Okay - I just read all the posts but don't see any mention of me. I am a Laura too. I guess there are 2 Laura's that owe postage. I was pm's that I owed .74 cents. So I sent Susan $1.00 on Monday. Did she receive it yet? Is my package going to be sent this week? Just checking. I know this is confusing but hopefully it will all be done soon.
Thanks
Laura

Well Laura, if you were one that owed money, Susan will return them when she gets the money. All others have been returned.

I received mine on Saturday. Was very impressed with most of them. I agree with the person that wrote about Idaho - thought that was extremely clever. Will PM some others about theirs also-have been very busy making a Mothers Day book to list on eBay. This was my first swap and I found it to be a lot of fun. May do another, but not one this big! Thanks to Susan and Wanda (and Susan's husband) for all the work it took to put this together. Freyer

I did Arkasas.

And for the life of me can't remember what I put on there.
Other than the state insect which is the honey bee.

The background was an outline drawn out of the state itself.

State flower apple blossom. Tried to find a flower that looked as close as possible to it.

State gem The diamond it also represent the diamond mines they have out there. Not sure what else I had on the card .

Still waiting to recieve mine in the mail. They all sound awesome.


I'm sorry they didn't turn out better. But my printer wasn't working and had to draw some of the images, Not one of my best talents. So I did my best to take a spot to help fill it up. That's also why the info wasn't on the back.

Freyer and Mel, glad to hear you both got yours. I think everyones were good; the ones everyone aren't as pleased with, I'd say most were new at this; they will know the next time. We all started somewhere, and have to be encouraging the new ones. Lisa, I think Arkansas was very nice - glad you put the state on there. And I knew that was a diamond on there.

Email from Susan again. She said all have gone postal, except for Georgia and Washington (no mail today from either of them). I know you have sent the postage, but it just hasn't arrived yet. Maybe it will be there tomorrow (Friday).

An update from Susan.

Georgia and Washington will be mailed on Monday. ALL are postal otherwise. And, if anyone else needs to know about their swaps to email Susan directly at doc23081@aol.com.

Mine haven't arrived yet but I saw a friend's set. Some people put a lot of work into their cards and I applaud their work. Some were sort of disappointing in the effort expended...
Thanks so much Susan and Wanda for all your hard work on this swap. You both did an excellent job of keeping this big job on task!!!

Default no swap yet

I can't wait until mine get here..........I was hoping today but, no such luck........I thought I included a priority stamp on mine for the return. Guess not because they were mailed out a week ago today.
Hopefully the first of the week.
I'll let you know when they arrive.

We are glad that everyone is slowly receiving their swaps. This is by far, one of the more intricate and biggest swaps we have encountered. I must applaud everyone who spent a great deal of time to organize, create and deliver these swaps. 50+ trading cards is big!

However, we think it is unnecessary to downplay anyone's creative efforts by saying that some are not “on par”, or “the efforts not there”. We are swappers. We swap for experience, ideas and mostly for fun. Everyone's skills vary, some may be REALLY intricate, and other may be beginner or even amateurish. Please, before anyone says that others are not putting much effort in these ATC's, please remember one thing:

Those cards might be their best work yet. We all started somewhere, please remember that not everyone is on the same level. To compare one's efforts to another is unnecessary and irrelevant.

Having said that, I am sure everyone worked hard and will be most satisfied by the ATCs that they received or about to receive.

Thank you for your understanding.

Default Got them

Yeah!! I got mine. I have to say I am delighted in them. It was well worth the effort. I'm glad I joined this swap as well as the famous swap. Now I have to make myself a holder from them. Everyone did I good job but, the following were exceptional:

Louisiana
New Jersey
Massachusetts
Tennessee
Nebraska
Illinois
West Virginia
Idaho

I still haven't had a chance to check them all out throughly but, those just jumped out at me.
Have a great night!

Got my cards today....haven't counted them yet to make sure they are all there. If I'm missing any, I'll just make them myself.
Thanks everyone for a really BIG deal and especially thanks to Wanda and Susan. I don't know all the politics involved with Susan but I think this forum has lost a very important and creative member. I'm sorry about that.

Default one more note

I just have to add- I put my ATC's of the states in sleeves in Alpha order. When I tell people I swap ATC's, they always ask,"What do you do with them"? This swap is very interesting and even my husband is impressed by the swap. It is so fun to look at all of the different ideas we stampers came up with and the facts are really interesting!

Thanks for hostessing and thanks to all my fellow SCS swappers for all of your effort- I am very happy with this group of cards!!!

My 8 yo daughter and I are working on a 6x6 scrapbook to use the ATC's with. We will be putting additional items about the states on each page, so that she can use them to learn more about each state.

When I joined the swap, one of my first thoughts was what a great way for her to learn about the states for school, etc. Plus I get to spend fun time with her!

Thanks again everyone for the great swaps!
