All others: IŽll cover postage and provide the envelope, but please send in an address label.

Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from!

My cards were posted this morning - u can see them in my gallery - 3 for swap - one for host - hope u like them

05-22-2009, 12:20 AM
Beautiful cards, nomnom!
Guess it will be hard to part with everyones cards! Maybe I should just keep them all ...;):jiggy:

05-27-2009, 08:15 AM
Some cards are already on their way to Germany. I will swap out as soon as I receive them.

05-30-2009, 04:18 AM
GoldenWolfs beautiful minis have arrived today.
Just waiting for one more set....:D

06-02-2009, 09:38 AM
I wonŽt be able to swap the cards today or tomorrow. Since IŽll be quite busy at the weekend and next week IŽm gonna swap and mail the cards on Thursday `cause I want to get these out before the weekend.
This gives the last set another two days to arrive.

06-02-2009, 09:50 AM
Thursday sounds good to me. I'll be looking for them after that.

Hope the last set makes it!

06-04-2009, 04:15 AM
Unfortunately the last set hasnŽt arrived yet. So I swapped out what I had and brought the envies to our local post-office. The guy there didnŽt have much fun with this, would like to know what he did if I hosted a swap with much more players :twitcy:....
So everybody should receive the returns within the next few days, if the postal service is as fast as it was the last few weeks. I hope you all are happy with what you get. Thanks for playing!

06-04-2009, 09:24 AM
Sorry the last set didn't get there. I am looking forward to these though. Also wondered how you are all planning to store these-just put two side by side in a binder?

06-04-2009, 09:49 AM
Is it mine that's missing??

06-04-2009, 10:43 AM
Yes, nomnom, but I hope that your minis will show up sooner or later. Unfortunately I couldnŽt wait much longer with swapping them out beause of the 90-days-deadline and my full schedule next week :( But IŽll let you know as soon as they arrive. Maybe then we could do this as a 1-4-1 trade...

06-04-2009, 10:50 AM
I would be happy to make another mini and trade with nomnom.

In fact if she wants 3 cross stitched ones I could make 3 more.

Maybe we could even work out some kind of reg size trade while we are trading.

Let me know.

06-04-2009, 11:49 AM
I'd be happy to do another one or two to trade so no one is left out. Just let me know. I think the mail travels fairly between us so I could probably have something there by next week.

06-04-2009, 03:20 PM
wow - ladies u r so nice - I'd love to trade my cards with all of u - I just hope they r not lost

06-06-2009, 01:11 PM
