    handdrawn/handpainted -Pick your favourite animals swap due May 05,18

    Swap Due Date -5th May 2018
    Signup/withdraw date - none, but keep me informed.
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of participants - 20


    What is your favourite animal?
    To participate in this swap you must choose x3 of your favourite animals.
    The animals you choose go onto a nominated animals list- see below.
    You must then make x3 cards of x3 animals from this list.
    You can make your cards all of the same animal or different, as long as it is an animal on the list.

    I will TRY and take into consideration favourites when trading out, however this depends on cards received (your chosen animals may not have been made into ATCs).
    I will also trade effort for effort where possible.

    The sooner you sign up, the higher the chances your animals will be made into cards, the better your chances of getting one (or more) in returns. An animal can only go onto the list once so if someone has already picked it please choose a new animal.

    Hope this makes sense? Any questions?

    To start the list I will add my own x3 animals.

    Don't forget to nominate your x3 animals on sign up


    Specific Card Rules-
    1. All cards must be hand drawn/ hand painted, embellishments/collage are not allowed.
    2. Cards must be correctly sized with straight edges 2.5 x 3.5 inches, make sure that they are neither flimsy, or extra thick. Please check and measure your cards before sending, (it is harder to rectify these problems after I have received your cards). Cards must be cards not thin paper please!
    3. Cards must be fully coloured. Don't just leave the background plain white.
    4. Please include your username, real name and the swap name on the back of your cards along with any other info you wish to add. Please also include the animal name to make easier for me when swapping out.
    5. Host cards are not required but will be treasured should you wish to include one.
    6. Where possible I will exchange effort for effort and like for like cards to the best of my ability and dependant on cards received.

    I will add my own cards to this post upon completion.

    Posting
    1. The due date is 5th May 2018. 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 ATC sleeves. I will need a large return address label or piece of paper with your address on it, I will supply my own envelopes.
    4.International players please send either $2 USA or contact me to pay via paypal. UK players please send either a first or second class stamp for return postage.
    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 and want them sending together please discuss
    with me in advance so I can advise you on the correct price. Thank you for understanding

    Hmmm I was going to lurk on this, but I think I can safely sign up for this one. I love drawing animals! I’d like to add Octopus, Seahorse, and Jellyfish to the list. The animals we choose for the cards we make are supposed to be ones that we did NOT choose, right?

    Please be aware that I occasionally have vitreous hemorrhages in my sighted eye. It can take a week to a month (or longer) before it clears up & I'm able to see again. This means that, should you trade with me in any way, you may wind up waiting for your art until my vision clears. If that happens, I'll let you know as soon as possible.

    Sorry Denise thought I'd replied to this. You can make cards of any animals from the list including your own, however it may be easier for me if you didn't in case I end up accidentally returning your own cards back to you!! I must remember to double check on returns!
