    August Bizarre Holidays, All Media Welcome! Due August 20

    Swap Due Date – August 20
    Signup/withdraw date – any, please communicate with me!
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of participants - 12


    August is hot and humid with the end of summer rapidly closing in. While we are enjoying the last part of summer, don’t forget to celebrate the obscure holidays which not everyone knows about. This swap is all about discovering these special days. Thanks to SunTrade, Rosa and DmyTLadybug for the below examples of August Bizarre Holidays!


    Here is how we play:
    ALL CARDS to be made ONLY from this site: http://www.gone-ta-pott.com/AugustCa...l#.U8HfTZRdXp4 . Choose up to 3 of the listed holidays to create your ATCs (standard 2.5” x 3.5”). They can be the same holiday, 3 different ones or can celebrate one of the special designations for the month of August. All mediums are welcome.

    Due date:
    Cards are to be in my hands by August 20th. Each month’s cards will be due on the 20th of that month. This is an ongoing, monthly swap – you can plan ahead and play each month or just the months that interest you!

    Postage:
    American players - please include a stamp equivalent to your postage, usually a Forever stamp will cover it.
    International players - a stamp (from your country) equal to the one you used to send your cards to me, OR US postage OR carefully concealed dollars. (Currently, it costs $1.15 for a 1 oz. envelope to be mailed from the US to an international location. I keep plenty of 5 cent and 10 cent stamps on hand if you want to just send the dollar.) Let me know if you need help with return postage - I love to have international players!

    1. ALL players please include a LARGE address label (this means at least 2" x 2"); sticky on the back is a bonus!
    2. I will provide the envelopes; there is no need for you to pay the postage to mail an envelope to me! Plus, sometimes I like to sneak in a little art on the outgoing envelope!
    3. Do your best work – send in cards that you would be proud to trade face-to-face!
    4. Clearly write your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME on the back of all your cards so you can receive fun rep points from the artist who receives your card.
    5. Please mail early to allow time to reach me. US players - this is a domestic mailing!
    6. An extra card for the swap host (in line with the swap theme) is always appreciated but is never required.
    7. Embellishments are fine. The completed card needs to fit into standard pockets and the embellishments need to be securely fastened so they don't fall off during shipping. If it is too bulky it is more than likely that the card may not reach me - either because the envelope has been torn and the card lost, or it is too heavy.
    8. Have fun!! These swaps are addictive; soon you’ll want a full year’s worth of these bizarre holidays!
    9. I will give iTrader feedback as soon as 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 “You Rock” Rep points for the artists whose cards you receive. Each player’s name on the swap listing will link to a post of theirs in order to assist you in leaving “You Rock” rep points. Neutral i-trader will be given for no cards or no communication.

    Mary I went to your blog page, and I joined or followed you. I enjoyed looking at your cards. I only left one comment, but you did a great job. Those Nude on dictionary paper are coveted. (except the frontal hahaha)

    THANKS! Most of those are older but I want to start adding new stuff to the blog. I appreciate the follow!!!

    Maybe I'll have to use the nudes on a Bizarre Holiday card! Not sure which holiday but surely they will work for one of the holidays! If I use the frontal one, I'll put some clothes on her!

    You know mary if you want to stamp a few extra of those nudes on to dictionary paper, I would jump for joy. Clothes are a very good idea, I didnt think of that.
