Comment: Thank you for the very cheery note, The card you sent is so cute! I plan to include it in the next magpie journal I make. I would never laugh about the age of your UFO's. I just last week gave away fabric I had bought to make a ladybug themed quilt for my 2 year old niece. She'll be 2 this year! Thank you also for the Numi mint tea. It's one of my favorites since it tastes wonderful hot or cold.
Comment: Thanks for the delicious pineapple. I agree, a tropical drink would be good. Our heat this week is beastly (in the upper 90s today)! My tomatoes need it though. Have yourself a lovely summer. <3
Comment: Thanks so much, MA, and your husband for the beautiful PC of the Dartmoor National Park! I would love to do that walk. Thanks too for the great postage.... After reading your comments on the PC I laughed when I saw the dog stamp... said to myself I wonder if that's the Hound of the Baskervilles! LOL!
Response: Oh..I hadn't thought of that..I suspect that pooch on the stamp was not the hound :-)
Thankyou for the prompt rating and the heart.
Comment: I was so glad to see you had joined the swap - and even more so to be your partner! I love the postcard and stamps!! Animals are definitely my favorite theme! I agree about respecting wildlife more too!! Have a great day and hope to see you in another swap! : )
Response: I was pleased when I was given you as a partner - thanks for rating so promptly, and for the heart :-)
Comment: What a beautiful card! I just love the robin :)
Response: I am glad you liked him...he's still very seasonal, as we are continuing to have snow here, and the local robin is boldly looking for food. Thankyou for taking the trouble to rate so promptly, and for the heart.
Comment: Hi. I like the postcard and i agree with ur grandmother ;-). Dont stop to be kind to people because there are a lot of people who will be kind to you O:-). Pm me if u feel free. I always there to be kind to u!
Response: Thankyou for your rating and kind words.
Comment: Thank you very much for the graet card with VW transporters! It made my day a very happy mail day!
I love the cards from "Driftwood Art". Unforunuatly they are not for sale in the Netherlands :(
Comment: Loved my "postcard." I did not used to like lavender, but really do now. I remember when I was young I had a little hanging bamboo container and my aunt would fill it with dried lavender. It hung in my closet--wish I still had it! Loved the bark planters. I do not know much about heather. Anyway...lovely card..thank you!
Comment: Thank you! Your quote is very inspirational and your postcard is just my style. I might need to hang it on my wall, or better yet hunt down a replica of that weirdo bird container on the front, awesome (:
Comment: Thank you for the swap! I like the postcards you have chosen! I love the proverb on one of the cards: "Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children."
Comment: thank you for the very pretty sparkly card!
Response: Ooh..I am glad it arrived so quickly. Have a great Earth Day, and thanky for rating me promptly and for the heart. It was the first card I ever put glitter on, so I was a little afraid of messing it up...I think I may use more next time :-)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard! It really is gorgeous, like you said, the close up pictures of metal, its gorgeous! And thanks so much for writing the birthday wishes for David! :) Thanks very much!!
Response: I am so glad it arrived safely, and that you liked the picture I picked out for you. Hope David has a great day on his birthday !
Comment: What an awesome package! I LOVE the envelopes you made, they are so beautiful and very well made. The matching tags are an amazing touch. You are an excellent swapper, clearly you put a lot of thought into your creations and you did a super job of packaging. I was so excited to get your air mail package today, thank you so much!
Response: I am so pleased you liked them...they were my first batch of handmade envies, so I was a bit apprehensive. Thanks for rating so promptly, and for the heart !
Response: I am glad you liked the mapcard. I try to find them when I visit anywhere, and save for swaps. The weather was lovely and I had been walking along the beach on the day I bought that card. Thanks for rating so promptly and for the heart :-)
Comment: LOVE LOVE LOVE the Buttons!! Very creative how you affixed them to the card and how you explained each one. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
Response: I am so pleased you liked them and that they didn't get squashed by the machinery. I loved choosing them...my husband came into town and had to go for a very long walk whilst I was looking for them, because I took ages. It was great fun. Thanks for the prompt rating, and for the heart.
Comment: Thanks for your card! I love lychees:) I prefer canned lychees, because fresh lychees sold in Moscow 1) are expensive 2) taste like rubber. Many exotic fruits sold here are picked unripe to survive the transportation, and they don't have that taste that only sun can give.
Response: Thanks for the prompt rating and the heart..I am impressed with how fast our respective postal services got the card to you. I also hate fruit that is picked prematurely and then never ripens properly
Comment: Thank you for the lovely cheerful postcard :-) I have to admit I have started on the Cadbury's Creme eggs already... but the rest of the Easter choccies are hidden safely away!!!
Response: Only a slightly bad girl then. I even refused a hot cross bun at my quilt group on Saturday, although I was very hungry...because I look forward to them more if I wait until Good Friday. Thankyou very much for hosting this swap and for your prompt rating and the heart.
Comment: I love the card, thank you so much :-) I can't roller skate either, but I'd love a pair of those silver bad-boys!!!
Response: thanks for the prompt rating and the heart. I think I would need even more accessories if I wore those rollers...kneepads/elbow pads/inflatable space suit to cushion the falls...it would be an interesting sight.
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard! I would love to visit 'Shakespeare County' one day! And thank you so much for sending the extra of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. That one did not arrive with this postcard, but I will let you know when it does! Thanks again!
Response: Thanks for rating so promptly, and for setting up the swap. Hope the extra card will arrive soon..I posted it at the same time.
Comment: Marna, thank you for the beautiful flower PC, I love it - it's so colourful!! The floods and cyclones did not hit anywhere near Melbourne, so I am dry, safe and sound - thank you for your concern though! Thank you for your lovey compliments on my photography in my etsy shop - I really appreciate it =D
Response: Glad you are Ok, and glad the postcard arrived safely. Thanks for rating me so promptly and for the heart
Comment: I too am excited for a garden and flowers. We are currently buying a home thas has amazing space for both! Hopefully we arent too late to plant by the time we get settled in. Thanks for the PC!
Response: thanks for the prompt rating. Glad the card arrived safely...good luck with the move. If there is already a garden, it will be very exciting seeing what comes up in the first year, even if you don't move in soon enough to plant.
Comment: I love love love love this postcard. Hot pink is one of my favs. Thanks so much. It is HOT! Could you please send me your full name and address so that I may send you a postcard back. I like to do this for my swap partners. Thanks....Robin
Response: thanks for rating so quickly..I was hoping you would like it. I will pm you, although it is not necessary to send a card back
Comment: Hi Maria,
Thank you for the Coventry card- it looks like a nice place. I can't beleive you have been to Gourock haha! I certianly was never expecting to get a postcard telling me that! Best wishes,
Response: Thanks for the quick rating and the heart..We ate our fish and chips on the top of a grassy bit that has a wooden seat and overlooks the sea..there were some large black birds (rooks?) watching us the whole time. You may know the spot?
Comment: Got your postcard ... we have this cereal too and although it looks good (and healthy) I've never tried it. Love that you did some sewing on the box - is it machine sewn? The stitches are so neat and can hardly feel where they are underneath! No machine here but I want to figure out how to sew on PC's!
Response: glad you liked the card..the sewing was done by machine. I thought of doing it by hand but thought it would be a tough job to get the needle through the card. Would probably work on standart postcard weight card though. Appreciate the heart :-)
Comment: I got the postcard today! So fast! It is great and I totally love the stamp! I am a classic Pooh fan so both the front of the PC and the stamp are awesome! Thanks for doing this - I am so happy! And I might add that I am a pretty big fan of pubs,too...!!
Response: Glad you enjoyed the card and stamp combo..and so pleased it got there undamaged. Thanks for swapping and for the heart
Comment: They both arrived today and they are beautiful, thank you so much! I was having a rotten afternoon too, I was grumbling as my mailbox was full of junkmail, but then your cards were at the bottom and suddenly I didn't feel so crappy anymore :)
Response: glad you likes them..thankyou so much for swapping and for rating so promptly and for the heart
Comment: The USA on the card worked great! I already have it. The grandkids are going to love this card. I did take the summer off. I did finally update my profile. I took care of my Mom for so long I just needed some selfish me time but I missed swap bot so I had to come back. :)
Comment: J'adore la carte postale! Bread, and lots of it! I haven't been in French class since '03 and fear my skills are rather lacking. But I translated your note just fine, so I guess I'm not as horrible as I thought! Merci beaucoup! <3
Response: My French is from school also..so I am glad it was understandable at least :-)
Glad you like the card. Merci pour le coeur !
Comment: thank you for the unusual Halloween pc. I didn't realize the people were dressed up in costumes at first, but then I looked at the back, and saw it was for Halloween. then I found the crows. very cool.
Response: Exactly the same with me...it took a while to spot the crows etc. Glad you liked the card. Appreciate the heart and your prompt rating
Comment: I love how fast the mail is between our countries! Thank you very much for the card, it's a great addition to my collection and I love looking at the picture again and again to discover all of the cute little details.
Response: I wish I was at that tea-party..I didn't know I liked elves until I saw this card..now I do :-)
Thanks for rating me so quickly...I am so pleased that you are pleased.
Comment: Thank you very much. Finally, the resend reached me. The hot chocolates look yummy. I will enjoy it ^^ Have a nice day! : )
Response: Thankyou for the kind rating. I am sorry you had to have a resend. I am still hoping the original envie I sent will arrive so you can enjoy that also. But maybe the post office machinery somewhere has a taste for hot chocolate and has eaten it :-(
Comment: thanks so much for the articles! i love roses, and can't wait to try making some atcs with this stamp. i also have some shrink plastic i've been wanting to use and stamping little roses on it seems perfect!
Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed what I chose for you. Thanks for rating so promptly and for the heart.
Comment: I really appreciate the way you attached the artifix and that you asked me about it. What a wonderful journal! Makes me wish I had a green thumb. Lovely items and we have several things in common. A wonderful mail day for me!
Response: Wow..it arrived so quickly...I was a bit anxious in case it got lost in the mail. I would have done photos too except my scanner/printer is broken. I loved compiling it for you. Thanks for the great rating and for letting me know so quickly that it arrived
Comment: Yay! It finally arrived! I'm glad I'm never in a hurry to rate, because it's very common for packages to take five, six, even seven weeks to get to me here. But it was worth the wait... :) Thank you for the generous gypsy's trove of ribbons, and the wonderful paper selection. And I especially appreciated the ATC blanks, which will definitely inspire me to begin creating again... Hugs - Judith
Response: I'm so glad you are pleased with what I sent. Thanks for rating so promptly too :-)

Comment: Wow - I love the ATC. Beautiful colours and shapes, and it makes me curious about the other 2 in the series.
The card that you send me with it is pretty special as well (hence the heart), those rocks are truly awe inspiring, wish we had some of those in the Netherlands :)
Response: I am so pleased the card arrived safely and that you liked it. The other two in the series were similar, but not identical ( I kept one for myself :-) )

Response: It was a pleasure choosing what to send you.
Comment: Received my Shabby Chic Dotee today. Wow, you did a really nice job. I love the sweet expression that you embroidered on her face, the hair and the muted colours you used. Very well put together - one of the nicest Dotees I have received. Thank you very much.
Response: Thankyou so much, I am so pleased you liked here, as she was one of the first I have every made.
