Comment: Oh Sue! This ATC is simply amazing...the rounded and decoratively punched corners, the gorgeous bit of lace trim at the bottom, and all the sweet embellishments take it to such a wonderful level. And I have to agree: it IS nice to be a girl! Thank you for making such a gorgeous example of red, white, and blue art.
Comment: How I love this ATC! I've always thought the Weimaraner breed is the most elegant of breeds, with their silvery hair and gorgeous blue eyes. Your ATC is not only elegant, but beautifully created with great images and embellishments. A stunner, my dear friend!
Response: These dogs are so beautiful, but the tongue sticking out was irresistible!. Thank you for rating and for the heart, See you around the mailbox! Sue
Comment: Oh Sue, I owe you such an apology. In my mind (which is apparently unreliable) I had rated you for this swap AGES ago. I'm so happy I thought to double-check as I was putting ATCs into my binder. Your creativity astonishes me...this is the cutest idea, using the Crayola box with 8 crayons! I was transported back to 3rd grade...so stinkin' adorable! I just love having you as a swap partner, and knowing that you're a fellow Michigander also makes me happy!
Response: No worries. I am glad the ATC arrived and that you were happy with it . If I had it to do over again, I think I would have done the background differently. Thank you for your thoughtfully worded and kind rating. Always love to be partnered with you. Sue
Comment: Love love love! This card!! What a super idea the little stacking dolls ... I have a couple of sets a friend brought from Russia... I want to thank you for this and this swap idea... I’ve enjoyed it... what’s next??
Response: I am so happy you liked the card. I love those little nesting dolls, although I have never had a set. They are just so sweet. Thank you for your support of the series. I have been thinking about hosting an alphabet series with ATC's and a companion one with BTC's. Hope to see you again at the mailbox. Sue
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful retro-card, I love the way you´ve put it together :)! I´m also thrilled to receive those Graphic45-papers, they´re beautiful and so hard to get here. Estate sales are not very common here, but I sure would love to visit one. We do have kind of open air flea-markets where people sell their own stuff and I love to visit those. Thanks for making my day with this lovely sending!
Response: You are so welcome! I am happy that you liked what I sent. Thank you for rating promptly and for the heart and for your continued support of the series. Sue
Comment: I love your honey comb atc! The pearl paint is beautiful! I may have to go to the craft store and get some! Thank you so much! (I love going to Estate Sales, too!! Never know what treasures you are going to find!)
Response: Nancy, So happy you are pleased. Thank you for rating promptly and for the heart.
Comment: Love this series and I love how you made this really fun card!! Perfect atc and really perfect for me! The familiar parts and pieces of Yahtzee were so cool and that green background couldn’t have been better! Then you add the nicest extras I can’t wait to use! Thanks again
Response: Thank you for your nice comments, Kathryn, I admit, I liked the background, too. So glad you liked what I sent you.Thank you for rating. Sue
Comment: What a darling ATC -- love those antique baby cards -- really adorable. I will use that on a scrapbook page this August when I do a little casino time on the cruise for my 50th bday! Woo-hoo! We loved driving Michigan a few years ago -- what a lovely state! Thanks again!
Response: Johny, so glad you liked the ATC. Those little cards are irresistible, aren't they? Have fun on your cruise, and come back to Michigan, anytime! Sue
Comment: Received your lovely atc (perfect shape - no creases!). The butterflies were a great addition - good opportunity! Thank you so much for the beautiful atc and for hosting this series! And thanks for the steampunk items - inspired me to use a little vintage steampunk in Series 4!
Response: I'm happy it arrived safely! Thank you for rating and for the heart. I am so glad you are supporting this series. See you at the mailbox! Sue
Comment: Ah, Sue...how I love this gorgeous rust and gray ATC! Believe it or not, my children had those balls when they were little...I think they had Mickey Mouse faces, and the hopping was such fun for them (and it tired them out eventually, which was a bonus for me)! I agree that rust and gray are a sophisticated combo, and now I have to come up with another color combination that is appealing! Thank you for the beautiful cards...I have such admiration for people who take their art to the next level.
Response: Bouncy balls, pogo sticks, hula hoops...childhood was so fun and healthy. Thank you for the prompt rating and the friendly words. They mean a lot to me. I am happy you liked the card. Sue
Comment: I've always thought that my best work comes from a cluttered and "disorganized" work surface! I find so many things that I may not have looked for in an organized stash...I am so happy to know I'm not alone in this! Sue, your "one" ATC is exceptional, and I'm jealous of the actual number one you used...I've never seen anything quite like it. Thank you for your wonderful work with our groups, and for hosting such interesting and thought-provoking swaps.
Response: You are right about the magic of a mess. I think that little number is from "Recollections".I have had them for a while and no longer have the packaging. If I see them I will pick some up for us. I don't even know if I have any more. Thank you, as always, for you kind words and for rating promptly. I am happy you liked the swap and it was my pleasure to send it to you. xoxo Sue
Comment: Oh my goodness! The atc you created for me is incredible. I just love all of the layers and the colors. You did a beautiful job. Also thank you for the letter. It was so interesting to read about how damaged goods can be given a new purpose, both the graffiti and the women. It is a wonderful story. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap!
Response: You're welcome, Mandy. I am very happy that you liked what I sent. Thank you for the prompt rating and the kind words. Sue
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful and neatly made ATC :)! And I think you really have read my profile with care as that card makes me think of my job ;)! That pink button is so cute and I´m impressed you decided to waste it on me. And those pretty Graphic45-papers and the pretty note make everything so special, so thank you once again for everything, you made my day!
Response: Wow! That got there quickly. Thank you for the prompt rating and the lovely comments. I would much rather that button be used and enjoyed than sitting in the corner of a drawer . I am happy you liked what I sent you. : ) Sue
Comment: I was certainly lucky to draw you as my partner ...what a great swap! the atc is just wonderful...love the theme, the quote and that great image....beautifully made...the butterfly envelope and those great postage stamps...wow...the atc envie and the handmade note card..just great...those extreas...I feel as though I won the jackpot rak! thank you for this series...im ready to start all over again! I've enjoyed it so much...
Response: Kathryn, Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, and for going the extra mile by posting on my comments. I am very pleased you liked what I sent- I get as much joy from that as I do from receiving a swap. Thanks , also, for your support of the series. Your enthusiasm has convinced me to post another fill a page series. I think I will do numbers next. It has been wonderful to be partnered with you on both ends of a swap and I am sure we will meet again at the mailbox. Sue

Comment: Oh Sue, this is such an adorable little homage to childhood...I just love the "Dick and Jane" illustrations, and you added so many darling embellishments! It's a treasure. I particularly enjoyed your lovely note, and can't thank you enough for the beautiful extras...I had never heard of Gwen Frostic, but you can bet I'll be researching her artwork this evening. I just love having you as a swap partner, whether coming or going.

Comment: Sue, my friend, it was such a pleasure to see your name on this swap envelope...I knew I was in for a treat, and it WAS a treat! our beautiful blue ATC is...well...beautiful! Your attention to detail (the beautifully finished back, complete with wee BLUE stickers) is impeccable, and gives me a standard to aspire to. And yes...I'm still loving life in MI, even though I've had a very difficult year.
Response: Donetta, You are so kind. Truly. I am so glad you liked the ATC. Thank you for joing the swap and I hope things get better for you. See you at the mailbox! Sue
Comment: Hi Sue! Thank you so very much for the lovely May flower/gem Gothic arch. Very pretty! Even the back is very pretty. Love the way you put the twine around the bouquet of lillies. Thank you also for the great extras.
Response: Hi Debbie, I am glad you liked it. The arch was a little different than the shape I usually do. I am really happy that you noticed the twine around the flowers! Thank your for your kind words, the rating and the heart. See you around the mailbox Sue
Comment: Oh thank you for the ATC, you've put a lot of work and love in it! I like the letter with the explanation of your vintage adventure!
Response: Lili, You are very welcome! I am happy you liked it and that it got there so quickly! I was looking for the opportunity to use that little image and am very pleased you liked it. Thank you for rating and for the heart. Happy Swapping. Sue

Response: I know. Dear ol' Mom. I was happy to have some paper with cherries on it as this part of Michigan is known for its abundance of the fruit and the Cherry Festival in the summer is quite a big deal. I am pleased you liked the swap and that it got there so quickly. Thank you for your kind and prompt rating. Sue
Comment: Hi Sue! Thank you for the lovely vintage pocket! I love the way you 'crowned' the couple on the front, the lace you used at the top, and the way you attached the hanger. And I really loved the way you wrapped all the goodies with jute tied around those little keys--so sweet!
Response: You're very welcome Kristy! This was such a fun swap you posted and I really enjoyed doing it. Thank you for rating promptly, for the heart and the kind words. Also, thank you for hosting. Sue

Response: You are very welcome. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words, and for the hearts. Happy Easter. Sue
Comment: I enjoyed reading the background information about the card. The card is well thought out and arranged nicely. It is a real challenge working on this small format but satisfying when done.

Comment: Sue, thank you so much for this beautiful, evocative ATC. I miss the simpler life before computers and iPhones...and I miss seeing children engaged in activities without the vacant stare and stooped shoulders that indicate the use of electronic devices!
Response: Donetta, what a thoughtful and lovely comment. I am glad you like what I sent. Thank you for rating and for the heart. Sue
Comment: Hi Sue - Thanks so much for the wonderful ATC. It came out really cute! As a very busy career-gal I am always a little jealous of the life of a 1950s Housewife, lol. Thanks so much for joining the swap. I hope you had fun. Take Care -Vanne

Thanks so much.

Response: You're very welcome. I am happy you liked it and that you got the card in time for your birthday. For the base, I used regular card stock for each side, and in between, I sandwiched a thin piece of card board. (like baseball card thin). Often, after doing this, I use one of those sanding sponges to smooth out the edges and make it seem more like one thick piece rather than three thin pieces. Thank you for rating and for the heart. Happy swapping! Sue
Comment: I knew that I was going to be in for a special treat when I saw your name on the envelope. Thank you for the unique ATC. It not only brought a smile to my face, but a giggle too! You put a lot of attention to detail in your mailings. I'm always pleased to be on the receiving end!

Comment: Hello Sue,
Thank you for your Purple ATC that you created for me. It is filled with many layers of purple--all being many textures, shapes and sizes. I see the butterflies in many places. Your ATC is very pleasing to the eye. I look forward to adding this ATC to my Color Series.
Response: You're very welcome, Barb. Thank you for rating, the heart and for the kind and articulate comments. :) Sue
Comment: Extra EXTRA special package, from the envelope to the card to the ATC. I actually opened your envelope while waiting for the bus and a woman waiting with me was AMAZED someone made that ATC card!! Me, too!!! It's gorgeous and I'm going to treasure it. It will be a part of my July 4th from now on -- just GORGEOUS!!!!! ('Course now I'm also burning with shame at the ATC I sent. Your card will be my inspiration in future.)

Response: You're very welcome. Don't change what you were going to do. It will be cool to see two variations on an idea. I would not think you were copying, either.

Response: You're welcome! I am so happy you could identify with the ornaments. I bet he is proud of himself and really feels a part of everything and don't you find his "personal touch" lends a certain charm to everything? Thank you for rating and for the heart. My best to you and yours. Sue

Response: Pat, So happy you were pleased. The green embossed paper I picked up at a garage sale... I got a tablet of paper and some other doo-dads and the lady only charged me a dollar for everything. SCORE! Have a great time on vacation. Thank you for the rating, the heart, and most of all, for your friendship. Talk soon. Sue
Comment: Well the P.O. ripped off one of the poor kitty's eyes! I can fix him back up...or does that make him spookier for Halloween if I leave him with one eye? LOL! Thanks for the cool ATC :)
ETA: Sue sent a 2nd ATC!!! Which was not necessary at all since the first one was great even with 1 eye. However, the 2nd one is just as cool as the first one, so I'm excited to have another Halloween ATC in my collection. This time a cute little ghost :) Sue is a completely awesome person to swap with!!
Response: Kelly, I'm so sorry that happened. Actually, I received a ghost with one eye. I left him for now but may operate at a later date. Thank you for the rating and for the heart despite the mishap. That is very kind of you. Happy swapping. Sue
Comment: <3 AHHH! <3 I love everything about this pretty little package! The recycled-magazine envie (excellent subject matter, btw-- I was grinning before it was even open). The fun and varied batch of ATC blanks-- most of them will expand and challenge my boundaries, most excellent. Sweet note, too... and of course, I am a sucker for sparkly! Thank you bunches. =)
Response: You're very welcome. I am so happy you liked the package!!! I really like the idea for this swap. I have done the 6x6 variety pack a couple of times and you are right... having some else's "choices" does expand and challenge our boundaries. Yet another reason to love swap bot. Thank you for the delightful comments, the rating and the heart. Sue
Comment: Thank you the Frankenstein and his bride ATC, it is very cute, just the kind I like ^-^ I also really like the shiny spider sticker you put on the outside of the envelope, I'm gonna have to cut that out and use it on something, too cute!
Response: You are very welcome. I had fun make the ATC's and am really happy you liked the swap. Thank you for rating and for the heart. Sue

Comment: Your package arrived today, you over did with everything you squeezed into that oversized box. I would say that I came out ahead on this swap. The fabric is very colorful and patterns that I need for men, thank you very much. I would say you just taught me how to be a giver. The flamingo pattern, I may try to make a pair of pj bottoms for myself if you don't care. All that fabric was great and lovely, but the card that you made, that is overwhelming, I love the colors and your design is superior to those that are sold in stores! That will be cherished for along, long time. Has been placed in front of my sewing machine so I can admire the beauty of it.
Thank You for the swap, hopefully we will meet again and Shalom aleikhem! (Peace be upon you!)
Response: Lee, I am SO HAPPY you were pleased with your package. And by all means, make some pj bottoms. That sounds like fun. I feel joy to know that you are in the world! Until we meet again. Hugs. Sue (P.S. joann fabrics was having a sale. I really didn't spend over the agreed upon amount. Gotta love a good sale!)

Comment: Hi! I love the Bumble Bee ATC! You did a wonderful job on it! I think if you are a scrapbooker it is tough to change your style sometimes, however having said that, you did a terrific job! Also the card and note are just lovely as well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I'm really happy you liked it. Thanks for the kind words the rating and the heart. Hugs to you. Sue
Comment: Thanks so much for the great ATC's. The little guitar broke in the shipping but I think I can glue it back together.
Response: Oh, I'm so sorry that happened. I don't have another one or I would replace it for you. That is helpful to know though, as I will be mindful of how I package future swaps. Thank you for the rating and the heart despite the mishap. Swap hug. Sue
Comment: Hi Thank you for the beautiful handmade Easter Card and your lovely note. So you are from near Pittsbugh how awesome. I'm closer to Hershey Park which is only about 15 minutes away. Just loved the rabbits on the front of your card. Happy Eastser to you and yours and Happy Swapping. Love, MaryAnn
Response: You're welcome! I am so happy you liked it. I remember the licesne plates in PA used to say "You've got a friend in Pennsylvania" I always felt like that was true. Thank you for the kind words, the rating and the heart. Happiness to you and your loved ones. xoxo Sue

Comment: Thank You for your lovely vintage cards, I could not find any thing like that here. this has been a hard swap but well worth the trouble for the lovely cards we get! Thanks again for the swap.
Response: Yay!!! I was just wondering if you got your atc's yet. I have yours hanging up at work along with the other ones I received in this swap. They look adorable. It was a bit of a hard swap, but I do like the ones with nemerous partners because you get to see so much artistry in a short time. FYI those images were taken from the computer. If you've never tried it, you can type in sonehing like "free printable images" and the category you want and take it from there. Anyway, I am happy yours arrived safely and that you like them. Thank you for the rating and for the heart! Happy swapping!!! Sue
Comment: Such a great private swap!! Two ATCs, when all that was required was one. Beautiful work. Love that you also made and sent a greeting card. Would be willing to swap again, anytime. Thanks.
Response: It was a great swap! I am happy yours arrived safely and that you liked them. Let's swap again for sure. We'll see how things unfold unless you have something in mind right now. Thank you for the rating and the heart. Sue
Comment: Thank you so much for the two stunningly beautiful ATCs - wow! I love them. Thank you also for the outstanding homemade card - it is sitting on display on my shelves.
Response: You are very welcome. I am crazy about yours as well!! Also,I think I forgot to mention that I also like the charning little children images and the wonderful black textured paper you sent. I'm happy you like what i sent you. Thank you for the rating and for the heart! Sue
Comment: YOU are going to laugh when you get my cards... we must have gone to the same place for images LOL... Your cards are beautiful. Its always fun to see how others use similar tools and products. Your copies are much more vivid and so your color choices are different than mine... I just love how wonderful yours turned out! The doily corners are something I will have to remember. I just love your cards and hope mine are as successful as yours. Hearts galore to you my friend!
Response: Betsy, Now I am doubly excited to get your cards!!! One time we went to a big lawn and garden show-- you know new products, ideas, contractors, etc. One exhibit was a challenge for artistis to take the same objects which included a length of garden hose, a watering can, certain plants among other things and make an arrangement with them. They hade one hour. It was fascinating to see how different each one was, yet all beautiful. Thank you so much for hosting this swap and for all your trouble getting the "numbers" of it straight. I joined then dropped because I didn't think I could deliver. Then after I did a bit of research and digging I signed back up again and honestly, it was a lot of fun!!!! Not only did I enjoy making them, but, as usual, I am getting wonderful cards in return. I have them clipped with those tiny clothespins to a ribbon that I hung up at work. Those "little darlings" keep me company.:) I love how each atc teaches me something. I am happy you liked what I made. Thank you for your kind words, the rating and the heart. Swap hug and top o' the mornin' to ya' Sue
Comment: Thank you so much....seriously adorable ATC's and two of them !!! In a swap with so many partners....wow ! and you even wrote a note...most everyone else just stuck an atc in an envelope.....thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. Hope you have a fabulous February.
Response: I am really glad you liked what I sent you. Thank you for the kind words, the rating and the heart. Hugs, Sue
Comment: Sue, I love the nail files you sent...How awesome were they..... Thank you so so much.... Is that an ATC you sent to me? I have never seen one, and it interests me...enough I would love to learn how to make them...they look really simple, and wish I could take some classes...to learn about some of the newest crafts... but time is a problem for me right now... I love it if it is an ATC.... Its awesome...
Thank you so much..... Pat
Response: You are quite welcome. I am really happy you liked the nail files. Yes, that is an ATC and I am especially tickled that you liked it. They are pretty simple, although a person could make them as simple or involved as their time and talent allowed. The one standing requirement is the size. They must measure 2.5"x3.5". Sometimes you can find a swap for ATC for people who have never made them. Maybe just measure out some card stock, or even use a playing card as the back and start by making a couple for yourself. Valentine's Day is coming up and who wouldn't like a home made Valentine?Perhaps give them to a few friends? Then when you have a couple under your belt you might feel comfortable joining a swap for ATC's. Like most all swappers, ATC-ers are very kind, so don't worry about if they are "right". As long as an honest effort is made, they will be fine. If you want to do a private swap to get your feet wet with ATC's pm or e-mail me. I would love to do so! I am happy you liked your package. Thank you for the rating and for the heart. Sue
Comment: beautiful ATC's, Thank you for the extra one. I am just starting with ATC's and this is a great addition.
Response: Valerie, So glad you liked the ATC's. I just started myself this past September. I had reservations about joining a mega swap because of the work involved and I wasn't sure how my work would measure up. I am seeing that so many types of cards are swapped and as long as you put the effort in, well, what's not to love about an ATC? It turns out that I was thrilled to have joined the mega because you see so many interpretations on a theme all at once. I am displaying all my valentine ones at work. I attatched a ribbon to a shelf and clipped the cards with those tiny craft clothes pins. I think it is really cute and such a nice way to see all the cards at once. I actually have put prior ones in a binder with those nine pocket sleeves you can buy. I hope we meet up again on swap bot. Thank you for the rating and for the heart. Have fun swapping!!!! Sue
Comment: Thank you so much. I adore both of the ATCs, especially the vintage one! The lotion was nice. And yes, the new year has started off better, thanks for asking. I hope you have a great new year!
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad things are looking better for you and also that you liked your package. Thanks for the rating and for the heart. Sue :)
Comment: Aww thanks for the kudos about my name - ha. Welcome to Swap-Bot. Love your handwriting. LOVE your hand-made Christmas card. With talent like that, you'll be a welcome addition to S-B.

Comment: Thanks Susan for two lovely skinnies, specially the hand-drawn tulip:-) also thank you for the holiday wishes and birthday wishes and the story about Holland, Michigan (my favorite flower is the Freesia). I wish you all the best for the coming holidays and 2011!
Response: Francis, I am happy the package reached you in time for your birthday. Thank you for the rating and for the heart. I looked at your art work online. Oh my goodness! It is wonderful!! Happy swapping, etc. Sue

Comment: Hi Sue! Oh my gosh! what a darling card! It really touched me that you took the time not only to read my profile but also to make a card that means something special to us both,,,very special Thank you for this little treasure! (I hope we will trade again soon!)
Response: You are very welcome! I was happy it arrived so promptly...sometimes you never know about the mail. I am really pleased that you liked it. Isn't swapping great? You don't even know a person existed and before you know it you've connected with them. THank you for the kind words and the heart and I, too, would love to trade again soon.
Comment: Sue! This was a lovely package! First of all, thank you for the great ATC. You did a very sweet job! I love the combining of textures. Secondly, thank you for taking the time to write and fill the card! I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. And lastly, the owl fabric is adorable! I have a sewing machine, but do I know how to sew? No. This just gave me incentive! Thank you Sue for everything. Hearts Hearts and more Hearts!
