Swap Due Date -31st December 2022
Sign up/withdraw date - closed to new players 0n 13/12/22
(important- please see note below in postage info section re- posting to the UK)
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants - 20

This is a hand drawn hand painted swap. I want us to make character cards featuring humans, fantasy creatures or animals with either antlers or wings or both!
You could make Winter themed cards with deer, robins and angels, or go completely fantastical with dragons, aliens or flying monkeys. Please submit your own original art.


Card Rules-
1. All cards must be entirely hand drawn or hand painted. No embellishments.
2. Cards must be correctly sized with straight edges 2.5 x 3.5 inches, (rounded corners however are ok, I use a die to cut my cards and they all have rounded corners), make sure that they are neither flimsy, or extra thick. Please check and measure your cards before sending, (it is harder to rectify these problems after I have received your cards).
3. Cards must be fully coloured (no white backgrounds)
4. Please include your username, real name and the swap name on the back of your cards along with any other info you wish to add.
5. Host cards will be treasured should you wish to include one, but are not a requirement to take part.
6. Where possible I will exchange effort for effort and like for like cards to the best of my ability and dependant on cards received. Do your best work.

Postage info
1. The due date is 31st December. Please be mindful that I am in the UK so allow plenty of time for sending to me. We have also been experiencing some postal strikes here so it's best to send as early as you can. Any late cards will be returned to senders. Ideally try and get these made and sent off asap if you are not in the UK.
2. Please pm me when you are ready for my address to send your cards.
3. Please package your cards carefully to ensure they reach me undamaged, and send in individual plastic ATC sleeves. I will need a large return address label or piece of paper with your address on it, I will supply my own envelopes.
4. UK players please send either a first or second class stamp for return postage.
International players please send either $2 USA, a USA global forever stamp or contact me to pay via paypal. I cannot use stamps from any other countries.

Little notes...
The tit is due to those wild ones who come early (I mean REALLY early) at morning to my balcony and tweet asking for feed: in winter I hang a bird feeder, but only when is really cold and they can not find food, cause if I keep it all the year, pidgeons can arrive and bully little birds (and infest my roof). The result is that tits make incredible noise and have funny arguments between each other: is awesome spending time watching how pestiferous these cuties can be when a stranger bird arrive.

The pegasus is inspired by both a mix between a character of mine (which I bought from a friend on DeviantArt and which gave me the idea for the pose) and the ibex. Is fabulous how those animals can be agile and can climb vertical rocks!

Fantastic!

Hi everyone,
Bex has quite rightly advised that my cards don't meet the eligiility of the swap due to rule no 3. no white backgrounds, cards must be fully coloured.

Fortunately - due to all the envelopes in my house going into hiding (they do this regularly and won't come out until I buy a new pack - does anyone else have that problem???) I haven't got them in the mail yet. So I am hoping to work up the backgrounds to meet the rule.

I will post them up here again before sending so you can check them out.

Bex can you advise if this is okay?

thanks heaps

BexMadeMe
11-30-2022, 07:18 PM
Absolutely flashviv, that sounds like the perfect solution. Glad they were not already posted.

Also this card is sincerely awesome!
Love the deer and the little cardinal birdie! They're awesome together: really winter time and makes me think to a fairy tale illustration!!!! Fabulous!

And... about the Princess Leila one... Is fantastic! Your idea is adorable!
Admit that here in Italy ages ago was common having the firsts 3 movies by Lucas on TV at Christmas festivity... I spent sooooo many Xmas holiday evenings watching them!!!!
