Thumbs up CANCEL/DELETE *NEW & OPEN* DUE 3/15 NON-TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY CARDS

Name of Swap: NON TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY CARDS

Description:
5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Full Cards, at least 2 layers of quality card stock and 1 embellishment of any kind

Lets do a fun swap. This swap is for the unofficial either monthly holiday, weekly holiday or a certain day holiday that we do not usually celebrate. Just a fun way to send cards to family and friends when they least expect we would celebrate this holiday. No traditional holidays are allowed in this swap. Use your imaginations. Who knew January 21st was Squirrel Appreciation Day? Your card does not have to say the actual holiday on it. See the link below for some ideas:

2013 - 2014 bizarre holidays, wacky holidays, obscure holidays, fun days. by Holiday Insights

Quantity: 5 +1 (for the hostess). You will get back one of your own so no need to make an extra one for yourself.

Vendor products: Any stamps companies are excepted BUT PLEASE no stickers.

Recipe (only if you want to include it) : Include Swapper's Real Name, SCS Name, Swap Name, email address, products and techniques used.

Deadlines:
Sign-up date: MARCH 1, 2014. When signing up please indicate what holiday you are doing so I can write up a sheet of what holiday the cards cover.

Due IN Hand: MARCH 15, 2014

Return Postmark Date by: March 20, 2014


Mailing instructions:

Packaging:
Place swap items in a large baggie for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper and include in the baggie for identification purposes.

Swap Return: (Please write the name of the swap on the outside of the envelope before sending it to me)

First Class: Place baggie inside a self-addressed stamped envelope for return mail purposes. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount that it takes to mail to the swap hostess. To insure that enough postage will cover the returned swap items, include additional postage which will be returned if not used.
Priority: Inside your baggie, include a self-addressed priority label and one priority stamp. Swap hostesses will provide priority envelope.
Place your baggie and/or SASE envelope inside your mailing envelope and address it to:


MY ADDRESS: Bonnie Towne
73 John Weik Road
Morris, CT 06763

I have couple of questions: is it stamps only or can we do cricut/paper piecing/die cuts etc? also does each card have to all be alike or can each card be different so we can use up scraps and small quanities?

The cards don't have to be stamped but no stickers please. Each card can be different since we don't have many sign ups at the moment. It really is a fun swap to do. Hope you will join us.

i'm having a hard time trying to decide I love that list!!!! so many fun choices on there I'm quessing we need to add that day on the card itself, right? otherwise how will we know when it is ???? do you want it as part of the card design or place the info where ?
I think you should list some of them so folks can see maybe they don't realize they should click on that link!!! surprised not more joined yet. very cute idea. I do wish the quanity was less than 6 thats a lot for an "odd" off holiday. any chance of 4 instead of 6?????

I edited the main post to let people know your card does not have to have the holiday on the card. My original does say you need to let me know what holiday you are doing so I can let people know what holidays the cards contain.

April has Secretary's Day in it. Just saying.
