Thank you all for your kind words and I'm so happy you are so pleased by the look of the cards. Believe me, I was too when Grace showed me her ideas.

On the font and color of the posts, I was a little worried from the beginning that if the card got to be too many pages, there might be trouble. So I moved virtually every message posted to get as many on one page as possible. Once I'd done that, I soon discovered that it was easier to distinguish between one message and the next if they were either in different colors or different fonts. Hence that is why changes were made. Frankly, the default font is not that easy to read and some of the other font choices are almost completely unreadable. Add to that, if someone chose a light color too, we might cause Leonard to go blind. So, I thought being readable was the first priority. I know some people gave the font and color lots of thought and I'm sorry that I had to change it. But I assure you it was only in the interest of making the card as readable as possible. This was less of an issue on the band members' cards because I didn't feel the pressure to limit the pages, so there could be more space between messages and thus they didn't run together as much.

Marie,

Having to make changes to participants' font/color with LC in mind, I'm sure everyone will be satisfied. And, with you and Grace overlooking the final product, the end result is perfection!

Bev,

Your drawing of LC is phenomenal and deserves that place of honor!

Warmest regards,
Mary

Thank you Marie and Grace. Some of those fonts were really funky - and made the letters too jammed together so that it was a bit difficult to read even on the computer screen! And I imagine, translating to print would make it even more unclear.

"The bother" is a curious place - it changes location all the time.
But I thank you both so much for finding it in this instance and going to it.
The cards are beautiful. :D :D

remote1, Tineke and MaryB,

Thank you all for your wonderful compliments on my drawing of Leonard and it's inclusion in his card. :D I'm still getting over the surprise and pleasure of it being there!
I can't wait for Leonard to see the whole card. I wish there was a way we could know his reaction to all our thoughts about him. I truely would love to be a fly on the wall when he reads his card. That goes for all the UHTC as well. I don't think they would be expecting anything, especially individually, for themselves. I hope we get to hear about their reactions too.

jeremek - it may be that you are doing nothing wrong. I think that the problem may be with PayPal.
There is news that it is "down" - in connection with actions regarding WikiLeaks.
Last week PayPal restricted/froze funds in an account associated with WikiLeaks.
Now this week - they allegedly caved and released the funds in response to pressure from WikiLeaks supporters.
And the site is "down" - possibly as a result of attacks by WikiLeaks supporters.

It's complicated. :cry:

Anyway - that is what I have heard/read.
So - possibly if you wait a day or so - PayPal might be back up and work for you in ordering the group cards.

I am so grateful for the love and care that has gone into creating just the kind of treasured gifts we would each want to give to this most most special of men in our lives, and to his beautiful band of musicians.
Would that we could all be there to share in the giving. His love for us, i believe, runs as deep as our love for him.
Thank you so much for turning your lives upside down to create so remarkable and long lasting a testament to our Man,
...like you would do for the one you love...
And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind

Leonard's card looks beautiful Marie and Grace (wish I had had the forethought to look at them in Vegas, but with all the craziness to get the bags ready for presentation, it completely slipped my mind)! So good meeting you in Vegas. Hope to see you again soon.
