    After the success of my whimsical girls postcard swap I am excited to be holding a similar swap.
    This time I would like us to make whimsical girls with a Springtime theme.

    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 12th February. 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.

    I'm just going to have to lurk for now, I have been struggling in life and don't want to commit to too much at the moment

    Ok, sign me up for 3. How important is the back of the postcard? I used some copic markers, and they bled through. I can cover it with clean paper if I need to. And are we supposed to do up the backside like a postcard, with place for the address and all that jazz? Obviously, I haven't done a lot of these postcard swaps...

    Poonwugget welcome!
    I usually back my postcards and have a 'postcard' stamp I use. You do not have to do that but if they have bled through I would suggest backing them so the backs are clean.
    I think it is nice to make the back look like a real postcard but it is not compulsory.

    Here are my first two cards. When I think spring, I think of flowers. We aren't even halfway through winter and I'm ready to spot a buttercup any day now. I get tired of the gray skies and snow piles.

    We just got at least a foot of snow last night and had a 2 hr delay for school this morning. We have wind chill weather warnings (of possible -45 degrees) until tomorrow evening. Spring is too far away...
