***Postal***PAT 23 - Due 9-17-12
 
I'm giving Jen a break so she can enjoy her vacation - she earned it after the last 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: September 17, 2012

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!

I'm adding you now to group 1, and will add you again when you make up your mind about the others.

I've actually been in my crafty room making stuff with paper - can you believe it? :shock:

I've missed playing with paper. I like it better because there are no splinters.

Glad I could get the wheels turning for you!:D

normat 06-23-2012 01:41 PM

Hmmmm - should I get my feet wet? What say you?

Jmaraul 06-23-2012 02:16 PM

I say...Why ain't you in the pool yet? LOL

We've missed having you around - git in here :)

mrslaporte 06-23-2012 02:24 PM

The water is fine :) don't even need fins...

parknslide 06-23-2012 03:00 PM

Jump in, Girlfriend! Nothing better than a dip in the pool on a hot day!

Jmaraul 06-23-2012 03:24 PM

Hey Paulette - Do you have a zebra striped bikini to go with that purple hat of yours? You might have to slip it on to go find Sybil and Jen......and Loretta...and Deb.....

Who else is missing? LOL I'll bet they're all trying to find new bathing suits.

superjen 06-23-2012 09:09 PM

I figured out my subject on the drive today: Beach Bum. Any group is fine. Norma would love to have you play with us again.

Arlene_C 06-23-2012 10:04 PM

Can I join group 1 - "On a Picnic" and group 2 - "charm me" (any theme, but must have a charm) and another group - "amber waves of grain" (could mean actual crops or patriotic).

Jabauer 06-24-2012 06:02 AM

Nothing like a good pool party!!! I've got the sunsreen and pina coladas.

Jmaraul 06-24-2012 06:56 AM

Good morning everyone :)

I like the aquatic theme.....Beach Bum for superjen - adding it now. I put you in Group 3 with Marilyn so she isn't swimming alone. You know how it is, safety first!

Hi Arlene :) Welcome aboard! I'm adding your categories now as well. Put on you sunscreen and shades and have fun.

Now here are some fun water topics if your out there lurking and trying to come up with something fun. How about.....

There's a Shark in the Water (no fish involved)
Just Keep Bailing
Ahoy Matey
Anchors Away
Does This Suit Make Me Look Fat?
Flotation Devices
Sand Castles

Question of the Day....What color is your bathing suit?

Plain Jane 06-24-2012 08:41 AM

Does This Suit Make Me Look Fat?

LOL! That sounds like a nail polish color!

Turquoise, btw, but it's worn out and I need to go try some on...

Plain Jane 06-24-2012 08:43 AM

Oh, yeah...I'm lurking! With intent!

Save me a spot in Group 1...I have to think awhile about my topic.

texasyaya 06-24-2012 08:47 AM

My swimsuit is black, and currently wet since I just got home from the pool.
I'm lurking for now.

I was just thinking about you this morning! Are you still working those loooong hours? Glad you are here :)

I've reserved your spot (s).

I need to get a new suit too. Looking for a new suit is almost as much fun as trying to find jeans that fit, or shoes that work. Sigh.

Arlene_C 06-24-2012 09:24 AM

Question of the Day....What color is your bathing suit?

Mine is hot pink and dry as a bone! Gotta take a swim!

We see you. And don't you look fine? Swimming is great exercise!

Jump in when you're ready.

mrslaporte 06-24-2012 12:11 PM

Swim suit.. I have more than one. Blue floral w/ skirt is the one I wore most recently. But that was in Feb. Good to see a few more joining the party. Janice... Can I have a double? It's been a rough weekend.

Jabauer 06-24-2012 01:25 PM

Marilyn, how is the family feeling?

I am kind of addicted to buying bathing suits, I probably have at least a dozen, this year I already bought 3 new ones.

I am still thinking about another spot, how about start me in a new group with "I's 5 o'clock somewhere"

normat 06-24-2012 03:14 PM

Well, you wouldn't want to see my bathing suit, I don't have one. What a frightful sight that would be. :shock: Will a t-shirt and knickers do? LOL

normat 06-24-2012 03:23 PM

I've come up dry for a subject matter, so will think on it and get back to you.

Jmaraul 06-24-2012 04:23 PM

Janice - added you in a new Group...#4. Someone should come along and do one of these.

Happy Hour
Give Me a Double
Last Call

I love that word - knickers. It makes me giggle.

nsmac1 06-24-2012 06:23 PM

Well I was in the PAT 22. Not sure what people thought of mine since it was my first time with this type of project. I also didn't have my full sash to work with but I would if I joined this one....hmmm not sure what to do.

Well, since you'll have all your toys, I think you just need to come up with a few rockin' topics and pick a group or two to join. We love all kinds of arty goodness, so show us what you've got!

How many spots can I put you in for this round? :)

klb1082 06-25-2012 07:37 AM

Woo hoo! I have been waiting for this to open. :)
Can I please have a spot in Group 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6?
Group 1 = "art of Suzy Toronto"
Group 2 = "Steampunk"
Group 4 = "Beer Garden"
Group 5 = "bright, colorful crosses"
Group 6 = "Inspirational"
Thanks!

How about "T-shirts and knickers" for a topic?
