    POSTAGE STAMP APCs and/or BIRD APCs 8s. Due March 10, 2020

    Swap Due Date - March 10, 2020
    Signup date - March 3, 2020
    Number of Cards - 4:4 (One group) or 8:8 (Both groups)
    Number of participants - Unlimited
    Media - open, must be attached to a 2 x 3 playing card and the top left number/suit must be showing
    (no bulky embellishments please!)


    Postage Stamp APCs and/or Bird APCs - 8s - Due March 10, 2020
    **This is an opportunity to complete your deck. **



    This will be a 4:4 swap - that is, you will send in a full set of four (♥, ♦, ♣, ♠) Postage Stamp theme and/or Bird theme and get a full set in return.

    Postage Stamps - Theme is open as long as there is at least one real postage stamp somewhere on the card.

    Birds - Theme is birds, at least one bird must be present somewhere predominantly on the card.

    You may join one or both groups, sending a full set of appropriately-themed for each group you join.

    Please note:
    - Real playing cards must be used.
    - APCs must be the standard size of 2.5" x 3.5". Note this is POKER size, not bridge size! (Wrongly sized cards will be returned).
    - Cards must have one of each suit (incorrect cards will be returned. It makes swapping very difficult.)
    - The top left suit and number must be visible/uncovered.
    - Flat embellishments only please.
    - Please include username and origin (state and/or country) on a small piece of paper attached the back of all APCs.
    - Originals only - no copies or prints. (Cards can be duplicates as long as they're still individually created and we have more than 5 people in your group.

    US players: send me a mailing label and a forever stamp, if you're doing both groups you need to send another forever stamp.

    International players: send me a mailing label and $1 USD for one group (or $2 for both groups)

    which group would you like? or both

    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

    Here are my postage stamps for this swap - on the mail today.
    The blue design at the front is an actual stamp with its display backing. Whilst in Indonesia it cost me R20,000 to mail anything and I had just bought a new collection of stamps before my husband was transferred. These R5,000 stamps celebrate 'Traditional textile of Indonesia' - just like the Scottish tartans, Indonesian patterns reflect the area that you come from. Where we lived, in eastern Borneo (Kalimantan Timur) the pattern was a squid and you could actually count the 10 legs on the stylised pattern.
    The background of each card is an enlarged version of another set of stamps which were actual textile patterns (see thumbnail)
