Comment: The card arrived while I was on vacation. Thank you, the Baltimore Orioles are cool.
Response: Hope you enjoyed a wonderful summer vacation. Thank you for the rating. It happened I had a US postage stamp of a Baltimore Oriole to match the postcard showing the birds together. I remember seeing these birds as a child.
Comment: Squeee! Thanks, Kathy for the beautiful horse card and stamps! It was the only piece of happy mail in my box today and I love it! (I still would have loved it had my box been full o' happy...) Big smile! = )

Response: Hello Susan! The US postage I've been saving for a PC swap with you as my partner, thought you would like the postage on the PC. I have more of these postage stamps, must color photocopy them before I use the stamps as stamps so hard to find. The postage color copies I want to use for mail art. Happy February!

Comment: Kathy, THANKS so much for the glittery Christmas card (my favorite kind) and the nice cards and airmail notes you tucked in, too. Plus the note inside was thoughtful...I enjoy reading how others celebrate with family. Have fun touring Winter Garden and Winter Park to see all the decorations!

Response: Wow, lovely gift of ratings & your wonderful comments. Yes, the little Letter Fold It Post Its were available for sale at Walmart, in the section of store having 3M Post it wall of Post It Notes. I bought a lot of them, so if you are interested in them for swaps please let me know. I've been tucking in these envelope post it notes as extras in my swaps.
Comment: Nice polar bear card. I find it funny when I don't get a newbie in NH swaps, but it's OK with me either way!
Response: Glad you liked the polar bear PC. They always make me think about Winter. Yes, that's the unusual twist about being in the Newbie Helpers group, being in a swap & chance of getting non-newbie as swap partner. OK with me too. Happy Holidays & Happy December!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely postcard. The Monet is beautiful, the additional mondern elements are clever and seasonal, and the owl postage stamp ROCKS! Your card made my day (it was a gloomy rainy day in central Ohio). I hope your Christmas is delightful! <3
Response: You are welcome. I enjoyed making the PC for you, put me into holiday/seasonal spirit. Love making frosted, glittered card. Found the Winter Animals & Owl postage stamps on eBay.com. Enjoy using them on winter - themed PCs, envelopes. Thank you for the rating. Happy Holidays, Happy December!
Comment: Hi Kathryn! Thank you for the sweet Christmas card and chat! It's always great to hear from fellow swappers about what all is going on! Your 1990's version was a fun share as well! Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Hello Vicky, your are welcome. Its time I show pictures of me, especially with Whippets. Christmas is time for memories. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful Christmas card -- I love that it is a cut-out house. And special thanks for the Florida postcards. I lived in Gainesville for 8 years (30 years ago) and remember it fondly. That is where is did my early zoo work and raptor rehabilitation. I also enjoyed some "sunny yellow" Christmases -- quite different from the white Christmases of my Indiana youth. I hope you and your family have a delightful Christmas! <3
Comment: Very nice pc, Hope you & your family had a great Thanksgiving!
Response: You are welcome, glad you liked the holiday PC. And thank you for the rating. Yes, having a good Thanksgiving weekend with my family. My bro-in-law showed movie "Jurassic World" oh his big screen TV with surround sound. He only watches this film & "Sharknado" films when I am visiting. My mom loves these movies too. My sister hides in her room to watch her fave reality TV shows. Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all of you!

Response: You are welcome! Thank you for the rating. It is the week before Thanksgiving & I'm asking my family which type of pie(s) they like best for Thanksgiving? So far selection is pumpkin pie & peach pie. Don't forget the whipped cream! Last Thanksgiving my mom didn't know whipped cream spray can was nearly empty - she sprayed me with blobs of cream! We laughed & laughed.
Comment: Hi Kathy, Your wonderful postage stamp and letter arrived in our forwarded mail today. Your ATC is so beautiful! So elegant and graceful and love the postage stamps that you used. Also thank you so much for the letter you sent. It's nice to learn more about our swap partners. You mentioned William Morris who is one of my favorite artists, along with others from the Arts & Crafts movement. His designs are beautiful and I have a number of books with his work as well as a CD with images of many of his patterns and do use them. Thank you again - it was a pleasure to swap with you and hope to do so again! Cheers - Laurie
Response: You are welcome Laurie. I'm glad to meet you in a swap, & my hope you will do some ATCs this Autumn. Love William Morris designs too, so beautiful. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thanks a lot for the card, it's beautiful! I love that song, too. Judy Garland, isn't it? Meet me in St. Louis!
Response: Hooray you received the Christmas PC! Thank you for the rating. Yes, you are right, Judy Garland sings that Christmas song "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" in that movie. Brings tears to my eyes as my late husband sang the song to me when we were dating. Happy November!

Comment: Thanks Kathy! Unfortunately the cool didn't really last. It will come back though!

But, we are optimistic as the sunshine heat is shorter with the days, the cold weather fronts return & with it coolest making more comfort. Happy Halloween! Soon its Nov!
Comment: My husband and I just got back from Key West too! We were very surprised when we saw the card because we thought it was one of the one we brought home.

Comment: Thanks for the cute card! We are due for a cold front tonight... maybe as low as high 30's but up to 60's in the day time. Enjoy your weekend!
Response: Glad you liked the Halloween PC. Thank you for the rating. Fun swap. Yes, the cold front you have moves south to us in FL. We have not so hot days, less humidity, cooler nights, 20 degrees cooler. Feels good. Happy October!
Comment: Oh Kathy what a wonderful card. I love the quote and the collage is so original and "Picasso" like. Great Job! Thank You very much. Also thanks for the neat message about your grandmother and postcards.
Response: You hosted fun swap, allowed me to create special PC for you. Thank you for the rating!

Comment: Beautiful card and the deer mouse stamp to go with it is great.
Response: Hello Swan! Wanted you to have that excellent cat photo postcard, the deer mouse postage stamp seemed to jump out of my stamp bag & onto your postcard. Glad you liked them. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful deer postcard. It is lovely! I, too, can't wait for cooler weather. It can't come soon enough for me!
Response: Thank you Marinda for the rating! Autumn leaves falling, Autumn color seems to go with spotting wildlife, wild deer in the woods. My favorite time of year. Glad I was able to spend many Autumns in the North before moving to Florida. Happy September!
Comment: What a lovely surprise arrived in my mailbox today -- lovely in every way! You certainly did "get" me, I loved everything. The green ribbon will be part of a Christmas item I'm working on right now, it's just the perfect color. I could only wish my flowers look half as lovely as yours do. Thank you for so much thought and effort to send a cheerful package my way. This is at least a dozen hearts, at least!!
Response: You are most welcome Charlotte & I'm glad you liked the mail art envelope & all the items. Enjoyed putting your swap together for you. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Hi, Kathy, thanks for this great Panama City Beach card. A lot of the people who live here in Dothan go there to enjoy the beach. I lived in West Palm Beach for 32 years before moving here, and I do miss being so close to the ocean.
Response: Glad you like the postcard, incredible view of Panama City & the Ocean, I was happy to share with you. How I miss the ocean as well. Most of my life I lived about 2 - 3 hours drive from the Bay, Ocean, Beach, but not been able to go there. And now, I live in middle of Florida, on top of a mountain! There are lovely views of the local lakes. Yes, I dream of being able to go to the Ocean, the beach some time in the future.
Comment: Thanks very much for the magnificent Bald Eagle card with matching stamp plus an OSPREY - Go UNF! I hope you are staying cool there in FL. We travel there soon and I dread the humidity plus heat. Take care.
Response: Best wishes on your enjoyment in your travels to Florida. You will find some coolness at the pool, water park, the beach. Scan the sky, look for the huge eagle nests, they are here all over the state. Yes, thank goodness I'm in the A/C. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Let me start off by saying I LOVE old buildings, so you picked an awesome card for me. :) And let me further say LOLOLOL because I am also thankful that my job is not to clean those windows. O_o
Response: Thank you for the rating! Yes, I love looking at old building too. Yet, when I traveled, with my late husband, around Virginia I was amazed at number of windows the refurbished old mansions had. Its different in the Deep South, with shutters, windows usually facing north side of a house due to strong sunshine. Fun swap!
Comment: Such a cool Christmas card. Thank you so much.
Response: Thank you for the rating & I'm glad you received my Christmas card OK thru the mail. Its tough to mail thru USPS a flat Christmas ornament. This one was flat, though fragile, & I'm much relieved it survived for your Christmas this year.
Comment: Thank you for the baby Florida Panther PC. They are my favorite North American predator! I hope their numbers stabilize, it is a species I care greatly about. Thank you also for the array of wildlife stamps, i LOVE them, especially the mountain lion one!!!
Response: Thank you for the rating! The American wildlife postage stamps I bought from seller on eBay.com. Love the baby animals on postcards. Fun swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty postcard. I love how the stamps and your address label all have the beach theme too!
Response: I'm delighted you received my PC for the swap & thank you for the rating! Imaging right now being on the beach, perhaps under an umbrella as its so hot, listening to the sounds of the waves, seagulls cry, seeing dolphins swim by. Happy Days!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful cardinal PC! I love birds, but am only able to identify the really distinctive ones -- like cardinals and blue jays! And road runners and quail when we were in Arizona.
Response: Thank you for the rating! Glad you enjoy looking at the wild birds as I do.
Comment: What a pretty place. . . although I have to admit I am not a fan of crowded beaches but it is to be expected. I like how this beach seems to be protected from the vast ocean and dropping anchor there for a night or two would be lovely. Thanks again for a great PC for this swap and have a fantastic week ~~
Response: Thank you for your rating & I hope you have a Happy Summer!
Comment: I love dolphins. . . they have such cute faces and always appear to be smiling :-) I've seen them in an ocean setting numerous times and just wish I could be with them as they fly out of the water. . . of course I'm not keen on deep water so that'll never happen but in my mind it sure looks fun!! Thanks again for a great PC for this swap and have a wonderful week ~~
Response: Thank you for your rating. How I love dolphins too. Hope I can see them again in person, love seeing them on TV programs.
Comment: Absolutely beautiful PC. I love the whites sands of Florida, and we hardly ever go. We always end up going to the Atlantic, but the beaches aren't nearly as beautiful. Thanks for always be a terrific partner.
Response: Thank you for your kind words & for the rating. Always enjoy sharing parts of Florida that are "mailable." Love the Atlantic Ocean & remember summers in July with my family at Cape May, NJ.
Comment: Thanks for the gorgeous post card AND your description was enough to for me to visualize the dolphins swimming and playing! Thanks for sharing your dream- I hope that someday you'll be able to experience it! Happy Swapping, Jen.
Response: Wow! Thank you so much for your kind words & for your rating! Was hoping you enjoyed the dreamy dolphin painting PC & my dream scape description. First time I've written on a PC of a dream. Happy Summer!
Comment: Beautiful painting!! I love it, thank you so much for joining!!
Response: Susan, how happy I was to share my famous artists art postcard with you for this alphabet swap. For "R" I found Renoir's beautiful painting showing 2 horse riders. Glad you liked this PC & thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thanks! Nice to see a Floridian send something other than form KSC.
Response: You know well what it feels like to get a same state swap partner for a PC swap - so I was glad you liked the PC showing space travel from NASA, Texas. Thank you for the rating. Finding & swapping for these PC's for swaps keeps me searching for new & different PC's.
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful waterfall from Opaeka Falls! My cousins live in Hawaii - I'm jealous! ;)
Response: Thank you for your rating! You are fortunate to have family in Hawaii. Do they send you postcards? When my Mom went on vacation last Sept she brought me back a stack of PC's from South FL & the Keys. Hope you get a dream trip to Hawaii some day. Happy Summer!
Comment: What a lovely PC. . . and I do love Mucha - one of my favorites. I absolutely love the colors and design and as drapes in a huge room with the right furniture it would be spectacular! Thank you so much for the beautiful PC as well as the information about it. Have a wonderful week and happy swapping ~~
Response: Thank you for the rating & your cheerful greeting! Yes, how I love Mucha & the postcard was a special view of fabric printed with Mucha's artwork & designs. I'm keeping it cool here in the A/C in FL.
Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous postcard and the lovely stamps :D
Response: Thank you for the rating & I'm glad you liked the big cat - leopard postcard I sent to you for the swap. This is a fun swap for me as I love going to the zoo, & have PC's for this continuing swap series. Wish I could go to real life zoo soon. Happy Summer!
Comment: Wow! I am impressed you remember what you sent me at Christmas time. I don't remember it but I am sure it is saved in my "to go in Christmas Altered book" stash. This one will join it as it is a very cool Christmas card. Thank you for the card.
Response: Thank you for the rating of the Christmas card I sent you. Yes, its an old habit of mine, to keep track of the Christmas cards I send. Actually helps me remind myself of work I've done when I have sudden onset of clinical depression. Will continue to keep the lists, have them for Valentines, Easter cards too, to help myself. How I love sending the cards. Fun early swap!
Comment: Beautiful flamingos...I didn't realize that they are not a native bird...Thanks
Response: Thank you for the rating! Yes, & I had to laugh when I first moved here to Florida & discovered that Flamingo's were "visitors!" The plastic Flamingo lawn ornament is so popular in this state that the item has become hard to find. They don't sell them in my local stores! Its OK though as my sister bought her from website on internet. And the Flamingo image & theme is on clothing & items here. Very popular. Fun swap!
Comment: Manatees are fascinating creatures. They do rather look like waterborne blimps! Thank you for a fun swap! ðŸ˜Š
Response: Thank you for the rating. Fun swap to send - the manatee PC. Found the matching manatee postage stamp from USPS "Endangered Species" (unused sheet of stamps,) from seller on eBay.com . Happy Summer!
Comment: I have seen dolphins on the Gulf side of Florida - no matter how many times you see them, it is always exciting. Sure hope your first tropical storm isn't a sign of things to come this year. Florida hasn't had a bad hurricane season for a few years now - hope that lucky run holds in 2015. Thanks for the PC! (";)
Response: Thank you Terry for the rating! Love spotting the dolphins & I'm happy I find some many PC's of them here in FL. Will we see more than Tropical storms this summer?
Comment: Kathy, the card from you just arrived and I love it! Thank you :-) May Day is a special day in this country as well, maypoles are often erected in villages. I love spring with all the flowers and trees in bloom!
Response: Thank you for the rating! Glad you like my card I sent to you, I was saving the "May Day" card for this special holiday swap.
Comment: Thank you so much for this wonderful swap! I love so much the elephant postcard and what made it extra special like icing on the cake was the sweet kewpie baby and her doggie. Talk about making my day nothing could be better =D
Comment: Thanks for joining my swap. I loved your pc Kathy. I actually have hollyhocks that will grow that high & bloom this summer. I love them. I have reds, pinks, fuchsia & black. They are gorgeous. Hugs, Susan â™¥
Comment: Thank you so very much! I hardly recognise Orlando from my last trip in 1998! wow! Thank you. Brings back memories.
Response: Thank you for the rating. Glad you've seen Orlando. Wow, has it changed since you saw it in 1998! There has been new constructions - huge ferris wheel, new rollercoaster to be built, etc. All new highways in, thru & out of Orlando, will be blending with amusement park areas.
Comment: Thanks for the hummingbirds PC and all the great bird stamps. I wish our weather was a little more like yours. We even had a touch of snow today!
Response: Thank you for the rating. My enjoyment in selecting postcards, then searching for US postage stamps to match the PC. Its a fun challenge. My secret is I buy mint unused US postage from eBay.com. Best place to search for themed postage. Fun swap!
Comment: Could I give you more hearts???? LOVED the penguin PC. I just love them and get so giddy. So you could imagine how giddy like a child I was when I received your PC and the stamps were cool too!!
Comment: Wow thank you for spoiling me with the amazing pens! You are so sweet and made my day :) I loved them all! I will be making you some ATC's with them as soon as possible. Thank you for your kindness :) I hope you will like my art as much as I liked these beautiful pens! A thousand hearts to you!
Response: Oh Liberty thank you for the rating! How happy I am you received the box of pens I made for you. Hoping you enjoy the fun of using the pens for any & all your projects. Fun swap!
Comment: Wow, granny sure knows where to vacation! I lived in West Palm Beach for 32 years before I moved here to Dothan in 2005. But, no men like that ever approaced me on the beach the whole time I was there! the ones that did were not anywhere as good looking, either.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard, Kathryn. I looked at the picture and it looked so familiar! Then I saw where it was from. I have seen it before! We visited Williamsburg back in 2003. The postcard brought back good memories! It is a beautiful church. Have a great day.
Comment: I love otters, they're so cute! Thank you for this especially cute postcard :)
Response: Thank you for the rating for this PC swap. Oh yes, Otters are so cute looking & I'm glad you liked this PC for the swap. It was fun for me to search my postage stamp collection for USPS stamps showing an otter to put on your PC, & I found 2 Otter stamps to make your PC special
Response: So relieved you received the special Panda postcard for the swap after we thought PC was lost in USPS Twilight Zone. Please keep the extra resend PC as a special gift. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Kathy! You once again outdid yourself. Great pic of beautiful white sand beaches and your handwriting once again is gorgeous! Thank you too for the beautiful stamps that fit right in to the theme! You rock! Thank you :)
Comment: Thanks for the ice-covered lighthouse postcard, it's really cool! :-)
Response: Amazing view of Lighthouse encased in ice, right after I sent you this PC on TV weather channel they showed 2015 winter view of this lighthouse covered in ice. Incredible! Thank you for the rating. Fun swap!
Response: Thank you for the rating, & thank you for listing your favorite animals on your profile. When I saw "Koala" on your profile I knew this was your PC for the swap! Fun swap! Happy first day of Spring!
Comment: Thanks so much for the gorgeous whale card! My brother and SIL are moving to Hawaii soon and I can't wait to visit...especially since there's about 5 inches of snow on the ground and still falling!
Comment: I love the card and the extra special vintage. When I opened your card I went, "Uh-oh! I messed up my first swap-bot." I didn't send a St. Patty's day card but a post card. I am going out right now and do a re-do!!! Oh my. You woke me up Kathy!!! I feel like, "should of had a V-8!" Thanks again, Jane
Response: Thank you for the rating. No, you didn't mess up, & its OK, you realized you sent PC, I'll give you extra credit & you are doing a resend. Its a fun swap!
Comment: Hi Kathryn! I am soooo sorry for the late rating! I was thinking I had seen your pc and could even remember what it looked like but than could not remember what I did with it - sigh! I am still working between two computers and it seems to not be working very well - sigh! Hopefully tomorrow when the new router and modem get up and running life will be easier?? We will see! Again I am so sorry for being late as I love the awesome FL pc!! Hope it is not getting too cold there - it was 4 degrees when I got up this morning - sigh! So looking forward to spring! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Oh my Vicky! And I don't want to disappoint you, I didn't notice until you commented here in ratings. Glad you enjoy the Florida postcards. 3 nights now in the 30'sF here in Central FL. Thank goodness for electric blanket & heating pad got me thru those cold nights. Will be sending you more news in an envelope. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Oh Kathy, those seashell stamps (on a beautiful postcard! Wow!) brought back memories!!! I remember using them to write to my pen pals in high school!! (Yes, I'm that old...!) I love shells and I always thought the illustrations on the stamps were so pretty and delicate. Thanks so much!!!! : )
Comment: Thanks, Kathryn.... what a gorgeous beach, and relatively uncrowded too. I want to be there now, and away from this winter rain! Oh, and I just noticed all the ocean oriented postage - nice!!!
Comment: Kathy you are so special. Thank you for the cute Christmas card, but mostly for the wonderful postcards of the lighthouses. These are spectacular and very old looking at the postcards.
If I could give you more heart I would and if I could get together with you I would give the biggest hug imaginable. Thank you. Hugs, Shirley

Comment: What a great envelope of stamps first off-lovely past Christmas stamps and then the insides were delightful,too! Love the vintage santa-and sparkles! Thanks also for the extra vintage ephemera! Always grateful!
Comment: I love this card so much that it prompted me to add a section onto my profile about cards from warm states! Who wants to see a snowy scene on a card from Florida?? Not me, I'll take the beach :) And I love love the postcards!! I didn't have any of them before which surprised me because I have many many elephants and jetoy cards. They're going to all get hung up on display in my cubicle :D
Comment: Thanks for the Beach postcard, Kathryn! Nice beachy stamps you used, too! Love the 29 cent-ers with the ocean scenes--my son had a puffer fish (named Puff Daddy!) who I swear had more personality than any other fish in the world. take care, and thanks again! Carol in Denver
Comment: I love giraffes! Thank you for a great card and loved the matching postage stamps and stickers too. There is a zoo here where a person can pay a small fee to handfeed giraffes while standing on a platform with them eye to eye. It's a very special experience!
Comment: Wish I could give 100 hearts! Loved the card and everything else! So sorry for my lack of communication... I have been really sick. Thank you for all your effort. It is so appreciated.
Thanks again for the wonderful treat in my mail box!!!
Response: Pam, so sorry to hear you have been ill. Glad you liked my swap & thank you for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the pastel drawing of the cat PC. I really like that you included cat stamps. Hope it's getting cooler for you. It's slowing doing it here. Still seeing people wearing shorts. :) Leanne
Comment: oh WHAT CAN I SAY BUT WOW - NEVER SEEN A BABY COUGAR NOW I HAVE I think they keep those babies hidden until much bigger I can see the adult in the shape around the eyes so many thanks for this PC hearts for you
Comment: Love the PC (sorry if the rating is a bit late). So interesting that Hemmingway lived there. I've been to Florida a lot mostly to visit family, so I've never it made it down to the Keys...hopefully I'll get there someday. Take care, Annette
Comment: Very cute, looks kinda like Wednesday Addams.
Response: Thank you for the praise of the vintage Victorian girl photo & black cat ATC I made for you. Yes, I think I was thinking of Wednesday Addams when I made the ATC. Fun swap. Love doing Halloween ATC's, swapping Halloween cards.
Comment: Thankyou for the cute cards and stickers!! Can I ask, did this card really cost $6.45 to mail? plus a 70 cent stamp? Im learning how to print my own stamps from home with a scale and am curious on cost differences...
Comment: Thank you =) I'm going to miss the Frozen-lopes ;P Watched the movie again on Monday!
Response: Lexidh, thank you for the rating! Oh, so you might miss the "Frozen" mail art? Well, ... its OK, I love the Aurora Borealis & Reindeer. Fun to swap Christmas cards at this time of year. Groan, our temperatures here in Florida to go up to 89-90F on Fri - weekend. Can hardly wait for next cool down.
Comment: Great PC - There's nothing like Florida white sand beaches. I have a lot of family that has moved there and have visited often, but have never been to the Atlantic side. They all live near the gulf. Happy Swapping. take care, Annette
Response: Thank you for the rating! Fun swap & I enjoy sending FL PC's. FL Gulf side tends to be more rainy, stormy, Atlantic side - riptides, sharks. barracudas, etc., Beach goers, swimmers, surfers take their chances when toes go into the Atlantic Ocean.
Comment: Thanks a lot! Love the St Petersburg card. It is awesome. Thanks for the Universal card! It does resemble a city and I have never been there either. I think I would rather go to St Petersburg.
Comment: Thank you Kathy. Love the postcard extra's. Nice variety of stamps on the envelope. Can't believe you put so many on there. I'm sure it would have gone through with only 49 cent stamp and not the extra 1.50 something. Appreciate it though.
Comment: Once again, thank you for the great Christmas card! The polar bear is so gosh darn cute, and the animal stamps are lovely, where did you find them?
Response: Thank you for the rating! Bought older US postage stamps, unused mint, from seller on eBay.com. I bid on seller's auctions for unused mint US stamps from past. I select postage subjects to match swaps I send out. Have older stamps showing US cat breeds, flowers, etc. Always hoping I can find unused mint US postage showing "Florida."
Comment: Thanks so much for the Miami Beach PC! one of my favorite things about swappin' are the interpretations of the subject! i didn't even think of Miami Beach! Keep up the awesome and I haven't been to MB either, Kathy! enjoy the last days of summer!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcard. I think of Orlando in the winter, when temps are below zero here in Minnesota. Even now - we had our first hard frost last night. I did not mind the heat when I lived Chennai, India. I came from and was going back to Minnesota. Stay cool! Or come visit me in Minnesota some summer - we have lovely summers.
Response: Thank you for the rating. Yes, its in the 90'sF AM & 70'sF at night with high humidity. FL is having "late summer." I'm thankful to be in A/C, can make it as cool as I like. FL's "Winter" I don't use heat, that's how I save $!
Comment: Kathy, what can I say? You went way overboard on this swap. I love all the map ones. The cavern one brought back memories as we went to several in Texas and absolutely loved them. Again thank you, you made this 2 for 2 into a 2 for 7 swap. If I could have given you more hearts, I definitely could have. You are an extradinery swapper. Shirley
Response: Shirley thank you for the rating. Yes, I wanted you to have all the Map PC's I could offer for the swap. Glad you like them.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely PC (the stamps were gorgeous, never seen those before!) :) I've actually been to Orlando years ago when I was a kid ;) We went to Universal Studios and I fell in love with Beetlejuice :D Thanks again!
Comment: Holy cow, how on earth did you match up the card on the Swap page with the one you sent to me; you are amazing!! I LOVE your story about Jetoy - makes me want to go flying with her in her red balloon! Thank you for making me smile and for sending the perfect card!
Response: Thank you for the rating. No secret, it was pure chance I had that Jetoy image on PC's to send for the swap. Amazed me too. I'm glad you liked the Jetoy PC & the story.
Comment: Thank you very much.
I never been to USA before I hope someday!
I like USS, Disneyland. I have been to USS at Singapore and have been to HK disneyland. I love the show of fireworks at disneyland very much.
Comment: Thank you the two awesome PC's :-) :-) :-) The polar bear is sweet with her babies and the PO didn't cancel the beautiful postage stamps you put on it. Is that good or bad for us collectors? The back bear PC looks like he is just down the road in the poudre river! Love the matching stamps on both PC's! You put so much love into your swaps <3<3
Comment: Thank for your lovely mail! And I'm definitely adding you to my profile as an "angel" :)
Response: Hooray! *Cheers* You received my Christmas cards for the swap in the mail! Was hoping the extra postage stamps would be OK for International mail. Thank you for the rating. You are welcome, I was glad to Angel for you. Your 2nd Quick Christmas card #24 is in the mail!
Comment: Thanks Kathy, for the great HI PC! Hard to believe it could get cold enough in HI to have snow on Mauna Kea! We still have patches, on top of the mountains around Amook Island, that are still white from snow. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: My son loves key lime pie, so it is possible that I could make this recipe! I just wouldn't do more than have one tiny bite though! Thank you!
Response: Yes, me too - I have to watch my sugar intake - sigh. You are so loving if you make a small key lime pie dessert for you son! Have seen small pans to make mini-pies, thought I might make mini-casseroles for my Mom & me. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Wow, what a beautiful close-up shot of the eagle - I love it! :oD Great bird stamps too, thanks Kathy - your pc's are always wonderful! :o)
Response: Thank you for the rating & I'm glad you liked the PC & matching eagle stamps. Eagles are amazing! I see them here in Central FL, the bald eagle looks more like a reptile with its eyes. The golden eagle is huge too. Saw stuffed & mounted specimen at Nat. History Museum - golden eagle same height has seated Whippet! Remember measuring my Whippets' heights while seated, then measuring golden eagle mounted specimen - same height! Amazing! Incredible birds. Fun swap.
Comment: Thank you for the Orlando card. I love that it is oversized. Lately I like the bigger cards. I've been to Orlando once, in 2008.
Response: Thank you for the rating! Yes, you are right, the larger Florida postcard are best as they show a better view of FL's scenes. Orlando is going to change - huge Ferris Wheel & World's Record tall rollercoaster will change our city's skyline. Imagine the views visitors will have.
Comment: Hi Kathy! I love that pc and picked up a few when I was there! LOL! So fun to get stuff in the mail that I love! The weather has turned hot, hot, hot this week - yikes! Hugs and Happy Swapping!
Comment: Love the porcelain doll pc you sent!! Thank you very much!!! Wow!! You sent me two doll pc's!!...How kind of you!! How lucky you are to have an old dollhouse with the dolls too!!..I would love to have one!! Thank you for this very cool pc too!!!
Comment: Oh wow! Thank you for all the neat goodies & especially all the killer whale stuff. They all have a special place in my collection. Thank you so much for thinking of me. You are so sweet & an amazing swapper too!
Comment: Hope you enjoyed your dinner and fireworks!! How lucky that you can go to WDW resort for dinner!!...but then you might think I'm lucky that I can go to Paris or New York or Rio or Monte Carlo being that I'm in Las Vegas!! LOL!!!...not that I do..that's the Strip!! Thank you for the great pc!!! <3 <3
Comment: Love the Deco and also the extras of post cards and especially the Crawfish fried rice. You are so kind
hope we can do this again. 100 hearts to you and stay cool and stay in. I don't go out in heat. I don't like summers nor heat. Winters are for me and falls. We are having wet damp summer and hard on the ole bones
Comment: I knew it was going to be great when I saw the Ship envie that you made for me and the amazing postage stamps. I love the postcards and how you related them to my profile. The teapot card is going in a frame and such beautiful color and design on the little memo pages. What an interesting cellphone memo pad :) I have never seen a tri-fold stationary note card so clever and a New brand of Earl Grey for me to try!! LUCKY ME â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Thank you for the rating & the heart! And now I can reveal special secret about the Special Earl Grey Tea Bag - I got if from visit to Walt Disney World Resort Hotel visit. Google: WDW "Grand Floridian Resort Hotel" - it has a Victorian style Tea Room! How I adore it & dream of having tea there! They have best tea - Twinnings' English Teas! Really love their Breakfast Tea.
Comment: Thanks so much for the awesome envie full of goodies. I love everything but have a special attachment to the shell card and the Christmas labels. This was a great envie to receive. I hope you have a wonderful summer!
Comment: Thanks for this map card--it is different then the ones of Florida that I had. My daughter and family live near Tampa and I don't like it. Can't stand the heat and humidity and I don't like water so I'll stick with Indiana!
Comment: Absolutely super choice of card and matching stamps thankyou very much,I liked the summer comment on the card and you sending the penguins to cool me down! I also liked the puffin stamp too another quirky bird :)
Comment: Hello Kathryn! Thank you very much for the postcard, I live sunset in Orlando! By the way, it seems like we have the same name, so if you lived in Ukraine (or Russian), you also would be called Katya :) Have a great summer! Katya :)
Comment: Hi Kathy! I love the pc and love Florida! We visited over Memorial Day for a mini-vacation (the Destin area) and I am returning for a longer visit in July - yipppee! I love the water and beach - so wonderful after our crazy long winter! Love the cute beach stamp as well! Thanks for the awesome Happy Mail! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Kathryn, I'm so sorry that it has taken me awhile to do all my ratings but I did receive your package. The twinchies are fantastic! I love the way that you matted them. And thank you so much for the generous supply of extras. All the best, Marjorie
Response: Marjorie, you are so welcome & thank you for the rating! You are kind. Truth is that weekend I had a fever & tried to get it under control. Two of images didn't work out - when I had fever. Then waited for my fever to break & it was OK to redo the two twinchies. Glad you liked my swap. Happy June!
Comment: Hi Kathy! Love the pc and yes, having fun in Florida is the way to go! Just got back from Destin on Monday and the trip was way too short! Love the beaches, water and best of all spending time with our kiddo! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Wow!!! What an amazing envie of stickers! Thank you so much!!!!! Lots and lots of extras! (Feeding my addiction, aren't you??) Love it all, and love the cool envelope and postage stamps you used! Just great mail all around :) I'd give more hearts if I could!
Response: Hoped you would love the PC I added Gnome to - really unusual PC with polar bear holding a car tire! Seemed to me it was "ring toss" game for polar bear to toss the tire onto the Gnome! Postal employees where I brought the PC for hand stamping, they enjoyed seeing the PC as well! Fun swap! Have a few PC's I'm going to add a Gnome to, adding fun to the PC view.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty tulip pc and flower stamps.
Response: Thank you for your kindness & for the rating. Aren't tulips beautiful! They say "Spring is here!" to me. Glad to share the beautiful flowers with you, hope it cheered your spring. Yes, the flower stamps I bought mint from seller on eBay.com. Its interesting to search, find the unused postage stamps I can use for my swaps. Especially happy when I find flowers, animals, birds, butterflies, etc. Fun swap!
Response: Thank you for the rating. Wonderful you liked the Mary Cassatt painting on the PC. She is a favorite painter of mine, wrote a paper on her in art history course in college. Cassatt's paintings are in Wash DC, I lived in suburbs for @40 yrs & enjoyed looking at the paintings, artwork whenever I could go downtown. Fun swap!
Comment: Thank you for the "Two cats in the window" pc. I love it; reminds of of "How Much is that Doggie in the Window?" I was in France 3 summers ago. DH and I did a whirlwind tour with the art department of a local college.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely oversized postcard. Makes me wish I could visit Florida this summer.
Response: Thank you for the rating! So you see - this large PC view you can hold up & imagine you are there! Right now you are avoiding the high heat & high humidity that arrived this week in FL. Have a chilled drink with orange or pineapple slice, & fan blowing on you, ... well almost FL, OK? Fun swap!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful Florida sunset!
Response: Thank you for your rating! Oh, its hard to put into words what sunsets look like here in Florida ... photos I could take & upload to my accounts, yet, its the breath taking moments of sunset with purple sky & black silhouette of palm trees.
Comment: I love flamingos! Thanks ever so much. The postage stamps are fabulous too. (Spouse doesn't want a flamingo in the garden - not even a Day of the Dead one in the fall. It would make everything warmer here, wouldn't it?)
Comment: I am rating this "extra special" because of how beautifully you arranged the postcard...The calligraphy, the pretty address label and of course the stamps! You did a great job, and I feel like I'm there after reading your description.
Response: Thank you for the rating. You are so kind, I'm glad you liked the postcard I sent to you for swap - & for the way I arrange my PC's for the swaps. Its pure enjoyment for me: the address labels from Colorful Images (can't wait until I get my own photos printed on my labels,) bought mint postage stamps from eBay.com to use to match the subject of the PC, the pens I use are Sakura pens, Zig Calligraphy pens, & I highly recommend the Sakura Gelly Pen Sets. They are fun to use. Hope we can meet again in a future swap. Fun!
Comment: Those little penguins are so darn cute - I've always been fascinated by penguins - they just make me smile. I've seen them at Sea World and just stood and watched them with a big smile on my face :-) Thanks for the great PC ~~
Comment: So, I'm not jealous AT ALL that you're in Florida. Not. At. All. We just had a horribly muggy day that ended with an hour-long downpour, but you know about those if you're down south. ;) At least we don't have gators.
Response: Thank you for the rating. Yes, sounds like you had some Florida weather. True, we can wake up to a sunny blue sky day, puffy white clouds. then grey clouds, followed by powerful downpour. It gets more interesting during Hurricane season, when we could get 50 - 70 mph winds, downpour. Reported today that black bears were seen roaming Orange County, Pine Hills area, FL. Yes, we do have a real "Lake Boo Boo."
Comment: Hi Kathry! Your pc is a breathe of sunshine after the long winter you mentioned! We will be in the Destin area in a few weeks - yipppeee! Feeling like a kid, I am so excited! LOL! Thanks so much for the awesome pc! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hi Kathryn! Thank you for sending me a multi-view postcard of Florida for National Postcard Week! I especially love that you used a "Florida" postage stamp! Hope you had a lovely National Postcard Week! â™¥
Comment: Thank you very much for the beautiful butterfly & dragonfly card and lovely note. Your ATC turned out great, and I love that you used my favorite colors! Thank you also for the extras; they will certainly be put to good use. Wishing you a beautiful springtime and lots of happy swapping!
Response: Isabel, thank you for the rating & the heart, glad you liked the mushroom ATC I made for you. It was fun, the first mushroom theme ATC I've specially made for a swap. Hope you enjoy the extras, the mushroom postage images I hope you have fun using.
Response: Hello Megan & thank you for the rating! I'd forgotten to write who my fave Toy Story character was on the PC I sent to you - It's Buzz Lightyear. Buzz, because I miss the Space Shuttle Operations that took place on Florida's Space Coast - Central FL Atlantic Ocean Coast! Perhaps in future the Space Shuttle Program will be updated & started again here in FL? Hope it happens.
Response: Again, you are so kind with the rating - surprised me - in a good way to be your swap partner for some swaps. The Tulip PC's are so beautiful, glad I was able to share them with you, happy to have used a Tulip postage stamp!
Comment: Oh how cute the stamps match the card! I sent Manatees also.
Response: Thank you for the rating & the heart! Found an endangered species postage stamp of a Manatee & wanted it for your "M" PC! I like Manatees too, hope to see one in person in future. Do an internet search for images of Manatees swimming in crystal clear waters of Silver Springs, FL.
Comment: Awesome, you matched the stamps to the postcard :D
I would probably die of heart failure if one of these popped up near me.
Response: Thank you Cindy for the rating! Know how you feel, I've promised people I know that I won't walk near ponds, lakes, keep a distance, make sure other people are around. Can't tell which place is home to an alligator!
Comment: Hi Kathryn, Thanks for the sunny Florida card... Looks like a busy place! The first traces of spring have arrived here too and that means sneezin' season. I sympathize with you - I have those allergies too!
Comment: Thank you for the extra special Swap package. I love the Sunflowers and the Morning Glory remind me of my Mother-they were her favorites. I plant the herbs on the porch so I can harvest daily. I am making tea right now:-)
Comment: WOW! This envelope was over the top! A rubber stamp set, rubber stamped images, postcards, stickers AND washi tape - all in one envelope and all items I can and will use. Thank you so much for sending! This was more like thrilled, incredibly happy mail! Oh, and your envelope was fantastic too! Well designed , sturdy, and I love the variety of postage stamps. I had never seen these US stamps before - it looked like an international envelope from the tropics.. Thanks so much for sending.
Comment: Sigh. I would love to see the oranges ripening and sit in warm sunshine instead of staring at piles of snow that are over my head and won't be gone until June. And we expect more. Thanks for the touristy postcard - I'll go, I'll go
Comment: Thanks for all the awesome FBs! It gives me a better idea of how to do them, since I'm such a newbie. I'll be happy to send some along your way in the future. Thanks again and thank you for the awesome extras :) Peace, Michelle
Comment: Thank you for the hare with a hat postcard! I love buns! :P
Response: Tough challenge for creating the PC for you for the swap - a bunny, not a dog or cat! What PC to create for you? Thanks for giving you fave colors in your profile. "White Rabbit" though had to have your colors, made view look like thru the looking glass. Did you spot the Cheshire Cat in the upper right corner? Touch of whimsy. Still amazes me I was able to bring all that together for this special handmade PC challenge. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: WHERE DID YOU FIND YOUR CARDS!?!?!?!?!?!?! I absolutely love the Mary Englebreit Valentine!!! Thank you so so much!! I haven't been able to find any of her cards around here except at Michael's, but no Valentine's ones. And I sent out the same postcards as you! Great minds think alike!! Thank you for the fabulous happy mail!!
Comment: OH! It's snowing outside and I get this nice card telling me how nice and warm it is in Florida. Boy thanks for rubbing it in LOL.The timing and what you wrote couldn't be more ironic for todays weather. I love it! ; ) thanks so much really just wait till summer when its cool here and hot there.
Comment: Kathy, Thank you for the nice Valentine Card and postcards. Those pies sure look yummy and the Florida map is a new one for my collection. I like all the cute heart stamps you used too. Very thoughtful. Hugs to you!!!
Comment: 2/1: Kathy, I received a beautiful flower envelope with awesome Valentine's Day postcards today! You have spoiled me! Gorgeous! As always, thank you for your generosity!!! ///// Thank you for the beautiful Valentine's Day postcard - beautiful stamps and stickers too!! : ) It's always so nice to receive mail from you!! Thank you for joining the swap! â¤ï¸

Response: You are welcome Nasreen, glad you received my swap all the way to South Africa! Thank you for the rating. And big thank you as I received your huge envelope in the mail! Great swap!
Comment: Yes, I would have to say that this truly is "an extra special package"! The beautiful watercolor butterfly and dragonfly inchies are simply amazing...and the postcards you included are really beautiful. Thank you for being a wonderful swap partner, Kathryn!
Comment: Hello Kathy, Thank you for a beautiful postcard.
Response: Thank you for the rating. How sad I was health problems got in my way before I sent you the PC for the swap. Wanted to do artwork like the portrait painting PC view, on the blank space address side. Sorry I wasn't able to do this before the swap deadline. Taught me to do the artwork on the PC before signing up for the swap.
Response: Thank you for the rating. I was sad health problems got in my way before I sent you the PC for the swap. Wanted to do artwork like the portrait painting on the blank space of the address side of the PC. Sorry I didn't get the chance before the deadline. Taught me to do the artwork first, before signing up for the PC swap, to feel satisfied before sending the PC.
Comment: Thank you- a pic of a Florida beach is just what I need, now that there's freezing rain at the window...
Response: You are welcome & I'm glad the Florida beach view gives you a warm feeling during this winter. 23 Dec 2013 - Central FL had record high 87F! Cooler temperatures coming for Christmas. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful Christmas card. Also, thanks for all the great postcards. Love them all. They will add greatly to my collections. Wish I could give you more hearts. Merry Christmas, Linda
Comment: Thank you so much, loooove it all!
Happy Holidays â™¥
Response: You are welcome & thank you for your rating! How glad I am you will enjoy the socks, the cocoa, the card, while you browse the 2 Card making magazines I sent along as surprise. At this busy time it relaxing, & fun to wear seasonal socks, drink cocoa & enjoy looking at crafting magazines.
Comment: Gorgeous! Simple gorgeous! Framing quality! I am so honored to get this! Thank you!!!
Response: You are welcome! And you make me feel I have succeeded at creating Twinchies. It took me some thinking - how to do the Twinchies, how to create them - squares within a square, like a window. Wow, I got it right! So now I must work again to try & create the Twinchies for Winter. Thank you so much for the rating.
Comment: Thank you for my beautiful manatee PC! It is so sad that there are only about a thousand of them left! How do they keep ice rinks in FL??? Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Hooray Sherry, my swap arrived in Alaska! It always amazes me: I'm down here in Florida, you are way up in Alaska & the mail travels quite a distance! You are welcome for the postcard. Manatees are being rescued. Their habitats are being "cleaned - up" by residents of areas where they swim. All ice rinks must be indoors, just like the Penguin special buildings at Sea World. When it gets too hot here in FL is when I wish I worked in the Penguin World buildings.
Comment: Love this vintage holiday greetings postcard that you sent. Thank you so much... Happy Thanksgiving to you!
Response: You are welcome & thank you for the rating. I purchased a special collection of Vintage Christmas Postcards - with glitter! Glad to share one with you. Happy Thanksgiving to you & your family!
Comment: Thanks for the decos and marvellous supply-surprise
Response: Hooray you received my package & quickly for International mail! You are so welcome, hope you like the Deco's I enclosed & glad to share the extras with you. More will be coming for the December swap of Deco's. Thank you for your rating.
Comment: What a cute 'kitty' card! I'm sure Data & Geordi will be sticking their noses in the kitchen when I start my holiday baking. On Thanksgiving, I'll do my 'feeding the police officers who have to work' in Apopka most of the day. Late afternoon I've been invited to friends to share dinner. HUGS!!
Response: Oh Geri, I'm so happy you liked the kitties card! And you imagined Data & Geordi watching cookies being baked. Bless you my friend for "Feeding the police Officiers" charity event. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with your friends! Gentle hug to you too. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the Christmas card of the panda. They look so cuddly but I know-do not touch. Thank you also for all the postcards. I love the one of the shuttle, it is my first one. Shirley
Response: You are welcome Shirley. Just had to send you a huggable view of a cute panda for Christmas card. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful card and stamp :-) Happy Holidays to you as well!!
edit: You sent me not one but two cards. One with a caribou, and one with Christmas greetings. Both very nice, thanks!!
Response: Surprise! Yes, I sent you 2 postcards with matching stamps - when I send postcards overseas sometimes the PC will go missing. Wanted to make sure you received a card. You are welcome. And thank you for the rating. It was a fun challenge to find the postcards & postage to match the PC. Showed the postcards to my postal employees here - they were amazed I had the caribou postcard with self-stamp on it. Makes a Merry Christmas.
Response: Hooray you received the White PC I handmade! Sending the handmade postcards thru the USPS is scary. Always hope it reaches address without damage (why I laminate the surface.) This was a tough challenge to do mostly white image on a PC. Thank you for your rating.
Comment: WoW WoW WoW what a GREAT envie I opened today from YOUâ€¦.with the best Christmas cardâ€¦. am going to recycle it to my adopted daughter in the Netherlandsâ€¦ Her name is CHELLEâ€¦.. and the added postcardsâ€¦. I just love Floridaâ€¦..and never buy enoughâ€¦..Thank you so much for a GREAT SWAPâ€¦..hugs and many heartsâ€¦.
Response: And I say Wow! You liked the envelope (the US postal employees love looking at my envelopes.) Bless you for sharing with your daughter Chelle in the Netherlands. The postcards are fun. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: What a beautiful art piece. Thank you so much for sharing it with me.
Response: Thank you for the rating & your kind words! You are welcome. The swaps you host are the best art challenges for me. It amazed me how the Woodland Faery "evolved" as I drew it. Already my mind is thinking about the next challenge you are hosting.
I LOVE the tapes you sent. I am absolutely CRAZY for the clear tape with the postage stamps printed on it--it's just beautiful! The NY tape is also really neat. I don't have many of the wider tapes so I'm always so thrilled to get some. Can't WAIT to get to those sweet silver snowflakes underneath! My hubby got out his little penlight and I got a peek at them. Your envie was also really beautiful. For a simple swap, you made this so special; thank you!
Response: Thank you for the rating! You are welcome, it was fun putting your Washi Tape Sampler together. Myself, I too love the wide clear tape with postage printed on it. Its fun to share.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful ATC you sent me as usual your work is beautiful! Thank you also for all the extras you sent believe me they will go to good use. Hearts and hugs to you.!!
Response: Lois, I was glad I was your swap partner. It has been wonderful to share with you the ATC's for the sheet music swaps. That tiny bow on the presents ATC was tough for my hands so I used tweezers to get it right. Thank you for the rating. Hope we can meet again in a future swap!
Comment: Very pretty card! My husband is loving all these Christmas cards coming into the home as he is so depressed.
Response: Thank you for the rating. At this time of Thanksgiving I'm glad to share Christmas cards with your & your husband. Its wonderful to hear your husband enjoys seeing the cards. Hope we can swap again soon.
Comment: Thank you, thank you for not one, but 3 surprises and lots of really cool, "new to me" washi tape. I'm not going to peek at the surprises until I use the tape, so I'd better get creative with the tape. Thank you for a wonderfully washi day! :)
Response: Wow you surprised me as well - thought you had seen those washi tapes I sent to you. And, I didn't realize that by covering up all the packages with washi tape I had concealed the contents of the packages! Yes, they will be fun surprises for you. You had another creative idea for using washi tape - surprise by concealment! Thank you for the rating.
Comment: just a lovely atc...thank you so much...I like using sheet music in swaps it adds a nice touch...loved loved the cards...love your state as well... we go there every year it seems!...last time was captiva and Sanibel...
Response: You are welcome. Coming for the November Deco Swap I will be sending you a "Steampunk" package (partner or not I will send to you,) Those of us who want Steampunk Deco's - I have plenty of items to share for that theme. Don't know what is available in your country?
Comment: Thank you so much! I received the cool scary card you made for me on Tuesday and good thing I was home. I had to sign for the envelope and sure glad I didn't have to go to the post office for it. Yikes! :) I love the card, the pretty envelope and the postcards from where you live. Awesome swap envelope. :D Hugs, Bonnie
Comment: Love the Florida Map postcard! We're fans of visiting your state and will be over there for a family trip and half marathon next month :D Hoping the weather is a bit cooler tho, lol. San Francisco temps tend to be stuck somewhere in the 65-70s all year around!
Comment: Love-love the kitties on this PC-the black one on the front has the "cattitude" of my black kitty! Thanks for sharing!
Response: You are welcome. Really enjoyed making your cat collage postcard. Love cats with "cattitude!" "Too Cute" is my favorite TV shows on the weekend when I do most of my artwork. Thank you for the rating!
Comment: Hi Kathryn, Thanks for the great FL PC! My sister lives in Venice, on the west coast. She loves the heat, while I love the cold! LOL Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Sherry, great news - my FL map postcard made it all the way up, up to you in ALASKA! From one end of USA to the other! Yipee! I prefer cooler temps, I'm a transplant from Wash DC-MD. Thank goodness for the A/C!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely gold butterfly ATC, postcards and cool handmade envy was a nice touch...What pretty stamps you used too!
Response: You are welcome! Must confess I wasn't sure how to do the Sheet Music with a Butterfly. I listened to classical music of Vivaldi, selected the special elements, carefully shaded the background & it worked best with the mini frames & a golden butterfly. Glad you liked it & thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thank you very much...great ATCs and so sorry that you had to resend, if I should ever get the original, I will let you know......thank you for all the trouble....Just had to come back and add a "heart"..the original arrived today? The mail had it someplace??? Again, thank you for all the trouble....
Response: You are welcome! So glad my resend of the Halloween ATC w/a Ghost reached you. The backgrounds I sent you - hope you enjoy making your own Halloween ATC's with them.
Comment: Thank you for all the goodies and for the beautiful envie!
Response: You are welcome! Glad you liked the items I enclosed for your daughter & you. The images on the front & back of the envelope are views of St. Petersburg, Clearwater, FL. Had to put the dolphin on it or it wouldn't be a Florida view.
Comment: You made my day today....thank you for the great decos, oriental stationery, lots of postcards w/ cute cats, great recipes, Florida attractions and for the coolest flower stickies, Hello Kitty, Words and the Serbian stamp! Wow...you really read my profile and I thank you so very much for this thoughtful package!
Response: You are welcome! This was a tough swap for me as I wanted the cactus on the ATC to have "texture" feel a little prickle. The velour pastel paper worked as prickly pear cactus! Sent you the extra sheet of velour paper so you could enjoy working with it.
Comment: What a great atc! A steampunk armadillo !!! With wings!! Fantastic... Thank you so much ... And wonderful extras... The envelope...hibiscus...thank you so much for a great swap! Ps.. I like the way you spell Kathryn!
Comment: That is very neat that you took bowling in college! For some reason I never had to get physical sports credits in college, so I never had the "pleasure" of bowling for school! Haha. Thanks for the lovely postcards - of course the cats are my FAVORITE and I love the recipe ones as well!
Response: Bowling in College, yes, back during the 1970"s physical sports credits were required! My teacher in bowling was the Soccer Team Coach! Members of the team were in my bowling class! Glad you liked what I sent to you.
Comment: Hi! Thanks for the beautiful package. I really like the envelope, it is so beautiful and thanks for the postcards even though it was ruined in the water. I still appreciate it. Actually I have began to suspect that my local postman or post office is the culprit as I have been received wet things and totally folded postcard from around the world... Okay I shall stop now sorry for the rant >< Thanks again for the beautiful envelope! :) Happy swapping.
Response: Zoey, I thrilled you finally received my swap! So sorry the envelope got wet. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: awesome!! got your package today.. with the PC as well. it arrived together.. =D thanks for everything!! i like it a LOT!! and i miss floridaaaaa... wanna go back to orlando so bad and go to hogwart!!
Comment: The envelope was beautiful! Thank you for the butterfly stickers and postcards, they made me smile! And thank you so much for the postcard you sent my son, he was so excited because "I never received a Woody and Buzz card in the mail before".
Response: You are welcome & thank you for the rating. The best news is your son liked his Toy Store postcard! Glad it made all of you smile.
Comment: Thanks SOOO much for the awesome ATC! I love the iridiescence on the swan, and the textures in the background.
The postcards were also a wonderful surprise! I love the Florida cards, and the lynx is so pretty!
Response: You are welcome. And I thank you for the feedback on the ATC, etc. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thanks a lot for the postage bag with lovely stamps to choose from.
I also loved the pc's you sent me as extras.

Comment: After a bit of detective work (and trawling through the bags of "bonus goodies") I eventually came across a couple of books and deduced that this packet was for THIS swap - I think you got carried away stuffing and forgot to jot down who it was from and what swap it was for... I shall add my details and pass them on ASAP :D Thank you for the extras, they are appreciated and I especially love the bird stamps and the postcards.
Response: CraftyLass I'm sorry, I thought I had enclosed a letter with your envelope. I'll double check next swap. Thanks for the heart.
