Let's make two (2) collaged 3" x 3" ink box cards for one (1) partner in an "April Showers" theme -- but with a twist!

Create your two ink box cards with:

βž– an "April" theme
βž– a "showers" theme
βž– an "April Showers" theme
βž– or some combination of the above

You are free to interpret the "April showers" theme as you wish. Light or dark, the interpretation is yours! It might be nice to include a note for your swap partner to share your unique inspiration, especially if it's not obvious. Here are just a few ways you might wish to interpret the "April showers" theme:

β€’ "Enchanted APRIL" is a gorgeous 1991 film about English women on holiday in the Italian Riviera. Your ink box cards might feature women on holiday; the Italian Riviera; or a girl-power theme.
β€’ APRIL SHOWERS are the drizzly rains of spring. You could feature spring weather on your cards, or focus on how pretty raindrops look in the spring sun.
β€’ SHOWERS are how many of us begin or end our days. How about some ink box cards featuring retro images of soap?

After partners are assigned, you'll have two weeks to complete your work before the mail-by date, which is the last day of the month. This is not a profile-based swap, so you can dive in to creating right away!


Please visit the main group page for a quick refresher on size, collage, construction, and mailing requirements that apply to all group swaps.

It's my heartfelt wish that participants in my swaps have a happy and rewarding experience, because I want them to come back for more! That's why I'll cheerfully angel this swap with my own best work for any participant who has:

β€’ Waited a reasonable amount of time for a swap return to arrive
β€’ Messaged his/her swap partner, to no avail (partner doesn't respond and/or promised "resend" never arrives)
β€’ Rated his/her partner "1" for the swap
β€’ Commented in the rating box that nothing was received/swapper is non-responsive/"resend" never arrived (whatever applies)


Please share any thoughts and questions about this swap below, and I'll do my best to answer.

Enjoy! Best work only, always! And thank you for joining my swap!
