Comment: Hi Elaine. I really like the ATC. I love the fact that you hand carved the saying...very impressive! The gingerbread men are great and I will be able to use them on cards in the future. Also, the note card is rally pretty!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was a fun ATC to do.
Comment: Love the tag you created. I tried to cut some images out of the napkin and got pretty frustrated with it! You did an awesome job cutting out the bird. This was a lot of fun, thank you for joining in. Thank you for the extras.
Response: I used a pair of tiny, sharp scissors that I hardly ever use because they are so tiny. I am glad you enjoyed it. I will send you the photo I took via email.
Comment: Elaine, I’m almost envious of all your upcoming travel. It sounds incredibly fun! I wish you great happiness throughout your adventures. Yellowstone is on my bucket list as is Ireland. Safe journeys!
Edited to add a thank you for the beautiful heritage art card. The wild mustangs are magnificent.
Comment: Thank you for the great coins you created with Tim Holtz stuff, I just love his color palette. The contrast of colors you chose is perfect. Thank you too for the new gray wolf pup pc for my collection, he's adorable!
Response: I am glad you like the coins. They are only my second and third attempts, though I have made many Artist Trading Cards.
Comment: Oh wow! Thank you so much for such a lovely card, it's gorgeous, I love it! The snowflake stickers are awesome too, almost as pretty as your card, which seriously made me SO happy!! Thank you so much! And thanks for the compliments on my English and for commenting on how it's warm down here, not a lot of people realize that, so I truly appreciate you knowing it :) Hope to see you again in another swap, have a very merry Christmas, I loved receiving mail from you, thank you!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is 14F outside right now so we could use a little warmth.
Comment: Hi Elaine! Thank you thank you for the great Deco! I can't wait to get started in it. And the STUNNING goldfish card, adorable little girl tag, monopoly money and the extra papers..well WOWZA lady!!! What a wonderful swap. I can't thank you enough.
Comment: What a kind an considerate thought to use the die punch button. No one hardly ever considers that part of my profile. I loved your ATC it is definitely going into my collection. I wish I could give you an extra heart. Thank you so much.......=0)

Thank you so much for your cool PC!
Comment: Elaine- you sent me actual flowers! That is SO COOL!!! I am going to plant them tonight in my flower beds :) I really like the flower cut outs also- will put them in my smashbook on my spring page. thank you for the awesome goodies!
Response: Well...flower seeds. I am glad you like them.
Comment: Thanks for the pretty envies! I love the butterfly and flower embellishments you used on them! And thanks for the Pikes Peak postcard! I went to Pikes Peak 2 years ago and road the Cog Railway to the top. So fun! But so cold!!! I was not dressed appropriately!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the envelopes. It was fun to make them.
Comment: It's a lovely card and I love the stamped sentiment! I found this swap challenging too! Thank you for the stickers too! *Edit: Meant to tell you as well, the envie you sent in was awesome! I like all the stamps you used.
Response: I'm glad you liked the envelope. It was actually one I received in a swap and the orange color caught my eye when I was looking through my envelope.
Comment: Thank you for the super cool ATC's. I never thought to use silver paint....gotta try that tomorrow! I love all 3 of them! And the print of the horse/sun...omg....did you carve those? So awesomely cool! Thank you so much!
Response: Thanks. The silver and gold paint was just acrylic craft metallic paint. I love the way they add some shine.
Comment: You do beautiful work, Elaine! I love printmaking and it's obvious you like it, too! It's one of the things that many artists never seem to try, which is sad, as it's very interesting and there are so many things you can do with it!
Response: Thank you. I really enjoyed working on these prints. I made enough extra that I have plenty to play with.
Comment: Thank you so much for the sweet note! Really touching that you made your MIL a scrapbook. My kids love to look through theirs...I try and keep them updated as they get school pictures and whatnot. thank you for the pretty ATC and the other extras! Happy Swapping!
Comment: The fact that you read through my profile and found a card that had something to do with my heritage and my culture means a lot to me. The Native American image you sent me is amazing and I appreciate it so much
Response: I'm glad you like it. I like Native American imagery as long as I feel it respects the cultures.
