Comment: Karen, thanks very much for the multiview card showing examples of your photographic art. I like the mood created by your pieces, all rather haunting and lonely in feel. I enjoy pieces that capture that kind of mood. I also like your narrative on the back in which you describe your process and thoughts about your work. Very nice! Regards, Cynthia
Response: Thank you for the kind words, Cynthia! That one was a leftover PC from my 2011 shows. They've been sitting around and I was so happy to be able to use them for this swap! :)
Comment: Thank you for sharing your beautiful butterfly picture! It is gorgeous....and I do not know what kind it is, but I am trying to look it up in my butterfly books! Thanks again and until next time, best wishes.
Comment: Hey Karen - Wow! I am thrilled to receive your artistic photos. My husband and I had a great time opening your packet....both photos are wonderfully creative...I loved the addt'l paper...and he was like a little boy when I told him the truck magnet was for him...that was great! Even your notecard is really cool. I am working to mail my swap today - and my "altering" talent isn't nearly as good as yours!! Hopefully you will like what I am sending ya :) Beth
Comment: Thank you for the awesome pictures!
The statue is very unique and I love - love - love the elephant.
The picture of the angel is beautiful. I am going to frame her and put it in my guest room as it is decorated with my angels.
Thank you :)

Comment: Hi animalchatter, it was great to receive from you again. I love the postcard and thanks for telling me how it was done. It took me back a few years to primary school when we used to cover paper with as many colours of crayons as possible leaving no gaps then covering the whole lote in black and the scratching the black away to make the pattern. Hugs :-)
Comment: Hello fellow Vegan! =^_^=
I can't even begin to say how gorgeous this ATC is! The most beautiful I have ever recieved!
and on top of that! Extras
<3 well deserved
AMAZING! (is an understatement!)
Response: Oh, thanks Snaxy...that is so sweet of you! :)
Comment: Hi...The 2 ATC's you sent me was held up by Australian Quarantine because they're decorated with fresh plant materials. I received the 3rd one "eye on the world." Not holding this against you. Thank you, anyway.
Response: Wow! I had no idea...good to know. I guess I will not decorate my international envelopes in the future!
Comment: Hello Karen,
Well, your cards just had to make a short trip down from Santa Fe. This is our first time to meet, but I certainly hope we have further opportunities to swap. I really loved your 3 green photos for this swap and what has been so fascinating is that I am not getting any repeats in these close-up ATCs. You had very unique ones that I will proudly add to my ever-growing ATC collection and to my specific green ATC collection. Until we have another opportunity to swap--continued Happy Swapping.
P.S. I really loved the card you enclosed your ATCs in. The illustration on front was wonderful. I like your swap card as well--especially the space you put on it for writing a short note.
Comment: I recieved them and Thank You - they finally arrived Thank You so much I got the pins and they are lovely! BIG HUGS! You get a heart and a BIG HUG!!
Response: Oh dear, I wished you would have emailed me...I mailed that out on 5/7, but what really bugs me isn't the 1 rating, but that I included a special Snowman and a Santa pin for your collection and I have no way to replace them. :( I will send you another set of ATC's on Monday! Karen
