Date Due: JUNE 29, 2018
Number of cards: 3:3
Medium: HD/HP
Withdrawal date: None, just let me know
# of Participants: Unlimited
GIANT PANDA'S - A HEAD STUDY

This is a hand drawn hand painted swap.
I love Giant Panda's, so for this swap you will draw and color heads of Giant Panda's (shouldn't be hard it's just black and white - right?) . Only the heads and a little bit of their necks/shoulder are allowed. We don't want heads out there just floating around ungrounded so add a little of the neck to your drawing. This is a head "study" so you need to have details, details, details! Make sure your backgrounds are colored no plain white ones allowed. These are Giant Panda heads so be creative with your backgrounds maybe some bamboo shoots or trees!
That's it! Simple!

DO NOT SEND ANY TYPE OF ENVELOPE. I WILL PROVIDE ALL RETURN ENVELOPES!!!

International Players, I will provide return postage. Send your cards in individual sleeves along with a LARGE return self addressed address label.

US Players, send along with your cards, one forever stamp and a LARGE return self addressed label.

Please do not send those three in one sleeve things, they just jack up the postal rates, individual plastic sleeves are the best way to send in your cards.

A hostie card is not required, however, if you send one it will be placed in my very special hostie card book and treasured forever!

REQUIREMENTS
*Please make sure all envelopes have your ATC name and swap name on the back.
*Please make sure the backs of all your cards have your ATC name, real name, location (ie Country or State) and swap name on the back.
*Make sure all your cards are the proper size of 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches
*Please do your best work and make cards you wouldn't mind receiving yourself.

I"m so very sorry, but I just don't have the strength to finish up before the deadline. I started out with such great ideas, but my old body had ideas of its own. They just cut me loose from the hospital, and I can't even sit up long enough to draw a few lines. I really appreciated your invitation to join this swap. Don't count me out for the future.

BlancoLobo
06-25-2018, 02:37 PM
WannaBe thanks for letting me know. You take care of yourself!

Ms_Squid

BlancoLobo

Ms.Squid and Prex79 sorry you both had to withdraw but I understand and appreciate you telling me.

Kelly I did receive your gorgeous Panda's I'm just a little behind in everything they arrived safe and sound and on time!

BlancoLobo
07-09-2018, 06:22 PM
Hi all!

So sorry it's taken me longer than normal to communicate, having no computer at home is a real pain! I do have all the cards and will be mailing out your returns over the next few days, just need to get address labels and the stamps on envelopes! Thank you so much for your patience!

BlancoLobo
07-12-2018, 04:12 PM
The returns are in the mail !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I appreciate your patience with me, I now have a new computer and am in the process of updating and reinstalling all my programs (ugh!) Please let me know when you get your returns! Thank you all for playing and let me say all the cards were AWESOME!

My wonderful Pandas have arrived! I absolutely adore them. Thank you Martina-Marti, mcgillisj, and tasha for your fantastic art work. A huge thanks to BlancoLobo for hosting a very inspirational swap!

I'll leave reps when I'm allowed to give everyone their dues - I have to wait to give them to everyone right now!

BlancoLobo
07-17-2018, 11:04 AM
AWESOME ! The returns are arriving! Thank you dithespy for letting me know. It's funny that you live in France and are the first to let me know the returns arrived, I guess US mail is really slow in the US! I am very happy you liked your returns, this was one of the best swaps I have hosted regarding the awesome quality of work put into the cards!

Rina
07-17-2018, 04:08 PM

Awesome, the returns are arriving thank you to those of you who have taken the time to let me know you received your returns! Only three more people to go and I can archive this swap. Seriously everyone, this was the best quality artwork I have ever seen in all the swaps I have handled, you all really outdid yourselves! I would have loved to keep them all, believe me it was hard letting them go!
