Mystical Mermaids, ATC Swap, Due July 12, 2018

Mermaid: A fictitious or mythical half human sea creature with the head and trunk of a woman and the tail of a fish. Conventionally depicted as beautiful, and with long flowing hair.

For this swap, the focus of the cards will be the mystical, beautiful mermaid. This is an open media swap, but a little bit of hd/hp would really be nice for these cards.

Be creative do your best work, and send in cards that you would be proud to add to your collection. I will do my best to swap media for media. Host cards are not required to play, but if you choose to send one, I will cherish it.

Cards are to be standard ATC size, 3 1/2" X 2 1/2" and the cards should be straight and sturdy and in an individual plastic sleeve. Please include swap name, user name, your real name, date and location on the back of all cards.

US participants, please send a large address label and a forever stamp, I will provide all envelopes!

International participants, Please enclose a large address label and a well concealed US Dollar bill. I will supply the envelopes. Any questions?? PM me.

When your cards are ready to mail, send me a PM for my address. If you have my address from previous swaps, it has not changed. Please try to mail your cards early!! I like to be prompt in sending back your returns.

When you do receive your returns, please be kind enough to leave "you rock" points for the artist whose cards you received, and if you feel that I have done a good job as a host, please leave an iTrader for me.

Who would like to play?

Hmm I would love to know how you organize them ;) I had a way to organize my normal swaps, but this is nothing like it, so it's not working all that well ... It's a bit too chaotic to be honest ^^ I'm still waiting for my ordered stamps etc but as soon as they arrive I know I'll be thrilled to work on this swap :)

Suzi
05-24-2018, 09:24 PM
Aiandoragon, I am ridiculously obsessive. I have little canvas bags to put swap envelopes in as they come, and numerous other things that I do to keep things straight. You would probably get a good laugh out of my system! But it works for me.

Oh my god, I completely forgot to check when I should mail my cards, and just got caught up with the actual due date. I don't think my cards will make it in time anymore, so it's probably best for me to drop out. :unsure: I'm quite bummed, I was really proud of my cards. They'll be up for trade later, I guess... I hope everyone has fun with their swapping nonetheless.
