Number of swap partners:2

For this swap you are to create one atc for 2 partners. Please read the instructions completely and make sure you understand them before signing up.

Each atc must represent a song title, but the catch is that you cannot use the actual words of the title on your atc's. You can however use a line from the song, as long as it is not the title line. Your two atc's must also be from different artists. You cannot name your atc as the song title.

Now here's the cool part...to get a heart for your atc, your partner must be able to guess the song title correctly. Otherwise a 5 rating is all you get for completing the swap to normal guidelines. So include with your atc a small envelope with the song title inside, sealed, and when you receive your swap, do your best to guess the title before resorting to opening the answer envelope. It's completely up to you how difficult you want to make it for your partner to guess the song title, but you want the heart, right?

So here are the guidelines...your atc must be regulation size of 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. It must be sent in a protective sleeve or bag to guard against damage by weather in transit. Please make an effort to be artistic, these are after all 'artist trading cards' and not 'craftist' or 'sticker slappers' trading cards...put some thought into it and show us the true artist inside. Make sure you meet the posting deadline, and don't join if you want to decide later that it's all too hard and you want to flake. I will name and shame flakers. I reserve the right to ban anyone from this swap whom I believe may not meet the swap requirements. I will angel if need be after you give the flaker a 1 rating.

I love this idea! I just looked over the songs on my iPad and there are so many possibilities! I hope it isn't fear of not getting a heart that is scaring people away from the swap.

Someone's just got me wondering if I've done this correctly; I've sent 1 ATC to 2 partners but different songs. Is that right?

Nannabakes 04/12/2013 #

Susie you are correct, and your atc from me is on it's way :)

Lizard, you can make a small envelope from a square of paper, and it doesn't even have to be traditional envelope shaped :)

Phew! Thank you for clarifying, nan snakes, and I look forward to receiving yours.

Oops, that should have said "nannabakes"! Stupid iPad.

@SusieQ I can appreciate that! Yesterday, instead of Jamaica, my iPad typed al Quaeda!
