Comment: Debbie (my birthday twin!), thank you for the cute ATC and lovely die cuts. The card is amazing..I love the pineapple! I've been in Michigan for almost 2 years. I needed a couple of surgeries, and my sister offered to put me up and take care of me during the recovery, and I'm still here! I made it through the polar vortex, and I can't imagine anything worse that Michigan has to offer. It's a beautiful state, and almost everyone I've met has been wonderfully welcoming. I miss the PNW like crazy, though...it's in my blood. I will return home at some point, for sure.
Comment: Hi Debbie! Thank you for the wonderful dragon fly ATC coin I received from you today. Love butterflies and dragon flies so this was extra special. And thank you for all the extra ATC coin papers - those shall come in very handy!
Comment: How cute!!!! I just love this atc! Thank you also for the paper dolls with her. My daughter and I are going to have fun coloring them in! I love the back of the ATC!! Super clever and cute. Thank you so much!
Comment: Hello, so nice to trade with you. Thank you for the awesome cooking themed vintage card and the extras! I've had my family here all last week but ready to be outside. It's finally warn and sunny the next few days!
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I love these! What kind of machine do you have. I haven't really made friends with my Cricut yet and I haven't perfected the intricate designs with the Big Shot yet. I wish I could give a million hearts!
Comment: Hi Debbie: Thanks for the really cute snowman ATC =- love the image you used. And thanks so much for all the extras you sent as well - did you die cut the ornaments or buy them that way? They are so delicate and pretty! Laurie
Comment: Thank you for the swap! The envelope was very pretty and at least half of the teas are to my liking :) Only minus is that I think the stamping that you did on the foam thing inside made the tea packaging and the paper scraps a bit dirty as the ink had gotten off or something.
Comment: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the green dragonfly ATC. You paired it with purple...my favorite color combo!! I also love the very large dragonfly embossed cutout. Whatever do you have to be able to make that?!!!
SO COOL! Thanks for everything! --Chari
Comment: Thank you for the colorful ombre butterfly card, Debbie! (That is my high school class mascot :) I hope the rain lets up soon -- here, the heavy rains and flooding upstate were followed by wonderful crisp weather. Happy Tuesday!
Comment: This is a very beautiful Postcard and my first handmade one. I like it so much I think I shall start collecting them! It reminds me of a really neat tag :) I especially love that you sent it in the Sleeve to keep it safe; I have them for may 5 x7 cards but I will now get them for post cards:)

Comment: Thank you for your decorated enelope! It took me some time to find you, because you didn't put a note in the envelope with the swap name and your id. Luckily you put your return address on the back so I knew your name :-) Thank you for taking the time to make this piece for me!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely ATC, I especially like the rich colors...all the extras are wonderful as well! The envelope looked as if it had been through battle, both side edges had been torn...but it won home in the end brave little envelope!
Comment: Thanks for a great challenge envelope, I like your mixed media approach..! The generous gift of the embossing plate is much appreciated but as I have no embossing system I will be passing it along to someone who does... No worries though, my space is so limited I couldn't fit more things into it if I tried!
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely ATC. It won't let me "click" the heart. I'll try again later. Don't forget to have mammo this month, if you haven't already had one this year! Update: heart applied.

Edited on the 7th of October: IÂ´m a bit puzzled as today I received another envie from you... But I donÂ´t mind; I like this one even better then the first one, so IÂ´m happy to give you the heart! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for this ATC too...at first I thought you accidently sent me two ATC's accidently because I got two from you in one day, but then I realized they were for two different swaps. Thanks!

Comment: Thank you for the two wonderful ATCs. The color palette of pink and brown is beautiful and I love the vintage feel of the little girl. Thanks for the paint chips and the extra embellishments (the copper frames are fabulous!) <3
Comment: you don't know how surprised I was to get your ' OREGON' ATC today. You see I am a transplanted Oregonian. ha ha I grew up in Douglas county. Near Roseburg. What are the chances I would get you out of the other 49 states.? I gave you a heart, I was so happy to see the ATC Very Clever. I spent many hours at the fairground when my kids were in 4-H and involved with the Rabbit show there. thanks, I hope we get paired up again in Swap-bot.
Comment: YAY!! Your beautiful envie reached me. I LOVE the extras too. I like the little glittery cupid heart a lot. Those dazzle stickers will be fun to use on my mail art or as extras to send people and keep some for myself :-)
Comment: Received your STUNNING envelope today - thank you so much! :) It was such a pleasure to receive in the mail! The trees are just beautiful and perfect for me! Lovely choice of stamp, too. Thank you very much for all the die cuts/punch outs as well! They are right up my alley and I am so happy! Thank you :)
Comment: The butterfly envelope was beautiful, I loved the warm brown color. The papers inside were great as well. I have already used the candy paper for a birthday card, it was just what I needed. Thank you.
Comment: WOW, Debbie! This was a gorgeous envelope and you really put a lot of artsy effort into it, and used special postage stamps too. Thank you so much - I love it!

Comment: Debbie, they're beautiful! You are just the best swap partner ever...not only wonderful little pieces of art and truly great extras, but your envelopes are to die for. I save them, you know, and have been known to reuse portions of them for other swaps. You're incredible!
Comment: Love the embossed envie!!! What did you do that with? My largest emboss folder is only a little more than 6 inches long! And the extra envies and recipes are awesome and much appreciated!! Thank you!!
Comment: Oh, so beautiful, Miss Debbie! Your work is always so detailed and over-the-top pretty...and those extras are to die for! I can't wait to use the honeycomb stamp, and those kitty images...well, I don't know if I'll be able to use them on something I send away. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Comment: Thanks for the ATC! I love seeing how people take an idea and do completely different things with it. Mine is different than yours, but yours is so cute. I also liked the paper you sent with it, I'm sure it will be quite useful. What are they from?
Comment: Thanks! You did extra-special and sent me two! Thank you so much! I have been to Grants pass and rode the Hellgate Jet Boat! What a fun ride and what a beautiful river! Lucky you! Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
Comment: WOW, Debbie!!!! I won't have to make any die cuts for a year - so VERY generous! The metallic birdcages, birds, swirls, pine trees, cute little squirrel, ornaments, etc. are already working their way into projects!!! I love the stickled tree and your envelope was just spectacular. Thanks again for all the goodies and for joining this swap!!! Happy summer to you -
Comment: Very beautiful envie. You did a excellent job decorating it. Thanks for the healthy recipes for kids. I'm going to pass them on to my daughter. She's into healthy and they sound like something she would serve and my 3 yr old grandson would eat. Thank you.
Comment: Heart, heart, HEART, Debbie dear! As always, your ATCs are beautiful, intricate, and give me many wonderful ideas for future ATCs of my own making. And the extras are so thoughtfully chosen, and so gratefully received! Mwah!
Comment: Oh, Debbie...wow, wow, WOW! You put me to shame with the incredible box of beautiful things! And that's not even mentioning the Diamond Jubilee ATCs, which (as expected!) are simply gorgeous. You have such a beautiful way of expressing yourself artistically; I am SO happy that you "found" me and made me your friend. From the bottom of my heart...thank you. You are wonderful.
Comment: Thank you for the creative pink and brown ATC I like the simple lines with all the sparkle! Great concept that stands on its own for the theme... I mean it could be for any pretty theme... I struggled with my own... finally did a fashionista in a raspberry truffle dress for" summer collection 2012) These color only themes seem so simple until you sit down to do them... But i enjoy the challenge. Yours is great! Thank you for sharing. Betsy
Comment: Woo Hoo!! I seem to have hit the honey hole with all the ATC's you sent!! Thank you so much!! ^.^ Just watch the weight, I suppose. It was an extra $1.05 once it got here for shipping, but I didn't mind, as it was stuffed with goodies! Tee Hee! =)
Comment: Debbie, thank you so much for your beautiful pc's you sent to me for National PC Week, they were beautiful. I would like to know if you want to become pc penpals, please let me know. thanks for putting your return address on the pc too, I am going to send you a pc for a thank you. robin
Comment: Thank you very much for a beautiful Bingo theme ATC--It is beautiful and gives me a new idea of a pocket on an ATC! It is so definitely Tim Holtz style. I'm going to enjoy having it in my collection!
Comment: oh my oh my, I just love this book you sent to me. You said it was your first, girl it is awesome. you did a great mini. I can't stop looking at it, thanks for all you did to make it special. Blessings and have a Happy Easter :)
Comment: Thank-you! I love the layers and detail! You really should sign your ATCs,though (with your name,etc.) as they are works of art and I like to see who made them when I am looking at them in my binder! :)
Comment: What a beautiful butterfly kite. LOVE the kite strings!! :-) Thank you so much for the extras. WOW I needed these sooo bad, you must have read my mind.
Cannot get over how beautiful this butterfly is. Thank you!!!!
Comment: Thanks! Were you intending to make a pun, or did my mind just go to "prickly pear"?
FYI: i have found that "white out" pens work really well on black and dark paper - even better than the white paint pens.
Comment: I just received the two ATCs that you sent. They are very lovely. I really like the color palette on the green one. The bird one has lovely fluid lines. Thank you so much for sharing them both with me.
Comment: Great bear card! Makes me wish to be at the family cabin in Lake Tahoe (I'm from Sacto!) As of last week, there was STILL no snow there, everybody is freaking out! But we still have bears trying to break in the cabin! oh, and the lottery tickets are so funny, my Spanish friends enjoyed looking at them!
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely ATCs! I love how some of them have a tiny bit of depth to them; that's a very nice touch :) Thanks for including the old envelope, too... sigh. I am so frustrated right now, both with the Hungarian post office for not recognizing the address, and with swap-bot for not letting me enter my address properly. Oh well... at least your ATCs did some to cheer me up! Thanks again!
Comment: No room to add all the hearts I want to give you for your cards!!! "Giddy Up Girlfriend" captured me and I don't think I can ever give that one up. I want to frame it!!!
Also love the Sunshine card, horse templet, and boot tag sooooo much. You out did yourself.
Thank you so very much!!!!
Response: your so welcome glad you liked the card. can't wait unitl next swap.
Comment: Hi! Your ATC is amazing as usual! Thanks so much - the refi is still being worked on - sigh! It has cooled off a tad here, so that is good and the boys start school next week already - I am not ready for that! Life just gets so dang busy! Sigh! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Everything I wanted...all rolled up into one ATC! Deva is (of course) adorable, and I love all the glitz and glam. She is very deserving of her name. Thanks for the great bunch of extras, too!
Comment: Hi Debbie :) LOVE your ATC!! Desi and Condor look beautiful, especially with the snow covered tree background. You probably already know, but I had to make a horse themed ATC due to my display screen on my pc broke. (still working on fixing it). Once my own pc (on my fiance's now) is fixed, I will re-do my ATC with pics of my actual horses I had. Also, thank you so much for adding the very pretty card paper. They will be VERY useful. Happy Days, Sheryl-Ransom

Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the lovely flower atc with a quote! What a great quote! I am sorry to hear that you tore your muscle - I hope it mends quickly for you! Happy Easter to you as well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Lovely! Such a beautiful dragonfly, and the colors make me think of spring, which (sadly) seems to be quite delayed in my neck of the woods. Thanks also for the wonderful extras, which will be put to good use. Debbie, you're an excellent swap partner!
Comment: Hi! I love the pot of gold and flowers ATC! You did awesome as usual! Enjoy looking after your granddaughter, as we know the days may seem long, but the years go fast! Don't you love that quote? Picked it up this week and it is oh' so true! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thanks so much! It's always nice to get something with my name on it because when I was growing up they NEVER had my name on the personalized stuff they sold in the store & I always felt left out. Loved the vintage ATC & extra papers too! I appreciate your hard work :)
