SWEET! A Valentine’s Day One-for-One Card Swap

Val Day One for One

I can feel the anticipation growing, so I know it’s time for another One-for-One card swap! After I displayed the cards from my last two swaps, you told me you wished you had participated and you promised to participate in the next one. Now’s your chance to make good on that promise. 🙂

Today, I am announcing my Sweet Valentine One-for-One Card Swap.  It’s simple.  Send a beautiful Valentine’s Day card, receive a beautfiul Valentine’s Day card in return.

Here’s how it works:

You mail the following to me:

  • a handmade card (a standard 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card). Please make every effort to use products from the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs. 
  • a self-addressed, stamped envelope (just fold one in half and include it with your card).
  • a little information for me if you want to share: your name, your email address, your level of interest in stamping (are you a light hobbyist, a serious hobbyist or a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator?), and your website address (if you have one). I will share your name and city/state on my blog and with the person who receives your card. The other information WILL NOT be shared with anyone else. I just want to get to know you better.

Please don’t write on the inside of your card so that the recipient can use it (if they choose to).  I will gather the cards I receive and will mix them up and mail them out so that everyone who sent me a card will receive a card in return. As long as I receive a card from you by the deadline, then you will receive another card in return.  Oh, glorious day!

I know this is going to break your heart, but I will have to limit this to two cards per person (if you choose to make more than one).   It just makes it easier for me to sort through them and distribute them back out.  Thanks for understanding.  Also, please make sure you include a return envelope for each card you send.

Mail your card and return envelope to:

Brian King

1758 Colt Drive

Atlanta, GA 30341

Please mail them as soon as you can – but make sure they arrive by Thursday, January 31. That will give me time to gather them, sort them and then mail them out in time for Valentine’s Day. I will also include photos of the cards on my blog (giving proper credit to the creator, of course). Sorry, but this swap is only open to folks with an address in the U.S. or Canada.

Who’s in? Email me if you have any questions. stampwithbrian@gmail.com

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Brian

It’s not too late! You’ve seen the gorgeous papers and accessories in the catalog, but it’s not too late to join in one of my product shares. Get your hands on a wide selection of the items in the catalog and still save up for your January 22 purchases (during Sale-a-Bration, you get more “bang” for your “buck”).

Of course, seeing our cards in your blog is part of the lure, my dear and knowing our cards will travel all over the Country is super fabulous. Thank you again for letting us participate, we all know how hard you work to sort and mail all of this cards to us. You are a great host.
