THANKS MUCH!
CJ


11/26/17: Signups for this swap are now closed.
SWAPPERS: There is a total of NINE swappers signed up, which would include yourself. You will need to make EIGHT cards to send out.
I'll get the mailing list emailed to you in the next couple of days.
Thanks much!
CJ

Hi Farmgirls,
Several of us have had a lot of fun with the annual POSTCARD swap each summer for several years and last Christmas some of the participants had requested that we do a Christmas Postcard swap using recycled Christmas cards. I thought we'd try one again this year.

So, the idea is to make your postcards from old Christmas cards, following the USPS guidelines for size. At least 3 1/2 x 5 inches and no larger than 4 1/4 x 6 inches. You can finish them, embellish them in any manner you like. SUGGESTION: If you embellish, I would suggest mailing them in an envelope.

Because it is for Christmas and we all get pretty busy this will be *limited to TWELVE postcard swappers*. That is so that you'll not be too overwhelmed with making the postcards, as you will send ONE POSTCARD TO EACH PARTICIPANT.

-

- SIGNUPS are NOW OPEN, will close on NOVEMBER 26th.
- PLEASE EMAIL ME YOUR:
- "Real" name
- forum name
- mailing address
- email address

I will compile a mailing list and email it to all of you.

MAILOUT DEADLINE IS: DECEMBER 7th. Start now so you'll be ready BEFORE the deadline.

*SPECIAL NOTE: Being able to make the cards and mail to ALL participants is important for swap follow through.

Let's send each other some Christmas cheer!
CJ

Ok, I would like to give it a try! I think it sounds fun, but am concerned that I wonít be nearly as creative and crafty as the rest of you. I will do my best, though.

Hi Beverly,
Don't be concerned about being crafty or creative. It can be just using a part of a Christmas card for a postcard. I'll sign you up.

I do need your mailing information, please.
Thanks!

Thanks CJ for your "Merry Christmas" postcard that arrived today. Loved the clever
"To and From" gift tag sticker you used!

Thanks also to Marlene for the "ice-skates" postcard and loved the rubber stamp greeting
you used on it.

I received a delightful vintage style hand crafted postcard from Marilyn. I love it!
Even a cute little red polka dot bow and some marshmallow toasting snowmen. Love the
creativity and thanks also for the tea, in 30's here last night so I'll be sipping your tea
tonight.

And I got to really nice card from Marylin, and I got a cute little card from Linda and Beverly and Terry. Thanks sisters you'll all be getting mine soon. It makes the holidays seem more special and warm feeling when you receive cards in the mail from friends. Hugs Karla
