Question - is everyone going to post and won't that just be a bunch of duplicate pictures?  and, if, like me, people sent the same cards to everyone, won't it take the surprise away for those still waiting to receive?

I've been in swaps before where everyone sent out the same thing to a group of people (mix cd swaps) and the general understanding was that only one image was posted -- unless it was extraordinarily crappy photography/scan.  Wink

As for ruining the surprise, well maybe. However, in my experiance, it only made me more excited about receiving.  Smiley

I say post 'em if ya got 'em, ladies.

Hmm, good point, Homerof2.  All of mine are the same as well.

I think that it would be OK for everyone to post when they have all their cards - I know that that doesn't completely solve the problem, but given the short send out period for this swap, people should get their cards at roughly the same time anyway.  There will still be some surprise since some people will have sent different cards.

Any suggestions? Huh

I don't know...maybe some people could avert their eyes from the gallery for awhile if they really want to be surprised?

I received all five of my cards, so I hope it's ok to post them!

From ScotSkipper:



From CJSachiko (my freshman year roommate was named Sachiko!):



From lilliesnremains:



From curse10:



Last but not least, from retro-redux:



Sorry that some of the images are small.  I am still trying to grasp that whole resizing thing in Photoshop.  Thanks everyone for the fun swap.  I have all my cards proudly displayed in my front hallway.  I hope you enjoy the cards I sent.  Happy Holidays to everyone!!

I've received all my wonderful cards from Group 3. They were all fantastic-one was even a bookmark and two other ladies sent extras-a paper snowflake and some gold/silver envelopes to use later.

Thanks to all!
