    ATC swap: Cocktail Shaker, due June 15th

    RETURNS MAILED OUT 20th JUNE

    Name of swap: Cocktail Shaker
    Due Date: 15th June 2011
    Withdrawal Date: none, but if you think you might have to leave, please let me know as soon as possible to allow someone from the wait list to step in
    Number of cards: 3 for 3 (that's it, no multiple sets please)
    Max no. of participants: 30
    Media: any

    This swap was inspired by a conversation during the Awkward Love swap, and makes a bit of a departure from my first two swaps, both themed around colours.

    All cards for this swap must be inspired by the name of a cocktail. They should not necessarily feature a picture of a cocktail on them, though it may be appropriate in some cases, but instead should illustrate the name of the cocktail. For instance, you might do a New York City Skyline for "Manhattan" or choose another readily illustratable (not sure that's a word, but you know what I mean!) cocktail such as screwdriver, zombie, or even sex on the beach (but be sure to put any adult themed cards in the adult gallery rather than posting in the thread).

    All three cards should illustrate DIFFERENT cocktails - no repeats, please, within a single maker's cards (though I'm sure we'll have repeats overall) and the name of the cocktail should be included on the back of the card. You may also, if you like, include the recipe, but that's not required. (Non-alcoholic cocktails are also ok, though frankly, not so much fun.) hic.

    Cards may be any media, and may include embellishments, even ones that are a bit bulky, though you may wish to consider how well they will travel to the UK and back as many players may be from elsewhere!

    Here are the details:

    Please be sure your forum username is on the back of every card and also on your return envelope. Enclose your ATCs in clear sleeves wherever possible.

    UK participants, please enclose a SSAE with the same postage required to mail to me. This will probably usually be a large letter stamp unless your cards are very bulky.

    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 then use to participate in US based swaps). Or, you can send $1 or $2 (return postage being somewhere between the two for me) in concealed dollar bills - again, I can use these to play in US based swaps or swap for UK cash when I have enough... Or, you can make a small donation to my paypal account - if you want to do this, let me know and I will send you my email address for paypal.

    Other nationalities, pleased enclose a self addressed envelope or sticky label; I would appreciate a small paypal donation; if this is a problem for you, pm me and we can work something out.

    If you are mailing internationally outside the EU and your cards are bulky, you may need to add a customs tag - be sure to check. If you do need one, put something like "craft materials" and NCV (no commercial value) on the customs form, so I don't have to pay a charge to receive it! And remember, mailing times to the UK can vary from 3 days to 2 weeks, so be sure to allow plenty of time.

    It is not necessary to include an extra card, though they are always welcome, either on this theme or not.

    Please PM me for my address once your ATCs are ready to post (mail).

    So, who's in this round?

    I'm in, please! This is a clever one and will definitely require a bit of thinking on my part. Of course, I will be at the neighborhood bar doing plenty of research!

    This sounds like a barrel of fun, but I'll lurk for now!

    I'm happy to report that I have chosen my three cocktails to illustrate. I'll be tasting them all tomorrow too! It's inspiration!

    If you don't like the way they taste, will you try some more until you find the perfect ones?
