hmm... how long ago did you get it? I haven't got anything and I sent back the info that they wanted.
mirana Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011
Mmm, around the 25th. It was very quick, considering most prizes I've ever won take at least a month or more to show up. They have 100 people to send stuff to, so I'd wait a little longer before contacting $Moonbeam13.
