Comment: Hi, Jen! This has arrived; a bit late because you had my house number inverted. Please remember to put a hole in the next one (though that's an easy fix; in fact, I can choose which side will be the front - mmm, I wonder if that would be something everyone would like to choose). Thanks for looking at my profile; vintage, red and horses!
Response: I intentionally left it without the hole, so you could choose πŸ™‚ also, I thought some people might like the holes in a corner πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Comment: Jen, your artwork is amazing. You took so much time to give me a beautiful envelope and two great atcs. I love them both. I also like to collage using magazines and catalogs. I just took a class in gelli plate printing so I understand your red background. I so hope we swap again!

Comment: Tysm it wonderful! ❀️
Comment: The artistry that went into every inch of this swap is incredible. My MIL is over, and we spent a long time oohh-ing and ahhhh-ing over the envelope before I even opened it. The art you drew on your note is gorgeous and has such fun colors and texture, and that ATC! The ATC is the type of art that I would proudly buy and display in my home β™₯ I'm just in awe! Thank you so much for creating this art for me!

colodad rated for EASU: Free Theme ATC Swap on May 31, 2022
Comment: Your envelope was like hitting the jack pot, From the postage stamp, to the image, the washi tape you used, the anticipation for what was inside was set high. Then the two swaps, each with double ATCs was so fun. I love both green ATCs Great quote and layout on the first. the second with the outlined rectangles is very cool. I see something new each time I look at it. Thanks for sharing your art with me.
colodad rated for EASU: A Touch of Gold ATC on May 31, 2022
Comment: Great ATCs. So nice to get your extra as well. I love the color and texture of the red one. And, the background stripes on the floral ATC. I am glad you are able to find enough time to create, even if it can't be all day!!
