Comment: Wendy, this is so pretty! I love the layering, the beautiful fairy, and the touces of gold...and the diagonal punched corners are such a lovely touch. Thank you for such a wonderful ATC for my collection!
Response: My favorite that I’ve sent you this time. I will make more just like it for myself and mom. Lol
Comment: Such a lovely gift from you in the mail. It is so fun to learn the different animals along with habitat. Your representation of the Tern is so beachy and lovely. The colors are so unique and the specimen detail was perfect for this application. The background is done with such balance too. I just love it. Thank you for the extra bits too.
Response: I am in love with layering backgrounds at the moment. So glad you are pleased.
Comment: Thank you, Wendy, for the lovely PC of the Elliott Bay Cafe. It just so happens that my favorite TV character Frasier, whom I watch every single night, lives at Elliott Bay Towers on the Counterbalance! How nice is that! 💜☀️✅♬💖🎷🥁. Oh the synchronicities of life! Awesome!
May your life snap, crackle and pop in the best of times and boundless happiness! Vita Lynné. ♫🎸🤎💞💜

Comment: Hi Wendy and thanks so much for the very cute paper doll journal page. This swap was such great idea and a good way to use up some of my huge stash of TH paper dolls.

Any way, it's really a cute page and I thank you so much for such a great swap!
Response: thanks for the great rating. Have a wonderful week!!

Response: I was worried the black embellies would be too bumpy. So grad you loved it!!!
Comment: Another beautiful swap! Wendy, these are so pretty and shabby sweet. LOVE the roses on each one. Thanks for the cute little labels, too. Like you, we just got done with 4 days of L O T S of rain here. I like the rain, but 4 full days? Not so much!

Comment: HI Wendy and many thanks for this beautiful summer journal page. You've created some wonderful layering here with the different background papers and then with the great variety and color of the ephemera that you added. The hints of sparkle and the gold trim at the top just set it all off. And thank you for another really cute little ticket embellishment - love those!!
Response: I’m so glad you liked it. It was so fun to create. I’m just about out of those little ticket embellies. Guess i’ll have to make something new!!!
Comment: Hi Wendy and thank you for the pretty butterfly fairy tag. I was happy I took the advice to look for images on Pinterest because there were really some pretty ones, and I love the one you chose. I like the other vintage looking embellishments you added as well as the flower at the top. Thanks for a great swap and for the cute little ticket embellishment!
Response: The flowers instead of a hole and ribbon just spoke to me with it being a butterfly fairy!
Comment: Wendy, this is such a beautiful album...thank you so much! It's not really spring here...more like summer, with the dreadful heat and humidity (I know you suffer from this more in FL than I do in MI). Thank you for sending me such a beautiful album, crammed with even more beautiful elements!
Comment: Hi Wendy! Your ATC turned out beautifully and I love the fairy you chose for your card. I had considered using that one because the purple colors are gorgeous! Beautiful music background, too. Your work is always so nice. Many thanks!

Comment: How I love this color combination, and the truest representation is, of course, pansies! The sweetest flowers, each with a little face. Thank you for another wonderful swap, Wendy...my pansies are blooming now, and I'm in love all over again!
Response: I love yellow and purple pansies too!! You have more mail from me on the way!!
Comment: Wendy! Awesome journal page! I too love Bostons. The soldier/dog relationship is a special one...what an evocative image. I am immediately going to steal the idea of using a postcard (of which I have many) for a backing. Thanks for such a thoughtful swap!
Response: ah thank you . I had a hard time mailing that one out and not keeping it!!! lol. I may one for myself still!!!
Comment: Hi Wendy and thank you so much for the lovely ATC with buttons and lace! Love this soft color palette that you used and I like how youkind of divided it into two halves with the flowered piece running up the middle. Very pretty!! And thanks for the cute little dangles as well!
Response: You are welcome, I loved the color palette on that one too and wanted to keep it. lol.
Comment: Hi Wendy and thank you so much for the cute and perfectly coordinated library pockets.

And thank you for the dangle - I shall assemble it and find a fun place to use it! Cheers!

Response: You are so welcome, those dangles are so addicting!!
Comment: Hi Wendy, This is such a beautiful way to use this lovely theme from Graphic 45. The colors are so feminine and beautiful together I love the trim, ink edges and glitter. Thank you also for the extra pieces. I'll look forward to swapping with you again soon. Take care, stay well.
Comment: Hi Wendy and thank you so much for the beautiful neutral tag with buttons and butterflies.I love the tag without any decoration - really pretty and soft subtle papers you used. The lace trim with the buttons and the little strip of rhinestones at the bottom and perfect touches. And I love the glittery butterflies! They are so pretty! Did you add the glitter yourself or did you find them that way? Gorgeous tag and thank you sooo much!
Comment: Warm Winter Greetings neighbor,
Thank you for the Christmas card, and the butterfly inchies.
I've been away from home (in Tampa) since after Thanksgiving & it was like Christmas morning when I opened all my swaps since then.
a very Happy New Year to you!
Thank you for hosting this wonderful swap!
Comment: I'm sorry, but I messed up and rated your skater pc on the Quote PC Swap USA #16 instead of the Quote PC Swap USA #15. I hope it's okay that I rate you for the #16 on here. If not, let me know and I will switch them around.
So . . . thank you for the bubble postcard. Love the polaroid look. The bubble reminded me of traveling through eastern WA, in the middle of no where, with nothing but farm fields around, no traffic anywhere and there was a single bubble floating along in the air. I still wonder where it came from. :) Anyway, thank you for the nice quote, too. Take care!
Comment: Hi Wendy! Thank you so much for the lovely ATC you created to fulfill this swap. The scalloped heart is such a beautiful addition to the card and I'm in love with those little silver stars at the top. Hope to swap together again very soon!
Response: I love the stars also. I have roses and hearts in multi colors. They shimmer so brightly. I am glad you like them.
Comment: I love your style! The type writer you used looks like the one I had long ago ... only mine was pink! The gold border was very unique just a really nice atc.. the extra watercolor atc was beautiful your embossing was just lovely thank you so much... best wishes
Response: So glad you are pleased with the swap. Have a wonderful Holiday!!!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty Christmas card and sweet butterflies. Bonney Lake is growing so fast, we're even have a Costco and are getting a Chick-fil-a! My favorite place here is still Ben Franklin's craft store. We love to go to Gig Harbor. Such a beautiful, peaceful little berg. I love shopping the little waterfront shops there. Small world! :)
Response: I have shopped so many times at Ben Franklins. Nothing like that store here. Artco in Tacoma is like Ben F. but has different items if you ever get a chance to head that way!!!
Comment: Hi Wendy and thank you for the wonderful 3 elements ATC #5 - I love that little squirrel and your other elements, including the mushrooms, are just perfect. Love the layers you created. And thank you for the extra special ATC! What a nice surprise and totally unnecessary. I'm so sorry to hear about your in-laws falling ill and hope they are both recovering. You had every reason to put swapping on the back burner, so please don't think your work doesn't deserve a 5 and a heart rating. It's a loverly ATC and I'm happy to get it - at any time. Take care and be safe.
Response: I am glad you loved both of them. I love making vintage and mixed media.
Comment: Hi Wendy and thank you so much for the gorgeous La Belle Epoque ATC. This was a super theme - I love this era and there are so many wonderful images out there. I love the one that you chose and how you added some glitter and bling to her. Wonderful background as well and your touch of gold embossing at the top is just perfect. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap!
Response: I am so glad you were my partner. I had a hard time picking one as there are so many beautiful choices. Have a wonderful weekend!!
Comment: Hi Wendy! This ATC is adorable! I love the telephone that you chose and the design is so authentic. Thank you so much for joining the swap and all that you are doing in the group. I really appreciate you! -Vanne
Response: I’m so glad you like it. No problem. I love hosting
Comment: Hi Wendy! Your envelope booklet turned out beautifully! Love the neutral envie and the various seed packet accents. The tag with the golden bird is so pretty and I love the little tea-bag-style tag. Really clever. Many thanks; hope we're partnered again soon!
Response: I’m so glad you like it!! I really enjoyed making it so much I signed up for the other one!!
Comment: Wendy he is so beautiful! I am really loving Big Cats right now. You must be too! The design is gorgeous and I love the colors that you used. Thank you so much for a wonderful ATC. Take Care -Vanne
Response: I picked an animal i thought would go with you!! Who doesn’t love big cats!!!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. Every time I see one of these skateboarding cards I think of my friend's son, Tristan Rennie, who is a world champion skateboarder. I hope you are doing well and staying safe and healthy, take care!
Comment: Thank you for the cool postcard. I loved the tube socks that people used to wear. I actually have a pair for the Portland Trailblazers and I wear them every game day since I am a season ticket holder. Have a good week :)
Comment: Thank you for the old photo postcard of kids playing baseball, back when kids left home in the morning and had to be home in time for dinner, having great adventures during the day. Thanks for the positive quote, too. I need to remember that one! Take care!
Response: It’s a box of 70s skaters postcards!! I love them too
Comment: The other little bird is green and his card is also beautiful! LOVE the butterfly accent and the glitter--so many people don't like glitter--I LOVE it! Such beautiful layers on this card. Thanks again for 2 beautiful ATC's to add to my collection!
Response: I had 3 bird ATCs to make this week and this delicate little bird was so precious. I just had to make an ATC with him. I’m glad you 2 of them. Birds are one of my favorite things to add to ATCs.
Comment: Hi Wendy! Two sweet little birds were waiting in my mailbox and one of them was pink! This is such a pretty card--I love the glittery bird and the to-die-for border strip--that stuff is like GOLD! Thanks so much for creating something so special for me. Hope to swap together again soon!
Response: This was my favorite ATC that I made this week. So glad you like it
Comment: Hi Wendy! Your beautiful ATC arrived today and it features one of my favorite birds: the bluejay! It has a special place in my heart because when my oldest daughter (now 37) was a toddler and I was teaching her the names of birds, she called them, 'boo-gays'
Whenever I see one, it reminds me of that special time. Thank you for creating something so beautiful for me and for the sweet extras as well!
Response: Blue jays have a soft spot in my heart also. I grew up with them. I love when they sing!!!!
Comment: I had to laugh at the Washington Monument and George's response to it. In 1988 I went to DC with my Grandma for 3 days and we saw many of the sites including the W. Monument and we went to the top - it was so cool but it was 90 degrees and the humidity and smog/fog made it hard to see very far, but hey, I can say I've been up it! Take care!
Response: Lol. I’m glad you got a laugh out of it!!!
Comment: Thank you for the Royal Botanical Garden Orchid postcard! I wish I had gotten the chance to visit while I was in Edinburgh last year, but I was so focused on the Fringe Festival that I didn't do much of anything else.😆
Comment: Hi Wendy - Thanks so much for the ATCs. So sorry that you had to re-send!! I haven't opened the envelope yet but I wanted to rush in and rate since you have been waiting so long. Thank you for being such a great swap partner! Take Care -Vanne
Comment: Thank you Wendy. I love your quote. I'm trying to pass a certification test. I failed once already and I'm getting ready to take it again. Your quote hit close to home. I won't stop until I'm proud. Thank you so much
Comment: Thanks for this excellent birdie collage! The reverse is just a beautiful as the front! Please remember to put the swap name on your pieces. Thanks too for the mini-birdie-ephemera! Happy New Year with Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Oh my Wendy you made such a beautiful ATC! I love the lady image along with the cute sewing machine and the adorable mannequin of course with my favorite vintagy vibe💕. The card is beautiful as well as the matching envelope. I luv you attention to details, thank you so much for a beautiful swap💖
Comment: Hi Wendy . . . WOW . . . your ornament is really gorgeous! I love the glittery finish and all the layers. How did you know I love pink for Christmas? Beautiful pink tree! Thank you so much; this beauty will grace my tree for years to come.
Response: I am so glad you Love the pink Christmas theme!!! Merry Christmas
Comment: Thank you for you card. Where did you get these? I absolutely love this one. It reminds me of growing up in my childhood home where everything was so sweet. Nostalgia does a heart good, right!

Comment: Wendy, I’m so very sorry, I forgot to rate you for this swap. Please forgive me.
This is such a very pretty card thank you so very much. I really love what you have done
Once again I’m sorry for the late rating ❤️
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful card! I love the layers and the pretty birds, and how two corners are rounded and two not. Makes it look extra fancy! Thanks for the small stuff, too, will be good to use on ATCs!
Comment: Funny how a simple quote can change a person in a moment. My Bestest friend is 32 and going through her 4th battle with cancer. She has been considered terminal twice and cleared about 6 months ago. She walked over and grabbed my mail on the way in and was crying when she walked in. I new she was giving me bad news again, her husband prepped me to prepare my emotions and such. She had your postcard and it read me the quote “You were born into this life because you are strong enough to live it”. I hugged her and she told me she can’t believe how much money people spend on postage (still always laughing and joking) She said now it makes sense. I needed to hear that and it was right in your mail. 😍. So after we joked about her committing a federal offense by reading my mail, she found great comfort in your postcard and has borrowed it. She wanted to share with her husband and journal about it. So I don’t have the right words to say but thank you. The cancer has spread to the point that we can only search for clinically studies at this point. She has been my neighbor and the closest genuine friend I have ever had. It just shows how important to not only the swapping community is to build ourselves up, but to be able to share with others around us as well. 💕💕💕
Comment: Whooooo made this gorgeous ATC? YOU DID! Wendy, it's really pretty. LOVE that pumpkin, the owl with the little jeweled eyes, and the glitter. REALLY special. Thanks so much for creating it for me.
Response: Thanks so much!!! It feels good to be unpacked and able to create again. I missed it so much.
Comment: WOW, just WOW. Can't even express how I love this ATC as Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and the ATC is amazing, thank you as well for the cut outs and I love the card I am going to re-purpose pieces of it. I really like the envelope you put the ATC in. Thanks for a great swap!!!
Response: I’m glad you enjoyed it. And yes I love the card too. So glad you can create more art from it. I’ve wanted to do that too!!!
Comment: Hi Wendy! So glad to hear you are settled after your move; moving is traumatic! I LOVE your ATC. It's put together so nicely and your ladybug image is perfect (also love that train postcard on the bottom). Thank you for sending it along in that sweet little bunny card!
Response: youre so welcome it was nice to get back to creating Atcs again
Comment: Wow, you are very accomplished! I can't even count the number of times I've moved and I think I still have 1 or 2 boxes that have never been opened since the first move! Hopefully, by the time you read this, the last 5 boxes will be done! Thank you!
Comment: I hate moving. I hate it but have done it more than 20 something times and have actually gotten good at what goes in what box and whatnot. I also know off top of my head how many boxes we need to move. Lol. Wa to NM is def a different climate. Lol. Take care thanks for the pc
Response: I wish I was better prepared. It’s a lot of work. Thanks and have a cooler summer. Lol
Comment: Thank you for the Fort Sumter postcard. I hope you are having better weather today - I want more rain as we need as much as we can get in Southern California! I hope you are having a wonderful day!
Comment: Hi Wendy! I completely understand about messy craft rooms! Your peacock is lovely and I am absolutely in LOVE with the edging you used--just beautiful! I also loved the gorgeous Punch Studio bluebird card you sent! Punch Studio is my favorite card company. Best of luck selling your home!
Response: I hate having everything put away. Itâ€™s plain unnatural. LOL
Comment: ((Wendy!!!))) Oh my GOSH! I mean seriously WOW!! You've obviously been doing this for awhile, and I'm just completely STOKED about all of the amazing cards you passed along. I cannot WAIT to look at them each closely and learn from the artists you shared with me. What a HUGE HUGE awesome swap. Thank you from the heart!
Response: Hehehe. I did have a bunch to give away.
Comment: fascinating postcard - did not look like a "snake woman" at all, hehe, thankfully!
thank you for the quote, also ... gotta work on choosing a LOT less stressful thoughts!
have a happy long weekend ~
Comment: What an awesome Bingo Card, I love how you used a "Halloween Bingo" background, I have been looking for those. The image is so cute with the owl and cat. Thank you Wendy, for this amazing Card. ðŸŽƒðŸ’•ðŸŽƒðŸ’•
Response: I have real bingo cards, but once I found that one, I knew it was the one to use. Glad u like it.
Comment: Belated thank you for the beachy Mickey card and encouraging quote, Wendy! I didn't get to go to the beach or Disney World, but I sure enjoyed my time in Orlando in July :) Hope your end-of-the-summer has been going well and that your mailbox has been full!
Comment: Belated thank you for this stunning veiled hat Vogue cover -- reminds me of Patti LuPone's impressive millinery as Helena Rubenstein in War Paint! -- the cute owl sticker, and the relevant forgiveness-related quote!
Comment: Hello Wendy,
Thank you for your ATC you created for me. I really like the background you used to enhance your ATC. The branch and bird look like they belong on this background. I look forward to adding this ATC to my ATC Collection.
Comment: Wendy, thank you for this beautiful ATC...I love the ribbonwork! For a moment, I thought you'd made the "S" out of ribbon! I love your aesthetic...and of course, I adore all the beautiful ribbons!
Response: I know the ribbon on the top that i made to look like a sail is large...i hope it fits into whatever u store ur atcs in.
Comment: Wendy, your flip-book is gorgeous! So detailed and everything matches so beautifullly! I love the colors you used, your inking of the edges, and all the little tags you incuded. Such a pretty book; I'm so glad it's mine.
Response: Im so glad u love it..me too...maybe ill make another for myself
Comment: Wendy, the doll is just stunning! I love her. The ribbons you chose are so pretty together and just my style! Thanks so much for a great swap and the extras tucked inside. :) She's going on my wall with my other awesome swaps!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome postcard ðŸ˜‹ I think if either of my grandmothers were still alive, they would give me a funny look and ask what's this weird Hindu Goddess looking creature supposed to be? Anyways very cool. Have a great day, Nathan
Comment: Thank you for the idyllic twilight view of the Virgin Islands and for the encouraging quote, Wendy! (It's especially helpful as I get back on track with my eating habits and exercising daily :)
Response: Thats a wonderful set of resolutions...very easily accomplished too...:)
Comment: What a lovely ATC! And to have actually eaten there - what fun! I remember eating at what we used to call sidewalk cafes about 52 years ago in Germany and in Geneva, Switzerland and loving it. Thanks for sending, and for the extras!
Comment: Thank you for the nice and weighty vintage-style Kwak chipboard card (I know the car is earlier than the 1920s, but it called to mind a rewritten lyric from the title song of Thoroughly Modern Millie: "In a rumble seat, the world is oh-so-cozy"), wonderful Voltaire quote, and adorable little penguin sticker, Wendy! â™¥
