Time for a quick notecard swap. You're going to have 2 partners.

1) Go to your notecardstash. Pull out 4 notecards, with envelopes.

2) Grab 2 larger envelopes.

3) Grab 2 slips of paper, write the swap name “Quick Notecard Swap #4 – USA” and your Swap Bot ID on each slip

4) Put 2 notecards in each envelope, along with their envelopes, and one of the slips of paper. Seal the envelope, and slap a first class postage stamp on it.

5) Wait until partners are assigned. Then, address your envelope and send it off!

If this swap looks familiar, it's because it's done in a similar fashion to the anonymous tea trades @toupti does. I thought it would be fun to do a similar thing, but with items other than tea.

Swap deadline and send off dates are close together because these envelopes should be ready to go well in advance.

Rules: Your notecards need to be two different cards per envelope. If you have multiples, you can make your envelopes the same, because really, who's going to know you sent the same thing twice?

Notecards should be in good shape. Dirty, badly damaged, mangled cards don't belong here. Handmade, Zazzle, Vistaprint, and other "you make it, we'll print for you" types are allowed, but they need to be of good quality. If you wouldn't be happy recieving them, don't send them out.

4.9 or higher rating, newbies allowed. If you have more than one of either a 1 or a 3 rating in the last 6 months, I reserve the right to remove you from the swap. The same goes if you have swaps on your dashboard that are past send by date.

If you are a newbie, you must fill out your profile. I don't expect a novel, or for you to fill in everything (your favorite movie tells me nothing). But, I do expect information about you, and some likes and dislikes. One paragraph is not enough, you will be removed. Most of the recent flakers in my swaps have been newbies, if this continues I will not allow newbies to participate.

If you receive an envelope from a swapper and you don't feel it meets the requirements of the swap, please contact me.

Anyone who fails to meet the requirements of the swap, or flakes, will be banned from all my future swaps. I will angel anyone who gets flaked on.

I like these Quick Swaps. You don't need to put much thought into them.

That's why I like them. And to be honest, I kind of like the luck of the draw idea, you never know what you're going to get.

Some people do wait until partners are assigned, and try and match cards up with their partner's profiles, and that's cool too.
