View Full Version : Official Sticker-a-thon Thread!

07-12-2011, 01:56 PM
Once again Just Ducky and KESagers are hosting another fun marathon of
Power to the STICKER... we all have them... lots of us use them.... some don't like them at all

So if you are a Sticker person of the Sticker personality... and you like to Stick it to it..
in a nice way ya know...

. . .this marathon will begin on Thursday, July 14 12am (think Wednesday 12 midnight) ... YOUR TIMe
everyone around the world will be starting at 12am by their clock... and everyone will finish their cards at midnight .. midnight your time...Monday, July 18th.

So you can do a bit of prep work before YOUR start time, but shouldn't make any cards till your start time...

There are many beautiful stickers...
that can be used for ATCs......Inchies.... Chunkies and all kinds of fun art...just make sure there is a sticker stuck somewhere on your art. (Homemade stickers count too.) Once your art is completed post it here - in the official thread and if you want to trade send a Private Message to the person you want to trade with. (Trading should be done with private messages not in the thread.) Trading can be fast and furious so if a card gets traded out from under you there are no hurt feelings - it's just part of this crazy madness we call a marathon.

The rules are simple - somewhere on your art there must be a sticker and yes - postage stamps and rub-ons count!

Since we just had an inchie-a-thon that had complete instructions for how to post an image in the thread here is the link to that marathon for those instructions:


. . . here's to a sticky good time!!!!

07-13-2011, 02:33 PM
I just finished these for the LAT but they really have "sticker" written all over them since they are made with packing tape. ;) I see if I can figure out a way to use them in this marathon.

07-14-2011, 03:45 PM
And these:

07-14-2011, 04:43 PM
What fabulous work everyone

07-14-2011, 05:35 PM
I must confess - I played hooky today. It's a perfect summer day and we usually don't get too many of them so I went shopping with a friend. We walked around our favorite shopping village and the craft store there is going out of bussiness. Everything was 60% off. So sad to see them go but I made out like a bandit. Not to many stickers but I found a couple. Deep blue sky and fluffy clouds and not too hot - a great day to get some fresh air. So cool to come home and see more great art too! Now it's back to my craft room to see what I can create. :)

07-14-2011, 06:55 PM
More vintage images with stickers:

I did manage 4 cards... these are what I call my serious side... ART stickers by a famous guy... French artist Paul Gauguin.... oh the 2 pale ones are not quite this pale looking.

07-14-2011, 07:08 PM
Cool cards, everyone!

I found my stash and am trying to get something to work. I will succeed. I will! LOL!

07-14-2011, 07:13 PM
Cool stickers and cards Ducky!

Yay for finding your stash HHC!

Mouse That Roars
07-14-2011, 07:14 PM
Managed one more before Yoga class today:


Had to do at least one steampunk one. Yes, those are real watch gears.

07-14-2011, 08:08 PM

Will trade for ATC or inchies (can be smaller set).

07-14-2011, 10:58 PM
I have some wonderful vintage stickers, mostly of puppies and children, but they are not sticky on the back. How careful are we being on the definition of a sticker? They are really cute, were given to me by an older lady (that must be really old) and I know you'll like them if they are acceptable. If so, I'll run them through my xyron and presto, they will be stickers.

Mouse That Roars
07-14-2011, 11:04 PM
Hey, Ducky, glad you like the steampunk card. For little thin gears Mod Podge or Tacky Glue usually holds fine. If it's a bigger, heavier gear ( like the Tim Holtz ones or a clock gear) I use Glossy Accents -- best metal glue I've found so far!

07-14-2011, 11:08 PM
I see the answer to my question is at the beginning of the thread! Oops! I should have read it all.

07-14-2011, 11:42 PM
Two flowers in a yellow pot. Postage stamp flowers.
Single stalk.

07-14-2011, 11:53 PM
Egod - you are right - a Xyron makes it a sticker - just PM'd you before I read your second post. :twitcy:

Miloccpep - those postage flowers are way cool - great idea!

07-14-2011, 11:54 PM
OK - last one from me tonight - gotta get some sleep.:sleep:

Capture Time

Night all!

Just Ducky
07-15-2011, 12:11 AM
egod... glad you found your answer... and I sure would like to place an order for a Puppy one.:D

thanks Roaring Mouse... think I gonna try some of my stash of gears... I got glossy accents will try that..

nite nite KES... see ya in the morning...

Milo... you coming up with some really great ideas... I will be knocking on your door..

07-15-2011, 02:03 AM

07-15-2011, 02:06 AM

07-15-2011, 05:54 AM
Kitty - those images you are using are so pretty!

Miloccpep - Love that Ladybug - I think I have some little lady bug stamps I have to dig out.

Jonquil - really like the way you do those Kimonos - the patterned paper really looks like fabric.

Short night for me but there is a nap in my near future. Off to catch a few more winks.

07-15-2011, 09:07 AM
I am so annoyed! I have been fighting a headache all day and have not done anywhere near what I planned - only 5 fairly simple cards so far.
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/4_scan0011.jpgSTAT II #1
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/4_scan0012.jpgSTAT II #2

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/3_scan0015.jpgSTAT II #5

Now off to bed to get rid of this headache. I need to make LOTS of cards in order to trade for the beautiful work being shown in this thread. Goodnight!

07-15-2011, 10:08 AM
Have to try and make some tonight.
Just wasn't up to it last night.
Our house was like a sauna. The humidity was so high yesterday. Today feels better.
Great Art everyone. Now just have to make some so I can trade before there is nothing left to trade for. Have a great day creating and see you all tonight.

Just Ducky
07-15-2011, 10:46 AM
mornin' ya all... or should be saying nite nite to my "over/under there gals"

07-15-2011, 11:20 AM

keep up the good work all, I'm enjoying looking at it. ;)

07-15-2011, 12:50 PM
*sending PMC lots of feel better vibes*

Ok, I'm off to create. :)

07-15-2011, 01:49 PM
My stickers aren't talking to me. :dull:

So I think I'll go through my images and grab my xyron to see if something jumps out and wants to get made.

Hey, do my decorative tapes count as stickers?

07-15-2011, 02:13 PM
Donnacr and Paintmancolors - I hope you both feel better soon.

HHC I think decorative tape is a sticker - go for it!

07-15-2011, 02:14 PM
Got my morning nap and all is well. Here are 2 cards made with some leaf backgrounds I painted awhile ago.

White Orchid

07-15-2011, 02:52 PM
A few from me today:

07-15-2011, 04:36 PM
I had great difficulty getting these up. Finally 2 fish cards with watercolor background are up in the a-thon gallery.

07-15-2011, 04:50 PM
And now, three of the dog/people ones. The "go advanced" link is not working for me, but I seem to be able to upload to the a-thon gallery okay if a bit slowly. If I can get them on this site later, I will.

07-15-2011, 04:52 PM
How do I go to the athon gallery when I am not uploading something?

07-15-2011, 04:57 PM
egod, when you're in Gallery, if you scroll down a bit it's between Other Art and Rollos. :D

07-15-2011, 04:58 PM
Well... I've been xyron-ing things. But still haven't made a card.

But I got a couple of ideas. :)

07-15-2011, 05:30 PM
Cynthia - Love your In A Dream!!!!

Egod - no worries - just let us know when you upload and we'll take a look. Cool antique sticker cards BTW!

Ideas are good HHC!

Here are a few more from me:

Vintage backgrounds with sticker embellishments.

07-15-2011, 08:20 PM
These "a-thons" make me live for the weekend even more! I will definitely be playing, though I might have to post toward the last hours. My daughter (my baby) is turning 5 tomorrow.

Jonquil, I am to in love with your Asian cards. Hope we can trade. What themes do you like especially and I'll make up something to tempt you! LOL


07-15-2011, 08:26 PM
Ah Ha- here you all are..........can I jump in and play. I have hundreds of stickers but haven't used them for so long I hope they will still 'stick". I'll post some cards later once the muse takes me. :D

07-15-2011, 09:04 PM

07-15-2011, 11:07 PM
There are so many beautiful pieces of art showing up here. Hopefully I'll have a bit of time tomorrow to play. Great a-thon so far!

Mouse That Roars
07-15-2011, 11:35 PM
Well, it's been a busy day here, so I only got a couple finished:



I did have a really good find at a garage sale today -- an old "simplified" school dictionary. Pages are worn, some are tattered & the binding's giving out, so I won't feel so bad about taking it apart. The text on the "Springtide" card is from it.

07-15-2011, 11:36 PM
Nice cards HHC and Ducky! Hope you can play Fantasia! Love the colors and texture on Springtide!

Movie night here - watching Alice in Wonderland - I hadn't seen it yet. I have 2 to upload when it's over.

Mouse That Roars
07-16-2011, 12:18 AM
Ah, one more done before I turn in:


I'm still amazed this one turned out as well as it did. Every time I thought it was going good I'd make a stupid mistake. Good thing I can think on my feet & come up with creative solutions. (hence the distressed title sticker! :twitcy:)

07-16-2011, 12:27 AM
loving the sticker art! those inches are sooooo cute, Kes!
all the sticker artsy stuff is such fun and pretty....doesn't even look like stickers.
hope to play some tomorrow....ya'll have fun now, ....the "Ducks" on duty.

I have made some cards today for the a thon. There has been some marvelous cards showcased here - have just loved scrolling through the thread. I may not be back here for a while as I am away from home all day tomorrow but will certainly check in to see the eye candy. Great work Ducky and KES - great fun and an excuse to play with stickers which I put to the back of my cupboard. While I was making the cards my husband looked over and said ....I thought you shouldn't use stickers on your cards.....he loves to look at the cards I have made <bless him>

Piglet has a new Home
Dragon has been claimed
Fly is on her way to her new home

07-16-2011, 04:57 AM
And I made one 4 x 4 card as well. I really would like to swap this card for another 4 x 4 if anyone is interested. I have not put any danglies on this one as I think it looks lovely without it.

This has been traded. Thank you so much for the interest,

07-16-2011, 05:18 AM
Goodmorning to you all! I made one card this morning. And now I have a selection of stickers on my desk.... and have no clue what to do with them :(. From hearts to feet to ice-creams to felt bees.... maybe I will get an idea later :idea:

07-16-2011, 10:09 AM
Good Morning all, thanks Ducks for all the chicken soup,(tasted kinda like duck soup to me, hmmm) It helped wash down the "happy Pill".;)
and Hollygirl, you posted the nicest things about me, thank you so much, that works almost as good as a "happy pill".:yes:
Hmmmmm, seems I'm fixated on happy pills...........well, talked to Doc ,see him on Mon. and he said to take them as often as I need, before I can see him.
........................................this old hippie's gonna feel like she's back at Woodstock. And I'm printing a disclaimer now; I am not responsilble for any cards I may make. ;)

07-16-2011, 10:21 AM
Wonderful cards while I slept! I need to do some clean up also - don't really have any room left to work either. Paintmanycolors - hang in there! I hope the Doc can help on Monday.

So far this morning, Yahoo has locked me out of my mail and my dogs ran away, requiring me to search for them. They finally came back and went to bed for the day having frolicked through hill and dale--mostly hill and ravine! I will make cards after I cool off. If anyone wants to contact me, do it through here.

07-16-2011, 12:30 PM
I'll try to post yesterday's cards on here again. Both are traded to Jonquil and KESagers.

07-16-2011, 12:33 PM
Okay, maybe one set at a time is all it wants to do. Middle card is now traded.

07-16-2011, 12:44 PM
Wonderful cards Vicky and Egod! Egod - I'm glad your sweeties came back - I'll bet they are having a good nap now.

07-16-2011, 12:54 PM
Here is my first 4x4 chunky page (will be adding some chunkiness). Its been so long since I've used stickers, it was fun to play with them again.

07-16-2011, 12:58 PM
Cool chunky Fantasia!

My first of the day. Pretty proud of these as almost everything in the collage is a sticker. Blurring is from the dimensional stickers.

07-16-2011, 01:17 PM
power to the poor STICKER.... and funny CAthy1, your husband wondering why you are using stickers... boy the lowery sticker, sure does have a bad rap sheet...

BUT we can all be quilt FREE this weekend... stick it to it...

and some really great cards I seeing... Jonquil is on a super Oriental roll... a girl can never have too many Kimonos... lovely colors..
egod... dang gal, it's too hot out there to be on puppy hunt.. but glad they all home and nappin'....
a sticky welcome to Hobby Bear and hi, Vicky we all gonna stick together .. Fantasia great chunk, day on a Island... sure sounds fun...

ok KES.. I got my day chores done and gonna hit the art ? table see what happens.. thinking of doing a few puppys.. and maybe a cat or two... I know I gotta do something, as I seeing awhole lot I wanna trade for... so I out-of-here... stickers to stick and papers to cut...
keep on eye on that Painted colors gal... we may have to peel her off the ceiling before the day is over... them happy pills ya know....:twitcy:

07-16-2011, 02:04 PM
Howdy Ducky! What's it like up north there? We have one more nice day before it gets humid again. :)

07-16-2011, 02:31 PM
I just love the sticker art. Ducks, your right, stickers have gotten a bad rap, they've come a long way from the stickers we used to know back in the day. gosh, some of the stickers I've seen here are works of art in themselves!

managed to get two done.....................now time to put old movie on and rest.:yes:
"Garden Fairy"
"Rainbow Fairy"

07-16-2011, 02:56 PM
Four more if I can upload them. The "Twice as Nice" has a background that is almost the color of the sticker. It looks almost white here. Scottie is on hold.

07-16-2011, 03:07 PM
I am just on my way out the door for the day and going out to dinner tonight so I am jealous of all of you who will get first dibs on the cards made in the next 24 hours. BUT I will still have a couple of hours on Monday after work to make cards. Great idea to have an extended time so we can fit life around art LOL. Fabulous eye candy - thank you Ducky and KES for hosting - this is the first a-thon I have been in and I am addicted:D

07-16-2011, 03:08 PM
One of the best things about this stickathon is that I'm using a lot of stuff up...which means I can buy more. :)

07-16-2011, 03:09 PM
And these....

07-16-2011, 03:18 PM
I thought I was missing something this weekend..... we are missing the Baileys and the chocolate! That's is why we need aspirins and happy pills instead :twitcy:

Baileys anyone?

07-16-2011, 03:20 PM
Cynthia you are rocking out the cards! Cathy - enjoy your dinner. Egod those vintage stickers are really wonderful. PMC your cards have such pretty color to them. I'm enjoying all of the new cards this afternoon. I just assembled some more backgrounds - now I need to see how I'm going to use them.

LOL - Kitty's buying!

07-16-2011, 03:44 PM

Just Ducky
07-16-2011, 06:26 PM

This always happens at some point in the marathon and I start losing track of where my cards are in the thread - but I think I've kept my gallery up to date as to what is still available. :)

Will trade for other art.

1. Stick Em Up
2. Dirty Rotten Scoundrel

07-17-2011, 03:17 PM
Blanche, I think they're a riot! I've always had a thing about Lego people and used to steal them from my brother's sets. He never got his massive Lego castle together, but somewhere I still have the knights.

Question: are we going up to Monday or through Monday?

07-17-2011, 03:22 PM
Oh, and some cards. (My head is still in the artistic clouds.)

07-17-2011, 03:27 PM
And these....

07-17-2011, 03:46 PM
So cool to check in and see so many new cards!

The good news is that WE ARE GOING THROUGH MONDAY MIDNIGHT - your time. :D:D:D

It was requested and seemed like a good idea to make this a nice long one so that we could catch some people at either end that can't play weekends.

07-17-2011, 04:19 PM
Yay for all the way thorugh Monday!

Cynthia, that's too funny!
Secretly - When culling down all of my son's childhood toys - He's grown now - I kept the Legos and the Playmoblie toys. Those were my favorites!

Wish my men folk liked salads because that is what I would make. Good cold salad with tall glass if Ice tea with lots of ICE.
My house is so sticky that even plain paper sticks like stickers. :biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh:

Fun cards, everyone!

You and your heat waves! We've been at 61 degrees all afternoon, and raining, raining, raining. We haven't had a really WARM day yet this summer.

So... I'm willing to trade my weather with anyone's too warm weather for a few days! Any takers? ;)

07-17-2011, 06:19 PM
Three more: Portal, more like my usual work; and more cat and dog stickers.

Portal is now traded.

07-17-2011, 06:49 PM
Wow HHC - that seems so cool for this time of year. The humid air is climbing up through NJ today and the rest of the week is to be in the 90's. No triple digits yet this year. I remember marathoning last year and Sniisk and Evalila were so very hot - hitting temps that they never reach.

07-17-2011, 06:55 PM
I finally am joining in this Sticker A-Thon. I nearly forgot about it.
Here are some that I finished up:

07-17-2011, 06:57 PM
It's not too bad here today but we are supposed to get some hot & humid weather in the next few days. I guess I'll have to do any 'work' early in the morning. I live for hot and humid weather because the winters can be so cold.

07-17-2011, 07:08 PM
Welcome NYJunkie!

These are 4x4 inches - chunky size but thin - no thick embellishments. Danglies are real tea bag tags with different quotes on them - traded as is. Will trade for other art.

07-17-2011, 08:23 PM
So cool to check in and see so many new cards!

The good news is that WE ARE GOING THROUGH MONDAY MIDNIGHT - your time. :D:D:D

It is hovering around 100 everyday here with only sprinkles of rain for relief. I have so had enough of it. The leaves on the redbuds are turning yellow and falling off. Looks almost like fall. Temperature is not supposed to go below 80 at night for several days. Electric bills keep mounting!

Hope you like it.

I love it! The pink and black give it such a great retro feel - thanks so much!

07-18-2011, 07:55 AM
Lots of cards while I slept! Enjoying all of the creative ways we've used stickers this time around. :) I've answered my PMs but I need my morning nap and then I'll be back with more art ready to trade and make the most of the last few hours of the marathon.

07-18-2011, 08:40 AM
My cards would be in the gallery.

Now off to bed before I turn into a pumpkin. I will be eagerly awaiting what you all create while I'm asleep. May the Muse be with you all, Goodnight.

07-18-2011, 01:27 PM
That's a wonderful selection of cards Donnacr and Jonquil. Miloccpep your holiday cards bring cool thoughts on a hot summer day. Cathy love those postage stamps and Kitty you packing tape transfers make me want to try some more. So glad you all could play! Still have a few hours here so I'll see if my muse has anything left. ;)

07-18-2011, 02:27 PM
Here is another one - I used rub-ons on this one.

07-18-2011, 02:37 PM
Sandy...love that card!! Vintagey and photos and all!! Very cool!

07-18-2011, 02:47 PM
I agree - great vintage collage!

Here are 2 with vintage backgrounds from me:

07-18-2011, 03:19 PM
A last few from me. I'd hoped to do twice as many, but these were stubborn, needing several attempts each.

07-18-2011, 03:42 PM
Thanks so much - I am ahhing and ohhing over everyone else's cards!! They are all fantastic

07-18-2011, 04:02 PM

It has been such fun - thanks to out hosts and to everyone for the compliments and fun

07-18-2011, 06:08 PM
Two more before I have to go fix supper.

Royal Mail

Shades of Blue

07-18-2011, 07:34 PM
A folded kimona, Japanese text, mounted on origami paper. Xyron stickers. This is a bit hard to see. It is more distinct in real life. Your shade of blue is very beautiful, Kristin.

07-18-2011, 08:19 PM
That's such a pretty fold Egod!

07-18-2011, 10:21 PM
Here are my last 2 for the marathon. The pictures are of my Calvin. :)

Cat Nap

Feelin Feline

I'll check in again before I call it a day.

07-18-2011, 11:15 PM
Time for me to say "goodnight" here. I had a great time marathoning with everyone and the art was wonderful! Thank you for playing and trading and making this so much fun. A big "Thank You" to Ducky for co-hosting! :D

A reminder that it's expected for trades to be mailed within 2 weeks. If you won't be able to do that please communicate with those trading with you.

I still have some availables in my athon gallery and am happy for any last minute trades tomorrow.

If anyone on the West coast is still with us - enjoy the last few hours. ;) I hope everyone has a great week ahead!

07-18-2011, 11:19 PM
One last card before goodnight! Citrical background. All the rest is stickers!

Last ones for today. BIG THANKS to KESager & Ducky for hosting -- it's been fun!

This one was actually done late last night. I fell in love with the little crab sticker when I saw it, so this one is staying with me:


And these are today's cards:

ohhh no... Roaring Mouse is holding out on us... but don't blame ya gal, that little crab is a real keeper...
I am 3 pages behind.. so I will be reading back to see all the goodies I missed...

sure glad we had KESagers for our hostesss cause ol Ducky was mostly missing these last days... but I got a written excuse... my sales slip fer the biggie bad boy TV we had delivered Saturday, and then spent most of Sunday with the Dish Network guy... but finally everything is up and playing... wow.. what a tv.. even is 3D... and I ain't got no 3D to watch...
oh and today ???? I ended up spending ALL day today rearranging my whole livingroom, this tv thing is so big I had to change the whole room to make things fix....

I just so sorry that I didn't get to play as much as I really really wanted too... but sure looks like a lot of great art and trading going on... thanks everyone for playing...

07-19-2011, 12:03 AM
Thank you, Kristin and Nancy for hosting! :wubclub:

This was a fun weekend, and while I didn't get a lot made, I sure enjoyed the eye candy! :)

07-19-2011, 07:22 AM
That would be right....no-one even missed meeeeeeeeeee.....*cries*

I hate it when family funerals interfere with my special creating weekends...and ALL THOSE MICE CARDS!!! damn wonder if any are still available!!!!

07-19-2011, 07:44 AM
Mouseit - I'm so sorry to hear you had a funeral to attends. We did miss you - very much - but I knew you had a good (if not sad) reason not to be with us - otherwise you would have played all weekend. Hugs to you and your family.

07-19-2011, 07:50 AM
Kudos to Egod and Mouse for finishing the marathon in style!

It looks like our next marathon is an APC-a-thon:


Sounds like fun!

07-19-2011, 08:30 AM
Thanks Kristin and Ducky for hosting! I managed some cards and traded some too!

07-19-2011, 08:36 AM
It was indeed fabulous fun. Mine are all packed up and ready to go in the mail (just need 2 addresses) so they will go out tomorrow.

07-19-2011, 08:44 AM

Thank Kes, all is good, I think I know how I want my funeral to go now....LOL
I think I am going to start a book on what I have done in my life time too....I didn't even know my Aunt had an Order of Australia for Volunteer work,...go figure....

You girls sure have created some lovely stuff in here without me...*sigh*OK OK when's the next one going to be..... I have next Friday off....LOL giving me along weekend....

What a-thon is next????

07-19-2011, 09:26 AM
Thanks to KES and Ducky...this was a fun a-thon, even though I too didn't get to create as much as I'd hoped. There have been some really wonderful projects shown here!

I've done my first 2 a-thons recently, and I do believe I'm hooked!

Thanks again ladies!

07-19-2011, 11:00 AM
KEsagers and Just Ducky thanks for hosting the fun Sticker-a-thon. I wish I could have played more but where my computer is it was just to hot to sit there. Love all the trades I made and even have made some with new trader to me. Thanks. My cards will be in the mail on Thursday.

07-19-2011, 02:48 PM

Altered playing card athon July 28-31st. Oddbreed and I are co-hosting. I'm not sure if there are any others before then.

It may take me a couple of days to get these all out. I hate when I forget to buy extra stamps before an athon. :eek:

07-19-2011, 04:15 PM
All my envies were mailed today. :)

07-19-2011, 09:29 PM
Thanks Ducks and Kes for hosting. Wish I could have made more cards and play more.......but seems like everyone had such fun and good sticker art too!!
got some stickers saved for next one;)

All of my trades from this A-Thon are now on their way to their new homes!

07-21-2011, 04:20 PM
I got a fantastic card from "Mouse That Roars" today. And I got all the rest of mine in the mail except for Singapore. I'm still confused and waiting for an answer from her on that one. Never again will I do three a-thons in two weeks. My brain can't handle the secretarial work. I hope everybody gets what they ordered! I did enjoy the swap. Thanks for hosting, Kristen and Ducky!

07-22-2011, 10:16 AM
Finally Singapore is ready to go and soon my mailbox will be flooded with beautiful cards.
What a good idea this was!

07-22-2011, 01:52 PM
The last of mine went in the mail today. :) Now to get my craft room cleaned up and ready for APCs!

07-22-2011, 02:47 PM
What are ACPs? Can you tell I've been mostly away for a while?

Mouse That Roars
07-22-2011, 03:27 PM
Recieved cards from Egod & dsign49 -- thanks, y'all!

07-22-2011, 06:36 PM
APCs are Altered Playing Cards like this:


Usually there are a few uploaded every day in the gallery - great way to get ideas. Also here is an ongoing thread that has some samples and a complete explanation.

07-23-2011, 09:36 AM
All my cards went in the mail on Friday except the Inchies I owe Paintmanycolors and one for Ducky.

07-23-2011, 01:51 PM
Lovely cards from NY, New Zealand, and Australia today. Fun at the mailbox in rural Arkansas! I love the world wide aspect of trading.

Mouse That Roars
07-23-2011, 03:51 PM
And today cards from Cathy 1 & jonquil arrived -- both are gorgeous! Thank you!

07-23-2011, 08:13 PM
Happy mailbox today and I cleared a path on the floor of my craft room - life is good!

07-23-2011, 08:21 PM
Ok, all my cards are in the mail, and now I've started getting STAT mail. :) Trying to decide if I should open it all now or save some for tomorrow....
