    VINTAGE/ANTIQUE TELEPHONES Due November 19, 2019

    Swap Due Date: November 19 , 2019
    Signup/Withdraw: none, just communicate, please.
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: unlimited
    Media: Any Media, please limit the use of stickers!

    VINTAGE/Antique Telephones

    Remember the days before cell phones! There were so many different styles of telephones. We had a phone on the kitchen wall that had a cord that was so long, you could walk around most of the house while talking on the phone! Remember rotary phones? Telephone booths? Google “old telephones”, there are some really neat images of all different kinds of phones. We still have an old wall phone hanging in the garage, and it still has the old phone number label on the phone! Our phone number started with 2 letters and a number, and telephone numbers were only 7 numbers (or 2 letters and 5 numbers) long.

    This swap is pretty simple. Your cards should feature an old telephone. Vintage and antique phones would be fantastic, but there are also some pretty neat looking phones that were a little more modern too. I remember we had pink “princess” phones in our bedrooms when we were kids.

    This is an open media swap. I am thinking that collage cards would be really fun for this swap. Lots of layers and fun images. There are so many possibilities. Of course, HD/HP is more than welcome too! Whatever you decide, make sure that you have colored backgrounds.... no plain white backgrounds! Have fun with this theme! Be creative do your best work, and send in cards that you would be proud to add to your collection. I will do my best to swap media for media. Host cards are not required to play, but if you choose to send one, I will cherish it.

    Cards are to be standard ATC size, 3 1/2" X 2 1/2" and the cards should be straight and sturdy and in an individual plastic sleeve. Please include swap name, user name, your real name, date and location on the back of all cards.

    US participants, please send a large address label and a forever stamp. I will provide the envelopes!

    International participants, Please enclose a large address label and a well concealed US Dollar bill. I will supply the envelopes. Any questions?? PM me.

    When your cards are ready to mail, send me a PM for my address. If you have my address from previous swaps, it has not changed. Please try to mail your cards early!! I like to be prompt in sending back your returns.

    When you do receive your returns, please be kind enough to leave "you rock" points for the artist whose cards you received, and if you feel that I have done a good job as a host, please leave an iTrader for me.

    Ooh! Just saw this and have added it to my subscriptions. There is a lot of potential with this, but I must lurk before committing.
