    Winter Swap: Up close and personal (HandDrawn/HPainted): Due January 14, 2022

    Swap due date: January 14, 2022

    Number of cards: 3 for 3
    Number of participants: 30 maximum
    Winter Swap: Up close and personal (HD/HP): Due January 14, 2022

    Winter is coming: shorter days, snow, dormancy and so much more.
    This is a swap about winter and what you see when you look closely at things. What do you love about the winter? What images come to mind? Snow on a branch? Cardinals on a fence? Have you visited somewhere in the winter that you loved? Make three different cards although the theme and medium can be the same.

    Medium: Hand drawn or painted, sewing, needlepoint, hand-made stamp, etc. Handmade art cards only. No collages, digital, photography. Check with me if in doubt about your medium. Make something that would be hard for you to give up.

    Use your artistic skills and feel free to use your imagination and unique style. All cards must be original ie no prints or copies.
    Most of all---Have fun!!!

    Requirements:
    *All cards should be standard 3.5” X 2.5” and at least one layer of card stock.
    *Cards should be flat.
    *Send cards in plastic sleeves.
    *Withdraw early if you can’t do the swap, late cards may be returned if they can’t be swapped out.

    Mailing and postage:

    *PM me for my address when you are ready to send cards.
    * Make sure your user name, location and swap name appear on the back of your ATC’s.
    *Include your username on your SASE.
    * International participants: I will pay postage for first 10 players. Please include a SASE.
    *US participants: Include a stamped self-addressed envelope.

    Returns: When you receive your returns, please leave itrader for me and rep points for players.
    An extra card for the host is always appreciated but not required.
    Anyone want to play?

    I'd like in on this one, but I think I'd best lurk for a bit first. I remember another up close and personal you did a couple of years or so ago that I quite enjoyed!
