Awesome cards, chaosatlanta!

Glad my cards arrived safely, Elena! I'm always on the edge of my seat until cards I've sent out make it to their destination! Having had more than one set go AWOL (usually when I send overseas) I'm antsy until they get there. LOL

02-25-2008, 04:19 PM
Me too! Even though I have to say that in a year and more than 100 swaps, none has gotten lost :)

liblue26 and hogarth cards arrived today, thanks for the extra :)

I have heard from everybody except bublecup and Marlien. I will swap cards on Sunday, and post them on Monday. I think all the in transit cards should be here by then.

03-21-2008, 10:44 AM
I posted my cards at the Flickr site. I am Artsaves over there.

03-21-2008, 01:43 PM
Mine were posted last week. They havent arrived yet? I sent them air, so they should have arrived by now. :/ Hopefully they'll arrive tomorrow.

03-21-2008, 02:52 PM
Dadaology, your cards are here! Thanks for the extra! I really appreciate it!

Bubblecup, your skellies have not made it yet, we'll give it a couple of days. My experience with Canada is 2 weeks.

03-22-2008, 02:22 PM
Elena - Have my cards arrived? The others I mailed that day to a US destination landed at the other end, so I hope these have too!

03-22-2008, 03:38 PM
gindeleo, your cards are here, thanks!

coffeelatte your cards are not here yet. I would not worry yet, it has only been a couple of days.

Hopefully the ones we are missing will be here on Monday, I'll keep you poste :radar:

03-22-2008, 03:45 PM
I almost forgot about this swap, it will be great fun to see what returns i receive

03-22-2008, 07:54 PM
They should have been there by now. I didn't send them standard, I sent them oversized letter, which goes air, and the estimate they give is 4-6 days. I'm sorry Elena, and don't hold up the swap for me. Just return them to me when (if?) they arrive, and I'll paypal you the postage price. :(

Bubblecup, your skellies have not made it yet, we'll give it a couple of days. My experience with Canada is 2 weeks.

03-22-2008, 07:57 PM
Bublecup, you don't have to paypal me anything, and there are another couple of cards in transit, so I am sure yours will make it soon, don't worry, please :cool:

03-24-2008, 01:32 PM
bublecup and coffelatte cards are here! Thanks for the extra and the goodies!
Just waiting for sliceablekitty cards. I will wait until tomorrow. If they are not here, I'll arrange something with her later.

03-24-2008, 10:07 PM
Glad they made it! If sliceablekitty wants to trade, I have a couple more cards for some one on ones...

03-25-2008, 08:54 AM
I'll let her know. She hasn't logged in since the 14th, and she had sent me a pm she had sent her cards but they should had been here by now.

03-26-2008, 01:35 PM
