Number of cards: 4:4
Number of participants: 30
Mediums: Hand drawn (graphite, ink, markers, color pencils, pastels, chalk, water color paint, acrylic paint, and gel pens) Rubber stamping is included along with some accents. Keep the accessories flat so the transport in the mail will be a smooth one.

Guidelines:
-All cards must be 3.5” by 2.5”, horizontal or vertical.
- Please no heavy, thick or bulky embellishments.
- No loose glitter or stickers with a white border.
- Cards should be on a sturdy like card stock. Your work should not be bleeding through the other side of the card. If so, glue card stock to back it.
- Include your user name, real name, the name of the swap and state or country you reside in.
- Submit your best work to receive the equal effort.
- A hostess card is not required, especially in this particular swap, though it is greatly appreciated.

Mailing Instruction:
- International participants are welcome. Please include $1 US or $.98 stamp for return postage and a completed address label (I will cover the extra $0.05 and the envelope)
- US participants include a SASE for your returns

The Cards:
- Please construct or create 4 cards that would depict the four seasons of the year if each season was a woman. The colors, scenery, her hair, clothing (if any) and decor must be indicative of the season.


Please upload your cards here in a reply before placing them in your gallery.

Thank you so much in advance for joining this swap. I anticipate wonderful masterpieces and am excited to see what transpires.

I had drawn out four nice cards, one for each season, with the story of a blooming flower. Then something told me to check the thread, and I realized that all the cards are supposed to be the seasons represented as a woman! Thank goodness I had only used pencil so far. Back to the drawing board for me.

Received some beautiful seasons today from MoonDog17~Summer, PaperSaga~Spring, theatrerachel~Mother Nature

...and one of my own *grin*~Fall!

If anyone else received one of their own cards and would like to trade, just pm me :)

I haven't hosted a swap yet (want to, but biting my nails), and can only imagine how difficult it must be to swap cards between players :wacko:

iTrader and Rockin Rep left for all!!!
