Vicky, my four cards went in the mail to you just minutes ago. One is for you, your choice. Please check inside the return envelope. I put a little something in there for covering the cost of postage back to me. This was a fun swap!

04-29-2008, 02:14 PM

I havent even started mine as i have been busy doing other swaps. So I have got to get moving too. LOL.:wideeyed:

04-30-2008, 04:50 PM
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!

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.

05-01-2008, 12:27 PM
