Description:

If you have been in my totally tacky swap Or my WT ??? swap You might love this challenge.

Of course, we are making atcs. You will make 3. One for 2 partners and one for me as a hostess thank you.

Each lucky players will get an envelope of various small scraps of papers, to make scrappy backgrounds. Each player will not get the same scraps. You will not be able to make 3 identical backgrounds with your scraps. You are to make scrappy backgrounds and add your own embellishments. Consider sealing your cards or gluing scraps down very well.

THERE IS A THEME, FLOWERS OR CATS. This is the common themes that will unite us in the swap.

You will send me a card, and I will thank you in the comments. I wont be able to RATE all of you only my two partners. If you are lucky enough to get me a partner to send to, then you will make me 2 cards one flower one cat. I will put a photo of your card sent to me on flickr. with your swap-bot nickname.

Each player will get an atc from me. I die cut some flowers from the scraps while I was stuffing the envelopes. I have not started the cards. My two partners will get a cat card from me and the above mentioned flower card.

These envelopes weigh over an ounce, it will cost me 71cents to mail to each person. In order to participate, you must agree that you can afford to reimburse me for my initial mailing cost, by sending me unused postage stamps. A forever stamps and an extra ounce stamp or any equivalent. No puppies or kittens, or goats.

This is usa only.

I might close the swap early if it fills up fast and I run out of envelops. I have not established a limit to this swap at this time.

I'm dense, so to be clear, you will send out envies of scraps to all participants. We will make 3 ATC's, from those scraps, (plus extras). One goes to each of our 2 partners and one goes to you with the postage reimbursement...do I have it?

AZmom875 07/31/2018 #

Yes whyte willow you have it right.

A very good question was asked.

ANSWER NO you can use your own stuff on the cards as well as the scraps I sent.
