Comment: I love everything you have sent me!! Thank you A LOT for hedgehogs, they are tasty :0)
Response: The hedgehogs were sweets for after dinner on Christmas day. When I saw them, I knew I had to save them for you :)
Glad it arrived safely and you like it all. Your package has not arrived yet, but I'm sure it will be soon. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Love your digital work..Great style..Great colors and of course very creative..I would trade with you anytime...Thank you and keep up the great work...
Response: Aw...Thanks. I am flattered. I'd love to trade, but maybe later in the year. I'm trying to cut down on swaps at the moment. Thanks for the rating and heart and lovely comments. Cheered me up no end :)
Comment: Thankyou Suzie, for the lovely creative Garden Fower's Alphabet ATCs. They are so nice and I love them in my collection. Thankyou Susie for the lovely swaps for the Wildflower's and Garden Flower's ATCs and thankyou for the papers, love Jennifer.
Response: Hi Jennifer. Glad you liked them. Hugs, Susie.
I LOVE it ALL! You are an extremely talented crocheter & i am so chuffed that i got you for my partner!
The sheep jumped out first, ran around the room making friends with the flock in the living room before bounding up the stairs to the bedroom flock where she is still getting to know the rather large assortment of breeds up there ;o)
Then came the rest................................Wowzer girl! You really are awesome!
Thankyou so much for all the time & effort you put into my neverending box of goodies! I love the bag & the coasters are perfect as i have had a little revamp of my living room & they go really well in here.The tissue pouch including the tissues themselves are brill & the little sheepy pillow is way too cute for words.....................thankyou!
Thankyou also for the FQs, esp the sheepy one ;o)
I love the little photo album too.
You really have put an awesome parcel together & i really appreciate the time & care & effort that you spent on everything for me! Thankyou!
You deserve a thousand hearts for this swap!
Hugs, Nicki xx
Response: Nicki, I am relieved A) that it got there, and B) that you liked it.
I thought sheepie would be happier with you. I have a large flock too. Actually they used to travel around on the back shelf of the car, but having changed cars, there is nowhere for them to sit. So, being short of space, I thought she would like a new home, and she fitted nicely into the bag. I will be in contact, by the way. Thanks so much for the rating and hearts. It was fun to do, but I did worry about my delay :)
Comment: Thankyou Susie for the beautiful crosstitch garden Flowers ATC's. I love them They are so lovely and so beautifilly done, I will treasure them and so pleased with them, and such alot of work , thankyou love jennifer.
Comment: I absolutely loved everything!!! This was so great, I loved the purse, and the pictures, and the cow, and everything!!! Everything was and is so perfect I cannot put into words just how much I loved it all!!!!!!!
Response: I'm so pleased you liked it all. I wasn't sure that you'd want a bag with a cow on it. I had planned to do the cross stitch design in crochet, but then thought it better to do it plain. As you can see I relented and put the wee cow on one side. I'm relieved it got to you and that you like it. Thanks for the heart rating and the message you sent too. Hugs, Susie.
Comment: Oh, Susie! Where to start? I love the overaall flower theme w/the fabric and of course the hand made knit items (the pear, the envie, the satchels...) are just fantastic. I was so excited by the smell as I unwrapped it & then began the feast for the eyes! Thank you so much for taking so much time to make this a special swap for me :)
Response: Glad you liked it all. Wasn't sure whether to go with a flower theme or animals lol.
Thanks for the rating and heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful ATC's. I love them both. I especially love the bookmark you made me too, its beautiful.I love the different ideas you used to make everything, and don't worry about the bookmark being lamenated as I will still use and that way it wont get damaged. (I'm a little hard on bookmarks as I read lots.)
Response: Glad you liked it all. Thanks for the rating and the heart :)
Comment: What a great package! Two blue & yellow ATCs, and a bookmark, all in an awesome handmade card. I especially liked the 3-dimensionality of the butterfly on the ATC.
Response: I liked the butterfly too. I thought it was worth a try. The tape on the bottom was to stop it sticking permanently so that it could be folded again. I forgot to mention that when I sent it.Glad you liked the swap contents. Thanks for the comments, rating and heart. Its appreciated.
Comment: Thankyou Susanna for the beautiful wild flowers ATCs. I love the Iris one, hey are lovely,thankou for the winnie the pooh flannel and I love the winnie the pooh embelishments thankyou jennifer.
Response: Glad you liked it all. It was fun to put together.
Comment: Can't give you the heart because you was late but I do like the atc you made me. You used stickers but there was work put into the background that you did, lovely. Thanks also for the extra atc.
Comment: What a funny idea! Thanks for the nice card. I give a heart to appreciate that you let me know that you are sending late, for the extra "Greeting from Scotland" atc, the postcard and the real stamp on the envelope. I like your package. Thank you.
Response: Glad it arrived safely and that you liked it. Thank you :)
Comment: You deserve multiple stars!! I love both dishcloths!! They are beautiful! Almost too beautiful to use. The sachet is so cute and I can't wait to fill it. Lavender is one of my favorite scents. And I thank you so much for the beads and findings to add to my very meager collection. Using a postcard for your note was a clever idea also. : ) Everything you sent was above and beyond! Thanks sooooo much!!
Response: I'm glad everything reached you. Thanks for the rating. Enjoy :)
Comment: Thankyou for your flowers ATCs and for the Teddys. If you can draw them digitally then you can certainly do it by hand (I wouldn't have any idea how to do digital drawings, do you have a tablet. As for painting just have a go everyone can paint and you'll get better as you go. Cheers Linda
Response: Thank you. The beauty of doing it digitally is that you can erase mistakes over and over till you get it right, without spoiling what you've already achieved, which helps with the motivation to learn. You also don't use stacks of paper!! I have come on in leaps and bounds and that also transfers to paper drawing. I do both, but don't always feel the paper drawings are as good as the digital. Yes, I use a tablet.
Comment: Love this postcard.What a beautiful cat, I wouldn't think it was wild just by looking at it. Peace, Pat (I would say our 1st group swap was a success!)
Response: Thank you Pat :) The wild cat looks like a domesticated cat, but it's temperament is totally different. Glad you enjoyed the first group swap. I will be putting a new one up in the next few days :) Thanks for the rating and heart
Comment: What a great swapper you are! Not only TWO great discloths in my favorite colors, but some yarn too, and a cute little card with miniature knitted cloths - so cute! I love the yarn you used on the card - what is it?
Response: I made the miniatures on the card from 4ply cotton, but I got the yarn from EBay with no ballbands, so all I know is that it is cotton. I think its what you would call lace weight? I liked the colour combo. Pleased you liked it all. Thanks for the rating:)
Comment: WOW !!! I got my swap today. It's wonderful. My grandson, Ethyn-he just turned a year old, has claimed the Pooh bear you sent. I'll let him play with it for awhile then it will go on my shelf withthe rest of my collection. I love the book mark, the ATC, the pooh pages and the photo. Thank you so much for the address labels, I needed them. I have the stuff to do them but my printer in on the blink. But again, Thank you! Hope you get yours soon.
Response: So glad Pooh has found a good home. My hug is really too large since I moved and share a home with my partner. Our house is tiny, so I am having to downsize.
Love to little Ethyn, and enjoy your swap. Thanks for the heart,
Comment: This was soo nice... I LOVED IT.. and i really appreciate you making an extra ATC with the scrabble theme as well as incorporating Hello Kitty into it...
its sooooo cute..
THANKS A BUNCH for joining my swap.:)
Response: When I saw you were a hello kitty fan, I couldn't resist. So pleased you recognised my drawing lol. Thanks for the rating and heart,
Comment: WOW!!! Thank you so very very much for the special, personalized, lovely ATCs!!! I wish I could give you more hearts for this swap :)
Response: I had great fun with yours :) And, modest as I am, I liked my pansies so much that I've used them for address and 'made- by' labels, as you'll see next time we swap, (as I'm sure we will!):)So i'm really pleased pleased you like them. Thanks for the heart,
Comment: Oh My what a great package full of goodies,, atc's and a cute note card.. I love these 2 atc's,,the funky is so beautiful and I love the colors...The one made of the foam stuff is so cool. Now this is using your imagination and what atc's should be about .. .How did you ever think of doing this... You sure are a very creative and talented person...I Thank you with a heart for sharing your art with me...
Response: Lol! I'm glad you liked them. The foam one was a bit of a risk. The foam had come from packaging, i think from the Bind it all machine, and I couldn't throw it. Then when doing the funky ATC, it suddenly ocurred to me that it might work well, so I gave it a try. Pleased you liked it. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: These cards are VERY special to me. Not only are they Greenman, but come from Scotland. You are my first partner from there. Visiting Scotland has been a dream of mine all my life. My family came from Lauder area many, many years ago. Sage & Trent will also be so excited to receive their own mail. You are too kind for including them. You have made this the best swap ever. Hugs & 1000 Hearts. Mona
Response: I'm so glad you like everything. I really enjoyed researching the Greenman. Aberdeen is further north than Lauder, but we pass near it when we go south to England. Scotland is beautiful and I hope you get to visit it sometime soon. Hugs to Sage and Trent,, and thanks for the heart:)
Comment: Absolutely beautiful ATCs. I wish I could leave 10 hearts for beautiful artwork on these, plus the wonderful extras.
I apologize for being late with my rating.
Response: I'm so relieved they had arrived. I was beginning to think I'd have to do them again, not that that would have been bad as I enjoyed doing them. Glad you liked them and thank you for the heart :)
Comment: Thank you for the great cards and the Scotland map Postcard. Hopefully my knee starts feeling better. I am having some post-op issues with my cartilage. Go figure. Is that car a Scottish car? My husband wants to go golfing in Scotland some day. Thanks again!
Response: Hiya! No the car was Italian I think. Tell your husband that Donald Trump is building a huge Golf course and complex just north of Aberdeen. Not sure when it will be opened, but something for him to think about...an excuse to visit Scotland :)
Glad you liked the ATCs. Thank you for the rating and heart, and look after those knees. I'm sorry about the cartilage problems. I hope it sorts itself out very quickly.
Comment: Hi Susie, Thank you for the Hedgehog ATC and Postcard! My boyfriend was there when I opened it, and he really liked them, too. He's a tough sell, so I'd say you did good :-) Lol! It is a cute little drawing. Thanks again.
Response: Oh thank you :) Tell your boyfriend thank you too. I appreciate it...and the heart. Just glad you liked him.
Comment: Tanks for the owl and extras, I really like the colorful atc, how did you do that?
Response: Thanks. For the first time ever, I forgot to photograph the owl swaps before I sent them, so I can't remember what I sent you. I suspect it was one of the kaleidoscope ATCs. I did them digitally, using Coral Painter X. Glad you liked it. Thanks for the heart,
Response: Glad you liked...and as a celebration of the fact that you are the 100th person to rate me a heart, I'll be sending you a little suprise something in the post. Should be fairly easy since you are a big fan of Scotland. I have one or two ideas :)
Thanks again, and watch for the post (only not for a week or two, as you know I'm a bit behind at the mo!!)
Comment: Hi Susie,
Thank you for the darling Frog and Ground hog ATC. That was sure nice of you to send them along with a wonderful PC of a frog. You are a real artist.
Thank you again. Have a great weekend
Comment: WOW..you out did yourself on this atc's ,,,they are amazing,,I love them, you do such great work,,And I see lots of info in them about Scotland and Aberdeen,,,I love learning about other countries and I have a great grandfather from Scotland, He has passed on but I bet he would love these cards also..And the card you sent them in is wonderful also..I wish I find a way to give you more than just one heart,,,But I Thank you with the one that I have..
Response: Glad you liked them. Scotland is a great place. Thank you for the heart :)
Comment: Hi Kimmikat,
Thank you so much for the neat E ATC
It is out standing. Very pretty and different. Thank you for t he extra ATC, sticker and Christmas card. All very nice and fun.
I have a questions...how come your screen name is Kimmikat since your name is Susanna? Just wondering. : )
Response: Hiya! In answer to your question, the Kimmi part is after a village where I grew up, very dear to me, called Kimbolton. The kat part...well you can guess that from my profile :) I have used KimmiKat for a long time as it's very 'me'.
Glad you liked your swap items, Thank you for the rating and the heart, (and the message).
Comment: WOW! Thank you to my partner in Scotland, UK!! I received 1 Christmas card, 2 great ATC's (made with fabric - cool), and a way cool knitted "pocket" FILLED with tea bags. LOVE Love it! Tish
Response: I'm glad. Hope you enjoy the tea. Coincidence or what, the other two ATC's in that set look like they might be traded, as someone emailed today to ask if they could trade for them.
Hope you have a great Christmas and an even greater 2009.
Comment: Wow! I've been totally spoilt with four pairs, which is marvellous since I'm currently rebuilding a collection from practically nothing. Love them all, but specially the yin/yang ones and the sort of liquorice allsorts in purple ones. Thank you so much.
Response: Glad you like :) Enjoy and have a Merry Christmas.
Comment: I love love love my little owl! If I could give you ten hearts I would, this package was such a joy to open! Words cannot express it! I opened it while driving and practically squeaked! <3<3<3
Response: I'm so glad. He was the first piece of amigurumi I've made,so I was a little worried. Glad you like him. Thanks for the rating and heart, and have a good Nano.
Hugs, Susie (Purpletogo - Kimmikat)
Comment: I've received your package today and I LOVE everything!!!
That apron is so cute and I'll use it when I sewing. And the green purse...really useful for me and more than that is the super adorable strawberry zipper!! Thanks so much.I wish I could give you 10 heart for this.
P.S. Yuor handmade card is cute too I like it so much!
Response: I am so relieved that you like everything, especially after I'd spoilt the surprise on Flickr - how stupid of me. You work is so professional. I used to sew, but haven't for years, so I'm just getting in to it again. Plus I had to buy a cheap sewing machine in the middle of this swap as my super duper computerised sewing machine fell to bits. So I'm glad it was all worthwhile. Thank you for rating and the heart. Much appreciated :) Hugs, Susie.
Comment: Increbible detailed and unusual cards! So ARTISTIC--they are a TREASURE! Really wonderful and a joy to own!
Probably the best cards I've yet gotten on SwapBot if I were to judge by technique and creativeness!THANK YOU!
Response: I have just logged on for the first time in days (no internet as on hols) and what a wonderful comment to find. Thank you so much. I am so pleased you liked them. I really enjoyed doing them. Thank you for the rating and heart...but it's your comment which has made my day :)
Comment: Wow thanks for the extras! I loved your crows, especially since they were hand-drawn! I love hand-drawn cards, they feel much more personal! Don't give up drawing!
Response: Thank you:) I love drawing too much to give up. I have since drawn another crow and he is a little better. It's all abpout practice I think, like everything else. I am so glad you weren't disappointed. Thank you for the rating and the heart. Much appreciated :)
Comment: Thank you so very much for the awesome package you sent!!! I love the ATC and the homemade swap card...just lovely!!! I so love the coffee fabric...it is sooo cute!!! I have so many ideas on how to use it...I think it will make some very nice napkins myself!!! "Heart" for you!!!
Response: I'm pleased :) Thank you for the rating and heart.
Comment: Thanks so much for the ATC's and extras they are lovely. Sophie loves her Beanie and took it to dance with her today and you must have met my son, the key ring suits him to a tee. Thanks again.
Comment: I love the ATCs you sent! There are so creative! They really have inspired me to advance my skills!!
Response: Oh thank you:) Since I think that is one of the spin-offs of Swap-bot, I'm very pleased. I have learned so much since joining and am being artistically stretched all the time. Thanks for the rating and heart. Hugs, Susie.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful bookmarks,
and Thank you also for the ATC, and the magnet.
I really love the card where you wrote me the note. Every thing was wonderful. I'm really sorry
I hadn't rated you before. Take Care.
Response: Aww! Thanks. I'm just relieved it wasn't lost. Glad you liked it as I like making bookmarks. Thanks for rating, and the heart. Much appreciated. Until next time,
Comment: Thanks for your package with various neat things in it. Your "wooden door" is interesting, your grid prompt gives me the willies -- to me writing is about what you have to say, it's not a Chinese menu randomly chosen. The other prompts I have not problem with.
Response: Strange how everyone is diffrerent. On one of the forums I belong to, most people thought it was fun as it really made you think about things you wouldn't normally think about. Nevermind, you don't have to do it lol. Glad you liked the package generally. Thanks for rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the great cards! So many.I like that scratching off technique giving little ghost images. That is how you did that? So cool I'm going to suggest that to my kids at school when we do pastels again.
Response: Yes...thats what i did. Pleased you like it and hope your children have fun doing it too :)
Comment: I liked the laminated ones, I had never seen that done before! Thanks!
Response: I usually laminate the ones that are done in oil pastel, as it is not very nice to the touch and also isn't easy to stick things to...so the lamination helps keep everything in place when needed. Glad you liked them. Thanks for the rating and heart.
Comment: Hi received your package....The magents were nice and the extras you sent me were really beautiful... I can see that your have really read my profile and all the stuff you sent just fits. Some of the paper flowers you sent already got used .....
Response: Glad you were able to use some of the flowers and that you liked what I made. Thank you for the heart,
Comment: Thank you very much. What a very sweet and thoughtful package!!! I love the magnets, especially the pink flamingo one!!! The 2 flamingo ATC's are beautiful - and the homemade card with dolphin is way too cute!!! You are a very talented artist!!! "Heart" for you!!!
Response: Aww! Thank you. You are very kind to say so. I enjoyed the drawing bit...took me ages to get the flamingo beak right, but great fun. Thats why I love Swap-bot...it stretches me!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely ATC`s. You are so creative. I love them. And thanks for all the extras. The card is a masterpiece itself. It`s hanging on the wall in my office so everyone can admire it.
Response: LOl...thank you. You've made my day. So glad you liked it all. Thank you for the heart too.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful fabrics and little goodies!!!! The dots are perfect and the mary fabric is adorable!!! Thank you!!!!
Response: Phew! So glad it's ok. I thought the polkadot might be a bit boring, even though it was your colours, so I hoped Mary's made up for it. It is sweet.
Thanks for the rating and the heart,
Comment: Thanks for the cherry postcard. Yummy! Your own cherry tree!
Response: By sheer coincidence we actually ate that cherry today. We've been hanging on waiting for them to ripen naturally, but something had started to snack on them so we relented and picked them. They were soft and sweet. Lovely!
Thanks for the rating. Glad you liked it.
Posted the next one off to you this afternoon. Hoping you'll like that too :)
Comment: I debated how to rate since the swap was to send 20 images of various sizes and subjects. You sent more than 20 images but they were all on the small side (and basically gorillas, birds, and craft projects). I do appreciate the extras of a rubber stamp and the textured leaf papers.
Response: Fair enough. I am new to this. Just thought that collage work, especially for ATCs and card making requires smaller images, and the idea behind the craft images was to give you a variety of background textures and tones for mounting text etc.
Never mind. I'll get it right next time.Thanks for explaining.
Comment: OH WOW,your parcel came yesterday and was a wonderful package. I think you must have sent something from every topic.It was a delight i waas quite over whelmed in a nice way.I can say what i liked best because there was just more and more and more. The earings look great, something simular to what i had seen recently and liked the detail on them,I'm fairly new to dangly ones.The postcards were great shaped ones and just the right choice.My mum loves the highland cattle,a friend had dogs the same as the white one, and the teddy was just plain cute in all the Scottish clothing.BUT it did not end there, stickers, embelishments,papers,so so so much. the handmade cards were delightful.A huge thank you. I was suprised you had recorded the delivery but could see why when i opened it.
I hope you enjoy swap bot you deserve some really great envies. all the best.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it all. It's always a bit of a guess. I put different fittings in for the earrings in case you prefferred them otherwise.
I sent recorded del as I am fed up with lost items in the post, and as this was my first swap, I wanted to be sure.
Glad you liked it all and that some of it may be useful.And a big thank you for the rating, and being my first swap partner....you brave soul :)
