GUIDELINES-
Must be an original hand drawn or painted card. No photocopies, prints, collage.

The ATC Rules:

* All cards must be 2.5" x 3.5" with straight edges.

* Best work only please. I will try my best to swap effort for effort. Please only send in art you'd be happy to receive.

* Please sign up by posting to this thread, NOT through a PM.

* No problem if you have to drop out but please let me know. No cards and no communication will result in a neutral iTrader.

* Each card should be sent in its own plastic sleeve.

* Please include user name, real name, and swap name on the back of your cards so we can leave Rep Points. Make sure we will be able to read the user name. It would also be great if you could include species name (although not necessary).

Mailing:

* Canadian participants - a forever stamp will do.

* USA participants - Please send $1 US.

* INTERNATIONAL participants -Please send $2 US.

*Remember to include your user name and swap name on the back of the cards so the recipients can leave REP points. Remember to leave me (mcgillisj) the host an iTrader when you receive your cards which is most appreciated. It also lets me know your cards arrived safely.

* Please include a typed or neatly written address label. No need to send return envelopes. I will supply them.

* Please send me a PM when you need my address.

* Host cards are not at all required to play, but if you generously decided to send one, I would gratefully add it to my collection.

I have a love for hummingbirds. Last summer, I had easily 12-15 ruby-throated hummingbirds eating out of my 5 or 6 feeders all summer. It was so fun! And, several stayed around pretty late so I saw them get a fat as my fat fellow here.
