    Postage stamp ATCs - TRANSPORT Due: Apr 20

    Due date: April 20
    postage date for non-Australians: Mar 30
    I live in Australia - mail will NOT reach me quickly! I normally allow 3 weeks when mailing my swaps to anywhere in the world - I suggest you do the same.
    cards: 3:3 or 6:6
    participants: unlimited
    media: any and all but MUST include at least 1 postage stamp with a form of TRANSPORT on it (road, rail, sea, air)

    I have LOTS of postage stamps and love using them on my cards so I have decided to run a monthly series of swaps using different topics on the stamps. This is the 4th in the series.
    Short of stamps? just ask - I have lots on most topics and I am very happy to send them to you. If you need some a little quicker just PM CastleQueen5 - she is in the US and has lots of postage stamps to share as well.

    May - People June - Places/scenery July - Flags August - Marine (fish, other sealife and plants) Sept - Land animals (not cats, dogs or butterflies) Oct - Flowers, trees Nov - Household items/food (chairs, lamps, coffee pots, clocks, jugs, etc) Dec - Christmas

    Please include a background for your stamp(s) - it can be an extension of the stamp design, or abstract, or something in between. Plain white backgrounds will be returned unswapped.

    Post to the thread to sign up.

    PM me for my address when you are ready to mail - if you have an address in Robina, I am still there.

    Due date:
    Cards are to be in my hands by April 20. I will mail your returns as soon as possible but remember, it took up to 3 weeks to reach me so your returns may take up to 3 weeks to reach you. Please be on time so others don't have to wait.

    Postage:
    Australian players: please include a stamp equivalent to your postage.
    International players: unfortunately Australian international postage has gone up to $3.20 so I must ask for a well hidden US$w or a Global Forever stamp.

    ALL players please include a LARGE address label (AT LEAST 2" x2"), I will supply envelopes. Please do NOT send those 3-in-a-row sleeves - they do not fit in my envelopes.

    1. Do your best work.

    2. Clearly write your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME on the back of all your cards (so you can get fun rep points) and on the back of your mailing envelope. I am running a few swaps and do not want to put you with the wrong returns.

    3. Please mail early to allow time to reach Australia.

    4. An extra card for the swap host is greatly appreciated but is not required.

    5. Embellishments are fine. The completed card needs to fit into a standard pocket and the embellishments need to be securely fastened so they don't fall off during shipping. If it is too bulky it is more than likely that the card will not reach me - either because the envelope has been torn and the card lost, or it is too heavy.

    6. Have fun!

    7. I will give iTrader feedback when I receive your cards and will also update this post showing that your cards have been received. In return I encourage you to give iTrader host feedback to me when you receive your swap returns, and Rep points to the artists whose cards you receive. After all, knowing where your cards went is half the fun I think.

    Laffqueen - no-o-o-o-o-o!! How can we all ask for them if we can't see them? sigh ​Would you like me to scan them and show them when they arrive?

    AWESOME cards everyone.

    jo.on.the.go
    I particularly love your Minnesota Riverboat.
    Fort Snelling, per your ATC, does a lot of reenactments on site, and I got to ride in one of those recreated riverboats.
    Entirely different than any boat I have ever been in.
    It struck me as very difficult to steer, but I obviously didn't know how to work things.
    The re-enactors did fine.
    I have a lot respect for those guys.
    And I LOVE your card.
