    Each card should include an envelope into which it will fit. You may want to embellish your envelope as well, but this is not a requirement. Please use your discretion and send items that you would use!

    Packaging Instructions:
    Please put each card into its own individual Ziploc baggie with a label with your name on it. If you choose not use a Ziploc baggie, please sign the back of your card so we know who made what. You’ll have 4 bags to enclose in a larger (gallon or quart size) Ziploc bag. - be sure to include your name and your DIS name on your larger baggie.

    • You may send to me by any method you choose unless you are mailing after October 9th. Then you must mail Priority WITH Delivery Confirmation.
    • I prefer to send to you using flat rate boxes/envelopes. Please include enough postage in your package for return shipping. The rates are: Flat Rate Envelope -$5.15, Small Box - $5.35, Medium/Standard box - $11.35, Large Box - $15.45. I will be using Click-n-Ship to print postage online, so delivery confirmation will be free for those of you who use priority shipping. Any and all change will be returned.
    • Please include something with your mailing address on it for me to use to return your items to you.
    • DO NOT include clik-it/ship-it postage. I will not be able to use it since it is only good on the day it was printed, and from the location it was printed.
    I hope you have lots of fun in this swap.

    My new favorite place to find Card Sketches is Card Positioning Systems. There is a whole gallery of previous card sketches here, Sketches, but the website has the sketches with samples made.

    PageMaps also has some card maps, here, and Splitcoast Stampers also does challenges with Card Sketches. You'll need to be a member to view these, but here's a link. Card Sketch Challenge Master Thread

    I might join this time... I am really getting into making cards. I love what all the ladies have created in the past!

    They're even better in person ;) Love to have you join!

    My friend Valerie is also interested. I think I'll have sign-ups next week. Probably Wednesday. Due date around mid-October? That will give us time to get Christmas cards back.

    Do you think there is enough interest to have the sympathy cards have their own group? I know I go thru alot of them these days... DH and I have hit "that certain age" when parents of friends and passing much more frequently... it's sad to say, but I love sending a handmade card, and they are so appreciated.... Honestly I would join 2 of those groups...

    Just a thought...

    since we will be gone for sign-ups could I send you my list Jennifer?

    We can try, Deb. I need to be better about sending the sympathy cards, so having a stash on hand may help.

    Of course! Or even just post it here, I don't see there being a mad rush to sign up, and we can always make groups of 5 or 6 if needed.

    I too could use sympathy cards, as well as get well cards. I would sign up for that group if it was listed separately from the others.

    thanks, I will look over the list and let you know!

    I'm happy to add a sympathy group. (Something off about that sentence).

    I'll do it tomorrow, on my phone now and not sure about editing posts!

    mouseaddicts WDW - Here we come .... again!!! :)

    This is a GREAT insprational swap for me!! I've been soooo slack at making cards! :headache: I REALLY need to get better and y'all are the perfect group to inspire me to be creative!!! :grouphug:

    I have an excellent Sympathy stamp that makes a beautiful card. I have some birthday stamps too ...... and Christmas!!! Oooohhhhh ... would we get them back in time for Halloween??? Okay, I need to slowwww down...... :rotfl:

    I also have a friend that might be interested in joining. I can check with her. She would be new, so how many groups would she be able to do? She is an "Expert" card maker - much better than me! :rolleyes1
  16. morgansmom2000

    morgansmom2000 New Member

    Sure, she can join. Since these are quick and easy, I don't really have a set number that she could join.

    As for Halloween, I can add a group...(I love Halloween myself ;) )

    Hi - I'd love to join a card swap (I haven't swapped in a while but anyone who was around when I did can vouch for my timeliness and work :) ) I stopped swapping to catch up on books with three file boxes of swap stuff :)

    I do a lot more cardmaking these days so I'd LOVE to join!

    I'm definitely interested...

    And I agree with a sympathy card group - we are going through them quite frequently as well.

    Welcome back! I'd love to have you and your new Halloween stamps :lmao:

    Hi Cheryl, I was going to PM you today!

    mouseaddicts WDW - Here we come .... again!!! :)

    Looks like that Halloween idea might pan out after all ........ :rotfl:

    I presume you'll share requirements, etc. with us .......? :confused3 I've never done a card swap before so I want to make sure I have the right ideas in mind before I get too deep.
