Description:

This was formerly called "Reusable Card" Swap.

This is a reboot to the original swap hosted by @beachchicken with a few changes. Special thanks to her for allowing me to try and get this going again.

This swap is based on the "traveling" items, postcards, letters, sticker books, pet books, etc where someone starts it off and it keeps going until full and returned home.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND:

Choose a card. NO OVERSIZED CARDS. One that can be mailed with 1 forever stamp. Something like a "Thinking of You" or a "Have a Nice Day" type of card. A card that you think people would enjoy seeing. Try to jazz it up. Some flat embellishments, ribbons, paint, stickers or whatever as long as it is flat and will mail for 1 forever stamp.

On the lower back of the card put: "Please return to: (Your name & address) when full"

IF YOU ARE MAKING A HANDMADE CARD

Please make it sturdy since it will be traveling quite a bit. It must be a standard size. NO OVERSIZE CARDS! We want to be able to mail with just 1 forever stamp. On the lower back of the card add your name, user name, date, round #.

On the lower back of the card put: "Please return to: (Your name & address) when full"

When partners are posted mail the card off to them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF YOU PARTICIPATED IN THE PREVIOUS ROUND(S):

Just add your name, username, city, state date and round # to the card you receive. Put it in an envelope and send it to your partner!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hang on to the card that you receive in each round. We will have another round each month. Sign up when you receive yours from the previous round

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You may get your own card back or one that you have already signed. That's OK, just sign and date again and enjoy seeing where it's been!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My hope for this swap is that when your card is returned home to you, you will be able to see all the places it has traveled to.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF YOU NEED TO DROP OUT OR NO LONGER INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING

PLEASE return the card home to the person it belongs to.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Newbies welcomed, with a well filled out profile. A well filled profile is one I have to scroll down the page to read. (I DO CHECK AND WILL BAN). Because of delivery issues, multi-profiler/flaker concerns, and site policies I require real names. If you join a swap of mine with a fake name or no last name, you will be asked to fix it.

No recent/unexplained low ratings - This means message me with an explanation why you have a 1 or 3. PLEASE check out my profile page and read the "About Swaps I Host" section for an in-depth explanation of my swap rules.

Also ~ I live in "Boonyville" Michigan and sometimes our internet connection isn't very good. This is especially true when it rains & in the winter months. I have been told that swap hosts have 7 days after the sign up date to assign partners. So please be patient, partners will get assigned and if needed I will extend the send date.

If you know of a bad swapper signed up for this swap, I appreciate being informed, but please DO NOT post to the comment section! Send me a PM and I will deal with it that way. Any questions, just ask.

Is there an interest in making this an international swap?

@institches No, thank you. Int’l mail is too unpredictable right now, and if I participate, I’d really like to get my card back within a reasonable amount of time.

Thanks for asking!
