Default Receiving ~ Congratulations Cards ~ Due May 8th ~ Prizes

Here we are for round 2 of the Congratulations Swap!

It seems that I am in need of Congratulations Cards quite often lately--and that is a good thing!!! I know that I'd like to get some new ideas for this type of card. So, let's do this swap again! AND-there is an opportunity for you to get a prize in your return envie.

Congratulations!!! We say that to someone when they get a new job or a promotion; or to a family with a new baby; or for an engagement; or to a graduate; and the list goes on........... Your card can just have the word Congratulations on the front or be for a specific occasion. It can be elegant or simple or funny--your choice! Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take.

Description: Full Size Card - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Please use at least 2 layers & 1 embellishment! You must have a stamped image on the front of your card--punch art is fine, but please no 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 (SU/PTI/GKD). No vendor restriction on embellishments - use as many embellishments as you like. Designer papers are encouraged, but not required.

Due Date: Wednesday, May 8th I will mail them as soon as I receive all swaps! If I receive the swaps early, I will send them out early. If your cards are received after the due date, I may have to return them to you.

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 a 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 swap--additional postage will be returned if not used. PLEASE SEND ONLY POSTAGE STAMPS, NO DATED STAMPS OR METERED MAIL--My Post Office will not take them. If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $5.60 priority stamp and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. Please note--there was a huge increase in the cost to mail 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

At least you get a prize! I was all excited by her invitation, got over here and found out that I am number eleven! Bummer! Will have to buy my own prize I guess. LOL
Have a good day all!

Good Morning Friends!


YAY!
It’s Friday!

TGIF!!!

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

Today is Kite Flying Day,
National Molasses Bar Day,
Boy Scout Anniversary Day,
Opera Day,
Rebel Day,
Hold onto Your Head Day,
and Laugh and Get Rich Day.



Enjoy your holiday of choice today!



Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
with some Tips for Student Pilots



1. Takeoffs are optional. Landings are mandatory.

2. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller.

3. Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is dangerous.

4. It's always better to be down here wishing you were up there than up there wishing you were down here.

5. The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

6. The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.

7. When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided with the sky.

8. A "good" landing is one from which you can walk away. A "great" landing is one after which they can use the plane again.

9. Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.

10. You know you've landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.





Hugs!

By my count--you are #10. So--yes-you do get a prize.

That makes me happy! I guess I can't count.
Right now DD and I are sitting in Dunn Bros. in another town waiting for a 2:30 p.m. appointment. I just got done buying fabric to make my very first quilt! It will be a pink and brown baby quilt. I have bought 3 quilting books, several magazines, and watched videos made by Jenny at Missouri Star Quilt Co. on You Tube. So wish me luck ladies!

That would be nice, but as a hostess myself I can say that might break the bank! And Jeanette, you should give prizes to everyone. As I recall lots of people join you swaps! You might have to take out a loan. LOL

Good Morning Friends!


YAY!
It’s the WEEKEND!

Enjoy every moment of it!!!

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

Today is Read in the Bathtub Day,
National Bagels & Lox Day,
Toothache Day, (now, WHO would want to celebrate that???)
National Stop Bullying Day,
Weather Day,
and National Inventors’ Day.



Enjoy your holiday of choice today!



Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
with some more Tips for Student Pilots



11. The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of arrival. Large angle of arrival equals a small probability of survival -- and vice versa.

12. Never let an airplane take you somewhere your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier.

13. Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about might be another airplane going in the opposite direction.

14. Reliable sources also report that mountains have been known to hide out in clouds.

15. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.

16. You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

17. Keep looking around. There's always something you've missed.

18. If all you can see out of the windscreen is ground that's going round and round and all you can hear is commotion coming from the passenger compartment, things are not at all as they should be.





Hugs!

Good Morning--I am headed to a Shoebox Swap this morning. It is always a fun time--lots of cards to make, a rummage sale and raffles to win! I should come home with around 75 new cards today.

Stay Safe if you are on the East Coast!
