Are we sending our partner a card... or are we sending a new card, not used?

biasbabe 08/18/2013 #

Please send 1 card to each partner,10 of them. I added to the swap description to be more clarified.

nyanSan 08/19/2013 #

should the cards be written on or do we send them blank?

nyanSan 08/19/2013 #

Also, does "card" refer to postcard or to a folded holiday card?

biasbabe 08/19/2013 #

Cards are to be written in, and they are to be Folded cards.

Carolinnadias 10/ 3/2013 #

Can I use ATc cards?

needlewings 10/ 4/2013 #

So if you don't want any faith in it, I would think that you don't want the words "Christmas" on it either. It's sad to say that people get bent out of shape over this thing:(

Technically speaking, It would have to say Season's Greetings or Happy Holidays then.

biasbabe 10/ 5/2013 #

@needlewings it can say Christmas, I love Christmas cards,but the reason I said keep your faith private , it was meant for people not to discuss there religion in the swap to others. I had this happen before in a swap and people got way bent out of shape when the swapper sent the Christmas card and in the inside they decided to discuss what their religion was. And then tell them theirs was a awesome religion to join. @carolinnadias no, these are to be regular Holiday card size No ATC's

My goodness biasbabe are people really that upset getting a Christmas Card that may say "hope you are blessed" or something like that. or even just the word with Christ in it. Unreal! Maybe it should be All Around the World - Holiday card.?

JoanneWong 10/11/2013 #

can it be a handmade flat card with writings at the back? just wondering :) thanks.

biasbabe 10/11/2013 #

Don't' forget newbies you must have a well filled out profile.

abaca30 10/12/2013 #

I am a newbie. I love making cards and have been told they are pretty good. I would love to join this swap and start earning some ratings. Is my profile detailed enough to join?

biasbabe 10/12/2013 #

@abaca30 take a look at some of the seasoned swappers to get more of a idea of how to fill up your profile. It does need to be more filled out.Thank you for asking about it.

thebragal 10/12/2013 #

@JoanneWong the swap AND the comments say 'folded card'.

biasbabe 10/22/2013 #

It is so nice to see so many people join my swap. If you have any questions let me know. Robin

mamajoy 10/27/2013 #

We are talking "greeting card" type holiday cards. I would be thrilled to get a card from a different religion. How wonderful to learn about other customs and beliefs in such a simple way. However, mine will be a Christmas card.

pinkrenegade 10/30/2013 #

I'm # 140 ~ I wonder what I'd look like if I got to be that old...?

sunshinegirl76 11/ 2/2013 #

I'm not religious myself, but I definitely wouldn't find a sentiment about blessings offensive - just prefer not to have something that talks about "Lord" or "Christ" because I can't relate to it...but even so, come on a Christmas card is supposed to be something fun, not to get upset about :) I'd rather get a clean religious one than a dirty, dingy secular one, kwim? Either way, personally I'd prefer something Christmas that's not religious but also wouldn't expect someone to go out and buy a new one if the ones they have at home are religious.

bebeboo 11/ 2/2013 #

What's going on with this swap? Its past deadline and I don't have partners

TC 11/ 2/2013 #

I heard that the swap host has been in the hospital. I'm sure she will assign partners as soon as she is able.

bebeboo 11/ 3/2013 #

Oh wow right. Thanks TC :) Didn't know this. Hope all is well.

SweetClementine 11/ 3/2013 #

@biasbabe was unexpectedly in the hospital last weekend, and I am unsure if she has been released yet. She asked me to post here, and I will update if I hear from her again. Hopefully she will be back soon and will update herself. Thanks for sending good thoughts her way!

pammykn 11/ 3/2013 #

Sending warm thoughts and healing wishes your way @biasbabe

bebeboo 11/ 4/2013 #

Sending get wells from Australia. not being insensitive but, there are people dropping the swap is there anyone wh can be appointed to take over the swap?? This was a great swap alot are looking forward to it.

Babytreese 11/ 4/2013 #

I'm with bebeboo...can someone take over?

TC 11/ 5/2013 #

No one can step in and assign partners, but if @biasbabe doesn't return by the 6th, perhaps an experienced host can create a new, duplicate swap.

Melissa150025 11/ 6/2013 #

Will this swap resume soon?

racheljohnson 11/ 6/2013 #

I went ahead and changed the sign up deadline for this swap to November 5th, so that @biasbabe has a few more days to come check over the participants and initiate the partner assignment before the system automatically deletes the swap.

Of course, another participant could host a similar swap, as @TC suggests. And participants can still drop from this swap if they are concerned.

Let me know if you have any questions,

Roesei, I left you a message in your email but wanted to let you know here too. Your Christmas card that I sent you was returned today with the envelope shredded and in a plastic bag. :( I will send you out another one but wanted you to know just in case you were looking for it. :) Thanks!! Suzy :)

bcdebinbc 12/24/2013 #

rec'd Terry's angelling card for the missing one, thanks Terry! ^5

biasbabe 12/28/2013 #

Thanks You all. I hope you all had a great Christmas. And @suzy I had a package come back to me like that from Canada. It come back through customs like that. They opened it up thinking something was weird in it. No apology from them what so ever. They even opened the little package that was sealed as well.
