Card Swap #10 - Anniversary (deadline 6/1)

First, the "expectations":
-each person must mail their cards by Monday, June 1st. If not, you will be excluded from the round. I will wait for all the cards to come in before sending them back out.
-each person must make cards that are no greater than 5x7, but can be any size below that.
-each person will make 5 cards, which means you will receive 5 cards back.
-each person should enclose envelopes with your cards, homemade envelopes are fine. They just need to be the appropriate size for your cards.
-you must include a self-addressed, stamped envelope so that the cards from others can be easily mailed back to you (must fit up to 5x7 cards). Postage varies depending on your envelope/packaging and type of mail (parcel or first class), talk to your postal office if you have questions. It should definately not be more than $1.80(ish) within the US. Do not attempt to use media mail to mail your cards.

Second, the "theme":
-We will be making Anniversary cards this round.
-In general, it is easiest to make your 5 cards similar or the same, but it is not a requirement.

Third, the "sign up":
-sign up now on this thread, please commit to completing your cards once you sign up.
-Please let me know if you do not have my address and I will PM it.

If you have any questions/concerns/suggestions, please post them here.

Please remember that you must qualify according to exchange guidelines (300 posts overall and 3 months posting; 50 posts on this board and a month posting with us) to participate. If you will qualify by the deadline, that is fine.

I am so glad I decided to join this round! I just finished working on my cards; I am sure they are no where are nice as what some of you are going to create as I am an ameture when it comes to making cards for sure. I have one more element to add to each of them and then they are ready to go.

Jess, I think I got your cards. They just had the first initial and last name on them, are those yours?

I hope everyone got their cards out...

I'm going out of town for the rest of the week, so I'm thinking all the rest of the cards should come in while I'm gone, then I can mail them out on Monday. If for some reason you didn't get yours mailed, this may give your enough time to get them to me.

I'm surprised that yours isn't digital. Do you do much other paper scrapping?

Stephanie, your card is amazing. I love the envelope!

They are all amazing and they look better in person!

Oh, I need to tell you gals that I didn't design the digital card completely by myself. I used a design by DebbieB at 3scrapateers.
