This is the SIXTH of a series of ten swaps. You may choose to join one, several, or all.

If you join all of the swaps, you will have a page full of colourful flower ATCs.

The order of colours will be as follows:

1 - Red, 2 - Yellow, 3 - Green, 4 - Orange, 5 - Blue, 6 - Purple, 7 - White, 8 - Pink, 9 - Rainbow, 10 - Catch-up (any colours you missed).

So, for this swap, you will have one partner to whom you send one PURPLE flower ATC. The type of flower is sender's choice.

Only the flower has to be purple. The rest of the ATC can be any colour/s you choose. You can have one flower, or many flowers. It is up to you. You may do realistic, impressionist, abstract, etc so long as it is easy to see that it is a flower, in the correct colour. It can have splashes of another colour, but must remain mostly purple.

As the flower is sender's choice, you can get started on it as soon as you like. I will have a short time between signup and send dates, so that we can progress through these swaps before we lose enthusiasm for them.

Please no sticker slapping, loose glitter or slapdash "She'll be right mate" attempts.

Not everyone is a Michelangelo, but so long as you have put in your best effort and made something YOU would like to receive, then it will be fine.

If you receive an ATC you must rate a 5 even if what you've received is not to your personal liking. Hearts are up to you of course.

Standard ATC rules apply - 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches on a sturdy background. Please protect your artwork with a plastic sleeve, or something similar. On the reverse side of your ATC please put the title of your artwork, your name, username, date created, and contact details.

Newbies, with a well filled out profile, are welcome. Please check other profiles for hints on how to do this.

ALL SWAPPERS Please ensure you have logged into Swapbot just prior to last day to sign up, so that I don't mistakenly think you've left Swapbot (particularly brand new swappers).

NO 1's without very good explanation and no recent 3's without good explanation.

I don't have to say "No flaking" do I??? GOOD!

FOR NEWBIES: Partners are assigned randomly by Swapbot after the signup date has passed.

As this is an INTERNATIONAL swap, if you can not afford international postage - do not join. There are already enough USA ONLY swaps, so please don't complain!

Let's have fun creating a page full of gorgeous blooms.

If you cannot commit to sending on time, perhaps this is not the swap for you. The send by date is the LAST date to send, earlier sending is encouraged.

To all those I emailed - oopsy doopsy. Thank you for those who have taught me about the difference between Cc and Bcc. I could only see Cc but with a little thought (more brain cells early in the morning lol) I clicked on Cc and looky that! It then shows option for Bcc.

At least I know now, so next time I will do that. If I forget how, it is here for a reminder ;)

Thank you for everyone who joins these swaps. You warm up my reptilian heart. <3 (It's coming into winter here and I'm freezing!).

If anyone has any ideas for further series, please let me know. I am always open to suggestions for more swap-fun.

Happy swapping everyone! ^.^

I am missed #5,is anyone interested in doing a private swap with me, if so please message me. Happy Swapping Debi

coffeewithclouds 05/ 6/2014 #

Oh never mind, silly me I see Lizard has thought of that I have just need to make sure I don't miss # 10

abshanghai 05/ 7/2014 #

Hi! Do you think it's best that we wait for Swap#10 to make up for other colours we missed? Or should we start doing private swaps?

I missed 1, 2, 3... I have a #2 ready for private swap.


Lizard 05/ 7/2014 #

@abshanghai Some swappers have already set up private swaps for colours they have missed. So, go ahead if you like.

Round ten will be interesting when all swappers comment which colour they need their partner to do.

abshanghai 05/15/2014 #

Hi! Would anyone want to swap a #2 yellow one with me?

Hezzie 05/19/2014 #

If anyone wants to private swap with me, let me know. I don't need any colors because I've been in this series since the beginning but I don't mind helping people out with their collection :)

Hi, I have a newbie question. My ATC is all set and ready to go except for a plastic sleeve. I don't know where to find one which is even close to the right size. Is there an acceptable alternative? A DIY option? Thanks in advance for your help! ~Wendii

I'll pm you @wendii in case you don't see a comment here.
