Bonnie has agreed not to give up completely if I can work this out without a lot of trouble.  More soon.

(your meditation today is The Star:  the star seems really far away, but, darn it, if it did all that work to get its twinkle to you, you could at least have a teaspoon of faith!  Did I say that with my outside voice??)

Marcia959 wrote: It's low resolution to show us the cards here.  But it's high resolution (4"x6" with at least 300 dpi) to send to me for the actual deck.

The difference is that the website can handle only tiny pictures.  But for the deck itself we need the larger high resolution versions so we can get that crisp detail of your design in print.

Thanks!


The actual sizes are alittle different.  Sorry to add alittle confusion to the mix, BUT......

The actual card is 3 x 4.5 inches with a border, leaving 2.5 x 3.75 in design area. That the ACTUAL SIZE that will be  printed.  To maximize quality we've recommnded doing the design at twice the size.  That would have a design area of 5 x 7.5 in design area.

Now if you set your new design up in pixels rather than inches, the preferred size is 1500 x 2250 pixels (5 x 7.5 inches times 300 pixels per inch)

If you are intersted, that makes it a 1 to a 1.5 ratio in width vs height.  In other words, for every inch in the horizontal, the design is 1.5 inch in the vertical.

It really is perfect.  And I can believe a cat thinking she is the the High Priestess.  I love cats, I've had a cat who couldn't understand why anybody would want to be anything other than a cat!  At the time my other kitty (the one who looked like my avatar) kinda suspected he was a person.

Gregory just was just worried with all the dogs I kept doing.  :cs

Pay no attention to that small varmint nipping at my skirts.  (Tony!  Down, kitty, not playtime!  Naughty!  Bring back Mommy's... oh, look, something shiny.  Can I eat it?)

Thank you one and all. I'm finally getting comfortable with the program I use, and I can better express what's in my head, strange as that may be.

Corel Photo Paint 7. I've used it for the last eleven years, which is ancient in computer terms, but it still has depths to discover.

Hi Everyone,
I sure am enjoying viewing everyone's cool imagery for this deck and the comments shared. It is a great pleasure to be a part of this collaborative with you all!!
I kind of hurt my back being (obsessively) on the computer too much so must curtail my time for a wee bit, but did want to share my 2nd card: XXI World. Hope it will work for the deck...have been sensing Gaia's wrath (on humanity) a tad more than usual lately and so that came thru in this World card. Here is the write-up while its still fresh in my head.

XXI The World
The World encompasses our everything; food, shelter, body, mind & heart; our existence resides on this little blue ball. Our World is the primal mother Gaia and it sure feels like lately she is getting fed up with abuses of the laws of nature and is wrecking havoc on us. In this card, Gaia appears beautiful, timeless and fit to kick some serious butt. A snake; (symbolic of ancient Goddess culture and the life/death/rebirth cycle) is coiled like a whip, ready to strike. In Gaia’s other hand she holds earth (fuse lit), while a primitive creature grabs for it. The ancient Roman column represents Democracy while a more modern looking column refers to its evil offshoot Capitalism; which most often is in direct opposition to our role as guardians of the World. Our collective greed and lack of foresight may be a ticking time bomb. In the background a Twilight Zone vortex swallows up our sense of time and space and the pathway leads off to nothingness.



Thanks, I'm sure looking forward to seeing all the cards as the deck evolves. So exciting! Xo

gregory is Officially Displeased.:ww

The June 30 deadline is for real. If cards are not in by then, we WILL reassign them wherever we like. We don't seem to have that many.... I am about to leave for Canada. I hope to see extremely many more up here when I get back, OK ???

June 30th was decided upon at the start. If we extend it will be like every other year and people will just start assuming that come June it will move to August and so on.

My cards will be done by 30th of june 2011. Even if I have to miss sleep to make them....:z:hp.

Actually, one of them is kinda finished. Except it still needs a face. Gregory knows, she's seen it. :bl

The other ones, I have them ready in my head and hope to finally get them on paper in the next few weeks.
