This sounds fun, I think I would like to play. I haven't done many fantasy cards - will have to have a think what to do...

Evalila
01-23-2011, 04:15 AM
Thanks! I'll be mailing them soon, only I needed to ask. You said you wanted me to include a 98 cent stamp. So, it's ok for me to include a USA stamp?

Also, you want me to include a label with my name and address but not an envelope right?

Jill

You got it :)

I hope to get mine done and on their way to Germany as soon as possible! I can't believe it's taking me so long!!!

TabLynn
02-16-2011, 12:05 PM
Me too! I normally have no problem with fantasy themes, but its taking me a while to get going on these. I'd better get moving since they have to go all the way to Germany:)

ghillietoes42

katelnorth
02-21-2011, 09:20 AM
Finally got a chance to work on my cards for this swap- I have used an old calendar for the background, altered by sanding and painting, then a transparency for the dragons, a shiny orange moon and some alien foliage cut from bookpages and whatnot. A bit of marker in places.

I'll get them in the mail to you tomorrow!

Evalila
02-21-2011, 09:22 AM

Great, thanks for letting me know!

Evalila
02-23-2011, 01:48 PM
A little more than 3 weeks until the due date. Remember that cards are due in my hands on March 16. Please keep in mind that it can take 2 weeks for mail to arrive in Germany when sent overseas. Usually itŽs a little faster, though.
I hope all players I havenŽt heard of yet are busy working on their cards :D

Evalila
02-25-2011, 01:23 PM

I don't think there will be a problem with them getting to Germany by the 16th - but if they don't, well, shame on me. :dull:

WeŽre in the Swap-Gallery (http://www.atcsforall.com/swap163.php) :jiggy:

kentuckydakota
03-17-2011, 03:40 AM
Cool! Does every swap go into the gallery eventually, or is it only certain ones? How do they pick?

Evalila
03-17-2011, 04:02 AM
Hosts can decide if they want their swap to be in the swap-gallery. ItŽs a little extra work for them. They have to pick cards, scan them, put them in the swap gallery template and mail this to an admin.


BTW, all cards are in the mail!!! :)

AganaBelea
03-17-2011, 08:32 AM
Cool, I was curious about how the swap gallery worked! Seeing it makes me even more excited to see my returns!

katelnorth
03-20-2011, 06:03 PM
