Feedback: 4203 / 0 / 0
Due date: July 17
postage for non-Australians: June 12
I live in Australia - mail will NOT reach me quickly! I suggest you allow at least 4 weeks
cards: all 4 suits of 8s
participants: unlimited
media: any and all but MUST include at least 1 postage stamp with FLOWERS AND/OR TREES on it. Please make sure that you leave the top left corner visible (denomination and suit)


I have LOTS of postage stamps and love using them on my cards so I have decided to run a monthly series of swaps using different topics on the stamps.
short of stamps? Just ask - I have lots on most topics and I am happy to send them to you. If you need some quicker just ask in the thread CynthiaSillitoe has said that she is happy to help those in the US who need stamps.

future topics so you can plan ahead:
August - 7s/ Transport September - 6s/ Land animals October - 5s/ Birds November - 4s/ Places or scenery (including Space) December - 3s/ Christmas January '24 - 2s/ People (lifelike or cartoon) February - Jokers/ Marine

Please include a background for your stamp(s) - it can be an extension of the stamp design or abstract, or something in between. Please make sure that you leave the top left corner visible (denomination and suit). Plain card backgrounds will be returned unswapped.

Post to the thread to sign up or you can't get Rep points.

PM me for my address when you are ready to mail - if you have an address in Robina, I am still there.

Due date:
Cards are to be in my hand by July 17. I will mail your returns as soon as possible but remember, it took up to a month to reach me so your returns may take a month or more to reach you. Please be on time so others don't have to wait.

Australian players: please include a $1.20 stamp
International players: unfortunately Australian international postage is still going up so I must ask for a well hidden US$2 OR a Global Forever stamp.

ALL players please include a LARGE address label (AT LEAST 2" x2"), I will supply envelopes. Please do NOT send those 3-in-a-row sleeves - they do not fit in my envelopes.

1. Do your best work - I plan to swap effort-for-effort as much as I can.

2. Clearly write your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME on the back of all your cards (so you can get fun Rep points) and on the back of your mailing envelope. I am running a few swaps and do not want to put you with the wrong returns.

3. Please mail early to allow time to reach Australia.
4. An extra card for the swap Host is greatly appreciated but is not required.
5. Embellishments are fine. The completed card needs to fit into a standard pocket and the embellishments need to be securely fastened so they don't fall off during shipping. If it is too bulky it is more than likely that the card will ot reach me - either because the envelope has been torn and the card lost, or it is too heavy.

6. I will give iTrader feedback when I receive your cards and will also update this post showing that your cards have been received. In return I encourage you to give iTrader Host feedback to me when you receive your swap returns, and Rep points to the artist whose cards you receive. After all, knowing where your cards went is half the fun I think.

If you're looking for specific stamps for other projects, as well as our atc's and apcs, I'm putting in another plug for my friend on Etsy. Something that is really cool about her is she puts at least a half a dozen stamps on the envelope, so you're not only get what you pay for but extras!
