Momoruth I'll give it just a couple more days. Maybe the are delayed because of the Memorial Day holiday. Everything runs a little off when the PO is closed on a Monday. Should be swapping out soon!

06-05-2011, 06:04 PM

swapped out all the cards yesterday but I am not going to take any chances with the mail. I want to hand deliver all the cards to the PO on Saturday. That way they can check the postage and tell me if I need more or a customs form or whatever. Cards are all so beautiful! thanks for a terrific second swap. tryin' to come up with an irresistable idea for my third.

06-11-2011, 08:44 PM
