Comment: Hi Collette! Many thanks for the sweet ATC you sent to fulfill this swap. I loved that you had a story in mind while creating the card--I love everything more when it has a story. What a special childhood memory and what a very special card. Thanks, too, for all those neat die cuts--are they Tim Holtz? I love anything TH!
Response: Yeah, that brought back memories. Yep, all Tim Holtz.
Comment: Thanks so much for your envelope of Halloween fun! I don;t have anything against extras but don't mind not getting them. I feel that the swap that you worked on should be the star. Love the baby spider, so cute. i love fibers too so the ones you used were perfect.
Response: Thank you for making me feel better!! It does seem like an unusual size but whatever works=)
Comment: Your postcard is great! I love the mummy you chose!
Response: Thank you, Kathy. Yeah, I didn't want a scary mummy...

Response: Glad you like it!!
Comment: Hi Collette! So nice to receive such a lovely package to fulfill this swap. LOVE it all--the great postcards, the notecards (ooooh, those kitties ;+), the wild animal stickers, and that rhino bookmark. I love bears and was so happy there were bear stickers on the sheets. Wonderful swap!
Response: Well, I would have sent more bear stickers (I love them, too!) but due to some rearranging; couldn't find them!! Argh!
Comment: Thank you so much, I love it! ♥ I also loved making postacards, with collaging in général, we can do so many beautiful things!!
Response: So happy you like it!! I don't know why but purple is a hard color for me to work with. I struggle with it...
Comment: Hi Colleen and thank you for the adorable Jack-O-Lantern tag! Such a cute image that you used and love the purple striped background paper and the coordinating fibers you tied at the top. So cute and so perfectly done! Thanks for a fun swap!
Response: Actually, my name is Collette. Yeah, I think there is a glitch in the system as I have left ratings for swappers & they end up disappearing. Am so glad you liked the tag=)
Comment: Love your postcard - what a cute little devil and the overall style was perfect! Thank you!
Response: Oh! I am so glad you like her. I just couldn't bring myself to do a regular demon or devil or grim reaper....

Comment: Thank you for the excellent ATC. I will use the extra's in future swaps.
Response: Awesome! Thanks for the rating & heart=)
Comment: Thank you for the awesome postcard. I did start the series early this year... that way we could do one a week instead of trying to do 2 or 3 a week, and then I can still offer most of our regular swaps. 👻
Response: Glad you like it. Yeah, that makes sense; thanks for offering these swaps up!!
AngelOH73 rated for TF: National Thriftshop Day 8/17 on Aug 23, 2021

Comment: Thank you for the lively Atc, sorry for not rating sooner.
Response: You are so welcome=)
Comment: Thank you for another lovely set of flower-of-the-month ATCs, and bonuses. These butterfly misting masks look like fun; I’ll certainly give them a try once I finish cleaning out my craftroom. It’s a complete mess right now and I can’t find anything. 😑 Anyway, I’m glad that you offered this swap again and I hope you’ll get some cooler weather soon so your head can feel better 😉
Response: Always happy to have you in my swaps, Harmony=) Thank you. Now we are having air quality hazards due to all the smoke from forest fires. It is never ending, isn't it? Don't you have hurricanes coming your way?

Thank you so much for working on my Collaboration Pc. You worked on it for Collab #94...back in 2020 and it just made it home. The sea horse and blue gems you added were the perfect addition for an ocean themed postcard. It's great.
