I am gonna have to withdraw. sorry. have fun everyone.

03-26-2012, 11:45 PM
My cards are ready! They're brighter in person, the cloud actually has a light blue sky background, it's not white like it looks from the scan. Not going to send them off just yet since there's a lot of time still and I might try making 3 more, but we'll see.

I did realize I wrote "A splash of color" (instead of rainbow) swap on the backs, so I'm going to have to fix that haha. Doh :dull:

03-26-2012, 11:48 PM
Is there room for me? I saw your sample and was immediately hooked. I'd love to do this!

03-27-2012, 10:27 AM

Snowariginal, your lily is super and your girl with the party hair rocks!

04-01-2012, 09:40 PM
Here you go, Onaki. Not as great as you sample but I'm thinking the original of the sample may have been larger (or the artist had better vision than I do!) Hope you like them...

04-01-2012, 11:07 PM
Can I join please? I've got a few done, but am aiming for 9 hopefully.

04-17-2012, 03:02 AM
Onaki, I'll have to drop out of the swap. I'm afraid my cards won't arrive on time- from my experience, two weeks is not enough for mail to get there, and I'd hate to make anyone wait. Thanks for having me! :)
I can do 1:1 trades with the cards I've finished. If anyone's interested, just send me a PM. :)

04-17-2012, 03:45 AM
Okie dokie, thanks for joining :)

:) :)

Leaving points...

05-09-2012, 12:20 AM
@LilaxDragn Ah! That's terrible- I messaged you for a trade-back on your two cards, I must have picked up the wrong two cards when I was packaging everything up, I usually package 3-4 at a time once things are sorted out. I hope no one else received any of their cards in return... if so please message me o__o;

05-09-2012, 01:24 AM
No worries! I have a wonderful sense of humor! I was upset I didn't get my birdies sitting on a tree back. I really liked that one! LOL!! You did an awesome job hosting. The theme was a great idea, you were patient with me through the hiccups, the returns were back quick as anything....awesome! :)

05-13-2012, 10:23 AM
I set down a couple of envelopes when I was packaging them up and a few cards slipped so I accidentally got 2 or 3 envelopes confused on a few cards towards the end. One person has already mentioned they got two of their cards out of 9 cards, replacing the two cards- she already mailed back the other two.

If you'd like to have a replacement card Bartev, please private message me.

A mix up or two is bound to happen once in a while on my end, I'm an ADD airhead lol.

05-13-2012, 10:25 AM
@Snowariginal - I was beginning to worry too, lol. That's a long time for USA-delivery, the postman wanted to keep your cards! Shame on him. XD

05-14-2012, 07:59 PM
Got my cards last week. Sorry, long weekend w/a sick drama queen 10yr old ~ going on 70~ girl! LOL!
Thanks for hosting such a fun swap Onaki!
And thanks to rebecca410, mikesatc, and bubblecup for awesome cards!
