Cute idea, I'd like to join, althoug I'm not sure what you mean by no colored in images? To me it sounds like no drawing a door and then coloring in it in... but that's not right is it?

Elena
05-19-2008, 08:58 AM
Welcome kristinized!
No colored in images refers to printed images, like from clipart, that are then draw over the lines and colored in. I hope this explains it.

I always love your topics! May I join please? Also, can the door be openable to show something behind it?

Elena
05-22-2008, 08:57 AM
Thanks for joining redplantlady. I don't want to limit creativity here, so yes, the door can be openable, as long as it is all hand drawn.

05-22-2008, 12:58 PM
I have a linguistical question.
In what is a doorway different from a door?
Can I also have a visual example, please?

Thanks for bearing with me :) (still haven't even signed up, but this looks so interesting)

Elena
05-22-2008, 02:00 PM
stellacometa, you can look at the link I have in hte first page. A doorway is like an entrance, it is what leads to the door.

I just dropped mine in the mail slot at work, and then found out they pick up the mail at 10:30am. I'm crossing my fingers that they get there in time. I've scanned them and will upload them when I get home tonight. I was up into the wee hours of the morning finishing cards. I think I've learned my lesson on signing up for too many swaps. :spinny:

Elena
07-28-2008, 02:58 PM
