Comment: My goodness, WOW. I feel so blessed to have been the receiver of such a wonderful parcel. I'm not sure what is in the Christmas gift, but the recipe and the work that went into creating the folder for the recipe was stunning. The two hand made cards are so beautiful and as if you had made them with me in mind. I love the use of your language, this makes the card even more special to me, thank you so much for the translations. I love everything, and I'm sure I will love the wrapped gift too. I wish you and your loved ones the very best this holiday season.
Comment: Oh my goodness Beate! The card is beautiful! I've never received a pop-up card before - it must have taken so long to make. I think it may even be too beautiful to use! I've put it up on my windowsill to look at every morning. Thank you so much! And for all the extras! xo
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful hand drawn envelope and ATC, Beate. I lived & sailed with a Norwegian man for 5 years & always wished I had traveled to Norway with him so he could have shown me your beautiful country. Ha det bra!
Comment: ❤️💛💚💙💜❤️ Wow, you really brightened my day today. What an amazing package, everything in it is beautiful and I love how you did the Christmas card with your language and then mine. You took my breath away, thank you so much for making my day ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
PS - I totally agree with the kissing paragraph - I think everywoman thinks that way, pass one test, but not the big one! Good luck 😀

Comment: Why, thank you so much, Beate, for the zentangle page and the zentangle envelope! My husband and I looked at them in awe! Your work is amazing!! Wow! Also thank you for the postcard- is the island called a tooth? I tried to translate the name on the card & it said "with a tooth". It looks pretty cold! Thanks again! Have a great day!
Comment: What a great card! You are very talented and used so many techniques on it. The sketch on your envelope was darling, showing your sadness at the time ... hope you are smiling now!!!! Happy swapping, your Bot Buddy, Phyllis
Comment: Hi! Thank You!!! I got your ATC. I love the black and white. How beautiful with the flower, pearl, lantern framing. Thanks also for the Heidi Swapp card extras..really cool. I only recently found ATCs, and I am, like you, lock g them! They really bring out the artist in me, and challenge me to be better! Thanks again for everything!! Hope we have another chance to swap!
Comment: Takk for ATCet med frimerke og bref du sendte. Your letter in Norwegian colours was a delight to read, especially your translation of Aasen's text. Thank you, too, for the tape samples, especially the red and white Nordic knit pattern: very appropriate! I have never been to Norway, but I am thinking of visiting Trondheim and Alesund this summer, when the days are looooong.
