Here they are. The fourth card just didn't turn out the way I wanted so will be making another to send but it will have to be a surprise.

The colour scan seems to turn the cards a tealy colour but they are green. I'll be mailing them in the next day or so. I note that mail from New Zealand only takes about a week to arrive international.

Great swap.

Very interesting AxisOfAnarchy. I think you are the first person to do photography for any of the swaps. I'm excited!

I'm an amateur photographer. I love walking around with my camera and just taking some of the most random pictures. Also it seems like Digital opportunities don't come around very often at all. So when a swap allows for it, I usually take advantage of it.

04-13-2011, 04:44 PM
Awesome! I also enjoy photography. Its fun to be able to capture a moment. Can't wait to get your cards in my hot little hands!

04-14-2011, 09:57 PM
One more day, hoping the cards show up :wideeyed:
