Swap Due Date - October 17, 2020
Signup date - October 3, 2020
Number of Cards - 4:4
Number of participants - Unlimited
Media - open, must be attached to a 2 x 3 playing card and the top left number/suit must be showing
(no bulky embellishments please!)

This will be a 4:4 swap - that is, you will send in a full set of four (♥, ♦, ♣, ♠) Kings**


APC Swap: Flowers and a Little Something Else: KINGS, due October 17, 2020

Continuing on with the series, we will be making Altered Playing Cards with the theme of Flowers, and a Little Something Else. Meaning the main theme of the card should be Flowers, and then you will add something else along with the flowers. Your “something else” can be absolutely anything that you want! Birds, butterflies, insects, people, animals, you get the idea. Anything goes!

Please note:
- Real playing cards must be used.
- APCs must be the standard size of 2.5" x 3.5". Note this is POKER size, not bridge size! (Wrongly sized cards will be returned).
- Cards must have one of each suit (incorrect cards will be returned. It makes swapping very difficult.)
- The top left suit and number must be visible/uncovered.
- Flat embellishments only please.
- Please include username and your location on the back of your cards.
- Originals only - no copies or prints. (Cards can be duplicates as long as they're still individually created and we have more than 5 people in the swap!

US players: send me a mailing label and a forever stamp.

International players: send me a mailing label and $1

Yes, this is the beginning of a new deck. Actually, Aces were/are first. That swap is listed here in open swaps too, with a due date of Sep 17. I plan to have each number card due the 17th of each month, with about 2 months to work on each set.

Donnacr, I made you an ace. I'll try to get it mailed today. It's great if you want to send me one, but not necessary. If you do, just save it to go in my Postage Stamp ATC returns. :)

Here are my Kings. They will go out today from the post office. I LOVE this set!!

I found 4 stamps from Australia that fit the theme perfectly. Each stamp has a flower plus a pollinator. I was able to dig through old note cards and find flowers that match or coordinate with each stamp beautifully.

Here are my Kings. I used an ad for 'Rain' a touring band that covers the Beatles. I used one member on each from the Sgt. Pepper era and one with all 4 from earlier, maybe the Ed Sullivan Show time period...but in color...showing my age here. I think the papers coordinate with the time periods.

I am so flu like tired. Not contagious just that tired you get, where you can only lay around, and not do much. I guess it is more like CHEMO flu. Anyway. Since I can't seem to do a ton of stuff. I grabbed my envelope of KINGS to thank the artists.

Here we go.

I got a PRAY, with robins, the bird, I adore it. Robins are my favorite birds Made by ANGELJOY

DONNACR, I got one of her cats! Of course I love cat cards.

DNEWTON972 A butterfly with " be awesome today". I will try

From JudyLee a sunflower,

Thanks Suzi for giving me themes I adore. Off to do the thanks via you rocks and itrader.
