Withdrawals: Anytime up to two weeks before due date as this allows a person on the mailing list to join the swap and still have their cards to me in time for swapping out. Please communicate with me, I don’t bite, and I love to chat! In fact I would encourage you to chat in the thread. In fact I encourage it! Form new friends along the way!
Number of cards:
3 for 3 only
Any medium/technique – if you can use two or more on the cards all the better, but they are not necessary to enter this swap.
Number of players:
Instructions: Please read all the instructions carefully as there are aspects that are expected on each card.
Music Mouse Swap / Any Medium / Technique – Due Monday 1st October
For all you fans of Adventure Mouse and House Mouse – Here’s another swap just for you!
So it can be funny or nice!
This swap is about Musical Mice: The card must include a music sheet background and part of it must show, a mouse of course and an instrument of some sort to qualify. (If you are drawing or painting, feel free to paint right onto the music sheet.)
Of course they can be as humorous or as serious as you want to make them.
Please remember mice to me are CUTE – so please no horror/Halloween type cards they will be returned.
Embellishments must be kept to a minimum and are allowed so long as they are flat, be aware the mail machine doesn’t like those thick metal embellishments so please don’t use them, as your cards may turn up here damaged and I would hate to have to return them to you.
International players: Please realize that I am in Australia so international means the USA and every where else in the world except Australia. I will pay for all postage in exchange for a $1.05 us stamp or $1us. It costs me $2.35 to send returns so that’s a fair enough deal.
Preparing the cards.
~ Cards need to be ATC size (2.5" X 3.5")
~ On the back be sure to include the following information:
#Your Artist AFA User ID/Real Name (so you can receive the coveted You Rock! remarks)
#Where you are from (in general - no personal addresses please!)
#Date (your ATC was made)
# Your Signature
~ All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
~ Each card must be different BUT you can use the same theme if you need to, but I don’t see this as being a problem when there are so many nice, funny or cute mice out there.
~ Please send work of a quality that you would be pleased to receive.
~ Please PM me for my address when you are ready to send.
~ I will provide all envelopes and postage for international players for your return cards.
~ Postage info:
Normal mail from the US takes about 10-12 days.
All International/US players: please include a $1.05 stamp and enclose your address on a LARGE sticky address Label.
New Zealand players: Please include a New Zealand Stamp to the value of your out going mail.
Australian players: Please enclose a SAE with a 60c Stamp.
~Please write your user name, Address and the swap name on the back of the mailing envelope.
~Extra cards for the hostess in this theme are not necessary but of course are gratefully welcome and will be definitely enjoyed and appreciated by myself and me wee mess faerie girls in the Thursday night club as always!
~If you have any questions, please PM me or ask it in the thread for this swap. I will encourage you all to “chat” and discover the talents and techniques of the other players. This is of course how friendships are made!
~ Swapping out – I have help ~ the Thursday night girls and myself will try to match effort for effort to make you all enjoy your returns, with a selection of mediums so your returns are all different. Please be aware that this is not always possible due to the cards received but I promise to try the best I can.
Reps and iTrader
~Once you receive your return cards, please remember to leave iTrader for me and Rep points for the participants whose cards you received. I will leave iTrader for each of you as soon as I receive your cards or as soon as possible afterwards.
I think I have about covered everything…only one thing more……
