Ok I have edited..but I don't remember the signup/ withdrawl date..but as the swap is full i don't suppose it matters..:D

Perfect, thanks!

For this one, I would suggest that you have every person 'check in' here before they make cards for others in your group. As much as we would HOPE that everyone finds and joins the new group, there may be some that do not join us. I'd hate for someone to work up a specific card and then have no one to trade it to. It looks like MOST of your group has been checking in on Flickr though, so it shouldn't be a problem

I know it's a PITA to update the list as participants 'arrive' here, but hopefully will save everyone the aggravation down the road.

Chardonnay1965
02-19-2008, 03:49 PM

wonderful to see that we're back and this looks good !! Very familiar and refreshing at the same time... and we're back in the air just in time since I forgot to copy this thread and didn't have a clue which theme's I was supposed to look into this weekend :rolleyes:

--- only the newb under my name doesn't look nice... see how fast a girl can fall from an ATC Guru with lots of experience and high ratings to a newb :twitcy:

awesome cards Linda..:D

Linda4atc
02-23-2008, 11:37 PM
Thank you Chardonnay, I tried to put info about each card in the gallery but all the link shows is the photo. I got some great tips From FF's colorpencil tutorial and I think some of cards show a marked improvement. I also played with an OLD/new technique with Sandymutts zebras. Messy but well worth the effort. I'm planning to have them in the mail Monday. I'll pm when I do.

Chardonnay1965

I am so glad you liked your sewing machines. I was just getting started with beeswax collage when I made your card, and now I am addicted to beeswax. Thank you for letting me experiment on you, and for likeing the resulting card.

I am looking forward to getting my returns. If the cards have gotten as far as the East coast, and you got yours in Maryland, that means I should have mine in a few days. YEEEEEH!!!!
