Cool. Sounds good to me.

Sent the PM, yay!

My first Art Forum contribution! I think I should add a little background, though.

It all depends how much postage is for that type of shipping.

Out of curiosity, is there more point in sending the card as registered mail or normal?
The fee for a normal letter should be 0.6 EU while the registered letter costs 1.5EU to send.

Yes. Yes it did. That's what you get for being part of the European Union. Now did you learn your lesson?

Sent my 3 cards off today - should be there in 3-5 business days... Cutting it really close; maybe I should have paid for priority shipping? o_o Included stamps on the inner envelopes good for 1st class shipping within mainland US. If they are going outside the US, you'll have to add extra postage (sorry Renae)!

Mailed. Postage was 44 cents, I hope.

If not, it's gonna be a drag to ride down to the postage office to pay.

I'm giving up all I have to work with at the moment is my pencils and acrylic paint 1. I can't paint there's reason all my work is done on a computer 2. I don't think anyone would want a "happy holidays" written in pencil with some lineart.

Hopefully whoever is lucky enough to get yours will be kind enough to take a picture, or even scan it for you and post it in here! :p

Sent my two today!

I made mine with coloured pencils and a black pen! I just drew it all in lead pencil then went over the outlines then coloured it all in. I posted mine for $2.20 AUD. Hopefully I put all the stamps on correctly.

Has everyone finished their cards and sent them off, then?

Wow, Estonia! Yeah, no idea how long that will take. Did your post office give you any kind of time estimate? Everytime I think of Estonia, I think of that Pauly Shore film, "Encino Man" (aka California Man). Uh - it was made in 1992, so the reference might be lost on youngins... Meh

*mumbles and wanders off*

Eh, I never had the thought of asking for a time estimate....Bollocks

Hah, but I got the reference. I remember when the film was first on TV. We have a kid in class whose family name is Link so you can imagine that fun was had...

Won't happen. Renaenae's taken precautions against that by getting a PO Box.

But what if Renaenae is a stalker?
