Thanks for letting me know Craftygirl34, I saw your cards in the gallery and they are fab.
SallyAnn, I saw your cards in the gallery, they are super!

03-05-2008, 05:03 PM
Thanks for the lovely comments:jiggy: I have to be honest this was a challenge and was worried when I started it. However I have really enjoyed drawing them and i found it really hard to part with them and had to force myself to get them ready to post. But they should be with you in a few days.

My favourite is Jane Grey as the photo of her is in black and white, so i coulld choose which colour I liked.

I think I may do some more of these, so thanks again for giving me a challenge and spuring me on to do more.;)

03-05-2008, 05:48 PM
Craftygirl34, I am so glad you have enjoyed the challenge, there is something very satisfying when you achieve something that has stretched you! I will let you know when your cards arrive.

03-07-2008, 09:59 AM
LAB, your cards arrived today, they really are super!

I am still waiting for 6 peoples cards, 5 of which have replied to an email to say there cards are definitely coming, one person may be a little late so I will hold on until I get all the cards before I swap out.(due date is 12th March)

03-07-2008, 03:35 PM
Hi Purplecat, just to confirm, I'm alive (sort of) and my cards will be posted out over the weekend.

And a big thanks for the extras xx

03-11-2008, 12:52 AM
i have definitely withdrawn.
Sorry not being able to play, was out of creative juice for awhile.

03-11-2008, 10:16 AM
Susietex your cards have arrived this morning, and I have to say they are fantastic! A big thanks for the extra card x

The due date was tomorrow, but I am waiting on three people, and they are definitely sending, so there will be a little delay, hope people don't mind. As soon as I get the last cards in I will sort and send.
I have to say you have done such wonderful cards I would be hard pushed to choose a winner if I had to!

03-11-2008, 11:57 AM
So happy they made it, with the wind storms I thought they may blow right past!!!

03-12-2008, 07:32 AM
Sure - no problem Karen - it'll be worth the wait.

03-19-2008, 03:12 PM
Sorry about the delay everyone I am just waiting on a couple of peoples cards. Poor craftygirl34's cards went missing in the post so she is kindly redoing them. It is a terrible thing to have happened, but something out of our control, goodness only knows where they have disappeared to!
I will let you all know when I am able to sort and post.

03-19-2008, 03:44 PM
Hi Karen i mailed them yesterday by recorded delivery so they should be there tomorrow hopefully.

03-29-2008, 05:47 AM

03-30-2008, 03:09 PM
Craftygirl34 I havent got my tickets yet!

Shelly has received her cards, just wondering if the rest of the uk ones have-
Let us know they have arrived saftely and take time to leave feedback and rep points- thanks

03-31-2008, 01:11 PM
Help! I've been trying for the past two days to leave Jonquil a rep point. Everytime I make an attempt I get the response that I have to spread some rep around before I leave her another point, but I've yet to leave her any...can anyone help me out?

03-31-2008, 01:18 PM
Shelly its usually that you have to give out so many(not sure if its 30?) before you give that person any more. Now if you have not ever given Jonquil any then I am stumped, you will have to ask a mod or in the members support, let me know how you get on.

03-31-2008, 04:35 PM
Hi Purplecat, yes my fab returns have arrived... thanks go to, Marita, Polarart and SallyAnn.

You just never know with the post!
Let me know gals when they turn up please.

04-08-2008, 03:16 PM
No cards received yet--crossing my fingers for tomorrow!!!

04-14-2008, 09:24 PM
:no:Still no cards

04-15-2008, 02:25 AM
Ok I am getting seriously worried now, some rolos that I sent to US on 31st March have all arrived!
I think we will still have to give it another couple of weeks to see if they turn up, before we declare them lost.

04-19-2008, 10:07 AM
I want to thanks everyone who has kindly agreed to help out by making/sending extra cards so we can send some to PolarArt and SallyAnn as their cards have gone missing in the postal system.
I will be leaving rep points.

04-19-2008, 04:13 PM
Hi Karen i cant believe this has happened again, I didnt even realise, Im sorry or you could have used my extra cards.:nah:

04-20-2008, 10:40 AM
PolarArt that is such great news!! I am so glad the cards arrived eventually and intact! It makes you wonder exactly what they do with our mail doesn't it?

Well thanks again to everyone who kindly offered to help, if you have already posted your cards will be going to SallyAnn if not you dont need to now as we will have enough cards for her.

04-21-2008, 07:43 AM
Big thanks to Ria, Marita and Paperfairys who have sent in cards x
