braining properly lately.

04-27-2012, 02:57 PM
Ooooooh Great Luna! I want to join please?! Beautiful theme :)

04-28-2012, 01:00 AM
beyondshay, you are signed up.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the different takes on this theme!

05-06-2012, 01:16 PM
Was anyone inspired by the supermoon last night to do some moon artwork? I did lots of art, but not really moon-themed. I got a great jump on a Book of Shadows swap for Craftster though, making pages to send to my partner. :)

I got all my moon cards done.
We had an over-cast sky, so couldn't really see the moon, but the light through the clouds, and the vibes in the air kept me awake most of the night, so I crafted.

05-08-2012, 05:45 PM
Those are neat, heatherkn! Serious moonlight, indeed.

05-16-2012, 02:13 AM
Great cards, Heatherkn!

Welcome to the Moonlight swap, lilakey!

05-18-2012, 02:13 PM
Ugh, the scans aren't great, as I knew they wouldn't be....the whole metallic thing. The cards are much better and will be in tomorrow's mail.





05-18-2012, 07:38 PM
Looking forward to seeing the metallic versions! Some things really do scan so poorly but are beautiful in person.

05-20-2012, 05:25 AM
Finished my cards, too. They were all done with ink pen and Inktense pencils. Hope you like them.

05-21-2012, 09:12 AM
My cards are in the mail:)

05-21-2012, 10:13 AM
Alright! :D We'll be watching for them!

05-21-2012, 08:38 PM
I'm gonna lurk for now, I'm a bit over booked.

05-27-2012, 02:22 AM
Welcome, akinda joy! I'll sign you up.

Here are my cards:

05-27-2012, 02:23 AM
A W E S O M E set of cards ... hats off to our hostess.

05-27-2012, 02:24 AM
Yesterday we received from Vicki Z, Papersaga, and Evalila! I'll do iTraders once I get a chance to settle in for a bit. It's Phrixy's birthday weekend and we've been going since 8:30 this morning. o.o

Thanks CeeJay! You really popped in there fast! lol

AWESOME cards, icekat.
Particularly LOVE your Mermaid!!!:notworthy:

05-28-2012, 11:28 PM
Cynthia's cards arrived today! I'm doing as many iTraders as possible, but have to wait to do those who are in both swaps.

05-30-2012, 12:35 PM
icekat ... my cards will be posted today ...

06-07-2012, 05:15 PM
Those are great cards, and even better in person! They arrived in yesterday's mail. :)

06-07-2012, 05:17 PM
Yippee !

06-19-2012, 08:44 AM
I love doing nighttime scenes. May I join, please?

06-19-2012, 08:03 PM
Absolutely! (Wow, took me 3 tries to type that word... Must need to un-melt.) Welcome, Ligilass!

Everyone, take note that your cards should start being mailed out in the next week or so to arrive on time. I'm not a stickler, but try not to make us wait on you too much. :)

06-23-2012, 06:23 PM
Can I join in?

06-24-2012, 02:11 AM
Sure thing! Adding you now.

06-28-2012, 04:07 AM
Ligilass, your lovely moons have arrived!

06-28-2012, 07:37 AM
No problem, I'll do it now. Too much happening here. lol

07-02-2012, 12:32 PM
icekat, Snowariginal & I need to withdraw. We have had a family crisis that has had us away from AFA for the past week and we are still in the middle of handling this situation. I apologize for not letting you know sooner, but this was unexpected and has taken priority!:sad:

Snowa & I will be looking for your next great swap to join.

07-02-2012, 03:27 PM
No problem, I'll mark it down. Hope things settle down for you soon. :)

07-02-2012, 05:28 PM
I too have to withdraw, sadly. I had a lot of unexpected things come up and I just didn't get the cards done. I'm so sorry. :(

07-02-2012, 07:55 PM
No problem, thanks for letting me know. :)

07-03-2012, 09:20 PM
Art Du Junque, your cards have arrived. At least something has. lol

07-03-2012, 11:27 PM
Yeah, and before the deadline, too bad other things haven't.

07-04-2012, 06:48 PM
Akindajoy, your cards have arrived today!

07-07-2012, 01:28 PM
Jean, your cards arrived yesterday! See, I told you they'd be fine. :)

07-09-2012, 06:07 PM
Just waiting for one unnamed person to finish her cards so I can swap out. I know that unnamed person was busy swapping out Dr Who stuff, so I'm being a bit lenient... lol

07-09-2012, 08:02 PM
Lol, I can forgive her I think.

07-13-2012, 02:09 AM
<.< >.> Technically I was done, because I managed to keep misplacing them and ended up with a lot more moons than I thought.... But they're swapped and sent out as of today :D
We swapped them all at the coffee shop. :)

07-13-2012, 08:18 PM
Like she said... But we have to grab stamps still for a few, and Papersaga, I'm making cards to trade you for the Earth ones you sent.

07-15-2012, 12:58 AM
Thank you Ligilass, ArtDuJunque, and Vicki Z! There were some fab moons in this swap!

07-15-2012, 01:30 AM
Thank you to Papersaga for the moon dancer, Ligilass for Moonlight #5, and Phrixy for Moon Maiden!

What a beautiful batch of cards we had in for this swap!

07-17-2012, 10:03 PM
Thank you Ligilass for Moonlight #1, Phrixy for Mystical, and Vicki Z for your moonlit woods. Great swap Icekat!

07-18-2012, 06:03 PM
Thanks to akindajoy, VickiZ, rebecca410' and of course Icekat!

07-21-2012, 03:22 PM
What a great swap this was! Icekat, you were a wonderful hostess, never far when we had a question - always a help. Thank you, and thank you to the artists who created my wonderful cards - Evalila, ligilass, and hostess.

07-21-2012, 05:58 PM
Ah, you make me blush!

One day, Jean, we'll have to get together. Niagara is my favourite, and I haven't been in years! I miss living in the Falls and visiting all the beautiful areas nearby...

07-28-2012, 05:52 AM
Received wonderful cards today from Art Du Junque, CeeJay and Vicki Z. Thanks to you and to your fabulous hostess. Off to leave iTrader and Reps:)
