I will sign up.  It has been a long time since we did a swap!  Thank you for organizing! #>

So, the card can be one written out to the recipient, not so that the recipient can use it again, right?

Yankee and Connie so glad you signed on to this swap!

Connie I think this swap is a great swap for a first-timer since it only asks for 1 card and you mail to 1 person.   The only thing I can think of that might not be clear is that you need to contact the person that posted before you (Yankee) to ask for her address.  The important thing is to have fun!

I'm in! Having to mail to someone makes sure I will participate, LOL

I have been lazy on card making lately.

The only think I can think of is not to forget to photograph your card before you send it. :)

I suppose you mean that we post the card to the gallery that WE receive in the mail from our swap buddy?

April said: "I suppose you mean that we post the card to the gallery that WE receive in the mail from our swap buddy? " Thanks so much April for asking this question!  Sorry my original description was not clear enough because your above statement is not what I meant. Please let me try again.

I am asking each player to take a of picture of the card they made before putting it in the mail.  Then wait until your recipient posts on this discussion thread that they have received your card. Then the maker of the card will post the picture in the AI gallery. This way you have the photo of your card to keep for your photo collection and your recipient will be surprised when they open their mail. And of course this will allow all of us to share some gallery applause for each player's work.

I am going to edit my original post to clarify the statement about photos.

Please speak up if there are any other questions.
Hope everyone finds some fun creative moments in the next 2 weeks to make their card!
Thanks!...Jan

I just received the most cheerful spring card from Yankee!  Thank you so much!  We have had a little bit of a rough time the last 24 hours and this was the most fun thing to get in the mail today!

I will be so happy when Sheila shares this card in the gallery!  Inside and out, if she has it!
