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

Create your two ink box cards with:

➖ a "May" theme
➖ a "flower" theme
➖ a "May flower" or "Mayflower" theme
➖ or some combination of the above

You are free to interpret the "May flower" 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 "May Flower" theme:

• "Mother MAY I" is a children's playground game. You could feature children's games in your cards, or feature images of playgrounds.
• The birth FLOWER for MAY is Lily of the Valley, which suggests a beautiful palette with fresh shades of green and white.
• A FLOWER of any kind always makes a beautiful focal element.
• The MAYFLOWER was an English ship that transported pilgrims to the New World back in 1620. You might theme your cards around New England, where the ship landed, or perhaps around Colonial America more generally.

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!

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:

• Waited a reasonable amount of time for a swap return to arrive
• Messaged his/her swap partner, to no avail (partner doesn't respond and/or promised "resend" never arrives)
• Rated his/her partner "1" for the swap
• 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!
