THE LOVE SWAP~ ATC SWAP


I hosted this swap way back in 2019, it was so much fun, I thought it was time to do it again :wub:

When we think of Valentine’s Day, the first thing that comes to mind is LOVE. What comes to mind when you think about love? For this Swap, I would like you to illustrate what Love means to you. Anything goes, really. ***The only requirement for this Swap is that the word LOVE appears somewhere on your cards.***
There are so many possibilities for this swap!

The meaning of love..... what does love mean to you?
What do you love? Family, pets, flowers, natures glory, books, cherished friendships, quiet time.....There are many love themed postage stamps available, perhaps they could be a part of your design...... the possibilities are endless.

Embellishments are fine, but please be mindful of the extra postage costs for heavier additions to your cards. Let your creative juices flow, add layers, textures........wherever your muse takes you. No plain white backgrounds. Please submit your best work, something that you would be happy to add to your own collection. Host cards are not required to play, but if you chose to send one, I will cherish it!

Cards are to be standard ATC size, 3 1/2 X 2 1/2. The cards should be straight and sturdy, and in individual plastic sleeves. Please include swap name, user name, your real name, date and location on the back of all cards.

US participants: Please send a large address label and a forever stamp. If your cards are heavy and or bulky, remember to include extra postage. I will provide all envelopes!!

International participants: Please send large address label and a well concealed US dollar bill, US stamps are fine too. I will supply envelopes! Any questions? PM me.

When your cards are ready to mail, send me a pm for my address. If you have my address from a previous swap, it has not changed.

Please try to mail your cards early!! I like to be prompt in sending out your returns!

When you do receive your returns, please be kind enough to leave “you rock” points for the artists whose cards you received. If you feel that I have done a good job as a host, please leave an ITrader for me.

Who would like to play?
