Okay, I'm finished. The last two are here (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?u=361) and all will be going postal as soon as I find some ATC sleeves - no one sells them around here at all so I have to wait for swaps to arrive and reuse them!

Craftygirl34
05-01-2008, 12:11 PM
Jules the cards are fab, I love them!

If you are eager to mail, i can put them in sleeves this end as long as they are protected in something waterproof for the journey?

I had my sleeves from 3djean on the net, she is very reasonable.

My shoes and purses arrived on Saturday! Thank you so much to Elena, ScamperSue, and Amyfaerie for three fabulous cards! Thanks to you as well, Craftygirl for a great swap! BTW - I'm impressed with the speediness of the mail delivery from the UK to the USA. Actually that was more rapid than I've seen between cities and towns here that have a mere 30 miles separating them!

Off to do my i-Trader and reppies:-)
