I will never forget the time I got to see them running in the open fields during a childhood road-trip through Montana. I yelled “tatanka” with my head out the window and felt like I was flying as free as they were meant to be!!! Ah! Highlights!!!
Thanks for sparking that one! 😉
Comment: I love all 4 of these adorable ATCs! I really like the sparkly stuff...it doesn't seem to be glitter, but what can it be? I don't think I've ever seen it before, and now I feel I must get some! Thank you for the many lovely ATCs you sent, Donna!

It came together so beautifully, which is the whole point of the 3 elements swaps...to make a lovely, cohesive work of art that you would never know included 3 mandatory items.

Comment: Donna, I received the wonderful package today with the rocks you painted! I love the expression on the turkey's face! And I was absolutely tickled pink that you included one with Sophie the Pug on it! How funny that your son has a black Sophie too! I wish I knew how to put pictures with my messages; I'd post a pic our our Sophie for you to see. I wonder how much alike our Sophies look... We just added two guinea pigs to the household and both the pug and the Pom are going crazy over them. I don't know if they love them or hate them, but they definitely are not indifferent to them. Sophie lays where she can see them and watches them all day. Foxy the Pom barks at the chattering they do with each other. Thanks again for the great swap. Can't wait to show the grandkids!

Comment: So sorry for the delay in rating but it seems that your envie got stuck with a box of Valentines items in the closet. Thanks for sharing your answers and those adorable stickers. And that's cool that u got to meet another swap-botter in person. Ive done that a few times with people from my PBS tea group but not with anyone from SB
Comment: Awww, so darn cute! Thank you so much for all you sent here. Great job on the atcs. Had to come back and thank you extra for the pig postcard, and peanuts Easter sheet and little bunny extra. Message me if the duck and cute sea atc's were for another swap and not just extras?
Response: they were just extras, so glad you liked everything!!
Comment: Thanks Donna, for the ATC. I Love the foil Easter chick stickers on the envie and the Pass it on cards. I used to get those little cards at the Christian bookstore and carry them in my wallet. The Todd Hall PC looks pretty with the Fall colors. Of course I love the glittery border on the kitty card...how cute with the egg and dye buckets. My favorite thing was the Jetoy Coloring PC! Oh, my! I was so excited! I love that cat and I had never seen him on a coloring PC. Thanks for sending it! Happy Easter, HE is Alive, He is Risen! Jesus is Lord and the stone's been rolled away! â™¥
Response: So Happy you liked everything, Miss Paula! Have a Blessed Easter!! Yes, Amen, Jesus is Lord and the stone has been rolled away!
Comment: Donna - I wish I could give you more than one heart!! I got your wonderful Happy Mail today and love everything you sent - what a fun swap! You totally made my day - thanks so much!! Not sure which part of it I enjoy more! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: This was a fun swap and thanks for the great rating and heart!! :) It is so fun to think of all the memories I have of Dr. Seuss books!! I learned to read in first grade and it has been a love affair ever since. We had shelves in the back of our first grade room as our room library. Each room in our grade school had their own little library. I looked forward to Friday afternoons, it was art day and library day! WOW come to think of it I had a love affair with art and coloring from age 4. Fridays were my favorite day and then when I worked Friday was always a great day. LOL
Comment: Super Duper cute ATC, and nicely made as per your norm. Thank you for the cute extras...the suzy's zoo one is sooo cute too...these will be fun to finish. Thank you and thank you for joining some of the swaps in our tiny group. Too fun.
Response: So glad you liked it. Thanks for the rating and the heart. Looking forward to more ATC swaps in this group :)
Comment: I was going to "Fix" my rating mix up, but found out in a hurry that your idea was better, less confusing on an already confused crafter. lolol I LOVE my little baby it's cold outside ATC. I just love wood stock. Thank you!!!! Thank you for the note, the cards and the adorable ATC. And for your niceness. ;)
Response: No, no , no LOL Thank you for hosting these great swaps in Friends Gather. I am loving these swaps. Thanks for the nice comments and the heart rating.

Comment: It is so nice to swap with you again for me too! I am glad my break is over. :) Love my little pooh and piglet ATC. It is adorable. Thank you for the little disney stickers that you put in with it. They will be used. ATC's from you are always neatly done and too fun!
Response: Thanks for the nice comments, fun to be swapping with you again!! Happy New Year to you and your family!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful kitties.The one on the game board reminds me of my cranky Grandpa. When us children were little we would play a board game on the floor at my grandpas'. He would walk in holding the cat by its' tail and stand on the game. We would cry and yell for him to let the yowling cat loose and he would stand there and ask us what cat. He would hold the cat up and look under it and over it like it wasn't there. The whole time the cat is meowing and growling. This would go till grandma game in and got after him. Then he would sulk because his fun was spoiled.
Response: My dad used to pester my grandmas dog until Grandma came in and got after him. Here is to strong Grandmas!! Glad you liked the ATC's!!
Comment: Hi Donna! I love the flocking! It looks just like Fall leaves. The sky feels like chalk paint. I haven't used chalk paint yet but I have some. Good creative idea, those leaves on the ground, I really like the PC! Happy Swapping..... = ) Love the Cat PC, too, Thanks!
Response: Hi Paula, So glad you liked it, I had fun making it for you. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Flat Donna is so so cute! I am going to have so much fun with her tomorrow! Lucky she has on her sun glasses. It is still in the 90s here! Can you say hot! She might need a rain coat if that hurricane doesn't turn enough!
Response: I hope the hurricane turns, stay safe. We just got back from Disney World so know how hot it is there!! It is in the 60's during the day here, just got cooler when we got back, talk about a shock to our bodies!! I got my doll from Portland, OR and am having tons of fun showing her the sights of southern Illinois!! :)
Comment: Thank you Donna for the JAMs - gosh lots of history!!! And so sad about Equality, IL's history. I'll get on these and mail them out by mid next week. Awesome JAM - thanks for hosting it!!! darla
Response: thanks Darla, thanks for the rating and the heart, happy jamming!!
Comment: Cool ATCs - thank you! I LOVE Garfield! I got myself a couple sets of Copics... But to be honest I have not put them to good use yet! My favorite thing to do art with is Prismacolor pencils :)
Comment: Hi Donna - I hope things are getting a bit easier there! Just wanted you to know your sweet angel send an awesome pc from The Honeymooners! It had me giggling! Sending big hugs your way and well wishes for your hubby! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thanks for the great Autumn cards--great use of the mystery supply! I was tickled to see that you were sending to me in this one, after I sent to you last time...have a great summer!
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart! Yes I hope we swap again soon. I love the mystery supply swaps!! You also, I hope you have a great summer. I love most everything about summer, I could do without excessive heat and mosquitos and red wasps!! LOL
Comment: Hi Donna. Thank you so much for the nice package. I really appreciate you taking the time to send me some pc's you knew I'd like. And I wish I knew the tune to the song. I used to sing a version of that to my kids every night at bedtime. :-)
Response: Thanks for doing the private swap with me. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Hi Donna! Loved the snow on the cactus pc - very cool! What fun to watch the squirrels while enjoying your breakfast - sounds like a wonderful way to start the day!! Thanks so much of for the great share and for joining the swap! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart! :) I so hope that people who join receive their books back. I have received one of mine back already. Thanks for joining my swaps. Happy Swapping.
Comment: Thank you Donna for a beautiful card,stickers,and the note about all your birds. I saw a blue bird for the first time 2 years ago.What a treat that was,because they are so beautiful. How fun it must be to watch them build their nest! I love my stickles too!
Response: So happy you liked everything, and thanks so much for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: This PC just hopped in. Such hoppiness in a single PC. I shall carry on. Thanks for the nice note. I don't think we have enough open area for bluebirds, but we do have cardinals, which are said to be a greeting from loved ones.
Response: Yes I believe cardinals and butterflies are greetings from loved ones and have had experiences with both!! Thanks for the rating and heart and as always thanks for joining my swaps. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Donna, thanks for the wonderful letter about the birds you have! My you have so many kinds and colors. I've never seen a blue bird but supposedly then sometimes nest here if you put out the right kind of house. We see and hear cardinals---beauty of color and song. We feed squirrels as well--had 7 all at one feeder in the oak tree outside my art room window. My understanding of Tabitha was much like yours, but I liked the way you distinguished between disciples and apostles---I'd come across that before I'm certain but had lost that well explained difference. Thanks for both the shared study question answers and a delightful letter! Wish I could visit you backyard!
Response: I wish I could see all your squirrels and your art room! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Hi Donna! I had a wonderful time visiting with you and your PL was amazing, like you! Your work is always so neat and sweet! So glad we met here on SB and our friendship has grown from there! Thank you for hosting this swap as well - it gave us an opportunity to enjoy each others craftiness and a visit - whoop, whoop! Thank you for all the extras - you so did not have to do that - loving everything though! LOL! Wish I could give more than one heart - as your friendship does my heart good! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: You are too sweet, Thank you for your great friendship and the great rating!!
Comment: Donna, Amazing swap! I love the ATC you made me, and the attention to detail, so creative, with the pink snow! I would love to do a private ATC swap with you sometime in March! I think you did a great job! Im sorry to hewar about your father-in law, my condolences to you and your husbands family. Take time to heal and I will keep you in my prayers... thank you for being my swap partner, you do beautiful work! :)
Response: So glad you liked it. Thanks for the rating and the heart. :) Happy Swapping.
Comment: oH mIMi, its just wonderful! I love it, I love it! I also really appreciate you addressing and using a real mock stamp. I just love the glitter on the tress, kitty scarf and the snow which by the way Im trying to figure what you used. lol x0x
Response: Thanks so much for the compliment and the rating and the heart :)
Comment: Thanks Donna for the swap. I love the Popeye PC! I used to drive from the Chicago area thru Southern Illinois and Missouri to my family in Arkansas.I guess anyone wanting to get into MO has to go the long way around with the bridge closed. Thanks again for these swaps, always a great swap with you! = ) â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Thanks Paula, Does your family still live in Arkansas? The bridge is open now and the flooding here wasn't as bad as it was in 1993. Thanks for the rating and the heart. But the flooding was still bad and I feel so much for the people who were affected by the flood. :(
Comment: Hi Donna Jean, nice to get a swap from you again :) Actually, I really like the simplicity of the tree one - it's beautiful! Reminds me of my favorite Robert Frost poem, "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening". And the snowman one is very fun :) Thanks!!
Response: Yes, happy to swap with you again also, and so glad you liked them! Happy New Year to you!
Comment: Happy Birthay Miss Donna!!! I recved your pc yesterday but after shopping in the rain I was too tired to rate - sorry!! LOL! What an awesome pc!! I might have to go to Meramec Caverns just for the pcs!! LOL! Your answer was awesome, I was just going to use it all for Christmas shopping! But that Daisy Lane trip sounds like a winner as well!! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Hi Vicky, I thought you might like that postcard, I picked it out just for you! Hugs and Happy Swapping! Thanks for the great rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you for the sweet postcard--it sounds like you have a big heart and I think that is one ability I would like to have too! Glad to meet another cat lady! We should do another swap together sometime-great meeting you!
Response: thanks for the sweet comment, great rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Oh my gosh Donna - where to begin?? Your wonderful Pocket Letter totally made my day and so many extras - you spoiled me so bad! Your sweetness brought tears to my eyes and I so appreciate our friendship!! Wish I could give dozens of hearts instead of just one!! Sending big hugs your way and thanks again for everything!!! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I am so happy :) that I could make you smile. I treasure our friendship!! :) Thanks so much for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thanks for the fun postcard! I hope that Myrtle Beach has not been washed away by the vicious storm that so much of South Carolina has had to endure this week. A very sad situation and remind me of our 2008 flood here with the cedar and Iowa rivers where we had much of the same or whole houses were swallowed up. . I think ribeye steak is a wonderful meal. Hopefully you will get to enjoy it again soon. One of our grill favorites.
Response: Good to hear from you. Thanks for the rating! :)
Comment: Thanks for the personal calendar and the cool postcards! It's good to see an involved grandparent. My stomach sank at the mention of your granddaughter's eye surgery at such a young age. Wow. Glad it went well.
Response: She has had two eye surgerys, one at 2 years of age and one at 3 and a half. Thanks for your care and concern. She is doing well. One surgery they corrected the outer muscles and this one the inner muscles. She wears glasses and does very well with them. Thanks so much for letting me send early and thanks for the rating and the heart! :)

Comment: Hi Donna! I got two postcards--yippee! Both of the cards you sent are simply gorgeous. The opossum is cute cute cute and the otter card with the glitter is just brilliant! Thank you for sending them in envelopes--I appreciate it so much. I'm actually going to frame your little otter and hang him in one of my bathrooms! WONDERFUL!!
Response: Hi Kristy, So glad they arrived and that you like them! :) How funny-- my bathroom has border wall paper with otters and I have a garden flag on my cabinet in my bathroom of an otter and I have a squeak toy otter on display in my bathroom also. Love my otters!! LOL As always thanks for the great rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thanks for the great swap! I love my little Indian girl ATC (the mystery supply was a perfect headband for her). And I love the snowman card you made for me, too. I will have to find the perfect place to display it this winter.
Response: Glad you liked the ATC and the snowman card! :)
Comment: Donna, I was SO excited to get your Lion! He's cute! The card has great balance of elements. Thanks, too, for the sweet note. I loved hearing about all your cards. And if I get your name for 'm', I'll fulfill your wish!! Thanks for participating so faithfully and I'll start 'M' tonight!

Response: I do love my stickles!! Thanks so much for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Hi Donna,
Thanks for the great ATC! I am very allergic to cats so this is the only way I get to enjoy them! I love the stamped images also... my favorite is the puppy with the reindeer antlers, but the cat ones are hilarious.
A private swap on How To Train Your Dragon would be great. If you want to set it up - that would be great. We are taking the little grandkids to Disney the end of July so it would have to be due after the August 2nd. Let me know....
We have a lot in common - hope to stay in touch.
Response: I am glad you liked the ATC and stamped images. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: They must have only made one stamp in honor of this kitty cat-and neither one of us had an original but a good printer!!!!! Kitty-Kitty-great card! Funny you should ask what I did for Memorial Day-my husband had a seizure the Sunday before Memorial Day so he was in hospital-he fell outside against bbq grill-we were going to have a nice meal-luckily he hadn't lit the grill yet. He had spent the day planting our garden and it was very hot that day! He came home on Wednesday getting back to normal but he had cracked two ribs and not moving too fast. I'm getting alot of crafting done while he is recovering and the cats are a BIG help too-if you know what I mean! I keep a glass of water on my crafting desk just for the cats to have a drink of water when they want-are they spoiled or what! Thanks fopr swapping with me and for all the wonderful extras you sent me-made my day!!!
Response: Sorry to hear about your hubby, hope he is mending with each passing day. My hubby is on seizure medication. Funny about giving your cats water while you craft. I have a cat, Rory who likes iced tea! Thanks so much for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Awesome postcard Donna- thank you, I've never seen this cat before. He's got a bit of a glare going on, reminds me of my cat when I accidentally wake her up. And I adore all the bonus hippo stuff! Hip hip hurray!
Response: Yes , aren't cats funny. We recently went away for only a couple of days, one of our cats met us at the door when we got home. Another took 2 hours to welcome us and our pouty cat left us alone for about 7 hours. She was mad we had left her!! LOL Glad you liked the card. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Again, I thought I rated you. I am so sorry. Thank you for the Illinois ATC. Somehow it made it to my craft desk before my computer desk. I leave my swaps to be rated on my computer desk. My apologies.
Response: Quite all right. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thanks for giraffe postcard-very creative-and spotted!! And the postcard of that awesome tree-wow! I don't believe I do have an IL ATC-I will make and send you a ND one-now that I have your address handy. Thanks for asking and thanks for swapping!
Response: Glad you liked them. I will make you an IL ATC and thanks for making me a ND one! :) Thanks for the rating and heart! :)
Response: Spotteddogs sent me those dots that I glued on the home and on the back as rocks. She sent me an AWESOME RAK! I am so glad you like my little creation! Thanks so much for the great rating and the heart! :) Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the great start in the pass and paste card! Love all of the texture on it , and can't wait to add my own spring piece. However, knowing our postal system, you will be a lucky person if the fuzzy tail makes it back to you intact ;). Happy swapping!
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart! Thanks for creating on my card. Some of us swapbotters mail the pass and pastes back in an envy, I am hoping someone will mail it back in an envy. :) I know some like them naked in the mail but I likie mine in an envy. Even if you don't have things like the fuzzy tail, they can get pretty beat up traveling naked in the mail. :(
Comment: Donna, I received an awesome package from you! I love all the ATCs, postcards and reading your letter. That Easter card is so cute and well done. I always enjoy reading about places my swap buddies live. Thank you for a nice surprise in my mailbox. How could you think I would be disappointed? ;) I love the humor in your cards, have two more to add to my rubberstamped alphabet set, and when I get my state cards organized I can add the Conn. to that set. Thank you for trading with me.
Response: So glad you liked everything, we will have to trade more often. Thanks for the rating and the heart! Hurry up spring! :)
Comment: Oh Donna . . . your little frogs are SOOOOO cute! I love your card. Very innovative use of special paper and your glitter accents are just perfect. Thank you very much and I'm so glad you're enjoying the series~
Response: So glad you liked it, Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: I couldn't be irritated! You sent me BUBBLE paper - thank you so much! And kitties taking bubble baths! I love it all - oh, and thanks for the stamps that were the actual swap. LOL! Thanks for making this swap special!
Response: This was a great swap for me as well, we will have to do this again sometime. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Response: I wish you would have rated me when you actually received this swap. I will send this swap before its due on Feb. 7th. Maybe then the extras that I sent would have earned me a heart. Wolfmother rated me before she received this.
Comment: WOW! You sent three. They are all very nice. I love the giraffe. They are all cute though and the polar bear sticker one is great. The ice on the Garfield and Odie one is really cool. Love my ATC's. Thanks!
Response: I always love it when you send me address labels. I can't make them, so I thought I would make you some extra ATC's. So very happy you like them! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thanks so much for both pass and paste cards, and of course the French translation. Are you fluent? I am studying French a bit this year, and enjoyed puzzling out what I could of your note, and then checking it against the English version to fill in the blanks!
Response: You are welcome for the cards. I am hardly fluent. I am now 55 years old and had 3 years of French In HIgh School. So I cheated and looked on the computer to make sure I had it right! LOL Thanks for the rating and the heart!!
Comment: Loved your ATC - I've been to Illinois a couple of times but don't have an Illinois ATC for my collection - until now! Thank you and thanks for the extra stamped images - they're too cute! Happy New Year! Peace, Michelle
Response: Glad you liked it. Happy New Year to you also! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Hi! I wish I could give you more than one heart! I love all the ATCs and you are sweet to send the other goodies! What awesome Happy Mail! Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Glad you liked them, Vicky. I wanted to make a few more ATC's for you but I ran out of time. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Great ATC-I didn't know there was such a thing as a white squirrel-we have many many gray and red ones helping themselves to our birdfeeders!
Interesting facts-thanks for sharing-Happy holidays! Thanks for the Halloween extras-you know I love them ANY time of the year!
Response: Glad you liked everything! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :) Happy Holidays to you also!

I am so far behind on all omh swaps s so need to get on to the next taso; Happy, jolly holiday."
Response: I am glad you liked the holiday kittens, yes I used stickles, I love to use stickles and I love to use flower soft, my favorite embellishments! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Interesting PC I'm hooked on this swap too! I'm not sure I can make a little monster like the rest of you artists,maybe I'll complete the pc by making them a home?! Thanks for the pc, it looks like the area is a beautiful place for the cross.
Response: That would be cool to make the monsters a home! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)

Comment: Donna, Thank you so much for the beautiful card, and also for the rating!
It was so interesting to hear about where you live in Ill. I also have a brother who lives in S.Carolina. And I have a daughter who lives in Southern Florida. Like you, I hate the winter! I will be going to my daughters the middle of December till then end of January. I usually go back a few more times in the winter. She buys my tickets, or I would never be able to go.How I love being there! While I am swimming, everyone else in New England will be shoveling snow! (how mean I am, huh?) Again thank you so much. I love meeting new people!
Response: It was a pleasure to write to you Kathie. I'll be thinking of you in Florida in Dec. and Jan.! You lucky thing! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Very nice atc and like the nice note you wrote with it. I have been to Chicago when I was in fashion merch school in Mpls in the 1970's saw all the sites-especially liked the doll house museum. We are going to Springfield for Thanksgiving as my husband has a sister there. Illinois is a lot like North Dakota weatherwize and I love having all the seasons too-but I like winter!
Response: I have never been to the doll house museum, would love to go! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Nice! Thank you for the variety of paper and your generosity. I have only a few of the ones you chose so that worked out well. I really liked the firework one & that leaf is way cool!! Have a great fall season Mz. Donna!
Response: Glad you liked the papers! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :) YOu, also have a great fall season!
Comment: Oh wow what an absolutely wonderful swap. The note (and letter) you sent were great. I think a Juicy Fruit Gum pack would be awesome...I was a Rubiks cube once...but walking around in a box tends be a pain. LOL Taco said hello and thanks for the pat. As for the mask...could you work it into a Halloween Wreath? I think it would be great.
Response: Wow a rubiks cube, how awesome! The mask in the Halloween Wreath is an awesome idea as well! Thanks so much for the idea! Glad you liked everything and thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: A lovely ATC, thank you so much.. all the best to your husband... if you are into homeopathic remedies, ARNICA internally will help him xo white light and healing thoughts coming his way xo
Response: Thanks for the info on ARNICA and thanks for the healing thoughts! :) It has now been 3 weeks since the accident and he has turned the corner , as the pain is some better. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Love your cards as usual. You have such a creative talent. Thank you and for the extra Pooh card. It made me smile
Response: Thanks so much for the compliment, I needed that especially today, Day1 of caregiver to my hubby. Helped him shower and put his Turtle Shell back on, and am assisting with meds, etc. Trying to get him to rest but he is like the energizer bunny, so we will see. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart. Yesterday he came home from the hospital and yesterday Sept. 4 was our 31st wedding anniversary.
Comment: Thank you very much for the beautiful PC and the message. I love Virginia beach as well! It is such a beautiful, unique light house! So cool, that you got to climb to the top! Sounds like you had a great summer vacation!
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart! Yes, we had a great vacation! :)
Comment: Hi Donna, I really like your filmstrip ATC. This was my first creations with the filmstrips and it was pretty fun. Amazing how so many items can be used for crafting isn't it? :-) You are so fortunate to have a sub meet and greet. How fun!! If I lived closer and was invited I would have jumped at the chance for such fun. Thank you for a very nice swap and great images. I really appreciate it. :-)
Response: This was also my first creation with the filmstrips. It was fun! I wish you lived closer, you are invited if you want to come to the swapbot meet up. I am glad you liked what I sent! :)

Comment: Good morning! I received your ATCs and your thoughtful swap yesterday. Thank you so much! I like what you did with the tourist papers, that is a great idea! I will have some enjoyable reading for the next few days. It's fun reading about other places and gave me some ideas of what I can send to you. :) Thanks again! What a fun swap and can't wait to join some state swaps.
Response: I am glad you liked what I sent! :) Every couple months or so , we will have to do a private swap. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the cute card & note. I am happy to have participated in your swap! I hope your mother had a lot of fun reading all the cards we sent her. I hope to see you around swap-bot again! <3

Comment: Thanks for joining this swap! I LOVE this adorable kitty floating through space with its tongue sticking out! lol! Also a HUGE thanks for the extra garfield ATC! I love cats and I can't wait to add these to my collection :D
Response: I am so glad you liked them. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you Donna for the owl and purple. How cute. Also for the paper. I sure needed something in the mail today. I just found out yesterday that my husbands best friend 48 died on Mother's day after a short illness of stomach cancer. He was a very nice guy. That is great you can do that. I have a Stamp in Up demo that lives 5 min. from me and I'm always helping her set up for camps and she lets me use her stuff all the time. It's nice to have friends like that. Have a GREAT day. Thank you so much.
Response: I am glad I could brighten your day! Thanks so much for the rating and the heart! :) You also have a great day!
Comment: Awww, I love my grumpy cat atc!! Also the roller Derby atc is awesome, too! :D I had dreams to be on the team, & was so excited for my 18th bday & to try out for the team... I broke both ankles in a car accident a couple of months before my 18th & my dreams went down the drain. :( I am still upset over it. I could outskate all of them, & now I do good to walk. >.< sigh... I so love this these cards, though! How awesome you skated too! :) thanks again for swapping!
Response: So sorry to hear about the broken ankles and your dream being taken away. I am happy you like the grumpy cat and roller Derby ATC! Great to swap with you!
Comment: I love what you sent! Thank you so much! Wonderful ocean stuff and cats! I haven't seen any of these. I will have fun using them. Received a few days ago but have been sick with a nasty cold. I should have done the ones I sent to you like this. Will remember if we swap again. Thanks again so much for swapping! <3
Response: I am so glad you liked what I sent and that you can use them. We will have to swap again, this was fun! :) Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Donna, what a creative Easter Bunny ATC--that kind of creative spark I don't seem to possess, so I love it when others do! An Easter Egg Car is so fun! Thanks for the smiles it brought to my face! I will certainly find uses for the stamped images as well. Thank you VERY much!
Response: Well in reality all I had to do was stamp the image and color and cut out the sparkly Easter egss!! A friend had given me the rubber stamp, isn't it cool? Glad you liked it, thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: OH. MY. GOODNESS!!! - Just fabulous!!!! I cannot believe you made a whole paper doll wardrobe, a mermaid, and a mermaid with legs (and such cute legs to boot)! This was truly ingenious - and a ton of work!!!! Such a beauty, I will treasure all of it! Thanks for such fabulousness!!!!! I am off to rave about her in the TPD thread .....
Response: I am so glad you like her!! I was worried about this swap cause you should see the one I received!! Alcohol inks and a material to make her more sturdy!! Mine I received is AWESOME!! I don't know how to do pictures on here so maybe you could post a picture of mine for everyone to see. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart!! I am so HAPPY you like her and that she traveled well. :)
Comment: Thankyou Donna for the lovely creative pooh and Roo ATCs. Pooh Bear is so cute and I love the Roo one. Thankyou Donna for the nice note and it is so nice to be your partner. Have a nice day, Donna,love Jennifer
Response: Hi Jennifer, NIce to be your partner once again and here from you! I am glad you liked everything. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :) I hope to see you around in more swaps with me!
Comment: Oh how cute, the Dwarf one !!! Beautiful job. And two snow whites. The Sparkle one is my fave, but love the little animals on the other too. Loved this swap, thank you so much!
Response: I am loving all the swaps by Friends Gather group, I like to try to think of something different for each ATC but sometimes that gets hard. So I am glad you like them Thanks so much for the rating and the heart!! :)
Comment: Loved this ATC. The snow is awesome looking, and I just ADORE all things sparkly and pearly. :) Merry Christmas! (PS, Envelopes with a metal clasp automatically cost more to send in the mail, so if you rip off the metalclasp, and just use tape to seal the envie, it should cost the normal 45c. :)
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart! Glad you liked the ATC! :) Thanks for the info about mailing.
Comment: Love love her! I have used flower soft before but the pearl stuff Nice! It would have been cheaper to mail if you would use a smaller envy. I see you had to pay the large envy fee.
Response: Thank you and thank you for the rating and the heart! I used the big envelope because I wanted to send it delivery confirmation and that is what my post office prefers but then the postmaster couldn't get it to go delivery confirmation without doing priority so I ended not sending delivery confirmation, I have had quite a few envelopes go missing here lately :( So I am ok with more postage if it got to you :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card and ATC! I love it!! One of my favorites for sure!! =) Next time you're near Charleston, you'll just have to pop down south a little more to Edisto! I own a gift shop there, although Edisto is rather a bit more quiet than Myrtle Beach and other places, but then that's the charm of it all! All the best!
Response: Glad you liked everything. I would love to come to your gift shop next time I am near Charleston. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: Thank you so much. You did a great job on the ATC. And I absolutely love all the stamped kitties. I've been doing a happy dance since I opened the envelope! You made my weekend.
Response: KInd of sad you had to wait so long, sorry the first one got lost in the mail but those things happen. So happy you waited to rate me. Thanks for the rating and the heart! :) So happy you liked everything. I am tickled pink bo be a part of this great group!

Comment: Hi! Good to hear from you and yes, sometimes we have to just take a deep breath and remember what all we do have to thankful for! Life is not always fair, but it is so much better than the alternative! TY for participating in the swap, and sharing what you are giving thanks for, also for all the awesome Garfield stamped images - so totally rock! I do not have one Garfield stamp, so this is just amazing! Thanks again for everything and I wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving and Holiday Season! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: So thankful for your friendship and doesn't swapbot rock!! WE live only an hour away and would have probably never known our friendship if it hadn't been for swapbot!! :) Glad you liked everything, so sad you do not have any Garfield stamps but I will keep you supplied in images any time you want them. Isn't my new Halloween bigger one so cool? Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: lol I started to make the same animals!! But I had an oops so I had to change..lol that is so funny.. I love them both! I appreciate the extra atc and stuff!! I love the stamped images since they are both asian..
Response: I actually made an ATC with the panda and tea stamp. I detail colored the china cup, it was tedious work, but I think it turned out well. Glad you like everything, thanks so much for the rating and the heart! :)
Comment: I loved my ATC's, Donna. I thought the fall tree was lovely. But I know how it is when one has an idea of how something SHOULD turn out, and then it doesn't. Since the result doesn't match our preconceived idea, we think it isn't good. But someone else who sees it without having an idea of how it should look, thinks it's great! And it is! But ..I won't complain as I love the witch ATC too!!! Thank you so much for both my Fall Treasures!!!
Response: Cindy, Thanks for the nice compliment on my ATC's. Thanks for the heart and the rating. :) Happy Swapping and Happy Halloween!
Comment: The mice popping the popcorn over the birthday cake candles was adorable. I loved the way you used glitter to trace some of the lines on the background paper. Thanks so much for the lighthouses and kitty to color.
Response: Glad you liked it. Thanks for the rating! :)
Comment: Oh my goodness, how cute! I love the popcorn image you used, the way you colored it and the background is awesome. I really like this atc. Thank you soooo much! Thank you as well for the additional images that you sent.
Response: So glad you liked it!! Thanks for the rating and the heart! :)

Comment: Awe... sweet paper doll.. What I do for clothing is take a small brad and go through the clothing and through the body.. Kinda of like a metal belly button.. LOL ! Makes changing clothing so easy.. Many thanks. cj
Response: THanks for the rating and the heart, this was my first paper doll swap, so thanks for the ip about using a brad to change clothing. Didn't think about that.
Comment: Thank you so much! I love these. :D I can tell you spent a lot of time on them and I appreciate the handwritten letter.
Response: I am so glad you liked them!! I sometimes wonder when someone says they like hand drawn. I love hand drawn too, but mine would probably end up looking like a kindergartener drew them !! Thanks so much for rating and the heart!! Wasn't Brave a great movie?
Comment: Love the postcards! NOW I understand why you asked me if I liked Popeye! LOL! That card is really cool! All of them are just great - I love the map one! What a great addition to my beginning postcard collection - thank you so much!!

Comment: OMG, This card made me laugh out loud! It was sooo cute! Im even laughing now as i reread it and get ready to rate you! (Still humming O Christmas tree, Your ornaments are history :) hahah
Response: When our cat, Rory was a kitten she climbed to the top of the tree and pushed the top over and sat on the cloth angel!! True It was like she was saying she wanted to be the Christmas angel. She did this so many times the top of my tree was forever bent over and I had to get a new tree the next year!! Thanks for the rating and the heart!!
Comment: Donna I love this card so much. What a super job you did on it. Reminds me of my kitties from past who would get into all of the Christmas things and then proceed to take the trees down. Thanks so much for a cute handmade card. and lovely note! YAY it is almost our birthdays!
Response: I am so glad you liked it, I had fun making it for you. Happy Birthday to you ( and me) LOL on the 28th. Hope you have a great Birthday!! Thanks for the rating and the heart!!
Comment: Thanks for the FAB swap! You did a lovely ATC -- I esp. like the lime and turquoise colors. Nice use of metal embellies too. The images you sent are to much fun. I think I like the snowcat and mouse best, but all the cats are adorable (can hardly wait to color the one with the Christmas lights). I appreciate that they are all so cleanly stamped too. Thanks again for hosting such a fun swap! <3<3<3
Response: So glad you liked everything, if you ever want to do a private swap again, just message me.
