Swap Due Date - cards to be with me 7th March (extended date due to move)
Signup/withdraw date - 28th Feb 2008
Number of Cards - 2 of each chosen colour
Number of participants unlimited

Here Let’s get coloured in!!!!!

Ok so here’s the plan, let’s have a multi themed swop!! Hopefully it’ll work, if it doesn’t go according to plan exactly well I apologise now in advance!!!
Whilst there are some wonderful swops about at the moment I thought that we could do with setting up a swop that can be as easy or as hard as you want it to be!! I want it to be able to be in any media what-so-ever, just please consider that the effort you put into a creation shows, so just splatting a single sticker onto a card does not qualify as the greatest art, whilst a few hurried squiggles drawn in pen is also not what I’m looking for here. What I am looking for is art that you would be happy at receiving. Art that you find difficult to part with. Art that makes others smile. Art that makes other ohhhh in delight when they open their envelopes.
If you think you can do this then this swop is for you!!!!
The swop will be split into different colours. Making cards predominately of the colour stated. You can choose to do as many sets as you wish. Each set of cards needs to consist of 2 cards. Please state if you wish to receive the same colour cards back!!
So here we go I hope that this works and that you all enjoy the idea. BTW the number of colour participants can be altered to suit demand!!

Please remember that post can take up to 2 weeks to arrive here from overseas so post early!!

With some many participants I now don’t know who you were please can you let me know if you never received your rating. Please note that your ratings were carried over so if you received prior to the great exodus don’t ask for more LOL

02-19-2008, 06:45 PM
I'm so glad you managed to hang onto all the above info Kay, try remembering that lot, GEEESH!!!

02-20-2008, 10:00 AM
word to the wise - I have been keeping all my swop info on word, updating and saving onto computer and backup then just cutting and pasting when I edit!! Sooooooo much easier!!!!

02-20-2008, 10:06 AM
Looks great FF!!

02-20-2008, 08:13 PM
Oh you must be so glad you copied all that info!!! Well done FF!!!

02-21-2008, 03:48 AM
everything is looking good..:D

02-21-2008, 05:03 PM
everything looks good and feels good too!

02-21-2008, 07:13 PM
Good to see this swap continues - looking forward to many more.


02-21-2008, 08:03 PM
I'm not at all concerned about my rating, I'm concerned about you not receiving my cards! Please let me know! Here's what one looks like...

02-21-2008, 08:17 PM
Here I am, waiting for the date those colorful cards will make their way over here!

02-23-2008, 02:08 PM
Glad to see our swap is rescued. Thanks for your diligence.

I'm not at all concerned about my rating, I'm concerned about you not receiving my cards! Please let me know! Here's what one looks like...

Going by my list, your cards haven't made it here yet, I will plough through all the envelopes checking tomorrow. When did you post them??

02-23-2008, 11:53 PM
I mailed them in mid-January. I just recorded January on my record sheet, but I do know that I took pictures of some of them on January 15th. It's my fault for not tracking this thread better :( What do I do now?!

02-25-2008, 11:26 PM
I assume that my cards did not get found. I'm jamming out some more right now. If the stars and ley lines do their juju, I'll have them in the mail tomorrow and they'll be with you by the 7th.

fantasy firebird
02-26-2008, 03:11 PM
mind you it wasn't lucky for the rabbit!!

02-28-2008, 12:07 AM
I mailed and paid extra so it'll get there in time. Hope it works!

03-06-2008, 12:03 AM
They haven't arrived, yet? Mega bummer. There's still a few more days...

03-06-2008, 04:23 PM
FF, my cards have been posted, dispatched Andy to the P.O.

fantasy firebird
03-06-2008, 05:29 PM
thanks Susie!!

03-06-2008, 08:05 PM
wow FF- I bet you have a 1000 cards to sort out right about now.... can't imagine how you manage to keep that amount straight!

Can't wait to see what your sending back over to me int his swap...

03-09-2008, 07:51 PM
Since atcards.com went down so suddenly and I didn't have the address to mail my cards to, I dropped out of this swap. So sorry!

The past two weeks have been busy and I had time to search for what happened to atcards.com swaps only now. I'm glad it wasn't hard to find this forum but sad because I'm late for this swap!

fantasy firebird
03-09-2008, 07:57 PM
Ztern, although I am in the process of sorting out the cards, if you wish to send some to swop I will be more than happy to do so as I have been lucky enough to have a load of extras given to me, plus the ones that I will get for my own cards, so if you still would like the chance to play let me know asap. After all its not your fault that you went mia!! it wasn't so much you as the whole site LOL

BTW It was a job and a half just sorting out the return envies, never mind what it'll be like sorting the cards!! But luckily for me everyone has put an address with their ards on this swop, I have a set from the give them wings swop with no return address, plus they don't seem to have arrived here yet!!

03-10-2008, 03:39 AM
My cards didn't arrive, I assume.

There's no time to send a third set unless I go FedEx or something (can you do that? or is it mail for something like $25?). FF, tell me what to do.

I'm so sorry. I want to fulfill my promise. I feel so helpless.

fantasy firebird
03-10-2008, 03:45 AM
dusty, what I have here I will swop out!! If anything limps in later I will swop those too and send out returns. Luckily with a combination of me making a number of cards plus receiving extras I am able to do this (I am sure that no one will object). The post offices can really put a spoke in the wheel with our swopping, I am havin a similar problem with my inchies!! The 1st set I sent went mia and I sent a second, now my returns have departed!!

fantasy firebird
03-11-2008, 03:21 PM
ok every set of cards received have now gone postal!! as promised if any late ones arrive I will swop from what stash I have!!

03-11-2008, 07:54 PM
Good grief you're so quick, that's an amazing amount of envies, Hooray for Kay!!!!

fantasy firebird
03-12-2008, 04:20 AM
this plus the envies from my other swop came to over 70 and I put some into one envie!! Even I was embarrassed at the post office!!

03-12-2008, 06:52 AM
Woohoo, my returns are here already, and they are brilliant, thanks so much Kay for all your hard work on this one.
Also, huge thanks to the following for the fab cards, Mar and Stormarela for red.
Sashibala and Jennifig for pink and Stormarela and Pippin for yellow, all fab cards.

03-12-2008, 03:50 PM

fantasy firebird
03-12-2008, 05:33 PM
now thats obviously a glitch that needs sorting!! there are so many times that I would leave myself a rep, if only for a witty comment that only I understand LOL

03-12-2008, 05:43 PM
Be the way love your idea of the letter that accompanies your returns, especially the bit about the new site. I hope your on commission lol

I may do something similar for my swap, hope you dont mind?

Hugs :jiggy:

fantasy firebird
03-12-2008, 06:53 PM
be my guest!! LOL, I always send some form of letter, but as I had so many to post out it seemed a good chance to spread the word, however I have one person who didn't put her/his return address and they aren't here on the site!! live in Taunton by the postmark! woody - anyone know the name??

03-13-2008, 08:02 AM
Mine were waiting for me when I got in from work today. Well done Kay for getting everything organised even though there was the slight hiccup in the middle. Great swap. My Thanks and rep points go to:-Sashibela , maxie 23, Jennifig, Kaisaj, MandyS, jKlee, Fantasy Firebird, Shautessak. I hope I can find you all - if not I#ll be back.....;)

03-13-2008, 08:19 AM
Have given all my rep points for this swap - ecept for:- Shautessa K (Kinderposht) and Sarrah Steiner (sashibela) Are they here under different names?

fantasy firebird
03-13-2008, 12:34 PM
not sure who has now rejoined and the new names, there is a thread listing the new names people have chosen for themselves, hopefully the enclosed letter will get the missing ones over here!!

03-15-2008, 02:32 AM
Great cards received today from BusyBear, JackieR and MandyS. Many thanks, ladies, and to our wonderful hostess, Fantasy Firebird. Thank you, Thank you.

Well apart from the one card returned by accident to its original maker, I seem to have mastered this sorting out lark!! I am SO glad that everyone seems pleased with their returns. When I started the sorting process I was rather worried, especially if I got it all totally wrong!! However for once I seem to have just about got it right, thanks folks!!
I am sorry if some of you have cards from the same person, that was definately beyond me LOL

03-20-2008, 10:13 PM
Lovely cards arrived for me! Yellow from Susietex and KaisaJ, Blue from Susanb3258, and dmnh, Green from Jackie and Crazy4homer, and Red from Susietex and Mar.
