Comment: Hi Shelle. Thanks for the pretty card. I love how you did the map envelope! I have been trying to make my own envelopes with2 different tools and I have messed them up terribly! The map idea is great. Thank you also for the extras.I really like the glittered beautiful dreamer tag.
Response: Thank you for the wonderful rating and heart!
Comment: Hi Shelle. Thank you for the ATC. You did a great job with the mixed media. I am still working on that. The hand lettering is so cool that I have to keep looking at it because it looks like stickers and I know it is not! I really love the blue gem eyes. 😀
Response: Oh, you are so kind! I was a little iffy on my lettering as I'm not the best, so I appreciate you being lenient. :) Thank you for the heart and rating!
Comment: Hi Shelle. Thank you for the nice card with an animal. I saw that you were the one to ask if a bird would be considered an animal. Lol. I really love the Tim Holtz Crazies! I wish I had the sayings to go with them but they are out of my budget! 🙁 Happy crafting...
Response: Aw, you are welcome. I just love those crazy birds! I guess I need to put the sayings on my wish list for Christmas! :) Thanks for the rating and heart!
Comment: Shelle, I LOVE the beautiful card you created for this swap. The layout is elegant in its simplicity but beautiful use of echoing leaf stamps. I can us it this week for my "Sister in Faith" for the coming year (following school calendar). I also need to create a Birthday Card for her this month. I hope I can find a layout of it that I like as much as the one you used! Thanks for a great swap
Response: Thank you for the awesome rating and heart!

Comment: Oh my gosh Iâ€™m so sorry! I did indeed receive your beautiful Santa card. Here it is sitting right in the place of honor in my album. I have no excuses as for why I didnâ€™t rate in a timely manner and I am very apologetic as I love the card very much. Have a wonderful Christmas and thank you for swapping
Response: No worries--I just wanted to be sure that you received something! Thank you for the wonderful rating and heart! Have a wonderful holiday and new year!
Comment: What a pretty card!!! I love the colors you used! Are the dots on the background paper a stamp? I like it! And the punch is pretty! It can be a flower or a 4 leaf clover! Thanks for a beautiful "punchy" card!!!
Response: The dots were not a stamp--that was designer series paper (I THINK). Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the NYC postcard! I need to go back there one day. Michael Connolly--did he write The Lincoln Lawyer? I listened to that audio book one time and really liked it. Maybe I'd like The Poet, too!
Response: Yes he did write THE LINCOLN LAWYER, too. I'm still finishing THE POET, but it's good so far! Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Looooooove how the flower inks match the background flowers (and love those flower stamps)! Such perfection. I have some of those little doilies and couldn't figure out what to do with them - might steal your idea. ;) Thanks, too for the notecard extra.
Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful comments, the rating and the heart!
Comment: Love lime green and pink together - one of my favorite color combos! That simple bold flower is terrific. Sorry l am late in rating, been house/dog sitting for a couple of weeks and didn't get home to get my mail last week.
Response: No worries--thank you for the rating and the heart. I'm glad you liked it!
Comment: Thanks for all the Snail Mail goodies!!! I LOVE the teapot stickers and the lighthouse post card! That Japanese postcard is sure odd! LOL! I need to look that up and see if the loooooooooong neck is a thing in the folklore or something! Thanks for an awesome swap!!!
EDIT (a few minutes later): the Rokurokubi: an imaginary creature with a long neck that can stretch or shrink at will. ðŸ˜€
Response: Thank you for the sweet rating. I thought you might appreciate the Japanese postcard for it's "oddity". :)
Comment: Such a pretty assortment of tapes on your envie!! I LOVE the owls, flip flops, peace signs, hot air balloons & pink & green plaid. They're all cute, but these are my favorites. Thank you so much for the samples you sent.

Response: You are welcome. Thank you so much for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Beautiful card! I like that technique of sponging over a cutout. Thanks for those cute bookmarkers, too!

Comment: Thanks Shelle! I love the handmade envelope. Do you use the envelope punch board by We R Memory Keepers? What glue do you use? It rurned out perfect. I love that punch board! I use it all the time.

Comment: Love the washi! Particularly the diamond pattern with orange, the piano, and the blue with squiggles. But they are all great. Thanks for avoiding pink! You'd be surprised how many people mention to me that they had way more pink whatever-the-thing-is than they knew. :D
