Default Receiving ~~ Congratulations Cards ~~ Due June 6th

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 start a new swap! 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.

Descriptions: Full Size Card- 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Please use at least 2 layers & 1 embellishment!

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

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

Due Date: Wednesday, June 6th - I will mail them as soon as I receive all swaps! 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 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. 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 $5:15 priority stamp and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. If you are mailing from outside the US, please include $5 US (or more for multiple spots) to cover return postage, and 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 your swap to:
Barb Deichl

Good Evening!

Went to get my glasses adjusted after work - they felt like they were squeezing my face! All better now. Going to do some stamping tonight, watch some basketball, listen to a live concert on my satellite radio (Bruce Springsteen from Apollo Theater In NYC).

How about those Badgers, Barb?

Good Morning Ladies--it is a beautiful day here in SE Wisconsin, so we are meeting some friends and going on a hike on the Ice Age Trail. We are packing a lunch and will have picnic too. Our dinner out last night was great--it was at a Serbian place called The Three Brothers and we share 4 entrees between the five of us--one was a spinach/cheese Burek and it was wonderful.

See you all later!
