Comment: Thank you! It was so sweet of you to send me the cross stitch gift, it's darling! Thanks also for the thread cards, those always come in handy. Thanks for your patience with my rating. And I really will get started on the samplers call home very soon and then we'll see where to go next with this project!
Comment: Thanks so much for this great card. I love your painting. I am never game enough to use paints as I think I will not do a good job so I always use coloured pencils. Thanks also for the bookmark. elflady
Response: Your welcome! I taught myself watercolor four years ago and still learning more today. Doesn't hurt to try. :)
Comment: Thank you! What a cute doggy!! Thanks also for the dog toy, Goliath has happily run around the living room with it :) it was sweet if you to think of him, I appreciate it! Thanks also for the chocolates for me yum! Thanks for joining!
Comment: Despite it's strange route-WA, OR, Peurto Rico, then finally back CO it made it through w/o a scratch ðŸ˜Š Nice bright fish addition! Thanks for the pretty stickers :) edit-my ðŸ’“ didn't stick first time around! Or I could have clicked the box twice on my phone by accident.
Response: I am so glad it arrived safely. Odd that it went to Peurto Rico, but that has happened before on another package. Maybe it wanted to take a detour to see the fishies there. lol :)
Comment: Thank you thank you! I love the upclose rooster head! The design of it and the style of the writing ðŸ“ I don't know yet how I will display it, I'm always slow on that part. I keep saying I'll make a patchwork kind of pillow cover with all the cross stitches I received, but I haven't yet. Or it looks like it might fit on a 5*7 frame, I probably have one then I can hang it in my kitchen. I'll let you know!
Comment: What a sweet ATC! i love it! its going on my inspiration board! Thank you! I hope you dont mind, i may photocopy it and make swap cards of the image, lol. Ill def give you credit as the artist! Thanks again this is JUST my style!
Response: You're very welcome! I'm so glad you love it. The swap cards are a great idea. Be inspired and have fun! :)
Comment: Hi Mary Jane, Your wonderful doggie ATC arrived today - it's such a sweet face on this puppy! And that you painted this yourself is pretty special - I'm great at cutting and pasting but when it comes to drawing or painting on my own, I'm terrible. So I always admire any work that someone creates with their own talent and imagination. So thank you! Cheers! Laurie
Response: You're very welcome. I'm so glad this little puppy arrived safely and that it's well loved. :)
Comment: The zentangled flowers are beautiful! What a lovely addition. I love the ffont for the numbers, too, how long the 4 is, it is funky! :) and Blue and black are always pretty together, imo. I've really enjoyed this series and all the beautiful ATCS you made me, thank you so much for taking the journey with me!
Response: You're very welcome. I am so glad you liked this set. Thank for all the wonderful cards in this series. :)
Comment: Thank you! I love the dandelion wish theme and the trees are cute :) I love dandelion images! I love that you sent in a vintage current card! Current brand was always my first stationery as a kid, we used to have an outlet here nearby. There is still one about 2 hrs away I keep meaning to go to.
Response: You're very welcome. I'm so glad you like the dandelion. I found those cute Current cards at a local thrift shop that closed down recently. Lucky find. :)
Comment: Thank you for the purple 2&7. I love the tye-dyed aida, how creative! Did you do a big piece for a particular stitchery way back when? The little butterflies are. So dainty and the postage stamp a lovely addition, too. Thanks again for the pretty cards! See you in the next round!
Hazel-thank you so much for the giraffe and girl in the bright sun! Thanks also for choosing to use postage with chickens and roosters for me, I love chickens and roosters. Last year the wall calendar in my kitchen was chickens and roosters.
Comment: Thank you for the creepy cute hippy pumpkin monster :) It loved it & your zentangling is so good. I love how bright & colorful it is too. Thank you for joining my swap & again for the great ATC!
Response: I am so glad you like it and thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you! They're both so pretty! I love the slightly multicolored buttons on the zero and the little lady bug addition to number 9, and the rose! Did you turn the ribbon into the rose, it is super cool.
Response: I am so glad you like them. They were fun to make. :) I bought the rose that way about 20 years ago. I have a stash of stuff like that. I believe that rose was the last one in my tin.
Comment: Mary, thanks for the wonderful assortment of ATCs! I found several cards that I'm happy to add to my collection. Your packaging is so pretty, living up to the "purple" designation in your user name. Quite lovely happy mail!
Comment: So glad to meet a fellow jalapeno lover! They are definitely a big part of any pizza I order; you HAVE to try them with anchovies and pepperoni and kalamata olives if you haven't given that a try! Thanks for participating in the swap!
Comment: â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸. This is absolutely the cutest owl that I've ever seen and I love it! You are an incredible artist and I am ever so lucky to be the proud owner of one of your creations. Just the sweetest leetle feetsies on my baby owl! Thank you so very much!
Response: â¤ï¸ You're so welcome... I am so glad you love my work. It means so much to me. It was so hard to part with it, but I know I can create one for myself. â¤ï¸
Comment: Hi there Mary! Your package arrived safe and sound yesterday evening :) Thanks so much for the little goodie for me! :) I am excited to try this "Primitive" style of stitching! :) Have a great day!
Comment: Hey Mary! The Sampler arrived safe and sound! I can't wait to research some different sewing themed patterns to put onto it! :) Thanks so much also for the aida! I will never be without it ever again lol...Michaels was clearing out their specialty ones and I almost bought them out.... LOL
Response: LOL.... I love Micheal's when they are clearing out on some fun stuff. :)
Comment: Thank you so much for such a beautiful ATC, I have to say it is much better than mine. I have just started watercolor and I love the technique, but it is more difficult than it appears. Thanks again I love it!
Response: I am so glad you like it. You are right... it is more difficult than it appears.
Comment: I can't wait to add to this. I've started keeping a journal on the new samplers I get so I can trace them if lost. I can only do it if I know when it started. I'm excited. Thanks for the aceo, so pretty and such talent.
Response: Thanks... I can't wait to see your addition and everyone else's. :)
Comment: I'm good at feeling packages (I have spent hours in stores) so I can tell without opening tha it's the space guy (I think his official name is "Galaxy Trooper"). I've already got one of him, and I don't do much space building, so I might just keep him in the bag for a future swap. Thanks for sending!
Comment: That was so sweet of you to send me the extra book! You didn't have to do that :-) I wonder if you could still find the cross-stitch fingertip towels with Christmas designs printed...hmm..something to check ebay for next time I allow myself back on to buy stuff. And the tiny stocking ornaments are darling
Comment: Mary, thank you so much for the wonderful birthday surprises and card!! I love the bookmarks and the little owl is really cute!! The notecards will be fun to "bling out" and send!! Happy Birthday to you too in a couple days!!
Comment: I did the same thing! only using different weights of paper..yours were exquisite...just perfect...I have a scoring board to but I need to figure out how to use it for atc cards...I liked the other style of envelope you used..thanks so much...I will use them but hate to lose them! great swap...
Comment: I love all the images and the themes are all my favorite! I especially loved the butterflies and the butterfly postage stamps. They are all so lovely. You did a great job and images are crisp and clear too. Thanks for joining my first swap!
Comment: I didnt got anything but admin want to change it
Response: I sent her a swap-bot message with my url on July 5th,which was allowed in the swap, and she read that message. In a separate message that was sent to me, she admitted to recieving my url for the swap and said she it was not an email message. I have proof.
Comment: THANK YOU so much! I'm so thrilled at how the sampler turned out! My boys appreciate the stickers very much, and I really appreciate the extra cross-stitching goodies! Thanks again! Hugs to you!
Comment: Thank you so much for the smiles! You brightened my day. :) The crowns spilled out, they are so sparly, so easy to find on my carpet, lol. And just what I needed today was a note card, thank you so much for the cards, the tags, the note and the crowns!
Comment: Thank you for the cute ATC, I almost did not get it as my grandson was going to take it, then he decided it was too girly for him. (he will be 11 in 6 days) So I am making him one with a more manly cat pic and no flowers LOL Thank you so much for making my day.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely kitchen towels, the pretty fabrics and stickers, the sweeties, and nice card ! it's great ! :D

Comment: Mary, Thanks so much for your card and the goodies. Very thoughtful of you and I want you to know that I put a couple things to use right away as I am in a couple of atc swaps. Hope you have a happy birthday!
Comment: I absolutely love these cards! I love the shadowbox-esque (is that a phrase?) frame around the 13, and the paper doll card...I love it so much! No wonder your little girl wanted it so bad! That is so cute! Thank you so much!
Response: You're very welcome. I had fun creating them.
