Comment: Hi Bre!
Thanks for the nice handmade postcard. I love the illustrated Harry Potters, they're so much fun and the illustrations are great! I think they recently released the illustrated version of The Goblet of Fire. Happy New Year! -Virginia
Comment: Thank you for the fun note card and little cut outs! Some of my most fond moments from school were with my art teacher! <3 I'd send some sunshine but all I have is rain here and I don't think you want more snow! Oh and I love how you drew all over the envelope!
Response: ♡ Thank you for your comments! I'm so glad you liked it :) And I'm sorry you don't have any extra sunshine to share ;D the rain is all yours.
Comment: I got it today! Thank you so much for re sending PC ! Sounds fun being an Art teacher! I was once a pre school teacher. I took classes etc. for it and did it from 1987 to 1994. I had to give it up, as my 5th baby came a long & I wanted to be home this time & raise my baby. I really loved it & miss it still ! Anyway, Happy New Year 2020 !
Response: Yaaaay! You are so welcome! I totally understand teaching, babies, etc. :) God bless you momma!
Comment: Dear Bre, thanks a lot for your wonderful owl linocut. What kind of printing colors did you use? (Always interested to learn more...) It's a lovely idea to use some WashiTape for making the edge of the card more colorful. Thanks for participating in my swap, I hope you liked it as much as I did :)
Edit: You can see my self-carved stamps and linocuts on the postcards I sent via Postcrossing:

Comment: Bre, I received your postcard for this swap and I love the way you did the front of it! I really like watercolor and the colors and shades that you got on this are just beautiful. The West Side Nut Club Fall Festival is always a grand event and people talk about it year-round. everyone looks forward to the annual map coming out that shows where each of the food booths are located so that they can plan their meals around it and support their favorite charities. They even have a webcam available so you can watch the action from your computer! Thanks so much for your card! Happy swapping to you!!
Response: Yay! That sounds awesome! So fun! You are welcome and thank you so much for the response/info, kind words and heart! ♡♡

Comment: Thank you for your collage post card :) I've never seen a monarch butterfly in nature yet. Here the fall is starting to change to winter. Temperature has dropped to minus degrees and it's been snowing a little.
Response: Here too with the weather. Brrr. Our monarchs are gone for the season- they are amazing when they migrate and gather together by the thousands in trees! ♡
Comment: Thank you, so fun collaged face :D. I too really liked doing this swap and I like to read how your students helped with picking the face parts. You can thank also them, and tell I liked how it turned out.

Comment: Aren't you a clever lady! This was such a fun swap to open. Your improvised yellow envelope, the 3 of hearts mushroom notecard, the 6 butterflies that flew out of your notecard....and I hadn't even got to your ATC yet.
