Victorian Art Playing cards
I said in my last email that I would be launching the Fantasy Art Playing cards project about this time, but Kickstarter rejected my starting that project at this time. This is what they said,

- Hi Ruth,
- Thanks for sharing your idea with us! I see you already have a live project. Undertaking a Kickstarter project is a lot of work. Even once the project has met its deadline, you'll still have to tread the waters of reward fulfillment which can often be more time consuming than running the project itself. For that reason, we highly recommend that you only launch one project at a time and fulfill rewards on that project before launching another.
My husband and I have delivered the smaller animated scenes as screen savers by download link and DVD for almost 13 years now. So far I only have 4 pledges and 3 of them want downloads. Our experience has been that 90% of the people ask for a download link delivery instead of DVD.
Fulfillment of the animation project should not be a big deal once the animations are created. I have already started on the first 2 of the Hi Def animations, although I have not completed one yet. I don't see a problem with getting then delivered in early-mid September, but it is possible that the last one will be completed and delivered in early October.
In that case I can only begin funding the cards project in October, meaning that it would be the beginning of November at least before I could pay for the start of card printing. And that would mean I wouldn't receive the cards until mid-December, not leaving much time for delivery of the cards in time for the holidays.
You can see some of the images below and the links to those images are here:
I also asked Kickstarter to allow me access to the work I did building the project - when they reject a project that remove the access to it. If I get that access I could send you a preview link, if you are interested. I should have copied my project info - putting together the description, rewards and images is a lot of work. I should have archived it. Sigh.
If you have an interest in this project and think that getting the cards before the holidays would be a good idea you might want to let Aurora know that. You might want to let her know that you think that immediate launching of the Victoria Art Fantasy Playing Cards and Art Gifts project is beneficial to you and your holiday planning? NOTE: the project funding duration is 25 days.
Thank you very much and I am very very sorry to not be able to launch this project at this time.
