Comment: Hello and thank you for forwarding some cool ATCs to me. It's fun to see how differently everyone packages their "bag." Annette's is cool. Thanks again. (p.s. your envelope was machine processed and it came through just fine.)

Comment: Arrrghhh! Drop anchor and sit a spell while I regale ye land lubbers with tales of my seaworthy new ATC. He’s a manly man with tattoos a plenty and a salty demeanor that suits him to a T. And now he has shanghai-ed my heart. I’ll never wander far from the shore with him in my life; content to be shackled to my handsome sailor ATC forever. ❤️ Excellent!👍🏻
Comment: Thank you for another gorgeous fish for my collection! I love your style -- so many layers and such wonderful, magical colors. And the subtle black and silver sparkles are perfect! <3<3<3
