Ok Ready to send my cards off.. and what happens I run out of yellow on my printer...this means the whole thing shuts down awaiting a new cartridge, only trouble is the one I thought was here, is a used one..LOL and I have looked at it twice thinking no don't need to get one yet...LOL
Never mind, so instead of scanning them I have taken a picture of them and have uploaded from my camera... They look a little crooked around the edges but believe me they are straight..LOL (Must be the picture taker that is a little squeiff....LOL)

Anyway here they are...

02-01-2011, 07:18 PM
genaflatley-thank you!
whatcha mean by "I am thinking it's from the perspective of the crime victim lying on the ground looking up? A spin on "Law and Order" or "NCIS" ?

02-02-2011, 02:01 AM
Actually now that you said that, I totally see that too! Although I feel like it's super menacing! So maybe really creepy police men lol.

RCVD cards from mzpurlasso

02-03-2011, 03:32 AM
oh haha thats my card 'The Swollen Eyeball' lol cool you see it that way I totally see what your saying. Actually thats from my fav show, Invader Zim... thats a secret entity that Dib (the main character against Zim, an alien) belongs to. Thats actually a paranormal investigator group lol. 'I spy a police man' is the card that has all the tiny characters and in there the only thing that is blue is the cop. There is a lil dinosaur pooping(lol) in there along with some other characters such as spider-man, the hulk, and a Star Wars jedi knight....
Thanks for explaining and im glad you like em,

Hi - here I am. I gave up looking thru threads for people so I could leave rep points. Go to their profile, click 'view all stats' over at right, then just pick any message they ever sent and leave points there. Like I'm going to do for you in a second! :D

Just Ducky
03-04-2011, 01:36 AM
I usually find all players on page 1 or 2 of the swap thread...as the first couple pages show people signing up.... it would be harder on really large swaps I know...
