Wouldn't it be great to send a postcard and see where it had been all around the world? Then get it returned back to you after its adventures were over? Let's do it!


Choose a card. A card that you think people would enjoy seeing (however, PLEASE DO NOT USE EXTRA LARGE POSTCARDS THAT WILL REQUIRE EXTRA POSTAGE!). Put your name and address (including the country!) on the right hand side of the card. Put the title of the swap ("Adventures of the Traveling Postcard") and your screen name at the top of the left hand side. PUT IT IN AN ENVELOPE and send it off to your partner. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Just write your name, username, city, state/country, on the left hand side of the postcard you received in the previous round. Put it in an envelope and send it to your partner! (DO NOT WRITE YOUR ENTIRE ADDRESS ON THE POSTCARD - THIS TAKES UP TOO MUCH SPACE!)


Hang on to the postcard(s) that you receive in each round. We will have another round as soon as everyone has clicked "Sent" in the previous round. (Sign up when you receive yours from the previous round, start another one in rotation, or contact me, as I may have a postcard that needs to be put back into rotation as well!) When the left side of the postcard is filled up with the names and cities of those that have received the postcard, the last person will stamp your actual postcard and send it back to you.

Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps completed) and I will ban if I feel that you may be a questionable swapper. I want to do my best to ensure that everyone receives their postcards back. Thanks and happy swapping!

Please don't send more than 3 cards per round.

NOTE: Do NOT send the postcard back to the original owner until the left side of the postcard is completely filled unless instructed otherwise. CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT SENDING YOUR PARTNER'S CARD BACK TO THEM AS PART OF THE SWAP ROUND YOU'RE ON.

ALSO: Do not destroy, bend, write on the front of, or ANYTHING else that destroys the integrity of the postcard. Treat the postcard how you would want yours treated.

Additionally: If you decide to stop the swap, please contact me so you can send your received cards to me and I can keep them in the rotation.

The card that I got in the mail last time around belonged to Sarala K. In Chicago. It was full so I sent it home. ^_^ I literally JUST put a card into circulation, and I don't really feel like I need another... If anyone has extras, is near enough to me before the swap starts, and would like to forward me one or two I will gladly pass them on... otherwise I'll just start another of my own.

As I am on holiday from July 11 til August 1, I will skip this round, sorry!

@Phish that would haved worked out great for me as I have four to pass on :) But we have a postal strike right now and it's not clear when it will end so the cards might not reach you before the sign-up date. Hopefully it will be over before I have to send out.

I have cards for @tatntole - @kacka - Sarah Coller - Betty Maxwell.

Johanna51 07/ 6/2015 #

This round I'll pass on the PC of Lisa Morris @LisaLisa3

lorettadog 07/ 7/2015 #

If you have my card, will you send it home to me? I'm no longer participating, so there's no point in hanging on to it!

Karen2013 07/ 7/2015 #

I have ended up with about 6 or 7 cards to pass along? Can I have two or three partners this round so they don't all go the same way?? thanks

CindyST 07/ 7/2015 #

I have 4 cards to pass on. Theresa Mather, @Mimi7 Tania Neirinckx and @littleaquila

lostinavalon 07/ 8/2015 #

@Karen2013 : I'm sorry but the swapbot system will only assign you one partner per round. However, you're more than welcome to send your extras to me and I'll put them in the rotation, if you'd like. You may PM me for my mailing address.

NatashaMay 07/ 9/2015 #

I've sent one home from the previous round and if anyone has extras, please send them my way. I'm in Europe.

@kim91262 ...I have your "600 Inland Seas" donors card. I love it! It started R36 and still has room for some more signers.

eepy 07/11/2015 #

This sounds like so much fun, I have to get in on it! And I have a fantastic card that everyone will enjoy seeing!

ZzMonstruozZ 07/13/2015 #

Cindy Scott-Turner! your postcard is almost full! =)

StarMouse 07/13/2015 #

I was in s similar swap last year. Then I broke my foot and ankle, and was in bed for months. I'm still not walking more than a few steps, but found a traveling postcard on my art table. I'd like to join this swap and forward that card. Hope this is okay.

ElaCaiu 07/14/2015 #

I have cards belonging to @Flowerchild and @ToshaV that I will be sending along.

lostinavalon 07/14/2015 #

That's fine, @StarMouse Just keep in mind that your partner will be sending you another one. If you're just wanting to move the card along without receiving another one back, you can PM me for my address and I'll put it in the next round.

flowerchild 07/15/2015 #

so happy one of my PC's is still traveling! Thank you @ElaCaiu for keeping it safe :) This round I will be passing on @joyceann888 round 43 card.

SoulKissed 07/15/2015 #

I have 3 from the previous swap. So glad you are reviving this swap.

3rinn 07/16/2015 #

This swap is so awesome! I know you are only excepting well established swappers. And I know know I'm still a "newbie". But please consider me to join this swap!! I am a member of postcrossing and iuoma. I am not a flake and always honor my word. I would love to to participate in this swap. :)
