Postal 2nd annual Non Traditional Colors Valentine Card Swap. Due January 25th, 2013
New Open Non Traditional Colors Valentine Card Swap. Due January 25th, 2013.
Here I go again And I could use the help of all you ladies to make this a successful swap. I figured we get started early.
I love Valentine's Day and making cards is one of my favorite things. I like the non traditional colors. Cards that most would not expect to get. So Ladies be creative, try out different color combos and have fun. Let your imagination run wild. Last year I did black and white cards. Everyone loved them.
Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take.
The stamps U chose to ink should reflect You. Sentiments are encouraged too..
We want each person receiving your ca
rds to feel as if they are receiving a card from a special friend. Be you I encourage sense of humor and off the cuff cards. If you are not into this you can still join and pm me and tell me you do not want sassy off the cuff cards. I want everyone to be happy and have fun.
You must check in 2 weeks before the end date and let me know you are still in the swap. If you need to drop out that is fine life happens but I don't have the time to pm 20 people a few times to see if you are still in the swap. If you can't do this then don't sign up. Thank you. You must also check in after swap and let us know you received your swap back.
