This is another of my challenges limited to 16 players, as I have only 15 envelopes.

If you decide to take the challenge, you do agree to the following

  1. You make an atc card for me, and reimburse me for my initial mailing costs 85 cents, postage preferred, no coins. The envelopes weigh more than one ounce and are non machinable.

  2. You will save my mailing address or ask me for address again if you misplace it or cant even read it.

  3. You will make 1 each card for 3 partners as assigned by Swapbot.

  4. Each card will have the following: A. One of the 6 backgrounds I sent. B. at least one canceled postage stamp, yours or ones I sent. C. security envelope lining, yours or ones I sent.

  5. You agree to post in the comments below when my initial envelope to you arrives.

  6. You allow me to post an image of your card sent to me, on my Flickr.com account and album dedicated to this swap.

If you think you are up to the challenge, Join this swap by Sunday, as I will close on or before Sunday. I will mail the 15 envelopes Monday, taking them to the PO to be hand canceled.

You will get an envelope with 6 started backgrounds, many punches from some security envelopes and 7 canceled postage stamps. You MUST use my backgrounds, there are extra to give you options. You do not need to use my postage stamps, nor punches from security envelopes. But see above you do need those 2 things on each card.

The backgrounds in general tend to mounted on chipboard. They will need more work, and some might have my contact info on the back. Just cover that with paper or an address label. You can paint over them, gesso, pull parts off, add more, add washi tape.

You will need to add many things of your own, images, ribbons, lace, paint, ink, embellishments, brads, eyelets, staples, flowers, etc.

Your partners will be assigned right away, Monday, so you can gear your cards to your 3 partners profile likes if you are so inclined.

My 3 partners will have a card inside the initial mailing.

If you have any questions please send me a PM
