We like to go to the Botanical Garden for the Japanese Festival at the end of summer, but sometimes we are able to make more than one trip.

Comment: Hi Penny! Thanks for the great inside view of St. Louis . . . I loved all your fun facts (waffle cones and Aunt Jemima--I'll definitely remember those) and the neat postcards you sent.

The blue and yellow ribbon matches so perfectly with the layout, this is just too cute! I love Spanky and Pete, that brings back wonderful memories when I watched all the "little rascals" videos with my sons when they were small. I like the collage and the sparkle ribbon with the adorable dog. I like how you put them in their own envelopes, I will have to try that. You have amazing talents and I am very inspired by your work. Thank you for all the goodies as well, I love all the pretty napkins, I don't have anything like these. I can't wait to do some decoupage with these. The metal embellishments are awesome! I needed some smaller ones and I can't wait to use these. The pretty card, ribbon and crochet piece, Wow you went above and beyond.

Response: omg-I am sorry it got torn up. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: The item arrived...not all the pockets were filled..the paper use was not vintage..just black paper...low quality and poorly cut no care was taken...completely crooked...several pieces dont even fit..too large or too small..looks like scaps used...I am very disappointed.
Comment: Love the xyz 4 x 4's!! They are all Striking and so unique. My fave is the Zoo card but they all run close to fave and it is hard to choose one. You are really good at making these interesting pieces of art. Love the extras too. Especially the German card and pages. I forgot to add your extras but will make it up to you in seasonal. Your cards are once again an awesome lot! Danki!!
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart! I am really enjoying the cooler weather.
Comment: Thanks for the fun "winged things" ATCs and the cool lorikeet/bunting images. You are so lucky to live near an Audubon park--sounds like you get to see some incredible birds. I have been delighted this summer by little yellow finches that are drawn to my sunflowers--not for the seeds, but to sit on the leaves and rip holes in them as they eat "salad"--who knew?!? I thought they just ate bugs, but I guess not! :)
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart! We rarely see yellow birds in our yard. Glad you enjoyed your swap.
Comment: The 3 4 x 4 cards are awesome as usual! Beautiful cards!! The extras and note is always a nice touch that you add to your package. Love the embellishments! I will be sending mine to you next week. God Bless!!!

Comment: Hi Penny!! Oh I love your pages!! They are beautiful! The dolphins on the corn salad page are so cute! I am excited to make that recipe! Your bible verse page is just lovely. The tree by the stream looks so peaceful! I love the Garden Sanctuary poem. I think I could just jump right into that picture and spend the day! I am so sorry your garden got washed away in the rain. That is a way to much rain! Thanks for the beautiful swap! xxoo Shannon
Comment: Thank you! All the journal pages are absolutely wonderful! The page with the Bible verse is beautiful and I absolutely love the page with the poem "My Garden Is My Sanctuary". I haven't finished reading all the garden tips, but did read the recipes and will be trying them. Thank you for joining the swap! I hope to see you in the next one! Have A Happy Day! :)
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. This was fun to put together. I am so glad that you enjoyed it.

Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. Thanks for your prayers.
Comment: Hi Penny! Oh my what beautiful journal pages! Thank you so very much! I would not have thought to add fabric and ribbons, but don't be surprised if you see me use that on our next pages! I love it! I have so enjoyed going through each page again and again. So lovely. I cut out the little note page that you had on the front of the envelope and am going to use it in my bible journal. I love the ocean picture and the quote that was on it. Is the picture on your introduction page of the pansy one from your garden? It is just beautiful! I love your spring page where you put that you wilt in the hot sun like pansies! I do too! I love pansies and had a big barrel of them in my garden a few years ago! Guess what!? They seeded themselves somehow in the rocks under my deck, so all under my deck is a sea of beautiful pansies! Funny! Thanks again for the pages! I am so excited that you joined in! We will have fabulous journals at the end of the year!
Response: Thank you for the great review and the heart. So glad that you enjoyed them.
Comment: The Quilt card is my fave card this time around. Very nice and brought back a lot of memories. The Dream your Dream and Hope Your Hope Rainbow card is beautiful. Well thought out. The Sapphire card and its embellishments and different blue colorings is such a spectacular & calming card. The Time flies card shows artistry at its finest. All your cards show what a great artist you are and they show a lot of thinking & planning that you put into your cards to make them all come together & tell their story. Gorgeous work, Penny and you deserve many stars, hearts & kudos. God Bless! You are a wonderful partner, super swapper. Love the extras!! Danki!!

Comment: Beautiful 4x4's. The extras are wonderful. You outdid yourself again but that is nothing new. The Mahogany card is awesome, love the embellishments. The No card is just plain out of this world. Love the fabrics. The Ocean card is another embellishment lovely. The Peacock card is my favorite and not only gorgeous but learning and informative. Super cards, Penny. You amaze me with talent. I am ready when you are for the next set. We are winding the alphabet down. God Bless.

Comment: Thank you so much for the loveliest envelope ever! It just arrived and made me so happy! There's nothing like getting home after a hard working day and finding such a wonderful thing in the mailbox. Thanks for all the effort you put into this swap and for the goodies that came inside. Have a lovely day. You sure did mine bright and shine!
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart. I am so glad that you enjoyed it. It is so much fun to go to the mailbox with swap bot.
Comment: I love you precious ATC. It's so "springy". I didn't grow up in MD so I don't know the places you mentioned in your note...lol! But what you said about missing the ocean is true....even for me. You wouldn't think living by the bay would be much different than living by the ocean but it is. In RI I could drive a mile in any direction and could see the ocean and the crashing waves on Ocean Drive. The bay is just different...I can't explain it. And seagulls! I never see them here. Although I don't miss them pooping on my car!!! Thanks again!
Comment: Got your lovely 4 x 4's in the mail today. Both are awesome! The lemonade card is adorable and brings back memories of my children and grandkids having a lemonade stand. The Kite card is amazing. Love your cards as usual. Happy Easter! Have a wonderful family time in Indiana with both sets of folks. Your Mom will be in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless!
Response: thank you for the rating and red heart and kind words.
Comment: Oh my goodness, Penny. What beautiful life verse cards you have made for me! They are works of art! Thank you so much for such a lovely swap! You are right that this is a time consuming swap, to be sure! I worked on mine most of yesterday and didn't finish!. We will all have quite a collection of Life Verses to cherish through the years, so you are right that it is totally worth it! Give Lucky a big kiss for me! His name is very fitting since he is 15! That is quite the big deal! My Zoey turned 7 on March 6th, so we had a party for her!! :) Thank you again so very much for this swap! I think the blue one is a napkin!! Am I right? :) Oh! I love them all!! I love the glittery, sparklie treasures you sent me as well! Oh, the things I will make with them!! :)
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. You are correct the blue one is a napkin. I am so glad that you enjoyed the swap.
Comment: Wowzer! You continue to outdo yourself. The Patty's card is gorgeous and I am drooling over the lighthouse card. Your artwork is fantastic. The extras are great and the story about Hanna is so endearing. Such caring and bravery. Louise also was so helpful, caring and kind. Your talent shines Penny, keep up the great work. Happy Swapping. I am getting ready to start on I and J before the busy season. God Bless.
Response: thank you for the rating and the heart. I will set up I and J this week.
Comment: Thank you for your lovely art journal backgrounds :) You should definitely invest in a gelli plate and brayer. (you can never have too many art supplies....that's what I tell myself anyway! haha!) Apologies for rating late!
Response: thanks for the rating and the heart. Glad it made it to you.
Comment: Thank you for the thing 1 & 2 valentine. This swap was so much fun! I appreciate the washi tape, too. Yes I am very blessed my granddaughter lives close & likes to craft with me. I hope to do it with her for many years to come.
Comment: Two most beautiful 4" x 4"'s came in the mail today. Awesome as usual. I love the Fan card. We must have had the same thoughts. I absolutely am IN love with the courthouse card. Beautiful work. These 2 cards rank number one and are gorgeous. I framed these two along with others and they are in my office-craftroom. Let me know when the next is as I will have some free time coming up shortly before it turns busy again. Enjoy Swapping!

Comment: Oh Penny, thanks for the sweet ATC! I can just see the fairy running quickly into the pebble framed door.surrounded by glistening snow. Thanks for the glitzy trims. They will get used quickly!
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. This is such a fun series-so glad that you liked the act.
Comment: What a beautiful card. Thank you very much. I will put the buttons and ribbon flowers to good use as well. I was actually born in Asheville and most of my extended family is still in the area. Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
Comment: I got your ATCs today, and it was right after I opened a bunch of stocking stuffer swaps.-- some where Tink related. The ATC was perfect also because we were watching the making of Peter Pan! I also loved the lighthouse card and thr Red Goose brown shoes! We had Buster Brown and Red Goose shoes when I was a kid. I always wanted the brown tie shoes because they were the official Brownie and Girl Scout shoes. They were a little expensive and only one girl in our troop had them but we all thought they were so cool. When we were teens , we would have died before we would wear them! Thanks for the memories.
Response: thanks for the rating and the heart. so glad that gave you good memories.
Comment: I received your ATC, I had to put a lot of it together again when I opened the envelope, I feel maybe you should have took a little more time on it. I would have rather had it sent a little late and done better than early and falling apart.
Thanks for sending it at least, that's why I rated you a 5 but no heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome D 4 x 4. Superb!! I love all the extras. What lovely items! A+ all the way as always!! Do have a fun, safe, happy and very Merry Christmas and a most joyous New Year! Looking forward to E, F and G cards. Happy Swapping!!

Comment: Thank you for the October ATC. My husband just bought a Hummer, which I refuse to drive. It's an H2 so it's too big for me. I can barely climb up in it because I am short. I would love to go to Mall of America, but we would have to drive the Hummer instead of riding the Harley because I would need a lot of room for my purchases.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful profile care package! I love everything and will definitely use it in my projects. Going to try converting some of the earrings to pierced as they are so lovely.
Response: I am so glad that you liked it. The pictures looked good online but you never know until you see it in person. Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Hi Penny, I would give you more hearts if I could! I loved the ATC and all the buttons, thanks so much! This was a fun swap, I also enjoyed creating a Seek n Find ATC for my partner. I also enjoyed the note you sent with your swap. I hope to get to send to you in a future swap!

Comment: *:ï½¥ï¾Ÿâœ§*:ï½¥ï¾Ÿâœ§ Thank you for the wonderful letter! I have some interesting bit of reading to do this weekend! The local artist is amazing! I wish I had such skills! I do agree with you there, every city needs some kind of museum or some place to reflect on the local history. The shire my family is in is pushing to have a new information center to display our local history and a recent fossil discovery. Its very exciting and it would be nice to have such an interesting item on display, that I helped dig up â—•â€¿â†¼. Happy birthday to your city! Its sounds like a lovely place you live in. We live next to a river, but I bet your lake has less bitey things in it. Thanks you very much again. *:ï½¥ï¾Ÿâœ§*:ï½¥ï¾Ÿâœ§
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart. You helped to dig a fossil-I would like to hear more about that. pm me for Email address.
Comment: *:ï½¥ï¾Ÿâœ§*:ï½¥ï¾Ÿâœ§Thankyou for the lovely envie filled with lots of interesting facts and images from your local region. And thanks for all the extra cute stamp images and stickers \(â—•â€¿â—•âœ¿)/ I should be able to figure something cool out so I can use them â—•â€¿â†¼. Hope its nice weather over there! *:ï½¥ï¾Ÿâœ§*:ï½¥ï¾Ÿâœ§

What line is the "pansy paper" from? It is gorgeous!! All the different embellishments you used are so me!!! Thank you for putting so much effort into this puzzle and for the extra surprises...I loved it all!!! <3 <3 <3
