ATC swap! thread - sign up here

This is a branch off of the artist trading cards thread

If you have questions about what to do and what this is about, please see the thread posted above.

This is a SIGN UP for our first round of swaps!  DUE MAY 10 in my HOT LITTLE HANDS

The themes are (you can pick 1 or more)

--People
--Animals
--Surprise (anything you want to make - it will be a surprise)

For each theme you want to do, you will send 3 cards and get 3 back. Hopefully there will be enough so I can swap you within theme but, if not, then you'll get a mix.

Cards need to be 2.5x3.5 inches. You can use any medium you wish. Please avoid heavy embellishments/thick cards (like 1/4 inch, not like cardstock). Please send stuff you are proud of. Most of us are not "artist" but the fun of doing ATCs is that we can share our unique artistic ways of doing things. Cards that are not to size will be returned to you.

Let us know in the thread which themes you are gonna make and send for. I set the due date in a little over a month.

ON THE BACK

On the back, please label the card with your name, user name (vegweb or ATCs or both), and the name of your card if you have one. You can also label it "vegweb swap" and the date so people can remember where the card was from.

If you have an account on atcsforall, let me know and i'll give you itrader feedback since you mailed to me.

MAILING
Once ready, MESSAGE ME for my address and send me your cards (see other thread for links).

Everyone: please send a LABEL with your address on it. I'll supply envelopes

US: please send postage equal to the cost to mail your envelop. 3 cards are 1 stamp, more cards might cost more. If you feel lazy or want to help with international postage, you can send me a $1 to cover your postage.

International: if you are outside the US, I'll pay to ship your stuff back.

Shortly after the deadline, I will swap around the cards and mail out the packages to people.

Quickie Reminders

-Everyone is welcome to play! Even if your work is "stick figures", if you put time and care into your work that's fine!
-If you have questions, check out the link above or send me a PM.

So who wants to play? I'll update this list as people sign up. i'm going to do a general list, no theme lists. but theme away!

Oy.  I did one specifically for llg, but I'm not sure if she's still doing this.  I should make a different card.  It was the hardest card to make and I have no attention span, so it's a bit wonky.  Maybe I'll have time before all of the cards come in to whip up another one.

I'm still in.  I have one more to do.  I'm doing all mine the same media.  It is different though.... so, I hope everyone likes them anyways.  My art skills aren't the most fabulous.

I received algae's cards today!!!

And she sent me candy from Germany.  just sayin'  ::)

Definitely join in next time, jess.  We do this about once a year - if someone organizes it.  If you want to do one in the meantime, you can go to www.atcsforall.com.  They have themed swaps where you make three cards (and usually a fourth for the organizer there).  It's a lot of fun.  I did a  few ages ago there and then ran out of time.

yeah I have to apologise for no treat, note or anything except for the cards.  My day was super fucking busy yesterday thanks to the guy who was supposed to help me telling me he was too busy to help so I had to do 2 peoples work.  I had to run to get to the post shop in time.

But I did *think* of writing a note.  It's the thought that counts ::)

I didn't send a note or a bonus card or anything either.  Now I feel bad.  For what it's worth though, I think hh is awesome. :)

HH rarely writes notes so I know she will understand. she wrote ONE to me once and pointed out how it was a big deal.
Love that HH....because she does THINK about writing notes, I know she does!!!
I wrote a small tiny one just to be cute.
I can't wait to get my cards!!!

lol.  So very true.  I consider a hand-written address to be the note.

I received pg's, l2a's & Noah's cards today!  What's the worst part of being the coordinator?  Seeing all of the awesome, gorgeous, gory (on N's part) work and realizing my cards are amateurish in comparison.  DANG all y'alls cards are awesome.
