Thank you for organizing this for us Johnie!!! I'll have to check my card supply. I have a pronounced tendency to buy cards and put them away for "next year." Then I forget and go out and buy new cards! :lol:

Looking forward to sending the cards. I do love the exchange. :yes:

Thanks for your lovely card John and Donna :hug2:

I have to go out and buy a few cards tomorrow morning to get mine out - I was going to make all of my own but my cat Lola just will NOT let me do it without trying to "help". I have tried locking myself in the study but she just knocks her paw on the door continously. I even tried shutting her in Basil puppy's pen (she was sleeping there at the time, I wasn't being cruel) but as soon as she saw me laying the craft stuff out she started trying to undo the door and I had to let her out as I felt sorry for her. I have had to officially give up or the cards won't go out until Easter!

Dawn
03-12-2009, 05:15 PM
Ours going out tomorrow. :D

Cards posted yesterday, fingers crossed they make it to the US and Australia in good time although at the moment it's likely the international onces will be there before the one going 20miles up the road!

I received a lovely handmade one from Donna and John,

I went with an animal theme this year. As well as the many meerkat cards I had a pack of guinea pig cards that I bought in the January sales and I saw the sheep cards in the Oxfam shop and couldn't resist them. :lol:

Tink
17-12-2009, 02:07 AM
And from me too. I apologize for not naming everyone individually, but I thank you for your beautiful cards and lovely messages. You've really made our house look festive and Seth just loves looking at all the cards. He was a little crestfallen that they weren't "his" so we assured him that he was included in all of them. Then he received a special one just his own, so thank you so much for that special card, "You Know Who." :D

Jodie
18-12-2009, 05:15 PM
I had about 8 or 9 cards arrive yesterday so many, many thanks to everyone, it's always a joy to receive a non-bill in the post!

Tink

Isn't it though!? :yes:

The cards are all so very beautiful! We have them throughout our living room. They add so much color. I like to pick one up at any given time and re-read it. It's like visiting with old friends, eh? :yes:

Shellyamc
22-12-2009, 10:32 PM

Shellyamc

oh :unsure:, thank you Shelly! did you get yours or did i send it to someone else?

Well no, I didn't get one from you, but as far as I can tell you were not on the list for the exchange? Maybe we are all going crazy here? :lol:

Britchick
23-12-2009, 08:12 PM

Well I didn't do the card exchange ( As I've said previously, I didn't realy know what it was all about but will do next year)

Anyway - the reason for my post is that I am on alot of forums, some homeowners forums some Disney forums etc but you know what - you guys are all so lovely :yes: there's never a nasty comment and it's just so nice to see.

The regular posters are just so kind and I often smile when reading the posts even if I don't contribute ( i'm not saying this very well - it's hard without sounding slushy)

I like it here :thumbsup:

Sandra

Johnie

I lost track ages ago of my cards but a huge thank you to everyone who sent me a card - they are stuck all over the living room wall and no doubt will rip the wallpaper off when I take them down. :D

Here's to next year's exchange.
