    A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS, Open Media ATC Swap, Due Nov. 25

    Due Date: Nov. 25
    Signup/Withdraw Date: Nov. 19
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3
    Number of Players: Unlimited
    Media: OPEN, - Collage, Mixed Media, HD/HP

    Remember the song from “Sound of Music”? I’ve always loved it, and all the nostalgic images it evokes. This is Open Media, and I have listed the phrases in the lyrics that I would like portrayed on your cards. Just pick three phrases from the list and illustrate them on your cards. You can use “flattish” embellishments, nothing very chunky. Old Christmas cards may have some great images. Also, feel free to include more than one phrase image on a card, if they can go together as a scene (like my “doorbell” and “brown paper packages” below). Please join me in the fun and feel free to share your finished cards here in the thread!
    CHOOSE FROM:
    Raindrops on Roses
    Whiskers on Kittens
    Bright Copper Kettles
    Warm woolen mittens
    Brown paper packages tied up with strings
    Cream colored ponies
    Crisp apple strudel
    Doorbells
    Sleigh bells
    Schnitzel with noodle
    Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
    Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
    Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
    Silver-white Winters that melt into Springs

    GUIDELINES: Please place each 2 1/2” x 3 1/2” card in a protective sleeve and tape together side by side (a little overlapping may be necessary) with easy-release tape like Washi or painters tape. OR use the cut-down 9-pocket binder pages. It needs to be a CARD, not a PAPER, be sure it does not bend easily into a U-shape. Include your username, real name, and the swap name on the back of each card.

    MAILING: U.S. players, please enclose one Forever stamp and an address label clearly written (a piece of paper will do, if you don’t have an adhesive label). International players, please enclose a Global Forever stamp OR a $1 bill, plus your address label clearly written.

    When returns are received, please remember to leave iTrader for your host (me) and rep points for those you received cards from.

    I once hosted a Fabric swap based on the Favorite things swap. I was really into quilting at one time.

    I will lurk with strong intent.
