Response: Wow! That's a huge compliment!!! You are so welcome!!!
Comment: I love this matchbox, Kari!! The outside looks like the lady is being sucked into a giant cupcake!! The inside is so well done, too - and what a clever way to do the drawer opener! I'll have to remember that!! Thank you!!
Comment: OMG! Your ATCs are incredibly wonderful! I love the 3D effect and what cute pictures. I hope you are liking mine bc we have such different styles. Yours are big and bold and mine are tiny and petite! lol I'm looking forward to our next swap. Do you like Hello Kitty bc I would love to do the same swaps with that.

Comment: Hi! Loved your card, message and stickers! I think the totally green breakfast would not work well for me, but you sure sound like you all have fun and that is awesome! Happy St. Paddy's Day to you and yours! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Response: You are so very welcome. Hope you enjoy it all!!
Comment: Did I mention that you have the same birthday as my younget brother? Thanks for the awesome letter. I usually make dinner at home too but our Mexican restaurant that we love is about the only place in town where you don't have to wait to be seated.
Response: Ha... our first Valentine's Day every restaurant chain in town was packed so we ended up eating at Hof's Hut. Ahh, romance! And your brother must be fabu! :-)
Comment: Your card was such a pleasure to read. Thank you! I also loved how you decorated your envelope with scrolls, curly cues and hearts. And of course
the postage stamp was gorgeous. :) After being excited about receiving a handful of swaps today, and then being disappointed with the lack of care in putting them together/sending them out, your card was simply so pleasant to sit down and read. Wonderful! Thank you! :)
Response: Awww... you are welcome and thank you very much!!!
Comment: HI Kari, I loved this card with the 3 little kittens! Thanks and thanks also for the great stickers and note.I liked hearing about your tradition of heart shaped pasta and meatballs and pink sauce!! Sweetpea is what I call my granddaughter!! Happy Meow-intine's Day to you too! :)
Comment: Thank you for your letter :) An other country you should visit around Christmas is The Netherlands - it's so pretty there!! So jealous about you being close to Disneyland! I want to go there some day <3 Thank you!!
Response: Go to Disneyworld.. it is like a dozen of our small parks put together and so much more!!! I would love to travel the world at Christmas time!
Comment: I am so jealous that you guys have shorts weather. It's FREEZING in the NORCAL area -_- but I get to be in sunny LA area on the 24th-27th for Disneyland then I'm going to Catalina the 28th-2nd. San Francisco is wonderful during Christmas I absolutely love it. If you haven't been to Christmas in the park in San Jose you should check it out too as well as Global Winter Wonderland (Santa Clara where Great America is). Merry Christmas!!
Response: Well of course now that I have written to you that I was in shorts... it has been freezing the past few days! I know nothing compares to the freezing of states with real weather but seriously... we went out tonight and the cold wind was blowing and.. and... I actually wore pants and was still cold! Ha.Have fun when you are down here for Christmas! Enjoy Disney!I am going tomorrow and Thursday before our blackout dates on our passes start. Christmas time is beautiful inthe park!
Comment: Chompers, Beeky, & the fabulous SweetPea, thank you all for a wonderful card. We have a tree also, with our stockings hung by the tree. We are so bereft the whole year, our stockings are filled to the top with toys and treats. Hope you all have a great holiday and new year. Poppy, Jack and Gracie
Comment: Thanks for the lovely Thanksgiving card. Your note was great. Sounds like a fun way to spend the holiday. I hosted dinner at my house. My granddaughter came over early and helped cook and set up. We had a great day. Hope your holidays are truly wonderful, Linda
Comment: Kari - you totally outdid yourself for this swap!! I love the creepy/sweet little girl picture box! And a cute little skeleton inside! And a cupcake box of course! But with bones and braaaaiinsss inside! Nice! Thank you also for the glittery skulls and the Halloween stamps (which of course, can be used all year long!). Thank you for making my Halloween extra great this year!!
Comment: Hi Kari. I love this card too... it is one of the ones I sent out! I'm so glad I have a copy to keep now. :) I liked hearing about your new kitty. I was actually inspired by your yearly pumpkin party to have one of my own. No tiaras (I'm inviting family), but I am making spooky treats. Thanks for swapping with me again.
Comment: Loved reading your answers! So marvelous to see someone else write a whole pile about their babies. And I loved the super cute kitten pics too! Though I would love to see some better pics of Chompers too. He looks like a handsome boy! Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely valentine goodies. I love everything! The ribbon is gorgeous, the squirrelly stamp is adorable but my favorite part was the note. You're a sweetie. Send me pictures of those streaks when you get them! Hugs! Teri
Comment: This is such a great card!! I love that little girl! And I just think when you ink the edges it just gives that special finishing touch! Thank you so much - and I've hung up the cupcake towel to use right away!!
Comment: Thank you very much for all the pretty Christmas Cupcake items :) It was really hard to find anything like that in Finland, especially at my small hometown, so I had to send decoration supplies. But they were Christmassy ;) Once more: cheers and have a very merry Christmas!
Comment: Sorry this rating is coming so late, I just wanted to let you know that I did not forget to rate you, time has just run away with me. Sorry again for that! Thanks so much for all the wonderful cards. I hope you had a wonderful Halloween and that you have an even better Thanksgiving as it approaches! (:
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful package of Cupcake goodies. I love the 2012 Year Planner and the buttons and ribbon are so cute! Anyone who gets you as a partner should consider themselves very lucky!
Response: Wow! Thank you so much! I am so glad you like all your goodies. The second I read you like buttons I knew I had to go get you those cute ones. I hope you create something fabu with them. :-)
Comment: Thanks for all of the goodies! I went to the WDW Halloween party last year, and am really missing it this year. It was extra special getting the Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party brochure from Disneyland. Thanks so much. I WANT TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Response: So glad you liked all your goodies! I went to the WDW party in 2006 and it was awesome! We were there for 10 days and had a blast! SO WANT TO GO BACK! At least I have my Disneyland though I guess. :-)
Comment: WOWZA! That treat box was filled to the brim! You really know how to put a swap package together my friend! Thank you for everything you put in there, I can totally use it all!!! â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥ ;)
Comment: Great card, thanks! I love cards from special hotels, so this is a card that I really like. Most people in Austria speak English quite well - they appreciate it if you speak a little German, but it is not necessary!
Comment: This was one of the most thoughtful, wonderful packages I have ever received in all my time on swapbot! Thank you so much for everything! I love the hand decorated boxes they are so cool and sparkly! and the witch is soooo cool!
Oh wow I love all the pretty orange and black tissue paper! Everything looks so pretty :) Thank you so much! Hope you have a super Halloween!
Comment: Your package arrived today and I can just say: wow! Thank you so much for making my day better! That candles smell fantastic and I can't wait to bake some cookies with my new cookie cutter :) You're the best!
Response: Aww. I am so happy you liked all your goodies. Now you made my day. Well you are going to be happy then because I also got you for the Hello Kitty little swap too. Out of 53 people... I get your name back to back. Why can't I be that lucky with lottery numbers??? But I am so glad it made your day! :-)
Comment: You are so wonderful! I love the pkg you sent ..and the Snoopy â™¥ (not silly, makes me smile a lot) Everything is perfect ..the candles, the sprinkles, the memo pad. Snoopy is going on my corkboard. :o) Thank you, thank you!
Response: Well you made my day! I am so glad you liked everything! I had fun putting it together. And making Snoopy made me smile too! I always appreciate a fellow Snoopy fan! :-) Thanks for the kind words! Happy fall!
Comment: I think my "dinner" is cute so yeah I like the "food" although the temaki looks like a bouquet of flowers and the udon looks like a vase with flowers. Thank you =)
Response: Sadly... I cannot draw! I was hoping to have to draw a hamburger and fries. Ha. I looked up temaki on line and I swear... that's what the picture looked like! Now I am thinking it was a fancy version of the dish. Oops. I hope at least it made you laugh. :-)
Comment: Love the pc. I am gearing up for the TX state fair, can't wait to try all the new deep fried items this year, lol!!
Response: Oh I am soooo jealous!! The LA county fair is on right now. But I really want to go to yours! Please give me a food report and let me know of all the new stuff you find. My fave is the deep fried cookie dough! They didn't have it here this year, though. We got fried Kool Aid and fried brownies.
Comment: Thankyou Kari for the lovely cat postcard, I love the tiger with her cub, it is so beautiful. I have not been to Ireland or Scotland, I would love to visit the U.S.A., thankyou Kar,i love Jennifer.
Comment: omg I LOVE!!!!!!!! this coin!!!!! Where we went to Disney and Seaworld I just didn't have a lot of extra funds to do knox and legoland (to be honest, I went to legoland once and wasn't super impressed.) But I would like to do knox at some point. That coin is so cute! Thank you!!
Comment: Thank you for the Disney pennies. My second set of Disney and my first of these designs. They are darling. I love them. Thank you so much. Reading your note, I can tell how proud you are of southern CA. Thank you for sharing.
Response: I'm so glad you like them. I love spreading Disney pennies around. :-)
Comment: Thank you soooo much, Kari!!!! I LOVE the pennies and the magnet! Everything is perfect and I am so happy!! Thanks for the maps too -- wow, there are a LOT of penny machines at Disney!! Keep in touch!! : ) â™¥
Response: I just got yur package at home during lunch! LOVE a package that greets me with a fuzzy little penguin jumping out of the box! So glad you liked all your stuff... we must do this again sometime. :-)
Comment: Thanks so much for the cupcake card and note! I love the card! It's fantastic! You don't give yourself enough credit for your card making skills! Great colour choices too! Pink and purple are my faves :)
Response: Those are my fave colors too. So glad you liked the card! It was a total labor of love and I think I have a new craft now. :-)
Comment: Love my Mickey and Pluto coins! And I just got the Disney Tink coin book from rattissia - perfect! Now I need to go to Disneyland to get more!!!! My hubby said something out over dead body?? Don't know what that's about..........
Response: I'm so glad you liked them. I have seen the Tinkerbell penny book. You're going to need a lot more Disney pennies to fill those up. Let me know if you ever want more. :-)
Comment: What a great package you sent! I love everything and I think my favorite item is the ornament you made for me! You are an excellent swapper and will do good on Swap-Bot. I would give you dozens of hearts if Swap-Bot allowed, but we can only give one!
Comment: Oh, yaay! I think it's fabulous that there is a theme park with a Snoopy mascot! I wish we had one here :-) Thanks so much for the awesome Snoopy-themed pennies. They are getting a place of honor in one of my penny books! I look forward to swapping with you again in the future :-)
Response: I am so glad you liked them. When I saw you were a Snoopy fan I knew you would. There are a few more pennies there I have my eye on for you. :-)
Comment: Funny! I have two Kari's as partners for this swap! I am with you! I love me some Herito! The season finale was a good one! I'm excited about the Closer season premiere onMonday! How 'bout them boys!!! Go Cowboys!
Happy Swapping! Kim
Comment: Thanks for your lovely comment! I really would love to visit Pittsburgh someday and attend a penguins game.. alas I just got out of University and have student loans to pay off... so I don't have a huge amount of excess funds to do so lol.
OMG! The Tudors.. where to begin? well I have all of the seasons on DVD and have watched them over and over again... did you hear that Jonathan Rhys Meyers apparently tried to commit suicide recently? It could be all heresay but I love him as an actor and hope he gets well soon.
If you loved that series and enjoy reading I strongly recommend Margaret George's book "The autobiography of King Henry VIII" â™¥â™¥ it is very good.
Comment: I also think it is fun to come across someone I have a lot in common with :o)
I would love to swap pennies, but the thing is I don't have any ;o) I was reading about pressed pennies online, and a penny-press is something I've never even heard of. :o) If you want to swap some pressed pennies and get something else in return, please let me know! :o)
Comment: Thanks for the comment on my profile! You know, "coach" is one of the few words in English which comes from Hungarian; the Hungarian word is "kocsi", pronounced like "coach-y" which means either coach or nowadays car :)
Response: Hi there! I grew up with my Dad telling me our name meant Coach driver. So it means the actual car? Wow, that's pretty interesting. Thanks for the info! So the spelling of my name has been changed in this country or do they spell it my way there too?
