APC Swap, Flowers with a Little Something Extra, 5’s ,Due June 17, 2021

This will be a 4:4 swap - that is, you will send in a full set of four (♥, ♦, ♣, ♠) 5’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?

I didn't have quite enough dinosaur brads to make a full set but I had just bought my grandson some dinosaur stickers so I used those to make up the difference. (What he doesn't know won't hurt him? ;))

Suzi - I'd like to get back into this APC deck. My 5s are ready to go. Am I too late for the 6s? I made them first thinking that's what this month was but I might be past the deadline for those.

As long as your 6’s are here in time..... the due date is the 17th of this month. I’ll sign you up for 5’s and 6’s

My 5s and 6s went out from the post office this morning. If the 6s don't arrive on time, just send them back. Thank you!

Sorry to be a bother, but have you gotten my 2's and 4's yet? It's been a couple of weeks, so I thought I'd ask. I know everyone's cards are taking a long time. :wubclub:

Ok, I'm mailing these today, 5/11. I'd been wanting to use these Andy Warhol stamps somehow so Andy went to the flower show.

I see you sent PMs when you got my 3's and 7's, but I don't see 2's and 4's. You may have sent me a message and I just forgot or I've deleted them when I emptied my mailbox. Thanks! All's well that ends well! :)

I have a few cards from players already, and I will add all of them to the player list as soon as the swap becomes active! But don’t forget to sign into the swap thread anyhow!
