Final bid 365 credits. This card was sent to a new winner in Texas. Does anyone else find the winning number a bit strange?
I believe Kaleb helped make this splotch, but I'm not for sure.
Thankfully a friend of Creature Cards sat up with me proposing ideas of how to save the project. At the end he offered an idea that I believe may actually be the best course of action.
So here is the plan. The Creature Cards are going to be on hold for the time being. While they are on hold I will be putting together both the coloring book and the compilation book for the first 6 months. The sale of the books will be to support the continuation of the project, and if the funds are sufficient to cover the increased shipping fee's the project will finish. I will update you as the books progress and give opportunities for pre-orders as well. Thank you all for this wonderful experience. The people I have met make this all worth wild.

Today's splotch was made by Kaleb. I'm still trying to see if I photographed the splotch but at this point I'm swimming in images on my computer.
Yesterday I received a letter in the mail from the post office. In it was an intriguing and disheartening sight. An envelope that had contained a creature card was returned empty, with a mere hey we deal with a lot of mail apology. It was very strange to see that the stamps had not been cleared and it had apparently been put through a machine and torn open. Whoever did tried to fix it by using a small piece of tape. But then the top is also torn all the way open and the contents removed. I paid for non-machinable shipping, so I went into the post office today to discuss what had happened.
Unfortunately the postal system here is different than Portland where I lived when I began the Creature Card Creation Project. My local postal service does not have a separate container for non-machinable letters, they just ship it all over to Salem. It is unlikely that Salem sorts the letters out so there isn't a guarantee they won't try to run it through the system. The only way to guarantee the cards safe travel is to package them in an envelope larger than 8 inches (or so they said at the post office.) This more than doubles the cost of mailing the cards and I just can't afford to do it anymore. Unless I can come up with an alternative I'm going to stop the project at the half way point.
Basically one day left... I'm feeling quite defeated at the moment.
Card ended on the 4th of July. It seemed to effect the ending results. Final bid 1,010 credits. This card was sent to New York.
This splotch was made with my mom and son. I really think this one turned out nicely.
Final bid 1,898 credits. This card was sent to Wisconsin.
I started this creature yesterday because I forgot that I was supposed to make an inchie. This one didn't have a face when I figured it out yesterday. I think I was feeling a bit guilty so I made another creature.
The creature below I made from one of the splotches I made with my mom yesterday. Since I didn't have a photo of just the splotch I won't put it on listia. I call it "Dancing Shoes" and you can buy it to support the Creature Card Project for just $10.00

To me, this looks like a monster dressed up like a super hero in a cape, making the "call me" signal with it's hand. What does it look like to you?
Final bid 2808 credits. This card stayed in Oregon.
This reminds me of the song Ursula sings in the little mermaid. She sings "...This one begging to be thinner, that one wants to get the girl, and do I help them? Yes in deed."
When searching for a creature use the specific name or number only for best results.
