Id love to join!

05-31-2008, 11:00 AM
I would like to join too! This is a cool idea for a swap...and it needs more people!:D

My question...does it have to be only characters from the Wizard of Oz...or can we dip into other OZ books for this one?

05-31-2008, 11:17 AM
Welcome Malinmaskros and Chronata...

and Yes, ALL Oz characters are welcome! There are many book characters that are not in the movies, but they are absolutely welcome in this swap!

Thank you both for joining!

05-31-2008, 12:30 PM
awesome! I may or may not use other characters...as there are just so many great well known ones!

I just started on some witches!

06-02-2008, 08:10 AM
I made my first card this morning, I think Im going all girls with this one...


06-02-2008, 11:53 AM
oh cool Malinmaskros! I like your Dorothy!

I went all girls (so far) with mine too!
I may make one more card yet...

06-02-2008, 07:11 PM
Oh those cards are beautiful malinmaskros and chronata!!

06-03-2008, 07:36 AM
I think we think alike, Chronata - Im thinking Dorothy, the Wicked Witch and Glinda too, and possibly the Patchwork Girl.

06-05-2008, 08:51 PM
Ok, Ok, you've tempted me to play too. (I am reading "Wicked" for the first time right now, so it fits with this theme!):spinny:

06-05-2008, 09:59 PM
Welcome joeyj1220 and Jitterbug!

06-05-2008, 10:40 PM
If there is still room, please sign me up!

06-06-2008, 08:50 AM
Welcome our newest addition... Thecoffeeshopgirl! That leave three spots left.

06-06-2008, 08:58 AM
Here is a picture of what I'm currently working on. I saw another post called "design a pony" and thought some OzPonies might work out perfectly for "Oz with a Twist". I know its a 3/3 swap, but I couldn't stop making them! (The bottom two are not completed yet).

06-06-2008, 08:25 PM

06-07-2008, 09:27 PM
Is it too late to sign up?

06-08-2008, 10:57 AM
Nope not too late too sign up! I just added you SallyAnn, welcome!

06-08-2008, 01:34 PM
Your Ozponies have given me an idea, so can I join please?

06-08-2008, 02:35 PM
I've been resisting for awhile, but now that there's only one spot left...can I have it?

06-08-2008, 03:23 PM
Ibus and miss are our last to swappers! Thanks for signing up!

06-09-2008, 07:38 AM
I have two more cards finished, Glinda and the Wicked Witch:

7079 7080

And heres my last card, now I just need a shipping addy!


06-14-2008, 02:00 PM
Those cards are great.

I'll be emailing everyone with my mailing address.

06-16-2008, 08:59 PM
Ok I am not sure if I am doing this right or not... my cards so far are the wicked witch as a cat... and the flying monkey as a flying grandma... is that right or did I misinterpret the theme!

06-16-2008, 10:19 PM
Perfect job GarageBandFan!! cant wait to see them

06-17-2008, 03:11 AM
By some strange twist of fate, the Oz characters were suddenly morphed into the outfits of their collegues. I introduce you to: Dorothy of the West and her Flying Dog Toto, The Tin Lion, Glinda the Scarecrow, and The Good Witch of the West.

These were so fun to make -Thank you for the swap idea, TotolyOzsome! (If any of you have more switcharoo ideas for me, let me know!)

06-17-2008, 10:36 AM
Here are my first two cards... I think I am going to redo the grandma.... I am not satisfied with her face!:err:

06-18-2008, 04:53 PM
Jitterbug and GarageBandFan.... great ideas! very cute!

I am still waiting on two people for cards. I will wait till the end of the week and hopefully they will arrive.

07-22-2008, 08:19 PM
Ok, just wanted to check in with all the players and let them know that it seems that one of the players cards might be missing or delayed, so I will be waiting till friday and then I will mail out the returns. Thank you all for plaing and making such beautiful cards!

07-25-2008, 04:45 PM
Ok... returns are on their way to their new homes. I am still missing one set, I assume the postal workers lost it. :mad:

I hope that eeryone is happy with their returns and join my swaps in the future. Everyone did such a fantastic job on their cards! :wubclub:

07-28-2008, 10:38 PM
Got my fabulous OZ cards today!
First a big round of applause to totolyOZsome...for the cool theme and for sending me such awesome returns!

and thank you to miss, sallyAnn, and liblue! for two fabulous Dorothys and a tin kitty!

07-28-2008, 10:44 PM
Excellent!... they are making their way to their new homes... it was very hard parting with them. I still have hope that my one stray set will show up... so if there are three people from the swap that would be willing to exchange one of the cards they recieved if her cards show up please let me know. I still have my fingers crossed for them, but I didnt want to hold up the returns much longer, since this was my first swap.

07-29-2008, 12:31 AM
I got my returns today great cards... I will be leaving reputation and itrader right now! :)

07-29-2008, 04:34 AM
My ATCs have also arrived--and they are beautiful!
Thanks so much to:
Chronata--Absolutely wonderful Dorothy card!
Miss--Terrific Tin Man card!
Ibus--Gorgeous mysterious Glinda kitty card!

I love them all! Thanks for participating in this swap!

And thanks so much to TotallyOzSome for hosting a swap that was so much fun to do! Great job on your first swap!!

07-30-2008, 11:38 AM
I received my cards as well. Thanks to the host! Thanks also to miss, thecoffeeshopgirl, jitterbug for all scarecrows!!!

07-30-2008, 03:37 PM
Im so envious! I wish I had cards to look forward to as well, but unfortunately, my cards were the ones which got lost. I hope they will show up eventually, even if only as return to sender (which happened to me once before - a lost package came back to me, very beat-up, after about 5 months in a black hole...). Sounds like everybodys getting some great returns!

07-30-2008, 05:43 PM
GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! You'll never believe what showed up in today's mail!!! Malinmaskros's cards!!!!! Oh what a great surprise! Ok, so.... can I ask if anyone would be willing to exchange one of their returns for one of Malinmaskros's cards? I believe she posted them in the thread (minus the "surrender dorothy" one, i have to keep that one!, LOL) Please contact me BEFORE sending out a card, this way I don't have more people sending then I have to swap, LOL Oh this is the best news of the day, had a crazy extra long day at work and this was a nice was to end a hectic day! Do I have any volunteers?

07-30-2008, 06:21 PM
I don't mind working something out pm me and I am sure we can work it out some how. I don't mind paying the extra postage.

07-30-2008, 06:35 PM
Ibus and Kylieluvsart have both offered to exchange a card for Malinmaskros's cards, I need one more person and then I will PM all who are willing to swap for her cards. Thanks so much!

07-31-2008, 09:20 PM
pm me when you are ready

08-01-2008, 09:08 AM
I cant believe they showed up! Fantastic! And I cant believe how kind you are, Ibus and Kylieluvsart, for going the extra mile, so I can have some returns too! Thank you so much!

08-01-2008, 07:09 PM

Youre welcome, Ibus and Kylie! Im still waiting for two cards, but even the wait is fun, when cards sre on the way. Waiting is a horrible thing, when your cards have gone missing - Im so happy (again!) that they showed up, so I can finish this swap!

08-12-2008, 09:32 AM
All of the cards are with me - thank you, all of you (TotallyOzSome too, for hosting, and for making my swap happen too!), sharing your cards is such a generous thing to do, and I really appreciate it!

08-12-2008, 07:14 PM
Excellent!!! Unless someone needs me to leave this thread open, I will ask the moderators to close it. Thank you ALL for playing!
