Swap Due Date - April 17, 2021
Signup date - April 3, 2021
Number of Cards - 4:4
Number of participants - Unlimited
Media - open, must be attached to a 2 x 3 playing card and the top left number/suit must be showing
(no bulky embellishments please!)

This will be a 4:4 swap - that is, you will send in a full set of four (♥, ♦, ♣, ♠) 7’s**


For this swap, we will be making Altered Playing Cards with the theme of Flowers, and a Little Something Else. Meaning the main theme of the card should be Flowers, and then you will add something else along with the flowers. Your “something else” can be absolutely anything that you want! Birds, butterflies, insects, people, animals, you get the idea. Anything goes!

Please note:
- Real playing cards must be used.
- APCs must be the standard size of 2.5" x 3.5". Note this is POKER size, not bridge size! (Wrongly sized cards will be returned).
- Cards must have one of each suit (incorrect cards will be returned. It makes swapping very difficult.)
- The top left suit and number must be visible/uncovered.
- Flat embellishments only please.
- Please include username and your location on the back of your cards.
- Originals only - no copies or prints. (Cards can be duplicates as long as they're still individually created and we have more than 5 people in the swap!

US players: send me a mailing label and a forever stamp.

International players: send me a mailing label and $1

Who would like to play?

Thanks! They're from old field guides I found at the library book sales. Kind of hard to tear them up, but I figure more people get to enjoy them this way. :)

I finished mine and will get them ready to mail.

Those are all great! The two Lincolns seem to jump out at me. I think I like the stamp best, but the $5 is intriguing, too! :)

NancyL

I finished mine. but they curled. So now they are resting under two heavy books.

If they don't uncurl, I will make another set. but I have to get another set of cards first.

Those cats are really gorgeous, Lorna!

My cards went in the mail today covered with dogs - if you look carefully you will see either 7 dog heads or 7 tiny dogs on each card

You would think a dog is a dog is a dog, but each card is so unique. For instance the dog on the 7 of spades, is saying to his food bowl, "I love you and I will be back soon"

The Bassett Hound wants to go for a walk, Her name is Sadie. I used to have a Bassett named Sadie, this is how I know. :eek:

Suzi

Waiting for one last set, and I’ll be ready to swap the cards out. Shouldn’t be too much longer.

Suzi
04-22-2021, 07:51 AM
Just a quick update, the last set of cards still has not arrived, but I am hopeful that they will show up within the next day or so. I plan to start the swap process tomorrow, so maybe I will be lucky enough that the mailman will deliver today! The mail has been really unpredictable lately.

CastleQueen5
04-22-2021, 11:30 AM
I am so worried because my 6s were in there too.

Suzi
04-22-2021, 11:59 AM
I am so worried because my 6s were in there too.

I think they will show up eventually. My USPS digest doesn’t show them in today’s mail, but you never know..... they could be in there. Fingers crossed!

CastleQueen5
04-23-2021, 04:31 PM
Suzi, I got mail from you postmarked April 20th. So go figure.

Suzi
04-26-2021, 01:18 PM
CastleQueen5, I know! The mail is not too reliable these days! I am sure your cards will show up soon..... I’m trying to work a deal out with a few players so we can make sure that you won’t miss out on the 7’s

CastleQueen5
04-27-2021, 10:40 AM
I thought it was taped well too. Doesnt it figure like Murphy's law that my cards did NOT arrive when I failed to take photos. I know one set had bees. maybe both.

I wonder if I addressed it wrong.

Suzi
04-27-2021, 11:51 AM
I have heard stories recently about mail sitting in Philadelphia for no reason. I am still hopeful that they will arrive! I have 3 people who agreed to wait for your cards. Just need to find one more person who would not mind waiting a little extra time.

CastleQueen5
04-27-2021, 11:52 PM
Thanks I see my 5 and 4s have arrived. How odd.

Suzi
04-29-2021, 08:30 AM
Thank you, AngelJoy and design49, I appreciate your offers to wait, but I did find 4 people and I am holding their returns for a little bit, in the hopes that CastleQueen5’s cards get here soon! I have all card swapped and ready to go, so I just need to slip the cards from the missing set in when they arrive.

***All of the other returns were put in the mail system very early this morning, so hopefully they will be showing up in your mailboxes soon!

Still no sign of CastleQueen5’s cards! Still holding out hope though! If they aren’t here by the 17th, I’ll have to go ahead and mail. I do appreciate you ladies who have agreed to wait!
