The little silver gem fabric (?) you sent is honestly fun to play with, I enjoy how it feels in my hands... weird, I know lol. Thank you for such wonderful happy mail!!!

Response: Misty, am so happy you loved the ATC, I sure love making them. Like you I love Alice in Wonderland just bought my first set if stamps from Etsy will send you an Alice ATC. Thanks for the 5 heart rating, much appreciated. AnnaL.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty Paris ATC! I appreciate the extra little stamped images as well. Honestly, I was leery to join in this big of an ATC swap in general, for fear of receiving “substandard” ATCs. However, having received yours before all others, I am feeling much better about the swap. You did a lovely job of incorporating stamped images with a bit of fabric/trim, a seed bead, and embossing to create an ATC that’s pleasing to the eye and not too-busy. You’re always so pleasant to be partnered with! Thanks again! 💙😉
Response: Harmony thanks so much for all your kind words, really made my day. Am so happy that we have been paired up in previous swaps, yippee. I really appreciate you & your crafty hands. Have a wonderful week, AnnaL.

Comment: I almost always give hearts. I have to say, this tag looks rushed. It is just 5 stickers on a tag, really, and one of the stickers is loose. Also, the description says to use nice paper and spruce up the back. That wasn't done.
Response: I must say I dont use stickers ever, I stamp images, color them using markers & fuzzy cut them out. Am a stamper from 1980 & stamp alot. The stamp set I used for your tag was from Stampin Up. Thanks for the rating, much appreciated. AnnaL.
Comment: I apologize for the late rating. This was forever ago but a lot happened in a short amount of time and I totally had to disappear for awhile. I am so sorry. Hopefully the heart will help a little. Thanks so much and I apologize again.
Comment: Hi Anna! Thank you so much for a very beautiful Moulin Rogue ATC and all of the goodies. I love everything. Thanks for making this such a special swap for me. I love this era with all of the culture and art. I hope you had fun with the theme. Take Care -Vanne

Comment: Very classy mini PL and I love the goodies you included too! Raspberry mint tea sounds delicious, I love cherry designs so that washi is terrific and ooh what adorable tiny fruit confetti - such a fun swap, thanks!

That woman with makeup on is so pretty. My husband thinks one of the little girls looks like me as a child. Where in the world did you find those? I really like the washi on the envelope. Thank you so much.
Response: I found the photo strips from Tim Holtz at JoAnns but they also have them at Hobby Lobby, use coupons of course. AnnaL.

Comment: Wow. This was perfect. First, that card is beautiful and just my style. I picked up my mail on the way to my mother-in-law's house in another state. She was injured and needs someone to care for her. I need stress relief...in the form of a hot cup of tea. Thank you! This could not have come at a better time.
Response: Happy you enjoyed the Christmas card & tea. Many thanks for the 5 heart rating, so sweet of you. Have a great week, AnnaL.
Comment: I love the funny cute turkey telling me to eat more ham. Where did you find that? The tag is so pretty. I also really like my milk and cookies note papers. I was also thrilled to see that you were my partner. I hope all is well with you dear friend. Happy Thanksgiving!

Comment: Anna! Heyyyy I still have that HEB bag and I think of you all the time whenever I take it out to use. Thank you for that and for the awesome washi samples. I have the cats with hats but all the rest are new to me. I love the envelope washi too. I'm going to see if I can get it off and save it too. I keep my washi samples in pocket pages in a big notebook binder. I hope you are doing well. :)

Comment: Hi Anna, Thanks so much for all of the fun goodies! The kitty notepad sheets are so cute. Always 💖 anything by T.H. Enjoying the stocking card and puffy stickers. Thanks again and have a Happy Turkey Day🦃
Comment: Thank you. I'm a little disappointed as the envelope was supposed to be 'filled with Halloween inspired goodies'. The things included in the envelope are not Halloween. *Update 10/29/18 - Anna sent Halloween goodies to make up for not including Halloween themed items the first time. Thank you so much, I love them :)
Response: So sorry about that, I will mail you some Halloween goodies this week. AnnaL.
Comment: I absolutely LOVE the goodies you sent me!! 💞 the ribbon is my favorite!!! I look forward to making Thanksgiving ATC’s with the napkins you sent. Thank you so much for everything, I love it!!!
Comment: I love the PC! I just bought the giant coffee-table book this PC came from a library book sale for $2! Best buy I've had in a long time! Enjoyed reading about you and the family and I need to get to Austin soon! Thank you!
Comment: Totally awesome swap. Love love love the ACT, I am beginning to love mermaids. Your work fabulous. I can see and sense you wonderful work. Thank you OMG for the beautiful goodies. I have never seen owl ribbon and wash - BUT the wooden Owl tag - well outstanding definitely a new favorite. Thank you so much

Comment: It's been raining all day and it looks like our post master took no care to keep our mail out of the rain; the swap name survived but the rest of your message is a blur :( Thank you for the bluebonnets though, my mom is from Texas and it's one of the natural beauties of the state.
Response: Thanks for the 5 rating, much appreciated. Have a great week, AnnaL.
Comment: Thank you for the washi decorated envelope. I love the French tapes and the pretty stationery you wrote on. Also thank you for the cute bird stamps and neat photo booth cards. The one of the couple looks very similar to a picture of my husband's grandparents!

Comment: Thanks fir the nice letter and the extra goodies! I want to learn how to make ATC cards. They look fun. I really should take a sewing class myself. When I used to sew some it really was kind of relaxing. However, I don't think I like the "rules" of the patterns. Maybe I don't like not being in control either. Hope you are blessed! Thanks again, Holly
Response: Hi Holly, glad you liked my letter and the goodies. Someday I will face my fears over the sewing machine and take a beginners class. Thanks for the rating. Have a great CRAFTY week. AnnaL.
Comment: Got your second try, she is still not paper pieced, but she shows a lot more effort. I really appreciate you trying again and I like the way you used pop dots to create some dimension. I have not tried painting any of my Prima dolls yet, but I got some Prima watercolor pencils and paper to give it a try. Thanks again:)
Response: Thanks for the rating.. I highly recommend watercolor paper pads from a Hobby Lobby great quality & very reasonable prices. Stamp images with StazOn ink pads this ink dries fast and works great on watercolor paper. AnnaL.
Comment: Thank you, next time I suggest you put the swap name on the PC. I had to search to be able to rate you.
Response: Am putting my name and name of swap on everything, thanks for the advise. Have a great week. AnnaL
08/30 Host of this swap looking into this rating in ERROR. You only get a 1 if item was not received, and CLEARLY IT WAS!
Comment: Until recently staying in due to the heat wasn't an option because my house was just as hot. LOL Now I have a new home and a/c. With it being 105+ outside by noon I'm absolutely staying inside now.
Response: Enjoy your new home. Craft On and thanks for the rating. AnnaL.
Comment: Hi Anna! I didn't realize I was partnered with you! What a lovely surprise and the goodies and card are so beautiful...thank you! :) I love that you personalized the card. I thought that was special.
Response: I knew you would be surprised when you received a package from me. It was hard not to tell you ahead of time but I really wanted to surprise you, and it worked, yeah.
