Swapping & Returning: Deck the Halls II, due 10/24/12
 
Hi all! I hosted a Christmas Swap 3 years ago and really enjoyed it and decided to do it again. I love making Christmas cards and want to see what you all can make as you are a very talented group of women!

Here are the details:


Description: Must be full cards 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

Quantity: 5 + 1 YOU WILL NOT GET ONE OF YOUR OWN BACK SO MAKE SURE YOU MAKE AN EXTRA FOR YOURSELF. The +1 is for the hostess. No envelopes necessary.

Vendor products: NVR on everything, but please use good quality cardstock such as SU. Please use at least 2 layers & at least 1 embellishment.

You can sign up for as much spots as you want to but you have to make a different card for each spot.

Please sign the back of your cards!
It drives me nuts when I get a card in a swap and I don't know who to give the credit to! Sign your SCS name on the back and you may sign your real name too if you like. Someone may want to leave a comment in your gallery!

Deadline Please have in my hands by 10/24/12. Late swaps will be returned!! I want these all returning by November 1 so we can all make some for Christmas!

Mailing Instructions: Please place cards in a zip lock bag for waterproof purposes. Write your SCS name and your real name on the zip lock bag.

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULL!!!!
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 do not send me cash to buy your stamps. I work full time and do not have the time to do that. Thank you! Also, please include a couple extra stamps in case the return cards have heavier embellishments. Postage will be returned if not used.
For Canadian swappers, money for the return envelope must be in U.S. stamps or U.S. money. No metered mail please.


My address:
Roxane Malland
40488 180th St.
Cyrus, MN 56323


I will give prizes for the first 5 that sign up!
When I receive your cards I will put your name in GREEN!

Saved for other things that I may think of later. ;)

c-mouse 07-19-2012 08:00 AM

I'm in! I love to make Christmas cards and I have some stamps that need some loving.

2CuteCats 07-19-2012 08:01 AM

Welcome Pansy and thanks for joining! So I forgot to ask, when you are a fair judge, what do you judge? I know in your post you mentioned photography.

Gotta get ready for work!

JanetJ 07-19-2012 08:19 AM

Put me down for 1 spot. I need to get started on Christmas Cards!!

2CuteCats 07-19-2012 08:24 AM

Janet - I am thrilled to have you! I love the coffee pics you put on Jeanette's swap (or is it Barb's). Anyway, if you find any Christmas or otherwise to put here, but that would be great!

Forest Ranger 07-19-2012 08:28 AM

I MUST have a spot, Roxane... I love Christmas!

Photography is my main thing....I love to do it especially when I am able to visit with the kids about what, why and when they took the photo. I am qualified to judge leathercraft also but haven't done it for several years as the number of entries is way down.
Am expecting to break 1100 entries at our county fair...Last year we did 1085. time will tell if my guess is correct.

Christmas... My absolute most favorite time of year! Please sign me up for two spots. I went crazy buying Christmas stamps last year so now I can get to using them!

Forest Ranger 07-20-2012 03:12 AM

Good Morning Friends!

T.G.I.F.!!!
Woo Hoo!!!

... ... ... ...

Today is Moon Day,
National Lollipop Day,
Ugly Truck Contest Day,
Chess Day,
and Ice Cream Soda Day.


Enjoy your holiday of choice today!


Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to Not Take Instructions Too Seriously!


A novice drill instructor escorted a group of new recruits to the mess hall, which is one of a drill instructors many responsibilities. After everyone had made it through the chow line, he sat them down and told them, "There are three rules in this mess hall: Shut up! Eat up! Get up!"

Checking to see that he had everyone's attention, he asked, "What is the first rule?"

Much to the amusement of the other instructors, 60 privates yelled in unison, "Shut up, Drill Sergeant!"





:shock: :roll: :mrgreen: :lol: ;)


x0x0x0
Hugs!!!

Carace 07-20-2012 03:15 AM

Love Christmas, can I have one spot please? I'll probably be back for another.
Have a great day!

I forgot to answer your question yesterday Joyce and that was a good question. Yes, anything goes. As long as it is Christmas and 6 A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) cards.

birdieluver 07-20-2012 04:52 AM

OK - let's get in the spirit of the Christmas Season (even though it's July!)

Jmaraul 07-20-2012 11:41 AM

My cards just went postal. Please let me know when they arrive :)

(Now is the part where the hostess gets nervous...."Already??? What did she do, just slap a sticker on some paper?" :wink:)

Nope - I promise - multiple papers, sewing, ribbon, embellishments & stamping - The Works!

JanetJ 07-20-2012 11:42 AM

How in the world did you get them done so soon??!! :confused:

Jmaraul 07-20-2012 11:45 AM

I can't give away all my secrets!

2CuteCats 07-20-2012 02:19 PM

Hi Joyce and Janet and everyone!

Joyce - you must have really been busy as a beaver to get those cards done already! Wow!

Janet - love the Christmas graphics! Keep 'em coming!

Had my injection in my back this afternoon. I felt numb for awhile but that has worn off and the pain is back. But the doc said it could take up to 10 days to before it works. So I am hopeful!

Cooking supper and I am going to go to my stamping room in between going to the grill. Having potatoes, green beans, and chicken breasts.
