Comment: thanks for the cute ATC card with wings. Although the swap called for card and envie I am happy with the ATC you made special for me. It is really cute and I am going to make a magnet out of it for my fridge!! The Bee Happy theme is adorable. thanks....♥♥♥
Response: Hi Patti. I can't believe I did that! I have been doing ATCs and got totally mixed up!! Thank you so much for your understanding. It was very generous of you to give me the rating and a heart! Would you want me to send a card and envie? Just let me know. I promise to be more careful in the future. 🙄 😘
Comment: Love your atc, Barb, love anything with distress ink on it! Love how the colors blended together! Thank you for sending and thanks for the nice extras!
Response: I am glad that you like it (and the extras)! I really like the sentiment. It was from a stamp set that has a lot of Happy stamps and you put the different sentiments on it. Thank you for the rating and the heart! 🤗
Comment: I really enjoyed your board. I am a cat lover also. I don't know how but I am already following your board. I am going to go back and look through it again you had a lot of beautiful cat clip art.
Response: Thank you. As I said, I got carried away. It is so hard to stop with these boards! Thank you for the rating and the heart. 🤗
Comment: Love Love this ATC-the cat-the saying-and of course the colors! Thanks for the extra teal and small print papers-just wonderful-thanks for sharing!
Response: I really happy that you like it. It was a fun one to make. It took me weeks to figure out what I wanted to use...I finally decided on the cat one and was so glad to see that you like cats! Thank you for the rating and the heart. 🤗
Comment: I love your St. Paddy's March ATC, Barbara, especially the way you made the background--it is beautiful! I must certainly get some of that paper; I've seen it, but not picked up any to try as I wanted to learn what to do with it before investing and not using it! Hope your Easter was a nice day. It was beautiful here and very much a spring finery day. My brothers in SD and WI were both in the mid 30's. I haven't heard from my son and fiance--they are in south-central WI, so were probably pretty chilly as well. Hope you had a most happy birthday! Thanks for a great swap, all the extra goodies as well!
Response: I am so glad that you liked the ATC and goodies. I love to send extras in hope to put a smile on the receiver's face. Had a nice Easter and birthday. Thank you for the rating and the Heart! 🤗
Comment: I loved the ATC, it fits right in to my collection. Thank you so much for it, I hope you get me as a partner again sometime. I loved the extras too, but the ATC could have stood on it's own. Many heart's to you......-)
Response: I have been having problems with my responses showing up. I am not sure if I sent you a PM thanking you for the rating so just in case I didn't, thank you for the rating and ♥️.
Comment: Hi Barb - love the TH ATC that you sent me! I've never tried any of the TH embossing powders but I love the gold one that you used, so Michael's, here I come! Really nice work - thank you! Laurie
Response: I am really glad that you like the ATC. Sometimes I forget all of the TH things that I have and I am always afraid that I won't be able to use 3 things. Then I go through my stuff and say to myself wow, you forgot about that thing! Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Response: Same to you. LOL! I am constantly adding more snarky quotes to my board. I just love them. A lot of them remind me of my daughter. She is a snarky guru! LOL! Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: I love this chilly cat! He/she certainly looks dazed by the cold that has never been experienced before! We did have a small amount of show that collected around the fence in our backyard and stayed there for 3 days! I love it as I'm a firm lover of winter, especially of snow! Even after 40 years here in Houston, I still miss fall's beauty and the bliss and quiet of soft snow falling in the dark! Blizzard conditions mean STAY HOME and be safe and snow is heavy to scoop away from sidewalks and driveways. But it is one the most beautiful parts of nature----for me, at least. Thanks for all of the little extras; I will certainly have uses for them. However, my rating is based on the ATC itself. I like the way the oxide inks worked to give a snowy sky background; I want to play with the colors you used to see if I can come close to what you did in one ATC swap I have coming up soon.Have a good weekend!
Response: Thank you Peggy. I am really glad that you like the ATC. It sure was fun making it. I use to like the snow and quietude that comes with it but I have been a Florida girl for about 40 years and the thought of having to deal with the snow after all of these years makes me cringe! LOL ðŸ˜œ I know that I don't have to send extras but I really do enjoy sending things to people that I think would enjoy them. Thank you for the rating and heart! ðŸ˜˜
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful cat ATC and card! I miss She Scrapbooks! There are no scrapbooking or stamp stores anymore. :(
Response: Glad you like them. I know what you mean about stamp stores closing. I have ordered from She after they closed their store. She works a mile from me and just brought it down to me. Not sure if she still does mail order. Must check it out... Thank you for the rating and the heart! â¤ï¸ Much appreciated!
Comment: Hello Barbara, thank you so much for the cute snowman ATC (and the extras!). I love it! :D
Response: Hi. I am so glad that you like what I sent. The snowman ATC was one of my favorites. I really love the way it turned out and I am glad that you like it too! Thank you for the rating and the heart! â¤ï¸
Comment: Oh my goodness, I love this card. You made a perfect background for this card. I am putting this card out for a Halloween decoration now. Thank you for the goodies for me to use.
Response: Wow, I am really glad that you like it so much. I love all things Tim Holtz and I always have so much fun making these cards.Thank you for the rating and the Heart! Enjoy and Happy Halloween. ðŸ˜˜ ðŸŽƒ
Comment: Oh my goodness, what a beautiful card you made, Barb! I love how you made the Christmas colors into fall. So pretty!! Thank you, too, for the fantastic extra papers you sent me. I can tell you read my profile! :-) This was a great swap to receive. Thank You!
Response: I am really glad that you like it. I always look at people's profile so that I can send them something that I think they would like. I enjoyed doing the Christmas colors for fall. Fun swap. Thank you for the rating and the â¤ï¸ it means a lot to me! ðŸ˜˜
Comment: great job on the ATC! love the way it turned out!
Response: Thanks. This is the first time I have ever done anything like this. I was pleased with the way it turned out too. It wasn't easy to keep the foil on the ATC! Thanks for the rating and the heart! ðŸ˜˜
Comment: Thanks Barb for a great postcard. Did you paint the cat? It's amazing. I love that stamp too. I have it also and love it.
Response: I'm so glad you like it. Yes, I painted it with watercolor. I made it look like my cat, Rusty. Really had a great time making the postcard. I saw that you liked birds and cats, hence the bird on his head. ðŸ˜€ Thank you for the rating and heart.! â™¥ï¸
Comment: Thanks for the very colorful "lovely" L ! -- and the extra goodies too! I don't have much experience w the 4" squares, but I think you've inspired me!ðŸ˜€
Response: I'm glad you liked the ATC and extras. The Zentangle tile is actually 3 Â½ " x 3 Â½ ". That is the size of the official Zentangle tiles. You should try and take a class with a local CZT. You will love it and learn so much! Just go to
zentangle.com and they list all of the CZTs. All you have to do is check for your state and then city...Good luck and let me know if you do it. Oh, thank you for the rating and the heart! ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Hi Barb! Thanks so much for the adorable cat ATC. Is that a Tim Holz stamp? He does a set of birds, too..right? As you can tell, I don't have either set... Not for lack of wanting! Lol. I love the expression on the cat's face.. "who, me,?"
I also adore the card you sent!! Did you make it? You are so talented!!! You said I can reuse it... I want to frame it! Thank you for being such a great partner â˜º
Response: Yes, It is a Tim Holtz stamp. In addition to the cats and birds, he also has dogs. I have them all and they are great fun to use! Glad you like the card, also. You are welcome to do whatever you want with the card. Thank you for the nice compliment and heart rating. It made my day! ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Hi Barbara :-) . . . Please forgive my late rating habit. I am affected by ADD distractions and Old-timers forgetfulness. I adore your twinchies! and really appreciate the effort to match my likes from my profile. I especially love the circle shaped one with the 8 sections and the lovely blue and green background. I like the pencils and the flower and the one with the heart attached. :-D I like ALL of them! You do very nice work and I love your creativity. Thanks for sending the extra bits too and for sending me such a great swap!
Response: Hi Gracie. I am so glad you like them. I try to take in to consideration the person's likes and dislikes when I am doing a swap, even if it is not required. It is just what I do. LOL! Thank you for the lovely compliments as well as the heart. Hope we can swap again soon.
Comment: Thanks for the swap. This was my first twinchies swap. The twinchies are cute & the. Zentang!e tile is great. My z ski!L's are not that good yet.
Response: This was my first one also. glad you like everything. I am a CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher). You should find one in your area who can really teach you the method. It helps tremendously! Thank you for the rating and the heart. ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC! I didn't have any of a tree in my collection so I was definitely happy to get yours, plus the extras! What an awesome little artwork! Love them both, thanks again. Sorry to hear about your mom too. Hugsx â¤â¤â¤â¤â¤
Response: I'm glad you like everything! It always makes me happy to make someone else happy! ðŸ˜ƒ Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Love the cardinal and the nice tangles. Interesting that I lived many years in Ohio and now live in North Carolina and both states have the cardinal as their state bird. Thanks for the wee tangled square! Are you teaching zentangle at The Villages? See ya at the mail box.
Response: I'm really glad you liked what I sent. Yes, I do teach Zentangle here in the Villages. I love to teach. It is a lot of fun to see people do things that they never thought that they could do! Thanks for the heart. ðŸ™‚
Comment: You make the loveliest postcards! I love this little kitty. It is definitely a keeper. You can get me as a partner anytime LOL! Thanks!
Response: I am so glad that you like it. The lady at the post office wanted to keep it! ðŸ˜ƒ It is one of my old favorite stamps and I hadn't use it in a while. Glad I chose that one! Thanks for the heart...
Comment: Sweet Rusty - I hope you get everything you want for Catmas from Santa! It's too bad Felix doesn't know how to behave nicely! My own Shelby, Dodger, and Shadow all know how that feels, but they all do it to each other on occasion. Then other times, they are all curled up together asleep. You look very cozy next to Daddy, by the way! Merry Catmas, Rusty!
Response: Thank you for the heart. Yes, they both like to curl up on Daddy's lap. They will never be in the same space together unless Felix is going after Rusty. Hopefully, this too will pass! Merry Christmas! ðŸŽ„
Comment: I'm so sorry to hear your boys don't get along! I have that problem a bit myself but it has gotten better with time. Thanks for the e-mail. I really enjoyed it. Merry Catmas!
Response: Thank you for the heart! I hope my boy get better with time. It has not been quite a year that we have had them. They are really both quite sweet when they are alone with us. Merry Christmas. ðŸŽ„
Comment: So, so sorry this is late! Thank you so very much for the awesome Zentanglings ~ I love mine so much! I am going to the library Tuesday and I am going to leave it there! If I remember I will take a picture of it! Thanks again so much!!
Response: Not a problem. I am glad you like the Zentangles. The library is a great place to leave it! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for sharing! yes i too, do want to start making more Christmas decorations! i have started last year, but this year have been too too busy with moving out! Thank you for sharing, i followed you and repined a bunch! xxx
Response: Glad you were able to re-pin some of the ideas. Hope you are able to make a few this year.
Comment: Hi Barbara I received your lovely yellow inchies card. Thanks so much for it and for the great Zentangling piece that you sent. I only wish that I could Zentangle as well as you. Hope we swap again sometime. Pat
