Pick a Theme
(ATC swap, Round 1)
,

Each person makes a card for the other participants in their chosen theme, so everyone ends up with a set in the theme of their choice.
(This is similar to the ATC Swap Rings)
I suggest thinking of a simple, universal theme that most everyone could easily create. 
Random 'easy'/universal ideas: roses, ducks, libraries, the word 'love', red poppy flowers, Elvis, Batman, rainbows....
Probably 'Too hard' or controversial topics: bible verses, ouija boards, Martha Washington,(I would steer clear of things like this or anthing people have to do a bunch of research on...you want making your card to be easy and enjoyable for the other artists!)  Variety and creativity is good, just dont' get TOO obscure.
Both of the ATC ring swaps have been good about this, check those for ideas as well.

There will be 2 groups for the swap, each with (maximum of) 7 participants.  You will make 6 cards, one for each of the themes of the people in your group.  You will recieve 6 cards back!
This swap is recommended for experienced (read: responsible, reliable, sending on-time, sending quality cards) ATC swappers.  The reason is that crafting for another person's specific theme can be a challenge.  Also, since there will be many people crafting for you, you need to have successfully completed a few ATC swaps. Judge for yourself if you qualify. I have had flakers in previous swaps. One flaker in this one would need 6 angels; I really dont' want to have any drop-outs in this one.
