    Cheerful Summer Postcards open media due September 15

    Swap Due Date -15th September
    Signup/withdraw date - none but please keep me informed.
    Number of Cards - 2 for 2
    Number of participants - Unlimited


    Summer is the time of year many of us go away on holiday and send postcards home to our friends and family. With this in mind I though it would be nice to make some cheerful Summer postcards to swap.

    I would like us to make x2 postcards sized 4 x 6 inches. The theme is cheerful Summer. You can interpret that however you wish but I would like them to be cheerful and Summery.

    I am thinking of holidays, beaches, Summer sun, beach huts, ice creams, seashells, seascapes, or even camping/caravans, bbqs. Think of which Summer activities you enjoy and make you happy. Or think of what might bring a smile to the recipient - cute animals sleeping in the sun, beach babes topping up their tans, eating fish and chips at the seaside! so many possibilities.......

    On the reverse of your card I would like you to include your username details and a short message for the recipient. You could maybe let them know where you are and how you are enjoying your summer. You can write as much or as little as you feel comfortable with.

    Here are the postcards I have made for this swap-






    Post Card Rules-
    1. Open media but with no bulky embellishments.
    2. Cards must be 4x6 inches with straight edges, please make sure that they are neither flimsy, or extra thick. Please check and carefully measure your cards before sending.
    3. Please include your username and real name on the back of your postcards along with any other info you wish to add. A short message for the recipient would also be appreciated (see swap description above).
    5. Host cards will be treasured should you wish to include one but are not required to participate.
    6. Where possible I will exchange effort for effort and like for like media to the best of my ability and dependant on cards received.

    Postage info
    1. The due date is 1st September. Please be mindful that I am in the UK so allow plenty of time for posting to me. Any late cards will be returned to senders.
    2. Please pm me when you are ready for my address to send your cards.
    3. Please package your cards carefully to ensure they reach me undamaged, and send in individual plastic sleeves or similar protective covering.
    I will need a large return address label or piece of paper with your address on it, but I will supply my own envelopes.
    4. UK players please send either a first or second class stamp for return postage.
    International players please send either $2 USA or contact me to pay via paypal.

    I will no longer be sending back returns at my own expense for players who forget to pay, or do not send enough for their returns. If you have multiple returns for more than one of my swaps and want them sending together please discuss with me in advance so I can advise you on the correct price. Thank you for understanding

    I'll be lurking. It's been forever (and a lot of life) since I did any mail art at all. However, this is tempting me out of my woodwork. I'll see if I can come up with something before committing. ��
    I think I'm caught up on iTrader. If I have missed anyone, please don't hesitate to let me know!

    You can look in the MMH or PIF threads related to postcards to see who is participating in them then send out a PM to them about this swap. Not everyone sees all of the swaps (I tend to get lost in the how to and sicussion forums myself and forget to look at open swaps).

    Welcome Miss M!
    Thanks ParadoxSketchbook for the tip.
    At least now there are enough players to get cards swapped out and get 2 different artists in the returns :-)
