Default BIRTHDAY CARD KIT SWAP'ped and postal

The best thing about birthdays is everyone has them. And we always need birthday cards. I know there are a few card swaps for birthdays already.but this is card kit swap. I love the inspiration from card swaps but i always end up sending my own cards anyways. With a kit swap I love swapping from our stash. You ladies always coordinate everything so well and there is always a new embellishment that I get in my kit that I've never used and have to figure out what it is and how I'm going to use it.

Ashley I'm sending you a prize for giving me the idea.

No vendor requirements

These are due in my hands February 16th. Its quick but these are easy to put together. If I have them early ill send them early.

This is a 3+1 swap. You wont get one of your own back. The plus one is for me.

Please send in a baggie with your name and your scs name and return postage. No metered mail. Please enclose 2 extra stamps just in case, ill send them back if its not needed.

12 inches of ribbon, fiber, cordage of some kind

It dropped 15 degrees here, started snowing and is not very nice out at all. I am sorry that it is raining so much and your hair is having its own day but I would trade you in an instant.

About my hair. That's what everyone says. I also get. Is that really yours. Yes I
they are my real curls and if you had them you wouldn't want them. If I could trade you and give you them Dea I would gladly. My last good hair day was prolly ten years ago before I got pregnant with my oldest. Although it does make natural horns by itself. And I could state really nice dreadlocks if I go a week without washing it. It does have its ups.

At some Target stores, and some beauty parlors, they sell Mixed Chicks hair products, It works wonders on my excessively curly otherwise uncontrollable hair. Curly Hair Products - Mixed Chicks | A Curly Revolution Something to try if you haven't already.

And my card kits are almost done.

Greetings on this beautiful spring like day in Katy Texas! I am off today for the federal holiday so I'm going to get started on my swaps. Problem is, I need some direction...I have done lots of swaps but not a kit swap on SCS. A few of my questions are:
how will I know how many kits to make for sure?
what does 3+1 mean?
is there a deadline for signing up?
am I to create a sample card and then package all of the ingredients to make that card?
These sound silly to me for asking but I want to be a team player and get everything right!!

No you're fine everybody has to start somewhere. Not too long ago I too was new at this. A kit swap is everything one would need to make a card. 3+1 means you'll make 4 kits one is for me cus I'm hosting. Ill swap the other 3 and you'll get 3 back. O won cut off signing up til a week and half before they're due back. If you want to do other spots that's great just let me know or ill figure it out when you send it. You can make a sample card its not required that would be under optional/extra things if you wanted to do so. Please coordinate your papers/ images well everything in your kit really. The stamped images should be stamped in a copic safe ink like mementos. Or brilliance ink heat set. On white cardstock that measures 5.5 inchesx4.25 inches. A quarter piece. Of 8.5x11 really. Make sure its not a solid image something that one could color in. But not colored in by you, by the person getting the kit.

Thanks so much! Got it figured out now! I have done tons of swaps and even shoebox swaps but the 3+1 threw me because there are more gals signed up than that. I am a SU! demonstrator and promise not to disappoint you ladies!

So want a laugh, I always wondered what Mechanicsville was referencing, I thought Mechanicsville maybe was a reference to Detroit or someplace. i never thought that there was a place called Mechanicsville.....
