I'm sitting here with a big lump in my throat and my eyes filling up. I can't believe at what I have received today and more to the point why I have received it.
OK I can read the letter and it's lovely and I think its all such a wonderful gesture by so many of you, but I'm feeling a total fraud! I did what I could and it felt so little, (I did want to do more), when the site fell apart at the seams. There were many people putting in many hours of thrit time during those days between the closing of the old site and the opening of this one, and I know everyone did it for the love of the site and the people who have become our family.
Don't get me wrong I am totally blown by the package that arrived here today - I honestly can't believe that I am now the owner of so many unexpected goodies - the whole thing is a blur - shock has definately set in LOL.
To EVERYONE who is named on the letter a heartfelt THANKYOU. I don't believe that I did enough to qualify for all this but I'll certainly not look a gift horse in the mouth!!
I am sure that like myself many of you now find it hard to believe that we haven't been here forever!! Our heartfelt thanks go to the people who have the knowledge to set up the site like this, I know that we will continue to go from strength to strength, what happened only served to make our art community bond together and work towards a common goal. In some wierd warped way Damian almost did us all a big favour when he closed atcards so abruptly, he made us all pull together for a common goal and instead of bickering amongst ourselves we were all able to work together - LONG MAY IT CONTINUE.
THank you all once again.

Kay,you were a great help in collecting email addresses, keeping people rallied, and so forth! Don't think your efforts weren't noticed :)

from what you told me about collecting over 600 emails I think you deserve your goodies - thank you to everyone who put in a lot of effort it would have been beyond me to try anything like what you all have done. :wubclub::wubclub:

Yes...when I was rounding up the list of recipients for the RAK, your name came up on several occasions. Your presence in the Flickr group and the enormous effort you put into collecting info so we could all stay connected did not go unnoticed! Hugs! You deserve it!

How did I miss this big RAK attack? I would have gladly sent something. I must have been snoozing or something. :wideeyed:
