Response: We love our cats so much1 It sounds like you do as well. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Melinda, excellent ATC. I have that same stamp of the Eiffel Tower...TH set. I love it, but it's packed 🤪 thanks for the great ATC! Pretty cool with the shrink one, so clever 🙂 And thanks for all the Christmas extras! Have a great week!
Comment: Wow I love what you did with this page! I will enjoy working in it, Thanks,
Response: My biggest problem with this page was that the matte medium I used to seal it was making the pages stick together. I hope it isn't damaged. I'm glad it arrived and thanks so much for the heart!
Comment: Fascinating. After I opened your envelope I spent the next hour and a half looking at youtube videos about deli paper crafting. Your collage card is beautiful. At first glance I thought you had used fabric fibers. Your colours work so well together. Thanks for making this for me Meba. And the note card that came with it is very pretty too. 🧡🧡🧡
Response: Thanks! I'm glad you like it. I appreciate the heart.
Comment: Melinda, thank you so much for the Stepford Swap book. It is absolutely amazing and beautifully done. I wish I could give it more hearts than one.
Response: I'm so glad you like it. I wanted you to be able to pull the recipes out instead of using it like a cookbook. That made it a bit thick, but I was pretty happy with the result. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I could not be happier with your journal! I appreciate all of the time and effort you put into not only the pages but making the whole journal from scratch! It is awesome. Your mixed media artwork is gorgeous! My favorite has to be the counting sheep page spread but I truly love every single page. Thank you so much :)
Response: I'm so glad you like it. Almost all the pages turned out as I had hoped. I'm really glad you like the counting sheep page. I sometimes have a weird sense of humor! Thanks for the heart!!!!

Response: I'm so glad you like it. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for participating in one of my swaps. I love the recipes you sent and I',m eager to work my way through all that I've gotten. My sincerest apologies about how long it's taken me to get my ratings caught up. I look forward to seeing you around the swaps. Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you so much for participating in my swap. I've received your cards, and cannot wait to try them, especially that apple cake. What a perfect recipe for the cooling weather. The cards were beautifully done and will be a wonderful addition to my bound book. Thanks again, I hope to see you in other letters.
Comment: Hi Meba! Your fun ATC came today--I love the texture from the embossing folder and the great shimmery background. Thanks for the extras, too...I especially like the embossed ones...I don't have any embossing folders myself so it's really fun to see the results in your work and these extras you sent. :)
Comment: Your card arrived today and it is so beautiful, jour story made me laugh :) and the card turned out really good. Thank you.
Response: I could hardly believe it when I reread what we were supposed to do for this swap! It was fun turning the ATC into a card. I hope that you have a use for a summer card. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart!
Comment: I absolutely love the pocket letter you made me. Many thanks for all the goodies and I learned a thing or two about Missouri too. â™¡
Response: Thank you so much for the rating and the heart!
I enjoyed this project so much. I made a list of things to highlight on the pocket letter and had to eliminate so many good ones. I'm so glad you like it.
Comment: Wow, these ATCs are so cool! I really love how you told me how they were made and the techniques you used. I may have to start doing that when I send out ATCs, because it made it more fun and interesting to read this from you--I love learning about new techniques. Thanks for being a great swap partner!
What a beautiful egg you made me. I love it. The colors, delecate work and your meticulous perfection is absolutely drop dead gorgeous. I am getting ready to make my eggs and I hope I can do as well as you did. Thank you for the goodies. I need both. YOu are so generous.
You deserve more than one heart - yoiu need ten hearts. Kathleen
Response: Wow! It would be great to get 10 hearts! I'm glad you like it.
Comment: Thank you for the nice Name ATC and the extras.
Response: I'm glad you like it. I really tried to do a beautiful hand lettered card for you. I received some books on hand lettering for Christmas and have been practicing. Unfortunately I hated them all. When I get good at it I'll send you one that I like. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Lovely ATC youve sent! Thank you so much! I have wanted an embossing machine because it makes for such a nice background... but alas, they are tooooo expensive. So, I admire your all's cards instead! Happy swapping!
Response: I'm so glad you like it. I use my Sizzix Big Kick to emboss and die cut and I don't know what I would do without it. For me, the major expense wasn't the machine. It is wanting every possible thing that go with the machine! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I really wish I could rate with more than 1 heart. This ATC was amazing, I love the notecard (which I'm going to use in my art), the envelope is lovely and will be reused, and I appreciated the goodies. Fabulous!
Response: Wow! What a nice rating. I love those notecard too and am so glad that you are going to use it in something else. The paper is lovely. Thanks os much for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the stunning card. I'm currently trying to find a frame for it.. My partner loves pecan pie. I can't wait to try the receipe.
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart. I'm so glad you like the card and that you had a chance to make that tart. I like it so much better than pecan pie and I love pecan pie!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year!
Comment: I love what youve sent! The handmade card feels so heavy and nice in my hand! Thanks a ton! Actually, where I live, is referenced to as the "banana belt" of the state. Resulting in less snow than the rest of the state. We had some this morning as a matter of fact!
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. I'm so glad you like the card. I really enjoy making cards and cherish the opportunity to share with someone who appreciates the work that goes into them. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Whoa... that's weird. You got randomly assigned to me in two different christmas card swaps. haha!! Well, thank you for TWO I guess. :D
Response: I signed up for as many as I could because my husband loves Christmas cards. I was trying to see how many we could get through Swap-Bot. I hope that you like both that I sent. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Such a beautiful card! Thank you so much; I'm sorry for the cry of wolf, it came in today's mail. Our mail up is so predictable...thank you thank you if I could give you more than one heart, I for sure would!
Response: I'm so sorry it took so long to get to you. I'm glad you like it. I love making little scenes.
Comment: Thanks for sharing your answers. I think I have some tips of what to read now :) And I was surprised to see that you liked "The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared". I haven't read the book, but saw the movie last year. Loved it!
Response: Thanks so much for the rating and the heart! I really appreciate it. I loved "The 100-Year old Man...!" I didn't even know it was a movie and now I'm going to have to see it.
