I'm so happy to hear you got them Evalila!! I was so worried, it usually takes them less time to travel in Europe. XD (and I'm always worried for my cards, haha!)

Evalila
01-27-2012, 02:34 PM
Actually they arrived yesterday. The mail-man who usually delivers our mail must be on vacation or something. The substitute seems to have a strange system :err: - it looks like he only comes here every second day or so...

Evalila these are amazing!

TxCat

Mailed these last week and hoping the post office doesn't mess things up (they've been screwing up all my overseas mailings for the last month or so...I think they replaced the staff with tinker gnomes!)

Anyhow, here's mine how that I've had a chance to upload scans:

1) The legendary Florida skunk ape. A type of cryptid similar to a yeti or bigfoot, but no one is certain whether it's simply an undiscovered ape living here, a genuine cryptid, or a baboon escaped from the zoo.

2) Land octopus. I collect strange plants and one of them looks like this. I started wondering what would happen if the thing was sentient...and you got this critter.

3) Egyptian swamp gryphon. Back end of a jungle cat and front end of a grey heron.

4) Hippocha. The desert regions of Africa don't seem to have unicorns so I invented one. This guy has the head, tail, and feet of a camel, the body of an Arabian, and the horns of an antelope

Phrixy
02-23-2012, 11:09 PM
I really like that swamp gryphon! How neat and imaginative your cards are!

Evalila
02-24-2012, 03:55 AM
Fab cards, TxCat. Still no sign of the last sets yet. Weīll see what the mail carrier brings today. Hopefully more cards for this swap:D

pixiecorpse
