***Postal*** PAT 24 Swap due 1-31-13***
 
***New & Open*** PAT 24 Swap due 1-18-13***

Two dozen Rounds of PATs - can you believe it?

Pick-a-Theme is grouped, each group consists of five members. When you sign up for a spot in a group, you pick your theme. You will then make a card for each of the four other members of your group in their chosen themes and in return, they will each make a card for you in your chosen theme.

1. All cards MUST be 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches. Thatís a hard and fast rule of ATCís.

2. There must be at least two layers of heavy card stock or watercolor paper.

3. No vender requirements. No technique requirements. Use at least one embellishment. And, of course, do your best work. PAT swappers tend to make some of the best cards out there.

4. Each card must be unique. You can not make the same card for two different people even if the themes are similar.

5. Regarding handwriting on cards: Unless you are a calligrapher or skilled at drawing fonts, if you donít have a stamp that meets your need for text, a computer generated phrase or a word or phrase cut from a magazine or DP is generally preferable to handwriting on an ATC.

6 . Please sign your cards! People like to know who to compliment and thank! At a minimum, please include the Group # and Theme, and your SCS Name on the back of the card. Any other information you would like to include is also welcome.

7. You will be placed in groups on a first come first serve basis and I will do my best to accomodate your requests for groups.

8. HAVE FUN AND CREATE BEAUTIFUL LITTLE MASTERPIECES!!

Due: January 31th, 2013.

Please Note: Each swap position has an individually selected theme, so in this type of swap there are NO ANGELS and NO SUBSTITUTIONS so please keep that in mind when you sign up. FLAKERS will be reported to moderators and will not be welcome in further swaps. Newcomers are EXTREMELY welcome however I ask that they only sign up for a maximum of 2 spots for their first time around. Be fair to your fellow swappers, mail on time and if real life happens, please let me know ASAP.

***In the event of a flaker situation, the hostess will swap out cards intended for the missing player. You might receive a card that wasn't your chosen topic, but you will receive your full allotment of cards for each spot you take.***

Mailing: Please send your cards in a baggie and include a self-addressed stamped envelope for cards to be returned to you. The amount of postage on your SASE should be at least the same amount that it takes to mail your cards to me and you need to use US postage stamps. NO meter strips or Click N Ship labels, and NO foreign postage please.

Include additional postage in case the cards coming back to you are heavier than the ones you send to me. Extra postage will be returned if not used. Canadian and non-USA participants may include US currency in lieu of postage.

PM me for the mailing address when you are ready to send. Have fun!

Joyce, I will take a spot in Group #5, Vintage.
A Question, (of course). Do we choose a vintage something or is it just vintage anything?
I may sign up for more later but I wanted to grab that one right away.

LabradorDork 09-27-2012 06:00 AM

Woot woot! I am too excited for this, thanks for the invite, Joyce :D For now, I'd definitely like a spot in 5, 7, and 8. I know I'll pick more, but I'll start with these and start looking for some themes! Thanks :)

Which way would you prefer?

Normally we have picked a vintage theme, but it might be interesting to see what vintage subject you might want to use. So you tell me which you want.

I'll add you to those categories now and if they fill up fast, we can open them again in another group. I'm glad you are excited - Yay!

SybilMcC 09-27-2012 06:09 AM

I like vintage anything. I'm loving old family photos maybe. What about that for my theme? Is that what you have in mind, us picking a particular vintage something?

That sounds like a great theme. I'll add that right now.

I love old photos too. So you will be getting vintage photos back on your cards - I'm looking forward to that one already.

normat 09-27-2012 06:55 AM

I would like spots in 3 - 6 - 9. I haven't my themes yet. Want to think on it first.

Take your time and pick some good ones. I'll add you to those groups right now with TBDs. Welcome!

QueenOfInkland 09-27-2012 07:41 AM

Hi Joyce ::waves:: May I please have one spot in category 8? The technique is 'triple stamping'.

Oooohhh! That sounds interesting! I will have to investigate further...

I'm adding you right now :) Welcome back.

SybilMcC 09-27-2012 07:50 AM

Joyce, after thinking it through, go ahead and put me in two more groups with TBD. It doesn't matter where you put me. Not the technique ones, just regular.
Thanks.

lakelivin 09-27-2012 07:56 AM

I'd like a spot in Group 5 for Vintage Underwear, Group 1 for Moulin Rouge, Group 2 for Zombies, and Group 3 for Sons of Anarchy ;)

Jmaraul 09-27-2012 07:57 AM

Now I'm heading out to tackle that hair problem and make a stop at the Post Office. I'll update any new requests when I get back.

QueenOfInkland 09-27-2012 08:14 AM

Joyce:

What hair problem??? LOL I missed something somewhere...........

Thanks for adding me, "O' Fast as Lighting One", and I have a question.

This theme is a little different flavor since I am the one specifying a technique. So, does that mean that each of us in this group will make the same card for all of the swappers in our group? I hope my question makes sense.

prairiejen 09-27-2012 09:17 AM

5 groups please.... any will do where every you can squeeze moi in

prairiejen 09-27-2012 09:22 AM

Okay got them
1.) Your favorite super hero
2.) Eric Carle (children's books)
3.) Soccer ( preferably pro teams )
4.) Cult classic movies ( e.g. Attack of the 50 Ft. woman)
5.) Vintage Nursery Ryhme

prairiejen 09-27-2012 09:24 AM

What are angels again? I get the substitution part.

normat 09-27-2012 10:35 AM

Okay so here are my themes, Joyce.

1. Sunbaked
2. Things with strings
3. Blowing in the wind.

CandyHaz 09-27-2012 12:42 PM

I'll take 3 spots for now ... 1 in vintage, and two anywhere else ... I'll work on topics

(giggling here) Not really a "hair problem" earlier, but maybe I have one now. I needed to do something with my hair...cut, perm, color, transplant...just something, right? I have been putting it off for quite a bit, just didn't want to take the time to go "beautify". So I went to the salon, and got a new cut and color. I'm all excited, the beautician was really pleased with how it turned out...I'm feeling pretty good, right?

I get home and DS (from here on out to be known as Mr. Eloquent) says - with a puzzled look on his face..."Your hair looks odd."

Odd. :confused: (me, not him)

I will never have grandchildren if he is this smooth with women. Sigh.

Now, I grant you it is a different color, and a different style than he's ever seen me wear - but odd??? Yikes. I'm happy with it, and my sister will tell me the truth - so I'm holding out for a more adult opinion. I normally wear it curly and fluffy (dark brown & grey in color). This is a flirty sleek cut and the color is a great dark chestnut. Its a new look - maybe he will like it better next week. (fingers crossed)

As for the cards...I think you should make a different one for each player. This will give you the opportunity to play with the technique and try different colors or layouts. They don't need to be completely different - you could do the same layout & do 4 different colors, or use the same colors and try 4 different layouts. Changing the embellishments would count as different too.

Angels are the delightful people who swoop in at the last minute to fill in when someone drops out. They cover the card obligation and save the day!

They are my heroes :)

Jmaraul 09-27-2012 01:23 PM

I think I have the first post caught up and current now. I did a little juggling, so double check to see that I got everything where you want it gals. If I didn't please let me know.

Now I'm gonna check the mail - I know there are swap packages that need to be processed! Woohoo!

BonnieBeth 09-27-2012 02:54 PM

Hi Joyce...may I please have 4 spots for the following themes:

Good morning, Joyce. I'd like a couple of spots, too! I think there are openings in Groups 7, 9 and 10. If 6 is not full when you update, but I think it is, I'll close out that one. I'll be back with topics.
