Good idea Daniel! And just so my swapmate knows, I'd have no issues with that either.

Thanx, AJ!

While I'd still try to connect with a swapmate, I have no prob with any swapper sharing their 'ok' or 'not' directly on our swap thread.

Great idea, Daniel! There are many great challenges this party round!

I started on my tag yesterday. DS1 even helped me!

Once you get past the standard letter rate for international, the rates go up exponentially. But the letter rate is reasonable.

Just checking in, I had wondered about the tag and combining with SOF, but my thought process didn't get any further than that...

Hey all, here's my check in!

I haven't even thought about my tag, hehehe. I too would be fine if Marshia wanted to use her tag in a challenge and it was posted before I rec'd it.

I've done all of the tag swaps so far too!

Terrific, Pearl! Yeah. October is rolling along. I want/need to get started on my Nov. tag, too. Time to choose a 'thankful for'!

Doncha love Serendipity?! Just ran across a whole box of rak'd goodies that a friend sent me several years ago. That--combined with the goodies I got from AJ for Anne's Drive By--have provided me with all the stuff I need to choose my 'thankful for'!

How neat Daniel, can't wait to see what you create!! Working on another swap right now, but it is time to pick my stamps for nov swap. I'm grateful for so many things, it'll be interesting what jumps out at me from the stamp bin!

JCI, I had a little time this morning and picked my stamps for my tag. Now I just need to figure out how I want to arrange them on my tag.

I've got my theme, but not sure (yet) how I'll translate it to the tag.

Y'all have my sympathies. I thot this would be fairly 'simple', but it looks like many of us have decided to go in various directions. 'Course there's nothing wrong with going for the holiday route with this theme, either.

I'm finished! Turns out, that my "found" item turned out to be my fav thing...so fun! I got really creative, something I borrowed from my son..he'll never know it was all full of ink just a few hours ago...hehehehe!

I gotta say how much I love this tag, and I'll be mailing out tomorrow to Caribbean Girl!

FINALLY! I finished my tag today. I'm glad to read that the 'found object' was a challenge for others too. I'm embarrassed it took me so long to come to something so so simple that actually worked! LOL.

I'll make a trip to the PO tomorrow Kathy. I hope you like the result.

Mine is done and ready, I just need to find my postage stamps or go buy some more!

The found object was trial and error for me. I tried stamping with a few different objects before I was happy with my results.

Mine's done! Spent a few hours on it today & I'm 'content' with it.

No comes the 'hard' part. Keeping my hands off it! Sealing it in the envelope is no protection. I've unsealed envies before!

Looks like most of us are 'on track' with our tags. If you're not & think you're gonna be 'late' mailing, let your swapmate know.

Mine is going postal tomorrow.

Ok, I swear I posted here last night and now it's gone! If anyone finds my missing post... let me know where it went! LOL

My tag is finished and should be postal today or tomorrow! The found item was a challenge. I finally went with something obvious and it didn't work at all the way I thought, but I like it.

Marshia, I received your tag today also! It's beautiful! Very creative use of your found item! And thanks so much for the extra goodies. I have an idea for their use already!
