Default *COMPLETE* PLEASE DELETE Wedding Card Swap - DUE AUGUST 1ST

It's wedding season!! The warmer weather is finally here, and I have five weddings on my calendar this year. How many do you have?

EVERYONE IS WELCOME!!

PLEASE JOIN A WEDDING CARD SWAP!!

SWAP DUE DATE: AUGUST 1, 2013
Your swaps will be postal to you no later than AUGUST 5, 2013.
Please, please - if you sign up, please don't be late. I will not wait for any late packages.
Please note, I am in Canada - packages do take about 2 weeks to get to me - sometimes more.

Flowers, love, wedding bells, hearts - anything "weddingish" - for those bride and grooms "to-be".

Full 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards: 4+1 (1 is for the hostess - you will receive 4 cards in return)

Vendor requirements: PLEASE use only sturdy, quality card stock (SU/PTI/GKD) - no flimsy card stock, please and thanks!
No vendor restriction on embellishments, stamps.
Designer papers are encouraged, but not required.

Feel free to sign up for as many spots as you like, but please prepare a new creation for each spot.
Only submit your best work - something you would be excited to receive in return.

Mailing instructions:
Place your cards in a plastic bag to protect your creations from the rain!
Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper or on your bag, for identification purposes.

Please read the following carefully!
This is a Canadian based swap -
for Canadian swappers - include enough postage (money or stamps) to cover your return swap, plus additional postage which will be returned if not necessary.
for international swappers - please send Canadian dollars or US dollars, approximately $5 per spot. Any unused money will be returned in your envelope.

Have fun with this - feel free to message me any questions you may have.

Hi Tamara--I am one of those that have looked at your swap, but I did not sign up as it seems to be pretty short dated--just my opinion. There is less than a month between the due date and when you posted this swap--so it does not really give us too much time to create the cards. And--many swappers have other swaps due before this that are on our list to complete. Plus, with you being in Canada, if someone signs up from outside Canada, they should have their cards postal no later than the 15th as it can take up to two weeks for a package of cards to arrive.

Maybe you want to change the due date to later in the summer--like mid-August. I realize that does not help with the weddings before that, but it might help to get some swappers.

Again--that is just my opinion......................... Thanks for listening.

You're right - I did think it was quick return, but thought there would be some takers... let's try again - I'll extend the due date. Let's collect some swappers!

I will take one spot for now--and a second one if enough swappers sign up.

If you want to post a note in any swaps that I am hostessing that you are a participant--go ahead. You can then check with the hostess of any others swaps you are in and as them if you can post a "plug" there and you might get more.

AND--be sure to add your swap to your siggy to get more exposure too!

Yes--the link works!

The swap she is speaking of came from my house--but I am not a smoker. I try to "air out" the packages of cards that come from smokers as soon as they arrive, but I am sure some is in the cardstock. I know that some people who smoke put a dryer sheet in their baggie when they send them to take away the smell.

SURE! I would love to see a MDS creation! My sister-in-law has used it, but I haven't had a chance to "play" yet - I think I'm stuck on "old school stamping", but YES PLEASE! I'd love to see your cards!! Can I sign you up?

It's Friday, ladies! What are you creating today?

I'm working on tags for my son's 4th birthday party tomorrow - tags for his goody bags. I'm using the "I DIG YOU" Stampin' Up set.

I should be back in Canada mid July and would like to join your swap! I'm having a crafting day with my sister-in-law next week and can make my cards then.
