Now . . . on the the extras! You completely outdid yourself and I must must MUST know where you got those beautiful white, glittered embellishments. The sweet lamb and the dove and the little hand holding the rose . . . I LOVE them! Thank you for making this such a wonderful swap for me to open . . . you're the BEST!
Response: I am so happy you liked it,Isabella my friend. I love decorating my cards but for some reason it takes me forever. I try to do the best I can with what I have, so many things I have to improvise with but it makes it more fun.! It's all about creativity, right? Love to have you as my partner! Thank you!
Comment: The following is no way hyperbole!!! This is beyond doubt the coolest atc ever! I freaking love it.. so smart and clever .. it is not only a perfect mini art piece it is bringing so many memories... thank you for this and for the best ever extras!!
Response: So glad you like it!
Hope to swap with you again soon!
Comment: Hi Kathie! Nice to swap with you again...it's been awhile. Thank you so much for the lovely gothic arch atc...just beautiful and I love it! Love the fact that it has birds...you are right, can never go wrong with birds when it comes to pleasing me! So pretty. Thank you also for the great extras.

I'm going to use the beautiful bird cage today!! And the feathers! I'm still loving the outdoors, nice and warm here in Oregon high 80!
Comment: What a clever idea. Love it! One of the best in awhile, especially with a broken arm. Know that feeling...I have had three shoulder replacements in 15 months it is amazing what you can do with one arm. Thank you for a wonderful ATC and the cute extras.
Comment: Kathie, my friend, you have been through so much! I hate to think of you in pain and unable to play with craft supplies...hopefully that wrist will heal beautifully and you will be as good as new in no time. This book page ATC is one of the most beautiful I've seen, and so unusual! It has an Art Deco vibe, which I adore. Thank you for always sending your very best...I am so lucky to have been your "send to" partner for this swap!
Response: thank you so much, Donetta! You always make me feel better!
Comment: How did that old saying go...I need a man the way a fish needs a bicycle... Thanks for the fun image and interesting background. The wax crayons make an interesting background, don't they!? Also thanks for the lovely note.
I hear you about the crappy last year. We are still recovering from the fire that destroyed our building. Here is hoping for a much better new year for both of us!
Response: Amen! And thank you so much for the rating!
Things have to get better!
Comment: Hi Kathie!!! So glad to be partnered together again! I love your ATC with the sweet little bird perched on the chair--so clever. I really miss swapping together.

Response: Oh Bev, YOU ROCK!
No I haven't seen Mick for a bit.
I am a vegetarian and he is not so that poses a problem to our relationship.

Comment: Hi Kathie, Received my wonderful mother and child ATC today, and I don't care what your sister says, the tiny fabric leaves you added are amazing! Such a sweet image that you used as well. It's really lovely. And thank you for all the extras you sent as well - I especially love the white feathers! I'll have fun using all the things you sent. Cheers! Laurie
Thank you so much!
(I am glad you agree with me)
Glad you liked the extras!

Response: You are so welcome AND thank you , Marsha
Comment: Kathie, thanks for a beautiful APC--I love the way you designed it so nicely. I like the thin gold thread that adds an extra bit of color as well as texture. I am pleased to add this card to my collection. Hope all is going well for you--I also hope we get to be partners again soon!

Comment: Hello my dear friend! Your ATC is simply gorgeous! So many beautiful layers all coordinated to make one spectacular ATC! Your use of dimension and color really pops. I miss swapping together a lot. Thanks, also, for the lovely letter your sent my way. You're the best!
Response: So good to hear from you! I'm happy you liked the ATC. Thank you!
Comment: Kathie--the twinchies are adorable, given my love of dogs and all things vintage, and just a touch of fun/whimsy, you couldn't have sent anything more clever. Where ever did you find the pictures? Also, you are right, I cannot remember how long it's been since we swap with each other! And we are still in so many of the same groups, it is truly surprising! I've missed you and your art--let's hope for more swaps with each other coming in the weeks ahead. Thanks for a terrific swap!
Response: Thank you so much!
I am enjoyed making them and I am happy you were my partner.
Well swap very soon!
Comment: Rhode Island rules! I'm so used to being the only one from rhode island it's great to meet up with another. And to get such a lovely envelope was even better. Thx for such a great atc, and thx for all the goodies. Wish I could grant more hearts. Wicked good!

Response: Thank you so much!
And enjoy your summer!
Comment: Beautiful card. I love the gold around the edges. Love the old postcard too. Thank you so much. Maybe you'll get to visit Alabama some day. Lots of history here in Montgomery. One of my favorite places to visit is the Unclaimed Baggage store in Scottsboro. And, of course, there are the beautiful beaches on the Gulf.
Response: I'm so glad you liked your card!
Alabama sounds great! Who knows, maybe someday ill go exploring which is my favorite thing to do.
Comment: Sweet Kathie, it's such a pleasure to have you as my swap partner! I love your beautiful "shades of purple" ATC...so, so pretty. And the sweet extras are wonderful, as always.

Response: Thank you so much , Donetta. I appreciate everything.
Comment: Thank you so much for the absolutely beautiful ATC :)! Love everything on it (not to mention the Graphic45-paper) and the folded corners at the bottom are super cool idea!

Response: It means a lot to me that you enjoyed it. Thank you so much!
Comment: Hello sweet friend! Thank you for the amazing ATC! Your moon is just perfect. I can't believe yours turned out so beautifully--my foray into paper casting was a disaster! I would love to hear how you created your moon. All the little extra elements are perfect--the ticket, the music. A definite keeper!
Comment: Katie, thank you so much for the awesome ATC with a postage stamp...I really like it so much. I love all the little elements you put in, especially the fabric and the tiny envelope with my name on it...so adorable! Thank you also for the old, vintage postcard. I can't believe that it has the year 1909 on it and a stamp for 1 cent! Thank you...I will treasure that for sure!
Response: I am so glad you liked it! Thank you.
yes the vintage postcards are awesome!
Comment: love it !! how do you come up with these ideas? so cool (ok I know cool is out of date) but love the folded corners and tuck ins...but that face and crown so cute! you got style kid...that postcard meant something i'll message yu about...thanks so much for this swap

Response: I am so glad you liked it!
Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Hi friend! I loved your ATC . . . what did you use for the beautiful blue? is it ink? SUCH a pretty color! I like the vintage image too, of course, and your use of text . . . "please answer the phone!" Thanks for the cute extras and the sweetheart note.....hugs and more hugs.
Response: Hi! How are you, miss Isabella?
Thank you for your rating!
The blue on the card is my favorite toy, alcohol inks. I never get tired of playing with them.
Comment: I'll say I "like" this ATC! In fact, I love it...I keep picking it up again and finding additional details! Kathie, I can see that you put your whole heart into your art, and I am very lucky to be the recipient of this beauty. Thank you!
Response: Donetta, you are so sweet as usual. Thank you so much for your rating and your welcomed compliments.
Comment: Love your Roseredrabbit atc, Kathie! And those little bitty flowers are so cute! Thank you so much and also for the nifty bits and pieces! Best wishes for your recovery!
Response: Thank you for the rating! I just love making the tiny flowers. There easy and practically free.
Thank you also for your well wishes. If I knew rotator cuff surgery was such a long and painful recovery, I would have just yanked my whole arm off. Kathie
Comment: Hello my friend! LOVE your sweet ATC! The layering is so creative and the colors (pink and green) are my absolute favs. I adore the multi-tiered punchies at the top. I always forget about using postage stamps 'til I see them on another ATC! Yours is beautiful. Thank you for creating something special for me, dear friend.
Response: Thank you, Isabella, for the rating and the complement! I am glad you enjoyed it!
Comment: Kathie, lucky me to receive these gorgeous bird houses! So many details to appreciate. Thank you for the unique origami papers and being a great swap partner. Nice to trade with you again and enjoyed your note. :)
Thank you! I am so glad you enjoyed them.
I love inchies. I love to use origami paper in doing backgrounds. Take care!
Comment: Oh, Kathie! It's so beautiful! So intricate and full of fabulous details! And those amazing extras...you know how to make me smile, girlfriend! All good wishes for that shoulder; before long you'll be as good as new.
Response: Thank you so much, Donetta!
I am so happy you enjoyed the card!
It means alot coming from such a creative woman!
Comment: another really well made and creative atc...thanks so much...loved everything about this...especially the image and the little group of things at the top...how do you come up with this stuff...and thanks for the great great extras...but i'll have to pass on the polystyle...i have those colors but if you find a nice pepto-pink suit...let me know !!
Response: Pepto as in Pepto Bismol? I'm sure I can find one of those.
I am glad you liked the card and thank you very much!
Comment: Oh Kathie, such love for this beautiful card. So many layers to adore. And WOW! Your homemade flowers. I can't ask you to send me a billion of them but I would love to know how you made them so I can make some for myself. Hugs!!
I am so happy you enjoyed the card! Thank you!
These were actually the big flowers. I love the teensy weensy ones I make.
All you do is use a little flower punch, cut out several of them and put a needle and thread through the bottom and just add to this row. When you pull the needle out of the top flower petals, you put a bead or pearl on the string and then stick the needlle back in the same place (or close to) where you brought the needle up. the pearl holds it together. push the needle down through the top petals (not through the pearl) and tie the threads together under the flower.
Fluff them out with a pin.
Voila! they are fun when you get the hang of it.
Comment: Hi Kathie. I just love your ATC. Really makes me want to travel far far away for oh, let's say half a year or so. Nothing but relaxation! You were so creative making this and it indeed is a treasure. And yes, I have been to the Crystal Bridges Museum. It is pretty, tons of art to look at, etc. Amazing they would build something so extravagant in Arkansas, LOL. Many hugs to you!!
You should come to Florida with me next month! Beaches.....and lots of stuff!
I know what its like to need a change.
Thank you so much for the rating! I do love sticker swaps.
(would love to see that museum)
Comment: Thanks so much for the ATC - those were some cool vintage circus images and I thought the lollipop was a nice touch! Sorry for my delay in rating, I must re-teach my husband how to sort our mail, LOL.
Response: I am glad you found the card and enjoyed it!
(husbands can be so troublesome)
Thank you for the rating!!
Comment: Don't know if this is the first one or not - you have 3/15 as the date you made it. It's great! Well, well, well - got the first one yesterday (4/20)! Very nice, also. Another heart for you <3
Response: If there is an elephant on it it is the first one!
Comment: Kathie, Thank you for this awesome "ATC with a key". This card is so nice, love the layers and the little bead attached to the key. Super, super cute! Thank you also for the extra papers and ribbon. I will use them soon. Happy swapping! : )
Response: Thank you for your rating, Bev.
I am so glad you liked the card done by the one arm bandit.
(Just had surgery)
You are always so gracious in your comments.
Comment: Adorable! I love the Creole Bird Biscuit (LOL!)...I love everything about this ATC! Thank you so much for being a wonderful swap partner, dear...and I'm sending wishes for a speedy recovery and full use of that shoulder again!
Response: Thank you for the rating, Donetta, and thank you so much for the well wishes!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely atc with the sweet little girl; I love it. I really like how you made it with different layers of lace and backgrounds. The punched borders were vey pretty, attached to the top. We had a bad winter here, especially the last month. However, now we have had severla days of sunshine and warmth which was a great jail breaker!
Response: I am so glad you liked it! Thank you so much for the rating!
I am happy also, that Spring is actually going to grace us with its presence.
Comment: Ooh! Thank you Kathie for the fantastic work with the tiny mail inchies. As a former miniatures-nerd I'm stunned!
Today was my first having-tea-outdoors-on-the-front-steps-day here in Sweden. Love spring and I feel sorry for you having snow in new England! <3
Response: I'm so happy you liked it!
I'm absolutely a "tiny things " nerd
I do believe we may have a spring time after all!
Comment: Kathie, I love the ATC--I do like earth tones,especially rich browns that go with my love of greens and blues--the ground, the grass and trees, and the sky--God's color palette! I have used the alcoholic inks before and love the beautiful effects of their blending, always a bit different when I even use the same colors. And thank you for the truly vintage French postcard . . . wherever did you find it? I think I am reading it correctly but will need to check a dictionary to be certain I have it right. I used to read French well enough to take an Intro to French Literature class to go along with my English Lit major. I can still read it pretty well because of the literature context, but I've gotten pretty rusty since that course back in 1970! I am not going to share that postcard with anyone--only use it someway in something I"m making for myself. Thanks so much for a wonderful swap!
I am very happy you liked it! I was hoping you would not think the browns were too dark or dull. I love the colors!
I am glad you enjoy the post card. I got it at an antique store in Florida.
Comment: What can I say? These are the most adorable inchies EVER...the level of detail in each little (teensy tiny!) purse is incredible. I bow to you, Miss Kathie...I bow deeply, even though it hurts my bad knee!
Response: Donetta, thank you for the rating!
You get to use one purse at a time for special occasions.
Comment: StUnNiNg!!! This silver grey embossed atc is to die for. Oh I am so lucky to have this beauty you created. Gosh Kathie, it is just down right gorgeous!!! I enjoy receiving your notes in my mailbox to hear how you have been doing. I need to truly sit and write you a letter. I keep saying I will and another day passes. Happy thoughts to you always and I promise I WILL WRITE, LOL. XXX
Response: Well thank you so much!!!!
That was one of the three embossing sleeves that you sent me. I don't have a cuddlebug so I use my pasta machine! Happy Valentine's day!!!
Comment: Yippee!!! Another awesome swap from you. I love your style of pocket atc's and really enjoyed looking at all the details from the atc to the pocket's cute surprises. Your tiny little images just melt my heart every time. I love hearing from you! Thank you thank you XXX
Response: Sheryl, you are such a sweetie!
I was happy I had gotten your name as a swap partner!
Comment: Hi Kathie. This atc is priceless to me!!! The view from the window seeing the cows in the pasture brings back lovely memories. I had many years living in the country and my view from the window were cows, oak trees, horses, etc. Your atc is so pretty. Thank you, thank you!! Hugs XXX
Response: I am so happy you like it! That is a picture of my brother's cows. This was such a fun swap.
Thank you for the rating, Sheryl.
Comment: Great ATC-loved the embossing and other details AND what wonderful extras you sent-all the little stuff I love to get and even a paperdoll duck-or maybe goose! We haven't had a snow here that has been even an inch at a time-strange winter-but cold!

Thank you for. The rating!

Response: sorry I'm late in responding thank you so very much for the rating
Comment: Gorgeous card. Very nice...gotta rush Mick and the boys are in town.....truly ruly. I am sure they will be over as soon as they have finished rehearsing. Try not to be too jealous ðŸ˜›. Have a warm time in Florida.

Response: You are so welcome, donetta. I am glad you like it!
Comment: I can only imagine that this is a sheet left lying around by Mick last time he was over. Thanks for parting with it. I love the silver border.the kangaroo is a bit quiet being winter..no doubt he may appear your way in summer when he goes looking for food. is this conversation a sign of dementia onset. lol
Response: Absolutely Bev. Seeing that I really believe Mick is going to marry me and we'll have a pet kangaroo, I guess people may wonder? But I have people like you who actually believe me!!! LOL Oh and I thank you for the rating!!
Comment: Oh Kathie, it's gorgeous! Such a beautiful lacy ATC with pink roses...I love it. Thank you also for the vintage ephemera, and the lovely charms...you know I will find a use for everything! XXX, dear friend!

Response: I am glad you liked it! Thank you for the rating, Marjore!
Comment: Kathie, you out did yourself on these beautiful inchies. I really really like them. Oh and those itty bitty postage stamps. Please send me a message telling me where you found those. I must get some. The images are super on each one of these little treasures. Also, I loved your letter. And you are so correct about what we all share living on this planet. : )
Response: So glad you liked it, Sheryl!
I'll send you some teeny weeny stamps!
Comment: Kathie, I love your vintage ATC...here in the (not so wild) west, we have nothing approaching the antiquity of your beautiful state. I love the presentation, and (of course, being me) I love the sweet extras too! It's a pleasure swapping with you!
Thank you so much!
I am glad you liked my brief history lesson!
You're always the sweetest
Comment: Where did you find that pic of me on my Paris tour!?!??it was my Audrey Hepburn period... Oh love the pant suit and just bought a bid pink hair bow and big zebra sunglasses to go with!! Love the atc and extras...merci beaucoup!
Response: i knew it was you!!!
thank you for the rating, Audrey!
Comment: Kathie, it's beautiful. We chose the same musical instrument! I love the cohesive details, and your attention to detail on this ATC. And the 1906 postcard...incredible! Thank you so much for being such a wonderful swap partner, dear!
Response: Forgive me for responding so late! I don't know how you guys can keep up while running the groups!
I can spend all day on one swap and then tear it up and do it over cause it's not up to my standard. So I'm so busy with swapbotb and also embarrassed that I can't do as many as everyone else. But I'm getting a bit better(I hope)
Comment: H friend! First, thanks for participating even though it was just the 2 of us. I adore your ATC--that's a very unique image and I love it. Your embellishments were just right--it's a total keeper! Thank you as well for all the sweet goodies you sent. I'm just crazy for vintage postcards. You're the best! Your friend, Isabella
Response: What can I say? the best for the BEST! Thats you!
Comment: So adorable Kathie. Each and every little face just warms my heart. You made your small tiny buttons? WOW! How did you get them in such a perfect circle? Can you please send me a little message telling me how you did these. I love clay and would love to make some buttons as well. Thank you for these sweet little inchies so much.
Response: Hi Sheryl, The buttons are very easy. After you roll your clay punch the little buttons out using a straw. That way if they get stuck, you just blow into the other end to get it out.
The holes were too small to make with a pin (for me, anyway), so I used a tiny drill on my dremel after they baked. Such fun!
Comment: Oh Kathie - If you only knew how much the windmills in Holland mean to me. Your entire details in this card are so pretty and I thank you so much. P.S. your queen RAK is going out soon I promise. : )
Response: I love windmills! I would love to visit the netherlands. Imagine seeing them with all those gorgeous tulips they grow?
Comment: Ok Kathie. You were on the ball with this card for sure. Beautiful colors, layers, great images and decoration. Your happy thoughts ring loud and clear on this card. It is stunning! Thank you so much.
Comment: I love this card! It is so clever, beautifully crafted and such fun... Wish I had thought of that... Great work... Am putting a back on your drawing and adding to my collection of favorites!!! Love it..even though it "ain't gonna" happen!!
Comment: Well Kathie, we get to say hello again. It is always so nice hearing from you. You know I think of you often and always wish you the happiest of days. Your inchies are so bright and cheery. So darn cute too. You spent so much time on all the tiny details. Thank you!
Comment: This was such a fun atc for me to make and I hope you enjoyed making yours also. Your atc is so darling. These tiny envies are as precious as can be. Thank you soooo much Kathie for being part of our first year celebration! You mean the world to me!
Response: Sheryl, Thank you for the rating and thank you for being you!
This spring it is 3 years since we started swapping.
But the best is swapping with this group!
Comment: What a sweet little girl on this darling ATC. It will need to be on display for a while in my art room--cannot keep them all displayed, so I swap them in and out of storage to remember friends and their special ATCs.
Response: I am so glad you liked it!
Thank you lots for the rating!

so nice to hear from you!
Thank you so much for the rating!
I am glad you liked the art doll.
Comment: What a lovely atc! The wooden flower goes well with your collage. Always a pleasure to get something from you! Thanks for the 'sassy' vintage PC and for the stickers. Hope you are doing well =)
Response: Thank you so much for the ratings and also for your kind words.
I never knew it would take so long to be in action
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful ATC!! I'm sorry to hear about your fall and I hope you are feeling better now. I'll be writing you soon. Take care!!
Thanks so much for the rating!!
I still haven't been cleared to go home yet. But I see the Dr. On January 31 and maybe he will tell me. I feel terrible that I have so much mail at home and cannot get to it yet.
Do you know that you were the last swap I have had? I miss it terribly.
If you ever want to do another one please let me know!
Comment: WOW! Kathie . . . it's BEAUTIFUL! I'm just blown away. Hubby was even excited because of the bullet casing! haha . . . hope you are having an amazing holiday in Florida with your daughter. You'll be missed by us on the bot. Hurry back!
Response: I am so glad you liked my key!!!
I was one half done, and then I found out that you were my partner, so I added all the Pink!
Comment: Kathie, it brightened my day to receive your beautiful ATC and to read your sweet note! (I'm keeping the note...I'm going to re-read it on those days when I feel like nothing I do is right.) By the way, I don't think you give yourself credit for being a good artist...and you are! This lovely poinsettia ATC proves it.
Response: I am so glad you liked it! And thank you for the rating, Donetta. You are a true sweetheart.
Comment: Thanks for the pretty atc ! I like the Dresden trim and silvery background--did you make that and what is the process? You are sooo funny about the cold bathroom and toilet seat! I was dreading going pee last night because of that same reason!!! I hate cold weather too =( Already counting the days until spring!
Response: Your funny, and you understand my thought process. I want a heated toilet seat!
The silvery background is alcohol inks smooshed around with blender solution.
Thank you for the rating!!
Comment: Kathie, you are a genius! The hottie in a Santa hat, sitting on a kangaroo...on the beach! Perfect! Thanks also for the absolutely priceless vintage book page; I love it, and will use it carefully.
Response: Thank you for the rating! I am so glad you liked my "casanova on Kangaroo"!
Response: I thank you so much! I have never had a card called 'gorgeous", before. Maybe you should frame it and take a picture for me!?
When am I getting that kangaroo? I would like a female, please.
Comment: HI Kathie,Thanks for swapping with me. Thanks for a great Rhode Island ATC to add to my collection! I love the cat collage you made for me! Thanks again for a great swap! :)
Response: I am so glad you liked it! There were so many things I wanted to put on, but of course we are quite limited. Good thing it wasn't an inchie!
I appreciate the rating!
and yes, this was a fun swap!
Comment: I ADORE this one, Kathie! I'm a huge fan of vintage children's books. I have a few that I've bought on ebay and I use them often for my creations. Your apple-cheeked little boy is ADORABLE with all the blowing leaves--SUPER way to incorporate a picture with the leaf punchies! I just loved it. Thank you!! (where did you get all the different shaped leaf punchies--they're AWESOME!)
Response: Isabella cinderella,
Thank you so much for the rating! I got one leaf punch at michaels (in the $1.50 bin) and the other from Hobby Lobby. I love punches! I am so glad you enjoyed the card!
Comment: Hi Kathie!
Loved your inchies--animals are my FAVORITE theme--and I was blown away by your inchie "wallet--SOOOOO cute! I just loved it. Thank you so much and I'm "borrowing" your inchie wallet idea ;+)
Response: Isabella my friend, I am so glad you passed my inchies! with a high grade! I thought I was going to fail and get a #1.(In school that would be an F I think). Thank you so much for the rating! Of course you can steal my idea for the wallet!
Comment: Hello sweet friend!
Got your neat ATC yesterday--how creative! I began to sing the Lennon song immediately! Really inventive use of song lyrics. Your little pearls were a wonderful touch--like little stars in the galaxy. Thanks, Kathie--I loved it.
Response: My Isabella! Thank you for the rating! I am glad you like my sun and moon.. That is where I live, out in the galaxy!
Comment: Gosh Kathie, People are going to talk soon. Haha always nice to receive from you though. I think this little angel is gorgeous. Thanks so much and try to behave..ps the kangaroo is on it's way.

Thank you so much for the rating (and for the upcoming kangaroo!)
I am sure we will be in touch soon!
Comment: Goodness, golly , gosh...this is one of the most awesome swaps I have received. I LOVE it. The matchbox is gorgeous and I LOVE earrings and blue love blue...oh I am doing a happy dance..which actually looks like a happy jiggle well perhaps wobbly....Thank you Kathi 1 million hearts.
Response: I am so happy you liked it. I was worried it would get there all squished! that was a fun swap and I was happy to find out you were my partner! thanks for the.rating, Bev! kathie
Comment: A beautiful mushroom-fairy ATC, Kathie! I love the tiny deer and the whole scene. Where ever did you find the background paper with mushrooms or did you paint it yourself? It is so carefully designed and very creative!
Response: Thank you Peggy! I found the background going through my stash. One never knows when one needs something so one saves it. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Lovely Kathie. I really like what you did with this ATC. Beautiful. Thanks so much for the chatty letter but sorry you have not been 100%. Sorry your mum is not well.Be brave. I lost my mum recently and though we were not very close I can't get my head around it. The weather is warming up nicely. Cant believe it is only 10 weeks till Christmas. Take care Kat. I absolutely love being part of this special group. Hear from you soon darl..be good.
Response: I agree, I love this group. I feel like I have personal friends! Glad you enjoyed my modern art peacock! lol. Hanging in. Thanks for the kind words, and the rating, Bev!
Comment: Beautiful! Thank you so much. Thanks also for asking how I am doing since surgery...I am still having a lot of pain...Dr. Said recovery will take six.months. I must continue to have patience. Making ATCs helps me cope with the pain! I love this group we are in.
Response: Thank you for the rating, Marsha! I understand that making ATC's can take your mind off alot of things. Feel Better!
Comment: Kathie my friend, I have missed you. I am so sorry your atc was sent back to you. This same thing happened to Jackie. Go figure, nobody thinks I exist, lol. Please do write me a letter soon and I promise I will write back. Stay healthy, strong, and above all happy. Many hearts and hugs. Oh gosh....Your ATC is beautiful. How could I forget to even mention this? My poor brain. I love the blue colors you used on your ATC and the flower and hot air balloon stamp is darling.
Response: Thank you so much Sheryl. Your words are always uplifting!
Also, thank you for the rating!
Comment: Hi Kathie! I forgot to rate you for this--my apologies! I love my flamingo mobsters! haha . . . I have always been fascinated by anything having to do with the mafia. My first husband HATED it ...All they needed were little tommy guns ;+)
Response: Now Isabella, what a great idea! little tommy guns!
Thank you so much for the rating and thank you for appreciating my sense of humor!
Comment: I think your black and white poodle skirt ATC is fabulous...extremely avant garde! After looking closely at the lady with all the power, I think she might be a bit on the snobby side...or maybe she's just focused on all the buying power in her hands! Thanks for another wonderful swap, dear!
Thank you so much for the rating!
And thanks for commenting on Power girl!
Comment: Kathie, you are pretty good at the steampunk themed atc's. Did you enjoy it? When you have time, pull up steampunk jewerly on google. So many beautiful things. Thank you my friend. I will write a letter next swap that goes your way. HUGS
Response: why thank you Miss Sheryl, and thank you so much for the rating! You should see my next steampunk! the one about Halloween? I used a skull for the top of the hot air balloon with strings going down to the basket which is a pumpkin, I put wire glasses on the skull and a bling in his eye and why am I telling you this! You could be my swap giddy-up partner! today you're my queen of all ATC people.!
Kat in a hat.
Comment: Hi Kat!
I love my ATC! That was SO smart to use the little ink lines as stitches. Almost looks like fabric! Yes, I wanted to sew one, too, but I'm sticking with paper. You are always right on top of things! I can't believe how quickly you get things out. I'm always to the last minute. Anyway...great job and I'm definitely 'borrowing' the ink stitching ;+)
Response: Miss Isabella, Thank you for the words and the rating! And of course you can have my stitches!
Comment: Hi friend Kathie : ) Your letter was so sweet. I am sorry about your wrist hurting but even a typed letter from you is better than no letter. Empty nest syndrome wont last long. Pretty soon you will be runnin from room to room with glee. : ) Thank you fo the very very very lovely ATC. It's gorgeous. Thanks again for all you are and what you mean. HUGS
Response: Sheryl, you always make me feel better! Thank you so much for the rating! And for your words of confidence. take care
Comment: You are REALLY on the ball, Kathie! I've not even started mine yet. Yours is GREAT...did you create the flowers? They're lovely. And what a NEAT idea to enclose the info about orange...who knew? Orange seems like the stepchild in the color family...so many people DON'T like it. I do because it reminds me of autumn! Thanks so much for the wonderful work and of course ... I am Isabella to my CLOSEST friends!
Response: Thank you so much!!
I love orange also. In fact I always did, even when it wasn't popular!
Thanks again, Isabella
Comment: Hi Kathie!
LOVED your sweet cat girl--so cute! I know there's a name for that--when you make animals look like people--but can't think what it is. And yes, she IS beautiful but no, I don't hate her...who could hate a sweet kitty? ;+)
Response: Yes I thought she was just too adorable! Thank you again for the rating, my friend.
Comment: Hi Kathie!
LOVE your Esther Williams card. My favorite part is the little tag you created--it's such a cute mini-element. You also sent so FAST! I haven't even started mine yet ;+) I feel the same about Isabella snow. I wish I could change my name to Isabella snow! Thanks again for making something neat for me!
Response: thank you Kristy for the rating and enjoying the card! You know I always want to call you Isabella. Why? I have no idea. Then again, your sweetness is really touching.
Comment: Hi Kathie!
What a cute little sweet pea! GREAT selection for the color "spring green." Loved the little envie you made and tied with the little fiber. Really put together nicely. Thanks a bunch.
Comment: Katie - I just received your background atc and I just LOVE IT!!! I would like to try this technique but my machine can't make the fancy stitchery. Maybe I can just do a simple stitch. Thanks again! Look forward to swapping with you again. : )
Comment: Thank you, Kathie, for the lovely pink atc! I am in absolute awe of anyone who has any drawing ability. Your little girl is so sweet with her stitched dress, beaded accents and baby beagle! Beagles are near and dear to my heart (see my profile). Thanks too for the extra papers (shhhhh....it's a secret ;+)
Response: Why Thank you! I am so glad you enjoyed it! And you took the time to look at all the tiny details.
Comment: I love your name "lukeyduke"! And the cool ATC and the tidbits included - - - I do love small things! I also loved the note you included with the swap. I feel I know you better for it. :-) I hope you enjoyed your grandson's graduation ceremony <3

Response: Thank you so much for the rating! I am very happy you liked the card!!
Comment: Thank you for the great ATC and very thoughtful extras!!! Teaching high school English = me wanting to poke my eyes out a good portion of the day!! :) But, I love it! :)
Response: Well somebody has to love it! So I guess God made you the brave English teacher!
Don't poke your eyes out, it could be worse. You could be working for the sanitation department! Thank you for the rating! Kathie
Comment: Thank you so much Kathie for a wonderful Zeppelin ATC!!! I came out really beautiful!! I love them and listen to them all the time. This music really is the best of all times, best era ever for music :)

Response: thank you very much for the rating!
it is very hard to get a blank page" head". I get it all the time so
i just work on making a crazy background first. Again, thanks and good luck!
Comment: Thanks for your lovely ATC, it was hard to think of a way to do this ATC. our weather is cold as in 15 degrees today and it was 6 degree overnight. If you have your health all is right with the world
Response: Thanks so much for the rating! 15 degree weather!!! AHHH how can you stand it!
Comment: This is a super nice atc. It is neat how you put sparkle hearts on the ribbon. I LOVED the little considerate atc makins' extras, that you added, and I thank you for those. PS I do not think mice are so cute when they make their way into houses on rare occasion. I have even been spotted screaming on a chair over an intrusive little critter. haha
Response: I am so glad you liked the card, mouse girl, Thank you so much for the rating!
Comment: Many hugs sent your way. I always love hearing from you and miss you too!!!! Your ATC is stunning, you create nothing less than beautiful!

Comment: I can't wait to see all the butterflies at that website. Thank you for the lovely note, thank you for the butterflies they sound very precious and thank your wonderful son... You must be very proud of him... This was a remarkable project
Comment: Thanks for the adorable ATC, and all the great extras! I know what you mean about multi-tasking -- I will be doing it again in about 2 weeks! Out daughter-in-law will be going back to work from maternity leave, and we will be keeping our newest granddaughter until mid-August when her day-care slot opens up. She is a little doll, and pretty mellow for an infant, so I know we will enjoy having her, but I am glad this time it will only be for a couple of months. I am simply getting too old to keep up for extended periods -- oour oldest grandchild will graduate from college next May! Thanks again, and happy swapping!
Response: The best of luck to you, Gabrielle. And the best of strength, the best of patience and the best of living on no sleep!!!
Seriously, Enjoy!! It goes by too fast!
Thank you for your rating. Kathie

Response: Miss you too' Cheryl! I am glad you liked your stuff!! I was so happy when I received your name! God Bless! Kathie
Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful package!! I love the ATC, the card, the mini envelope, the extras - everything is wonderful. It's been raining off and on this month and pretty windy, but today is a gorgeous day in Los Angeles. I've never been to Rancho Stanta Margarita (my name in Spanish) but I looked it up and it's in Orange Co.. It looks like a really nice, new community - I'm sure your daughter & her family love it there. I've never stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Blvd. but I've been there for parties and banquets. You ddin't see Marilyn Monroe swimming in the pool or here Montgomery Ciff practicing his trumpet??? Thanks again, Marjorie
Response: Marjorie, Thank you so much for your rating!!
Actually no, I didn't see Marylin Monroe but I did see Larry Davis from "curb your enthusiasm". Yes my daughter is in Dove Canyon which is in Santa Margareta, which is in Orange county, which is in California. Too confusing!!
Comment: Thank you very much for all of the lovely extra's!!! And your ATCs are NOT hideous, they are amazing! Your ideas are unique and its how you imagined it! Thats why I love ATCs so much because everyone's interpretations are all different!
Response: thank you so much! I needed to hear that!!
Comment: Thanks so much for the ATC and awesome extras! I've never seen a sewn ATC done quite like that. And yes, I like the sun, too. =0)
Do you feel better with the thyroid meds or is it just the numbers? That's been a big problem for me. I guess T3 doesn't really show on tests. I'm trying some new meds, so hopefully they help. Be sure to have a doctor that will look at the whole picture. It makes a big difference.
Response: Hi and thanks so much for the compliment on my card! I di feel better on the meds, but then I don't know how long its been going on and is there something else I am missing myself./
Comment: Oh my god! When I received your envelope, I really thought this can't be just for an ATC swap - it was that much!!! And your ATC itself looks just so cute and nice, thanks a lot! Would give you 10 hearts if I just could .. you'd really deserve it! :)
Response: Thank you soooo much! I am glad you liked it!
Comment: It's really great! I love it! And good quote! :) That notecard is really special, too. Did you make it? It's gorgeous, so great job if you did! you got some serious card-making skills! I almost forgot to mention the envelope! It is perfect and great! You DREW on it!!!!!! That made me sooo happy! I can't even tell you. The. Best. The envelope might be my favorite part which is saying a lot because everything was so great! It is a pleasure to swap with you, too. Truly. <3
Response: You are the kind of person that makes me so happy to be swapping! You appreciate things and that is so special. I thank you so much! Yes when a have more than a whole minute in the day, I like to make my cards for my partners, and again a big THANK YOU. Kathie
Comment: Thank you, what a great Atc! Also thanks for all of the AWESOME extras, I love them. :D Yes I love the Rolling Stones. We have other things in common I have family in New England (THe Cape and Connecticut) and I am from California. ;)
Response: I am so glad you liked the creepy card! Thank you. And I also have relatives at the cape! Wow I'll be in Ca in a few weeks.
Thanks again Kathie
Comment: WOW! I am totally in love with the tin-man greeting card, and I really like your ATC (it is magnificently creepy!) but I want to send an extra special thank you for your letter!!! Your swap has made my day! <3 <3 <3 Ainslie
Response: I am glad you appreciated the ATC and the card!
Comment: WOW! I love it! It is so nice to get an ATC that is definitely "Art". The collaged card was such a nice surprise. I have it up on my "art inspiration" wall :-) PS: Sorry it took me a while to rate, I was out of town for a bit.
Response: I am so happy that you liked it!
Thank you for the kind words!
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful ATC, i love Picasso's style. But what is funny is that in my art class most of the cubism i see isnt collaged its all paint. But anyway your ATC was wonderful :) and thank you for the cute owl stickers!!
Response: I am so glad you like the ATC! I like Picasso also! My favorite of all time is Van Gogh. Kathie
Comment: You are like a bear riding a unicycle while juggling chainsaws - AWESOME! Thank you so much for your lovely package. I shall use the beautiful discs as part of another art project. A-thank-you!
Comment: Hi Kathie...I received your great package. I loved everything, especially the fabric ATC. Your letter was interesting....a couple of our kids live in Coral Springs. In fact that is where we spent Thanksgiving...Have great holidays, Sheryl
Response: I am glad you liked the card, Sheryl. What a small world!! You spent thanksgiving in Coral Springs! I will have to tell my daughter. She still misses it terribly! The lived in Pine Court off Riverside Dr. Its so gorgeous there!
Have a great Christmas!
Comment: Love the stickers and happy birthday. Copics are awesome. You might have to jog my memory on the stamping book. What did I say.
Response: Thanks. The book you were saying was about using a rubber stamp for a part of a picture or whatever, and then you extend the rest of the picture by hand?
I guess one or both of us were dreaming. Of COPIC markers.
Comment: Once again, all your ATC's have a lot of thought put into them. Love the 2D raised look going on- on the card, thank you for the letter and extras. I do hope you join some of my other swaps. :)
Response: So glad you liked it! I love your swaps!
Comment: GeORgeOUs!!!! Love your ATC. I love your new OK more though. Ha ha ha ....this must have been made with your homemade paper? It is all so gorgeous. Thank you for the pup stickers and great note. You always keep me smiling!! Hugs!!! :-)

Kat Sinatra, (with her vagabond shoes going to N.Y.)
Comment: How could I not give a heart for such a beautiful card? Wanna give tons of hearts. Your card is on my mantle to enjoy. I cannot get over the gorgeous leaves you scanned. Aww love fall!!

Comment: Well, just when I was getting a little cynical, along came your beautiful ATC! I love how different it is, with the embroidery and frayed edges. I love the birds, and the cheerful blooming tree. Thanks so much for making me something from the heart ( and also for including the extras). Say hi to RI for me-we used to live in N. Attleboro)!
Response: thank you so much for you kind words. That was my first try using the fabrics instead of paper and it was fun! Kathie
Comment: Kathie, thank you for being such a generous swap partner! I love what you sent for me, and now my challenge is to make something you will love from the bright and beautiful things you sent for that purpose. Keep an eye on your mailbox...it's on the way!
Comment: Thank you for the adorable atc and stuff. I especially liked the asian themed peacock card, its just beautiful :) I also had a dog named Luke, ironically I was dating a man named Luke for 4 years, we got the dog (already named by previous owner) and my human Luke wanted to change the dogs name and I wouldnt let him HAHAHAHAHA Ohhh its so funny... 7 years later he still has to explain to his friends why he and his dog have the same name!! :oP
Response: Lets hear it for all the Lukes!!
