Comment: I apologize for not rating this sooner! I thought for sure I had!
She's wonderful! I love her eyes.
Thanks also for the goodies. That's funny about your father's address. Every time I have to say Quail Trail, I feel like there should be a Dr. Suess book about it.
Comment: Thank you so very much for the beautiful Gothic Arch. You do such very lovely work.
I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas (I know how exhausting it can be ðŸ˜).

Comment: Hi Raven! Thank you so much for the ATC. Great job. I can understand how it was a bit of a tricky one. Thank you also for the extras. Love your gel pen artwork. Funny, but just the other day I thought I should get some more gel pens in the near future. Looking at your colouring, I definitely have to get some soon. :) Take care.
Response: ahhh,,, whew,,, glad you are happy with my work,,,Thank you
Comment: Hi Raven! How wonderful to swap together again! Your little boy is so precious in his little sailor suit with his chubby cheeks. Such a cute image and your accents are just great. Thank you, also, for the cute wooden hearts--I'll have fun using those in my own art!
Comment: Love all the technique you used... Amazing horse images... Great vintage-y stripe background silver edging was great I am a big fan of putting a slightly smaller atc main on a larger contrasting background to crest a frame .. It really sets the Atc off great color choice ! And I got two!! Thank you very much ..,
Comment: Raven, this is LOVELY! I adore vintage Asian themes in general, and this is...well, spectacular! Thank you for a beautiful Gothic arch ATC, and for the sweet extra charms. It's a joy to swap with you.
Comment: Lovely as usual, Miss Raven...do you think the lady is Joan Crawford? In my mind, she is Joan Crawford...but nice, not Mommy Dearest! Thank you also for the cool stickers; I've never done digi, although I'm intrigued by it.
Response: yes she is the Lady Joan Crawford, the movie star,,I picked her because of the dress she was wearing..just seemed that I had stuff that matched all her colors..I would just fade away without my digital artwork..lol
Comment: Thanks for the ATCs Raven! The wonder of zentangling is that it's a kind of guided doodling meditation, not about perfection or originality, so no worries! I like the flowers with the little faces peeking out best!
Response: I am so glad you are ok with my work,,,Thank you
Comment: when I saw this lovely atc I immediately thought "elegant" the image the colors the placement...everything went together perfectly and I am so glad I got you as a partner...thanks so much..love it...really appreciate the extras I will use them sparingly to make them last......

And I really love the jeweled embellishment in the bottom left corner--unusual. Thanks for the notepad--I'm almost out paper in the one I keep by the phone, so this will be a great replacement. Thanks for hosting!
Response: Oh I am so glad my card arrived ok and even more so that you liked her.. I have had had so much trouble with the mail lately,,I found her on google images,,I do remember where,,happy you can use the notepad,,Thank you
Comment: Hi Raven. I love your purple pin-up. I'm thinking it could be in memory of Prince. So sad that he is gone. Anyway, it almost looks like your sketched the pin up. Did you? Thanks also for the lil purple memo pad. Perfect size for my wallet. Thanks for every thing. Love it!! Till next time...

Response: Ahhh you just made my day...Thank you .. Hope you have a great Birthday
Comment: You always make me smile, Raven...today it was your note that did it! A checkerboard? Clearly, since your ATC is not a checkerboard, your imagination is larger than you think it is...love this pretty black and red ATC, and also the great images you included!
Response: Ahhh you just made my day...Thank you ..

Comment: Raven, this is so PRETTY! Thank you for a lovely Gothic arch ATC, and for all the adorable Valentine extras...I have a special file folder for my Valentine embellishments, and now I can't wait for February to roll around again. (Okay, that's not quite true...I prefer to enjoy spring, summer, and fall before we get to February again!)
Response: Thank you.. I am so glad you liked what I made for you,,,yes lets have a little bit of summer first,,,,I love February too It is my Bday month,,

And all sorts of vintage women and children...let's face it; I love them all! Thank you for a truly lovely ATC, and for all the sweet sparkles, Raven!
Response: you just made my day I am so glad you liked what I made for you,,,this was a fun swap,,,Thank you and I love the vintage too, I would say my favorite swap theme

Response: you just made my day I am so glad you liked what I made for you,,,this was a fun swap,,,Thank you
Comment: Thanks for the ATC's. I don't think the type of envie had any thing to do with it being open. The cuts were too nice. I some times think people open them looking for money. Anyway, have a Happy Holiday.
Response: I think the second atc was better anyway,,lol
Comment: As a matter of fact, I DO like this adorable ATC...very much, in fact! Opening your envelope was like opening a Christmas present...a beautiful and festive ATC, and gazillions of little extra treats! Thank you so much, Raven!
Comment: Hi Raven, thanks for the fun ATC's! I haven't tried coloring with gel pens yet - I like the sparkle! Interestingly, I got 3 pieces of mail today, all from fellow North Carolinians - what are the odds?? Have a great day!
Response: I am so glad you are happy with what I made for you..Gel pens is a pain to use so I don't use them to often ,,,Thank you and maybe there are more Crafters in NC than I though,,lol
Comment: Thanks for the super cool Elvira ATC! I love the saying at the bottom. The day of the dead skull is a super cool too! Almost looks like the yellow green gel pen could be BLACKLIGHT reactive! =) Happy Halloween!
Response: you just made my day, I am so glad you are happy with what I made for you..That skull was my favorite, it was hard to let it go..lol....Thank you
Comment: Thank you so much for the great ATCs. I used a cigarette ad for my card as well. And thanks for sending two!! Your indecision worked well for me...lol. Oh..and the extra gel art ATC is also much appreciated. Oh ya...and the little bags of glitter. It's like Christmas in October! Thanks again!
Response: you just made my day, I am so glad you are happy with what I sent you..Thank you
Comment: OHHH, I LOVE THEM! A pair of beautiful sugar skulls. Just adorable. Love - Love! I'm dressing Day of the Dead - with a Sugar Skull mask for Halloween. Working on my outfit now! Thanks for wonderful artwork.
Response: you just made my day..Glad you liked them..Thank you
Comment: Your ACT is beautiful and I love the little flip flop notepad. I suspect my 8 year old granddaughter will give me the "I would like to have that" look when she sees it. She loves her flip flops! Thank you so much
Response: ahh how cute, yes the grand kids know how to work it...lol,,I know mine does... Thank you

Response: Wow the is the nicest thing anyone has ever said about my work..Thank you
Comment: Hello Raven . . . thank you for the TWO gorgeous kitty ATC's . . . kitties are near and dear to my heart and these two are definitely keepers! The one peeking out from among the orange flowers with his big, beautiful eyes and the other--so stately! I can't say enough good things about them--I'm just lucky to have them!
Response: Girl really know how to make someone feel good about themselves,,I am thrilled you liked the kittens..Thank you for the encouraging words and a great rating...
Comment: Hello Raven!

Comment: Wow! I just received the darling Tea and Coffee ATCs yesterday, and today I got your fabulous Zebra ATCs. I think the BIG zebras are so unusual. It is so amazing what can be found sometimes; you never know what will appear. Thanks for sending two. Pairs of things are really cool.

Response: Oh wow.. you just made my day...I feel honored .Thank you..
Comment: Hi Raven! Thanks for your insight into James. This was really a great study and I was really reminded of things I know, but needed a refresher on! :) It is always good to hear what others learn as well. :) Can't wait for the next one!
Response: You know I feel the same way,, I learn a lot from others and sometime I see another way of looking at things..Thank you
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful cards. I like them both. The Victorian lady and the pink roses. Is the Raven your signature card?
Response: Ohh Glad you like them..I just found that raven on a goggle search and had to make something with it,,and that card turned out to be my most favorite one that I ever did..I had a hard time letting it go..
Comment: Raven, Thank you so much to the wonderful ATC with the bird and the # 1 and the extra ATC. You so such a nice job on your ATCs. It will always be exciting to see that you are my partner in swaps.
Response: ahhh you are so kind, makes swapping with you a special pleasure..Thank you for the comment and the great rating
Comment: Thanks for the ATCs. The burning-technique on the other one was interesting (at first I thought the swap smelled a bit like cigarette smoke, but then I noticed the burnt edges and it made me smile :p) and the rubber stamping on the other one gave nice dimension to it :)
Response: I am so happy you liked them the burning edge thing always makes me nervous but it does look cool
Comment: Thanks for two atc's and for hosting this swap. I really enjoyed the folding technique and shape you used on these, and the vintage lady images were so lovely. Weaving cord and ribbon through the green one made it just fabulous! <3<3
Response: you just made my day..Glad you liked them was a little worried the ribbon might too much
Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful wolf card! I love crows, so the pairing of them is so nice. :) I also like how you "gift-wrapped" your stiff base with the background paper--I may have to try that technique. Your heart is for the swap ATC, but I have to say your zentangle is beautiful, really nice work. I've done a few, but haven't been able to get as good as you with it yet. Thank you!
Comment: Hello Raven,
Thank you for the two ATCs you sent me for this swap. I really love both of the ATCs--the more mystical one and then the more realistic one. They both will be a wonderful addition to my Astrology Series. I hope we continue to have opportunities to swap with one another not only on this swap, but on other swaps on Swap-bot. You are a wonderful swapper.
Comment: CONGRATULATIONS! You achieved somethng I thought couldn't be achieved and that was make this insect look" cute" and even not look so "ugly." Both of your ATCs will be a great addition to my Insect ATC series. I look forward to our continued swapping experiences. Until we meet up again, Happy Swapping to you!!!
Comment: Whoo, do not ever complain about international shipping time :) Your letter arrived yesterday after only four days. That was really quick, considering the Easter Holidays. Thank you so much for two wonderful ATCÂ´s. They are adorable. I love the cute little Easterbunny stickers.
Comment: Wow! I can't believe I've received your ATCs already. Usually I send mine out way before I ever receive one from my partner:) Thanks so much I really love BOTH of them! They are great! Is that a peacock stamp? - I love it!
Comment: Thanks for the extras! I love your cards, very pretty. Your zentangle is neat. I just made one the other day. Came out pretty good. And the card you sent it all in will be awesome all cut up hehe.
Comment: I wish I could give you three hearts. Thank you so very much for the beautiful ATCs. I have only done one zentangle card before as well and I loved the "peaceful" nature of doing these. Love yours. Best wishes.
Comment: Hi Raven, Thanks so much for the great ATC's!! I love them all! Also, I love what you did with the zentangles! I have not tried it yet, so thanks for sharing! Again, thanks for the great ATC's!! Nancy (grannystamper)
Comment: WOW !!! Amazingly beautiful, espacially the personnalized ATC. The color are vivid and my favourite ones. I'm so happy I asked this private swap with you to discover Digital Art. I'm still really impressed with your talent. Also thanks for the zentangles, I had no clue what it was. =D
Comment: To me if you do digital it should be embellished-a digital copy glued to art paper is a copy
Response: Sorry you feel that way all my digital art is made by me and it
is all original ,,it's Free handed digital drawing in photoshop,,I just print it out once I draw it and make a back for it..It takes a real artist digital or not to create drawings like mine..It is an insult to ask a true digital artist to add or alter work that they spent hours or sometimes days making,, no way...Sorry but that's the way it is..
Comment: Thank you so much for the cool skull ATC! The use of black and white makes it so striking. The extra ATC is gorgeous!!! And so different from the skull, they really stand out against each other :)
Comment: HI RAVEN, THANKS FOR THE GREAT ATC'S! I AM A 6 YEAR BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR!! I LOVE YOUR ATC'S! NANCY (GRANNYSTAMPER)
Response: It's people like you that I am so proud of,, because no one really knows how strong a person you are..Thank you for joining my swap and I pray that there will be a cure any day now for this awful thing..
Comment: I love them! The sun is always my favorite as I have a sun tatoo! LOL - I was looking that the flowers and thought how pretty they look like dogwoods and then I turned it over and saw that you are from NC too so they must be dogwoods! I can't wait until the dogwoods are in bloom again. Not a winter gal. Thank you for the beautiful reminder of spring! - Cass
Comment: You excelled yourself Raven. They are exquisite and match my taste perfectly. My daughter will be tickled pink when she sees them as she is a great OW fan. I love the cat too. You are very generous. I can't keep up with you...you are so fast...I haven't even started mine yet! Anyway, I love them. Thank you so much and Happy New Year
Comment: As always, Raven, the ATCs were beautifully done and so imaginative. I can't believe you found such wonderful pictures with an AT sign and a white blaze on them! Tim was so thrilled to see them. Greetings from your neighbors!
Comment: I love the ATCs that you sent! Thanks so much for the extra! Hope you don't mind, i'm going to recylce the notecard that you used to send them in, the flowers and background are so pretty for an ATC! OOH! Also the dragonfly stamp that you used to mail your swap! :)
Comment: OK so even though there's a bit of confussion the cards are really nice,thanks so much =) Pat
UPDATE:Raven thanks so much for resending the cards.They are beautiful,lucky me that ended up with 4 of your pretty cards.YAY!!!!
Comment: Apologize for being slow to rate. I got the ATC last week but managed to "stuff it" down deep in my bag. Cleaning out last night I found it. It's now on display in the front of my collection. Thank you.
Comment: i absolutely love these atcs,i want that avator,wish i could give more hearts also the prezzie,i know exactly where i'm using it,my daughter had a dress the same colour at her formal and she had little flowers in her hair that match perfectly with this dress so it'll be on her scrapbook page,thank you sooo much,i also love the card,thank you for a fantastic swap,take care lizxx
Comment: Thanks guys for the great ATC's. The boys loved them and the only bad part was deciding who got what beautiful ATC. That was a lot of work put into them and they sure turned out great! Keep up the good work, Jesse!
Comment: Loretta! I too am glad you go to send to me for this one! Thanks for sharing your world with me! Niki is so exotic! How cute that she sits with you while you make ATCs! Has she ever bitten you? I myself am not Native American, although I always wished I was but I still have a lot of love for the people and culture;) Raven is just plain and simple one of my favorite names. My neices name is Raven and she is very special to me! Thanks so much for all the great cards!
Comment: Got my ATC's today, they are very cute!! Coloring was my favorite thing to do when I was a little girl! So this bring back some memories!!! Thanks for making them, and for the extras!!! Love them!! =D
Comment: LORETTA! I had no idea you were sending to me for this swap! You got this done fast, I haven't even gotten there yet:P Thanks so much for the Heiny' ATC! Also, what a cute idea for an ATC, a coloring book one!! This is the first coloring book ATC I've ever received!! That makes this a one of a kind in my collection!! Thanks so much!!! â™¥
Comment: I ams sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you but the internet wouldn't work for a week and I have had the flu, kindly given by my son! The butterly atc's are beautiful and thank you for the extra one, best wishes, Cheryl
Comment: My heavens Loretta, your cards are so nice. And to get 4. Wow.. My collection is on it's way.. I love the Indian one. It is amazing and so are the others. Thanks again for the wonderful ATC's. and so fast too. Wish I could give you more than one heart.
Comment: 5+! I finally got some of your works of art, full circle eh? Anyway they are so lovely. I gave a heart because the day that they arrived was a realy tough day for me and the "flew in bringing love" to my dismalness. (I do appoligize for taking well over a week to get to rating you, oops been busy.)
Comment: What a wonderful little package to open! I love the ATC; you really did a great job of capturing me on it. I think I'll go have a cup of hot raspberry tea and contemplate my good fortune in meeting you so often in the swaps! Thanks so much.
Response: Believe me when I say that I feel lucky to have met you too..You are just a real nice person..
Comment: These ATCs are amazing! I love all three of them. They are beautiful and just slightly creepy. I suppose gargoyles often do that to people, but your ATCs just reinforced it. We are indeed neighbors. One of the past principals where I teach lives in Hayesville. And our teams play Hayesville.
