CHRISTMAS WITH A TOUCH OF WHIMSY Due December 11, 2019

For this Swap, we will be celebrating Christmas, in all its glory, with an added touch of whimsy! Imagine Santa and his reindeer, preparing for their Christmas Eve journey. What about the beautiful Christmas trees, holly and ivy. Scented pine cones and a hearth side fire. Presents of dolls and toy soldiers for the children. Bells, angels, elves, nutcrackers, snowmen, fruitcake...... so many fun possibilities! Let your imagination run wild! Just make sure you add a bit of whimsy to your cards.

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.

This is an open media swap. HD/HP, collage, anything goes! Whatever you decide, make sure that you have colored backgrounds.... no plain white backgrounds! Have fun with this theme! 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.

US participants, please send a large address label and a forever stamp. I will provide the 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 is the same. 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?

We broke a record yesterday, for the LOWEST "high" temperature, on this day since 1986.
That means the high temperature for yesterday was the lowest temperature it has been since 1986.
I knew I was COLD....Brrrrrrrrrr

I never went outside all day.
I stayed inside and made ATCs.

So, please sign me up.
Cards went into the mail this morning.
