Hello my friends, how are you? I think I'll have a go. Thanks for sharing. It's been an age and I'm sure I'm rusty. Hope you are all well. Hugs, Annie

Hey, Annie, Laverne, etc. great to 'c' you! Hope all's well. Yeah, I'll try too. Hope we get some acceptances! Yep, see what you mean. I got an error message, also.

This is so frustrating - I've come up with captions for almost all of the cards! :rant:

Hey, Laverne. Problem solved. You can email your gtngs to her at info@shadetreegreetings.com They noticed that it wasn't working yesterday and are fixing it.

I owe ya one Susie - You rock!

07-29-2009, 08:45 PM
Aww, *blush* Thx much, Robyn & Lavern. Much good luck to everyone. You can pay me in :Cake: :D

Yes thanks Susie! I e-mailed her as well last night, and received the same info as you today. And just to add, to any of my fellow Canadians who might be thinking of submitting. There is no way to put your correct address in, as they only ask for states and zip codes, so if you sub, use the e-mail address.

And thanks so much Robyn, for sharing this market with us!:)

Thanks for introducing new gc companies to this forum Robyn. You are quite generous in sharing new leads with your fellow writers. :)

And as well, thank you Suse for following up on the submission glitch on their website! Very helpful.

The website has been repaired, and I submitted several captions.

Best wishes to everyone who sent in submissions...

Hey, this looks pretty good. I'll toss a few their way when I can.

08-18-2009, 08:15 PM
I sent them some ideas. Hope it pans out.

08-19-2009, 01:00 AM
I did send some, too,
but I don't have a clue....
if verses sent, they will find funny!

I do need a sale...
I don't mean to wail....
But, lately, I've not made much money...... (lately) LOL!

Good poem, Sherri. Know the sentiment only too well. Hope we can make some sales very soon! Keepin' fingers crossed for all of us.

Thanks for the information about the greeting cards.

Looked at the Black and White photos, and sent them a few thoughts or typed up a few ideas.

Looks like a lot of us have sent submissions...

...Best wishes everyone.

Let us know if your ideas are accepted, ok? ;)

Just sent them a couple of ideas too!

Wondering how long it takes to get a response?

Anybody? :Shrug:

09-09-2009, 09:57 PM
Wish I knew, Lavern. I imagine they only let you know if a gtng is accepted. Sure hope we get some acceptances here.

12-09-2009, 09:34 PM
It's been 4 months - Any feedback?

Anyone? :Shrug:

12-29-2009, 11:12 PM
Nope, nothing for me. Hope we hear something good soon...

I just sent some captions. Gotta say, it's not as easy as it looks.

And after reading this thread, I guess I won't be holding my breath waiting for a reply from Shade Tree!

02-20-2010, 02:01 AM
Much good luck, Manuel. Hope you get an acceptance.

02-20-2010, 11:09 PM
Does it really take this long to get feedback? :flag:

02-21-2010, 07:17 AM
Hey, Lavern,

Yep, unfortunately, it does. Sometimes they don't even let a writer know unless they get an acceptance. Blue Mtn. Arts takes up to two years to let a writer know if they get a poem accepted. Not easy, huh... Much good luck, though.
