Karelyn, any size you like, hun. Honestly, just do whatever you want. I'm sure everybody will do a mix of capitals and lower case anyway.

ok Patty, i wont ask the 101 questions i was going to then... Tee Hee

I already have the bases cut and the top bits and i bought the letters today..just got to decorate and assemble.

Unless anyone objects (don't you dare Zip Gob ) I am going to do the C of Canny and C of Crafter in capital letters and the rest in lowercase...

I am 'doing my own thing' but i did decide against serendipity....and against spring colours, and against hearts, and against goats.

Kate, I can tell you once you start on the Serendipity papers, you will never stop as it is different every time. I often use them as card backgrounds, ATC backgrounds, inchie backgrounds, everything! Go for it!

Thanks for all the answers girls, I am enjoying Karin, but I've no idea what they're meant to look like as I haven't seen any, apart from the retro ones I found when I googled, mine will not be like that, and I am not going to worry about trying to make a set either as they will be split up, going to be fun, using up a few things that are too nice to bin too, I hope.

Karin, that's the same idea as I have, to use my sizzix die alphabet. It'll be either Lollipop or Shadow.

I wondered how you were being held up by my/our questions LOL
I have actually got a page of ideas and techniques written down which almost ammounts to planning where I'm concerned, and I haven't even buried the bokk it's written in yet. Got several other things on the go before I can start this though.

You asked on Incidental whether I was joining the swap, Lou, and I'm sorry to say that I'm not. I'm fine, though, thankyou: it's just that I need a break! Before Christmas, I was making cards, making the mini-book for my best-friend's 60th and finishing the book with our friend's 50th anniversary pictures in. As soon as the in-laws left after New Year, all my spare time was spent getting ready for the class I taught on Tuesday and now I'm tidying up after that. Although it's very unlikely I will actually make anything for myself (virtually everything I make is given to other people!), I want to do some birthday and Christmas cards so I'm covered for those. And you never know - I might actually get to try out my Christmas present from Steve: bought a Bind-it-all in early December but haven't even used it yet!

Don't worry - I'll be back on the swap circuit in due course. But only when I feel I can give my best, as I would be mortified if I produced something I wasn't happy with that was going to someone else.

Meanwhile, I'll look forward to seeing the pictures of everyone's work.

Isn't it strange that sometimes you start out making something, with a good idea in your mind's eye, and it just doesn't go right at all and you end up putting it in the bin and tearing your hair out - then another one, you don't seem quite so keen on, turns out to be the best you've done in a long time! Suppose that's why I like to keep trying new things ... got to get it right some of the time that way!!

Lorraine I had hoped to see you say you'd got mine this morning. Did they arrive ok.

I had a full day to myself on Tuesday and so made a start on them, once I got going I wasn't going to stop. I loved doing them and I'm sorry to say to others but I did do Serendipity.

I posted them first class yesterday so hope they got there today ok. Was determined NOT to be the last to send mine out. And apart from Lorraine's already in her house !!!! I think I might have been the first. YAY.
