Welcome 2017!

Send your one partner a store bought pc that is artsy, sent naked (written on and stamped) in the theme of the week. Send an artsy pc that is SPOOKY or HALLOWEEN. Let's stay away from gore unless you are 100% sure recipitant would be open to that.

Choose an artsy PC from your stash or a new shopping adventure. Hoping everyone is in a pleasant mood and plays nicely! Communication and chance for resend is obviously expected before a 3 rating.

40 SPOOKY or HALLOWEEN

No handmade, no ad/free postcards.

Postcards can be store bought, museum bought, from a postcard box set, postcard perforated book set (neatly removed but may still contain perforated edge), from a postcard themed calendar (I bought a few of these in Germany, not sure if they are popular anywhere else? Cut neatly, of course) new or vintage. Zazzle and the like are also acceptable. Artsy can be drawing, illustration, painting, sculpture, design, photograph, collage, objet d'art, etc. It doesn't only have to be art from a museum it can be crafts, tiles, architecture, magazine and Book covers, movies, educational posters, other posters, children's book illustrations, abstract, reproduction. Vintage ads, etc. Some themes will be specific, such as lady. Other weeks the topic will be things like blue, or happy, or even a specific type of art or something about the artist. Artsy can be religious art-any religion and as this is sender's choice only sign up if you are open to receiving religious art. I know I have some to send I've bought in Church and Synagogue gift stores as well as in museums.

Besides museums, bookstores, you can find interesting artsy pc sets on Amazon, I know in Europe many church gift. Shops/counters sell artsy pcs. Either showing the inside or outside of the church. And sometimes pcs of the religious works in the church or of saints, etc.

International, 4.98, no unrated swappers, all 1's & 3's explained/responded to/working on and I reserve the right to remove swappers if needed. Please only sign up if you're open to receiving a variety of artsy types as explained above, knowing some may be a bit different. I will angel if you need to rate your partner a 1 - contact me if that is happening. If I need to angel I will try my best to stay on theme but if I have no more that fit the theme I will do profile surprise artsy card as the angel the best I can.

Spooky could be along the lines of a very foggy or misty scene, graveyard, ominous or dark art, art from Edward Gorey, Nightmare before Christmas, etc. Halloween could be retro reprints of vintage Halloween cards, modern Halloween PCs, obvious Halloween images like jack-o'-lantern, witch, scarecrow, ghost, trick-or-treating, Halloween costumes, headless horseman, zombies, Frankenstein, skeletons, skulls etc.

Gore would be stuff like bloody, guts, serial killers, mid-evil torture, the act of killing, etc

P.S. I'm personally up for anything in this category from overly family friendly to overly gross & gorey.

I don't mind gore either.
