Comment: Jade-WOW! I came home from vacation and had this wonderfully huge package waiting for me. Thank you for everything! I love it all. I can not wait to use the items. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
Comment: Jade- I was thrilled to get your clusters today! I love the purple collaged tag, your use of doilies and envelope with pull out stickers- way cool! The way you used your materials to make unique clusters like the one with the bag and tag. All are little pieces of art. Thank you! and heart heart heart heart to you. Let me know when your ready for another swap.
Comment: Wow, thanks for all the super-cool stuff!! The first thing I pulled out was the $50 memo paper - a great start to a great package! My husband was with me when I opened the package but I fortunately grabbed the Trivial Pursuit card away just in time - thanks for that! Aruba looks beautiful, glad you had a good trip!
Response: I’m so glad you liked it. Yes, husbands can be very sneaky....I’m glad you were able to save the Trival Pursuit card! Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for all the goodies....... I loved how different everything was! The paper samples so unique too. I really liked the idea of the Trivia card the most.
Response: Iâ€™m glad you liked your package! I had so much fun gathering items to go in your envelope. Cards from games are so much fun to play with. Thanks for the nice comment and the heart. Happy swapping!
Comment: This was a very lovely package, thank you so much! I especially loved the stationary with the "Footprints" story on it. That's always been one of my favorites!
Your note and items were very thoughtful, thinking of my poetry and other writing, so I gave you a heart as well. :)
Response: Iâ€™m so glad you liked your package. I enjoyed assembling the items for you. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thanks Kim for the profile comment. You are a lucky lady to have had a class by Tim Holtz, I wish he would have one close to NC... I love J.D.Robb, which you probably know is Nora Roberts. It is just a different story line than her norm. It is about a NY Police officer(who is one tough lady)set in the future. I really enjoy them, if you get a chance,start from the beginning its kind of picks up where the other stopped. Thanks again, and hope to swap again soon. Connie
Comment: As usual, your ATCs blew my mind. I love just how original they were and I am inspired by the techniques you used. I can't wait to try the tile one on my own. Thanks to for the Perfect Pearls - I've been curious about them and now I can try them out. I'm so glad we did this swap and I hope we do more like to soon. Hugs!
Response: Thanks so much. I had so much fun doing this swap!!!! Now its your turn!!!! :-)
Comment: First - I LOVE the bat!!! I love Halloween bats! Your ATC is so cute. Thank you. Also, thank you for the amazing extra! I cracked up when I saw the message below the image. I'm totally going to be using it. A million hearts!
Comment: I love Frosty!! Thank you for such a happy winter card! And thanks for the puzzle pieces too (off to figure out what to make with them...) blessings, Gypsy
Response: Im so glad you like Frosty. Im currently making a birthday card with my puzzle pieces. I have put gesso on them then stamp them with Staz on ink any stamp you want. They make neat embellishments. Happy swapping.
Comment: Great ATC. . . and great word!!! Of course I had no idea what it meant so am glad you told me : ) I, too, love trees, branches and leaves so this was perfect for me - it's beautiful and I learned something!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I had so much fun making it. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Kim a beautiful ATC,love all the details! Thanks for the extra's too! I can't imagine seeing TH in person,PLUS participating in a class he taught! Lucky you!! I went to a class taught by a gal who went to Ranger U,and that was inspiring to me.Thanks again!
Comment: I know what you mean by transfers being difficult. The most effective method I have found is using tape - clear packaging tape. I love your ATC - the colors and design are still interesting even if the image isn't clear - and transfers aren't supposed to be clear. Thanks for the awesome extras. That green is one of my favorite colors.
Comment: I love this ATC! So glad you are using the paste. It's really cool stuff. I liked your application of the flock too. I have some of that and I should use it more.
I sent my ATC off to you today. I hope you like it.
Response: Im so glad you liked the ATC. I had fun making it. I cant wait to get yours. Im still thinking about our next swap.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely collage ATC. I haven't tried collage yet -- or at least never finished one -- my cards always look funky. Yours is great! Love the color combo, the specialty paper with black stamp is elegant, and the punched paper gives a cool finishing touch. Great swap!
Response: You definately should try a collage. It was so much fun tearing all those papers. It was relaxing too. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: I love this ATC! The owl cracks me up - so cute! The background with the leafing pen is awesome - i know what you mean by transparent paint and metallic being a perfect combo. Thanks for the chop sticks too! :-)
Comment: I love this ATC - your color combinations are beautiful - but I mostly love the way you combined the different kinds of paper towels so the textures would play an important part. Your extras spoil me!!!
Comment: Great use of a sticker which truly is the card's focal point! The shimmer of the metallic inks is enviable. And the extras were beautifully edited to create their own little still life - I'm so inspired by their beauty that I may simply keep them together like that to create a 'found ATC' (and give you due credit....) :)
Response: When I found that sticker set I knew I had to use it with this swap. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: WOW..What a great atc,,I love it and you did a wonderful job..The heart is amazing with all the different papers,,I am so happy that I get to add this one to my collection....I appreciate the great extra goodies also,Thank you with a heart,
Response: Im so glad you liked the ATC. It was fun making it. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the extra & for being so generous - I love the papers you sent!
Response: I didnt realize how tough it would be to find boy paper in my stash. I have 2 nieces so when I started searching..... everything was PINK!! Im glad you liked them. Thanks for the rating and the heart. :-)
Comment: Yay you got me again and sent more nice stuff. I really like this Butterfly card. it is very pretty.The background itself is gorgeous and the butterflies add the right touch. Nicely done
Response: How unusual that I was able to send to you twice. I had just bought watercolor paint and I played all day with them to create a variety of backgrounds. I love to play with paint. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Hello Kim,
Thank you for the ATC you sent me for the "1 for All #4" Swap. Your project arrived on Jan.11th in good condition. The soap operal you featured in your ATC is my favorite. I love how you took the pear and turned it into a hourglass. I am excited to add your ATC to my ever-growing and ever-changing ATC Collection. I will put it in my more specific "1 for All" ATC Series. I hope we get further opportunities to swap in 2010. Happy Swappiing in 2010.
P.S. Thank you for the variety of extras you sent along with my new ATC. Please know that the extras will be used in my future creative endeavors.
Response: Thanks so much for the comment. Im so glad you liked the ATC. Thanks for the rating and the heart.

Comment: I LOVE the atc blanks you sent. I love that you backed them and they are so sturdy. I love that you painted some of them too. The collaged ones are just wonderful. You really got creative for me! Thank you!
Comment: Very cool card!!! I love that quote too. How did you make the word Twilight look drippy? Very cool effect :)
Response: Thanks so much for saying so. I created the drippy letters effect by stamping the letters with Martha Stewarts Halloween Acrylic set with and Opaque purple ink. Then I applied a glaze to make the letters shine.
