This is the spot to post the beautiful handmade cards that you're swapping....

There will still be a surprise because once I get all of the cards, I'll put together individual packages for each of you with a mix of the cards from everyone.

If you don't have a camera to post, let me know and I'll post your cards when they arrive to me.

Another batch of amazingly beautiful cards has arrived, this time from abbeychristine.  She kindly sent me an extra card to keep (and some postage) - thanks! Smiley



A close up of some of the hand-painted detail!


Now that I have heroinechic's cards and this batch from abbeychristine, I'm really excited to see the rest, and send the packages back out to each of you.

Another set has arrived, courtesy of IqJones who was VERY busy crafting 12 cards!!  They are stitched and either watercolor or marker, and have matching envelopes complete with double-stick tape (great idea!).

Here is a pic of the lot with their envelopes...

Kendalj and alleycat.rm's lovely cards have also now arrived - yeah!  We're getting there...still waiting on cards from BagLady, Idigmusic, spaz-muse and germ@n chocol@te, but all have indicated that their cards are in the mail.  Hopefully I will be able to send out the packages to each of you by next Thursday.

I'm not sure what BagLady is embarassed about...her cards came in the mail yesterday, and they are gorgeous!  Grin

I also recieved a great batch of fortune-inspired cards from Idigmusic! Smiley  I'm very anxious to send back out your packages, but I'm still waiting on 2 (spaz-muse and germ@nchocol@te who said theirs have been sent).

Should be by the end of the week!

OK...we're all good to go, minus one hurricane-affected would-be swapper (spaz_muse).  I'll work tomorrow night to divide up the cards and package them, and will get everything in the mail on Wednesday.  Yeah! Smiley  The cards are great, and there's definitely a huge variety.

I'll post mine as soon as I can get my camera up and running again.

The cards are on their way to all of you. Thanks for doing such an amazing job!  It was a difficult job to figure out how to divide them up (especially with 2 sisters swapping) - it meant being really organized to make sure no one got back a card they had crafted!

I almost forgot the post the last pics, so here they are...

Funny thing is, I had forgotten all about this swap, and sat there for a good minute or two looking at these amazing cards thinking "Now, why would someone I don't even know be sending me a bunch of blank greeting cards?" LOL  Roll Eyes then it hit me, and I was thrilled!  Grin
