Comment: Nou, nog geen baby, maar wel een dikke 5 voor jouw kaart. Ik ben dol op alles wat je als achtergrond hebt gebruikt en de vogeltjes zijn te schattig. En dan alles zo keurig met de hand geborduurd, jij moet een engelen geduld hebben. Ik jaag het liever onder de naaimachine door á••( á› )á•—â™« Ik vind je postzegel ook helemaal geweldig en je handschrift is jaloersmakend. Had ik al gezegd dat ik er superblij mee ben?á••( á› )á•—â™« á••( á› )á•—â™«

Comment: Thank you, Chelle. Unfortunately your bird was left hanging by his claws after being attacked by the mean old postal machinery. (And even after your nice "Thank you Mr. Postman" stamp!) Collage IS great fun, isn't it?
Response: Oh I am so sorry... I know it's risky to send it without using a gel medium or so...but I just like them better without...
Collage is wonderful...and the Scavenger hunt is my favorite!
Thank you for your kind words and rating...and sorry again for the hurt birdie!!
Comment: Thank you for a VERY well done reflection technique ATC---It gave me the courage to get mine made and sent . . . I had to try about 5 times before getting it pretty well. You color technique is also done so well. That is something I am still working on. I know you put time, skill, and energy into this ATC and appreciate the effort. Sometimes I get something that clearly says that little to no effort had been put into making the ATC, etc. Thanks!
Response: Oh it was a tough technique...but the result after several times was nice...So glad you liked what I made you! I enjoy making ATC's...one at a time and yes I put time and effort in making them. That what it is about...
Thank you so much for your wonderful rating + â™¥!
Comment: The depth and shading on your ATC is gorgeous! And the color choices are so vibrant. I love the stacked chicks :) And the way you layered the drawing on the blue background looks so nicely matted!
Response: So happy you like them! Always a pleasure to send to you! Hope we'll meet again in a swap soon :-)
Thanks for the hearted 5!!

Comment: its so beautiful. have to try this too to sew with a machine on paper.i like this idea. have a nice day, isa
Response: Thank you for the hearted 5! I am happy to hear the stitching inspires you... I did it by hand, but it works with a machine too... there are special needles to (machine)sew on paper...a regular one won't be sharp anymore after using in on paper. Good luck! I am sure it will be gorgeous!
Comment: Oh, I love the dandelion. It looks great. Thank you! But how did you cut the dandelion? Do you have a cutting machine? It doesn't look like being handcut...
Also thanks for the wonderful stickers you added - usually I'm not a great fan of stickers, but those are very lovely :)
Response: Oh I am so glad you like it! Yes I have a cutting machine...Just starting to work with it... Thank you for the hearted 5!
Comment: thank you for the ATC, i love birds and didn't know what a ampersand was. that's cool. i love the washi tape and the vintage postcard. the ATC came damaged as it had been folded. please can you make sure your ATC's are on a sturdy background? this ATC can be folded in half. it is beautiful & a great ATC and it is a shame it got damaged =[ just double up the ATC back or put it on some card next time. :) - yes the postcard was folded on the edges but i will be filing it in a vintage folder so i don't mind, don't worry about it :)
Response: I am very sorry to hear the ATC was damaged. I have never had trouble with this cardstock an have been using it for years already... I assume the vintage postcard came damaged also? Of course I don't want this to happen, so will find a way to make sure it won't happen again.
Thank you for rating!

Comment: Hi Chelle~
I really love the postcard you collaged for me. Kitties and pink--two of my favorites! I especially enjoyed the fact that you sewed the card. I think sewn paper looks to stylish and just plain neat. The little touch of lace and washi looks great, too. Thanks for creating something so nice for me.
Response: Oh I am so happy you like it! I always enjoy to make swaps personal... the stitching is so wonderful to do! Thanks for the great rating + â™¥!
Comment: Please don't ever be scared that you get my name in tape swaps. I love each and every sample I get, no matter if it's new to me, or a duplicate. With these small samples, they run out quick, so one can never get bored have too much of the same design tape - LOL. I LOVE what you sent, and by the way, I don't own a single roll of any of the designs - FUN! Long live washi tape :) :)
Response: Haha... I am glad I was able to find some 'new ones' and I totally understand about never having too much tape...:-)
Thanks for the great rating + â™¥!!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard and information about your visit. The Sesame Street exhibition sounds like fun. My boys are teenagers so we miss out on doing some of the fun things when we go to museums. Sometimes we take my eight year old niece, then we can all be children again.
Response: Oh yes it was fun...and feeling like a child again always is special! Thank you for the great rating + â™¥!!
Comment: GORGEOUS envie! You are so talented! What a wonderful artist you are. Thanks for the frog with the crown (you obviously read my profile...) and for saying hello to Vern. I just adore everything about this envie. Thank you SO MUCH!
Response: You are most welcome! I had so much fun making this envelope :-) Thank you for the â™¥ed 5!
Comment: Thanks Chelle! The envelope was ripped open and the Post Office had put it in a clear plastic bag - I think part of the reason it ripped was because it was so big and the postcards were sliding around so much. Maybe use a smaller envelope, one that fits next time? Thanks again; they were all there.
Response: Thanks for the advice! I have never had trouble with it before but will sure be more careful next time! Thanks for rating. I hope you like the cards!
Comment: Oooh such pretty ATCs! I love the technique you used of stitching the stamped image on parchment paper over the leaf. I have some Derwent Colorsoft pencils too and I love them but my favorite are the Derwent Inktense pencils - have you tried them yet? The Fall and Sky ATC is so pretty - and you used Distress Paints? wow - such gorgeous color! Thanks again for such wonderful ATCs!
Response: Derwent Inktsense? Hmmm...don't know them but will definately look them up. I had so much fun creating the ATC's for you... Thank you for your great comment and 5 & â™¥!
Comment: What a WONDERFUL day it was for me when I got home from work and looked in my mailbox. Thank you so much for sharing lots & lots & lots & lots of tape with me; I LOVE it all. Can you believe out of 51 samples, I only have 6 of the designs?! But what I really LOVED too, was your Washi Cat - oh, this made me smile - it was so very cool and now I want to try one, plus other shapes too. THANK YOU, THANK YOU for making my day very lovely!!
Response: Oh wow... Thank you for your lovely comment... I just love washi tape (obviously!) and am so glad you like my selection... Only 6 you already have? Wow...that is amazing... Enjoy the technique I used for the cat...it's so much fun to do! Thank you for the hearted 5!

Comment: Thank you for sending. Unfortunately, due to rain and my terrible postal carrier, you card was ruined overnight in my mailbox and I can't even open the envelope to look at it for 2 reasons: 1. I was out of town and 2. the postal carrier just shoved my mail in the box without closing it. I have put in a formal complaint to the US Postal Service about them. I hate not being able to see my mail, but there's nothing I can do. Have a great day!

The zentangle background one is so simple, but with bang! The sticky notes are gorgeous. Thank you for a great swap. I feel utterly spoilt :)
Response: Oh I am so glad it found you quite quickly! And so happy you liked it all :-) Thanks for the cool rating & heart!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC. It is so much about Holland. I have been there as my mother is Dutch and grew up in Heerlen. She now lives in New Zealand too. Thanks also for the dutch book page - although I can't read it - it will be good for another ATC.
Comment: This was one of my first movies at the theater too. Actually it was at the drive in! Forever a favorite. My husband and i watch it while wrapping Christmas gifts each year. I think i know it by heart. Thank you for sharing the joy.
Comment: Chelle, I LOVE the ATCs!! lol! You said you stepped outside your comfort zone, and I hope you are okay with doing that. You did excellent work. I get a real kick out of looking at the first one! Thanks for the inspiration...I might have to try something like this myself. <3
Response: I am fine with stepping out of my comfort zone! Actually I enjoy trying new things, so this was just a great opportunity to do that. I always prefer to create something special for my partner. I am glad I was able to do that for you too!! Hope to swap with you again!
Comment: AND once again I wish I could give more than 1 heart.... I just love the ATC of the LORAX.... I loved that movie too....and the way you did the flowers....the colors.... everything...... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU......
Response: Yes...I saw the movie because you recommended it...and the flowers intrigued me somehow... Was a nice project to create them :-) So very happy you like the ATC! And thank YOU for the rating and heart!!
Comment: Can I give 100 hearts for this swap! I would like that......How my heart swelled upon opening the cute kinder card with a tree....then finding MOOMINS in front of a tree and ZENTANGLE TREES!!!! AMAZING thank you so much.....what a great day........
Response: Aww...thank you for your sweet words... I love to swap with you and look forward to the next we'll get partnered on!!
Comment: WONDERFUL! One of the nicest ATC's I've received. So sorry for the late-rate. It was so nice, I took it downstairs to show hubby and it never made it back up to the "to be rated" pile. Very creative and I love all things Paris (although I have never been).
Response: I am so happy it didn't get lost in the mail! Thank you for your kind words and rating + heart!!
Comment: Chelle, sorry it has taken me so long to rate, sometimes life gets in the way of my crafting. Thanks so much for the beautiful ATCS you sent me. they are really beautiful. The stitching on both are really a nice touch. Hugs to you. Lois
Response: Hey, no problem! Glad you like them both :-)
Comment: HEY! i am so sorry for not rating!! i did get your first one but completely forgot to rate!
it is soo cool! i love the picture from the first one with all the papers. and i love the bike and the post card pictures in the second! its so lovely! thank you!
Response: No problem! They had the same theme, glad you like it!!
Comment: Thanks for the great PC, Chelle! Your PC came to me with no stamps (must have fallen off) so I don't even know where it's from.. I was wondering if you could tell me what the PC says: "Richt je gezicht naar de zon, dan zie je geen enkele schaduw."
Response: OH NO! I am so glad it found you...without stamps...wow... It says: 'When you look towards the sun, shadow is always behind you'. It's Dutch :-)
Comment: Chelle--this is a beautiful ATC! Thanks for explaining the methods you used to make it. I am DEFINITELY going to try replicating the techniques! Thanks so much! Have a blessed Thanksgiving holiday!
Comment: Thank you for reading my profile! I loved the postcard of the windmills. And the sunset color of the photo is so perfect for Fall, which we are enjoying here in Georgia, USA. Your penmanship is beautiful! And thank you for thinking of me regarding the Postcrossing stamp. No problem - I wish the post offices would keep stamps available forever! LOL!
Comment: Oh my my my I received my Christmas MooMiN package today and I am once again just AMAZED..... The hand made card that held them with Pappa & Mamma Moomin on the front with ice skates! the 3 little MY ATC's with Snork Maiden riding the horse pulling Little My..... the circular one with her tumbling and her as an ornament hanging from a fir tree.....THEY are ALL so different and so beautiful....
Thank YOU THANK you and I would give you 50 more hearts for this......
Response: So very happy you like them... it's always a pleasure to make you something special!!
Comment: Funny enough, I was some time ago in the same situation. I had to pass out one of the first ATCs, because I had not received almost any. Your moomins are really nice. I like the way you add string to one, and the painting is just amazing (though after receiving you 20 pages letter, I did not expect anything less ;)
Response: Glad you like it :-D Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful bright postcard, mailboxes waiting for letters and postcards! I also like the envelope that goes with it. I am still in Postcrossing and I prefer to swap mainly postcards, too. Thanks again.
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart! I look forward to our swap :-)
Comment: Hello! There was a sticker Herstel/Retour on the postcard blocking your name so I had a hard time tracking down who sent this to me :D But I finally did. Thank you very much for the cute penguin card! Love it!
Response: O wow...I am so glad you figured out it was from me ;) Happy to hear you like the card and thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the adorable kitty card and your kind message! Although you might have misread the swap, I honestly appreciate the effort you put into selecting a card just for me and writing a meaningful message. Take care!
Response: So very glad to read this and thank you for the heart!
Comment: Hi Chelle,
The card didn't meet swap criteria. The swap was to send an unused/naked card. But love the thought you put into the postcard. The dog was absolutely adorable!! I'm giving you a 5 anyway because it's just so cute! :)
Response: I'm sorry! Please tell me what I did wrong as I was told 'naked' meant send without an envelope...
Comment: Thank you for your lovely postcard of the Texan cookies. I also visited Texas this year. I stayed with my cousins in March and had a lovely time. I love recipe postcards and cooking. When in USA for a month I bought several recipe magazines and have been using them. I even tried the peanut butter chips when we were in Montana (sadly we do not get them here).
