    Smile FINISH IT UP!/ATCs/Open Media/Due Date: March 1st

    Due Date: March 1st

    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium: All/Any

    FINISH IT UP 7!!

    This swap is a little different than most & it is totally random in the selection of ATCs that you will be receiving back. You will be making three ATCs.

    The first ATC that you make will be using a randomly selected image from my stash. You can use it any way you like just as long as most of the image is recognizable. For this particular swap I will not be taking requests. You could get anything from an elephant to a refrigerator to a flower. Like I said above, you are welcome to do about anything you'd like to your image. You can color them, rip them, collage them, etc. This will be your first ATC.

    The second ATC that you make will have either a sentiment, quote, poetry or possibly even just one word for you to use on your second ATC. This, too, will be totally random from my stash of stuff. I will provide this for you. Like your first ATC you can do anything you like with your word(s) be that collaging, coloring, ripping, etc. This will be your second ATC.

    The third ATC will be a light-weight embellishment to use on your ATC. It could be a few used postage stamps, word cut outs, small brads, tag, etc. Once again, you can use these anyway that you'd like to. This will also be randomly picked for you from my stash. This will be your third ATC.

    To receive these items you will need to send me an envelope that has your name & addy on it & is stamped so that I can send you your items back to you. I will be sending you these three items in the mail & you'll be able to work on them after you have received them. RETURNS WILL BE RANDOMLY SELECTED so if you don't like the element of surprise then this is probably not a good swap for you. When you are all done with your items/ATCs then you will send them back to me the regular way & enclose a self addressed & stamped envelope for me to send your returns back in.

    YOU CAN ADD LOTS OF LAYERS & EMBELLISHMENTS IF YOU'D LIKE BUT BE SURE TO SEND AN EXTRA 15 CENT FOR EACH ATC that you send in for the swap to cover for your ATCs going to the other artists. I am going to be really firm about this because the postal machines love to "eat" thick/bulky mail.

    ATCs need to arrive on or before March 1st. Late cards will be returned to the artist unswapped and neutral I-Trader given. Lack of communication and lack of ATCs will result in Neutral I-Trader given. Please, please communicate. US SWAPPERS, please send a SASE. Postage will be whatever it cost you to send it to me. International participants will need to send either US $2 or I have set up a Pay Pal account also. ALL INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPANTS NEED TO SEND A SELF ADDRESSED ENVELOPE OR LABEL TO GET THEIR RETURNS IN. Please label all your envelopes with your user name & swap name. Place each ATC in a plastic sleeve. An extra ATC on the subject would be greatly appreciated but is not mandatory. Please feel free to post your ATCs to the thread. If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot me a PM or ask in the thread. Please PM when you are ready for my address. Most international mail will take anywhere from one to two weeks to arrive in WA. Please plan accordingly. On that same note; most mail here in the US can take anywhere from two days up to 10 days so please don't wait until the last minute to send your ATCS.

    Players, when you have received your return ATCs for the swap; please remember to leave I-Trader for the host (me, ferretgirl) & You Rock points for your fellow artists that you received cards from. I will have all players linked to their first post so that leaving You Rock points will be a breeze. I will leave I-Trader points for you as soon as I receive (on time) your swaps. Once again, please PM me with any questions you may have.

    So don't forget: Bulky or heavily embellished swaps need to include an extra 15 cents for each ATC that is heavy or bulky. You will also be receiving RANDOMLY PICKED ATCs; if you don't like the element of surprise then this will not be a fun swap for you. This is meant to be a fun, challenging kind of swap & I hope that we will see some really phenomenal artwork. Let's do this!!

    CastleQueen, I did not know that. Well, they owe us something after raising the rates as much as they did on our regular postage! Are they going to raise international postage, too? Or have you heard?

    International and Postcards stay the same price. SO we loose money of we paid 21 cents and they are only worth 15 cents. I have been using mine up. and will buy more at the Lower price later.

    But package prices are rising too.

    Yeah, that stinks. I think Greg bought a bunch of them, too, but am not sure. Will have to go look. Do you know when the new rates kick in? I can't believe that package rates are going up, too!!?? They already cost so much as it is. I am sure they do that so that people will use the Post Office's Priority boxes. It is almost not worth sending stuff anymore. Plus, I went to buy some things from a rubber stamp store & I had $40 worth of merchandise & the shipping was close to $43!! Can you believe that? So you know what I did? I split the order up three ways & sent it in like that instead. Saved myself quite a bit of money on postage doing that even though I had to use my credit card three different times. What a rip.

    Hey Ferretgirl, I sent off my cards for one of your other swaps and put my envie to send my Finish it up stuff in that envelope. Just FYI!
    Let me tell you, I am really mad at the post office right now too! I sent packages off to my son in Florida and 14 days later, they are not there! The tracking says that it will be later than expected and that was on the 24th of Dec! I have spent THREE HOURS on hold only to be told they will send an investigation to my regional post office...what good is that gonna do???? I am not a happy camper! My grandkids never got their gifts- they think Nana stinks right now!! sorry...venting- oh, and the cost was $36 dollars!!!!

    Okay, thanks for letting me know, TAD.

    Wow, you have a right to be P O'ed with the P O!! It sounds like they may have lost your package? Oh, that is so sad that the grandkids think you stink. How old are they? Maybe it would just be better if you went to FL yourself? Ha Ha Ha Who is to say, though.....
