All of my cards are finished and I'll be shipping them off tomorrow! So hopefully you should all get them in time.
All of the cards are festooned with stickers from my personal Pokemon stash (patent pending) acquired at Pokemon Centers across Japan, hope you like 'em!
So far I've only received Carolyn's, which was amazing! Thank you very much for the drawings and the trading cards! I especially enjoy the early sets card art and as a matter of fact I never had any Neopets TCG before! (I'm not sure they were ever sold in the UK).
h-h-helloooo I am back from uuuuh, an accidental "no forum November"! I am having a "surprise, time off!" week and it is terrifyingly cold and I am very crumpled.
Cards: have been bought, are being drafted - wait HOW is it evening already, next thing I know it'll be tomorrow?! Will be sent before next Tuesday. (I mean the deal was "whenever we can" anyway, right? >_>;;; ) There were new cards in my usual provider's collection, but there might be some repeats from past years? Because... I might not remember all the cards I've used before ^.^; Please forgive any card repeats!
OH and the card of Carolyn has arrived!! It! is! so! prettyyy! I love the fance colours and the cool stickers with American sticker fonts and gasp, the scented sticker, thank you for the little bird, and Set is looking so fabulous and fluffy, just look at him! Great job on the fluff and the bird-ness and the wings, keep it up!
OH OH OH and the card of Celestial has arrived!! Once again I had to cut the top carefully because oooh my the seal is so lovely, and detailed and symmetrical, and you made the little sparkles, and it's all so sweet *carefully snuggles*, thanks so much for the gorgeous art, I love being able to see your art evolution on traditional media ^_^ *pets growing little stash*
Liou - I'm so glad you liked the drawing of fluffy Set! <3 And fance colors! And cool American Trader Joe's stickers! I think it was the cedar sticker, right?
Celestial - There was much AAAAAAAA (happy AAA) in my household when I opened your letter. That Robin is so cute! <3 Much birb, very happy Carolyn.
Twillie- Awww Your card came in and it was so nice. <3 Thanks so much for the cardinal!! Totally made my day.
pixie - Ah!! Your card is so cute! <3 I love your matching pug sweater with your little pug friend. Thank you!!
Thundy- When I opened the card, my reaction was: "LOOK AT THIS FRIEND!" Needless to say, European Robin, what an adorable birdy <3 And it's so cool you have one nesting on your deck!! The Pokemon stickers were awesome as well~ Yay, Sobble!
Thorn- Aww, I loved the llama sticker, the multi-colored message, the happy stickers, and the lovely message. <3 I got it back around the 22nd of December but wowsers! USPS pulled through \o/
Birdy- Oh my goodness, I love all of the stickers. They made me so happy, haha. And the sticker envelope is fantastic. And that cardinal is so beautiful, I absolutely loved the card, thank you!!

All of my cards are officially sent off! May they reach everyone in a timely and safe manner~
In the meantime, I got two more cards myself!
Celestial Such a cute little card ;w; I love the simple illustration on the front, plus the actual felt scarf and hat <3 Admittedly I didn't catch the pun until you mentioned it, it was a subtle one xD It was also a nice surprise to see a sketch of my boy inside! I love it, you did Jonathon well =D It's interesting actually, the way you drew his jacket reminds me of his earlier concept design:
The stripes and shape of the hood made me flash back to this drawing!
Thank you for the kind words inside, I wish you the best as well! :3
Allison Your card came in today! I see what you mean about getting creative, I love the handmade card! The picture is a lovely as well, I do enjoy the local touch to it <3 Since I finished your card today, I replied a little to yours in mine haha. Thank you so much!
I wasn't sure any of my cards would arrive before Christmas, but one was in the mailbox today! I saw the little dice on the envelope, and the stamp, and was pretty sure right away it was from Celestial . And it was! Thanks so much Celes! <3
The words on the inside were lovely and brightened up my afternoon, and the little sketch....ah!!! So sweet and ic for ma girl!!! I'll share because it's just too nice to keep to myself:
We got our first card today! =D And it's from Carolyn of all people - looks like the USPS is doing a much better job than we all thought. It's such a pretty card and the greetings and drawings are adorable - thank you <3
My card from Frunty (Huntress and Fraze) arrived today! Thank you for the metal battling birds and your kind words. Also the stamp. I had no idea Bloody Mary was famous enough to be on a stamp. =O Stamp has been preserved inside the card for posterity.
Two more cards arrived today! One from Huntress and Fraze , and one from @carolyn- double excitingness, thanks friends! <3
Frunty: the stamp is ADORABLE! And the little snowman on the back too. <3 Such a cute card, thanks for the sentiments and the translation. <3 Your cards never fail to brighten my day!
Carolyn: The envelope is so gorgeous, I almost couldn't bear to open it. Especially love the little rose at the bottom right- I'm very weak for floral imagery in general, and roses in particular.
Thanksgiving sticker was also very cool and I shall treasure it.
Then I opened it and...the weewoo is such a cute little messenger, aww. <3 I am thankful to you too! Thanks for the sweet words, and inspirational comments about processing 2020. I do love this card a lot, the birds are so pretty, and both these cards are being displayed on my shelf right now.
Pixie's card arrived today! Both you and your darling pug are super cute. <3 Just wanna squish her sweet face. Your message on the back was sweet too: I am glad you enjoyed Aggie and the familiar shenanigans.
I have already thanked Thundy through our PM channel for his card, which was sweet and adorable and made me so happy. But I just want to flex all of the stickers I got. I have been assured I got more than most...can't imagine why. x3
Okay. I was waiting for someone else to post so I didn't double post (although for a thread like this, I suppose it's find so long as you arne't spamming) but I got my card from Huntress and Fraze yesterday! Yay! Thank you for the beautiful card. And, as I say every year, yeah for foreign language cards! Oh! And that stamp! It is adorable. I mean, there aren't many times when I envy postal stamps.
Heads up guys. Most of my cards have been sent (sorry, got a bit late because of stuff happening in between also my usual posting place suddenly telling me "actually no we only do FedEx now"), but some will be late because we apparently...do not have flights...going to everyone's countries in this signup.
I got my card from Birdy today. And... on my goodness! SO MANY STICKERS! Like... Needed a second stamp number of stickers! I normally just rip the envelope (at times to smithereens when I can't seem to open it right) but there was no way I was going to just rip into this, so I had to find our actual letter opener that I knew was somewhere. And the card itself is beautiful too, with a lovely message.
