Welcome to the Ostara Postcard Swap.

Like last time you will be sending a card to your partner inspired by the Spring Equinox/Ostara/Alban Eilir. The difference from last time apart from the holiday is that this time it's homemade all the way, so I've made it a Type 3. You will have one partner and the swap is open to all members of the group. It's your choice whether you want to do it post card or greeting card style.

Inside or on the back of the card you could write a greeting for your partner, something about how you celebrate Ostara, a poem or a song, a recipe or maybe a spell. Anything goes as long as it's Ostara related.

This is not profile specific so you could start now if you want. You will have three weeks for making the card after the partners are assigned, since we're not as pressed for time as we were for the Imbolc swap. The send by date is one week before the Equinox so there's a chance it will arrive in time.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. I'm here to help.

Remember that if you flake you will be turned into a toad and then deleted from the group ;)

Quick question: Should we make a card of postcard? In the description it says "inside the card" but in paragraph 1 it mentions a postcard.

I took it as a typo since it's a post card it should be on not in the card.

It's just imprecise writing xD It's up to you how you make it, if you want to do it post card style with artwork on the front and writing on the back or if you want to make it greeting card style where you open it up and write inside. I also haven't put on any sizes because I want that to be up to the person making the card what size they're comfortable working with and think will fit their idea. I think it stems from the fact that @LadyBathory and I talk a lot about these swaps and we know what each other means LOL

Ok, got it-it's our own interpretation. :)

Just make sure the postcard size is what the usps size requirements are.....too small it won't mail and too large they will charge you as a letter or more and not the post card rate.

I will have to move this to my watch list for now. I'm getting slammed here with too much work. :(
