    Houses of Whimsy - Due June 15th

    Houses of Whimsy

    Swap Due Date - June 15, 2011
    Sign Up Date - June 1, 2011
    Withdraw Date - Anytime before due date
    Number of Items - 3/3
    Number of Participants - 20 (second swap)
    Non-US/Canadian Players - All welcome
    Media - Hand drawn or Painted

    Hello All,

    This is my second time hosting so welcome.

    This swap is about houses of strange shapes, impossible proportions, fantastic colours, odd accessories etc. The card should feature an exterior view of some kind of dwelling or dwellings (landscape of a whimsical neighbourhood is acceptable). I am hoping that these cards will be vibrant and fun. Be as playful, outrageous or artistic as you would like.

    Any drawing or painting media acceptable. If you feel like you can't draw remember this isn't about drawing realistically, this is about being creative so don't be shy, give it a try (sorry it rhymed).

    I have attached some picture for inspiration, these are not mine, I have included links where the pics came from. I also highly recommend checking out Cindy Thornton's site (just because I like it). http://cindythornton.wordpress.com/page/10/

    These are just examples don't feel limited by these.

    Here are the sites that the pics are from:

    The Rules:

    Cards that do not meet the swap requirements will be returned to the sender. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

    Mailing:
    I am in Canada so please give your cards enough time to get here.
    Please do not mail your cards ON the due date. Mail them early so they arrive by the due date.

    US players
    - Include Large Address Label (I will provide the envelopes)
    - include loose US postage (whatever you would have to use to mail the item, 66cents-$1, I think). I will use this postage to help pay my way with US hosted swaps.

    International Players
    - Include Large Address Label (I will provide envelopes)
    - if you have US or Canadian Postage please include it if not I will cover it

    General Guidelines:
    - Please submit only cards that you would be happy to receive yourself.
    - Card size must be ATC standard - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
    - Originals only, NO prints
    - PM me for my address
    - Put your username on the back of your ATCs
    - Send cards in sleeves or baggies
    - If you need to withdraw, it's no problem. Just let me know. I will leave neutral I- traders for those who do not communicate prior to the due date.
    - Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from.

    HAVE FUN!!!

    Was watching Horton Hears a Who the other night and this fits in with that inspiration. I will give this a try.
