Card Swap #6 - Thank You Cards (updated with pic)

First, the "expectations":
-each person must mail their cards by Monday, Sep 15th. 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 Thank You Cards 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 on this thread
-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.

I never got your address Sad

Also, do you guys "sign" your cards on the back. I use a "handmade by _____" stamp on cards usually and didn't know if we did it for these cards! Thanks Smile

Meg, did you get my address this time?
As for the "made by", most of us do not do this but a few do. It is up to you.

Well, darn it!

I thought I had a stroke of creativity hit me, so I made 5 thank you cards using a new technique....

BUT....

I really don't think they would make the trip in packages twice because they are pretty delicate. :confused: So much for that!!!

So, back to the drawing board. LOL Atleast I have more thank you notes for myself.:rolleyes: I will take pics tomorrow.

darn it indeed, Charys! That stinks...though I'm sure you'll use them...or sell them on etsy with your others and the extra padding from all the other cards you're selling should keep them safe Biggrin

Just waiting for one more set in the mail...

I asked a friend IRL to participate and I told her she should just handed them directly to me. Trust me, those who get her cards will love them. She is a wonderful scrapper and has all the supplies to make fantastic cards. I hope no one minds, I made her sign up here, but she doesn't have any posts yet of course. I figured she was just participating through me and not directly a part of the exchange. This will most likely be the only one she ever does. I'll try to get her to come introduce herself.

That sounds good to me Stephanie. The more the merrier:)

I'm assuming it's my set your waiting for? Hopefully you'll get it today. I did mail them on Tuesday...

Hi Ladies, I was the one who made the one on the upper right corner. I live near Stephanie and she introduced me to this group. I hope you all like. I haven't really posted much but will get more active once I move and do more card swaps!! Thanks for letting me participate! Smile
