I applied for my 10 year card in November and am still waiting for my card. Just renewed my récépissé for a further 3 months. You will need to do the usual early morning trip to the prefecture (no getting out of that one I'm afraid!). The good news is that renewing the récépissé is a 10 minute job, although the queue still remains painfully long! You will not need to supply any supporting documentation, just take 3 photos, your old récépissé, and the expired carte de sejour. Head straight to accueil 3 (the one at the end of the hallway). That's it! 

Hope that helps.
