Postal 3Rd Annual WHat's your Poison Drink swap Due May 30th 2013
WHat's your Poison Drink swap Due May 30th 2013
Here I go again and I could use the help of all you ladies to make this a successful swap
Now who canít use a nice drink after a long day at work. Looking forward to meeting the girls for a few drinks and some shopping. Or kicking back at home with a glass of wine or a cold beer. I am a margarita girl. How about a nice cup of hot coco by the fire. Coffee while you watch the snow fall. Be creative and have fun with it. So what is your Poison? Use different color combos.
Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take.
Make your cards theme related to your choice of drink. The stamps U chose to ink should reflect You. Ink some ladies with cocktails in hand, ink a beer can any drink you can think of. Coffee, tea, whatever your drink of choice is. But have fun doing it. Oh Heck have a drink while you are doing it. We want our swapper to feel as if they are receiving a card from a special friend. Be you I encourage sense of humor and off the cuff cards. If you are not into this you can still join and pm me and tell me you do not want sassy off the cuff cards. I want everyone to be happy and have fun. Anything goes here.
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.
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. If you make a long card or different size please include envies.

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.
