I love all of the "fancy" stamps that the USPS puts out. Winter time especially brings all sorts of fun stamps. Have you see the new ones based on the Ezra Jack Keats book "The Snowy Day"? I have, and I love them.

So, for this swap, you will make a post card in the theme of "The Snowy Day" and send it with a "The Snowy Day" stamps from the post office. This can be sent traditional style (stamp on the back) or "maxi" style (stamp on the front) if that is your partners preference.

For the post card, make sure that it has the feel of the book (and stamp) which is a little boy in a red snowsuit playing in the snow. You can draw, collage, cut and past, use a found image, what have you. This is a type "3" so there should be thought put into making it.

Post cards should be sent naked (so that we can see the card and the stamp) and as stated above, can be sent with the stamp on the back or on the front, check to see if your partner is ok with Maxi postcards before sending that way.

You should have a 4.9 or higher. No newbies for this swap. No recent unexplained 1's or 3's or 1's due to active swapers. I will angel this swap if needed. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to PM me or to leave a comment.

I am setting with a week to sign up and just over two weeks to send. This swap will be USA only because of the specific stamp required to be used to send the card. I will be hosting a generic seasonal stamp swap internationally as well.
