Card Swap #2 (edited with those I've received)

Okay, so it is time to prep for the next card swap.

First, the "expectations":
-each person must mail their cards by Friday, April 25th. If not, you will be excluded from the round. This time, rather than sending them in two groups, we will wait for all of them to come in.
-each person must make cards that are no greater than 5x7, but can be any size below that
-each person will make a 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 within the US.

Second, the "theme":
-based on the poll, we will be making THANK YOU cards this round.
-In general, it is easiest to make your cards similar or the same, but it is not a requirement.

Third, the "sign up":
-sign up now Smile on this thread
-I will PM my address out to each person in a week or so.

I hope all of this makes sense. I wanted to put out the "expectations" prior to starting so that you knew what you were signing up for. If you have any questions/concerns/suggestions, please post them here.

Well, let's see. How about 3 weeks from today for them to be mailed by. That would mean everyone's cards must be mailed by:
Friday, April 25th

Please make: 5 cards

Please note, new people are still welcome to sign up. It will not change how many cards we are making.

I just put mine in the mail to you Stephanie! And even remembered the return postage. Wink LOL! The lady at the post office wasn't the brightest, so she was putting stamps on it. I hope it's enough, but if not, I will just pay the remainder when it arrives.

I did mine today, hooray!!!!! I tell ya, I really agonize over my card color schemes. Lol Hope this works for folks, I ended up using red cardstock for the cards - they look cool, I think. Wink

Anyhow, Stephanie, they're going out first class mail tomorrow. I put the cardboard in again (a heavier cardboard this time, so it made for additional postage).

I think I totally baffled the lady at the post office trying to explain I needed postage on the inside enveloped, etc. etc.

Let me know if it ends up not being enough...she was thouroughly confused haha!

Luckily I don't have that problem, they always understand what I am saying before I even finish talking.

I have sent mine out. He said you should get them either sat or mon.

I am sooooooooooo glad I have a digital postal scale! DH bought it for me for Christmas 2006 and thinks he's so smart for his choice of a gift. Lol (he's right though, it rocks!)
