Look through any magazines, catalogs, etc and find a picture that will fit on a postcard. This is not a collage, it's one picture that you find that's about the size of a postcard.

Cut-n-paste the picture onto a piece of cardboard, the inner 4x6" cardboard you cut out to make the frame guide. or old cereal boxes, or heavy cardstock.

For example here's a postcard I made from a photo in a CAA Magazine:



You will be assigned one partner. Send the postcard with a short note on the back. I like to write where I got the cut-out picture from (as well as a short greeting).

Include your swap-bot username and the name of the swap on the postcard.

Important administration stuff:

I check to see that everyone is rated and will add a "Finished" stamp to the Discussion section when all postcards are sent, received and rated.

I send out nudge 'please rate' messages around the one month mark after everyone has mailed their cards.

If you haven't received a postcard around the one month mark, let me know.

I've been noticing an increasing amount of blank comments on profiles. When rating please comment on the card received. Let's make our partners feel like their postcard matters. So please, no blank comments. Example of what you could write: Thank you for {describe the item}. It brightened my day...Thank you for the Van Gogh sunflower art card. It brightened my day.

Thanks nannydino. :) Just 2 more ratings to go and I'll add my 'finished' stamp to this swap.

Still waiting for one more rating. I sent a nudge on Sep 17. No response.

Looks like it unlikely that the last rating will happen. The sender is not responding to nudge messages. I have removed the member from the FPRU group.

I now consider this swap archived, but not finished/completed. So no Finished stamp to add for closure.
