I love sacred hearts. A Google image search can help you figure out what this is if you are unsure. I like making sacred hearts that aren't so literal or so religious per se. The graphic above is an interpretation I did of an alternative sacred heart using collaged paper, glitter, paint pens, a tree-shaped punch, star-shaped brads, magazine cutouts and a piece of a mesh bag I found. Typical elements of sacred hearts are the heart, flames and thorns.

Make one artist trading card that goes outside the bounds of the traditional sacred heart. Make this heart something that is creative and different, although still recognizable as having the above three elements. Please make your cards artistic, and not just stick-ons and print-outs. Merely attaching craft store stick-ons or stamping a rubber stamp on paper is not enough to get a good rating. Use embellishments or hand-draw or paint. Mixed media appreciated. Card must be standard ATC size and mailed on time. Failure to comply may result in bad ratings.

International. Sender's choice. No ratings below a 4.8. No suspicious ratings or no sends. Newbies must have a completely filled out profile before the day I assign partners. You must not be late on any swaps you are currently doing. Swappers not meeting the above will be automatically banned, but feel free to start your own swaps.

Questions? Please PM me.
