    Step one: Check. Step Two: Research. Step Three: Test.....

    Thank you! Step one was joining my first SWAP. Step two: I am trying to figure out why my avatar doesn't show up (Is it supposed to show up in the preview?). Step three is this test of my avatar.

    Step four: I just painted my first card. Now I'm going back to the FAQ's to figure out how to make all this work! This is a bit challenging for a newbie... but exciting!

    Do I like to it in this post???

    ...with Ivy circled round,
    I saw a sturdy Oak,...

    Second and third cards completed. Sleeves arriving Saturday....



    "...as big as the Moon and higher,
    I saw the Sun, even in the midst of night,"



    "I Saw a Peacock, with a fiery tail,"

    I'm not sure I'm doing the images as well as possible. The real card has a sky filled with tiny blue dots that don't show up at this resolution. Oh well, I'm learning.

    I'm Ready to MAIL my first set of ATC's!!!

    The mail just arrived at my house. I now have sleeves for my cards, including the fourth and final one shown here:

    (FYI: That whale is SUPPOSED to look like a goldfish cracker....)
    "I saw a Pismire, swallow up a Whale,"

    Come Monday morning, I will get my cards in the mail. ("No post on Sunday." --Harry's Uncle Vernon)

    The ant with the gold fish cracker is a super clever interpretation of the theme.

    I am so glad I could knock your socks off. I am surprised that no one else saw that obvious man who saw it all theme.
