Ahhh H - Count me in -- I'll make it fit. I'm sure the work this will amazing and I don't want to miss out! Plus, it'll be a good exercise in detail and textured line - always good practice for me.

Bad girl! Due date is too early! Make it Mid Feb and I'll play.. otherwise, I HAVE to say no. Too many outstanding personal trades AND swaps... and we know I can do this one, hmm? My avatar took all week... even the others I did were pricey, time-wise.
Change the deadline? please?

Thanks Harriet :-)) I have your address. Do you want me to wait until Feb to send them off? This is my first 'swap' with the group, and I will have to allow at least two weeks for travelling time.
I even printed out labels for the backs!!

Hugs Sue :-))

Sue...
I think you will really enjoy swaps and will find yourself joining them often!
You can mail them whenever you want.
:)

I have a special place I keep them and will just pull them when its time.

Did you post them in the gallery?

scribblenpaint
12-28-2007, 10:16 AM
Yup, uploaded them to my gallery. They are on their way to you. I posted them this afternoon.

As much as I really really really don't wanna do this...
I'm afraid I have to drop from this swap. :(

Just way too much stress right now. Maybe if I had a card finished by now, i would stick with it...but I don't even have one started.

I am so sorry, Whitemoth. I was really looking forward to this one too.

WhiteMoth

Love the cards i've seen for this swap. I've just checked out some of Brian Frounds art, and it looks so complicated and detailed, way to scary for me to try. Hope your gonna do a swap gallery of these cards Whitemoth, would love to see them all together. :)

I will scan them all together and yeah....I think they would look great. But....I think your art would have been a wonderful addition!
Alot of his art is much more simple than it looks!

I'm a bad ATC artist. Bad. I, umm, HAD to keep one for myself. Sorry. Really I am. But I don't have any Brian Froud's of my own, you see, and I, well, I just FELL IN LOVE.
They'll be posted here tomorrow I guess.

Meran your cards are cute! I love them!

Well, here's the deal with me. I was going to drop this swap as I didn't realize it was due by the 25th. For some reason I had it in my mind that it was due in March. Anyway, when I realized I had the wrong date, I worked on my cards this past thursday and friday with the intention of sending them priority on Saturday. Well...the post office closes at noon and I didn't make it there in time. White Moth....do you still want me to send the cards on Monday or would you rather swap the cards without mine since they will be late? I know...I've been really terrible lately about being late! These due dates just keep creeping up on me unexepectedly.

Great! They will go in the mail tomorrow Priority. Hopefully it won't take too long as Indianna isn't that far from Minnesota. However, I just noticed I have two addresses for you. I had these addressed to your PO Box in Helmsburg. Is that correct? Or should I be using the other address in Nashville?

You dont have to send them Priority

You are so close...save yourself the extra money....please.

Yeah....the P.O. Box is the correct one!
