    July PAT - Open Theme - due Sept 10, 2022

    Swap Due Date – Saturday, Sept. 10th, 2022
    Sign-up Deadline – Sunday, July 31st, 2022
    Withdrawal Deadline – None; no withdrawals allowed
    Number of Cards – 1 card per person per group (total of 4 cards per group)
    Number of Participants – 6 groups of 5 players per group
    Theme – Chosen by players

    PAT Guidelines/Rules:
    1. In order to participate in this PAT, you must:
    -Have an established iTrader rating of +15.
    -Have received no negatives within the past 6 months.
    -Have received no neutrals within the past 3 months.
    2. Themes must be chosen within 48 hours of joining the swap.
    3. Chosen themes must fall into the stated group category of either “Regular” or “Open.”
    “Regular” themes include generic themes that are easy to reference and/or find images for collage (ex. cats, castles, roses, butterflies, etc.).
    “Open” themes may be regular or challenging, and includes those that need research and/or are specific (ex. Irish castles, Alice in Wonderland, Medieval beasts, etc.)
    4. You may only join up to 2 groups.
    5. Each card must be the standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches, including APCs.
    6. Each card must be original and unique.
    7. You must follow the themes requested by your group participants EXACTLY. Theme is the main focus of a PAT, so no deviations from theme requests are allowed. If a player requests a green cat and a blue one is submitted, it will be returned.
    8. Embellishments must be relatively flat and lightweight; no bulky embellishments.
    9. Cards must have a sturdy background and earn the name “card.”
    10. Each card must be in an individual plastic sleeve.
    11. Each card should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, your location, group number, and recipient name.

    Mailing Guidelines:

    1. Please mail cards in a business sized envelope, spreading the cards over the space of the envelope.
    2. If you tape your cards onto a sturdy background when mailing, please use an easy-release tape such as painter’s tape or washi tape. I don’t want anyone’s beautiful artwork to be damaged by tape.
    3. Please include a large label with your name and address clearly typed or written on it. I will provide envelopes.
    4. If you are mailing from the U.S., one Forever stamp should cover the cost of returns if you are in just one group. Include a stamp for an additional ounce if you are in two groups.
    5. If you are mailing internationally, please provide either 1 Global U.S. Forever stamp per group or 1 well concealed $1 per group.

    Please Note:
    I am an on-time hostess! I will not wait for your cards! Do not over-commit yourself. Late cards--regardless of the reason (health, personal tragedy, job demands, etc.)--will result in a neutral iTrader from me, and possibly a neutral or negative iTrader from each of the participants in your group. The only exception to this rule will be if you both show proof of finished cards (shared in the thread or messaged to me privately) AND notify me that they have been mailed (at the same time) at least 4 weeks in advance for international mail, and 10 days in advance for U.S. mail. I apologize if this seems harsh, but I view iTrader simply as a statement of fact, not as any sort of punishment or judgment of the artist.

    *When you are ready to mail your cards, please private message me for my address.
    *iTraders will be given when cards are received by me and appropriate theme material is verified.
    *Please note that cards must be received by the due date.
    *A host card would be greatly appreciated and loved, but is never required.
    *Please make sure to leave an iTrader for your host (me) and for each participant in your group.

    To Join This Swap:
    You must verify that you have read the above by joining with the statement:
    “I have read and understand the swap guidelines and rules.”

    Who would like to play?

    My theme is…

    Goat(s) with Horns

    Any type of goat is welcome - male or female, domestic, wild, imaginary, even anthropomorphic - as long as it has at least one horn

    Preference is for a single goat.
    But if the muse leads you to a whole herd of goats, a nanny and kid, or some other grouping, by all means follow

    Any style is welcome - realistic, surrealistic, mythical, stylized, cartoonish, even abstract if it is somewhat representational

    Most any type of theme is welcome - dark and creepy to lighthearted and fun, and anything in between. Cute is fine because goats are cute, but cutesy, not so much.

    And lastly, don’t feel constrained by anybody else’s definition of what is art. Do you. If doing you means a single color line drawing on a white background, please, do that!

    Oh my, your black and rust mini dachshund with wings cards might make me a little teary eyed. We lost Maggie, our mini doxie last summer. She was 15 and we had her since she was about 5 months. Do you (or did you) have one?

    I am going camping Saturday morning thru Sunday evening. I will have access to WIFI and be able to keep the list current. The only thing I won't fill in is the specific suites on the APC groups. I'll only have my phone and I don't know how without an actual keyboard. If the camp has overstated their WIFI availability I will update as soon as we get on the turnpike to head home. No worries, my husband will drive.

    Awww...I'm sorry to hear about your lil Doxie Melissa. Yes we have Gabby. We had her since she was 6 months and she turned 6 on the 30th. We love her so much. Sweet, smart, funny and stubborn at times. LOL
    They are great dogs!

    I've had mini doxies since I was 11 (meaning just a couple of decades now ). Emma's my 7th at the moment. We also have Watson, who's a 17 year old rescue. Other than being mostly deaf, you'd never know he's as old as he is! The vet said we'll try to get another couple of years out of him. Emma's 7, born one week after Princess Charlotte so she acts like she, too, is a royal princess. Of course, my husband encourages that! She has epilepsy that's controlled by meds. She's a long-haired red & black with a gorgeous mohawk. Watson looks like your little Maggie, Melissa. All my long gone doxies of course have wings, so there are lots in my heart for me to picture and draw from.

    Speaking of - I'm a little unsure, TerriF - what do you mean by 'black and rust'? Is it a black & tan like Maggie and Watson, or do you mean like my Emma, who's mother was black & tan and her father was a red (sort of a rust) so she's a mix of those? Does it matter if it's a long-haired or smooth coat?

    I'm loving all of the Doxie Chatter. Actually our Miss Gabby is a Black and Tan (yes) Dapple with a mix of silver.
    She is a smooth coat. I would prefer a smooth coat. Thanks so much. Gabby and Caitlin. .jpg

    This is my Beautiful Daughter and Gabby

    I hope Gabby lives a long life as well.
