April brings lots of "showers"... and i'm not just talking that rain, but baby showers, bridal showers, take a bath kind of showers.... LOL, ok well bath/showers shouldn't just be done in April.... hehehe! but you catch my drift... for as long as i've known, April is always associated with some kind of 'shower'... so why not shower your secret sister with some SPRING!
Theme for April - Spring and/or Easter!! You can do an Easter themed creation or a spring one in general by associating something that is "SPRING" on your creation... for example, spring colors, spring flowers... Anything goes, as long as it fits the theme... =) Sign-ups will be open until Midnight on Friday, March 30th.
Reflection of my mini rules for this swap (Please take note of the blurbs in red):
1. You can swap anything you think is appropriate. Such as cards, 3d projects, gift tags, altered items, etc. You are not restricted to just a card for each swap... for example, you can do a card this month and gift tags next month, etc... be creative and use your talents! Many of you do not limit yourself to cards, there are some that do awesome jewelry, altered items and so on, so this is the swap to make something special and surprise someone... can't get creative? no problem, you are free to sub in a RAK too!
2. I kindly ask that you please send out your swaps before month's end. Please take into consideration snail mail timing. If you cannot mail your swap before the end of the month, you are given until the 5th day of the following month to do so. This will allow some time for your Secret Sister to receive it. If nothing has been received within 10 days past the end of the month, i will not include you in future sign ups. Please friends, let's play fair.
