Hosting this again as a few people have requested a second swap! ;)

I've always loved those cheesy, old-school ransom notes made from letters cut out of magazines =) For this swap, you will be making a postcard for your partner in the same style. The theme/message are open to you and the only limit is your own imagination... pick a background image for a base and then glue the letters for your message on top. Make sure you glue or seal them down well enough that they will survive mailing! Then throw a stamp on that beautiful card, write a quick note to your partner, address it, and drop it in the mail! Who knows what sort of response you might get from them in return ;)

OK, just to clarify: the message you put on your postcard is not asking for a ransom. The message can be anything you wish -- even something as simple as "Have an awesome day!" The only caveat is that your message must be written using cut-out letters, in the style of old cheesy movie ransom notes.

Open to anyone with a rating of 4.8 or higher as well as newbies with a well-filled out profile. I reserve the right to ban anyone who looks sketchy. I will angel this swap as necessary. If this swap gets a good response, I will probably host it again as it is a theme that I love. If you are going to be late sending your card, you need to communicate with me as well as your partner. Don't be a flaker please -- I will hassle you and be super annoying about it ;)

Ahaha I'm assuming I can write a ransom note if I reallly want to though, right? This is a great idea =]

Um...i don't think it is possible to request a specific sexed partner on here...but i could be wrong...

@mommacdesigns - swapbot assigns the partners, I have no control over that part of it. I must admit I'm curious as to why you would insist on a female partner for this swap??

Newbie here, and couldn't resist this one! What a kick. Will have to go through office recycle bins for magazines for words! 8-)
