It is time to sign up for the 2016 Happy Birthday Swap!!!!!

Come on everyone, let's celebrate each other's birthdays by sending each person on our Birthday List a card and ATC to show that we enjoy sharing our crafting road and our lives. It is a wonderful gift to be kind to each other and to receive the kindnesses of others. Now Remember: THIS IS A YEAR LONG COMMITMENT! Everyone who signs up to be a part of this group, is signing up to send a card and ATC with birthday wishes to each person on this list, IN A TIMELY FASHION. Come on! Join in the birthday fun!!! Very few, if any members of this group, "forget" to get their cards and ATCs out, because everyone looks forward to what is coming for their birthday or they recall what fun it is to receive the happy wishes on or around their birthday. Tell your crafty friends to join us. Let's make this a year-long birthday party!!!:clap:

Sign up until midnight on January 15, 2016. (We will continue to have special activities during the months in which we have no birthdays to celebrate, only for those who wish to participate in the special activities.)

Thank you all for a couple of years of Bday ATC's. I hope RSC find's new owners so the forum and swaps can continue. (If you haven't read the closure post, see Important Announcement in the main forum page). I'm going to pass on 2016 but wish you all wonderful birthdays throughout the year!

!!!!!!!! All Can Participate !!!!!!!!!!


Hello Everyone! Whether the site closes or it doesn't I am hoping that we stay connected. I hope you have a list of the names and mailing addresses of all of the people in this group and their birthdays. I am looking forward to a fun year but we have to make it so. There are NO birthdays in February. How many of you are interested in making standard A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") friendship cards for each other? We can sign up until January 29, 2016, to see who is interested and then we will know how many cards we have to make and mail to the other February Special Event (Non-Birthday) Activity Participants. At 5:00 PM (EST) on the 29th of January, we will know the total number of cards to be made and mailed out. Everyone likes to get fun mail so come on, let's make this happen. The friendship cards should be postmarked by February 20, 2016. COME ON, Let's make some cards! :)

Greetings Everyone!!! It is 5:55 PM on Thursday, January 28, 2016, here in my kitchen. :) I promised to let everyone know the number of cards we will be swapping with each other by 5:00 PM tomorrow and I really didn't want to forget to post the final list. It looks as though there are 8 of us who are going to swap friendship (FUN) cards with each other in February. Make and mail a fun A2 size card, which is 4.25" X 5.5", to each person on this list. All cards should be postmarked by February 20th, so that we can start working on cards AND ATCs for our March Birthday friends (Toonces - March 6th AND Elayne - March 24th)

Game_Girl, my MAJOR goal for 2016 is to transform our back bedroom from its current state of junk room to my stamping studio, I'll be pretty busy with that.

The last couple of years I've joined the birthday swap and then dropped the ball because of illness and/or life getting in the way. Right now I want to sign up again for this year, but am concerned because of my past track record, so I'm nervous.

Okay, I've talked myself into it. I'll also do the February Fun swap, although I make no guarantees of anything being other than VERY MUCH CAS!

GameGirlAZ D
01-29-2016, 05:56 AM
Thank you for joining us, Renee. We enjoy having all who sincerely wish to send Birthday joy to those in our group. Since you have just decides to join us, please quickly send a belated Birthday Card AND ATC to Mopzsix because her birthday was in January. I will add your name to our list in the first posting and I added your name to our friendship cards activity for February. All those cards should be post marked by Feb. 20th. It is going to be a fun year!!!

Hello Everyone! This is to thank each of you in the February Happy Cards Share, for all the smiles you gave to everyone this month. I was very happy with the cards, notes, and smiles throughout February. Tomorrow is the 20th, so if there are some cards yet to be mailed, there is still a little time. I am about to work on our March Birthday Greetings. Let's keep all the happy hearts and smiles, Happy Hearts and Smiles. :)

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Renee, I was very concerned about you after the accident while making the February card. I got it today and I think you did a really nice job on it. Yes, I am having a great day and I hope you are as well.

Alsmouse, I also received your card today and I see why all the talk about washi. Your card is real cute. I also enjoy paper piecing. You have sparked an idea I hope to try soon.

Thank you both very much.

03-27-2016, 05:01 PM
Toonces, Hello. I saw your message but I don't understand.
My card and ATC should have reached you long before now.
I try hard to mail everything early. It saddens me to keep
people waiting when everyone is given the same amount of
time. I hope you enjoyed your birthday and your birthday
month.

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed this most Holy
Easter weekend and if you do not celebrate Easter, I still hope
you have had a wonderful weekend. We have cards and ATCs
to mail out in April. Let's keep our party going!
Happy Crafting!!!

Hi Crafters! I sincerely hope everyone is well.
It really sounds like you are very busy but I want
to thank you all for your efforts on behalf of our
year long birthday party. I hope those who have
had a birthday prior to today, have enjoyed the
cards and ATCs that have been made and sent to you.
Since there are no birthdays to celebrate in May or
June, who would like to join me in the next un-
Birthday activity?

Everyone needs a "Thinking of You" card from time to time.
How about if we make however many cards as the number
of us who agree to do this? Do Not sign them!!! Put your
stamp or your name on the back where American Greeting
would go and mail one to each person who signs up for this
activity. All cards MUST be mailed out by May 25th. That way,
by the end of May, we will have several "Thinking of You"
cards at hand.

Sign Ups for this un-Birthday activity will end on Friday, April 29th.

I am looking forward to sharing cards that we will be able to use.

Hi Everyone! I hope all is well. There are three months in which we have no one with whom to party (June, September and November). We have two people in our group who have made GREAT suggestions for Un-Birthday activities, so let's take the challenge!!! We are making the cards and sending them (unsigned) to each other so that we will have cute, usable cards at our fingertips.

In June let's make masculine, FLASH cards. They can be birthday cards but they don't have to be. It is really up to you. Some of us don't often make cards for men. If you are not familiar with FLASH cards, please check out the following video.

https://youtu.be/Hh9x1gRolmY

You have until May 27th to sign up.
You will make the same number of cards
as the number of crafters who sign up.

PLEASE mail your cards by June 24th.,
to the people on our list below.
(Thank you Alsmouse and Mopzsix.)
Thank you Everyone!!!

Again, I am looking forward to sharing cards that we will be able to use.

I would love to join in on this, but am feeling a bit overwhelmed at 1. realizing just how much stuff I've got and 2. trying to get it all quasi-organized and then 3. storing it all. Hope everybody has fun with this!

Hi Crafters! I sincerely hope everyone is well.
It really sounds like you are very busy but I want
to thank you all for your efforts on behalf of our
year long birthday party. I hope those who have
had a birthday prior to today, have enjoyed the
cards and ATCs that have been made and sent to you.
Since there are no birthdays to celebrate in May or
June, who would like to join me in the next un-
Birthday activity?

Everyone needs a "Thinking of You" card from time to time.
How about if we make however many cards as the number
of us who agree to do this? Do Not sign them!!! Put your
stamp or your name on the back where American Greeting
would go and mail one to each person who signs up for this
activity. All cards MUST be mailed out by May 25th. That way,
by the end of May, we will have several "Thinking of You"
cards at hand.

Sign Ups for this un-Birthday activity will end on Friday, April 29th.

I am looking forward to sharing cards that we will be able to use.

Hello CritterPortraits!!! I don't mind at all if you join this party. The only reason I use the dates is to have a sense of organization so that everyone has time to do what they wish to do and get it to the recipients in a timely manner. Everyone knows life happens and sometimes getting our crafting completed and mailed in a timely manner is a challenge but because most of us have been joining and enjoying these activities for a long while, we know how it feels to get promised items VERY late or even worse, sometimes not at all. It was my hope that we would have lots of people join the Birthday Club this year but it is my understanding that there are people who are still waiting on ATCs and/or cards from 2015. People chose not to participate because of that. I felt badly because I thought they discontinued their participation because of me. I would love it if we had 3-5 birthday people to celebrate each month but for whatever the reasons, we don't. By all means, you are welcome to be in this group. I am sure you signed up last night, right after I checked my mail at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. :)

Have some cake EVERYONE, the party is ON!!! :)

Hi Everyone! This party is so much fun! I have received some really cute THINKING OF YOU
cards for our May Un-Birthday Activity. I will definitely use them!!! I thank you so much. I know everyone is enjoying the music and the great Birthday Buffet, but this friendly reminder is to let everyone know that the THINKING OF YOU card mailing date is May 25th, so that everyone will get them in May. Also, the June Un-Birthday Activity is open for crafters to sign up until May 27th!!!! Everyone could use masculine cards from time to time. Remember, we are using the "flash card" idea. ( https://youtu.be/Hh9x1gRolmY )
Again, I can't wait to see your creativity!!! Excuse me! I have to put this plate down and get busy!!!

Sorry mine are tardy. My ratty, Jewel, had surgery last week to find out what a lump on her jaw was. She has a tumor growingon her lower jaw bone. She is in pain & having problems eating & drinking. The vet will do a follow up mid June. Needless to say, lots of worrying, driving back & forth to the vets & contacting 2 exotic vets in the UK.
No, they are done. Just need to pop them & my other swaps in the post.

CritterPortraits, WOW, what a cute card. I would like to burn up some highway right now. Just thinking about taking a nice relaxing trip to anywhere makes me smile. Thank you so much for the card and how it made me feel.


Hi EVERYONE!!! Okay, let's put the cake aside for a moment and get busy checking our supplies to prepare for our next birthday person. We must mail early. Her day is very early next month, so let's get busy. SSHHHHHhhhhhh! Don't let her see you! :)

Sorry running a bit behind. Gravity & I are not friends. First I fell down some porch stairs at a yard sale. Just rattled, no injury. About a week later, going to get the mail, tripped & landed hard. Hit tops of my knees, boobs, elbows, hands & the top of my nose. A nice young man stopped his car & helped me up. Thanked him profusely.
So, i am now lovely shades ranging from a deep plum to a bile green. I believe I have a very mild concussion, because I am a bit disoriented at times. If it continues more than a week i will be seeing the Dr.
So the current status is mostly colored, needs glue addresses & postage. I will post when they go postal.

Life is finally settling into a little more peaceful level, after a crazy week and a half. Nothing too major, it just seriously interfered with crafting time. :( Haven't even been on here much. That having been said, it's still a rather feeble excuse for the card & ATC for Yankee not getting finished or mailed in time. Seems I've done nothing but apologize to my RSC friends.

Yankee
07-02-2016, 03:29 PM
Thank you Gamegirl for the card and double sided ATC.
How did you get all those colors on the front? It is a very pretty card

Yankee
07-02-2016, 03:35 PM

And the effort you made to have it on time for my birthday.

I did some masking and applied the inks with baby wipes.

I know we were to do a card that could go for a man in June. I have just gotten all caught up, therefore this will be coming to a post office near you this week! (I never imagined havin your only child graduate from HS and then get ready for college would take so much time and energy )

Hi Everyone!!! I continue to hope and pray that all is well with you and if it isn't I am going to pray that you stay strong because this too shall pass. I am so enjoying our year long BIRTHDAY PARTY!!! The music, food and conversation has been great. I hope you are enjoying the party as well. If you are helping to create the party or the party is for you, I hope you are enjoying the party. Thank you so much to each one of you who has helped the rest of us enjoy our birthdays. If your birthday goes by and you don't hear from a member of our party, please let me know. I don't want any one to be disappointed.

Elayne, I can't thank you enough for the beautiful card and ATC. I got them today. I am so happy.

I am a senior and I am very thankful to be here to celebrate! Through it all, God has been very good to me. Turn the music back up and enjoy yourselves. There is still enough snacks, cake, ice cream and your favorite beverage to last this entire year. We won't run out, so help yourself!!! Have a GREAT WEEKEND!!! :) :) :)

Hi Ladies, Please accept my heartfelt apologies. I am exceedingly sorry that I am so late on my swaps.
I have been having a hard time with migraines that have been lasting up to 7 days at a time. I have been to urgent care, seen a different PA, been shot in the bum & a handful of new drugs. Trying to control the migranes has been a challenge & we believe I may have a bit of control. When I can, I have worked on my swaps. If you will allow me to send out my back log of swaps, I would like to continue participating in these swaps.
Thank you for your patience* and understanding. Ratty Hugs

Hello Everyone! I have had a wonderful month. Thank you for all the cards and ATCs. I love them!!! It is my hope that all is well with each of you. It is time to think about September and November when we have no birthdays to celebrate. What do you think about making holiday cards in September and holiday tags in November? Again, we would make the number of cards and/or tags and mail them UNSIGNED to each of the people who express interest in this activity. What do you think? If you have another acitivity in mind, come on, share. :) :) :) After I get an idea of who is interested, I will come back with additional details.

GameGirlAZ D
08-16-2016, 08:39 PM
September's Un-Birthday Activity will help us get our holiday cards started.
Sign up for the September Activity until Friday, August 26th. We will make
unsigned holiday cards for each person on our participation list as of the end
of the day on August 26th. Stamp your name on the back of the
card so that the recipient will know that you made the card. You can also
put your name on a post-it note inside of the card if you would like.
You may invite others to join us in this holiday card making activity. Having a
nice supply of holiday cards on hand sounds great to me. Come on, let's get
in the holiday card making spirit. :)
It is my hope that all of these cards can be mailed out to each person on the
participation list below, by September 24th which will give us time to get our
party preparations in tact for our October birthdays. (There are two!)
I can't wait to see the beautiful holiday cards swapped in this Un-Birthday Activity!!!

Any size limit? ??? Jw ty

Hi Debbie (Mopzsix)!
I can tell you are a very busy lady. I am happy for you. Okay, I am glad you are going to play along with us in November. I think I had better start that list now, so that it won't slip by me. :) Take care, Enjoy, and Be safe!

GameGirlAZ D
08-19-2016, 05:39 PM
November Un-Birthday Activity will be to make holiday tags to send to each of the participants on our list below. Anyone and everyone may sign up to play along with us until Friday, October 28th. Although it might be nice to throw all the size limits out the window, let's make all tags a minimum of 2"X 4" and remember, for mailing purposes, lets keep them relatively flat.

One additional note: My original thought was that we would only send each participant one tag but maybe we can do a couple more for each person. So it could be fun to send three tags to each person on our participation list. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

Sure, if you feel up to it, come on aboard.
I am finishing up my cards today so I can
get them out early and move on to the
October birthdays. I am having a grand
time at this party. If you all could see me,
I think you might think I have had a bit
too much cake! :) :) :)

Elayne's day was March 24th.
There are no birthdays in September
which is why we are doing Holiday Cards.
I am so excited to see what we share
in the Holiday Card Swap.

Did you get mine? for some reason my postal worker decided to not pick up my mail or deliver any mail to me. Caused a huge headache.

Saturday's mail brought a super-cute card and ATC to my house, courtesy of Yankee! The cupcakes on the card and ATC looks yummy, and the brunette in a party dress kicking up her heels is adorable. Is she me?

A.) RSC IS NOT CLOSING, thanks to Stampo (Wayne). I so appreciate what he is doing for those of us who enjoy the activities here on RSC. DON'T FORGET!!!! We must keep our 2016 Party going for Renee, Tracie and Jaimie. I am counting on every one of you to send out your cards and ATCs in good faith.
(Private Message to me with your E-Mail Address if you would like to help me keep this going at least through next year. I really wish lots of us would keep it going so everyone could continue to get lots of Happy Mail for their Birthday. Tell me what you think.)

B.) November Un-Birthday Activity will be to make holiday tags to send to each of the participants on our list below. Anyone and everyone may sign up to play along with us until Friday, October 28th. Although it might be nice to throw all the size limits out the window, let's make all tags a minimum of 2"X 4" and remember, for mailing purposes, lets keep them relatively flat.

One additional note: My original thought was that we would only send each participant one tag but maybe we can do a couple more for each person. So it could be fun to send three tags to each person on our participation list. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!
