Comment: Thank you for the Royal Botanical Garden Orchid postcard! I wish I had gotten the chance to visit while I was in Edinburgh last year, but I was so focused on the Fringe Festival that I didn't do much of anything else.😆
Comment: Hi Wendy - Thanks so much for the ATCs. So sorry that you had to re-send!! I haven't opened the envelope yet but I wanted to rush in and rate since you have been waiting so long. Thank you for being such a great swap partner! Take Care -Vanne
Comment: Thank you Wendy. I love your quote. I'm trying to pass a certification test. I failed once already and I'm getting ready to take it again. Your quote hit close to home. I won't stop until I'm proud. Thank you so much

Comment: Hi Wendy . . . WOW . . . your ornament is really gorgeous! I love the glittery finish and all the layers. How did you know I love pink for Christmas? Beautiful pink tree! Thank you so much; this beauty will grace my tree for years to come.
Response: I am so glad you Love the pink Christmas theme!!! Merry Christmas
Comment: Thank you for you card. Where did you get these? I absolutely love this one. It reminds me of growing up in my childhood home where everything was so sweet. Nostalgia does a heart good, right!
Response: Vintage is one of my favorites. Found those at Tuesday Morning!!
Comment: Wendy, I’m so very sorry, I forgot to rate you for this swap. Please forgive me.
This is such a very pretty card thank you so very much. I really love what you have done
Once again I’m sorry for the late rating ❤️
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful card! I love the layers and the pretty birds, and how two corners are rounded and two not. Makes it look extra fancy! Thanks for the small stuff, too, will be good to use on ATCs!
Comment: Funny how a simple quote can change a person in a moment. My Bestest friend is 32 and going through her 4th battle with cancer. She has been considered terminal twice and cleared about 6 months ago. She walked over and grabbed my mail on the way in and was crying when she walked in. I new she was giving me bad news again, her husband prepped me to prepare my emotions and such. She had your postcard and it read me the quote “You were born into this life because you are strong enough to live it”. I hugged her and she told me she can’t believe how much money people spend on postage (still always laughing and joking) She said now it makes sense. I needed to hear that and it was right in your mail. 😍. So after we joked about her committing a federal offense by reading my mail, she found great comfort in your postcard and has borrowed it. She wanted to share with her husband and journal about it. So I don’t have the right words to say but thank you. The cancer has spread to the point that we can only search for clinically studies at this point. She has been my neighbor and the closest genuine friend I have ever had. It just shows how important to not only the swapping community is to build ourselves up, but to be able to share with others around us as well. 💕💕💕
Comment: Whooooo made this gorgeous ATC? YOU DID! Wendy, it's really pretty. LOVE that pumpkin, the owl with the little jeweled eyes, and the glitter. REALLY special. Thanks so much for creating it for me.
Response: Thanks so much!!! It feels good to be unpacked and able to create again. I missed it so much.
Comment: WOW, just WOW. Can't even express how I love this ATC as Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and the ATC is amazing, thank you as well for the cut outs and I love the card I am going to re-purpose pieces of it. I really like the envelope you put the ATC in. Thanks for a great swap!!!

Comment: Hi Wendy! So glad to hear you are settled after your move; moving is traumatic! I LOVE your ATC. It's put together so nicely and your ladybug image is perfect (also love that train postcard on the bottom). Thank you for sending it along in that sweet little bunny card!
Response: youre so welcome it was nice to get back to creating Atcs again
Comment: Wow, you are very accomplished! I can't even count the number of times I've moved and I think I still have 1 or 2 boxes that have never been opened since the first move! Hopefully, by the time you read this, the last 5 boxes will be done! Thank you!
Comment: I hate moving. I hate it but have done it more than 20 something times and have actually gotten good at what goes in what box and whatnot. I also know off top of my head how many boxes we need to move. Lol. Wa to NM is def a different climate. Lol. Take care thanks for the pc

Comment: Thank you for the nice and weighty vintage-style Kwak chipboard card (I know the car is earlier than the 1920s, but it called to mind a rewritten lyric from the title song of Thoroughly Modern Millie: "In a rumble seat, the world is oh-so-cozy"), wonderful Voltaire quote, and adorable little penguin sticker, Wendy! â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC :)!I couldnÂ´t quite clearly find the bookpage on it, but I love it anyway and it has so many beautiful details and shades of blue which is one of my favourite colours. Love the machine stitching too. Thanks also for the Graphic45-bits and pieces, they are always lovely to get.
Response: I sorta counted the heart as book pagesish, like from a ledger, still glad you loved it.
Comment: You have the best, most adorable owl stickers :D Thank you also for the exciting view of Montmartre, blurred colored lights and all, by one of my favorite artists, and the very true, sage quote. Happy Wednesday! <3
Comment: Hi Wendy! Thank you for the beautiful card and the most perfect quote. I was excited to see your postmark. I grew up in the Suquamish/Poulsbo area. I miss the PNW so much and hate to miss another beautiful fall there.
Response: Oh, its been the best fall ever...was warm and sunny til mid October...just started raining reacently...and the colors are bright this year.

Comment: Thank you for the vibrant Van Gogh card -- I feel like I can just touch the textured paint, and as a paper lover, I appreciate the thickness/weight of Taschen's card :) -- cheerful stickers, and wonderful quote (something I always reflect upon near my birthday if I am being self-deprecating). Hope you have a good weekend!

Comment: Thank you for the great New Yorker card (what a relaxing view!), cute bespectacled owl sticker, and To Kill a Mockingbird (one of my favorite novels; Atticus is also one of my favorite literary characters) quote. Happy Sunday!
Comment: Hi Wendy! Loved the vanity fair postcard and the wonderful quote that you wrote on back! Speaks to my heart and what i have opened to seeing doing the work that i have done to wake up from the dream. That as long as we have conditioning that is not examined we see things as we are and not really see what is there! Ouch! A great place to begin to crack the ego! Thanks for the reminder! LOVE both sides of this pc!
Comment: Wendy, I can't even tell you how much I love this ATC...it's given me an entirely new idea for a "heart" theme! I love and adore Asian themes, and this one is perfection. I just love having you as a swap partner!
Comment: Thanks for the goodies, however, I looked for a note with the swap name and your name, and didn't find one. I guessed that it was the EJ destash, and grabbed the envie back from the abyss. lol. Thanks again.
Response: I'm so sorry..I usually will write on the envelope also...I must have spaced
Comment: Thank you so much for the resend of this swap. You sent such an abundance and variety! I especially enjoy all the different tickets, the great Powell's sticker, rooster image, gorgeous Colorado bookmark and Humboldt House business card!
Response: I love to collect..which makes sharing easy...had a hard time keeping the package from becoming a box..lol
Comment: got your cute ATC today.....so sorry you had to make it twice.....I have had to do the same a couple of times, never did know what happened to them! Anyway, it is nice and thanks for the little G45 embellishments...they will find themselves on other G45 projects!
Comment: Hey Wendy! I just love the pin up you sent. Although I grew up within 5 miles of several beaches....I have never really been a beach person. But for some reason I just love beach themed ATCs. And when you combine that with a pin up...well, that's even better! Love the card you sent! Till next time...
Response: I'm so glad u like it..I always try to match up with something on a partners profile...and we'll I guess i found something new!!!

Response: I'm so glad u liked it...I just love those old fashion dolls
Comment: We have similar resolutions! I am actually following the 40 Bags in 40 Days thing for the Lenten Season. I am cleaning out one area of my house, per day, for the 40 days of Lent. So far, I have done my bathroom linen closet, the bottom of my stairs and the tupperware cupboard. I think the laundry room is on tomorrow's agenda! Good luck with de-junking your house. Remember, if you haven't touched it in a year, say good bye!
Response: So true...I wish I could just push it all to the curb!!!
Comment: Wendy, your work is simply gorgeous, beautiful, fantastic, and every other amazing descriptor! I just love the theme--it is so "put together"--it looks like I bought it at a high end boutique in San Francisco! Such a lovely color scheme and the images are so pleasing. Stunning work!
Response: I'm so glad u love it...I got more out of creating it..I'm glad I took my time with it...have a wonderful holiday
Comment: I love the pretty Umbrella ATC you created for me and the awesome extras. And I love the colors you used and especially the sparkly jeweled trim. I do have one question. Where did you get the Artist Trading Card Stamp? I really like it.
Response: I bought that many years ago at my local scrapbook store which has long gone out of business...I bet u might be able to find it online with a little work..the stamp doesn't have a brand name...which would have helped u more...sorry I couldn't have been more helpful
Comment: I've heard of this book, it's a populair one here too. My library doesn't have it yet and I wasn't going to spend money on something I probably don't use ðŸ˜€
Congrats with your new granddaughter! Way more important than decluttering. You did some, this swap was succesfull ðŸ˜€
Comment: Hi Wendy...thank you for the adorable pin-up ATC. You know I love pin-up ATCs and this one will make a nice addition to my collection. Also, thank you for the little bag of goodies you included. Can never have too many. Thanks again for everything and have a great holiday season.

Response: Sent u a message as to where to get those cutouts..happy swapping
Comment: Wendy--what a lovely altered key! I love the colors and the wrapping it with paper and decorating that. I've not seen one done quite like that, so I am going to remember it. Thanks for the extras as well--much appreciated! Thanks for joining the swap--I look forward to seeing you in the next ones, too!
Comment: The mermaid ATC is so lovely! And the envelope it is in and the book page and ribbon are wonderful! Thanks so much!
Response: I really loved making this mermaid..teal is one of my fav colors so naturally I gravitate towards it...I love the cards and envies too...when I saw them couldn't help buy them even though I have plenty already...lol...maybe u could create a beautiful tag out of it.
Comment: Hi Wendy! I just adore your add-a-corset ATC! You found the prettiest corset I've ever seen and I love the pink rhinestone embellishments. I have almost bought those sequin "ribbons" many times but wasn't sure I would know how to use them--now I know! Thank you also for the book page and extra ribbon--such a treat.
Response: I'm so glad u have inspiration for new products..it's always fun to try new things
Comment: Thank you for the cards. And for including some butterfly ones.
Response: I usually read a partners profile before I send..makes it more fun and personal to send some thing they lIke if u can...my favorite animal is an okapi(looks like part giraffe horse zebra)...guess I like unusual animals too
Comment: Thanks for the re-send--sorry you had to send twice! Sometimes you really wonder what goes on with the postal system! Anyways, thanks for the ATC and the extra--they are both lovely and will be great additions to my flower collection.
Comment: Oh. My. Gosh!!!! I am blown away. Thus is one of the coolest swaps I have ever received! Thank you sooooooooooooo much for reading my profile and creating something just for me. I LOVE how you did the background. The colors and techniques are gorgeous. And all the Blythe atcs! Squeeeeeeeeee! I can't stop looking at all of them. I also love the extras and will use the in my art. I absolutely love what you created for me and feel very lucky to have had you for a partner. Thank you thank you thank you!
Response: It was so much fun working out side my box...I actually love those little dolls now too...
Comment: I liked my cards overall, they were good quality. I will pass on the Native Amer, and Halloween one cause they dont fit my collection, but they are still nice cards. Thanks for being a super swapper and for the goodies.
Comment: Hi, I'm a bit unsure what to rate and if this card (it had kids playing baseball) was even from you since it had no name or the name of the swap, which are kinda important info, at least your name/Swap-Bot name.
Comment: I can understand why this one was hard to part with...it's a great ATC :-) The image is one I'm familiar with. I read that one of the girls is actually dead in the picture. Not sure if it's true or not but I'm thrilled to have it in my collection. Thank you so much :-)!
Comment: Thank you so much. It's quite pretty. I would have given you a heart but for the large empty space with adhesive on it. I finally figured out that the bird was not an extra but was supposed to be stuck there. Maybe use a dimensional glossy adhesive like Crystal Effects or Glossy accents or even staples or brads next time.
Comment: Thank you Wendy for the awesome postcard view of the Grand Tetons National Park! Beautiful reflections of the mountains in the water. Last weekend of March was unusual, the last cold weather front of the season with cooler days, cold nights. Felt great for me. April will warm up & feel like middle of summer here in FL. Happy April!
