Comment: Thank you! We have been getting a lot of rain here also. It has been so much there has been dangerous flooding. Hoping the rain will hold off for a little while & save some for next month....lol
Response: Well it's still raining here & looking to keep up for the next week. Happy to hear that the card arrived. Thanks for the rating. :)
Comment: I know Florida is a warm place but it's hard to imagine summer weather while over here we're having some snow again :)
Thanks for sending me another map, I was not aware there would be so many different ones from the same state! (R: 24-02-18)
Response: You are welcome! Happy that it was a new design for you. Some states can have quite the variety. I think I have around 14 different ones just for Florida! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you for this beautiful coin! I hope I won't miss if you host a similar swap! Have a wonderful Christmas :)
Response: You are very welcome! I am happy that you like the coin so much. :) I will certainly be setting up another swap soon for pressed coins. :) Thanks for joining my swap and for the rating & heart! :)
Comment: Lovely postcard! It must have been so amazing to have been in the Coliseum and especially at an event like Homecoming! And I remember it from the movie "Cocoon" it's one of my favorite ones! Thank you for hosting this swap and the card!
Response: You are very welcome. :D Happy that you like the card & have seen the movie to get the chance to see what it looks like inside. Thank you for joining my swap & for the rating & heart! :D
Comment: Thank you for the FL card. It was not a new one for me but that does not matter. I love being able to read the notes that have been written on them. Transportation to the stars reminds me of our tour of Cape Canaveral when we were traveling home after a cruise that my daughter and a friend of ours took in Sept 2012.
Response: Well, I'm happy that you enjoyed the message. I enjoy getting the chance to visit the Kennedy Space Center & be nose to nose with Atlantis. Thanks for the rating & the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you very much for the lovely mermaid atc. I just love hand drawn atc's so much, so I really appreciate you taking the time and effort in making this atc <3 I especially like her fin ear :P
Response: You are very welcome, I am happy to hear it reached you and that you love it so much. I was trying to do a monochromatic theme with the shades of green. I do like how she turned out too. :) You are welcome again, and thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Sara, with so many map postcards of Florida, I didn't think there would be another. I was wrong, the one you sent me was new to my collection. Thank you. I am with you, I do not like the iguanas. They are creepy looking. Wish they would go back where they came from, just like the North Carolina skinks. Yes, skinks, not skunks. Shirley
Response: I am happy it was a new one for your collection. Thanks for the rating. :)
Comment: My apologies for the late rating; a bunch of mail got piled up on the end table and this was a VERY pleasant surprise among the bills & junk mail. I know West Palm fairly well. I lived in Vero Beach for 5 1/2 years between 2003 & 2008. Winters there weren't too bad, but I'm not a fan of hurricanes. Better for me: the desert. Happy swapping.
Response: I am happy to hear that it reached you and that you liked it. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Sara, I am so sorry not to have rated this when it first came in. I just found it with cards to put in an album. You sent a lovely Map Card of Florida - which I don't have. Would love to visit one day - looks like there's lots to do. Many thanks, Chris crispycritter
Response: Wow! Well better late than never ! ;) I had to look in my notebook I have to keep track of my swaps to find this one.
You are very welcome and I am happy that it reached you and that it was a new one for you! :)
Thanks for the rating and the heart! :D
Comment: Loved your spoonbill drawing. I'm a bird watcher and keep a life list...I have never seen a spoonbill, did see a woodstork last trip to Florida. Please enjoy the sun and surf for me. Happy New year.
Response: I am happy that you like your card so much. They are very pretty birds to see in person. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you for the great card! I make my first trip to Florida next month, I can't wait winter has been much to long!
I am hoping to get some Cuban food in Miami than hope on ship. So need vacation!
Response: You're welcome for the card, and I hope you have fun on your trip! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you for my pretty FL card. It came yesterday. I used to go to marathon in winter. Iwas last week visiting my stepson in Tampa area. I have friends in West Palm Beach. I really prefer the east side to the west side of FL. Enjoy your good weather. here it is chilly. Jean Maples
Response: You're welcome. Happy that you liked the card. Thanks for the rating! :)
Comment: Thank you for the Florida map card with Mickey and Minnie on it.. def. a plus with me =o) I do have another Florida map card but thankfully not this one.. =o) We can always do a private swap if you wanted a card from Hawaii.. however I am a NON touristy kinda girl.. as far as getting cards go =o)
Response: Happy that this was a new map card for your collection! Go ahead and message me whenever you want to do a private swap. I do have quite a few different Florida map cards. :) Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Hello Sara- Thank you so much for the great map card. As you know, I LOVE map cards, and I would give you many hearts if I could. This vintage one is perfect for my collection!! Best wishes, Debbie
Response: Awesome! Happy to hear that the card arrived and that you love it so much. Always happy to add to a collection. Thanks for the rating and heart!!
Comment: Thanks for the Yeti card. I love it! Very clever. I especially like the guy with the binoculars! :D So cool that the Yeti can change from white to brown in summer. Thanks again!~
Response: Great! I'm very happy you love your Yeti card. :) I had fun drawing it. I figured that it would have adaptations that would be silmilar to other animals in similar areas, all the better to evade detection. :) Again, happy you love it, thanks for the great comment, and the rating and heart! :)
Comment: HI Sara, thank you so very much for the pressed penny for a Zoo near you. I lived in Orlando for 23 years, and all we had was the Central Florida Zoo over in Sanford..It is not a great zoo!! Anyway, since I visited my son in July, we went over there for a day, and that is when I decided that I would like to start collecting zoo animal postcards..and also played on the Pressed Penny machine. I like the penny very much. anita
Response: Well, Lowry Park Zoo is a very nice zoo located in Tampa, FL. I used to live near there and loved visiting there. I now work at a zoo over here on the other coast and I think it's a pretty swell zoo as well. If you want, we could do a private swap....We have a penny press machine with 3 penny choices, let me know! :) Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Hello Sara- Thank you for the lovely map card of Florida. I don't have this one yet!
Response: Good! I'm happy this is a new one for you. I have gotten you a couple times and I have to try and remember.....did i send her this one already?..... :) thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Gorgeous set of cards, I'm glad these got here but kind of sad the others didn't... The postal monster thought they were tasty and you were kind enough to replace them even though they're hand drawn. Thank you so much and I love them tons!
Response: Both sets were hand drawn, and who knows the postal monster may give them back..... Anyways, I'm very happy that this set made it to you, and that you love them so much. :) You are very welcome, thanks for the comment, rating, and heart! :)

Response: Thank you very much for such a great comment. I worked hard on both and I'm happy that my partners loved them. And wow, you're putting it in a special book of yours? Awesome. So thanks again for the comment and for the rating and heart! :)
Comment: Nice layout. Did you do the image and have to shrink it to fit an ATC? It reminds me of a style of illustration that I love that was very popular in children's book around 50 years ago. Thank you for the cool card also.
Response: Thanks for the great comment. While I would love to take credit for making the actual image, I didn't make it. It was a brilliant image that I had found and shrunk down. I loved the colors in it and liked how it all turned out. So, you are very welcome and thanks for the great comment, rating and heart! :)
Comment: thanks for the awsome pc. We miss FL so much, esp WDW. We were there in Jan 09. We got to stay at Give Kids the world for a week. Our son cried when we had to leave.

Comment: Hi Sara, you did a gorgeous job on the RDJ ATC! Chaplin is his best film, indeed. Should've gotten an Oscar for that performance.

Comment: Thanks for the lovely postcard Sara! I love manatees also, but in Australia they are called dugong. I am pretty sure they are the same. In fact we have seen - at Bribie Island only about 1/2 hr from where we live. Pity about all those jet skis and power boats though. Thanks heaps - Cheers Wendy
Response: They are close relatives yes, I would love to see a Dugong. I think the major difference would be Dugongs have a tail like a dolphin and Manatees have a tail like a big round paddle. Love their cute faces! Anyway, very happy that you liked the postcard and that it reached you. :) You're very welcome! Thanks a bunch for the rating and the heart! :)

I love the details in your ATC's really very nice! Have a good day...and yes I have heard the song, I have always liked it too!
