PMs sent to the five IDs above me on the list and I'll start despatching when I receive all addresses from the five below me.

In previous years I have launched myself into this challenge straight away and sent off cards with enthusiasm. TBH it has then been a little disappointing when weeks after the start date, and sometimes even months after (!) some post to say that they have yet to "get round to making their cards and sending them".

So, for any first timers in this great idea for a challenge, don't be too surprised if, after an initial burst of activity of finding cards from all over the globe landing on your door mat sometimes the odd stray one pops up after you have almost forgotten about DPE!

And of course, some sadly never make it to their destinations at all

So lets look forward to hearing about what cards you send out, and later please show us what you receive, interesting stamps and all. I think this is my favourite Dyxum activity (apart from Dyxum meets of course )

Good luck everyone.

OK, 5 PM's sent, but so far only 1 received. I'm sure they will all come.

Next step is selecting the 5 pictures to use.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

My pleasure Shay! Didn't want to miss it this year

I will definitely have some spares. Didn't want to go with one type, so ordered two sets of five.
Any volunteers can send me a PM with their address for an extra card on top of the five from the initial list.

I've sent my deets to my five senders, received same from four of my five recipients.

Now to work out what are suitably postcardy images taken close enough to home. Looking at commercial postcards, I guess I'll need unnaturally supersaturated colours, with a really strange white balance - and as this is Dyxum, taken using an appropriate camera.

I'm in the process of selecting pictures too. Like adhox, figuring out which pics are the most "postcardy" can be tough. I did shoot several rolls of film this year ... so maybe a mix of grainy black and white film (Minolta!!), and some over clean digital (Sony).

With luck, my mail drop happens by the weekend ... have fun, folks! DPE is on!
