  • ATCs must be 2.5" by 3.5" and on sturdy paper, (Watercolor, heavy card stock, Chip board etc)
  • Do your best work. I know this is a lot of cards, but the swap is sender's choice so you can get started on them right away. No slap-dash glue or smudged stamps. All mediums welcome (From Hand Drawn or Painted, Mixed Media Collage, Digital Hybrid or Stamped.)
  • No newbies, sorry, it's too big a swap. Must have at least 10 type 3 swaps completed and a minimum of 4.95 rating.

  • Make sure your cards are sent in an envelope or sleeve to protect them. Sign the backs with your username, real name, AND the name of the swap.
  • No recent or unexplained 1's or 3's.. Profiles will be checked and I will ban anyone I feel questionable.

Any questions please pm me!

I will angel any flakers, once you have rated them a 1.

This sounds amazing!! :D What if 20 people don't sign up though :(

luckycharms 11/ 2/2014 #

Then we will swap with all that do sign up!...... Let's keep fingers crossed there will be 20. I did one last year and it was amazing seeing all the great atcs that I received!

urocyonfox 11/ 2/2014 #

:D that sounds awesome! Oh I hope we get 20 people to sign up, I might go ahead and get started now.

I have started working on mine too!!!! I figured that it couldn't hurt to have too many.

If this one goes well would you consider hosting another MEGA that doesn't have a theme...sender's choice maybe?

luckycharms 11/ 3/2014 #

beenebag, ( what a cute name), I would consider doing another after Christmas, if this swap does well. It really is wonderful going to your mail box and getting so many amazing and different atc at once!!

Does it have to be traditional Christmas style Christmas trees or can it be a little contemporary or modern.

luckycharms 11/ 7/2014 #

@suepier you can do your own take of a Christmas tree, just make it festive!!

jnnmarch 11/10/2014 #

I cant wait to see all of them :) @beenebag that is a good Idea, Ill be keeping my eye out for more of these ATC swaps! This is such a great way to increase your ATC collection! Thank you @luckycharms for hosting this swap!

I spent most of yesterday working on the cards so, I made great progress. I'm very excited about this swap. I'll probably be able to send at least some right away. I'll be working more on them today

I think a MEGA swap was the first kind I did when I joined SwapBot way back when and it was so much fun. So many different pieces of artwork. And I liked the idea of working in a series...not every card had to be exactly the same (so you didn't get bored just cranking out the same thing over and over) but they did look like a set with the same style. Keeping my fingers crossed that this goes well. Unfortunately, I can't commit on this round.

I worked on mine all weekend and They were fuuun! Tried some new stuff on ATCs I've never done before. I'm at a point on them where I dunno if I want to add a little more or leave them simplistically cute. :3

luckycharms 11/11/2014 #

I completely understand where you are coming from @urocyonfox I have that problem to sometimes.. My cards are finished also!!!

DG 11/12/2014 #

This would be a fun one for Valentines Day too. Do you think you might be up to hosting one for that Lucky Charms?

luckycharms 11/12/2014 #

HaHaha. .. @DG I was actually thinking of one for Valentine. I like theme swaps, and how everyone's interpretation of that theme turns out.

jnnmarch 11/14/2014 #

So stinking excited!!! This is my first huge swap, and I cannot wait to finish and send my ATC's :)

@luckycharms ..a Valentine one would be awesome too!!! @DG ..good idea:)
