    Postage stamp ATCs - LAND ANIMALS Due: October 20

    Due date: October 20
    Postage date for non-Australians: September 29
    I live in Australia - mail will NOT reach me quickly! Mail is getting back to closer to normal but, with reduced international flights, I would still suggest you allow at least a month, if not 5 weeks.
    cards: 3:3 or 6:6
    participants: unlimited
    media: any and all but MUST include at least 1 postage stamp with some LAND ANIMAL on it (NOT cats, dogs or butterflies - they have had their own swaps already)

    I have LOTS 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.
    short of stamps? Just ask - I have lots of topics and I am very happy to send them to you. If you need some a little quicker just PM CastleQueen5 or AngelJoy - they are in the US and have lots of postage stamps to share as well.

    future topics so you can plan ahead:
    Nov - Flowers/trees Dec - Christmas Jan '21 - Birds (land or sea eg penguins) Feb - Music (musicians, dancers,singers, etc) Mar- Art (artists, pictures of Art - Classical, native, retro, etc) Apr - Sport (playing sport, sports equipment, Olympics, etc) May - Celebrations/emotions June - Space (astronauts, planets, spaceships - real or fictional eg Star Trek, etc) July - Household items/ food (chairs, lamps, coffee pots, clocks, jugs, etc)

    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 hand by October 20. I will mail your returns as soon as possible but remember, it took up to a month to reach me so your returns may take a month or more 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$2 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 - I plan to swap effort-for-effort as much as I can.

    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.

    Please sign me up! I got a jump on this swap due to the time it takes to get things to you from the States. The cards went out the week of August 9th. The cards for your Marine Postage Stamp swap went on on July 27th, and I see they have not yet made it to you. Hopefully there's still time! I am enjoying playing with postage stamps!

    welcome to all the new and returning players

    Cleopatra - love that you used dinosaurs for one of your cards. Don't worry about your Marine cards yet - I put our mail on hold while we were on holidays and have not received any mail since my return. Australia Post has gone to delivering mail only every 2nd or 3rd day as there are so many parcels now.

    Signing in!
    Glad I checked the forums! I don't do that often, and I'd forgotten to be looking for this.
    Mine were mailed on July 22.

    Received my PEOPLE cards today! Since the thread had been archived I thought I would mention it here.
    Thanks for persevering, Donna! And thanks to Seascape131 (watercolor/John Lennon), Vicki Z (Santa and Chenile) and nanvan (James Dean)! Great cards. Worth the wait!

    CastleQueen5 - sorry to see you go. Would you like me to take you out of the first post with offering spare stamps?

    AngelJoy - welcome to the swap and I will tell you when your cards arrive (you were so quick off the mark that you made your cards before I could welcome you )
    artbymee - welcome to the swap.

    Seascape131 - tigers were included in the Cat swap but if that is your only option I would accept it.

    Suzi - gorgeous cards, I will tell you when they arrive

    Don't forget - PLEASE tell me when you see a card that strikes your fancy, knowing that you like something makes it much easier for me when I swap at the end

    plumhill2001 - I am so glad that your people finally reached you. I thought that your cards had been on a long journey but I have just received Betsyg's cards for my Black and white swap - mailed 7 Oct 2019. Nothing on the envelope except the mailing date stamp, no sign of where they have been hiding in the meantime

  27. Thanks Seascape131, AngelJoy thanked this post
