Comment: Thank you for the skeleton key ATC. I love the colors you used. I'm really into teal and aqua right now - probably because it's Spring! Thank you for the extras also. I put the Easter postcard up with my Spring decorations.
Comment: You did an AMAZING job on your first Altered Text ATC! Love it! I opened my mail at work and my co-workers were amazed and loved it too! (I did have to explain what it was!) They raved at how the little poem turned out! Thank you for an amazing envie all around! A cool altered Text ATC and some awe some extras! I especially love that old photograph! Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!
Response: I'm in the middle of the flu & your comments lifted me up! So sweet- thank you!
Comment: Super wow! Love the adorable notecard...it just makes me smile:) If that wasn't enough, you included an awesome, delicate, extremely well made ATC. Thank you so very much, and for all the extra goodies too. I have seen Green Stamps but never Pink Stamps & the papers & cards, oh my, I've been spoiled! Thank you just doesn't seem sufficient! â™¥
Comment: Cher, your envie brought one word to mind........Inspiration! I love your techniques and all the delicious extras! Thanks so much, I'm looking forward to using these goodies soon! = ) â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡
Comment: Absolutely beautiful Cher!! Stunning and gorgeous all the way. You mentioned you have been using this color combo for awhile. It is one of my favorites and I am so lucky to have one of your atc creations. Thank you too for the lovely extras. They will be cherished and used on future projects for sure. Let me know when you are up for another private swap. I always enjoy swapping with you. Thanks again and tons of hearts for you.
Comment: I like what you sent very much! Girl, you shouldn't even entertain the idea that someone isn't going to be happy with your art. We are always our worst critics! Thank you! Your card is very nice and well made. Oh that's right, we are "experienced" ATC addicts. I should not be surprised, then! LOL
Comment: What a wonderful package of fun! Thank you for sharing your bird cards! i never see the old ones anymore and boy do i look. So i am really pleased with those and all the other butterflies and birds you sent... What a great day at the mail box!
Comment: Hello Cher....thank you so much for the vintage ATC with lace. I love that you used such pretty vintage lace and included separate piece for me to use. also thank you for all the little extras.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely selection of birds and butterflies! The playing cards that you send are super fun! I've never seen any with those designs before. I really like the butterfly printed packing tape you used on the front-where did you find that?
Comment: Wow! Fantastic envie full of goodies... and very nice ATC! Thanks so much. And no problem that you combined swaps -- you sent so many other goodies it could have been 10 swaps!! Oh my!! I look forward to using the papers you sent!
Comment: Thank you very much for the beautiful ATC! I absolutely LOVE it!!! Thank you for all the wonderful special treats as well, especially the super- cute foxes! Oh, wow, it is a fantastic idea to use FOM for ATC! I have used them to wrap gifts LOL, but would be really classy for ATC!!! And I thought many other airlines already went to the iPad manual, glad to know that we are not the only one that is still hauling the heavy manual around...
Comment: THANK YOU for the prayer cards. So cool!!! I never thought to look in a church supply store while we were there. I tried finding milagroes once when we went to Mexico but the only ones I saw were pinned to Mary's skirts! Love the timecards as well. Thanks again for all the stash:)
Comment: Hi Cher,
Beautiful ATC...The butterfly is hidden in all the glorious color! Thanks for the extras, yes I do love ATC's and creating them. I'll enjoy using the extras :)I also loved getting a decorated envy :)

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful card!! I keep thinking I would like to try something that folds or opens or something different. You inspire me to do it. My mom had a lot of creative talent, and I have thought that she would have done more with it with a little encouragement. Thank you for your nice note.

Comment: Thank you for the cute ATC and all the goodies. Funny you should mention it, I just took a class today at Small Studio. I have been going there since Ginny opened last year.

Anyway, thanks again for everything. Hope you do get back for a class. - Joy

Comment: the dress you made for me is absolutely beautiful!! I am going to hang it in my daughter's bedroom as she loves it to pieces â™¥ thank so ever so much for the extra vintage goodies, the playing cards are beautiful!! I appreciate such a thoughtful package!
Response: You are wlecome! your comments made me smile - I have three grown daughters and remember those days!! I'm glad you enjoyed the goodies and I hope you can use them! :)
Comment: Thank you for both postcards! I really liked the one you made! Wow! As for the Bald Eagle postcard - it just goes to show how well we view our national symbol. Minnesota has the 2nd or 3rd largest Bald Eagle population. I drive past a nest on the way to work and back and am alway looking to see one or more of them. It is such an awesome sight. My grandfather was from Missouri (or Misery as he called it - he said as he was a Missourian and as we still had (have) relatives there we could call it that) My family down there tries to get visiting family to choose sides - hence Misery. Am keeping as warm as possible with -13 below looming for morning temps. You stay warm and stay away from those chiggers!
Response: You are welcome! I'm happy to hear that you liked them. Yes, we occasionally refer to here as "Misery", also!! But I'm actually originally from Cleveland: "The Mistake on the Lake"!!!
Comment: thank you for the very nice package. I had fun going through it all.
Response: I love your online name! My husband was born in Italy - still has family there. We were lucky enough to visit again in Dec. and got in on all the Christmas celebrations - lots of befanas everywhere!!! thank you for the heart...cher

I loved them. You have some very interesting and wonderful stamps. When I opened the package, I instantly saw the flamingo! I loved the larger more ornate flamingo and will have fun coloring it in. I thought it was a great swap and hope they have more of them. I would give you more hearts if I could.
Congrats on being a new grandma. My grandaughters are 10, 5, and 2. You will love doing crafts with her. I liked your statement in your profile that says you are a very cool grandma. I think I am too! I will try ATC's soon I promise! Thank you very much for a great swap - Kathleen
