♥ This is for everyone who loves the low postage fee of postcards, but also likes getting a bit creative now and then. It is the first of a series of swaps for Handmade Postcards. Each so often, we will have a different colour scheme.

♥ This time the theme is pink ! Yay ! I've made it pink because the send by date is going to be in October, which is Breast Cancer Month, so let's honour the incredible survivors. You don't have to do the theme according to breast cancer, just pink is fine. You may use other colours, but it must be obvious to see that the main colour here is pink.

♥ You will be given 2 weeks after partners are assigned to make one postcard for 2 different partners. That's 2 handmade postcards in total. You will make your postcards however you like, as long as you keep with the theme (Pink). It is sender's choice, but it's always nice to check your partner's likes and dislikes before sending off. Make something you'd be proud to put your name on.

♥ Please ensure that your postcard is made on cardboard hard enough to not be damaged when it's on its travels around the world. You can place your paper over an ad postcard. Another nice idea is to cover the front of the postcard with contact plastic (as long as you don't make bubbles). This protects the postcard very well

♥ The postcards are to be naked (not you !), that is, without an envelope and written on. It's always nice to write something more than just "hi" and "bye". Don't ruin a beautiful postcard with rubbish written on it. If you know that you have bad handwriting, you can always type the message on the back.

♥ Because the cards are being sent naked, it's difficult to send extras. Make sure that you make something that is worth hearts

♥ Usual rules... Newbies are WELCOME, no recent 1s or 3s without explanation, no swaplifters... if I fail to ban a flaker, I will angel this swap for you [just let me know]

♥ Questions ? Mail me !

Great idea! Though pink isn't my thing so I'll wait and see what the next colour scheme is - if there's any possible way you could notify me (eg. message on my profile) when you start the next one that would be very much appreciated :)
