Go to the "advanced" option when posting a reply, and you'll see "Attach Files". Click on "Manage Attachments", and when the pop up window appears you can go into your computer's file and find the card you want to attach. You can attach more than one at a time if you want.

My cards are done. All are from pics I took at a plein air workshop in September in Acadia National Park (Maine). The weather was crazy. Foggy, windy, sunny all in the same day. We painted under umbrellas & ducked back into cars from time to time.
1. Storm cloud
2. Beautiful day
3. Clouds from the seawall
4. Sunrise from The Moorings
All are pastel.
If anyone is interested. The paintings I did that week are on my website.(link below)

Great eyecandy, all...

Sabrina, I know the snow you mean. I grew up in the South, so wasn't very familiar with the various snowfalls till I moved to CA. I will never forget a day when we'd stopped to get gas for the car in the midst of a piney area, and there wasn't a breath of wind but the snow was falling and the flakes looked just as you have painted them...I stared in amazement and delight - how beautiful it was! They were like snow-polka dots drifting down...against the fabulous deep green of the trees...

Here's my cards for the swap. Sorry about the pics being a bit blurry. Watercolors made the cards curl up a bit, not much but enough to make my scanner cranky. :P
Cards are spending the night under a heavy book and tomorrow I'll send them.

Halla

Me, good with watercolors? Katrina you just made my day with that compliment. I don't feel like I'm good with watercolors. Most of the time it feels like I'm banging my head against a wall while working with them and the results vary a lot. The surprise element watercolors have drives me crazy. I still must like them because I return to them every once in awhile.

Jean

Hi Big Toe, you need to Post a message and at the top beside the wite smiley face is a paperclip looking thing, I think it looks more like a flip flop, but anyway, put that and add your attachments. If you need further help, let me know. It's frustrating figuring out all this stuff. Good luck, wanna see them. Tracy:D

MACE
03-20-2011, 10:51 PM
if you want to post directly from your computer click the "go advanced" tab on bottom use the paperclick and browse to file on your computer. I do it that way because its easier for me. Also you can "preview" your message to see if it worked :) good lucck!

big toe studio
03-21-2011, 01:44 AM
it says "upload of file failed" on the manage attachments page
does that mean its too big? ( i scanned 5 atcs)
yes,very frustrating

Here's my cards:
#1 Sunset hills with water reflection
#2 Blue Sky with clouds
#3 Sunset with tree horizon and water reflection
#4 Setting sun

These cards were fun. Nothing is prettier to work with than a watercolor sunset. :) [And as we all know, the scans never really show the colors very well, but in person they are always better.]

ART101--those are gorgeous

Question: when i host a swap, i always participate, so i always get a full set myself.
dont most hostesses do that? Im wondering about the 4th card some send

Art101
03-21-2011, 04:05 AM
You don't have to be a participating player in a swap that you host. But yes, if you do play (ie make cards), you will get "returns" as a player. So, in a 3 card swap, you would make three cards, and you would get 3 cards in return.

Meanwhile, in a swap, many players DO send in a extra card to the host as a "thank you". But, the host cannot require an extra card for themselves. In theory, if EVERY player sent in an extra card, then the host could indeed get to keep a card from everyone. [If the player wants to provide an extra card for the host, sometimes the player will tell the host to "pick a card of your choice", or sometimes they will make a specific card for the host.]

If I've mess up the details, comments are welcomed! :)

Thank you ART101 for clearing this up. NO - I never require extra cards, it's just a lovely gift. I also do not get offended if I don't get one. I am participating in this Swap because I wanted to paint skies. Again, thank you.

Personally, I include an extra card for the host as a thank you. The work that a host puts into hosting is a big responsibility, and I appreciate that fact that they are willing to take it on! Viva la 4th card! :)

I'm glad to know my cards arrived on time. Sometimes the post takes a lot longer than you'd think...

The art that's I'm seeing sure is fab - what a great swap this is!

big toe, what do you mean about 'full set'? The fourth card is simply a thank you gift that some participants choose to send; it is not a requirement. In my experience, about half to three-quarters of the swappers send either a 4th card or bits and bobs as a thank you. (It may be a higher percentage now; I've not hosted in quite a while, though I hope to get back to it soon.)

Perhaps at other sites, swappers are required to send a host card...? Here, it is not a requirement, so unless a host makes a card to trade with every player, she/he may not get a card from each swapper.

I'm going through the pages, admiring the skies and noticing that many are showing the warm weather skies. I had to laugh when I got to Sabrina's snowflakes, which are great, because we had snow here today, too, and I'm sitting like the little guy with his shoulders hunched because it's drafty in here! *shiver* Brrr! Spring in Ontario!

Lol I had to do warm weather skies because we don't have much else here! :D We've had rain this week, though. Guess it makes sense you guys are getting snow. I'm bundled up and it's 59 degrees, haha. Californians are weaklings when it comes to temperature.

Jean

I, instead, wanted to run away all this snow and thought exotic warm places! The spring is not far away, sun is trying to melt the snow piles but still it keeps snowing more. Five months snow and cold weather is enough for me, I'd be more than happy to see the white stuff gone and green everywhere. Summer I miss you so!

:spinny:Hello everyone! First, I will say that the cards are amazing. Waiting for a few more, but I'm choosing to wait as long as they PM me on time for my addy so don't worry. Normally, I wouldn't do this but since I've been in and out of the hospital, it's only fair to those who have PM'd me and I couldn't respond right away.

Second, thank you all for posting on here, it's wonderful to see people excited and helpful on the thread. SUPER BIG THANKS!:notworthy:

Third, I'm in Nebraska, last week it was 70 degrees, today there is snow on the ground and it's started snowing again. We don't care about the temp because IT IS Nebraska and that's just to be expected. However, I've had to dream of being back in St. Thomas many times....just to take away the blah's. :swoon:

I certainly hope you are all well and ready to receive some skies!!!!:jiggy:
