    I can be, but usually if we are sending a card home to someone we sent another set to work on. It is a lot of fun. You can see some of the cards posted in the newest thread.

    You can look at the attachments to CRRR7 too, as we are in thread 8. Do you know how to just see the photos or attachments?


    There is a paperclip next to the thread title. If you click on it you can clink on a link to each attachment. Saves you reading through the posts that have only words.

    I mailed off 14 envelopes, and dropped off Jennifers on her car port with some other stuff.

    It looks like I have 2 more mailing addresses waiting in my inbox, and I can mail those in my outgoing mail on Saturday.

    I added a note to Ann, and dithespy envelopes, but not to Nanvan's envelope.

    I bought some new flower postage stamps today. I could use 3 of these stamps cancelled, of course. for a CRRR set project. I am doing a whole APC deck of floral postage stamps. I only used them on the international envelopes.Boutonniere stamps

    Hi CQ5 - for clarification, does this mean you would like me to mail back the cancelled stamps on the envelope you're sending my stuff in, when I send in my cards?

    I guess If anyone has cancelled floral postage stamps, I am getting close to finishing the deck.


    This is a link to some incomplete sets of floral postage stamps, that I need.

    I am watching Tiny Houses right now. I could never do that. My craft room is bigger than a tiny house. I would not have any room for all my trash.

    Jennifer got her stuff at her door, since we live 3 miles apart, and I had to give her a chunky card. Beka said she got hers. So they are coming it. BTW I did mail all 18 envelopes.

    REQUIREMENTS
    There are 2 requirements per card, each card must *use one of the notes card, I enclosed, as background or substrate. Plus each card needs to *use at least one trash to treasure mystery item. You will get 10 items.
    The word *use, yes you can rip it, paint it, turn it around backwards, modify it. But you must *use it somehow. Have fun!

    Yes, you are allowed and even expected to add more of your own stuff to your cards. Layer it up without getting to chunky. The Postal Machines love to each chunky cards. Yum.
    Players also need to be able to post photos of the cards so other players can see the variety of cards made from the same items. We will have some contests and vote on cards so this is important.
    An extra card for a hostess card will be cherished.

    I hope it is just challenging enough. Like my stretch and tone exercise class, its just right.

    Hey, got 18 envelopes of the SAME trash out of my house. What does that say about me? It says I have too many of some items. Ok better math. I had 18 envelopes and sent 2 of most images so now that means I have WAAAAY too much of the same trash.
