05-24-2008, 12:14 AM
Received magical cards from Malinmaskros & VickiZ.

So fun to see all the variations.

BTW: Thanks for the host card, Malin! Love it!

06-04-2008, 03:14 PM
Just checking in to see how everyone is doing. I have made a few sketches myself, but haven't completed any cards yet.
Looking forward to seeing more great work!
Take care all. :wubclub:

06-04-2008, 08:37 PM
I want to go see the new movie, I think it will be just what I need for inspiration!

06-05-2008, 12:14 AM
It totally will inspire you, Stormarela! I highly recommend it. Let me know what you think!:)

06-16-2008, 09:30 PM
Thanks for checking in Manycolors. Glad the whole family enjoyed the movie! Did it give you any ideas for cards? (Don't feel bad, I haven't started mine yet either and I'm the host.)

06-23-2008, 11:23 AM
How are the cards coming everyone?

06-24-2008, 09:22 PM
Thanks for checking in Manycolors. Glad the whole family enjoyed the movie! Did it give you any ideas for cards? (Don't feel bad, I haven't started mine yet either and I'm the host.)
Now I don't feel so bad!

06-30-2008, 03:07 AM
I still haven't seen the new movie... however, I have started on my cards. I've sketched out one with the Lamp post, and another with the Wardrobe. I think my next card will be Aslan, and then I think I will do Witch. I just can't get over her HAIR and the icicle crown. Now that I think of it, I probably could have done 4 cards just on the witch!

07-01-2008, 01:25 AM
Here are my cards, I stopped at 3, and made a hostess card for Jitterbug out of a Map of Narnia I found online.
I painted the 3 with twinkling H2Os, although the scanner doesn't show it, they are very shimmery. The map is edged with silver embossing powder. (I loved that map so much, I put it on the back of the other 3 cards as well.)

07-01-2008, 11:05 AM
Those are just wonderful. Great cards!

07-02-2008, 04:11 PM
With Jitterbug gone, I am monitoring the site. Hope all of u have your cards ready to mail in. The deadline is fast approaching!!

07-09-2008, 10:53 AM
Good job, many colours!! I am sure Jitterbug will be happy to receive them!

07-09-2008, 02:14 PM
Hi all, I am now back in town! Big hugs to Lilbad for monitoring this thread for me.:wubclub:
Wonderful cards have been created while I have been away. I am so glad you all joined in the fun.

07-10-2008, 09:32 PM
After being away for 2 weeks, it was so fun to get all my mail today! Great cards arrived from Stormarela & Indigochicken! How is everyone else doing?

07-11-2008, 11:11 AM
My cards are packed up and are about to leave for the PO! HMT is taking them down for me. Hope they don't get held up, they should just make it if all goes well!

07-11-2008, 11:59 PM
Thanks for letting me know, Ibus. Can't wait to see your cards. Hope you had fun making them!:wubclub:

07-12-2008, 12:02 AM
I had a great deal of fun, thanks!

07-18-2008, 04:01 PM
Hi to all my Narnia buddies! I have heard back from everyone except Ariaya and all cards are on the way!!! Since many are coming from far-away-lands, I probably won't swap all the cards until next weekend. I will keep all of you posted on when I receive cards, etc. Thanks so much for playing. It has been great fun!

07-20-2008, 10:33 PM
Received beautiful cards from Manycolours yesterday.

07-23-2008, 08:04 PM
Lots of Narnia mail came yesterday! :jiggy: Delightful cards from Frogprincess, Citykitten, Ibus & Grammysammy!
That means all cards are here except for ones from Ariaya & I haven't heard from her even with 2 pms. I plan to swap out Fri. or Sat and get the cards in the mail to you by Mon. It has been so fun to see how creative everyone has been (opening doors, glitter, embossing, etc.). Glad everyone enjoyed making their cards.

07-28-2008, 09:24 PM
All cards are swapped out and in the mail! Hope everyone enjoys their returns - it was so cool to see all of them. Please post to this thread to let us know when you get yours.
Wish there was a magic wardrobe to send the overseas cards through so they would get to their owners faster!!;)
Thanks again for playing everyone. I really enjoyed my first swap!

07-31-2008, 12:27 PM
