Hey everyone, I wanted to let you all know that Char is having computer problems. She asked me to let you all know. If you need her address to mail off your cards just pm me and I will get it to you. She is hopeing to get it running soon. But if it takes time to fix then you would know whats going on. She will be calling me tomorrow , so I will check here in the morning to see if you need me to tell her anything. TherapyArtist I will let her know your wanting to join. TabLynn and lilbad -- Char will let you know as soon as they get there. I'm sure she will be back on line before she knows it;) Ok folks back to working on your cards. Hugs, Sandy

Up date on Char's Computer.... After checking all the smaller things that can go wrong with a computer. She found out her computer 's mother went out:eek:, so will have to get that fixed. It may be a few days before she is back and running. I'm sure if Char. can she will be popping in to check on things when she see's her dad and uses his comp.;) Anyway thats the lastest news I have. Ok folks back to card making. Hugs.....

TherapyArtist
03-30-2008, 03:53 PM
Yay! I'm in. I just finished a tufted titmouse. It's in my gallery. Pencil with only two highlighted areas of color. Can't wait to do more!

Its darling! I grew up in Maine and I miss chickadees and titmice so much!

Sandymutt
03-30-2008, 08:02 PM
I just popped in to have a peek at your card TherapyArtist. WOW Just outstanding. I love the little tufted titmouse. We have them here also in Mo. They are so cute and fun to watch. Love how you worked in the back ground too on your card;)

Magnolia
03-30-2008, 11:49 PM
I think I'd like a go at this. Might I fill that last spot? (USA)

Sandymutt
03-31-2008, 07:11 PM
Hey Magnolia, With Char's Comp down she is unable to put your name on the list at this time, but there is room for you so count yourself in . She has room for 25 USA players. So no problem. As soon as she can she will get your name on the list. It should be a few days. But she also can check in on her dads comp if her's is not up and running by then. Anyway welcome to the group or ( flock) lol. Looking forward to seeing the birds you come up with. Hugs:jiggy:

Magnolia
03-31-2008, 08:07 PM
Oh! Thanks a bunch!

curbsidetreasure

TherapyArtist
03-31-2008, 08:47 PM
Yipes, guys. I lost my Field Guide to North American Birds! I didn't do the titmouse from that - I get Birds and Blooms. But I want specific birds. Guess it's online time for me. Oh, Gooooo-gle!

Sandymutt
03-31-2008, 11:42 PM
Hey curbsidetreasure, Looks like there is room for you also. I went to check and it shows that you would be the 23th International player, ( She only can take 25 International players). With folks from Aus its unlimited players. So welcome to our growing group. Looking forward to see what birds you will be doing.. When Char gets back on line she will add your name to the list. I will leave a pm for Char so she will know both you and Magnolia have asked to join . This way she can get your names on the list.;). She has checked in with me on the phone and I can give her infor that way too....... Oh TherapyArtist, I hate when I know I have a cool book of animals and can't find it. So know how that is. lol I also go surfing on the web to find cool looking birds and animals. Its a great place to look for wildlife. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Hugs:wubclub:

Hey Kat your in as your the 24th International player. So welcome to the group. LuvLoz your in also . I will let Char know as her computer is still down. She said that if her comp wasn't fixed she will use her dad's over the weekend. Then she will get your names on the list. So know that your already in the group. WOW Char will be so surprised when she see's how this swap has filled up. lol I will be leaving a pm with both your names so she will know also if I don't get to talk to her on the phone before the weeekend. So happy you guys joined and looking forward to seeing the birds you all make for the swap. Hugs...:jiggy:

Sandymutt --

Thanks for taking care of us. I'm really excited about this swap even tho' I'm not a birder. My mother, aunt, and sister are avid birders; I'm a gardener and tend to look down at the plants. But I have absorbed some of the feathered-friend lore. Woodpeckers are among my favorites.

I started with the red-headed woodpecker.

Take care.

WOW kat I love your woodpeckers. They are so cool. TabLynn is right about the 3D look of your cards.;).......If you kat or anyone need Char's address just pm me and I will get it to you ASAP..... So happy that you like my Parrots TabLynn. LOL I love the bold colors of the parrots. They are a fun bird to do..... I'm really happy that you feel i'm doing a good job for Char while she has been getting her comp. fixed. I just want to make sure that everyone has all the updates on whats going on. It will be so wonderful to have our hostess back on line with us again. I know she will be popping in even if she has to use her dads comp. this weekend. Then she can get all the names on the list and do the things in the swap that i'm unable to do for her. So just happy to be here to help do what I can. You know me I love to chat:chatterbox:.

It just makes our day to see you here..... Well I did get 2 more birds finished up. I was only able to up load one as I couldn't get the other to up load in here.

Ok I finished my last 3 birds. So if you would like to see them they are in my gallery. Being my scanner tends to make my cards bigger I'm unable to show them in here as I have went to my limit. Anyway Hope you all like what you see.... Char did pop in for a moment. Not sure if her comp. is back as I have to go back to work so didn't get to chat. Anyway I sure do hope she has it fixed. Hope everyone is having a great week, We are heading into hump-day and closer to the weekend. Oh Boy!!!!:D

Hey IrmaVep, Looks like you just made it in as you would be the 25 International player. So welcome to the group. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with on your birds. So happy that you joined us for your 1st swap. If you need any help or info just pop in a note here or you can pm me. We are waiting for Char to get her comp. fixed so until then i'm here if you need anything. Also if you get your birds done and your ready to send them to Char. I have her address. Just pm me for it. I'm really hoping that she gets back soon. She will get your name on the list as soon as she gets on line this weekend. I will let her know that your joining our group. So have fun working on your cards. Hugs:jiggy:.....

Sandymutt
04-09-2008, 01:38 AM
Well Looks like IrmaVep is Chardonnay1965 last International player. Char had a limit of 25 International players. Those that live in Australia she said it was unlimited . So you folks can still come on in and play. Thanks to all who joined this very cool swap. You all have made it so. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has made. Try to pop your cards in here for us all to see. Or show them in your gallery. This way we can see what we may get in the swap. I have my little birds nest ready for the new birdies to sleep in when they fly in my mail box:cute:

I've finished my birds. They are all in my gallery. I've drawn (pencil) these birds: Tufted Titmouse, Flicker, Black-Bellied Whistling Duck, and a Nuthatch. These are all native to my area except I'm not sure about the duck. Don't tramp through the marshes enough. I drew what I liked, so I hope you all like them too. They're very cool birds in appearance and habits. OK...so I'm a little OCD about birds. I live in an apartment complex and they have let me put up FOUR feeders so far. hee hee So if you want to see 'em they're in my gallery.

Where should I mail 'em? And did you want SAE? (Sorry, my mind is like mud.)

Sandymutt
04-11-2008, 12:49 AM
Hey TherapyArtist, I just popped in your gallery to see your birds. You did a wonderful job on them..... Its fun to watch them at the bird feeders. To see how many different type of birds show up. Boy all the cool birds that have been showing up here in this swap. I love it. LOL .....

Ah, so, an issue with the return labels: I don't know where I'll be when you're mailing out the returns. I might be in Kentucky or New York or New Hampshire. Chances are I'll be in NY or NH (and I'll be returning to one or the other after Kentucky) but I really don't know which.

All the birds were here waiting for me when I returned from my holidays. Thank you to Chardonnay for a fabulous swap, and for x-stitched pretty birdie
Big thanks to: Sanymutt for Hello, a gorgeous parrot, Jean for a lovely Purple bird, Elena for a smart Flamingo (I think), IrmaVep for an unusual Mourning dove, and finally to Lisa Winter for the great penguins
I will leave rep points for you all later tonight.
