Card Swap #11 - Birthday (female) *Picture added*

First, the "expectations":
-each person must mail their cards by Monday, July 20th. 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 Birthday cards for women this round. We have done men and we have done kids so it is time for us!
-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.

My cards are done ... but they turned out a little more girly than adult ... I showed my neighbor, and she said they looked like they were for a kid, but then after she looked at them again, she said they were cute and she'd like to get a card like that. So, just be warned that they're a little on the girly side. Wink They came out really cute though!!!!

Will try to get them out today, if I can beat the mailman. But a shower needs to come first, I'm still in my pjs Wink

Stephanie - you haven't moved since last spring, have you? Lol Went looking for your address, and I have it from April '08

Yep, around the corner, but basicly just down the street. We bought a house just down from where we were renting. Tried to buy the one we were renting but he wanted too much.

Got mine today too. Utterly stunned by each and every one. This swap has really blown me away, and here I thought I wouldn't like them being so girly. LOL

I knew yours Charys by reputation and the clear little bags you put the card in. I knew Trina's from her style. I can't wait to figure out who the other ones belong to.

Mine is the middle row all the way on the right... the ones that said "It's my party, I can scrap if I want to" inside. Wink

Mine was the birdie on the bench one Smile I had a lot of fun making these, I'm totally in the next round! I can't wait to get mine! It's a holiday here tomorrow, so I'm hoping I'll get them Tues. or Wed. at the latest.

Mine are generally obvious because they are often the only hybrid/digital, but since there are two this time :), mine are the ones on bottom with the big pink flower.

Oh, and litterally while I'm sitting here, it occured to me that I may have forgotten to go back and glue the inserts in a couple of them. My glue runner ran out and I got another but I can't remember if I remembered to finish them. At least it is easy to fix, sorry if I really did forget.

I love them all! Mine is the top middle. The inside says something to the effect of counting your blessings, not your birthdays. These were the best cards I ever made. I loved the way the sewing looked on them.

Stephanie, I think mine were all together, but I'll double check tomorrow.

I didn't get a flamingo. Sad But I love all of the cards I got!

Mine were the cupcake ones. My friend thought they were more for little girls than adults, but after she looked at them some more, she said she liked them and would like to get one like that. Smile And that was my first time doing that fold with the ribbon.
