    Funny Feathers & Friends: a Remembering Just Ducky Swap; Due Date: December 5, 2022

    Swap Due Date ~ December 5, 2022
    No sign up/withdrawal deadline, but please communicate!
    Number of Cards ~ 3 for 3
    Number of Participants ~ Unlimited
    Open Media


    Welcome to the
    Funny Feathers and Friends: a Remembering Just Ducky Swap!
    Returns Mailed: December 8, 2022



    This swap is to celebrate whimsical animals, especially animals matched with funny sayings or thoughts.

    It is inspired by the memory of Just Ducky (Nancy Natalie), an active participant of AFA from before 2008 to her death four years ago in October of 2018. (In Memoriam) Just Ducky was a wonderful whimsical artist as well as an active trader and dear friend to so many of us here at AFA. Her iconic Ducky drawings cheered and delighted us for all the years she was with us and her warm, nurturing spirit encouraged us to create and connect with each other.

    Having known Just Ducky is not a requirement to play in this swap. She would have welcomed EVERYONE to play along and create endearing humorous animal characters ~ and that is what I want too! I will include some examples of Just Ducky’s work as inspiration but you are encouraged to create your own critters in your own special way! And, if possible or if you want to, add funny, cute or sweet sayings to go along with your artwork.

    Just Ducky/Nancy also hosted two swaps during her time at AFA and here are the links to them both in the ATC Swap Archive in case you want to be reminded of or be introduced to her personality and sense of humor ~ If it Walks Like a Duck and Duck Pond Buddies.

    Swap Requirements ~
    * All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
    * This swap is 3 for 3 only. An extra card for the host is welcome, but completely optional.
    * Cards must be original. Send work into which you put time, imagination and care.
    * Please use only small, light embellishments.
    * Please protect your cards with plastic sleeves.

    Mailing Information ~
    * Include username, real name, your state/country and the swap name on the back of all cards - and put username and swap name on all envelopes sent.
    * US Participants – Please include a clearly written SASE.
    * International Participants - Please send a clearly-addressed envelope or mailing label and I will cover postage.

    Please PM me for my address when you are ready to mail your cards. Please post in this thread when you are sending your cards out, that way I can keep track of the cards when they were mailed. Any late cards will be returned.

    When you receive your returns, please leave I-Trader for your swap host and rep points for the artists of the cards you receive. People like to know where their little artworks find home.

    Who would like to create funny fabulous animal friends, with or without feathers?

    Here are some examples from my collection of whimsical cards that, to me, express some of the sweetness and humor inspired by Just Ducky - but without the feathers! Thanks to jaw, BlueSkyHare and Jewels!

    Sign me up. I won't be able to create for this for some time, but I don't want to forget the swap. And I'll never forget Just Ducky.

    Lurking for now - whimsical is something I'm not good at, but let me see what I can come up with .... for Just Ducky!
