Comment: Super cute ones, thank you so much! But in future, please include the swap name to make the rating easier in case the receiver is in other similar type swaps, ok?
Extra heart from the really sturdy mailing envelope :).

Comment: Thanks so much for the awesome swap! You sent some very unique tea flavors and I can't wait to try them! And thanks for the homemade notecard and envelope. You are a quality crafter! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hi Loretta...yay it arrived, so you can feel at ease now. ðŸ˜ƒ I love how you created this ATC, but sadly, the two medium sized butterflies were snapped in half during post. I can glue it back together as it was a clean snap, no stress. I still love it, and the beautiful handmade card! I've been trying to find the 'hello' die cut everywhere to no avail. Thank you so much...ðŸ˜Šâ¤
Response: Glad you liked the card.

Comment: Oh girl!!!! I went to the post office, saw the GORGEOUS suprise waiting for me and did a happy dance. Yes I did. Right in front of my mailman. These tags are beautiful! I am going to hang them on the wall and display them the whole month of November. You really blessed me. Thank you!! Lots of hearts to you!
Comment: Beautiful cards! You are so talented. I especially love the snowman card. It is so cute. Thanks so much!
Response: Yay! Glad you like everything! The box is for the cards to go inside, you simply fold the bottom together, you can glue it so it stays if you'd like. Email; [email protected] Website: www.lorettarodger.com.
Comment: â™¥UPDATE 6.12.2015 - I overlooked giving a deserved heart. Here it is!â™¥ Hi Loretta, What an exquisite ATC!! It is so beautiful and elegant. I love the 3d affect. Wishing you an overflowing mailbox of happy surprises.
Response: I used a transparency to make the butterfly, it was stamped then I used some purple embossing enamel. The rest was just some bling and small embellies from my collection. So glad you liked it!
Comment: Loretta ,Thank you for the lovely valentine rolo. This rolo is soooo cute. I will also use the note tag as a template for my tag book swap and the bookmark swap. It' the perfect size!! : ). Hope to swap with you again.
Comment: Thank you so much for the teas! I was amazed when I opened the package! Your wrappings were so cute and well-made and just amazing. I am looking forward to trying the teas!

Comment: All I can say is "WOW!" Loretta, you work is simply amazing! I just love how you incorporated so many different elements into your cards (two!), and they came in a hand-made BOX! Just beautiful. Thank you. :)
Response: Thank you. The. Box is a sizzix die. Box, ATC. I just cut it 3 times to make it a bit nicer.... Glad you enjoyed them. More ideas on my blog...
Comment: Absolutely Beautiful ATCs! I was a tad confused when I receive a Package (since im only signed up for flat-mail type swaps atm) but when I opened it up, I was totally surprised! I love the little box they came. You do very beautiful work. <3
Response: I sent you the tracking information via private message. The envelope was marked with the swap name and there was a note inside the package. I'm glad you liked the ATC's. I had a great time making them and the boxes.
Comment: Hi Loretta, I was so pleased with the necklace that you sent. I just love to go to yard sales and find small beautiful treasures. I also like to find old unusual pins to adorn my daughters hair. I find them made a whole lot better then the plastic hair accessories in stores. thanks again, your have great taste!
Response: You are welcome! It was in a bag of mixed - matched jewelry at a flea market, I read you profile and you liked pink, It was pretty. I'm glad you like it!
Comment: WOW! I wish I could give you a million hearts!! The notecards you made for me are so beautiful!! And I love the shipping tags! I don't want to open the tea because the wrap is so cute! Wonderful all around sweetie! Thank you so much and thank you for joining my first swap!!
Response: You're so welcome. You should be able to get the wrap off the tea, use some un-du. I love the tea myself. I had a great time making everything! The little tea-pot on the tag is a shrinky dink.
Host another Christian note card swap, I'll join!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful swap! I love the butterflies and the ATCs are so pretty! The box is very clever! You really know how to wrap!! I did watch the video and will be trying to make a beautiful butterflyâ™¥â™¥

Comment: Thank you for my lovely presents. The bias tape is too pretty to hide in a garment - it's like silk ribbon. The post it holder will have a pride of place on my desk. Thank you for a wonderful swap. Hearts and hugs to you.

I hand die the seam binding, you can use it just like ribbon

Thank you VERY much, Loretta!
How did you print the Verses? I'm always interested in learning new techniques!
