Card Swap #9 - Easter

First, the "expectations":
-each person must mail their cards by Thursday, March 12th. 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 Easter 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 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.

Signed up so far:
MommyCB/Charys

I'm in. If anyone who's signing up has a problem with an expressly Christian Easter card, please make note of it and I'll modify the one that'll go to you.

I can honestly say I don't think I've ever had more fun creating a card in my life! I had so much fun with these! Smile Infact, I'm making TWO completely different sets. LOL

They're not really detailed or anything, they're just fun! I really never had a card come together like these. I hope everyone likes them...

Michelle needs to be removed from this round. She just messaged me on FB and her family is all sick. Sad I hope they are feeling better soon.

I am sending mine, but it will be down to the wire. Once I prep everything, they assemble pretty easy. Unfortunately, my cricut was acting up and it cut 3 of the 4 "items" bad. So I need to recut them tomorrow night.

Mine are done, but I wasn't able to make the post office while out this morning before Karl feel asleep. He just woke up and our post office closes at 4. If it's cool I'll mail them tomorrow morning, if not I'll just use them for our relatives.
Let me know what works.
