Postal 4th Annual Think Pink Breast Cancer awareness swap.
New Think Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Month card Swap. Due October 20th, 2012.
Cards don't have to be pink.
This is a special swap. October is Breast cancer awareness Month. As a breast cancer survivor as many of my friends here are. I though we would do a think pink card. I will be sending some of these to other women who are facing breast cancer. There is a catch to this swap you must make 2 extra cards and send to two women in your life that you care about.
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.
If you would like to make an extra card to donate to the cause that would be great as I will be selling cards to raise money.
Make your cards theme related to Breast cancer or women your choice We want each person receiving your cards to feel as if they are receiving a card from a friend who cares.
Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take.
Feel free to stop by and discuss anything you would like to discuss. Ask questions or post notes of inspiration. Lets make this a heartfelt swap with smiles and lots of friend.
Full Size Card - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 It could be a regular full size card, Fancy folds, pop ups any style card are always welcome. Funny shapes you decide. If you make a long card or different size please include envies.
(the plus one is for the hostess...that's me
You will make six cards in total and receive five back
You will not get one of your own back, so make sure to make an extra one for yourself!
No vendor restriction, but please use only good quality card stock
Please use at least 2 layers If you donít feel it needs and embellishment then donít use one It is optional.
Take pride in making fabulous cards with friends with a sense of humor in mind
everyone is welcome. If you never done a swap before take the plunge it will be fun.
Although a recipe is not required, some folks may want to know how to case your card, or what kind of technique you are using as we are always trying to learn. If you decide to include your recipe please make sure to add Your Real Name, SCS Name, Swap Name, email address, products and techniques used.
Deadline: In my hands by October 20th, and I will have them postal within 10 days of the due date. So we can then mail to our friends. Cards not received by then will regrettably be returned to sender as not to hold up the swap.
