Comment: Thank you for the lovely decorated envelope and for all the goodies... I especially love the postcards - very nice! (It was fun to get a winter wonderland themed envie since we have been having temps near 80 degrees lol! I hope it warms up for you soon!)
Response: Oh that's so neat! I'm glad you liked my winter themed envelope. It's a bit warmer here now, but it's on in the 40's but I'll take that over the horrible cold we had for so long! :D
Comment: Thank you for the sweet, newsy note, Shirley, on the cutest notecard--being a glasses wearer, I appreciated it! Thanks, too, for those lovely die cuts--they're just my style and are already in my journal fodder folder. Loved it!
Response: I'm a glasses wearer too and thought it was adorable! I'm so glad you liked my note and the die cuts :D <3
Comment: I am including the extraness cause of the card. I giggled when I saw it. :D Bonjour (That's Fancy for Hey) I loved the layers and the adorable look of the ATC! Thank you! Happy Valentine's Day!
Comment: Shirley, thank you so much for this cutie! I do love the vintage Valentine images, and the way you carried the Valentine theme throughout the ATC is really lovely...from the background through all the layers, just so much Valentine love!
Response: You are welcome, I'm so glad you like it! <3 :)

Best wishes and happy Holidays!
Response: Merry Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful holiday. <3
Comment: Love the PC! Where did you get it? Not doing much this year. Getting together with my daughter and her family, and my card club, that is about it. Will decorate just a bit this coming week, to get into the spirit. Keeping busy with all the swaps. Have a great day and Merry Christmas!
Response: I got a bunch of postcards on Amazon, so most likely from there.I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your daughter! :)
Comment: Hi Shirley! Love the gingerbread Christmas card, we have a kit to make some mini ones waiting on my great- great nieces to come and help! Love the Christmas season. I have several gingerbread ornaments on our tree. Thanks for the stickers too! Wishing you a joyous Christmas and the best of 2019! Take care ~ Judy
Response: Hi Judy! I'm so glad you liked the card. I love Christmas too and can't wait to start baking! I hope you have a Merry Christmas! :D
Comment: Lovely days gone by vintage card of large pumpkin and farm children trying to move it. Thank you for picking this card for me. Enjoyed your message and see that you stamped an image with words on the back. It has a postal cancellation mark and date of almost a month ago. It does have top layer of right side on back near my address peeled back in about a half of a dime size - most likely torn by a sorting machine. Must have slowed it down somehow transit time wise. So glad it has arrived -wouldn't want to have missed this PC for my collection. Thank You !
Response: Wow, yes, I sent that postcard around Halloween time! I can't believe it has just arrived but it does sound like it went through a lot on it's way to you. I'm so glad you like it! :D
Comment: Such a pretty and appropriate card for this week! I am so excited to receive a post card from Rhode Island! It is on my bucket list. I have traveled to 41 states but the majority of my wish list is in the North East. Been to Massachusetts and upstate New York but so want to see Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Thank you so much!
Response: You are very welcome!! Rhode Island is a beautiful state. I love it here, especially this time of year with all the gorgeous foliage. However, our beaches are really nice in the summer too. I hope you get to come here someday soon! :D
Comment: I just couldn't wait Love the card & it will be put out with my Christmas and thank you for the bookmark, it is so cute....all the items were fun but those buttons are something else, love them..Thank you.
Response: You are welcome! I"m so glad you like everything :D
Comment: Hi Shirley, Thanks for the wonderfully decorated envelope, nice card and the note and also the leaves turkeys!!Glad you will have the whole family together at Thanksgiving!! Happy Thanksgiving to you also!!
Response: I'm so glad you like the envelope and card! Happy Thanksgiving! :D
Comment: You are my first Christmas card of season! So exciting! 20 people for dinner! I’ve done that before. It’s a lot of work but so fun and rewarding. Take lots of pictures and journal on the back of them to remember all of the fun! My oldest daughter is cooking her first Thanksgiving dinner and it will be the first one I haven’t cooked in over 25 years! Time with family and friends is the best💜
Response: You are very welcome and it sounds like you have some wonderful holiday plans! I hope you all enjoy yourself. Merry Christmas! :D
Comment: It's awesome that your family will be all together for Thanksgiving! We haven't been able to do that in too many years. Your pies sound yummy, you'll have to send me the leftovers! Love the goodies too! Thank you!
Comment: Hi Shirley - Thanks so much for the wonderful Vintage Christmas ATCs. I love them and can't wait to add them to my collection. What a small world that you were born in Benicia!! Thank you for joining the swap. Take Care -Vanne
Response: Oh yay, I'm so glad you love them! I was quite happy with how they came out and almost wanted to keep them! ha ha ;-)
Comment: Hi Shirley! This envelope is SO CUTE! I love the little ghost peeking out of the bag. AND you used a Halloween stamp! Neat! Thank you so much for the pc, the cute stickers, and most of all the sweet, newsy note. Our neighbors have a tuxedo cat--we have an all-white cat with one blue eye/one green eye, and a gray tabby. Wish I could come over for some apple pie!
Response: You are so welcome! I had fun making it for you. I wish you could come over for some apple pie, would be nice to have a new friend!
Comment: Shirley, I love the apple postcard that you created!!! The colors and composition are fantastic! There used to be an orchard not far from us that we would visit in the fall and they would let us collect 'drops' that had fallen off the tree and gotten bruised. We made applesauce, cinnamon apple butter, fried apples, all sorts of wonderful treats! Those were the best tasting apples, second only to the ones I ate while I was a child climbing our own two apple trees... Thanks for bringing such nice memories to my mind!
Happy apple picking to you!!!
Response: Oh yay! I'm SO glad you liked it! Oh those are some wonderful memories! I'll be going apple picking very soon and can't wait to start baking and making! :D
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful Tibetan Crane card! Are all your fall colors coming in? We don't have the reds of maples, but we do have the banks of blueberry bushes and fireweed, that glow on the mountains! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Shirley, I received your cut and paste postcard today and that festival that you've shown on it sounds wonderful!! I can imagine the atmosphere of excitement as the fire vessels travel on the water! It's a beautiful postcard and at first glance, I thought it was a purchased card; you have a great artistic eye! Be careful or some postcard company will hire you to work in their art department!!! Thanks for a great swap!
Response: Oh I'm so glad you like it! Water Fire is such a unique and fun event. I look forward to them every year! :D
Comment: Thank you for the Halloween postcard! I love it! My kids are also too old for trick or treating which bums me out. My youngest son sits on the porch with me to give out candy, so that’s our new tradition I guess! Happy Halloween!
Comment: This is definitely the first thing I've EVER gotten from Rhode Island. And OMG the card is SO CUTE!!! You are right - it turned out very, very well. I love the ant, and the torn gingham. And the smiley sun. And the clouds. Well, okay, I also like the watermelon and picnic basket, soooo basically, I love this card. Thank you!
Response: Oh, you are welcome, I'm so glad you liked the ATC! I really loved how it came out too. :D
Comment: What a lovely surprise to find when I came home today. Thank you so much for the PC. It really brightened up my day. As to heat, girl, don’t I know it. NorCal really likes her late August Indian summers. *shudder* Bring on Fall!!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Fall is only a few weeks away, woohoo! :D
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful PC! I love it! The stamps are great too! We had our first "hot" day today at 73 degrees! Since it has been mostly in the 50's this summer, we were all sweating! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I'm really glad you liked it! Wow, 73 degrees! I wish it was that temp here today. It's in the upper 90's with high humidity. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer! :D
Comment: Very nice. I think I prefer it up-side-down to how you made it. Your smallest scrap might be as big or bigger than my largest scrap for this swap. Lol I made 3 right away & then sent what I thought my partner would like best to her.)
Response: I'm glad you like it, even if you like it better upside down, lol. :)
Comment: Hi Shirley! Finally getting around to open up some swaps! Thank you for the decos, I remember my dad showing us Shirley Temple movies when we were younger so I cant wait to decorate that deco! Thank you!
Response: You are welcome, I hope you have fun with the decos! :)
Comment: Shirley...I enjoyed reading your note...sounds like you are busy and enjoying our warmer season!This card is really cute..thanks for a nice swap! Yes we are having the same weather here in NY and I'm loving it!! Happy Spring...Charlene
Response: Charlene - I'm so glad you enjoyed my note and card. I hope your Spring continues to be nice and here's to a great summer too! <3
Comment: OMG SHIRLEY, the EIFFEL TOWER ATC YOU MADE ME CAME OUT LOVELY and the BEAUTIFUL EIFFEL TOWER CARD I LOVE AS WELL. If you ever want to swap one on one just send me a message. Have a great day today, AnnaL.
Comment: Hi sweet Shirley!!! As always, you are a phenominal swap partner!!!! It is so obvious that you looked over my profile (As always) and did a flat out perfect selection! Stamped images, washi, STAR WARS STICKERS, beautiful postcard and ATC sized backgrounds. Thank you sweety, I so appreciate it :)
Response: Hi Dina - I am SO glad you liked everything!! Thank you for the sweet comment here, I really appreciate it <3 <3
Comment: Hi Shirley... Thank you so much for the beautiful ATC. So glad your snow is melting.. usually takes forever on the East coast. :-) With snow forecast for the drive in tomorrow to work, I am SOOOO ready for Spring! Thanks again!
Response: I'm so glad you like the ATC! :) Weather is still chilly here but at least most of the snow is gone!
Comment: Hi Shirley! Thanks for the great pc and yes I am soooo ready for spring! We haven't had much snow just lots of cold - in my mind I am a beach gal, so the cold is not working for me! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the very pretty postcard that you sent! Opposite from your area, we have had a very warm winter here in California. Even unusual for us. I sort of feel like we missed out on winter this year! Hope it warms up your way soon! Thanks again!
Comment: Shirley, Thank you for the beautiful winter card! It looks like a watercolor done in shades of blue and since I love watercolor, even though I'm not good at it myself, this was perfect to receive! Best wishes to you for a nice winter, with only enough snow to put in the space you have available! Lol!!
Response: You are welcome, I'm so glad you love the card! It's going to show this weekend, hopefully not too much! :D
Comment: Thank you for the snowman mail! Look forward to opening it when I get home (Iâ€™m out of town so my husband texts me pictures of SB mail to keep me smiling). Have a great Decemberâ„ï¸ â˜ƒï¸â„ï¸
Response: You are welcome, I hope you like everything! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely Thanksgiving card and stickers! Enjoy your time with your family. We will have my aunt and uncle (85 and 87) and hubby's uncle (94 and a WWII veteran) for Thanksgiving. For a few hours we will once again be the youngsters. That don't happen often anymore LOL!
Response: I'm glad you liked the card! I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving :)
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful Thanksgiving card! The hardest thing about living in Alaska, is being so far from old friends and family. One thing that's great is people tend to adopt each other for the holidays. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Hi Sherry, I'm so glad you liked the card! I can imagine it's hard living in Alaska, but I'd love to see it someday <3
Comment: Thanks for your Halloween card! It came almost in time... :D
We had a nice little Halloween party with our neighbors this year. It was fun for the kids and I realized that my son will go Trick-`r-Treating next year as well. He was so excited about all the kids running around outside in the dark! :D But all told, Halloween is not the big deal in Germany. Almost no decorations, only 4 groups of kids were asking for sweets. But we do our best! :)
Response: You are welcome. Sounds like you had a nice time! :)
Comment: Shirley, Thank you for the ATC--I love the old-
fashioned Turkey, pumpkin, and other delicious fall harvests. I love this time of year--we have now gotten to days in the 70's and later this week, highs in the 60's. However, I will believe that when it really happens. Some other front will interfere with that and shift winds back from the Gulf and we end up warm and humid again. We don't have fall leaves at all, but the cooler temps are such a relief after 6 months of summer heat and humidity. That change is one that is always on my list of things I'm thankful for at Thanksgiving.Thanks for the nicely made ATC--I'm getting hungry for that turkey already!
Response: You are so very welcome! I love this time of year too and am thankful for the beautiful fall foliage we get here. Bring on Thanksgiving! :D
Comment: I've enjoyed all the goodies and swaps sent to me and this one is no exception. Love the cute card and matching envelope you must have printed, very cute and all the goodies. Thank you for being an awesome partner! Happy Halloween!
Comment: Thanks for the PC - funny thing, I sent the EXACT same PC to my partner! And you are correct, I don't like coffee (unless you put lots of flavor, sugar and very little coffee in it), but I do like images of coffee cups and tea cups, and I have a lot of coffee PCs, so as long as I didn't have to drink it, I still enjoy the swap.
Response: Oh wow, what are the chances of that happening?! I'm glad you like the postcard though :D
Comment: Thanks Shirley for the really nice photo card. Living in Florida in the fall, we don't see things like that. Reminds me of up north. I miss those cool days and pretty colors. Always can use up the extras!
Response: You are very welcome and I'm glad you enjoyed the card too! :D
Comment: Hello Shirley! Thanks for your happy mail for me ðŸ’•. I love how neat everything looks!!! It really shows your effort and caring for the swap, I'm looking forward to use what you sent me on my halloween crafts! Thanks once again ðŸ¤— And greetings from chile!
Comment: Super cute deco! I cannot wait to play and pass this along. Thank you! You probably know my address by heart by now, don't you? lol I don't mind either. It's always a joy to receive something from you.
Response: Ha ha, I'm beginning to! I don't mind though. I know what you like now it's fun to send you stuff :D
Comment: Hi Shirley! Thank you so much for the cute kitty Halloween card and the little goodies you sent along with the card. I loved reading abut your son wanting to be the Red Power Ranger 4 years running! My granddaughter (6 now) wants to be a princess EVERY year also--she rotates between all the Disney princesses ;+) Hope your Halloween is happy and fun!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! Kids are just adorable aren't they?? <3
Comment: WOW! I have never seen a sheep post card before. I love it! The butterflies will come in handy. I envy you your graphics program. I bet you can't wait for Autumn. We want to take another trip to the New England area to enjoy the foliage. Sounds like yoi will be busy cooking in the fall. Enjoy!
Response: So glad you liked everything! I had a great time putting it together for you. Yes, I can't wait for Autumn and all my yummy baking! :D
Comment: Nice graphics designed card. So all you need is ink printer and computer graphic and of course your creativity! TXS!
I use a lot of Stampin'Up! Items. Contact me for more infoðŸ˜âœ‚ï¸
Response: Ha ha, yes, I love making my own cards and envelopes. I create my own templates by drawing them with a design program too. Then I just layer the graphics in the design that I like, print and assemble :)
Comment: Thank you for the sweet card and cute Halloween goodies. My son is 4. His birthday is Halloween so he'll be 5 on the day. He's my little pumpkin! He also loves the red power ranger! â¤ï¸ðŸ’Œ
Comment: Thank you Shirley, for the covered envelop! Also thanks for the extra goodies and the nice recipe. I'll try it soon ... when my man isn't eating at home, he finds melted cheese disgusting, but not me :-D
Response: You are welcome, I hope you like the recipe! <3
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely postcard! Yes, we are doing fine. We were not affected like so many others were. It's so sad to drive around and see all of a family's possessions set out for the garbage. It's just heartbreaking.
Response: It's awful what happened, but I'm glad that you and your family are safe. <3
Comment: Thank you for such a very cute envelope. I am sure I will be pleased when I open it on Day 3. I appreciate the resend so quickly. If the other ever appears I will let you know.
Have a great September.
Response: Thank you, I made the envelope. I'm glad you like it! :D
Comment: Thank you for that card and the cute extras. It was so much fun to create my little spot on it. I hope you will enjoy it when it comes back to you. I am sorry for the late rating. Please excuse that it has been a busy time here.
Response: I'm glad you had fun with it. No problem about the late rating, everyone gets busy now and then! <3
Comment: Thanks a lot for your lovely and very yummy looking card! We're certainly having nice weather here - it's sunny and dry and has finally cooled off a bit. I've been to Rhode Island once and loved it!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you got the card and liked it. It's very cool here in RI today, in the middle 60's. I can't believe it since it was blazing hot last week! :)
Comment: Yeah !! Got the snowman card in the mail today! Love the extra touch of using the Christmas stamp too! I totally blanked out on using one on the ones I sent out....Thank you for the cute card :)
Response: You are so welcome, I'm glad you like it. I've been doing a few Christmas swaps and was so happy to see that I had leftover stamps from last Christmas! :)
Comment: Thank you for the floral postcard! I appreciate that you checked out my profile and made something according to my interest. The flowers in a carved out squash as a vase is such a unique twist on Fall decoration. Enjoy the rest of your summer! :)
Response: You are very welcome, I'm glad you like it :)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! I hope you are also having a nice day. I'm not ready for autumn yet....I need to soak up more warmth and sunshine before the Michigan winter plunges me into cold despair. Take care!
Response: Glad you like the card, enjoy the rest of your summer! :)
Comment: Hi Shirley

Response: Thank you, I'm so glad you liked the envelope and the goodies inside :)
Comment: Hi Shirley. Your flipbook was beautiful, thank you...but the only thing is that I did not know it was a flipbook when I was opening the envelope and I used my letter opener so...I ended up cutting off one of the flaps of the book :[ BUT regardless I loved reading your letter and I hope to find the time to write back to you :] Thank you for hosting
Response: Sorry about that! I thought I had put 'slit sides to open' on the back, which is what I usually do but I guess I forgot this time. I'm glad you liked it though.
Comment: Hi! Another Shirley I just loved your postcard to send back to you. I do miss the lilacs here as they will not grow in this climate. Too warm. Thank you for the recipe, I will be giving that to my daughter as her children enjoy things like that. Shirley
Response: Thank you! I can't wait to add it to my collection of used postcards. Lilacs are just so beautiful. So sorry they don't grow where you are, I would miss them terribly.
Comment: Thanks so much for the cards!! You did an awesome job picking them for me, I love them all! The elephants are so cute and I love the vintage and the black and white one with the rabbit. :) Such fun!!
Also, where do you find such cute non-tourist postcards? I want to get into some of the postcard swaps but don't know how to get them in fun designs.
Response: Hi there! I'm SO glad you like everything I sent. I get all my postcards on Amazon. They have a HUGE variety of non-tourist postcards. :)
Comment: Hello! What a sweet deer notecard. Welcome to Swap-Bot! What kind of cards do you like to play? I went to Savers on Monday! Found some books, stationery, and beautiful fabric. Thanks for sharing about your weekend!
Response: You are welcome, I'm glad you liked it! We play a variety of cards, mostly Rummy or Cards Against Humanity. Sometimes we play other games as well. I love Savers, always find great deals there :)
Comment: Thank you for the foxes card. I actually liked this card. It reminded me of the family of foxes that lived in a field by the Water Plant where my husband worked. He and his co-worker would set on the steps in front of the building and watch them playing and would throw food to them. Good memories from many years ago.
Response: Aw, that's great! I'm so glad you liked the postcard :)
Comment: Hello Shirley,
Thank you for the variety of papercrafting supplies you sent me for this swap. I like the variety and I look forward to using the supplies you sent over the next months.
Response: Hi Barb, I'm glad you liked everything! :)
