Here is YOUR invitation --

Please join the fun in our mail envelope swap! Create or decorate and send in 5 envelopes in return for 5 different ones or send in 10 envelopes in return for 10 envelopes. Please do NOT send in more than 10 envelopes per swap.

Decorate your envelopes with whatever media you prefer or enjoy -- collage materials, digital art, rubber stamps, paint, colored pencils, pastels, etc., OR you can make your own envelopes from calendar pages, magazine covers or cool paper. BE CREATIVE!!!

Put your name and email on each of your creations.

Your envelopes do not all need to be alike. All sizes are acceptable as long as it will fit into the USPS Large Priority Mailing Envelope (probably 8" x 10") for return to you!

NO glitter use please.

Be sure to include your name, address, and email address along with $5 to:
Jill Campbell
PO Box 256
Asbury, MO 64832
jacks_friend_jill@yahoo.com

Deadline = November 30, 2010

The $5 fee is to pay for the USPS Priority Mail postage to return your artistic envelopes to you. By using Priority Mail, I can monitor the progress and delivery of the package back to you with your envelope "treasures."

Anyone outside of the United States who wants to participate, contact me by email and I will find out the appropriate mailing fee for your return envelope.

Any questions or problems on this, please email me personally and not to the public posting to jacks_friend_jill@yahoo.com .

Thank you!
