Mixed media trees swap!

This swap is for all the mixed media/collage artists out there who want to do some neat work with a tree theme. For this theme, think layered backgrounds! Trees in the foreground and background. Anything and everything goes--but you have to use at least three different medias/elements for this swap (For example, collage background, ink work, and stamps; or tissue/acrylic background and collaged foreground). Have fun!

Swap Details/rules:

1) ALL Participants - please write your real name and userId on the back of all of your cards. Please mail cards in plastic protectors (the flimsy kind is fine).

2) US participants: send a SASE. Please write your userID on the back of your envelope. If you plan on sending a bubble envelope or large envelope instead of a regular-sized envelope, note that shipping rates have changed and you should probably have $1 of postage or so on it.

3) International participants: Please send me an address label. I would appreciate an extra card or some country-specific stamps/empherma since I will be covering your return postage (a little under $1 USD per envelope at our new rates) but this is not necessary. I will have to limit international participants to 20 members b/c of shipping costs.

4) All cards are due IN MY HANDS Feb 15th. Returns will be mailed promptly after the deadline and late cards will be returned to you or, if I have enough, swapped with other late cards. We have lots of time to complete this swap, so please be on time.

5) You are welcome to send one or two sets of cards. If you are sending an extra set of cards, please send extra stamps to cover the increased shipping (58 cents instead of 41 cents).

6) Please PM me for my address when you are ready to ship . I leave feedback for all cards right before I swap them.

Thanks for considering my swap!

Great! These are being swapped tonight when I get back from school. Although I'm sick, I think swapping will be good for the body, just like chicken soup! ATCs are good, lol.

02-23-2008, 05:23 PM
Thanks to my significant other, Reuben, the cards have all gone out in the mail today! Thank you everyone for a great swap :)

I love the cards I received today from Deedles, Bubblecup and goatgoddess ~ thank you all so much! And special thanks to Adriayna for hosting this great swap!

02-27-2008, 10:58 AM
I received mine yesterday, as well, but wouldn't you know I left them at home so I can't give people rep points until I look at them to remember who made what. I can say that they were a great bunch of cards! Thanks Adriayna for hosting and for the card you sent. I love it!

02-27-2008, 11:07 PM
I'm excited about my cards can't wait till they come.
Dana's swaps are always so fun

02-27-2008, 11:07 PM
Yay! So glad everyone likes their cards. I think whoever is here has gotten here by this point, so I will leave Itraders for everyone tomorrow night:).

02-29-2008, 12:22 PM
Ok everyone, I left feedback for everyone here who I could find in the member list. Did I miss anyone? Please post here if so...if I missed giving you feedback, it wasn't intentional!

02-29-2008, 06:25 PM
Loving my trees-- off to leave rep points!

02-29-2008, 06:30 PM
I got my great trees, and left everybody rep points. Thanks for a great swap!

03-01-2008, 10:09 AM
Great! Who hasn't yet gotten them? Some of our international folks I assume....

03-02-2008, 03:07 PM
I'll get mine a week or two down the road... its so FARRRRR to CALGARY.....!!!

I received my cards 2/27 from: Sparklet, Bubblecup, Natasha, ScrapperSue, amyfaerie, and pschafe1. Thanks to all for the great cards and to Adriayna for hosting! I'm behind on some cards that I need to get out tonight. I'll leave rep points for all when things slow down.

03-04-2008, 12:39 AM
haven't gotten mine yet but sometimes they take the long way around :) I'm sure they will show up soon.

03-04-2008, 09:23 AM
GG, really? That worries me! :(.

03-04-2008, 11:06 AM
Cleaned off my desk just to be sure - but haven't seen them yet - I'm sure they will show up at some point. no worries.

03-04-2008, 11:27 AM
Ok, well if they don't come by the weekend, I'll send you some of my own hostess cards or create you some more :).

03-04-2008, 08:14 PM
Yay! So glad you liked them :).

03-05-2008, 02:15 AM
No cards made it to Canada yet. Hoping soon.

03-05-2008, 09:29 AM
Geez, those are taking a long time :(

03-05-2008, 05:55 PM
I know it does take forever but it makes me feel better that Maxie hasn't rec'd hers yet.

03-05-2008, 06:00 PM
Yay! Glad to hear they arrived :)

03-05-2008, 07:35 PM
I received my pretty little forest today! Thank you Dana for hosting, and thanks to Electablue, Lemay, and Kimberly Fish for these terrific cards. I am thrilled.

03-05-2008, 08:09 PM
Yay! Another set has arrived!!!!

03-06-2008, 01:41 PM
yeah baybee cards came today off to leave reps

03-06-2008, 04:49 PM

GG, still no word on your cards? :(

03-06-2008, 05:29 PM
not yet but haven't seen the mail today yet - no worries - they will show up and if not that is part of the risk. Weather has been bad for most of the county so they may just be hung up somewhere along the way - OY sent some to south Texas and it took over 3 weeks and that was within the same state. so I haven't lost faith yet.

03-06-2008, 05:42 PM
Ok. Well, as I said before, if they don't arrive soon, I will make you some new ones and I'm sure other members will as well.

03-07-2008, 12:17 AM
that is so sweet, thanks - let's give it a another week to see if they show up. :)

Sue W
03-07-2008, 08:31 PM
My cards arrived yesterday afternoon ... they are all lovely!! I've gone a way for a the weekend so I'll leave rep points when I get home on Monday.

03-07-2008, 08:38 PM
Great news! :)

03-09-2008, 02:07 AM
Atcs arrived in Canada on Friday. Thanks for lovely work to Corrie04[Twilight Tree], kinderposht[bamboo type design], Bubblecup[Collage Tree], Asena[Palm Tree], and two trees from ginabee[Living Sponge Forest] and {Study guide2]. Thanks to all and to our busy host.

03-09-2008, 08:49 AM

So GG still has not received cards? :(. Is anyone willing to make her another card? I will, and I will send her one of my hostess cards too.

03-09-2008, 09:46 AM
I think I still have an extra card that I made for the swap, so I could give her that one. Also, I think I am going to meet her in person this afternoon, so I could just bring it to her in person!

03-09-2008, 10:32 AM
That would be awesome! I will be sending her two or three. GG, did you send 3 or 6 originally?

03-09-2008, 10:32 AM
Is anyone interested in a round 3? I will start a new swap if so! :)

03-09-2008, 12:15 PM
That would be great. Then she'll have at least 4 cards. Send directly to GG, no use wasting postage :)

03-10-2008, 12:34 AM
I only sent in three - everyone is so kind thanks so much - Electrablue gave me a most beautiful tree - love the gold embossing and the little bird - too cute!

and dragonflygal987 has pm'd me - thanks so much

adriayna - with all you have going on to worry about my cards - that is just too nice <G> Thanks!

03-10-2008, 08:25 AM
Great! Ok. I'm so sorry about that Deborah! I swear, it seems like these days I have a set of cards go missing on every other swap I run (either returns or when they were sent). Its frustrating, but I guess its the nature of mail art.

03-10-2008, 09:45 PM
no worries - it's so sweet of you to offer - it is the nature of these swaps - I'm usually lucky but every once in a while something will go MIA :)

03-10-2008, 10:15 PM
Ok! Are we missing any other sets of cards?
