Heart Ratings

I give them out based on how much effort you put into a swap, but also would gladly give you one if you included small broken pieces of stained glass, sea glass, old broken tile pieces, or old broken dish pieces for my mosaics. I am really wanting to put one together right now, but I am having a hard time finding unique colors for the piece I want to do. Would love shades of blue, teal, aqua, purples, yellows, reds, and pinks!

Comment: Thanks so much Shannon for the awesome Led Zeppelin ATC. It really came out cool and I love the writing with your card to match. It does look hard!! Thank you so much for joining the swap. One of my first swaps on Swap-Bot was for a Led Zeppelin ATC and I almost have a whole page filled after all this time. I can't wait to add yours, lol... Take Care -Vanne
Response: Sorry for the late response, but I am super glad you like the ATC. Thank you for the heart and for hosting!

Comment: Thanks for this beautiful Heart ATC! I love the layering and the textures and that it was in it's own little envie! Alas, we have no snow except on the very highest mountain tops and our temps have been in the high 30's. You definitely need to come to Alaska. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: So glad you like the ATC. Yep, I think I'd rather be in Alaska than Michigan right now. Our storn dumped about a foot of snow on us and left us with negative temps. Yuck! lol Thanks for the heart.
