Comment: I didn't realize this ATC was a mixed media one with hand drawn and collage aspects to it. I actually really like the way you executed this card. Thank you so much for joining my swaps and putting so much effort/time into the ATC's you mail out! Thank you for the extras as well, I'm a sucker for stickers and postcards. <3 (I'm still traveling for work to get my hours in, but I'm able to return home every week or two depending on where I'm at. :) )
Comment: I love when you are my partner such a great attention to little details LOVE the ATC! And all the extras and the envie as well( it has a place in my art journal). Lucked out with a few of the gorjuss stamps that I don't have yet & I always love to see someone else enjoys them (and doesn't try to correct the spelling Lol). Hope you take a bite of your pies for me as the deer and bear love our berries so hardly ever any left for us we're lucky to get a handful here and there. Thanks again! 😀
Response: That makes me feel honored to be placed in your journal. I have managed to pick 4 more gallon bags of blackberries since I sent you this swap. If you lived closer I would share them with you.
Thank you for the rating and heart.♥️
Comment: THANK YOU Anna for the wonderful washi. It is so festive for the month of July. I really love YOUR choices. All of them are so cool. Plus the envelope you sent them in was very creative. Thank you.
Glad you liked what I sent!
Thank you for the rating and heart.
Comment: Loved the envelope, interesting interruption of your ATC.
Response: Wonderful and glad you liked the envelope. I am new to watercolors and I wasn’t sure if my girl would be enough the way she turned out. But i liked her. Simple
Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the funky collection of birds-like how you incorporated real feathers into it! Thanks also for the book page and sewing themed extras. Of course being the paper doll lover-I had to try the dresses on the dress form! They will go in a journal I'm working on. Thanks for sharing!
Response: So happy you liked what I sent. I would love to see the journal you are working on.
If you would like more dresses in a certain color let me know and I will try and get them cut and sent to you. Thank you for the rating and heart!
Comment: Hi Anna, I wish I could give more hearts, love these ATC's!! Thanks for the awesome washi tapes also!! 4th of July is also my brother in laws birthday!! Plus I had a very special kitty, a little firecracker who was born on the 4th of July!!
Response: I am so glad you like the ATC’s I sent. I love washi and I have bought a lot of it with intensions to share and for some reason I tend to want to hoard it lol! Glad you like what I sent. Thanks for the rating and heart.
Comment: What a wonderful envelope! The flower drawings on it is so cute! I really enjoyed everything you sent. Your ATC is awesome! You have such talent! Is that your grand baby with the sock Monkey? How sweet! 🥰 Thank you so much for a happy mail that made me smile today!
Response: So glad you liked the ATC and everything else. No that wasn’t my grand baby in the picture but it was too cute not to share with another monkey lover.
Thank you for the rating and ❤️
Comment: Love the CA postcard! Tater cakes are pretty much like a pancake made from mashed potatoes... except I prefer ketchup on mine instead of syrup 😀 If I can find my grandmother's recipe I'll share it with you.
Response: That would be awesome. Thank you for the rating♥️
Comment: Hi Anna! Absolutely fabulous Lemon ATC! You are so talented! Thank you so much :-0 Thank you also for the washi samples... have never seen ANY of them before! Love the Make Lemonade one the best!!! FUN! The coin is beautiful... how do you cut a 2.5 inch coin? Certainly not by hand! It's perfectly round! Yes, my son is now in Carmichael.. so not too far from you.. :-) Thank you again! So glad you liked the fruit swaps! Hope we can swap again sometime!
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart. I punched the circle with a 2.5” hole punch. Glad you liked my ATC😊
Comment: Wow, thanks for all the strawberry stuff, including the 3 THREE ATCs!! They look so cute all together! Those cutting machines are great! I have the Sizzix, but not very many dies. You have used yours very well. Thanks so much for your generosity and lovely goodies.
Thank you for the rating and heart
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful pumpkin spice ATC. I love it. This is my first ATC swap. I haven’t made cards since I was in art school which was a long time ago. I hope to use the cup sleeve and on a fall card. Can I ask where you got the stamp on the back of the card? It’s really neat.
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart. If it was the little cup with the shaker it is a lawn fawn stamp and I just bought it for this swap on Amazon.
Comment: I love your "Little bird" so darn cute. I also love your water color background. I think I might have to consider learning because of it! Thank you for the ATC paper and Joker cards, awesome....... happy swapping
Response: I am so glad you liked the bird. I am not great at water colors but it’s fun to play with. You should give it a try it’s relaxing to watch the colors on the paper dance around.
Comment: Absolutely beautiful and the fish are just fabulous. I tried to do one and just couldn’t get it right. Seaweed had so many shades of greens uggg. How I wish I had that ability....Love your work❤️❤️❤️❤️ Such talent Anna
Response: Such kind words thank you. I am glad you liked my ATC. Just keep trying you will get better. I watch a lot of utube videos and go from there. Thank you much for the rating ❤️
Comment: Hi Anna. I wish I could say I'm fine, but every spring I come down with a sinus infection. Like elephants walking through my face. But, I'm taking time out to rate my partners. The weather today (Fri) was 65 and cloudy. Supposed to rain tomorrow. Oh well.... Thanks for the really nice ATC. Love the layout. Thanks too for the extras. I'll put them to good use. See ya soon I hope..
Response: Hi SamiE
I hope you are feeling better. We have gotten a lot of rain fast. We need the rain but needs to be a slow rain so the ground can soak it up.. Thank you for the rating and heart. Have a great day.
Comment: Thanks so very much for the beautifully crafted ATC! Thanks for the extras too! I really appreciate it and I love the butterfly. I'll definitely make an ATC or two out of the kit you sent! Thanks so much!!!
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed my work.
You are welcome and thank you for the rating and heart
Comment: Anna, thanks for this cute ATC and the postcard about where you live! I've wondered what it was like there. How cool! Thank you for all my extras....again, you spoil me. XO
Response: Thank you Kathryn for the rating and 💜. I had misplaced my little box of charms that I wanted to send with this swap. I found it after I had sent your swap of course. Thanks for hosting another great swap.
Comment: Hi Anna!
Thank you so so much for the beautiful ATCs! I really like them a lot! It was so kind of you to throw in a few goodies. They will be put to good use! I've just started this site and am really loving it so far! Thanks again for the beautiful art you sent!
Response: I am so glad you liked the ATCS I love making them and sending them off for others to enjoy. Thanks for the rating and heart 💜
Comment: I love the atc you made. It's beautiful. I've never seen a balsa cut heart other than in asian art. I love your simple background that really allows the stamp and heart to be the highlight. And thank you so much for the extra tuckins you sent. That was so generous of you. I may be selfish and keep the extra balsa heart to myself. heehee
Response: I also loved the hearts and I have had them a while just couldn’t seem to part with them, until this swap and they seemed perfect for it.
It was simple but I really liked how it turned out. Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Anna, I am speechless over the package you sent to me! I was amazed over and over as I took each wrapped 'gift' out and opened it. I cannot put into words how I felt with all the things you included: it was Christmas, it was my birthday, it was every holiday in the year all rolled into one! I told my boss that I HAVE to quit my job; I have zillions of crafts that I just HAVE to do now!!! I think that JoAnns and Michaels craft stores will not be seeing me for a while; but before I start on any crafts, I'll have to go through this treasure trove several times just to take it all in. I wish I could give you not only a heart for this trade, but also stars and moon and all the planets! Thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!!!
Response: Perfect I was hoping it would make you feel Special. May you be able to make many crafts/ATCs with it. Hope we swap again.
Thank you much for the rating and heart.
Comment: Many thanks #3. Love this ATC. You do fine work. I just use old pics and make up sayings for them. No complaints, yet. You've not had much snow. I keep up with the weather up there. Thanks again for the goodies. Haven't worked on any quilts in a long time. It's called "depression". Got more fabric than God (he understands), but not the will power right now. I need too get back to it. Have a nice winter. See ya
Response: Thank you for the rating and â¤ï¸.
I do hope you feel well enough to pick up your hobby of sewing, it can be so rewarding. Any time you would like to write I would love to write you back. Just private message me and I can give you my Address!, if you donâ€™t already have it. Hugs Anna
Comment: Many thanks #2. The ATC is so cute. Sewing is one of my favorite things to do. Thanks too for the cutouts. I'll find a use for them. We haven't had any ice or snow here. Rain and fog. Today it's 50 out but we could get some soft snow Thursday. Never know what the day will bring. See ya!!
Response: Thank you for the heart and rating. Glad you liked the sewing ATC.
Comment: thank you for the cute atcs and for sending an extra one. I really enjoy the atcs <3
Response: So glad you liked them. I was on my way to the post office with them to mail and decided I wanted to do a painted one too. Thatâ€™s why there was extra rape on the envelope. Thanks for the rating and heart
Comment: I get two!!! Thanks Anna, I always love all you send. These are great!
Response: Thank you. I had the envelope ready to send and on my way to the post office I decided I wanted to do a painted one too. So I made them over Thanksgiving and had to add extra tape to the envelope. It was fun to do.
Thank you for the rating and â¤ï¸
Comment: I ran to the post office to mail this out to my Dad today. I made him a card too. We recently got to visit and I shared my book of ATC's with him. He was so impressed. I sent him yours along with the card and told him about you and how you have become special to me. Thank you for such beautiful work....he will be tickled. Hugs!
Response: Awe thatâ€™s so cool that my card and ATC went to someone special. Thank you to your Dad for his service to this country.
I also made several more cards and sent them to a couple of close friends and they loved them.
It is always fun swapping with you your cards are always great. Glad we are more than just card swapping partners. Itâ€™s nice we are becoming Friends. Thank you for the flower seeds, cannot wait to plant them in the spring.

Comment: I absolutely love my ATC. It is beautiful! Thank you for all the overflowing extras, too! Happy swapping!
Response: Wonderful I love making them and swapping. Extras are fun to get. I made some really cool ATCs from a piece of road map and truck postage stamps from the mail I had received.
Happy Swapping and thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thank you so much! I love the extremely beautiful cards you've madeï¼I fell in love the moment I opened my mail box, because the envelope is so lovely <3 Thank you for the extra card! I am a newbie at ATC, and your cards are the first ones I've received. I think I'm in love with this craft! but I still need to spend more time on learning this new hobby.
Response: You are so welcome! I felt the same way when I got my first one too. I love to make ATCs. I tend to be more in the collage style artist. I don't draw very well but I keep trying. Have fun hope we swap again.
Happy Swapping and thank you for the rating.
Comment: wow! Everything about this is lovely. Even the envelope is a work of art! and I LOVE the unique card inside. Thanks for the charming and silly chicken ATC. I already know where it will be in my chicken collection! And my WORD the Washii tape! wow! thank you SO much!
Response: Thank you for the great rating and I am so glad you liked the ATC and extras. â¤ï¸
Comment: Hello Anne,
Thank you for the very lovely and simple ATC you created for me for this swap. You did a great job choosing two words to describe what was going on in the picture. Have a great day. Hopefully we will get to swap again.
P.S. Thank you for the washi tape you sent me too.
Response: You are so welcome and thank you for the heart. Let me know if you ever want to do a private swap.
Comment: Thank you for the bird ATC. And the extra goodies, too. Do you remember where you bought the lady bug washi tape?
Response: I am glad you like the bird ATC. Thank you for the heart. No I don't remember where I got the ladybug washi sorry. Target, hobby lobby and Michaels usually have a lot to choose from. I would try michaels.
Comment: I love these ATC's,So very different from the ones I sent, I love to see everyone's style!! I love that you added Bible Verses. On mine, I had a picture of Noah with a dove and him standing in front of the Ark and I used flower soft on his beard. For Adam and Eve, I colored all of the ATC. Thanks for a great swap!!
Response: I am so glad you liked it . I would have loved to see them all!
Thanks for the heart â¤ï¸
Comment: I simply love the cards you sent for these letters. They are great. I love the ocean and beach themed things so the "o" was perfect and of course the "p" was just me...piggies!!! I wish I could give you 10 hearts for these cards. Thank you so much for some great ATC's.
Comment: OMG. Your beautiful, beautiful, beautiful pocket letter arrived this morning and I am so thrilled. This is the first one I received and I love what you have created. Thank you so much. You hit the nail with all the goodies inside. Thank you so much
Comment: Anna! Thank you so much for this swap that made my day. I love everything! First of all, just your card made my day with all the butterflies - they always remind me of my Grandma.Also, the snail mail sticker on the back cracked me up. I can't believe how fast summer went too :( But I did have a great one - had lots of family visit and great parties with the people that I love. I spent most of my summer working and crafting but this summer I finally started a small business with my crafting hobby, so that was awesome. Also, my niece will be born any day now so BEST SUMMER EVER, right?! Thank you for the beautiful washi samples and I love the Disney tea you sent - i've never had one so i'm super excited to try it. Thank you for the great postcard, an amazing addition to my collection! Thank you thank you thank you!
Response: I am so glad it made you Happy!
It makes me feel good that I made your day.
Maybe we could swap sometime. I am just learning how to make pocket letters and ATCs.
Have a great rest of the week.
A Happy Swapper
Comment: The first fabric pc I've ever received! Thanks so much! Your sister does a beautiful job - I'm actually teaching a class at the quilt guild on how to make them next week and have about 10 people signed up so far. Haven't made oriental ones yet but that's a great idea! I usually end up making them specific for a themed swap or for upcoming holidays, but the coloring ones are popular, too.
Response: I am so glad you liked it. Have fun with your class. Wished I was there to take it too. Have a good week
Comment: Dear Anna, I received your letter. Your beautiful letter. Yesterday (21) arrived at my house. I am very grateful for all the dedication you put into it. During the next week I will be sending my letter of response, I'm happy to hear from you.
Many greetings from southern Chile!!
Response: Thank you and I am so glad you liked it. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Have a great week
Your Happy Mail Friend
