Alphabet Twinchies ( J K L M ) Due 6th January 2009
Alphabet Twinchies ( J K L M )Due 6th January 2009
Twinchies: Alphabet Twinchies Due 6th January 2009
2" x 2" Swap Due Date 6th January 2009
Sign up/withdraw by: 1st December 2008
Number of Cards: 4 for 4 (only 1 of each letter = 1J, 1K, 1L and 1M)

Alphabet Twinchies ~Due 6th January 2009
This Round J, K, L and M ( the remainder of the Alphabet will follow on later swaps to be held )
Theme- J K L M Twinchie

This is an open theme, but probably works better as collage or digital


Cards need to be 2" x 2" square, made from firm card, NOT paper, decorated and embellished if you wish - these are also a good size for using as card toppers.
Any embellishments need to be well secured!
NOTE :
Please make this your best work - just placing stickers/or 1 ornament on a card is not acceptable and I will return these.
I cannot justify swapping these to persons who put effort into their cards!

There are a few restrictions on theme - no porn, religious, political

Please pop cards in a little envie (paper or plastic), to protect your work, and add your user name, date and where you are from on back of each card.
Please also enclose an addressed envelope or label for the returns - UK SASE, International SAE, or label - I will cover postage for these.
The swap is for 4 cards only!
Please comment in thread, when cards are posted and when returns are received, and when you receive your returns, PLEASE don't forget to leave reps for each other, I know this is not enforcible, but most players like to know where there cards have ended up. Feedback on the swap would also be appreciated!
Please pm me for my address (if you don't have it already), when you are ready to send Twinchies to me!

The closing date for sign up / Cancellation is 1st December
Please make sure you get these posted in time, if International, allow 7-10 days minimum to get from abroad to UK! Any late cards ( without good reason) will be returned.

Well that's all the Rules - NOW GO AND HAVE FUN!

The next swaps will be as follows : -

N,O,P and Q- Feb 2009 (4 cards)
R,S and T - March 2009 (3 cards)
U,V and W - April 2009 (3 cards)
X, Y and Z - May 2009 (3 cards) I think this set will be the most challenging!!!!!!!!

Can you hold my J,K,L until the Feb swap? I will send the M, N, O, P, and Q then, and you can just return them all to me at once, to try and save a bit on postage?? It's up to you, if you'd prefer I can just send the M twinchie and you can send them two separate sets, or we can do what's above. It's all up to you, just let me know, please! :)

I had a little free time today, so I started working on some more of the set. I know there is missing pieces and they are out of order, but I had to make these because as soon as I read the letter out loud, I immediately came up with an idea I didn't want to lose. Over the next few weeks I'll be finishing my entire alphabet.


Hope you guys like them! Any input is always welcome. :)

OK fine with me I will send all back together for you , it certainly does help postage wise - although these alphabet sets are not as bad as the atcs as we have fewer players.

Ria....have I been banned from this swap since I messed up the last 3 letters? :embarrassed: If not I would like to join. I can mail the rest of the alphas to you next week.

Ria
11-29-2008, 05:09 AM
Hi! Of course you are not banned !!!!!!

I'm not that kind of host - OK so you forgot about 1 swap - things happen !!!!!! I've done the same in the past - swaps are supposed to be fun with no stress, so if you want to continue it's fine, I have added your name to list! Welcome back!

Ria

Yes I will cover postage - I'm only asking UK players to help out with postage as it's not so expensive for them!!!!!
