Thank you to all the people who joined #1. Everyone sent their swap by the due date. So with that said I am going to do another.
Have you ever spent time and effort to make your ATC only to receive an ATC from your partner that put yours to shame? Have you ever felt like stopping to make ATCs because you don't think you can make yours to the caliber of others? Ever send an ATC and when you receive your partners you wish your name would fall off the one you sent? Have never made an ATC before? This swap is for you. I want to make this swap where you do not have to be under stress to make a picture perfect one. Now of course that does not mean you don't put time and effort into it. Here is a chance to practice making ATCs and to perfect your style.
Very simple rules, make the ATC standard size. 2.5 x 3.5, Medium and theme is up to the maker.
. Stickers are very much permitted if you can incorporate it into the theme but no sticker slapping. In other words you must do more than put stickers on a backing. Make it look like an ATC you would want to receive. Don't forget to recycle those items you already have around the house, magazines, junk mail, catalogs, food containers ext. I've received some very nice ATC with out expensive do dads from craft stores. Now if your ATC can be sold at an art auction you are still welcome to join but remember your partner may be a newbie. Don't complain about their work unless it is very obvious they put no time into it. I will be checking profiles and no unexplained 1s or 3s. I will ban anyone I feel could be a risk. No flakers aloud. We all know life happens so if for what ever reason you can not full fill your obligation email your partner. Let me know and I will try to find an angle for you. I have found many that would be happy to help angle in other swaps so I know they are out there. No excuses to just up and leave and post "sorry, I couldn't do it". DON"T FLAKE, you will be rated a 1 without hesitation. Think before signing up. Email me if you have any questions.
Note: You are not required to send a letter or note. this is an ATC swap not a pen pal swap. Sending extras are not required either. Of course if you want to do either go ahead but do not expect your partner to do so.
