ALL CARDS HAVE BEEN SWAPPED!

ALL CARDS MAILED AUGUST 20, 2008
Swap Due Date - August 15, 2008
Signup/withdraw date - August 1, 2008
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants - Unlimited


Along with ladybugs and lightning bugs, I love sunflowers! Where I live, fields and fields are planted to be sold as cut flowers and I don't think there is much that surpasses the sight of a field of sunflowers against the brilliant blue of a summer sky.


Create 3 cards with sunflowers as the central/main theme. The cards can be painted, hand drawn or multi media collage, but no photographs and no heavy embellishments. All cards must be originals, no copies please. Send your best work, something that you'd like to receive in return.

Please protect your work--all cards must be sent in individual card sleeve. Please sign your work on the back of your card with your real name and user ID. Please be sure your writing is legible.

POSTAGE:

US players: A self addressed stamped envelope please.

International players: I'm happy to have you join and your postage is on me. Please send your address, clearly printed, on a piece of paper included with your returns. I'll supply an envelope as well as the postage. If you'd like to send an extra card, I'd be happy to have it but it is not a requirement to join this swap.

I like to send my swaps out within a week of the end date, please have your cards to me on the due date of August 15. If you need to withdraw, believe me, I understand that real life often steps in to upset the best of plans. Just pm me and let me know.

Please PM me when you are ready to mail and I will send you my address.

I look forward to seeing your work--feel free to scan it in and post it in the thread!

I used to think that you had to live in a really hot place too grow sunflowers but I live in Victoria(look at a map of Australia) where temperatures in winter get to -5degrees and in the summer we grow sunflower ohh..... they are soo lovely following the sun before they burst open with their smile and making the bees drunk with pollen laden bodies. oh summer in such a beautiful time in the garden.

I received my delightful sunflower cards today. From mamallama "the last days of summer are the sweetest" Such a lovely and detailed hand-painted card! From Austrailia from bsvab an amazing handsewn fabric card using so many techniques. And from alisl in The Netherlands, an outstanding card with so much detail & texture. Each of these cards blows me away and I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you all and thank you Laura for being such a great host, even considering your sad time. Thinking of you!

Laura, I haven't received an itrader from you for this swap! With my newbie rating, I sure could use it. I know you have been involved with lots of stuff with your Grandmother's death, but I thought maybe you just skipped me somehow. Thanks, Lini

LJ8677
09-03-2008, 08:54 PM
Lini, I do apologize, I normally give feedback as I receive cards from players and must have overlooked yours. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. If I have missed any others, please let me know.
