Great! Welcome, you two!:)

egrobeck
11-19-2008, 01:13 PM
so, since these are my first twincheis - I'm assuming the only ruls is that they're 2x2 in size? anything else I need to know? :unsure:

Lily Lemon
11-19-2008, 01:25 PM
Ummm....I think that's it. It's a little easier for me to mail them out if they aren't too bulky in embellishments (but then that's the same for ATCs).

Terri F

Truly AWESOME cards, Messmaker and Lily Lemon!! What inspiration for the rest of us. Those birds wouldn't leave me alone either this weekend. I really didn't have the time, but I had to make one or two twinchies just to placate them. Besides, it was really fun. ;)

Got mine on monday (didn't find time to open till this morning) and they are so fab :jiggy: love them

Thanks so much Lily Lemon for hosting - are you thinking of a round two at some point? :)

Lily Lemon
01-14-2009, 12:14 PM
So glad they're arriving!

I'm not sure about a round 2 of ravens and crows. I did round one owls. If I do a round three, it'll probably be another type of bird. Water birds? Hummingbirds? JAys? :)

goatgoddess
01-14-2009, 01:40 PM
I missed the owl one but will keep a space open for your next one what ever bird you pick. :)

Lily Lemon
01-15-2009, 02:59 PM
I'm ready for the next one!

Ha! I'll get goin' on it as soon as soon as I can after my trip. Just so you all can start planning, I think it's going to be tropical birds or jays (whichever one it isn't will be the next one after that)

egrobeck

Lily Lemon
01-15-2009, 11:38 PM
