Then she's a genius because she'll have gotten everyone's addresses. Although I think it would be a bit of a pain to stalk people outside of the US, and especially people overseas.

But if she comes to visit, I'll invite her in for a cup of tea

Well this is embarrassing, there was a old pastel kit from the basement complete with some charcoal and erasers if anyone is willing to have their card come a bit late I can actually make a good card.

Guess I'm too late even though I had it all planned out.
I need to stop overbooking myself with projects.

Next time, I'll do one.

Quick update:

We ended up with 21 participants, including me ...about what I expected.

I've only sent out cards to those I've received cards from.
So, if I've gotten a card from you, one has been sent to you.
If I haven't received a card from you, nothing has been sent to yet.

If I reword it enough times, maybe I'll understand what I'm trying to say :P

I have NOT gotten cards from:
1381461
1713539
1771440
2295827
2337653
2556449
2642380
2683307
7561500

...guess that extension was a bad idea, huh?

Once you get your card/s, feel free to post pics ...or let the sender know so they can post.

Thanks to everyone that participated or expressed interest. Hopefully the Valentine's Day Exchange will have a bigger turn out! I plan on starting it REALLY EARLY! (lesson learned) lol

Whoever gets my card, if you don't have a scanner, I've already scanned my card, so I can post it if you cant.

That means you got mine :D I didn't scan mine cos my scanner doesn't work so if the person that gets mine doesn't have a scanner then they should just describe it in much detail so people can imagine what it looks like.....

>: Truth. It made me lazy... I'll admit it! I was one of those who didn't send it in yet!! >:

It's like 3/4th's done.. Every day I look at the calendar and think "It's a day too late... It's a day toooo late..."

*sobs*

aww... well thanks for letting me know. If anyone else didn't send one, could you also let me know (here or pm). It will make it easier for me to switch up the remaining cards. Thanks :)

I got two cards today. One was from you Cosmic Death. And contained a neato patch. So, thank you sir.

The other was unsigned, but had an unmistakably BizarroJoe flavor. Thank you too.

If either of you want I can scan and show.

As long as I go about thankin' folks. I would also like to thank Renae for putting this all together. What a cool thing to organize. My heart is all warm and squishy deep in the cockles. Whatever the cockles are. Maybe my heart has a penis. Is cockles plural? Does my heart have more than one penis?

Haha, awe, it's ok! ^_^ Could you post a pic? I forgot to scan my cards before I sent them out, like a right numpty. :P

I received a lovely card from BizarroJoe! Thank you Joe!!! Definitely time to be naughty! ;D

I also received a card and some hand drawn stickers from CaptainBen! :O They are freakin' awesome. I'm gonna post the front of the card and the stickers, but I'll leave the penis nativity scene on the back of the card up to your imagination (for now). lol

Yeah, I think you might be right. ^_^ That was pretty decent of Joe and Renae! I'm pretty excited to see the rest of these cards already!

What!?! I was the winner of said lottery!? Omygosh! :)

First of all, it came in some delightful little packaging, made with the same sort of paper used for the card itself, all nice with a little bit of black ribbon. So as I joyfully (and carefully) open it up, the card slides out with ease, and I see the really awesome candy-cane ornament! (which on the inside of the card clearly states (do NOT eat!) The front of the card reads "May your Holiday be As Sweet as you. . . :p At this time I'm feeling really excited about the card, it is SO nicely put together it could be sold under hallmark!

I finally untie the big red ribbon, and underneath that is a blotch of scribbled black marker, with TONS of teeny tiny details in silver pen, and when i say details I mean like realllllll small. This thing must've taken a long time! Theres a stocking that says "you" on it, a candy cane, some mistletoe, a christmas tree, some holly, a candle, stars and little phrases all fit into about a 2.5x2.5 inch spot! Absolutely stunning, and I hadn't even opened the card yet! The picture of it to follow may not do it justice, so I'll have to scan it up later on.

So I really couldn't hold back anymore, finally turn the page and BOOM! its Angry Faic looking right at me, I seriously laughed so hard it was such a surprise! I get to the other side, and it has a cool cutout of a christmas tree with red foil behind it, with diagonal running strands of mini ribbons to boot. The card reads "Dear You, Have a really good holiday! ^-^ - woot! Hope you have a tree or something to hand that ornament on. Best wishes, Cosmic Death" HOLY SHIT Cosmic Death's card!? I felt pretty damn lucky :) Although I don't know if I'm going to use the ornament on the tree, because then I would have to take apart the card!
- - - - -

So given this one of a kind card, I felt I had to share with you all, (and especially Cosmic Death) How awesome the card is, and how great I felt opening it and reading it. Cosmic I can't thank you enough for your hard work on this thing, it truly is special!
