View Full Version : Mostly Blue Swap, Due Mar 28th

02-18-2008, 10:50 PM
Swap Due Date - 3/28/08
Signup/withdraw date - 3/14/08
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants - Unlimited


Returns were in the mail and on their way back to you on Saturday, March 29th!
Thank you for participating in this swap!

This swap is all about the color BLUE! You may use any medium and depict any subject matter. The only rule is that you use mostly BLUE. You can use various shades and tints of blue, but as much as possible, avoid other colors so that the finished card is “mostly blue”. (A white background is fine). Send in 3 card, get 3 in return.

Due Date:
Cards are due in my hands by March 28th. This will be an on time swap. I will mail your return cards on the due date! NOTE: Late-arriving cards will be held for 1 week past the due date, swapped with other late cards, and then sent back out. (If there are not enough late arrivals, late folks may get some or all of their own cards back!)

USA participants, please enclose 58-cents postage on your return envelope. If your envelope contains only 41-cents postage, I will be limited to sending you back very simple cards with no embellishments. Our new postal rates require 58-cents if the envelope is slightly thicker, slightly heavier, or requires hand cancelling (and if it’s both thicker AND heavier, it costs 75-cents). So affix your return postage accordingly.

International participants, I will pay return postage.

I will update THIS post (the first post in this thread) to inform you of the status of our swap. So check back HERE for updates. (You won’t have to read through pages and pages of posts or scroll to the end to get current information!)

Swap Rules:

1. Send your BEST cards – cards that demonstrate your best workmanship, and that you are proud to share with others.

2. Clearly write your USERNAME and SWAP NAME in these 3 places:
* On the back of all your cards
* On the front of your mailing envelope
* On the front of your return envelope

3. Enclose a return label or self-addressed envelope. Inside the USA, include 58-cents postage. Outside the USA, I’ll pay return postage.

4. If you’re mailing from outside the USA, please mark “AIRMAIL” and mail early to allow extra time for delivery to the USA (I recommend allowing 3 extra weeks for delivery from outside the USA).

5. An extra ATC for the swap host (in line with the swap theme) is greatly appreciated, but not required.

6. 3-D embellishments are fine, as long as the completed cards slide into standard 9-pocket pages, and as long as the embellishments are securely mounted so they don’t fall off during shipping. (Keep in mind that thick cards may require a padded mailing envelope and additional postage).

7. When you sign up for this swap, I will PM you my address and a reminder of the swap details.

8. I will give iTrader feedback the same day I receive your cards, and will also update this post showing that your cards have arrived. In return, I encourage you to give iTrader host feedback for me when you receive your swap returns, and Reputation Points for the artists whose cards you receive. (If you need instructions on how to leave iTrader or Reputation Points, let me know and I’ll send you step-by-step instructions).

9. With most of my swaps, I hand make a custom card for each swap participant, so I can trade one of your cards with one of mine. (I will give you a "Reputation Point" for the card I keep). If you would rather that I NOT trade one of yours for one of mine, please let me know that when you send your cards, and then I will make sure that your 3 cards go to others, and that your 3 returns come from others.

02-26-2008, 02:28 AM
I'm glad you like them! I was hoping they'd be blue enough. :)

02-26-2008, 08:47 AM
My cards are in the mail.

02-26-2008, 11:13 PM
Poppies - they're wonderufl! :D

Galzard - sounds good! I'll mark them as "on their way" and will let you know as soon as they arrive.

02-27-2008, 09:06 PM
Sheepies - Mail can be so funny! I used to think US mail always arrived within a week. But while doing ATC trades, I've found that mail can take a month to go from the next town to here (although that's rare). The due date is 3/28, so there's still plenty of time. Let's give them another week or two.

02-28-2008, 01:59 AM
Could I join this swap please. Thanks

02-28-2008, 02:05 AM
Crisbear - welcome! :D

02-29-2008, 07:02 PM
Dolly 56- welcome! :D

Sheepies - aha! Mystery solved! :D I'll look forward to receiving your envelope (with cards) soon. Thankfully, there's still plenty of time -- so no worries! ;)

03-01-2008, 02:28 PM

Sign me up please.


03-01-2008, 03:34 PM
My cards will be in the mail on Monday! Take a peek in my gallery (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?u=441).

03-01-2008, 04:12 PM
May I join your "Mostly Blue" swap? It will be my first ATC!!



03-02-2008, 12:02 AM
You're all invited to The Blues Art Festival.

03-02-2008, 12:47 AM
Welcome Kat and Pjom!! Glad to have you on board!

Yellow Den and Fuzzynoodle - those look great! I can't wait to see them in person! I'll let you know the moment they arrive. :D

03-02-2008, 05:07 AM
I think these are the ones I will send in... haven't decided for sure yet.

03-02-2008, 06:23 PM
I've got some blues! May I share them with you?

03-02-2008, 06:38 PM

03-03-2008, 05:55 PM
Busybear - sounds good! I'll let you know the moment they arrive. :D

03-03-2008, 06:04 PM
:swoon:I've been working on my blue cards and they were almost finished. I had to clear off the dining room table because my painting club was coming over, and I don't know where I put them. I've been looking for hours and they're stil "no show". I do hope they show up really soon else I'll have to start all over and they just won't be the same. :cry::sad:

03-03-2008, 08:05 PM
Patti - isn't that a frustrating feeling! I "lost" a folder today (work related), and so I can relate. I found the folder. Hopefully you'll find the blue cards.

03-03-2008, 08:53 PM
I dropped my cards in the mail today. Hopefully they'll arrive soon considering I could have delivered them myself in an hour, lol. :)

03-03-2008, 10:19 PM
Poppiesinjuly - I know, sometimes the mail is SO slow (even for local deliveries!) I'll let you know the moment your envelope arrives. :D

03-04-2008, 06:29 AM
My cards will be in the post tomorrow - hope you like them - here's a sneak peek:jiggy:

03-05-2008, 12:57 AM

The missing cards.

Been looking for them for almost two weeks. They weren't anywhere in the house so I had to look outside on the lanai. I remembered that there was a box I hadn't seen during my hunt and concluded they had to be in that box and that the box had to be out on the lanai. And BINGO, there they werel I'm so releived. Now I can finish them and get the swap in the mail soon and on time. Hooray!

My beautiful mostly (actually totally) blue cards arrived today an I love them. Thanks so much to Janis for hosting (I points given) and reputation points to the following artists:
Stephie, Totoly-oz-some, lola123, musicgal and iamlillian. Most of you didn't have posts in this thread so I had to hunt you down to give you your rep points, but I managed to find all of you so tho your points up show for a different thread, they definitely are thank you for your lovely mostly blue cards.

Today I received 3 beautiful blue cards in the mail: mostly blue 03 by jetleg, blue cat by bubblecup, and parents & child by janiselain. Thanks for some truly beautiful blue art and a fun blue swap.

janiselain - hosting skilz: you haz dem!

Bubblecup, When I gave you rep points, I screwed it up and didn't get my whole sentence in there. This is what it is supposed to say: I'm so glad to have your "Blue Cat" from the Mostly Blue Swap!

Sorry about my clumsy fingers hitting the wrong keys.

Tinka, We should all give rep points, but not everyone does and I know it is disappointing...I was in a swap recently and made 6 cards....Only received 2 rep points for them..It's nice to know what others thought of your cards..
So try and focus on the fun of making them and receiving great art back...
Hope this helps :)

You should have had a rep point from me tinka- I left points as soon as I received my returns. The only one I couldn't leave a point for for her card was janiselain, as I'd just given her itrader as host and I was told to 'spread the love' before I can give her a point. Off to see if I can yet........

.... ok, can't yet. Hey Janis,hon- I loved your card, just for the record!!!!!!!!!

04-07-2008, 07:55 PM
I received my first cards in an ATCsforAll swap today, divine "Mostly Blue" interpretations from Pauline T, Paper Fairys and Janiselain. I'm in awe of all three.

04-08-2008, 01:09 AM
.... ok, can't yet. Hey Janis,hon- I loved your card, just for the record!!!!!!!!!

No worries! I know how "fussy" the rep point system can be. ;) Thank you for leaving iTrader, though. :D
