Our Anniversay Edition - 25 Rounds of PAT Cards! Check below for a special category this round.

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: May 16th, 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!

Rules for the Silver Contest

In honor of the 25th round of the PAT cards, an anonymous donor has come forward with a substantial prize for this round of PAT cards. (No, I am not the donor, but I am sworn to secrecy so no torture will get me to spill the beans on who it is)

The contest will be as follows - This is the legalese...very important stuff.

1. Participants of the Special Category will be competing for a substantial prize (trust me on this one - you want it - you REALLY want it!)

2. Participants in the PAT swap will be voting on the winner of this contest.

2.. We will be using a special gallery KEYWORD - SilverPAT25 for this event. You will post your silver card in your gallery and use the keyword so all entries will come up in a specific gallery search for viewing.

3. Cards must be posted in the gallery and MUST BE IN MY HANDS BY THE SWAP DEADLINE to win the prize. No late entries will be awarded the prize, it will go to the card in hand with the most votes.

4. Voting will be as follows - You will PM me your top three selections and I will keep a list of votes. You will also post comments in the gallery which will help in deciding a winner if there is a tie. Voting will end on the due date and a winner will be announced after all voting has ended.

I urge everyone to really challenge themselves on this and do some spectacular work - you won't be sorry, and we'll have fabulous cards for swapping. I also strongly urge you to post your pictures and cast your votes - let's make this a really fun contest with lots of creativity.

Jabauer 02-01-2013 08:31 AM

Count me in....
Group 2 Boy Scout Eagle Scout
Group 4 Nurse Humor
Group 5 Vintage Boy Scout
Group 8 Inchie on a Twinchie on an atc
and the Silver group.
That should keep me busy for a while.

normat 02-01-2013 09:02 AM

Group 9 please - "Mums and daughters"
Group 10 - Anniversary silver group.

Not that I have a clue what to do on that one. - Do they all have to be different or can we create four of the same design?

Jmaraul 02-01-2013 09:13 AM

I've got you both added :)

For the Anniversary Cards, they can all be the same.

You can use silver embossing powder, silver paper, silver embellishments - anything silver. It doesn't have to be Anniversary in theme, just in color.

parknslide 02-01-2013 09:27 AM

I'm not sure what round robin means?

Jmaraul 02-01-2013 09:31 AM

It means I swap within all member of the group - you could get a card from any of the people signed up for this category.

normat 02-01-2013 09:32 AM

No neither do I??

I gotcha. We aren't specifically making it for one person - just making a card to fit the theme of Silver.

Jmaraul 02-01-2013 09:38 AM

Correct!

QueenOfInkland 02-01-2013 09:57 AM

Thank you.

Jump right in - the water's fine! We're glad you decided to take the plunge. I'll add you now to your groups. Have fun!

SybilMcC 02-01-2013 10:51 AM

I made a spreadsheet to have all my swaps listed in one place. Now when I add a swap, I type in a J and it automatically puts in Joyce's name and address. What does that tell you? My computer thinks it is soooooo smart.

normat 02-01-2013 10:56 AM

Aren't you the clever one. I have my addresses in my swap book, that I can never find when I need it. It's always hiding under my junk.

SybilMcC 02-01-2013 11:00 AM

I have a swap book too, and it does the same thing yours does. But I need both, so that if I can't find my book it is in my computer, and if my computer isn't working right it is in my book. Which I sometimes can't find. But it always turns up. It has every swap I have done since 2008 when I joined SCS. I treasure it.
