    Whimsical girls postcard swap handdrawn/handpainted due November 10th

    Swap Due Date -10th November
    Signup/withdraw date - none but please keep me informed.
    Number of Cards - 2 for 2, 3 for 3 or 4 for 4.
    Number of participants - Unlimited

    I love collecting whimsical girls ATCs. I thought it would be nice to host a swap on a larger scale swapping whimsical girls on postcards.
    I would like us to make postcards sized 4 x 6 inches. You can submit 2, 3 or 4 postcards and I will swap out for the same number in your returns.

    You can make your girls in any style you choose, and they can be any theme.
    Here are x2 examples of recent girls I have made for the pif postcard threads. x1 is Frida, x1 is a girl with a fox. Both of these cards would be suitable for this swap. Include any props you wish, only rule is that each card must have the main subject as a whimsical girl.





    I will add my own postcards for the swap below when I make them.

    My own postcards for this swap-









    Post Card Rules-
    1. Hand drawn or /hand painted only. You can use glitter/sparkle pens, but make sure there is no loose glitter. No collage or embellishments allowed for this swap.
    2. Cards must be fully coloured, no white backgrounds.
    3. 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.
    4. Please include your username and real name on the back of your postcards along with any other info you wish to add.
    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 to the best of my ability and dependant on cards received.

    Postage info
    1. The due date is 10th November. 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. I intend to swap out promptly after due date.
    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 for 1-2 postcards, or $3 for 3-4 postcards 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.

    Me, too... Seems like there are so many awesome swaps lately, and so little (at least for me) time I've got several of yours on my radar.

    Darn it, BexMadeMe! You might make me want to start collecting ANOTHER size of mail art!!!! I'm lurking for now. I'm a bit intimidated by the postcard size. Although, most of my doodles of whimsy girls during professional development/staff meetings would be probably about the right size... hmmm... Let's see if I can catch up and get these made on time

    Kre welcome! Those are perfect, I love your style. Thank you for making a host card :-)

    prex79 I'm glad you are tempted! I am hoping to get more players signed up after seeing the eye candy ;-) I do not find it harder working bigger, if anything it's easier as there is more room lol I suppose it's what we get used to. You should definitely have a try, and you might be surprised to find it's really not so bad.
