Lol it could've been even a cupcake with eyes! As long as it makes other people go "Uh... what the-- what is that-- WHY would you do that?!"

Onaki, I am so sorry. I'm going to have to withdraw. I have too much RL and not enough crafting time right now.

06-17-2012, 01:02 PM
Mine are in my gallery :D

06-18-2012, 12:28 AM
Of course, welcome to the swap Futureforest :)

Sorry to see you other two go! Thanks for trying to participate :)

06-22-2012, 10:48 PM
There's 10 more days until the swap deadline, how's everyone's cards coming along?

06-23-2012, 08:37 AM
I'm getting too forgetful of late, mine were postal on wednesday so should be with you soon, and they're in my gallery ready for inspection :D

06-27-2012, 03:40 PM
4 Days left to get to me, if you haven't mailed them out to me let me know. :)

06-27-2012, 04:06 PM
Any sign of mine yet onaki? Think they should make it on time it'll be a week tomorrow that I mailed them...

06-27-2012, 06:05 PM
PC uses some kinda extra fast pixie dust on her envies, they fly super quick across the pond! :laugh:

06-27-2012, 08:25 PM
Onaki~ if I promise to put mine in the mail tonight will you wait for them?

If not...I understand, and bow out graciously! Honestly, I just got sooooo swept up with this whole ATC addiction (newbie, as you can tell by my stats)...joined too many swaps, because they ALL are great themes, and have been working maniacally to get them done, along with personal trades, a rabid indulgence with an inchie house~athon this past weekend, oh and LIFE still having to be squeezed in there too! *taking a breath*

I would like to participate, but you as Hostie with the Mostie have the final say!!! :notworthy:

06-28-2012, 02:23 AM
I will wait as long as everyone mails them out within' the next couple of days. Just message me for my address.

If you have to drop, drop the swap now (The ones who I haven't received cards from or emails) Or I will have to leave a neutral itrader. (Not including the ones who have already mailed them out to me.)

06-28-2012, 02:26 AM
Received cards from PixieCorpse 2 days ago, all safe there!
Thank you for the extras. :D

06-28-2012, 03:06 AM
Hehe T I only put pixie dust on the far away ones ;)

Yay! I'm just happy to know they arrived safe and sound Onaki! Glad you like them ;)

06-28-2012, 08:17 AM
aschrisman has withdrawn from the swap.

06-28-2012, 04:20 PM
Ah, not a biggy, I'll remove you from the list. :)

07-01-2012, 11:04 PM
Need to drop out. Sorry. All of the posted cards are gorgeous.

07-02-2012, 12:16 PM
Onaki, Snowariginal & I need to withdraw. We have had a family crisis that has had us away from AFA for the past week and we are still in the middle of handling this situation. I apologize for not letting you know sooner, but this was unexpected and has taken priority!:sad:
Snowa & I will be looking for your next great swap to join.

07-08-2012, 12:25 AM
Waited as long as I could for the 2 players who didn't get their cards to me.
I'll be sorting the cards tomorrow and they should be in the mail by Monday morning. :)

07-12-2012, 05:14 AM
Returns have been mailed out since Wednesday, I'm sorry I couldn't wait any longer for the two people who said they were mailing out there cards so I removed them from the list...

Once you receive your returns, please leave me itrader with you as a Player. And iTrader for everyone else you received cards from! :)

07-14-2012, 12:03 AM
