Do you have cards you hang on to because you can't bear to throw them away? But they're ugly? Or boring? Or for a holiday that isn't coming around again any time soon? This is your chance to use up these cards! If you have any stickers you can't stand, by all means, stick them all over it!
Here's the thing, though. WE DON'T WANT NEW OR UNUSED BUT UGLY CARDS YOU DIDN'T LIKE AS EXTRAS. OR STICKERS, EITHER. So, the "extras" you'd like to send for the hearts you'd like? Write a nice note inside instead. Let us know why you hate that particular card--tell us about yourself, your day, or your annoying job. We're good listeners! We would like to GET RID OF unwanted things in this swap, not acquire more. So please make your "extra" be because you tried harder on the note, or did the address cute, or something.
Note: I normally enjoy extras, don't get me wrong. I just think that by the nature of the swap, we may be tempted to send some ugly extras thinking, "Haha! Isn't this ugly, too?" and then we'd all have to do another swap like this, to get rid of THOSE things. So let's just say no extras for this. It's a win-win situation. We don't get stuff we don't like, we use up what we hate. We don't have to send good extras. And we get a chatty note from a complete stranger. Fun!
Now, if you DO get extras, don't rate down. And if you DON'T get extras, remember to be looking for reasons to give the person a heart anyway for extra effort, OK? Now we're all happy, and can use our good cards for another swap! :)
Let's say 5 partners for this one, because all it will cost is one stamp. No reason to flake, so no reason to exclude anyone. If I have to angel, I've got plenty of ugly cards to choose from! haha!
