Spring Exchange 2014
« on: April 07, 2014, 09:18:05 PM »
As Schin pointed out, flowers are a-blooming and it's time for a new exchange! On this side of the globe, spring is just beginning. For those heading into winter - this may help perpetuate the sunshine!

Spring Exchange - any design focusing on spring - flowers, trees, bunnies, chicks, spring colors, green - you decide!

Sign up deadline: Friday, April 18, 2014.

Mail deadline: Wednesday, May 14, 2014.

Email your full name and mailing address to [email protected].

Guidelines:

1. Although the cards do not have to be handmade, some kind of calligraphy should be used on either card or envelope.
2. You will send a card to every member on the list (if a large group signs up, I will break the list down into smaller groups).
3. Spring related theme.
4. All skill levels welcome!

I just want all of you to know my exchange may have failed... I took a gamble with what I mailed and let's just say - the odds are never in my favor. I always send one to myself and it arrived pretty mangled with some serious track marks.  >:( :'( I hope every ones arrive.

I mailed them Saturday so US people should expect it by Friday. Other countries some time in the next two weeks.

If you don't receive it by May 26th, please let me know.  :o

I absolutely love that Roseanne and Joi sent the same white on green but in different sizes and Joi and Natascha did the same quote! Just shows that great minds think alike!  ;D

I think it was  Lori and me who did the "Spring is nature's way ..."-quote :D and Lori and Mary both did the "Spring has sprung" one.  ;)

LOL! Thank you Natascha - you are correct - it was you and Lori who did the, "Spring is nature's way" quote. But you did the same thing I did!  ;D I haven't received Mary's yet but it was Nickki that did the Spring has sprung, not Lori.  ;D

Few - must be spring fever for the both of us!  ;D

So true -- we Americans love those!

I have had the best time doing this. It's so inspiring and instructive for a newbie like me to see all the different styles and majiscules. I'll probably leave the cards out for inspiration until the next exchange. I have the cards downstairs and the envelopes upstairs.  :)

And Erica -- your post card came through just fine without any damage. What a good idea to mail one to yourself, though, to see how the ink holds up, etc.
