Comment: Hi April. Got the zine. I agree, I'd love to see a copy after it's done. Maybe we can figure out how to do that in the group. Any ideas?
PS I love your envelope. Did you print that yourself? If so, how?
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you loved the envie. No, I did not make that envelope. It was sent to me by the person that made it. Its a gelli print. :) If you go to the Gelli Arts website/youtube they have lots of videos to learn how to gelli print or for inspiration. Maybe starting a thread in the forum that people could post pictures to would be a good way to share? Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: Thanks for passing this on. Love the fortunes and other goodies. Funny story....last year my bf said he liked dark chocolate and I got him this one, and he tastes it and says 'Too dark'. He said let's try 60%, the 85% was too much.
Response: You're welcome! :) Yes, the 85% takes some getting used to, and its as high as I like. I tried the 90% (different brand) and whoa... too dark. :) Thanks for the heart! :)
Comment: When I opened the mailbox I saw that cupcake and said 'Love it' ! Happy Mail Day! Great swap, sweet extras, cute envie! I finished the PC and mailed her off.....I'm gonna steal your Cupcake idea! Thanks! = ) â™¥
Response: You are very welcome! :) I saw the cupcake on your profile and thought it would make a really cute envie for you. :) I'm really happy you enjoyed it! Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: No unfortunately I didn't take his photo. :( I had posted a pretty Cardinal and when Facebook changed settings it went away.... I should really post some of my birdie photos to my profile. What is your favorite bird?...Thank you and Merry Christmas!!
Response: You should! :) oooo... that's a tough one. I'll have to go with a category and say chubby song birds. :) Merry Christmas to you too! :) ðŸŽ„ Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely Christmas postcard that arrived today! I really love it! And thank you for making the time to doodle and write me a haiku. The weather here is awful at the moment. Very grey, wet and windy. No Christmas feeling!
Response: You're very welcome! :) Still the same here too... not Christmasy enough either! boo! Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: It was so nice of you to compliment the work on my blog, thank you very much. Thank you for the card and the stamps and my favorite is the vintage Santa postcard, thanks again, Merry Christmas!
Response: You're very welcome! :) Merry Christmas to you too! :) ðŸŽ„ Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: I love the PC and really chuckled at your stamps :-) That's happened to me before and it's interesting to see how you can arrange all those stamps on a PC and still write on it -- you did great!! Thanks again for the really nice Christmas PC. . . it'll go up with all my other Christmas cards and PCs.
Response: So glad you enjoyed it and got a laugh from the stamps! :) ðŸŽ„ Thanks for the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the pocket letters. I could not believe they both came in the same day. Both were beautiful and would give you more hearts if I could. You are a wonderful partner. Take care:)
Response: Wow! So crazy for the first one and the resend to both arrive on the same day! I'm so glad they both finally arrived though. And I'm so glad you enjoyed your letters! :D Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: Great blind contour drawings:) and thanks for the security pattern:) Still don't know what I want to do with them but I have a whole drawer dedicated to them:) I've never seen the pebbly one:) Thanks for sharing!
Response: You're very welcome! :) So glad you enjoyed! :) What I find amazing is how many different patterns there are inside these envelopes when you start looking. :) Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: I got a kick out of your zine...in art school I actually did this same kind of drawing...we were on a beach and I drew a huge piece of driftwood and got a big laugh out of it when I finally peeked at the paper...interesting indeed. thank you
Response: You're very welcome! :) So glad you enjoyed the zine! :) They are a lot of fun to look at when you are done! :) Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: With out a note I had a hard time figuring out which swap this was for. Thank you for the PC's. I esp love your blind bird drawing. The envie is beautiful too.
After your nice note I checked again and sure enough there was a lovely note from you tightly tucked against the side of the envelope. Sorry I did not see it the first time and thank you again for the lovely/fun zine. =o)
Response: Oh no! :( I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to figure out which swap it was for that way. :( Sorry! I looked at the photo I snapped before sending and there was a note in the photo for you. I'm so sorry it did not make it into the envelope though. It's not on my desk so I have no idea where it wondered off to. I'm really glad that you enjoyed the zine, pcs and envie though. :) Thank you for the heart! :) -- Yay, so glad to hear the note turned up. :) Thanks so much for letting me know, I really appreciate it. :)
Comment: Hi April I look forward to creating on your card. It has been a cooler than normal summer here, still some hot days, but I don't like winter so you are welcome to the bitter cold and snow we get this year. LOL Hugs, Donna Thanks for the stickers also! :)
Response: I'll take it! woohoo! :D You're welcome and I'm looking forward to seeing what you do on the card. :) Thanks for the heart! :)
Comment: Hello neighbor. Thank you for the beautiful butterfly ATC. I like the bold and softness of the colors you used. You have very good blending skills with the chalk.
Response: Hello! :) I'm so happy you enjoyed your ATC. :) And thanks for the compliment! The chalk I used was mostly just for shimmer as a final touch to the card. The blending was done with the pencils. Prismacolor makes a colorless blender that really smooths things together. I haven't tried it, but a paper blending stump would probably do the trick too. :) Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: Loved the envelope - didn't want to open it! The image on the card cracked me up!! And your letter was wonderful, read it twice. I never imagined chickens wanting to be cuddled - soooo cute!! Thank you so much!!!!
Response: You are very welcome! :) I'm so happy you enjoyed the art, the card and the chicken story. :D I had no idea chickens were so personable until we got these two. They are a hoot. :D Thank you for the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you for the Egg Roll food package pc. They look good and I actually like egg rolls. One thing when you put the swap name please put the whole name. You did Not put USA on your card and I had to check 2 swaps as there was also an international swap for this.
Response: You're welcome. :) Sorry! :( I'm new here and still learning.
