I'd be willing to consider including a Starbucks gift card as a host gift if the boundaries of this swap could be pushed out a little bit. Doesn't 42 participants sound so much more inclusive than 40? (laughing here)

Any sign of my cards yet?????

PaperScraps
05-29-2008, 11:34 PM
Nope. When did you mail them?

Pippin
05-30-2008, 08:41 AM
Eek, they were mailed on either the 14 or the 15th I think. I could have driven to Arizona and back in that time! It would have cost me more than $2 mind you! This is not good that they are not there yet.

Wow, Pippin! Hope they aren't lost forever! We have had so much trouble with our mail - a local carrier was arrested with tons of mail, incoming and outgoing, found in a storage building on her land!! I've started getting "Delivery Confirmation" on anything I mail. It might still get lost, but I have proof that I mailed it.

I hope they show up! Keeping my fingers crossed for you! and us! we don't want to miss out on your great art!!

giant hug!

Oh, yeah, there are a few cuppa's here at my house! I DO love my coffee!

AND, I DO love my cards!

From upwiththesun - "Jazzy Java", very nice hand-drawn card - love the colors!

From Sue W - # 2/5 - collage - I really like the background paper you used! and the cigar wrapper adds a nice touch.

From NYJunkie - # 3/4 - collage - I also like your background - is it embossed? I like the texture a lot. I also like the way the image wraps around to the back.

All of my cards are really great - thank you all!

Special thanks to PaperScraps - you did a great job hosting!

Off to give iTrader and reps...

have a great day!

Whoo...hooo. I got my returns. Ria...wonderful as always. The paper doily is grand. I love how you added the little ditty about coffee berries to the back! CupcakeDD...I got your "If only" card. Delightful. The latte art is a really neat touch. lola123...very nice use of the distressing inks on your mmmmmmm.... card. I think that one almost smells like coffee! (I toyed with the idea of placing the cards in the coffee tin overnight, myself! Decided against it because some members dislike scented cards.) Anyway, iTrader to host, and rep points to all you wonderful artists I have added to my collection to follow.....other than ria....these are new members to me. Welcome!
