~ If you want to post your cards to the thread for all to enjoy please do, but it is not required.
~ A Hostess card is not required but always appreciated!
~ Please include your username and group number on the outside envelope I see first. (That way if I don’t have time to open and handle them at least I can let you know they have arrived!)
Please enclose a self-addressed envelope and postage.
As for postage I think since there probably will be 4 cards it is a good idea to put .65 on the envelope.
Please enclose an address label, your address clearly printed on a piece of paper or a long self-addressed envelope. I’ll pay the return postage. (A dollar bill or US stamp is appreciated, but if you don’t have either please
don’t let that stop you from joining in on the fun)
– Generic themes where is it easy to think up a card; for example fairies, cats, dogs, flowers, etc. or less generic themes which require a little more thought or research but are not difficult to find a reference or collage images. Examples of regular themes include: flying pigs with hats, red poppies, whimsical houses, nature fairies, zetti, etc.
–Themes that usually require research and reference. Examples are characters from books or movies or perhaps obscure themes such as “Dogs in Victorian England.” They can also be themes that are difficult to interpret like music or a difficult poem. These can require a lot of thought and effort. If you have internet references please include the best one of them so I can post it for your fellow group members
Here are the groups subject to change, depending on the interest.
If there is enough interest in something different we can discuss a change or if one of the current groups fills up quickly and there is nothing in something else I can change it. PM me or post to the thread for a discussion if you have a different idea and we can discuss it! I am flexible. I want to have a fun filled PAT for all. And I don't like empty groups!
