08-07-2012, 12:07 AM
Of course "dibs" are not allowed :), but it might make sorting easier, lol.
Am working on mine now. Have some new paper I want to try, which will require a different pencil style than normal, so I'm looking forward to a change...
08-07-2012, 05:10 PM
Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
Good luck with the new paper. :)
08-08-2012, 01:31 AM
Ok my cards have gone postal!
08-08-2012, 02:41 AM
08-08-2012, 02:22 PM
I've got the last one done, so they're ready to post. I had planned to do our heron, who fishes the other side of the water. But the ducks were right outside my studio, begging to be chosen.
08-08-2012, 05:00 PM
Excellent Marita. I like the ducks best, so good choice. :)
08-09-2012, 04:16 AM
I've done my bird, have started my buds, ... I planned out 6 sets! I'll be doing them over the next several months, for individual trades...
08-09-2012, 07:40 PM
Sent my cards off today....
08-10-2012, 01:34 AM
Excellent! Thanks for letting me know.
08-10-2012, 06:14 PM
I posted my cards today. Keeping my fingers crossed as after my octopuses went AWOL I've sorta lost my nerve.
08-11-2012, 08:13 AM
Please sign me up . All my cards are finished! (except for background in dragonfly card)

Cool cards Dina! Do you need my address?
08-11-2012, 08:48 PM

08-14-2012, 07:43 PM
here's mine.. on the paper I can't remember.. when I find the pad (I think it's downstairs), I'll post the paper type.
PS. On stipple paper
08-14-2012, 11:21 PM
Excellent work as always Meran.
08-15-2012, 03:16 AM
Another beautiful set of cards meran! You are So talented!
08-15-2012, 03:53 AM
My Dark Eyed Junco just lost 3-4 comments in the Card Gallery.. :(
I edited all three files to add "Stipple Paper" to the description, and for some weird reason, more than half the comments dropped right off!
The reason I picked the subjects I did: the junco is in my yard all the time, in fact, they raised several clutches in my bushes :); the bug was pretty, found while researching Asian lilies; and the four o'clock was a common flower for me, growing up. I used to make fairies out of them! If you don't know how to do this, just ask ;)
08-16-2012, 05:17 PM
Spiefie and Skyelance's cards have arrived safe and sound.
08-17-2012, 09:26 PM
Silversweet's lovely cards have arrived!
08-17-2012, 10:20 PM
Erika, my cards went out today.
08-20-2012, 12:27 AM
I got my cards done today, so will mail them off asap. I'll post pics as soon as I take photos and can upload them.
08-20-2012, 05:50 PM
Great. Thanks for letting me know Dina and Rk. :)
08-20-2012, 10:32 PM
Nzflutterby and Daedrya's cards arrived today.
08-20-2012, 11:37 PM
Okay, finally finished my "bug" card! Here they are: (the carnivorous plant was made specifically as the host card as Tempest collects those types of plants :) ) These will go out in tomorrow's post Tempest.
08-21-2012, 04:31 PM
Syndil, your cards are wonderful! I love the poppies..
I hadn't had a chance to upload mine, so here they are:
08-21-2012, 05:03 PM
Wonderfull, beautiful cards from both of you!
Thanks soooooo much for the amazing card Syndil!!!! :D
08-23-2012, 07:17 PM
Yippie!!! What a GREAT cards are showing for this swap!!!!! Glad to see mine arived!!
08-24-2012, 06:15 PM
Dina54's cards have arrived. :) Thanks so much for the extra.
08-25-2012, 04:30 AM
Yay! Glad you like it :D
08-28-2012, 04:06 AM
Waghtercolors and Mlydon's cards have arrived. Thanks so much for the extras ladies.
08-28-2012, 12:43 PM
Hooray! I'm glad they made it safely and it time :) I can't wait to see my returns in September - the cards for this swap have been beautiful! Meran killed me with that red beetle. I have those little suckers attempting to eat all of my Asiatic lilies before they have a chance to bloom for the third year in a row...buggers.
08-28-2012, 04:31 PM
Wow, Mlydon! I had no idea someone here actually had them snacking around their yard :) So, I did good then in depiction? (I was working off some reference photos...)
I almost did a Japanese Beetle. I remember them eating my mom's roses from the inside. Hated those things but they were beautiful!
I miss Four O'Clocks (my choice of flower).
I LOVED your purple tulip, btw ;) !!
08-28-2012, 11:02 PM
Thanks, Meran! And yes, I've had those beetles for about four years now. I have to treat my lilies with Neem once a week until they bloom, or those little buggers will eat them entirely. There's no getting rid of them, apparently. Supposedly, they eat Bittersweet as well, which is a major invasive around here, but I haven't seen them on that, yet..
08-30-2012, 12:32 AM
Syndil's lovely cards arrived today. :)
08-30-2012, 12:30 PM
Yay! I was beginning to wonder.
09-03-2012, 02:31 AM
Oh my gosh! I have failed! I'm so sorry. I completely forgot that this was due early Sept. Obviously I will not be participating in this one.
09-03-2012, 04:39 PM
Okay Bluepear. Thanks for letting me know.
09-06-2012, 10:20 PM
The last set of cards has arrived! :D
I shall be swapping them this weekend and mailing them on Monday. iTraders shall also be forthcoming.
Thanks for playing everyone, and thanks again to those who included a hostess card.
09-07-2012, 10:28 AM
Ooooooo... can't wait to see my goodies! It's like Christmas but better (I have to buy my own pressies!)
09-11-2012, 05:41 PM
Cards have been swapped and are in the mail. I hope you all like your returns!
09-14-2012, 06:27 PM
