Comment: Dinah, I hope I am rating you on the right swap as you did not put it down. Loved your homemade Christmas card. It looks like a lot of work. I was only going to rate you a 5 because it took me a long time to find the swap, but the card is so lovely I am also giving you a heart also. Shirley

Comment: Wow! what an amazing ATC and handmade card! I love them so much! Thank you <3 I especially like how you used real Arizona sand on the ATC :)
Response: You are very welcome! I had a lot of fun making these, I am obsessed with cactus lately...the sand looked a little weird/shiny with the sealant on top, but I didn't want it to come off and have sand inside your envelope!

Comment: I love, love, love your Atc. Thank you so much!!! I love the card too. What a great swap!! I wish I could give you more than one heart. I too have thought about how Lincoln would feel about how admired he still is after 150 years. It is so amazing. I also wonder how it would have been, had he lived. He was supposedly sick, so I wonder how long he would have lived, had he died naturally. I have always been fascinated with Lincoln and History. Thank you for doing this swap with me and you will be getting yours shortly. I hope you like yours as much as I like mine.
Response: Thank you so much for the generous rating! I was excited to try that mobile idea. He was a fascinating person, and I still have so much more to learn about him!

Comment: Love this! Not only do I like the all black theme, but I also love the 80s feel it has. One of my new faves!
Response: Yay, so glad you liked it! It does have an 80s vibe - didn't notice that at first, but I can see it.

Comment: Dinah, I am a hoosier too! Your Lincoln atc is great. I really really like it.I appreciate the bits you added about Abe but I also appreciate the artistic touches such as the repeat of the copper circle. Way to go! I agree Lincoln is really a facinating man on a personal level. I think his wife Mary Todd was kind of kookoo with her occult interest but it just adds another dimension to them as a couple... my husband might say i have been brain washed by the art commune-ity... and that my following the call of Tim Holtz might be a bit cult like affection lol. Yet he loves me greatly. Really really liked your work thank you! <3<3 <3
Response: Thank you so much for the kind rating and words! So glad you liked it - I had a lot of fun making it for you!

Comment: This seap did not meet the swap description and the hostess agreed. I advised her and she acknowledged it but decided to not resend despite my leaving that avenue open to avoid a three.

Hey there! I thought you might be interested in this new group for experienced ATC swappers. You need to post some of your work online in order to get in but I have one of your ATCs and really like it, so it would be great to have you in if you're interested!
