Comment: CatieCat, I love the Black Cat ATCs you created for me! My favorite is the one with the wiggle-eyes, because I love whimsical things! The eyes on the one with the moon are very mysterious. The black glittery washi tape is perfect and the cat on your letter looks like my great nephews' cat, so I'll even be using that image on a postcard for them. Thanks for a great swap and best wishes to you!
Comment: Thank you for including information on your process, it's something I love to know. The ATC is amazing. It's impressive how well the 3D effect works. You're so talent. Thank you for this amazing fairy. *_*

Honey, you 🅴🅰🆁🅽🅴🅳 the privilege of being a "chicken mom" to posh, pampered peeps! XOXO
Response: Thank you for the kind words. I usually try to check my partner's profile, so I can send relevant items. As for the chickens, hubby's soon to find a couple of extra mouths to feed. I've got my eye on a black silkie. And there's a tan one with a "polish" top knot. lol.
Comment: You so nailed the ATC and caught exactly what delights me, lol. Roscoe and my cats. Thank you so very much for an ATC that brought a smile to my face and joy to my heart. God Bless and have a safe and wonderful weekend........=)
Comment: Thank you, Cathy! The altered CD wall hanger is beautiful and with your excellent mailing materials it arrived in perfect condition. =) Seriously! Thank you for the extras as well ~ very sweet of you. xo
Comment: I think you nailed the violet! Think they are in the same family as pansies, so kinda confusing! Love the lace and music background! Thank you! And love the piece of lace from your aunt's wedding dress!! I will be happy to re purpose it!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the large handmade envelopes, great job on doing them yourself! I used to make them like that but never could get them right so I do use a punch board for mine, but I still mess up sometimes with that. I have found out that it depends on what size I use because the score lines don't match up right on certain sizes, at least not for me. Thanks for the extras too!
Comment: No worries. I didn’t make my flip book from envelopes either. It never said to make it from envelopes. But it did say to put a note in an envelope. Guess I read it wrong too. Hope mine is accepted. I spent a long time on it, Thank you for the one you made for me💖
Comment: Thank you for the shaker ATCoin. It has such a lovely scene and the snow is so sparkly, I love it! It was very thoughtful of you to include the extras, they're all very appreciated. I hope we can swap again sometime!
Comment: Thank you for the heartfelt swap! I really needed it. As soon as I opened the card to read your note the shamrock stickers made my soul shine with glee because they remind me of my Grandma Cook! You had no way of knowing she died New Years Day, but you read my profile and sent just the perfect pick-me-up! Thank you 😊 We too enjoyed all the episodes of the Mandalorian. I have yet to see the rise of Skywalker though. We’ll probably wait until it leaves the theaters and is available on Disney-plus!
Take care my “sister-Floridian” 🥰
Response: The leaving of a loved one is much like someone stepping into another room. You don't see them, but you know they're near. May the sweet memories comfort you in times of sadness. Be blessed wtih the knowledge that your loved ones are with you always.
Comment: I loved the card ! My second character was a night elf hunter 😊 but I’m a horde girl. This inspired me to pick the game up again thank you so much the card was beautiful
Response: I'm on the Excalibur free site, playing "The Burning Crusades". I have 3 avatars: night elf druid, night elf hunter & night elf mage. Haven't been there long, so I'm still relatively low level. Years ago I was lvl 35. I love it. Hope to see you around.
Comment: You are awesome! This turkey collage pc is so cute. You are good at making these. I feel so bad that mine turned out as a dud for you. Where did you find all the turkey pics? At least now I know how it’s supposed to look. Thank you!
Comment: OMG Cathy!! I LOVE the adorable Halloween Christmas ornaments that you sent me! They are AMAZING!! I love all of the lenticular stickers! Where did you get them?!? Thank you for an amazing swap! :D
Response: Thank you. The stickers came from Target, last year. Not sure if they have them this year. Hope you can find them. Have a wonderful day.
Comment: Cathy your page is fantastic! I wish I were there to give you a hug! I tried the diy route myself years ago and decided it was worth the investment. So frustrating! But what you created is in no way inferior- the colors and textures are amazing and the extra doodles makes it all *pop*. So hold your head up high, here’s a cyber hug 🤗 and no worries! ❤️❤️
Comment: You did it! The process is the fun part but can be frustrating too. Sounds like you learned a lot. And I really love the visual texture and colors you got. Super cool. Thanks for the generous extras too :-)
Comment: I love your take on the wall decor! This little owl is the cutest! Thank you so much, and yes I had a blast creating mind as well this was such a fun swap. Thank you for the extras, always love some spooky stickers!
Comment: Really like the uneven edging of the book page and the sooty dusting of the edges... great effect... love the stamp and the green of the gems ... nice atc all around... the extras were all very nice and will be used thank you!
Comment: Cathy, thank you for my happy mail! :) Thanks for joining my swap and trying the paperclip beads with me. Yours turned out awesome! I loved the steampunk theme - so cute! Enjoy your time off the grid - hope you are doing something fun! See ya when you get back! :)
Response: Sorry about the absence of RAKs. I was in such a hurry to get the project ready for the post office, that I forgot all about the extras (they're still laying on my desk). I'll catch you next time. :)
Comment: Cathy what a fun and creative swap you made for me - I loved the wallet and all the fun extras you included! 😍 Thanks for being a great addition to our group and for being a wonderful partner! 😃
Comment: Cathy the pear was gorgeous with this faux leather technique and so creative to add color to it as well - I didn't even think of that! How did you put the color highlights on the pear? No worries about mounting it - I am sure I can find a project to use it on. Thank you for my happy mail! 😃
Comment: Hi Cat - Thanks so much for the wonderful Resin charms and all the extra goodies. They came out great!! I'm glad I inspired you to use your Resin, I have been having fun trying new ideas. I am so happy that you joined the swap and always excited to have you as my partner. Take Care -Vanne
Comment: Funny how things happen.... I dont read much, my daughter gave me a mystery book from a book club..she saved the presents for me to open, after she read the book. You gave me a bookmark with a quote on it... now i can use the book mark with this new book. Thank you ... it does look neat and love the quote.
Comment: Thanks for the ATC. As a child I often wished for wings so I could travel places.
I appreciate all the bits and pieces of ribbons. That kind of job you had is a dangerous one. You are in danger of no paycheck.lol
I worked as a florist for years and saved every bit and peice of stray ribbons, specially from weddings.
Comment: Thank you for the feathers and dragonfly - some of my favorites! :) I agree this challenge was fussy, like I said in my note to you. It was difficult to keep the pop bottles flat to stamp and die cut, in fact, I had to cut around them by hand too. The unicorn I sent you I did on flat packaging so that I could see the difference, and it was definitely easier using flat packaging, but I guess in a pickle we know that we can use a plastic pop bottle if we have too! :) lol
Comment: Hi Cat - I can't believe we both chose the same card for our Tarot themed ATC!! I love your design; she is so happy to see the sun. That is how I will feel once the rain finally stops and the sun starts shining again. Thanks so much for joining the swap. Take Care -Vanne
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! The flowers are very pretty! Now I have flower die cut envy! LOL! I especially love the little dragonflies on the card! Thank you as well for all the extras! The most stickers are gorgeous!
Comment: Cathy, thank you for the card you made and all those fun extras you sent me. I will try to use them up, but it will be hard to part with all those fun goodies - lol! It was definitely happy mail! :)
Response: My pleasure. And i look forward to your newest swap: making diecuts from pop cans (get the bandaids ready, LOL). Should be fun.
Comment: HI Cathy, I love the wonderful ATC you made for me. Thanks so much!! Thanks for the warm thoughts , much appreciated. Expecting 4 inches of snow later today. It has been a cold winter, so ready for spring!! So happy to meet you here at swapbot. Thanks also for all the lovely extras!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the ID cards; they are great! : ) I loved receiving the notecard and the note you wrote me. I look forward to swapping with you again. The sticker/tape stuff you sent is awesome! I have never seen it before but I really like it! : D
Comment: Cathy, another great swap from you. I love this Halloween tag...so cute! Love the background and the great diecut owl, pumpkin and witch. Thank you for this awesome tag and the extras which I will use in my Halloween projects.
Comment: 7/24/2018-Ty ever so much for the beautiful water theme handmade envies and for joining this swap. I love your swap card...i wish everyone would include one in their swaps, the cards make everything much easier to identify. Happy swapping.
Comment: 07/10/2018-OMG!!! Where ever did you find that kind of calendar. I love the envies you put together. I think I am going to frame them and put them up as decos in my craft room or my living room. I LOVE THEM. Thank you. Happy swapping.
Response: Thank you for the kind words. I just happened on that calendar at an animal thrift shop that apparently has new calendars donated to them. I'll keep you in mind if I run across any more of them. Have a great day. : )
Comment: Love the card and the way the kitty is staring up at the butterfly, very creative! Reminds me of a story: we had a black & white tuxedo who used to come in from the backyard with black smudges on his cheeks and we couldn't figure out where the smudges were coming from. Until the day he came in with a big Monarch butterfly in his mouth and the wings were "flapping" against his cheeks. We had our own butterfly serial killer! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the 2 pendants! Don’t feel bad about what you made; we’re all beginners sometime and plus that dragon one is especially cool. I haven’t used air dry clay before, and I’m curious what happens when you incorporate air dry with polymer in a design...I may experiment!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome star wars postcards. I love them. I love all the movies, hard to pick a favorite. I love Darth Vader the best. Thanks again for all the post cards. I will enjoy looking at them and will keep them in my collection.
Comment: Hi Cathy - Thanks so much for making me the awesome "Animal" PC. He is really one of my favorite Muppets. Wasn't it a great show? I have so many happy memories. So happy that you joined the swap. I'm glad that you had fun. Take Care -Vanne
Thanks for reading my profile. I used to live in Pensacola, Florida, but I'm a Colorado girl, so the humidity was overwhelming.
I just got a new fairy silhouette die. I can't wait to use it.
I hope you had a great Easter.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty butterflies. Haven't seen any butterflies here yet. Saw my first daffodils on the way home from the store the other day. Just need it to warm up and stay. 60s yesterday 40s today.
Comment: What fun and funky envelopes! The star one is so bright and inviting...they all are! These will be such great treats to find in your mail box...happy mail indeed! I appreciate the extra paper to use, too! Thank you! ðŸ‘ðŸ»
Comment: Thank you co much for this package. I love these postcards, it definitely fits my taste! Especially one with forest! <3 And also thank you for stickers and brush pens I will use it well :) I hope that you have a wonderful day!
