09-21-2007, 12:37 PM
I will likely sign up but I need a few weeks first before I fully commit. I LOVED that movie :)

09-21-2007, 03:39 PM

09-21-2007, 06:12 PM
Welcome clep and TabLynn! Yay!

Amerasu take your time, but we would love to have you!

OY I thought about Z when I first set this one up knowing there would at least be 2 of us :spinny:

09-21-2007, 06:40 PM
Loved the movie.
Hated the ending.

You can make me a member of this swap. I've totally overwhelmed so what's one more? :)

09-29-2007, 12:17 AM
Yay! From one overcomitted person to another, welcome!

10-01-2007, 02:56 AM
I've gotten two cards done this weekend.

10-01-2007, 03:05 AM
Awesome, awesome, AWESOME!!! Way to get on the ball!

And for everyone else who isn't in this swap, you are way missing out!!!

10-04-2007, 03:04 AM
one more card, here's a preview

10-04-2007, 03:08 AM
Yay! Great job!

10-08-2007, 04:50 AM
Klawzie had the idea of pushing back some of her swap due dates and I was wondering if that is something this swap would want to do. I was thinking maybe to the middle of December if anyone was interested. If no one wants to change then we will leave it as is, but I thought with such a small group of us maybe it wouldn't hurt to extend it to give others the incentive of time to join up. Let me know what you think! I good either way :spinny:

10-08-2007, 03:54 PM
Either way is fine with me.

10-08-2007, 03:58 PM
I would be interested in a later due date LOL

10-08-2007, 05:22 PM
If I were to play, my cards would all be of Stelios in various mid air poses. I loved that character. I might play if you move the date back.

10-09-2007, 02:31 AM
Alright then the date shall offically be changed to Dec 15th. I will change in the swap info if one of the mods could change it in the thread title. Yay!

Ran across this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7qKD-Ph7ds) on YouTube

BEWARE may be considered in bad taste, but having lived in Tijuana Mexico and working in San Diego which is the hotbed for this controversy it made my day a little better.

10-22-2007, 05:52 PM
Aw, heck, I'm in :)

10-22-2007, 05:52 PM
And that vid was FUNNY

10-22-2007, 06:10 PM
OK - sign me up, Abi.

I live in Tucson Arizona where border issues are big time so this really hit home. Very funny!

10-22-2007, 09:46 PM
Got ya both in!

10-28-2007, 09:49 PM
Alrighty finally finished my card for the host. Gave me fits so I decided to go "13 minutes" on it and it turned out better than my former overly fussy attempts. Still not that happy with it but its gonna hafta do:) I should have these mailed out this week.

10-29-2007, 02:20 AM
13 minutes? What? That is way better than I could do in 13 minutes! Great job! I will be looking for them in the mail :)

11-05-2007, 03:38 AM
Tablynn your cards came in yesterday and they are fabulous! Great job!

12-11-2007, 07:52 PM
Reminder - Cards need to be postmarked by Saturday, Dec 15th :)

12-11-2007, 11:29 PM
That's what mine will be postmarked! I can't find enough good pics of Stelios :(

I guess I'll have to make some up.

12-12-2007, 12:01 AM
Mine should be there any day now. I sent them last week. I did scan them but I haven't cleaned the scans yet. Behind here as in everything else!!!

12-15-2007, 07:05 AM
Here are mine going out on Saturday so that they are postmarked for the 15th.

1238 1239 1240

12-15-2007, 10:15 AM
Those are awesome! I am looking forward to seeing them in person :)

12-15-2007, 04:00 PM
Awesome Anne! I am mailing these out TODAY :D

12-15-2007, 04:02 PM
Oh, and the one in the middle is my fav *cough*

12-15-2007, 06:02 PM
Okay, I guess they are NOT going to get sent because I spent the last hour and a half trying to make decent looking cards and they all turned out looking like crap, especially compared to the beautiful work you others have all created ()_()

12-15-2007, 08:03 PM
Are you sure? I'm sure we wouldn't mind waiting since I am still waiting on clep's to come in. At least show us what you were working on :)

Speaking of cards arriving, Sal's came in today! Great cards.

12-15-2007, 08:23 PM
Okay..I'll give it another shot :) They really DID look like crap though! lol

12-15-2007, 08:30 PM
I may have to start a crappy art thread with some of my super crappy cards, just so I can laugh and stop taking my art so seriously :)

I am looking forward to whatever you can create, because it is always awesome!

12-15-2007, 10:10 PM
Seriously, Annie - you should send them anyway. I bet they're phenomenal!

12-16-2007, 04:30 PM
Bit late,here is the scan

12-18-2007, 03:06 AM
Clep's came in today!!! They are fabulous as usual! If everyone else's cards get here by Friday I will swap them out this weekend. However if they come in later you all will have to wait a while for me to return from my trip to Mexico :)

12-18-2007, 03:46 AM
That's good to hear :)

12-21-2007, 04:59 AM
EQ are you still playing? Just curious :)

Here are my three.

12-21-2007, 05:27 AM
I hope I get one of these.

Is this a big enough hint?

12-21-2007, 05:45 AM
I made one I'm okay with LOL, But I seriously don't want to hold things up, I won't have any more art time till this weekend to finish :(

12-21-2007, 05:58 AM
How about this, if Anne's cards come in tomorrow I will just swap stuff and send it out, however if they don't come in I won't be able to swap them out until I get back in January. So you can hold off making a decision until we know if the cards come in?

12-21-2007, 03:43 PM
That would be good Abi :D

12-21-2007, 04:50 PM
Great oogly moogly - they haven't shown up yet? Must be the Christmas traffic and the weather.


01-09-2008, 05:56 AM
Ok, so I am so late in getting these out, but fear not they are on their way back to you. I scanned them last night, sorted them, and put them in the mail today. I am going to go and make sure I have left feedback for everyone. I must say these cards were fabulous together, really stunning.

By the by, clep I was searching your gallery yesterday and I was wondering if it would be possible to get prints of the ones that you kept? I could print them here if it would work, but they are awesome!

Again sorry for the tardiness, but what a great swap!

01-09-2008, 07:34 AM
Hah - god I am so lame!!! I thought I had already received the cards and had forgotten to leave you feedback. So I have left you feedback prematurely.

Man - losing an ovary does numbers to ones memory. They aren't kidding.

01-09-2008, 10:30 AM
I should have higher-res scans of them, but be warned, my printer at home is not exactly the best one could get. I could send the digital copies over if you want.

01-10-2008, 12:31 AM
I can print them here if you want to save on postage, and I would promise to only print one set :)

01-11-2008, 10:18 PM
Yay! I got my returns today. Great cards from amerasu, anonevyl, and clep. Thanks everyone for the super cards to add to my collection and also to abi for hosting:)

01-11-2008, 10:33 PM
I only got bills and tax crap in the mail today :(

01-12-2008, 03:10 AM
Here are the scans of our swap. If this is picked for a Swap gallery swap I have higher resolution scans. Great job everyone!

01-12-2008, 09:29 PM
WOW... Yeah, nothing I made came out that good :eek: I think this would be great for a swap gallery here at the site. Abi, do you want to create the image using the template and email it to Sal?

01-12-2008, 11:24 PM
Would you? I can email you bigger images if you need bigger ones :) Thanks, even though I would have loved to have you play with us!

01-13-2008, 03:21 AM
Got my excellent returns today from Abi, Clep, and Tablynn!!!


Thank you to the hostess!!!

01-22-2008, 01:32 AM
Yay, it came!
Yay, it came with nice stamps! (that my dad seems to have taken a liking to).
Yay, it came with nice stamps and super cards inside from Anonevyl, Tablynn and Amerasu!
