ok ladies... please don't hate me! Trust that I am writing this with tears in my eyes! My post office closes in 1 1/2 hours, and I'm not going to make it! My 2 year old has chosen to make today a day of temper tantrums and no nap! ARG! I fully intended to pack everything up while he napped and then go to the PO when he woke up... but well; the day just didn't go as I had planned!

Anyways, I PROMISE-PINKY-SWEAR that ALL the swaps will go out FIRST THING tomorrow morning.

I swear I am more responsible than this. Ever since I had a child I am late for everything; and it just kills me! It's so against my nature as I am obsessive about lateness.

Thanks for understanding (if you do); if you your ticked off; well...I can't say I blame you! I am really sorry everyone!


Nancy; your items did not come today; so sorry!

I have a few toddlers running around here, so I totally sympathize! I HATE to go to the PO with my kids and cannot imagine making the trip when my 3yr old has had no nap. Hope tomorrow is much better. I cannot wait to see everyones work.

Just to let everyone know in group 2; I hated to see you all get shorted by one card since it was such a small group. So I decided to swap out some of the Donation cards to you. It really doesn't matter if the Nursing home gets some duplicates, they will be thrilled to receive such lovely cards.

The catch is, most of the cards aren't marked... so I guess you'll have to guess who's card you have! Of couse doing a post about that person will be totally optional as they will not be able to recipricate.

Again; Thanks everyone for being understanding... I am off to the PO as soon as they open! Please start posting here as you receive your cards!

Canadians: I will email you on Sunday with the cost of your postage and you can paypal me or send a check... thanks!

Don't worry about it Sarah!! No "hating" going on here at all. They're just swaps...they'll get here when they get here, kwim?!? And I can say that I completely understand where you are coming from (times 3 ). Sometimes stuff just happens, so go hug your baby boy and relax...cuz its OK, we still love ya!

(I think this is when we all hug and sing kumbayah!)

Are freakin' kidding me????? $2.00?!?!? It cost me $14.00 CAN to send them to you!!!
Hey, I also wanted to add thanks for posting your card with your watermark. That is a good idea because if we all just post them as is without it, then chances are......well....do I really have to say it ??? I don't have a watermark I usually just type it on with the paint program that came with XP....

yea; there is a thread in the general forums about how the canadian PO stinks... it's crazy!

Re: watermarks... I always use them... I have seen my images lifted a lot... or even if someone just copies a pic for personal inspiration later; this reminds them who created the card.

EVERYONE: If you have the technology... it's a great thing to add a watermark. Or in my case; if you want... you have my permission to copy the SCS gallery pics of my submission and just put it up if you'd like.

That's a great idea! Especially if you were one of the smart ones on the ball who remembered to take a picture before you mailed it! (Sigh).....I'll have to wait until mine get here before I can do that, lol...

Quick question for those in Group 1. My friend created my watermark for me because I'm a tech-moron and I don't know how to do it myself. I have the file for it and she walked me through how to put it on my pics.

I want to watermark everyone's pics because I don't want them lifted. I'll be doing a write up for each card in group 1. Would anyone be offended if I put my watermark on them, but gave credit to the creator in the post? Or would you rather I left the watermark off? It's the only one I have.

Your post is SO timely Erica...I'm struggling right now trying to create a watermark. I have been to the thread where there are numerous tutorials listed, but I'm JUST NOT GETTING IT. Most tutorials are for PE 2.0 and I have 4.0 so many of the steps are different. HELP!
No, I'm not offended if you put a watermark on my card. NOW, if I can figure out how to create one, I'll get to posting cards on MY blog...lol

I just wanted to let you know that I have featured Amy's card on my blog today. I'm still working on the transparent watermark, but I just HAD to post something today.
Thanks AMY, for an awesome card.

No, I'm not offended if you put a watermark on my card. NOW, if I can figure out how to create one, I'll get to posting cards on MY blog...lol
I have Photoshop 7 and the instructions were super easy for me.

You write whatever text you want, and choose filters, stylize, Emboss, and the embossing should be angle 54, height 2 px, amount 130 percent. Once you do this, click OK. Then on the right side, go into the menu where it says NORMAL and change it to soft light -- tada, a watermark. Really simple, if you want to add shapes or whatever, you can do that too.

HTH!

ETA: Sometimes it might be better if you do not do the last step with making it soft light until you have cut and pasted it onto your photo, cause it literally makes it disappear almost . . .
