A Very Merry Christmas Card Swap

I like sending and receiving a lot of Christmas cards so even though there are already a few card swaps listed, I thought I would start a swap of my own. Mine will be fun and very,merry simple.

All you have to do is send your partners a nice store bought or a nice handmade Christmas card, one that says Merry Christmas, Signed by you.

Be sure to include a separate note telling your partner your Swap-bot ID and what swap this is for.

So that is 1 card each to 10 partners. Sound good?

Is 10 too many? Let me know.

I did think about 20 but maybe that would be too many for newbies. I think I will do a round 2...

A Few Rules:

Swap is USA only. Sorry but my budget, like many others I know is limited and international stamps cost .98 cents each.

Swap is open to Newbies with a filled out profile and anyone else with a 4.8 or higher rating

Please Note:

I will be checking profiles before partners are assigned to make sure you don't have any recent 1's or no-sends. I don't need any


aka FLAKERS to spoil the Christmas spirit.

I am only human so in the event that a Grinch/FLAKER does get by me, I will happily Angel this swap.

Any questions or suggestions, please message me.

JUST a really quick note for my Partners: I will be doing this for my Sister [see profile]. She is mentally challenged and would love to get Mail in her name. Especially Holiday mail. Pleast contact me to send directly to her or if you forget, I'll be sure to get them to her. Her name is Jennifer.

I would love to send Jennifer Holiday mail. I hope it puts a smile on her face and warmth in her heart. I will look at your profle for address. Blessings, Debbie

I am excited to join. My only wish is that I can hand-make the Christmas cards? I have been crafting for many years now and hope that this is acceptable?

ArizonianbutmissesMichigan 11/25/2009 #

1Scrapper the description says store bought. I too make cards and would join if I was able to make them. :)

amyduff 11/25/2009 #

Ditto on the make the cards. I have been making cards for 8 years now so would love to join if we can handmake.

worldtraveler 11/25/2009 #

a hand made card would be fine with me!!! i would love it. if any of you hand made card crafters want to do a private swap i'd love to!!

shabbygirl 11/27/2009 #

to: Momwithahook, I am a newbie, I cannot find Jennifer's address. Please help me. In fact, where do I go to get all other addresses for me to send my Christmas Greeting Cards. Happy Holidays, I look forward to your reply. Debbie

Hi everyone! Thanks for looking at this swap. I see the comments about a few of you wanting to join if you could make a handmade card...Does anyone have any objections to this? As of right now there are 43 people signed up and 38 watching. I will send out an e-mail and I will let you know what the responses are. If no one objects, I will be glad to add handmade to the description. Again, thanks for your suggestions.

LongVacation 11/27/2009 #

I'm fine with either.

dstny2001 11/27/2009 #

I like homemade cards. I just haven't figured out how to make them myself yet. I have no objections

Jenann82 11/27/2009 #

OK, I am going to add that the cards can be handmade as well. I am sure this doesn't need to be said but if you do send a handmade card, please send something that you yourself would like to receive. I hope this works for everyone involved. :)

Jenann82 11/28/2009 #

This is to the Newbies who have joined in the swap...please fill out your profile so your partners can learn a little about you. It is also a requirement to be able to participate in this swap. Thanks!

atinagrace 11/28/2009 #

Yes, I, too, would love to send Jennifer a card..This sounds like a great swap

evieroz 11/28/2009 #

I have store bought Christmas cards but they don't exactly say "Merry Christmas" on them. Will they be allright?

Denise 11/29/2009 #

I am doing this for my daughter. She just moved into her first apartment and is looking forward to getting Christmas cards. Please PM me for her name and address. This will will be a surprise for her so please let her know you are from swapbot and who you are so I can rate as soon as she recieves. Thank you!

Jenann82 11/29/2009 #

@evieroz Hi, The cards do have to say Merry Christmas on them. :)

shabbygirl 11/30/2009 #

Good Morning!! I am a newbie, how do I find the mailing addresses, I am so anxious to start swapping. I am happy to send out cards to everyone on the list, am I correct in assuming that is what we do? I see in Denise's comments (please PM me), can someone explain, is that how I get the mailing address? Everyone -- thanks for your help and Have a wonderful and safe day!!!!!...........Debbie

YellowMiata 12/ 2/2009 #

Hi Shabby girl, I am a newbie too, and I didnt see the names either until today. Maybe I just didnt know where to look for them. They are at the top on the right hand side under where it says : Find Swaps, Groups, forums... there is a box under neath that ( on mine it is in a lighter color ) it will say Swap Member Options .. a couple lines under it, you will see, " See the Partners you send to ". I hope this helps, and I cant wait to see all the cards !!! Sandra

slamophile 12/ 3/2009 #

Apologies to my partners -

After I sealed the envelopes, I realized that I enclosed the wrong information note, so, I had to re-open the envelopes.

So, the envelopes won't look as pristine as they ought.


shabbygirl 12/ 4/2009 #

Sandra, Thanks so much, now how do I PM someone? Oh my heavens, how can I not know this?? Debbie

nannie8 12/ 6/2009 #

I mail my cards out before the due but computer crash and I was unable to ccome on and say that I had mail them

Denise 12/ 7/2009 #

To all of my partners, if you did not write Merry Christmas in my card PLEASE DO NOT RESEND,. I know it was part of the swap requirements but alot of people missed it including myself. Thank you everyone for all the cards sent to myself and to my daughter in her new apartment. Swap sisters are the best ever!!!!

Jenann82 12/ 7/2009 #

Hi everyone. Please check your e-mail for a personal e-mail from me regarding this swap. @nannie8 thanks for letting us know about your problem. @Denise So was she surprised? Glad to be a part of that!

Denise 12/ 7/2009 #

She is just tickled to pieces, i am still gathering names from her so i can get everyone rated. Even people who did not get me as a partner sent her cards. You are all wonderful! Thank you so very much.

Momwithahook 12/ 7/2009 #

thanks to everyone who sent Jennifer Christmas Cards... She just brightened up and showed me each and everyone she has received thus far. :)

Jenann82 12/10/2009 #

@Momwithahook I am so glad to hear that we made her happy! I am glad that my swap was able to make her Christmas better. :)
