For this swap, you will be making one ATC for one partner. That means it should be 2.5/3.5 and on a sturdy base (cardstock, cardboard, layered paper, etc.)

The theme will be BUMBLE BEES. This theme is pretty open to interpretation, but remember, people signing up will be expecting some sort of bee on their ATC. So please try to incorporate some or all of the following:

-a bumble be or two (or three)

-the colors black, yellow, and white


-honey combs


The media you use is your choice (sender's choice). Feel free to use collage, fabric, paint, pens, markers, stamps, stickers, embellishments, etc. You can make it cute or realistic, or both, whatever you want. However, you should take some time in to making it, and put some effort into it. Make it something that your partner is going to actually want to keep in their collection. Even if you are a beginner, it is easy to tell wether you tried or not. We should all know that it is not ok to simply cut out a pretty piece of paper and just stamp it or slap a sticker on it. I would rather get an off-center, amateur drawing than something like that.

I will be checking profiles for anyone that seems iffy. If I was not able to weed out all flakers, I will angel. I am allowing newbies, but you should have a couple of sent swaps and a complete profile. I know it can take a while to get those first few ratings.

I think that's it. If you have any questions, please post them in the comments section bellow so that others that might be wondering the same thing could see it as well.

Why isn't this an international swap? It doesnt cost much in postage and would allow everyone to participate!
