This swap has moved from here:
http://www.cricut.com/me...694&mpage=1&key=


The first round (2008) was here:
http://www.cricut.com/me...64&mpage=1&key=?

The second round was here:
http://www.cricut.com/me...eboard/tm.aspx?m=3429686

Third Round was here:
http://www.cricut.com/me...eboard/tm.aspx?m=4111611

The fourth round is here:
http://www.cricut.com/me...392&mpage=1&key=

Each month we will make 10 handmade cards. And of course you are welcome to do more if you choose! You will get back whatever amount you send, but they need to be in groups of 10 please. Please do not include envies unless you are making OTHER then an A2 size. (Aka invitation size..fits a 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock piece cut in half. Measures approx 4 3/8" x 5 3/4") These DO NOT HAVE TO BE IDENTICAL if you don't want them to be!
Please include a large enough envie so if someone makes larger cards then you are sending, they will not get ruined. Please be sure to include Postage NOT METERED POSTAGE!!!!!! This INCLUDES the Self Serve Labels you get at the PO. THEY ARE DATED TOO!!!! Not to be rude, but if I receive metered postage from you this year, I will ask that you send stamps out to me to return the cards to you. I love hosting, and don't mind picking up a little postage here and there, but I will no longer be covering for Metered mail. THE PO WILL NOT ACCEPT THEM!!!!!!! DO not let them tell you otherwise!!! (Some people said last year that the PO told them it was OK. It isn't! My PO will no longer accept them!!!!)
WE ARE STILL TAKING SIGNUPS if you want to join us!!!!The due date will be the last day of each month. First month is due July 31th! We will go for 6 months at a time. If there is interest in going another round, we can do so. If not you can tell me to stop bugging you!! So we will run, from July, until December. We will leave this open to whomever wishes to sign up. It is nice to get a wide variety of cards!!! If for any reason you can't do a month, please let me know. I am pretty easy going, so don't hesitate to let me know!

I DO understand that at times life gets in the way, and that sometimes things will be late. If you are going to be late a month..PLEASE....let me known as soon as possible so I can keep people updated! I don't want people worrying that I am a flakey hostess!!!! Also if you don't want to commit to doing each month. let me know that and you can be a "Jumper" as in you can Jump in when you want!

PLEASE refer to the original post to see if your cards have been recieved. I don't mean disrespect to anyone, however I can't possibly PM each member to let them know when items arrive. If after you sent them and a few days have passed, and I don't post that I have gotten them, then by all means ask!

"New" for 2009 Please if you are making MORE then 10 cards in a given month, that is perfectly fine HOWEVER please limit the number of cards you send in to the number of participants involved!!! ie if there are 25 people involved, please don't send in 30 cards. If you do, you WILL receive the surplus back to you!!!

Just like last round, I have decided to post pictures to a Photobucket account. It took me sooooo long to take pictures, and then post each last round, that I thought this would just be so much easier! I will take the pictures prior to swapping them out, and you can sneak a peek if you wish, or not. I will post the creators name there as well. I will have a separate Album for cards, card fronts, and ATCs.
The original post will be updated as I receive your creations.
Please Sign your creations!!! We got so many beautiful cards last round, and people didn't know who to thank!!!


You may send in more then 1 month at a time. But please label them with month and name of swap. Also please put your name on them. MB AND REAL NAME!!! (if it isn't obvious!)

I will also put you down as a "Jumper" if you wish. As in you can jump in the swap when you are able to!


WHEW! That was a lot of typing! Tired of reading yet????

Send to me at:
Gina Thornton
115 Colonial Drive
Norristown, PA 19401-1804

Also please note, that the absence of a smiley face next to a person's name, does NOT mean they flaked out! They may have contacted me about skipping a month, and I just didn't add a note next to their name!

If you are taking sign ups for the next round I am in. I am not picky about the theme because I always need all kinds of cards.

I would love to do some Easter and St. Pattys Day but I know these might not be all that popular!

Hi --

I'm not on the list for this one but was before the move. I'm finishing my Sept cards today. I will be finishing cards for this round and I'd like to be put on the next list (starting in January).

There are some obvious themes like Valentines in January, etc. I'm not picky -- I'll go along with whatever you want!

Thanks,
Lori

Oh no!!! Sorry Lori! See that is why I wanted folks to check up on me!! I will add you, and I did get your Sept cards!

Valentine's sounds nice, however we may not all need 10 Valentines, let me see if I can tweak it a bit..
