Arrow Spring 2017 card kit swap!!!

Do you think it's time for a new CARD KIT swap? I do - Penny first introduced this one years ago, and we've had a few different kinds over the years, but it's been a while since we did one of these...I've taken the instructions from the last one and modified slightly for this go-round!

Here is the partner list for the swap; as always, first on list sends to next; last on list sends to first.
Remember to not post a pic of your card in this thread until your partner posts a picture of the card they made from your kit. Each person will end up with 2 completed cards, one from your own kit and one from your partner's kit.

The theme for this kit swap is:
HUGS & PRAYERS / THINKING OF YOU

Sign-ups are now open in this thread until APRIL 15. DO NOT send a message to Swaps Albums, please post below if you want to play. Unlike most swaps where we need 5 to play, for this one we need a minimum of 6.

And depending on how many sign up, we might be able to allow sign-ups for more than one kit so indicate if you want to do more than one or not. (Remember though, you will do TWO cards for each sign-up!)

The recipe for the kits is basically the same as always, with ONE added requirement: Using parts or all of whatever is leftover from the kit you receive, you must add some decoration to the inside of the card.

You will make up TWO identical card kits; one for you, and one to send to your swap partner.

The ingredients for each card recipe:

Do not forget the theme for this swap and the additional requirement for your cards listed above.

*ONE 5 x 6 1/2 card blank and envelope (these can be hand made if you do not have them in your stash).

*TWO different papers 5 x 6 1/2 Can be single or double sided

*ONE paper 5x5 Can be single or double sided

*ONE focal point - this can be a die cut, stamped image, sentiment, flower, etc. If it is something provided on paper such as a stamped image or sentiment, leave enough room around it for partner to cut out as they choose. Focal point can be a stamped image and sentiment from the same set.

*18" of ONE ribbon/fiber 1 piece only, do not send choices

*FOUR small embellishments such as Dazzles, buttons, etc. Partner is not required to use all 4 but must use at least 1 in their design. Note: Jewel Dazzles, Jewel Heart and Jewel Flower Dazzles - 3 of them count as 1 embellishment (used the rule of 3 to decide). Jewel Border Dazzles are 1 for 1.

A WORD ABOUT GENEROSITY AND THIS SWAP: You all are the most generous swappers we know! When you see "send ribbon", some send 3 kinds, or 4 embellishments turn into 6 or 8. While RAK is a terrific thing, it really doesn't work for this swap. Please send only the listed items and no more.

Again - you will make up 2 identical kits, one for you and one to mail to your partner. Everyone will send a kit and receive a kit and make 2 cards (one from the kit you made up and sent a duplicate of to your partner, one from the kit you receive from your partner).

For the kit you RECEIVE from your partner, make your card and post your picture here; be sure to indicate who you got the kit from in your post! Once you've posted your picture, your partner then posts the picture of the card they did from the duplicate of the kit they sent you...which means: For the kit you SEND to your partner, you wait until your partner has posted their completed card before you post yours.

The fun thing in this swap is to see the totally different cards made from the same supplies. I agree with what Penny posted on the last swap: "I know I look at what I have to work with and think what I end up with is all that was there to create and then my partner has something equally awesome."

Any questions, post them here.

Sign-ups end April 15.
Partners listed April 17.
Kits mailed out by April 30.
Completed cards posted by May 31.
