But that's the best part of the card

I saw mine today! While it may not be an official card, Nae was nice enough to give me a free Newgrounds Calander! Wasn't that sweet of her?

Also, she was sweet enough to get a Christmas card for me. Even though it isn't artist-done, it's still filled with holiday happiness.

What? No. Who did it? I think your art is great. If that's it? And I'm not just saying that because I'm trying to win back points after calling you 'sir'.

Shit, I'm sorry. I didn't notice any of your drawings before being an little bias shit right there. Congrats on making it to the calender, and sorry for jumping to bad conclusions.

Also (whoa rapid posting), I got two more artist cards that I just found out I received. The first one is this incredible hand-drawn card by CloudEater. Thanks, Cloud!

Yay!! It's great to see that people are finally starting to get their cards :D

Undertone, I got yours and sent one out to you today.

In case anyone missed it... yes, BizarroJoe made enough cards for everyone participating (and then some!!) THANKS BIZARROJOE!!! ...so everyone should be getting one from him as well as one from someone else. Some of you might be getting your own card back because I'm beyond retarded!! (Hopefully I only did that with one and I've already talked to him.) I apologize in advance to anyone else I messed up on/with! lol

So, here's a break down:

Received/Sent:
USA = 8
Canada = 2
UK = 2
Australia = 1
Spain = 1

Still waiting on:
USA = 4
Canada = 2
Argentina = 1
Estonia = 1

I won't be checking for more cards until Monday, so...
THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE!! and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! :D

...even with my screw ups, it was a lot of fun! I'm already looking forward to Valentines!! lol

I'm happy it managed to get there in time, and to Jonny! Weight off my mind.

Looking forward to receiving my ng bundle, and I adore your sticker collage, cosmic.

Well i'd say theres 3 possibilities at this point,
1. the person who got mine is on vacation or something (most likely)
2. got lost in the mail (least likely)
3.The person who got mine neither has a scanner nor camera (likely)

Thanks I'm glad you like it. It took me a bit of time, but I had fun with it. I might post a flat digital. I realize it might seem kinda lazy (considering all the work you did on your cards), but I must confess I made two of them to send out so someone else is getting the same card. I told Renae mine was mostly digital and I could make two if she had an odd man out.

Don't you fret your worried head anymore, M-Vero... Your card arrived to my hands yesterday.
I'm unable to scan anything during these days (I hope the situation changes after the holidays, 'cause if not... glups.), so I had to take a pair of photoes and edit them the best I could... Sadly, that's not really that much...
Anyway, here's a brief description of M-Vero's card: It's a classical folded page printed in both sides. Here you can see the front picture depicting our troubled fellow... and the following conclusion (I have too google out that "boxing day"... Something tells me it has nothing to do with people fighting.).
The design looked really nice, it's a pity you can't really notice that in the pictures... But that's something I already had assumed. The people who have received my card will have noticed that it's printed in a textured, sturdy quality paper that looks like crap when scanned... I liked it because that way you can only look the picture properly when you have the card in your hands (I sticked to the same idea in my NG Sketchbook 2009 entry.). I won't post that picture unless someone else forces me to do that.
Anyway, good work, Dave. I'm really happy for receiving your card. Especially when I told 'Nae I wasn't really expecting she sends me anything in exchange...
...which brings us to the following post.

ReNaeNae didn't just send meM-Vero's card. Apart from that, she sent me the "lost Santa" card ThePortalGuru mentioned before (BTW, I loved the colored envelopes. They add a classy touch.) and a stash of Newgrounds goodies that have made me a really happy bloke!
You know, it's really, REALLY difficult to me buying stuff online. So getting these NG-related items has been like my very own private X-mas miracle. Yeah, seriously.
Apart of the stuff FifĂ­ is kindly showing you there was an NG postcard featuring MindChamber's Pico Day 2009 art. That's already pinned in my wall, hehe.
May the higher being (if any.) bless you, 'Nae. Thank you very, VERY much.
I also want to greet all the people contributing to this project, and encourage those who haven't participated to take part in similar events. And I'm not saying that because of the presents, I swear!
... Well... I think that's enough.

HAPPY 2009 TO YOU ALL NG'ERS!!!

I recieved the second one yesterday and it fits nicely in the corner of the shelf on my mis shapen desk. Great idea with the popup things, my card was simple and boring. :( I'm gonna take it to the next level for valentin's day though and put one of those musical things in my popup card and there'll be flashing lights and it'll have a motor on the back that makes some guys arm wave back and forth.

Please Note: probably wont end up going to that much trouble when making my card.

I also received one of Joe's cards, so thanks Occluded and Joe! :D
I'm not going to post pics as pics have already been posted of the ones I recieved.

When I made mine, for some reason I was thinking post-card not normal card like everyone else did, hope you still like it though and I'm glad I mailed it right :D

My lovely pop-up card was made by AwesomeSaurus, all made in pencil crayon.

Happy hols, Awesome!
