July Secret Sister Swap

can you feel the heat?   summer is surely in the air...  i hope the summer has been well for you all so far...  not too much sunburn but lots of outdoor fun!  hehehe!

once again THANK YOU to all who continue to swap smiles!!!   the anticipation of finding out who your secret sister is must be fun in itself huh?!

well it's time for July's Secret Sister Sign ups!!  THEME for JULY - PATRIOTIC - RED, WHITE and BLUE!!!   let's pay tribute to our freedom!  you DO NOT have to create along the lines of 4th of July or things associated with the 4th...  as long as your creation has the color scheme, you're good to go!!  because i'll be away on a mini vacay this weekend, you have until July 2nd to sign up and swap info will be sent out by the 5th...

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.

**To clear up any confusion: your participation is monthly (unless otherwise stated by you) by confirming your participation through email or comment on the sign up posts. if i do not hear from you by the sign up deadline, it is assumed you will not be participating for the month. if it is easier for you to sign up a month ahead or for a few months, etc. let me know too.
