Default Engagement/Bridal Shower/Wedding Card Swap, due 4/1/11

Name of Swap: Engagement/Bridal Shower/Wedding Card Swap

Description: It seems like lately I can't make cards fast enough for engagements, bridal showers, and weddings... so, let's have a swap to get craftin' and share some ideas! I will have three categories, so feel free to sign up for more than one, but please make a different card design for each one. If you make standard sized cards (5 1/2 X 4 1/4") you do not need to include an envelope, but if it is any other size please provide envelopes.

Quantity: 4+1 (you will get 4 cards back in your chosen category; +1 is for the hostess)

Vendor products: NVR. Please use at least 2 layers and 1 embellishment.

Deadlines:
-Sign-up date: You may continue to sign up through Fri, 3/18/11.
-Due IN Hand: Cards are due (not post-marked) by Fri, 4/1/11.
-Return Date: Cards will be mailed back to you by Wed, 4/6/11. If I receive them all earlier, I will mail them out earlier.

Mailing instructions:
Place swap items in a large baggie for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper and include in the baggie for identification purposes. Place baggie inside a self-addressed stamped envelope for return mail purposes. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount that it takes to mail to the swap hostess. To insure that enough postage will cover the returned swap items, include additional postage which will be returned if not used. Place your baggie and/or SASE envelope inside your mailing envelope and address it to:

Kathy Hawkins
11050 S Auden Cir
Missouri City, TX 77459

Participating swappers will be listed in the post below. Once I receive your cards, your name will be changed to red.

I'm tired. My DH is very sick with a virus and I don't know if it's all men or just him, but he has transformed into a very big baby. I love him very much, but he's running me ragged. lol

I'm hoping to get to work on some swaps today while he's resting. Hopefully.

I hope he gets to feeling better soon (and you get some rest)! Mine is the same way when it comes to anything medical/dental. Have fun working on your swaps!

I'm excited to see your cards Kim! I am jealous of your snow... here in Texas it's just been cold and rainy.

My husband and I are leaving for Vegas tomorrow morning, so I probably won't be able to reply until Wednesday. If we get an new members, I'll add y'all next week.

It was a great vacay, but I did not come home a millionaire, so have spent this week at work LOL We'll likely have an ice/snow day here in Houston on Friday, so I am very much looking forward to that!! What are you studying?

TGIF! Any takers for our swap? With spring and summer right around the corner, it's getting to be wedding season! Why not join our swap and stock up on much-needed cards?

Good luck with school! How much longer do you have? I am an occupational therapist, and I sure don't miss those school days... at all! LOL

As far as sign-ups, I have no idea what to do! I'm hoping more people will sign up as it gets closer? Or is this just not a popular theme? If we don't get more swappers, I was thinking of decreasing the number of cards each person makes, or just signing myself up to increase the numbers and avoid any duplicates in your swap returns. Thoughts? This is my first swap to host, so I am open to any suggestions?

I am just getting my prereq. classes done so have not officially started the nursing program yet. It is tough. I do quite a bit of OT work at my job now with the kiddos. I thought about going into that at one point but opted for the nursing instead!
