Default Open ~ Fall Colored Cards ~ Due October 17th ~ With Prizes!

Fall Colors--reds, oranges, brown, yellow, okra--is that really a color? Let's dig out those ink pads with any of the fall colors and create a card!

The theme can be a Thanksgiving card or a Halloween card or a birthday card or thinking of you or get well or thank you or really any occasion. The card can have a sentiment or not--your choice!

Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take. AND--there will be prizes!

Description: Full Size Card- 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Please use at least 2 layers & 1 embellishment! If you make a size different than this, please include an envie. You must have a stamped image on the front of your card--punch art is fine, but please not all Cricut images or other die cuts like that.

Quantity: 5+1 -You will not get one of your own back, so make an extra one for yourself!

Vendor Products: Any stamp from any company, but PLEASE use very good quality cardstock (PTI/Gina K/SU), No vendor restriction on embellishments - use as many embellishments as you like. Designer papers are encouraged, but not required.

Due Date: Friday, October 17th - I will mail them as soon as I receive all swaps! Please post in the thread or send me a PM when your cards are postal.

Mailing instructions: Place swap cards in a large baggie for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper or the baggie for identification purposes.

Swap Return: Please include self-addressed stamped envelope. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount used to mail to hostess. Please include 2 additional stamps to insure enough postage to return swaps. Additional postage will be returned if not used. If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $5.75 priority stamp and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. If sending outside the US--please send $8 US cash or stamps for one set of cards and $10 for two sets and even more money if you have three of more sets of cards to swap. I will return whatever is left to you.

OK--this is how you can win some prizes in your return envie:
1--Sign up for two or more spots.
2--Be the 25th or 50th name or 75th or maybe 100th to be added to the list
3--Other prizes will be added later during the chatter in this thread!

Please post or PM me with any questions.

Please mail swaps to:
Barb Deichl
Fall Colors
S25W30189 Jenna Lane
Waukesha, WI 53188-9136

Good Morning Ladies! This might be my last post until Sunday. I am headed to the Post Office this morning to mail the swapped out WS/PB cards, along with some swaps I completed. I have a couple of errands and some grocery shopping as we have out of town guests for the next two nights. Tomorrow is an early morning as we, along with our Colorado friends, will leave around 7 for Green Bay with Ovarian Cancer Golf Outing, that was started 4 years ago by one of my college roommates who sadly passed away of that disease 3 years ago. We will not be back home until around 10. Saturday we leave for California and I will probably not be online that day. I hope to see everyone on Sunday!

Please keep this swap bumped. If anyone has questions, I will answer as soon as I can. If anyone wants to join, I will also do that next time I am here. Thanks!

Hi Barb,

I haven't entered any swaps for quite some time but this looks like a good one to start up again. Please put me down for 1 spot for now.

Thanks,

Good Morning from Palm Springs. It was quite a trip---literally and figuratively, getting here, so here is a recap................. The golf outing on Friday was great--in fact, we tied for first place! We got home around 11 Friday night. I had a voice mail on my cell Saturday morning that our connecting flight from Phoenix to Palm Springs was canceled. I called and was on hold for close to a half hour—then I picked up our landline and called from there. They picked up within a minute or two and our only option was to leave Milwaukee at 11:40 and go through Chicago, then Phoenix to Palm Springs. We would have to leave the house in one hour, at 10:00, instead of the 3:00 that we planned. Roomie was not packed, but I did have my clothes set aside. Our friends from Colorado were flying out of Chicago at 4:00 (I even asked the agent if there was a flight around that time from there, but nothing). They rearranged their rental car—with baggage and two golf bags, to fit our stuff and they dropped us off at Milwaukee airport, since they were going past and we would not need to leave a car there for 8 days. So—rushing for one hour, watering all flowers and vegetables while showing roomie’s sister what to do as she will do it while we are done (And she has memory issues, so that takes a bit of time to explain and diagram and explain again! I am checking off the list of things to remember to do—I always make that reminder list and we were off…………….. Yes, a bit frazzled, but on our way to the airport, our checked bag jammed in the trunk with our backpack and carryon between us in the back seat. A two plus hour layover in both Chicago and Phoenix and we arrived in Palm Springs about 7:30. We took a shuttle to the Renaissance Hotel to find out we were at the wrong one and our resort was a half hour, $60 taxi ride, away! We finally checked in and we have a gorgeous corner room with windows on two sides, views of the mountains from one and the golf course and pool from the other. Ahhhhh—we are set! And, it is only going to be 108-110 all week, with a low of 82 or so every night. It was just 90 at 1:00 last night! Dry Heat they Say!

Sorry to bore you, but that has been my past 24 some hours………………………

I hope you have a great Sunday and a wonderful start to a new week!
