    - welcome to the swap and the site. If you have any questions feel free to ask either in the thread or send me a PM

    Ducky - sorry, but Australia Post doesn't seem too efficient redirecting mail within Australia, I don't know how many of the kitties would actually reach you in the US (I am hoping that at least 3 will, though )

    Nerina - mailing instructions are normally included in the first post of any thread. Read this carefully as different Hosts have different requirements.

    For this swap I have asked that you mail all your cards to me, including a large address label (NOT a tiny return address label) and a US $1 note. Don't just leave your cards loose in the envelope - they tend to roll around and get savaged by the mail sorting machines. I use a 1" wide strip of cardboard that is the width of the envelope and I lightly tape my cards to this, some people put them in a greeting card - you will find the method that works for you after a few swaps.
    When your cards are ready to mail send me a PM asking for my address (most Hosts check their PMs regularly but the request may be lost in a busy thread). I have an address book on my computer for people to whom I have sent cards but other people just ask for addresses every time they need them. Again, it is up to you.
    I am glad that you are enjoying the swap and I look forward to seeing what you make.

    Bluesky - you are very welcome to purr on the lurkers' couch but I hope you come and join us.
    Current address is in VARSITY LAKES
    So sorry for dropping off the face of the earth but my computer decided to eat everything that I had entered since Sept 2017 - I have just got it all back (hopefully problem solved)

    Donna - a ? For you. Can I use a global forever stamp when mailing to you? Or do I need to get Australian postage?

    bastcrystal - you need to put US postage on the front of your envelope as that tells the US Postal Service that you have paid for them to do their job. If you put Australian postage on the front it will be returned to you as each countries postage only works in that particular country.
    If you want to include a Global forever stamp instead of the US $1 that I asked for - that is acceptable as I am simply trying to get postage to include in future swaps in which I participate.

    I hope that this answers your question, if not, feel free to rephrase and ask again.

    My cards are ready (stamps, hot embossing, washi tape, chipboard). I'm going to the post office today.

    That's fine, I was just wondering about the postage I will include for mailing back to me. So your answer is perfect.

    Sorry for being MIA but we had a rush visit to Victoria to sign papers to sell our house of 36 years - it was supposed to go to auction this weekend but we had an offer too good to refuse. It is the home in which we raised all 3 of our children - lots of memories and emotions.
    Tasha -
    I love your cards! I think my favourite is the one where it looks as though the cat is peering through the fence.
    electricdesigner -
    you make it very hard to choose a favourite! Each time I looked I chose a different card but, at the moment, it has to be the card showing through the heart cut outs - did you make a complete cat and then hide him behind the cut out shape?
    JazzEars -
    welcome to this site and this swap. I had a quick look at your Gallery and can't wait to see what you make. If you have any questions feel free to ask either in this thread or send me a PM - there are NO silly questions, we all remember being new to the site.

    - welcome to this swap. I love the variety of cats you show in your Gallery and can't wait to see what you make for us.
    Nerina - thanks for telling me that you have mailed, I will tell you when your cards arrive.

    neca84​ - your amazing sewn cats arrived while we were away

    Lara - your cats are gorgeous! I would be very happy to trade for your 5th card if you can find anything in my Available Gallery that you like.
    bastcrystal - I love the humour in your cards. I can't decide which one is my favourite but I am leaning towards the cat in the tin or the French cat.
    I will tell you both when they arrive.

    dithespy - ​your cat filled envelope was the last one in my pile, sorry for the delay.
