lynnpinkdaisy rated for ABC USA - Post card A for:: on Jul 28, 2022
Comment: I love that you made a homemade postcard for this swap. I actually love apples! And I wish I could give you more than 1 heart. It's such a pretty card!
Response: Thank you so much; I appreciated hearing that=)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely swap and goodies. I love the colors you used and that gorgeous ribbon. I have yellow water lilies in my ornamental pond. Thanks also for the generous goodies. I will certainly use them. Hope you have a good rest of summer.
Response: I am glad you like it. I was trying to do something different.
Comment: You’ve done it again, lady! Knocked my socks off! LOL! I would have been happy with just the assortment of stickles that you found for me; but to include a paper pad and all the stamps was like Christmas is July! I looove the panda bear set and can’t wait to use it soon. Thanks a million and some for always making swaps a pleasure! Hugs ❀️🐼
Response: You are so welcome; they really had a good deal the day I went in so I am more than happy to share=)
Comment: It finally came! I think the layers got the postcard held up in the mail- there was a "postage due" stamp on the postcard that got scribbled out (and they obviously chose to deliver it). Anyway, thank you! I love the bee, and the postcard overall is really cool! Thank you!
Response: Oh, no!! It took that long to get there? I sent out several post cards like that & everyone received their swaps ages ago. I've noticed over time that it does take post cards longer to get delivered. It is our wonderful mail system at work! Glad you liked the pc, though!!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful tag! I love Lily-of-the-Valley and like how you put the sparkle on the flowers, etc. I like the vintage look and the cute, little charm! Thank you for all of the wonderful goodies especially the hedgehog stickers! The hedgehogs are so cute!
Response: You are so welcome! Don't know what was going on with the Post Office on this one!!
