Comment: Update Feb 11 2020: Thank you for the resend! I like the vintage touch. Also thank you for the backgrounds. They will be used for sure! ----
I've tried to contact you multiple times via PM as also via profil comment but never got an answer. This swap is still missing. I will re-rate when I get something.
Comment: First of all, I love the envelope you zentangled! And the little card and envelope inside are just perfect for a flip card or journal! And then you added images of owls! Love it!! Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you for the flowery postcard. I grew orchids when I was in Florida as well. I'm in Houston now, and only have plants (mostly palms, a Norfolk Island Pine and a Boston fern on the patio in pots).
Comment: I do like it (even w/o colouring it in) - it was a bit tough getting the metered postage thingy off it - why would they put it over your drawing?? But, I got it off w/o much damage, thankfully.
Comment: London Calling! :) Thanks for your phone boxes! You're right, the contrast picture/pencil is great. Unfortunately some postie sticked a metered stamp right onto the picture side of the card. Took me some time but I was able to remove it.
Comment: Nice job. I really like the Picasso in the corner.
Climate change, for sure. Last time I went to FL it was in a February for a get away from the cold long weekend. It was 32F in Florida and Warner at home.
Comment: Wow!! What a fun Cowgirl Rolo. I absolutely love it!! So happy to have you as my partner. I am always inspired by your art and techniques. Thank you so much for joining the swap. Talk to you soon -Vanne
Response: American southwest is one of my favorite themes. I even have an American sw altered book. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Shelly, thank you for the great turtle postcard. We have the huge loggerhead turtles that come on the beach and lay there eggs. Yes, it is amazing how the little turtle hatch and find their way to the ocean. Shirley
Response: Thanks for the rating. I just love the turtles.
Comment: Oh my goodness Shelly what a wonderful selection of ephemera. You included so many cool things and types I am really going to enjoy using all this. The napkin is pretty and thank you for the material pieces as well. I love it all thank you Shelly for an amazing swap! 💕🦆🦅🦉🕊💕

Comment: Shelly, I apologize for the late rating. I'm not really myself lately, and unfortunately I've dragged my swap partners to the "dark place" with me! Thank you so much for the beautiful Valentine 4x4 page...I love all the gorgeous pinks and reds, the cherubs, and in fact every single detail! Thank you also for the sweet supply of ribbons and wash; they are different than any already in my collection, and I love them!
Response: Donetta, I hope I was able to bring a spark of sunshine yo your life! Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Hi Shelly! Your Ice Skaters VJP is just lovely--so many pretty layers. I love that you 'matched' the snowflake pattern throughout with the embossing, punch, and paper--really creative. Thanks so much for the special little papers you included--those seed catalog images mounted on pink cardstock are beautiful and who doesn't love VERY vintage French paper?
Response: Thanks so much for your rating and kind comments. I love the size of the VJP pages. They are so much fun to make. Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you so much for the super cute snowflake ATC. Thank you, also, for the extras. I made the hot cocoa recipe you included and it was decadent and delicious! Perfect for these freezing, Michigan days!
Response: Thanks for the rating and am glad to hear the recipe turned out well. Warm here in SOuth FL!

Comment: Shelly, I am thrilled to have received your first journal page in the Vintage Journal Pages group! It's lovely...I can' t wait for you to join other swaps in this group, because the 4x4 format is one of my favorites. Thank you so much for the great journal page, and for the sweet extras!
Comment: Hi there! Thank you so much for the Big beautiful Greetings from Florida card! I love it! I have family in the Destin area, so it was great not only getting the card, but being reminded of them.
Comment: Hi Shelly - Thank you so much for the very special Handmade PC. You are such a sweetheart for making based on my profile favorites. I love it!! I hope you had fun with the swap. Take Care -Vanne
Comment: Great! I got the resend today! Love the tiny little collage background you did on it and the dainty varied butterflies! Thanks also for the extra ATC background with the tiny die cuts! Thanks for sharing and thanks for resending!
Comment: Thank you so much for the tour of Boca Raton! I had to laugh - I'm well aware of the Snow Bird phenomena. I was stationed in Florida for a while but more importantly, my grandparents (and several of my friends now) are definitely Snow Birds...though my friends aren't quite that old. :D And yes, I'm well familiar with Newton. :) Small world. I really loved the jellyfish too. Thank you, again, for the great swap! xoxo
Comment: Wow! Thanks for all the fantastic stuff! I was having a really bad morning and I felt the need to open up everything immediately upon receiving your package! It made my day, but I especially LOVE the plush spider!! Thanks so much for such great items! DId you make the bat cards? They are fantastic!
Comment: Thank you so much, Shelly! I absolutely LOVE what you sent! I can't wait to incorporate most of it into my journal - the row of bat punch out, the punched out bat with the swirled tendrils above it....wonderful! And that Halloween flower made from circles - how clever!!!! I will be making those too, now that you've given me the idea!
Comment: Shelly, this ATC is lovely. I am so impressed by people (you!) who can draw things that actually look like the item they are drawing...I have no such skill. I look forward to swapping with you again!
Comment: Thanks you so much for the lovely ATC! I love the delicateness of the blue you used. And I always appreciate sparkle!!! Thank you as well for the awesome birds!!! And the washi, ribbon, and orange paper scrap! Wonderful swap!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for postcard. The time and effort you put in the postcard shows. Thanks especially for the generous and thoughtful extras in the envelope. I will put them to good use. It made my day.
Response: I am so glad it finally arrived. I put it in an envelope since it was travelling so far.
Comment: Hey, hey, hey! Hooray, hooray, hooray! They finally arrived today! It was so worth the wait.. wow, you really spoiled me! I can't believe how many die cuts are in that package! I love them all...from the small envelopes with hearts, birds, arrows, shapes & banners, keys, adorable frogs and acorns, and squirrels, butterflies, fairies, tags, flowers...and some huge ones too...all so awesome! Thank you so much, it is a fabulous die cut package... Extra, extra, extra hearts to you! ðŸ’—ðŸ’œðŸ’šðŸ’›ðŸ’™ðŸ’ðŸ’œðŸ’—ðŸ’šðŸ’›ðŸ’™ðŸ’ðŸ’šðŸ’—ðŸ’œðŸ’›ðŸ’™ðŸ’ðŸ’›ðŸ’™ðŸ’ðŸ’šðŸ’—ðŸ’œ
Response: I am so glad it finally arrived. These packages did not want to get there.
Comment: Hi Shelly! Received your swap today. Got what you had finished on it and it looks interesting. Will give it some thought as i sit with it and think what i will add and then move it on. That was an interesting addition you made to the swap! Thanks!
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome card "Princess". Such a great job of color, pattern and proportion, just lovely. I am also loving Half Beast/Fairy ATC. It is so Greenman like which I love. Also the extra goodies you tucked inside are perfect. Loved it all. Hugs and Hearts, Mona
Comment: Hi Shelly . . . . Thanks for your totally recycled Unicorn ATC and the interesting ephemera bits too :-) I didn't know the unicorn was Scotland's national animal. That's very cool! Lately, there has been a discovery of a unicorn fossil, but they say the animal resembled a rhinoceros more than a horse. It's better to imagine the fabled one I think. And I really liked the drawings you made on the envelope too! Thanks :-)
Comment: Hi Shelly! Yes I did get the mushroom pc that younmailed out to me done! marvelous! Haha so creative! That was so fun to receive thank you for sending it home Shelly! Your new postcard looks exciting and I'll be happy to add something here and send it on too! Thanks for all the great ideas and goodies too! From Hubbard to Bova Raton many sunny days to you. Love your cat and dogs too! Thanks for sharing a part of you! Hope we can connect again!
Comment: Wow, what a fantastic envelope, I love it. Thank you for all the lovely birds and other thingies.
We made a bike ride a few days ago through the tulip area. I put a pic on your profile, I think we were just in time for the last fields in bloom.Don't you love the brightness of the colors?
Response: I am glad you liked your swap items. Thanks for posting the pic of the lovely tulips!
Comment: Hello dear Shelly, thank you for a beautiful postcard, so creative and happy! I love it, and birds are one of my favorites too! Tulips outdoors start to bloom around Easter, their season is coming to end now.
Comment: Thank you for the super cute ATC! I love the color combo you used. And the extra goodies were much appreciated! I'm a little envious of you for getting to live somewhere warm. We actually saw snow today. On the first of may!
Comment: Note: this was mislabeled as "Put a Heart on It", but I found which swap it was. What beautiful paper! Did you print it yourself? Really nice art work - thank you.
Response: Daisy, Sorry for the mislabel. Thanks for the 5 and the heart. The background and the foreground are hand painted papers. The foreground is a gelli plate print with my swirl stencil on deli paper.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful card! I love the splatters you did on it! :) Hopefully you get to visit Vancouver one day. Spring is my favourite time of year here with all the trees and flowers in full bloom.
Comment: Got your postcard today. Unfortunately, those nasty machines at the post office ate the turkey and half of one of the leaves. I do love the colors you used, and can only image what the turkey looked like. Thanks!
Response: Oh Betsy so disappointed. Will send you something as a RAK in near future. No fun to get destoryed pc's. Thanks for the 5
Comment: Girrrl! You deserve at least 3 hearts for that amazing envelope! I love your style! It's going to join some of my other special mail art pieces in the big poster frame in my studio.Thanks for everything you sent. Happy, happy, happy! :)
