Hello Denise,

I haven't been on the site lately and just checked yesterday and realized I had better get my stuff in the mail! I was done with my cards but just kept thinking I needed to MAIL them by the 30th stuck in my head!!! So I made my ATC cards and quickly went to the post office to mail them out. While trying to decide the best way to send them and how to fit my return envelope in the package I was sending you, I forgot to self address it!!! I sent along a Priority Mail envelope with my package to ensure that whatever size or weight you send it back in, no mater how much or big, if you can fit it all in, it will ship for the flat rate postage it cost me. The woman at the post office said you will have to bring it in to the post office though, you can't just drop it in a box. But, like I said, in my haste I forgot to address it to myself. Sorry! You have my address but I will include it again to be sure.

Also, on your post you didn't include your zip, if you want to update for those who haven't mailed theirs yet.
This is the first time I've ever made ATCs so it was a new size and experience for me. I got the hang of it on my last one! Fun

Denise,
I have everything done. I only need to send it out - I will do that on Monday.
Hope this is ok!
Did we say anywhere, whether we need to include envelopes with the cards or not? Going to read through the rules one more time.

ATCs are done - just need to finish up the cards tomorrow and they will go postal Monday! You should have them by the 30th!

Awwww Anna and Julie - I'm sorry life got in the way. Hope things smooth out soon for both of you. Hugs, my long distance friends

My address is

Denise Morrison
1308 Jackson ST
Missoula, MT.
59802

Thanks to everyone who participated and no stress about the deadline ladies. We are always so flexible and understanding. It is very loose, just like to have enough time to turn around and get everyone their cards before Christmas.

Cindy thanks for putting your address here. if I have to write it, it helps to have it typed somewhere and not read it off the envelope. It's hard to always tell what it is!!

Ack, you guys!!! I haven't even started. I'm going to have to bow out this year. :(

Mike is in Taiwan again, and I've been trying to work with Jeremy to get college applications finished by tonight's due date. I can't believe we are cutting it this close. :P

Looking forward to seeing all your creations here once they are sent, received, and the surprise is revealed!

Simone and Cindy I haven't seen your packages yet!
It's sunday night.

I have so far
Carolyn
Shannon
Deb
Laura

Hopefully they will be here tomorrow. Cindy I am wondering if there was trouble without the zip code? Maybe I will stop by the post and check to see if they are holding it.
I don't want to make you nervous, just letting you know. Hopefully it's on its way.

Denise,
I mailed them out 11/26 and the expected delivery date on my receipt said 11/29/2016. I had them look up your zip code and I did put it on the package. So I just got out my tracking number and it said it is suppose to deliver today!! Seems it's been in transit to Oak Creek for awhile and took way longer than they promised!
Glad I mailed it when I did or it would have been way longer than this I guess!
Thanks for letting me know as I assumed it had already arrived and wouldn't have checked the tracking. I sent you an email with the tracking number so you can give it to them if you need to.

Okay ladies, I apologize for not getting them out yet.
Everything is ready to post I just have not had the time to get them to the post office.
It's been over time galore trying to get everyone ready for the holidays.
I will be posting them in the next couple of days.
The deadlines for Christmas are still out so I think we are good!
Appreciate your beautiful work.
I can't wait for you to see what everyone has created!!!

Everyone is mailed and on their way!
I am so sorry I got things out later than I wanted this year.
I have to say this, opening up everyone's packages was so incredible.
You are all so talented and each card and ATC was so beautiful and unique.
What a joy this is to me every year!!
Please post photos to this thread if you want to share what you received.
We had less card participants than usual but I just doubled up for each card participant so everyone got 2 of one design. They are all so beautiful.
Thank you all!!!

I got my little envelope today! Wow, ladies, I'm blown away by the talent! Love every little piece I received. I'll post pictures when I get a chance to be home in the daylight. Maybe Thursday or so. Thank you so much for organizing, Denise!
