Hello Everyone:

I have sent and received the following cards:

sanrisa1 - first time swapper, welcome! - sheepBlue, superhooker, Jenicat, Ursulaandolive, Vog, Lukenlarry, Kevsbabe29, Lylacfey, Carrieme, Pumpkinbear


Lilacprint, Lukenlarry Annalharutte, TracyinNH, Kevsbabe, Vog, Ursalaandolive, Superhooker, Pumpkinbear, Janelleleigh, Jenicat, Carrieme, Lylacfey, Sheepblue

As a first time swapper, I really enjoyed myself! I'm hooked on swapping! I'd love to do another card swap being that this was so successful.

Thanks for all the beautiful cards. Take a look at what I received.

It's business time.

I am so glad you joined us Sanrisa1!  You are one of us now, and be warned that the swapping thing can be pretty addictive! Wink

And...since this is a classroom and that means we are all good counters, we will all notice that some of the folks who elected not to "send/receive to/from ALL the folks in the swap"...errr....got kinda mismatched in terms of uneven numbers. (if you haven't noticed, don't feel compelled to continue reading! Wink)   Anyway, any mismatches are of course my fault entirely.  If anyone sent out more cards than they received and feels bummed out or sad or in any way disapointed, please pm me and I will make it right for you.  I already have a couple of extra cards I'm sending out (although of course they won't be Valentine's at this point Wink)  I think overall I did a reasonably good job of stuff but since this turned out to be a more complex swap in reality than it was in in my imaginationGrin I did make a small number of oopsies.  If you got oopsied on, please accept my apologies and like I said, just give me a pm and I'll get you taken care of before this swap is finally put to bed.

I've enabled my original links of cards to now show images...here's the next set:

Lylacfey - loved all the hearts and the possum stamp was too adorable. And the bubbewrap heart was the bomb!

Destined To Fail - so awesome to find all the goodies and I L-O-V-E-D the magnet - fantastic idea boys!!!!

Pumpkinbear - such a cool idea and I loved the sweet little heart!!

Vog -loved the lace around the card and the images.

Janelleleigh - very cool quote and pretty style!

Lmcbride - you are so clever to use a business card! I loved the watercolor nature of the blue background and the glitter - so pretty!

I have a few more to post too!!!!

I haven't taken individual photos of all the cards yet because I'm waiting to receive three more (which could be in my letter box right now, but I haven't checked today yet--I don't want it to be over!). I have one really bad photo that I will post at the end of this, of all my cards hanging up. My mum loves them all too and demanded I have them on display in the living room where she can see them too.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for making my first swap so much fun and thank you all for the lovely cards; they are all so beautiful and I love them so much!
I would love to join the next one.

So, here's the crappy photo of them hanging (it's raining and dark but the light did decide to shine through the window and  make all the cards hard to see!)

I will be back with photos of each card.

I just now received from fusbdgt and Dreambelle! Thank you both so much!

Just one to go now. Sunspotted, that's fine with the postage thing, it wasn't your fault at all, plus it still leaves a little excitement knowing there's still one more to come when most everyone else is finished!

This was the last one, so I included some of the envelopes so everyone can see how beautiful
some of them were!  there was also a pretty heart garland but I didn't write on it who it was from
and I've forgotten.  I don't have a pic because it is hanging over my computer monitor.  I will try to add a pic later.

Thank you, I look forward to another card swap!!!!

In a nice surprised today, and that I don't understand since it's Sunday, I received my last card today from lylacfey!  (I think a neighbor must have got it and slipped it in my mail slot.)  So I have received and opened all my cards and will post pictures tomorrow!  This was a great swap and I can't believe it's over!

i wrote up a whole long reply with pics of almost all of the cards i received (i was almost done!) and then i hit the "add to wists" button on my toolbar, and it all disappeared!

hopefully i'll be able to recreate it tomorrow, it took forever!

check out my crafty blog!

BooGirl, I am so glad my card found it's way to you.  You have a nice neighbor.

I had DH take photos of all my cards.  My camera is still acting wonky. He accidentally included a card my Mom made.  It's the heart & bird one in the last pic. 

He took them in groups.

Here's all the beautiful cards I received:

Thank you all so much. I love each & every one of them.  This has truly been the most fun swap I have ever been in. I can't wait to do another one.
