Oct - Nov 2017 Aussie Christmas ATC Swap

Hi Everyone
Well here we are - another year almost over and our
last swap for 2017.
The theme for this swap is:

Aussie Christmas

As we didn't have a Christmas theme last year I thought
we could do a not so traditional Christmas swap.
Feel free to interpret the Aussie Christmas theme any way you like
and this time you are free to do whatever you wish.

        1. Australian papercrafters are encouraged to participate in this ATC swap.
        2. If you commit to the swap please, out of consideration for all the
            participants meet the set guidelines.
        3. To participate, write a comment to add your name to the list of participants
            below and I will email you my address details.
        4. Post your ATC's and a stamped self addressed envelope to me on or by
            the posting deadline (see 7 below). I recommend that you put your ATC's
            in a 9 pocket plastic sleeve to protect them from bad weather.

Deadline dates:
        5. Registration list for this swap opens Tuesday 3 October and closes
            Sunday 8 October.
        6. To register to participate please leave a comment before the closing date.
            I will then confirm the number of ATC's needed to be made for the current swap.
        7. Swaps must be in the mail to me by no later than Friday 17 November (as mail
            can take a business week to arrive to me depending upon where you are located)
            and I should receive them all by Friday 24 November at the latest.
        8. I will post swaps received on Monday 27 November at the latest so you should
            receive your ATC's shortly thereafter.

Participation governance:
            ATC swap numbers will be limited to ten people per swap.
            Founding members have automatic entry into each swap (but still need to
            confirm their participation for each swap).
            With the exception of founding members, participants will be eligible to take
            part on a 'first in' registration basis.
I do hope you will participate - any questions feel free to leave a comment.

What's an ATC?
An ATC is the acronym for Artist Trading Card.
For anyone new to ATC's it's a small piece of original work that measures 2.5" x 3.5".
There is no right or wrong way to create an ATC - you just need to stick to the
measurements and the rest is up to your imagination.
