    Bleu + White China ATC Swap~Due May 15th

    Name of swap: Blue +White China swap *** Swap
    Due Date: 15th May 2011
    Sign-up/Withdrawal Date: 1th May 2011
    Number of cards: 3 for 3 (that's it, no multiple sets please)
    Max no. of participants: 25

    The returns for this swap were mailed out on 16th May 2011.


    Blue + White China ATC Swap



    I have a huge collection of blue and white china almost all inherited from my Mother in Law. I love them all even the damaged one. So this swap is dedicated to blue and white china and you'll have to incorporate it somehow in your cards. All techniques are welcome and mixed techniques are a special favourite of mine, so painting, collaging,fabric,stamping, stitching or whatever else you can think of, or in fact a combination of them.

    Here are the housekeeping rules:

    Make sure your username is on the back of every card and also on your return envelope. Enclose your ATCs in clear sleeves.

    UK participants, please enclose a SSAE with the same postage as is required to mail to me. I would really like to insist on the addressed envelope!!

    US participants, please enclose a self addressed envelope and LOOSE US postage to the same amount as it takes to mail to me (which I can use to participate in US based swaps). No extra cards are necessary at all although of course it goes without saying that I appreciate them deeply. Please remember to add a customs form if your envelope is bulky. Our Customs here in the U.K. want to know what's inside!! Put down something like: Craft Samples, tick the Gift box and declare the goods to be of No Commercial Value (or NCV for short)

    And remember it can take up to 10 days for mail to reach Scotland from the US. Give yourself and your cards plenty of time!!!

    Other nationalities, pleased enclose a self addressed envelope and I will cover your postage. Same message as above really.

    The Self Addressed Envelope wherever you are mailing from, is not optional. I really need it!! Please! These are very large swaps and having to decifer addresses and writing envelopes adds just too much time to the mailing out. Easier for me to just stick them in your envelope! Thanks so much! And don't forget these envelopes have to travel quite a distance in most cases. Make them sturdy!!

    Please PM me for my address once your ATCs are ready for the mail!

    I know life sometimes gets in the way and you simply have to withdraw. I don't mind at all, but please let me know as soon as possible should this happen.Any questions, let me know!

    Red = cards received
