    Snarky New Years Resolutions ROLOS - Open Media - Due December 1, 2018

    Swap Due Date – December 1, 2018
    Signup cutoff date – November 15, 2018
    Number of Cards - 3:3 (or 6:6 if we have enough players)
    Number of participants – unlimited
    Size – 2.25" x 4" (the smaller rolo size) I can punch the holes for you if you don't have a rolo punch
    horizontal cards (2.25 as the height and 4 as the width) please with the holes at the bottom so they can be stored in a regular rolodex if desired
    Media – Open (**normally I would do media groups, but with this one lettering/words may need to be added to HD cards, so in the interest of simplicity I'm leaving it all open. HOWEVER if you would prefer one media over another please feel free to PM me!)

    NO LOOSE GLITTER! Sparkly pens like gelly roll pens or sakura pens are ok, but I don't want glitter all over the place. I do take cards out of the sleeve to scan and make sure they're glued appropriately (not falling apart) so pleeeaaase don't make me clean up glitter...

    Swapping will be done mostly effort by effort (where possible)

    ROLOs!- Snarky New Year's Resolutions

    link: some snarky resolution examples courtesy of Google Image Search


    Foxglove Snarky New Year Rolo 1.jpg
    example by Foxglove

    *Please use thick sturdy paper like watercolor paper or bristol drawing paper (not bristol board lol) or even the cardboard from food boxes like cereal or crackers.
    *Please do NOT use any raised embellishments, I don't like being responsible for mailing things like that. FLAT media only!
    *Stickers can be used... tastefully. If it looks like you just slapped some stickers on your rolo without any effort I'll be sending them back.
    *Decorate the back please, even if you just paint some pretty swirls, put some decorated paper, etc.
    let's not leave the backs plain. If you want to leave an open space for someone to put address info (you know, to use it as a rolodex rolo lol) that's fine.
    *Sleeves - several options here, they'll stick out of the end of regular ATC sleeves so you could use two sleeves or postcard sleeves. up to you, just protect them somehow to get them to me (in case my mail lady forgets to close my mailbox all the way... rainy season's coming up here)
    *One more important rule, and I must insist on this one... HAVE FUN! I may have some picky rules, but I want y'all to have fun making these!!


    any questions? please feel free to ask


    DON'T LEAVE YOUR BACKGROUNDS PLAIN WHITE make it colored or add details.

    Picky Details
    *Please measure and cut carefully. I will not accept anything that's more than and eighth of an inch off the correct size.
    *Your AFA username (at least) should clearly be on the back of each one. It would be nice to add your location (country or state) and date as well, but it's up to you. (putting the host name is not necessary, sometimes it confuses the person receiving and I'm the one who gets the rep point instead of the card's creator. lol)
    *Original artwork only please (don't photocopy or scan/print your work and send in the printed out artwork.)
    *late cards and/or a lack of a withdraw will result in a neutral. Please ensure you mail on time. Do not PM me and ask me to wait on your cards. This is completely unfair to the rest of the group and will be denied.

    Postage Requirements:

    US - clearly write or type your address in black or blue (not a pastel blue...lol) on a mailing label or piece of paper, your address should be at least 1" x 2" - please do not send envelopes! I prefer using my own envelopes.
    (no return address labels, they're too small)
    Please include one .50 (forever) stamp (.71 or 2 forever stamps for collage please - I will return unneeded postage unless told otherwise)
    I can also accept Paypal if you prefer that route. PM for Paypal details.

    International - clearly write or type your address on a mailing label or piece of paper - I will provide envelopes
    please include $1 USD or US Stamp equivalent, Paypal or your own country's postage equivalent for that weight
    (I love international postage and can sometimes use them for international swaps but please don't send me cancelled stamps... those can't be used for international swaps lol)

    Please PM me for my address when you are ready to mail. If you post your request for my addy in the thread, I will not see it right away.
    I'm still in Dix, IL if you have my addy from a previous swap, but please let me know that you've mailed! (please do not mail to Plainfield, IN, I am no longer there!)

    When you receive your returns for the swap, please remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) so I know you're returns have arrived and you rock (rep points) for each card you receive.

    Thanks!

    please feel free to post pictures of your cards when you are finished!

    Ok, I've stalked the thread long enough... Please sign me up, Kynara.
    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.

    Here's the first rolo, though I will probably make a border of some sort before I mail it.

    Here's the third rolo! I just need to make one more so the host can choose one as a hostie.

    Where is everyone? There's gotta be more snark out there!
