If you are doing the card swap, please make 30 cards. If for any reason more than 30 people sign up for the card swap, you'll be the first to know.
However, 30 cards should definitely be sufficient. In fact, you may have a couple extra cards as leftovers which is a nice bonus.
Also, if you haven't signed up for the card swap, please do so. You will get a bunch of really nice cards. A little bird told me that some people looked back on the previous cards from the previous card swaps on this blog and were concerned that their cards wouldn't be "good enough". Don't think like that! Simple cards, complicated cards, feminine cards, masculine cards, kids cards or any other types of cards are welcome. I make simple cards for people I know wouldn't like busy cards. For instance, my sympathy cards are always simple with no embellishments.
Please join us. You will love the swap.
Here is a re-cap of the rules:
We have definitely eased-up on the rules. Make the cards any way you want to make them. If they aren't identical, that's OK...just keep the style of card the same.
Also, please don't write your personal message inside the card because people may want to send your card to one of her/his loved ones. Please print your name (and any other info you feel comfortable indicating such as an email address) on a post-it-note and attach it to the back of your card. This way the card swap recipient will know who made which card.
You don't need to include an envelope with your card but it is a nice touch.
Last but not least, yes, your card will be posted here on the blog as long as I remember not to mail it to one of buddies, like I did last time. Yikes!
