    Hope you are feeling better. My backgrounds came today! Just to clarify, you want a picture posted of the backgrounds as a group before I start working with them or to post a before and after picture of each card as I finish them? Also,are we allowed to alter the backgrounds in any way?

    Yes, do a before photos. and an after.

    As far as altering, I figure you do have to cover at least some parts. I didnt address that question in my original rules. I dont want to alter the rules now. hahha alter. I could envision someone painting, gesso-ing, glittering. It would be nice if some part of the original background. Could you see someone ripping everything off or covering it with a new piece of paper? That isnt the spirit of the swap. Bottom line, they are yours now, do what you will.

    I received my backgrounds today!! YAY! I am very excited to get going with them. Is it ok to post the before and after pics together (as bunnymther asked...) So that the difference can be seen or now with befores and later with afters?

    I was going to take a before picture and after for each card and post them together - that way you can make a direct correlation between the original background and the new card. Hope that's okay?

    I feel like I already answered this in post 43, but I can see the difference in the questions. So I will reply to each post.

    Sorry I have been very sick since Sunday. I am now starting to feel better BUT, and this is a big butt, my husband is now ill with a high fever. We have to go back to the Cancer institute daily for a bag if Antibiotics. I will be there Friday for about 4 hours and Saturday. They are doing all kinds of tests to find out where the infection is. They think it is viral. Some test results are pending.

    That would be great to have the cards together when you are done.

    So yes, you can post photos now of what was in your envelope. I do think others would like to see what challenges others have been given. We would love when you are done for you to again post the before picture so we can compare. And praise you for making such a brilliant card from an obvious scrappy background.


    I hope you are are not scare away by the scrappiness of them. I really needed to downsize. So thanks for making something beautiful from my mess

    I think I have updated all those who have told me that the envelop has arrived.
