Participation in a PAT, requires each player to
• Have an established iTrader rating of +15.
• Have no negative iTrader points within the past 6 months.
• Have no neutral iTrader points within the past 3 months.
(Once you sign up you cannot withdraw)

Swap Guidelines:
*Swap contains 8 groups of 5 members. Sign ups end when all spots are filled
*You May choose up to only 2 groups
*Comment in the thread on your chosen group(s) and theme(s).
(Choose theme within 48 hours of signup)
(Theme guideline below)

*Each ATC must be the standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches
*Cards must be STURDY and each in an individual plastic sleeve
*Card designs must be original, unique, and in the EXACT requested theme of your group members
*You must be willing to work on all the other themes in your group
*Make a card for each of the members of your group in their chosen theme and you’ll receive a card of your chosen theme in return from each of them
*Once you sign up with a theme you can’t withdraw, as some artist start their cards immediately
*Cards are to be in my hands on/before July 16, 2020.

On the back of your cards, each ATC MUST be labeled with the swap name, your username, your group number and the name of your recipient.
You may also choose to include the date, your real name and location, and any other info you feel is relevant.

Theme Guidelines:

Easy/Regular Themes: Easy themed: it is easy to think up a card, usually with no research: for example dragons, dogs, houses, flowers, etc. Regular themes: require a little more thought and perhaps a little research but are not difficult to find a drawing reference or collage image for. Where a generic dog would be an easy theme a specific breed would be a regular theme. If house would be an easy theme, log cabin would be a regular theme.

Challenging Themes: require research and reference. Examples are real people, scenes or characters from books, movies, tv shows, video games etc. Beyond generic dog, or specific dog breed, but perhaps “draw MY dog” or something more obscure such as dogs owned by presidents. A specific artist or style, an exact location. Themes that are difficult to interpret like illustrate a song, poem or quote. It’s always helpful to include a link to an internet reference. Any questions on where your theme lies just ask.


Mailing Guidelines:
Please PM me for my address when you’re are ready to send

USA MAILERS: Include a SASE envelope with enough postage to cover your returns: recommended at the very least, one forever stamp per each group joined (more if bulky)

INTERNATIONAL MAILERS: I will take $1 USA or a Global USA stamp per group joined

(I also have a PayPal and Venmo if either sender would prefer to pay postage that way)



A host ATC would be cherished but is never required to play.

After you have received your returns please make sure to leave an iTrader for your host (me) AND for each participant in your group.

Welcome new players, and thank you smallgirl for the update. Others, if you signed up and haven't yet given a theme or APC card numbers please remember to do so within 48hours

Groups are filling up fast but we have a flex group in number 8. If a group you wanted was full, still let me know and with enough interests we will label group 8 with said category.

All groups have now been updated... There was a glitch when updating from my phone that caused the input of some of your sign-ups not to register upon saving. Having redone it from my computer it looks like all is good now, apologies for any confusion.

I am going to bed right now, but I will check my cards when I get up and will post my theme and cards later today.

BArox818
05-05-2020, 04:10 AM
OK all is updated. Thank you.


Also group 5 please take note to the changes of JudyLee's theme... (I believe I may have misinterpreted her request)
Judy, just to verify: I previously thought the OR in your requests was in reference to with or without text but I now realize it was probably in reference to the flower in singular or plural form... LOL! The English language can get so weird especially through type when one cant physically hear the emphasis on certain words :laugh::confused:
daisy (or daisies with text) vs daisy or daisies (with text)
Its late :embarrassed: or early, depending on how you look at it. For me its late, and I need to go to bed. LOL ....long story short, Please DO add the text, correct?

JudyLee
05-05-2020, 08:38 AM
Thanks for asking- it would have been fine either way. �� But the way it is listed now is the way I intended it to be. And you’re right - it is hard to interpret type and I always say my message when I type. Kind of like talking to myself! Have a fabulous day!!!

Welcome new players: You are all signed up!

Just a note for Allegrae... by specifying suit only, you run the risk of getting duplicate numbers (perhaps more than one of your group members will think it'd be funny to make your Jack on a Jack card for instance) I'll put you in for hearts in general but wanted to bring this to your attention in case you hadn't considered the possibility.

Oh SheTurtle, I am so sorry. :( While I’d love to add you, this type of swap has very strict rules. (Site rules, not my own)
You need an iTrader score of at least 15 to join a PAT. The swap is running until July if you reach that goal before it fills please do check back! Otherwise, as long as there is an available host, a new PAT opens monthly. If you don’t make it back for this one, keep your eyes open for the next one. ;)

Yes, there are 3 more groups waiting for partners. I’m new at hosting a PAT so not sure how it normally works but I figured we’d wait until at least the end of the month to see if there are any takers.

Sounds good, I'm just trying to be mindful of mailing times because mail might be a bit slower. I'm hoping to give myself a month for mailing from Canada, just in case. Thanks!!

Understandable... Thanks for your diligence!

Welcome Lucy! We were just talking about you. ( indirectly of course) Your group members are so excited to have their group filled up.

05-21-2020, 08:43 PM
Anyone in group 8 want to switch with me for the 7 of spades for Lucy's request? I've run into the same problem as before, 3 packs of cards, all out of spades. I can do 7 of hearts, clubs, or diamonds! Please let me know if you can help me out!

Pikkis
05-23-2020, 10:36 AM
I can switch into 7 of spades smallgirl and you will make 7 of hearts, right?

So happy the group filled and I get to make the last card, as I’m also worried about the slow mail!

Pikkis
05-23-2020, 10:40 AM
So will you make the change into the group-info Barox818, that I will make LucyMc the 7 of spades and smallgirl will make 7 of hearts, please!

Pikkis
05-23-2020, 12:26 PM
Okay, I hope the switch between me and smallgirl is okay as I made the card for LucyMc and have the whole set ready to go :)!

My cards for group 8:
1) A toucan for smallgirl (Amazon rainforest animal)
2) Moon on a string for MountainsAndClouds
3) Jack the Ripper for Allegrae

Everyone is making such amazing cards! I’m so excited for you all to get your returns!
It looks like (at least) group 1 will be getting them early (unless you’re in two groups) as all cards for that group are either with me or on their way. I’ll send each group out once the collection of cards for that group is complete.

ANd for the hostess I thought you might like the creepy spider bringing a rose to the fair bingo maiden. The spider is very steampunk if you look close. I added this spider to this card a log time ago. It belonged there, but then never finished it. I mean not everyone likes creepy or odd. But your profile led me to believe that you might be the perfect new owner of this card. I finished it up for you. I tried to put the rose in the spiders mouth, but couldn't make it look right. So in one of it legs.

Awesome! I assume you meant group 7 though? (Open theme and media) It’s the only group that isn’t already full.
You got lucky lol. I had just reached out to wykyd about closing the group but your request came in before her response. Please verify it is indeed group 7 and not 8 and I will add you.

I will definitely be closing group 7 within the next day or so, as everyone should be close to finishing up to have their cards in on time. Swap deadline a little over two weeks away.

Okay so here are my ATCs. For some reason my printer was acting wonky so they look way better in real life than they do on these scans. Sorry for the poor quality.

AngelJoy = Butterflies This ATC is super glittery but you can't see that in the scan.

kehlenn = Postage Stamp This ATC has some glitter, too.

ferretgirl
07-09-2020, 12:44 AM
The last two ATCs are for TSMarie & trini. They, also, look much better in real life.

TSMarie = Irish Castle You can't tell from the scan but just about everything on this ATC is 3D. I cut out an image of the castle; glued it down & then popped up the same image with mounting foam. The sheep are also popped up. Rock of Cashel is the actual name of this castle. I just loved the background on this image & that is why I picked it.
e
trini = Sail Boat This look so much better in real life. My scan did nothing for imaging; like I said, I was having problems with my printer.

BARox I will have a host ATC for you but am sending it separate. These all are going in the mail tomorrow...
