    Vinegar Valentines / Snarky Valentine Sayings, Due May 1, 2019

    SNARKY....SNARKY....SNARKY

    Swap Due Date: May 1, 2019
    Signup/Withdraw Date: May 1, 2019
    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium:
    Any and all media and techniques are welcome
    Vinegar Valentines/Snarky Sayings or Comments: Due May 1, 2019



    Did your birthday get over-looked? Did Santa NOT bring you what you desired?
    Did your Special Someone NOT get your message? Was your anniversary AWESOMELY AWFUL?
    Was Valentine Day a Disaster?

    Now-a-Days termed "Vinegar Valentines", or "Snarky Valentines", or "Unhappy Valentine Gift Payback",
    you can make ATCs to get your bloody heart pumping with this whimsical take on the lovelorn or the love-torn or the thoroughly disappointed.

    I love Valentine’s Day and all that sentimental mush, but, sometimes, I'm just not in the mood.
    Often the broken hearts, dark art, found poetry, cranky comments, and general jabs, can be much more interesting. Particularly if my own Valentine Day was problematic!

    Not to mention that I was hoping for some SNARK in our recent Valentine Day ATART ATHON, and there was nothing, zero, zip, nada, so I am having a major withdrawal crisis.

    This this Vinegar Valentine Swap!

    Make your Vinegar Valentines with a twist on happy, cheery, and bright. Make fun of your one time boyfriend/girlfriend.
    Get back at the jerk who forgot about you, and bought himself a new, custom made, rifle; with a super, duper, pricey, long range, scope; and a raw wool, lanolin drenched, self lubricating rifle sleeve;, but didn’t have enough funds remaining to buy you a valentine card. Tell your ex how much you “miss” him/her.
    Your ATCs don’t have to be morbid or bitter...but they certainly can be. If in doubt, you can use your "Bah Humbug" moments left over from Christmas.....

    You can stay with the Valentine colors and use red or pink cardstock, and add a heart, or you can use any colors BUT red, pink, white. You can give your cards a VALENTINE spin, but this is not mandatory.

    This is an open style swap. Do mixed media, hand drawn, hand painted or some combination. Go wild. Have fun. Be creative. Use your sass!



    * This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

    * ALL mediums and techniques are welcome.
    Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever style you choose. Your mediums can include, but are not limited to: paper, tissue paper, crayon, acrylic, watercolor, gel pens, colored pencil, rubber stamping, ink, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, etc. Please do not take a magazine image, cut it into a square, glue it onto some colored paper, and call it done. Make the ATC YOUR CREATION! I do ask that you send in your best work --- something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

    *Please sign up by posting to this thread.
    * ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
    * All cards need to be standard ATC size: 2.5” x 3.5”
    * All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve. This is for their protection!
    * All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper). If your ATC is drawn or otherwise created on a single sheet of paper, and "flimsy", please back your ATC with something stiffer, such as a cereal box. Just as important, check for cards that are too thick. Each card must still be capable of fitting into the standard ATC sleeve. If your ATC will not fit into an ATC sleeve, it is too bulky.
    * Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards. And please write clearly on everything!
    .....We can't give you itrades and/or You Rock! points if we don't know who you are.
    * Please confirm there is enough postage on the envelope.
    .....Please check both the envelope you send to me, and the envelope I need to send back to you.
    * If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping, here is a great link.
    http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909

    * If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches, with 55 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards, OR additional postage or two "Forever" stamps if trading 6 cards, OR if your cards are extra heavy.

    * Canadian and other International participants, if you have U.S. funds, or U.S. postage, it is greatly appreciated. Please send $1.00 or 1 "Forever" stamp. However, since many of you do not have access to U.S. stamps, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address and I will provide the envelope.
    * I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. If you send me a small envy, the cards get stacked. When I use the 4 inch by 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area, making a THIN package, and only pay for basic (minimum) postage.

    * Cards are due to me by May 01, 2019. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned, as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

    * A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

    * Thank you for considering this swap! If you have my address from previous swaps, it hasn't changed. If you are new, or have misplaced my address, please send me a PM.

    * Above all ~Have fun!!!

    Lurkers always welcome.
    Yes, do NOT want to scare off your Muse.
    Continue to do what-ever you have been doing to keep her cooperative.
    Hope to see you back later.

    Here are my cards. The bottom right card has a yellow tint created with a highlighter. It didn't show up on the scanner!
