Comment: Oh my gosh these cards are terrific! The Coca-Cola card made me get up and pop open a can of soda. When I looked at that card I could hear the fizz! Every one of these cards are terrific, and I don’t have any of them. And I’m very glad to hear you’re feeling better.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome 6s ! I will have some fun this afternoon integrating them into my various Frankendecks! I'll be thinking about you and sending lots of positive and healing vibes!! lots of hugs! xx
Response: Yes we did although the cards I have used for these swaps were not from our collection as those were traded quite a few years ago when he started getting DVDs instead. I have about 400 now although most of the newer ones are blue-ray.
Comment: I love the laughing hyenas card! so cute. Your sketching remind me our homes are so important to us. A time to be grateful. You sketched a beautiful homestead. Thank you for that and the extras!
Response: Glad you liked the card and my sketch, I bought those cards at our zoo to support the African Painted Dog Research. Those dogs are the wild dog of Africa while the Hyenas are of the feline species.
Comment: Thank you for the great cards! They are all new to my frankendecks!! Thank you so much! IO My daughter is Abraham Lincoln's biggest fan and she is squeeing over this card!!
Happy Spring to you too!!
Comment: Thank you Barbara for your R - Raisen Bran Crunch postcard. And the rabbits and R2 D2 decorations!! I am so enjoying these alphabet home made postcards! I found an album that holds all the various sizes. It’s quite fun looking at all together.
Comment: Hi, Barbara! I'll definitely check this series out! Thank you for sharing the book lines from these books with me. Sounds like the weather in Kansas is confused. It's similar to spring here in Manitoba; we can experience all four seasons in one day sometimes. Have a great day!
I am so sorry that this rating is coming so late. You can read my Profile to find out the details.
I appreciate your swap that you sent me toad to my wonderful collection of Art in all forms. If I received something that needed to be passed onto the next swapper, please know they have been passed on.
I am leaving Swap-bot after participating in this FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE from 2007. My health is needing my complete attention in order to heal and improve over time. THANK YOU goes out to all those I swapped with over the last about 15 years, it has been a PLEASURE.

Comment: Thank you for the stamps, washi and greeting card. It got a little bent in transit, butbbi think I can flatten it out. I like the washi you used on the envelope. That will definitely make it into my journal.
Comment: Thank you for the postcard with the little note about butterflies at your local zoo. I got married in the Butterfly house at our local zoo. A butterfly landed on my shoulder durring the ceremony!
Comment: Hello Barbara! Thank you so much for the beautiful winter theme postcard! I’ve never been to New Jersey, and although it’s not your state it fits the theme perfect and is such a beautiful image 😀
Comment: Thank you for the great things of blue. Your envelope was in two pieces. It came in a USPS sorry bag so the machine ate it! I was missing the playing card and notecard! I was glad to see the rest at least!
Comment: Thanks very much, for the Large letter Kansas PC! Our winter sounds about like yours. Only right now, we're having an Ice storm and it looks like an Ice cave out there. The electric has been flickering off & on. So, I had better get off here now. Take care.
Comment: Hi there Barbara! Received your cat PC today and it's just so adorable. Thanks very much. I had a whole collection of these very same PC's, that I bought from thriftbooks.com. But they are all passed along now. I love the Egyptian Mau cat & so would love one! I highly doubt they even sell these cats in USA. If they did, they'd cost an arm & an leg I'm sure.
Response: Thank you. I got that set from Amazon. I will have to check out thriftbooks.com. although I don't need anymore cards or books right now.
Comment: Thanks for the chunk! What are you doing with your VCR tapes, now that you have cut up the boxes? I really need to re-watch "Cocktail". I like Elizabeth Shue, and it's been decades since I saw it. I should also watch "Top Gun", cuz it was a great movie in the 80s (did it hold up?), and the sequel is coming out. Do you remember "The Last Samurai"? That might be one Tom Cruise movie you don't like! I rated it 4 out of 10, but that was back in 2003 before I kept notes about WHY I did or didn't like something.
Comment: Fancy meeting you here! hee hee hee! Thank you for the adorable Christmas Card and the sheet of snowman stickers! Love them!
I hope you have a fantastic 2022 full of happiness and GOOD health! xx
Comment: Absolutely LOVE the cards you chose for me! ALL of them are perfect and brand new for my Frankendeck!! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and that 2022 is full of GOOD HEALTH and happiness! xx gabi
Comment: Barbara, thank you so much for the adorable Christmas card, I absolutely adore it with my entire heart! Thank you so much for the stickers you included as well, I am so grateful and appreciative. I can't wait to display the card you sent me:)
Have a wonderful Christmas<3
Comment: Hi Barbara! It’s good to hear from you again!!! Thank you for the Stickers around the world postcard. Thanks also for the Sunflower and mermaid stickers. I can’t forget to mention the wonderful hand made envelope. It is very special. Merry Christmas 🎄🎁 Alma
Comment: Oh my gosh, I just love the Christmas card of the cat, that you sent me! ! He/She does look like a cat with attitude, lol ! But yet so dang cute too ! Thanks so much for this sweet card ! It's very special to me! Esp. that you got it from Walmart. I haven't been to Walmart in nearly 2 years. As the closest one is 20 miles from here. Because there's something wrong now with my right hip. Maybe cause I spend so much time in my wheelchair. I don't know. But I hate it either way, gr-r-r ! Anyhow, thanks so much too, for the sooooo cute Christmas dog & cat stickers! I love them a lot! Merry Christmas to you Barbara & your loved ones! I hope the Best one ever!🎄
Comment: I loved this State Capital. My friend took me there when I stayed a couple of days with her. I was going to ask you if we are partners, please, if you think of it, send State Capital postcards, inside and out!!
Comment: I definitely saw Bad Boys, but way back when it came out in a theater. I am not sure if I saw the second one. May have to add that to our list! I'm not sure why I already have a rating for you for this swap. I wonder if I could have marked the original rating here and it belonged to a different swap this month? I'll have to take a look! PREV MSG: If you're within 1/2 hour of me, neither one of us is having a white Christmas!! Some of my snowbird family down here is going back to MN for the holidays. I am happy staying here and sitting in the hot tub! Happy Holidays, and thanks for your chunk of Christmas!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty postcard - I have the same rubber stamp, but I stamped it twice, scanned it in and now print 2 backs at once - don't have to worry about making a mistake! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely postcard. I love elephants too. Our zoo has several and we have one of the most prolific zoos for elephant babies being born. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. fun stuff - doris
Comment: Thanks for the swap and the fun playing cards. I didn’t have either of them in my collection. It continues to amaze me, with over 300 in my collection, I continue to receive very few duplicates.
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. I know what you mean about getting new ones. That is one of the reasons I keep joining these Playing Card Swaps.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard! It is amazing at all the details you colored on the postcard. Every time I look at it, I see something new. Thank you again and keep on swapping... <3 and V!
Comment: Thanks for the swap and the nice playing cards. We haven't seen 90F here in about a month but it is going between 75F days and 45F nights. I go to sleep with the windows open and wake up at 2:00am freezing.
Comment: This was a fantastic swap! I love the washi you sent. Thanks for the extras too! And the quality is great. They are sooo cute. I really really love the skulls. I've been needing one like that. The best part was how you used the washi on the front of the card as decoration. That is definitely giving me inspiration! Thank you! Happy Halloween!
Comment: Hi Barbara, yes it has been a while since we swapped. I enjoyed hearing from you. Funny you mentioned the zoo, Our daughter, son in law and granddaughter took me and hubby to the St. Louis zoo last Friday!! What a fun day and great weather!! You also stay safe and well.
Comment: Hi Barbara,
Thank You for the beautiful postcard you colored and sent me. I love the colors you used . This series is one of my very favorite series swap that has been a part of this swapping site. I remember doing this swap for the first time. I started with around #30 and have done almost every one of them since #30. I have beautiful and varied in medium and in subject matter postcards. I think it's interesting, as well, that I never got a repeat postcard.
It was so nice to see your name at the bottom of the postcard. The varied shades of purple you used for this postcard was a nice touch.
You are a GREAT SWAPPER ! I have always received FANTASTIC swaps from you. I have been having an interesting event happening over the last 8-9 months. , with regards to the partners I was matched with for each swap. That event was that for almost every swap I did, I had a partner(s) that I had not swapped with ever before. As a result, I have met some very nice new(to me) swappers.
I hope we cross paths again in the future. Happy Swapping!!
Barbara B., sleepingrover2010
Comment: Thank you for the resend, we'll see if the first one ever arrives. :) I love the Tangled pc. I've seen Tangled several times and my favorite part is the lantern scene. So pretty! Take care and thank you for your kindness!
Comment: Well hello there Barbara! I didn't realize you did Adult coloring PC's! How great is that! Thank you for this coloring PC, you sent me of flowers in jars. Very pretty! Our weather is like yours, in the 70's & 80's. Today it reached 88 degrees though, ugh! I'm actually looking forward to fall weather. My kind of weather by far.
Comment: Barbara, Hi ! Thank you very much, for the Tiger PC! Which is my #1 favorite of the big cats. Must be nice to live near a Zoo and see Tigers & cubs. I envy you. We would have to drive 3 hours to see the Philadelphia Zoo. Which is the closet to us and we have been there several times too. Love it! There used to be a Zoological park in Wellsboro, PA., 45 minutes from here. But it got shut down 5 years ago or so, due to it not being kept up and half of the animals were dying, because their funding ran out & so did the food. What a shame this happened. As it was around since I was a kid in the mid 60's. What animals were left were sent to other states zoos.
Comment: Hi Barbara,
I received your swap on Wednesday, Sept. 15th.
It was so nice to see your name on a swap coming to me from you. Thank You so much for the colorful and beautiful postcard you created for me. I'm excited to add your postcard to my "Adult Coloring Postcard(s)" Collection. This is one of my favorite swaps and I have participated in this swap starting with approximately #35.
I hope I get to see your name on more swaps that come my way OR me sending you a swap. Until we swap again, Happy Swapping!
Response: Thank you for the rating. I haven't joined all of them but I have joined quite a few of these over the years. It is so fun to color the cards and to see what someone else colors for me.
Comment: Hey there Barbara! Received your swap for Dragon PC's and just these ones you sent & are definitely keepers! I also loved your Dragon note card! Oh Yes, Dragons are my #1 favorite as well ! I have loved them for as long as I can remember! Esp. if it's dealing with the Medieval period. One of my very favorite movies is Eragon. They were supposed to make a 2nd one. But never did so.☹ Another I love is DragonHeart. Thank you for a great swap!
Response: Glad that you like them. I bought 3 of each of those so I could have one to keep for myself. I had trouble finding cards so I was glad that the swap said that Zazzle cards were ok.
Comment: Thanks Barbara as always you go above and beyond and I do appreciate you and I hope you have a good day your envelope was open on the side of freaky but everything was intact so don’t worry about that I love the Star Wars stamp and the envelope was spot on thanks
Response: I hate it when that happens. I always wonder if something didn't fall out. Thank you for your rating and kind note.
Comment: Hi Barbara! Thank you for the joining the swap, the lovely card and the share! I hope you get some relief about your shoulder soon! I loved reading about the party, so worth the time to go! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thank you for the rating. I did find out that it is not my shoulder but a pinched nerve in my neck. I had disc replaced in 2009 and it seems this one is right below that . So I am waiting on a call from the neurosurgeons office.
Comment: Thanks for The Whoopee Party postcard. I love anything Mickey and Minnie. I used to watch the original Mickey Mouse Club - as reruns - with my grandmother. I grew up watching the newer version.
Comment: Thank you so much for the PC of the beautiful dog! We only had one dog in my life when I was a teen and we named her Snoopy because she looked just like Charlie Brown's Snoopy. We have always had a bunch of cats. Have a wonderful day!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard ;) I have that boxed set as well.. when someone sends me a card from it then most times I make that card available to send from my set. I wish I did that from the beginning so I could keep track 😂 I now have a few of this same card and it always arrives with her neck and chin worn from the machines 😂 so funny! Thanks again!
Comment: I literally just laughed! I got the back of McClintock today and it says that it’s the bonus because you also send the front well informed delivery says at the front was supposed of been delivered as well yesterday but it was not and I picked up my mail today so anyway I just wanted to tell you thank you so much and as soon as the front appear I will let you know as well thank you Barbara and I hope you have a good day
Today is September 1 and I received the front half of the VHS thank you
Comment: Thank you so much for the PC of the beautiful cat! Give Annabelle a hug for me. We have 2 little 12 week old kittens. I had forgotten how much trouble they could get into. LOL! I named them Calli and Cassi. Have a wonderful day!
Comment: Hi Barbara,
I love your VCR Tape Box...Super Cute and a great idea! I may have to check out my local thrift for some. The graphics are fun!!!!
I love the stamp on the card. Thank you for swapping - Cindy
Response: The one I go to has them 2 for $.99 plus I had a big box that was left when I had things in a storage unit. No one claimed it so I cut those boxes up also. You can also find them at garage/yard sales.
Comment: Excellent PC! I have been to the KC railway building. My son loved the children's museum (or was it just all the children's things? it's been about 18 years), also, we saw fireworks one year on the grounds with the light show, we've seen ice skating at the Hallmark Mall nearby, and used to stay at The Renaissance Hotel once in a great while.. I have friends in Lenexa..they were my first neighbors when I moved to NE. Then, they eventually moved to Lenexa 😃😃 Thanks for the great memories!! 💚
Comment: loved the K-9 movies. I was trying to remember if there was 2 or 3 movies!!
Response: I haven't seen all of them but I looked it up and there were 4 total The original K-9, one Made for TV film- K-9000, and 2 straight to video films K-911 and K-9 PI. I don't think I saw any except the first one.
Comment: Never received. But U don’t have to send another 😉 u have a good day friend today is 8/15 funny I mention not receiving something and next day it is here. lol. Ok didn’t check mail last nite cause it was late when we got home but your I was there. Thanks for the pc. I also don’t know if I saw this movie. Take care
Today is 8:21 thanks for the back of the movie. Love the stickers. Thanks so much
Response: You should know by now that is not how I go. There is another on the way. Hope this one gets there.
Comment: Thank-you for this swap! You won’t believe it, but, I recently made another failed attempt at getting some US stamps off paper, and the tiger stamps went through that ordeal and suffered fatally. I was bummed out about mucking up the tiger stamps last week, and then your swap shows up and has two of these tiger stamps!!! Made my day 💕💕💕 Thank-you 💕💕💕 (also the postcards are so dang adorable too!)
Comment: Thanks for the hook cardboard! I have always loved this movie. Even before they started doing all the live disney movies this was one of my faves. I love Dustin Hoffman and Robin Williams in this movie.
Comment: Awww, Annabelle is SO sweet! Thank you for the card with her photo's and the postcards for the swap. Where did you find the cat washi tape?? I love it! Especially the pink one with the black cat on it!
Response: The pink one came from Michaels. The other one I don't remember. It was either Michaels or Joanns.
Comment: Thank you for your note about the postcards you sent! It adds so much interest! I did realize Route 66 crossed Kansas when we took the road out west. Then I could say I’d been in Kansas😁! I really like all the Kansas pcs.
Comment: OMG, love this card! Thanks so much for resending by the way!! Not sure which artist/group was on the original but this one is great. Dr. Feelgood is my favorite Motley Crue song by far! Hope you're having a lovely summer!
Comment: Hi Barbara, thank you very much for the awesome Longhorns postcard and the info. I enjoyed what you shared and will be doing some reading this afternoon. Enjoy your day and stay well and happy.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely butterfly ATCs. The notecards are a great bonus and I also love the envelope you made. Do you remember where you got the baby dragon washi tape? I have never seen it and it is adorable.
Response: I got it at https://dragonsandbeasties.com/ She is sold out right now but does bring them back every so often.
Comment: This a great image for a found image ATC. I would love to have a high tea in a garden that was decorated like that. Love the description under it too. What a fun surprise! Just might have to use those directions someday and do just that! 😉😃 Thank you! Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July. 💗
Comment: Thank you for the lovely coasters and your note. These completely take me back to 1987 (the year of the pattern you used)--my sweet neighbor always liked to stitch on plastic canvas and these remind me of her. Also, morning glories and irises are two of my absolute favorite flowers--how perfect for me! Thanks again for the time and care you put into these special gifts for me. ♥
Comment: Very nice decks! And it sounds like you got a good deal for them. I never thought to look in the grocery store for playing cards (I've gotten more decks online the past year since finding them locally is a challenge). Take care.
Comment: Hi Barbara,
I want to start out this rating with A BIG THANK YOU for your patience in receiving this rating on this swap. Since my surgery, I have had a difficult time, post-op infection, continued slow healing, and GI issues. I really enjoyed swapping with you, so I APPRECIATE your patience.
The mail in Colorado continues to move slow, both in and out of the state. PLEASE be Patient with my mail as I never know how it will be handled after I turn it over to the Post Office.
Thank you for your beautiful postcard you colored. Your multi-tool use made the postcard you colored very nice. It looks like you used markers and colored pencil.
I have had the opportunity to swap with you before on Swap-bot. Over the last 8-9 months, I have met a lot of new swappers, new swappers to sending me a swap for the first time. My experiences with you have been WONDERFUL! . I look forward to swapping with you in the future. Until then, HAPPY SWAPPING!
Comment: Well, This makes #3 swap, you had me in, hee hee! Thank you very much for the Michael Jackson PC. I love his music & he is so missed! Thank you too for the Buddy Holly stamp. My mom loves him!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful card, Barbara! I really appreciate you going to the trouble to send all the way to me in Australia after I accidentally joined the USA swap instead of the INTL swap.
I hope you're having a wonderful spring!
Comment: Hi Barbara! 👋 Thank you so much for this lovely envelope of happy mail.📬 I love and can use all of the butterfly 🦋 envies you made. Thanks too for your kind note, 💌 & for the labels. 💚 Take care 🤗
Comment: Informative information about book and type you prefer to read. While not my choice, as I don't like supernatural horror and gore, we can't all like the same. The notecard, I recognize. I must have sent it to you.
Response: Thank you for the rating. I know what you mean about not everyone liking the same things. You could have sent the notecard but I have also bought some at one of our local Dollar Tree stores..
Comment: Thank you for the cards! I don't have either one of those. And I too, really like the blue one. The note card is super pretty, and since you didn't write on the inside of the pretty part, I can re-use it, so that's heart material :-) I'm REALLY BIG into finding ways to re-use things!
Comment: Thank you for the postcards, I especially like the pink flamingo card - my aunt and I have a running joke about them so I will have to send it her way! :) Take care and thank you for the vintage stamps on the envelope too! <3
Comment: Thank you for such a neat card, what an interesting idea for this swap. I absolutely loved the creativity and thought it wonderful. I also haven't seen anything VHS related in ages so that was nice too.
Comment: Thank you. I especially liked the ferrett envie!
Response: I am so glad you liked them. That is one of my favorites also. We used to have some when my husband was alive. But after I lost the last one I didn't get anymore as I can no longer take care of them the way they need.
Comment: Thank you so much for taking the time to read my profile. Of course, the Peanuts were my absolute favourite, but I loved the Mario too. The Winnie the Pooh are perfect too, and the Disney ones are super cute.
Comment: Thanks for the Merlin chunk. Hubby says it is a good one and hadn’t thought of it in years. Thanks Barbara
Today is Monday and we got the back of Merlin. Thanks so so much. All the best ps what do u do with the vhs tapes ?
Comment: Thank you for the cards! I agree, the blue dragon card is super cool! I liked them both though and didn't have either in my collection so thank you! Oh, I also really liked the stamp on the outside of the envie!!
Comment: Hi Barbara,
It has been a little while since we have swapped with one another. It's nice to hear from you again. Thank you for the lovely postcard you colored for me. I love cats and so your Ballerina Cat is a Winner with me. You did a GREAT JOB coloring and it will be a WONDERFUL ADDITION to my Colored Postcard Collection.
It was a pleasure to have you as a partner again on Swap-bot. I hope we have many more times to swap with one another. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!!
Colorado mail in and out of the state has been slow, as well as, I am also awaiting a special form of low back surgery to keep my chronic pain at a Level that is tolerable. I am sorry for the delay.
Comment: Love the stickers. Especially the sloth
Where do you buy your stickers
Response: There are 4 places - Walmart ( the sloth was from a Themed sticker sheet by Sticko), Dollar Tree, and 2 craft stores Michaels, and JoAnn's. We also have Hobby Lobby but I very seldom shop there. Plus whatever I get sent in swaps.
Comment: Thanks for joining my swap, stay safe yourself. Rich
Response: I'm trying. Got my first vaccine yesterday. No reaction other then a sore spot where it was given. The medical center that I go to has it working good now. I was in and out in less than 45 minutes.
Comment: Dear Barbara
I loved reading about Annabella
She beautiful 😻 Suzy Q what a lovely name and she a sweetie
Thanks for joining the group swap
Hope to be partnered again
Hugs to Annabella
Take care stay safe
Comment: Hi Barbara! I love your bird pc! So bright and cheery looking on this very gloomy day -we have only seen the sun one day all week - sigh! I received a window bird feeder for Christmas and am amazed at how much joy it is bringing me! Thanks for brightening my day!Wishing you all the best! Hugs, Happy New Year, and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute Dirty Dancing postcard! Am I correct when I guess it's made from an old VHS box? I love it!!!
Response: Yes it is. I actually have a whole box of tapes, many with boxes that was left in my storage at one time. I like how they make interesting cards for these swaps. I have also bought some at a thrift shop or garage/yard sales for only 50 cents or less each when I have trouble finding a card . I am glad that you liked it.
Comment: What a gorgeous envelope! Thank you for sharing that book with me. I think it's extra special to read something when the author isn't a stranger. Hope 2021 finds you with even more books to read!
Comment: Hi Barbara for the beautiful Eagle pc and share! I so love Eagles and we are also blessed to have a pair that return to the nest yearly - I saw them the other day and got so excited!! I did get a few photos and that totally had me smiling! Wishing you all the best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Your card arrived today and I will be opening it closer to Christmas. Thank you.
12/14 I opened your card today. as I am writing this rating I am hearing about the vaccine being given to Medical Professionals. Hopefully we will soon be able to be out and about again. Merry Christmas.
Comment: thank you so much Barbara. I do love the dragon, it is so pretty. But the harley actually reminded me of my dad, and today that really made me happy. (he's been gone since 2012, but I still miss him all the time). So thank you for brightening my week. :)
Comment: Thank you for the Kansas postcards Barbara! We drove through Kansas on our way to California this summer and it is a lovely state, I thought it would all be flat and kind of boring but it wasn't at all! :). Enjoy those sunsets!
Comment: I love what you sent, thankyou! The envelope was fun and Christmassy, the card pretty and the stickers a great extra (and will be used as I love Christmas things!) All the best and Merry Christmas! Tracy
Comment: Hello and thank you for your wonderful card. I hope you're having a wonderful day. I will be sharing your postcard on my Instagram page (trishaspostcards) as well as on my Facebook page (Trisha's Postcards). Happy swapping!
Comment: Hi Barbara,
How was your Thanksgiving? I hope it was a nice day for you and that you got to connect with family and friends in some way.
I have been enjoying the postcard you sent me to finish off and mail home to Charlotte. I have been working on it everyday. I also appreciate the brand new postcard you sent along . I added it to my other postcards I have for coloring. This postcard may be showing up in a future Coloring Collaborative.
It was GREAT to swap with you again. I always have positive swap experiences with you. I hope you have similar experiences with me.
I look forward to having more swaps with you in the future. I love swapping and I enjoy swapping with you.
Your Swap Friend,
Comment: Thank you for the book pages. I actually read this book quite recently. I think I got it recommended through this swap a while ago!
Response: I didn't realize that I had sent you about this book before. I actually have a 3rd book of his that I won in a raffle in a fundraiser for a zoo group in September. It is called "They call me Cowabunga". Which is more of his African Safari stories.
Comment: Received PC today, thank you very much. Looks like you had a great week, more pluses then negatives that's for sure. Hope this week goes just as good. Stay positive and healthy and most of all happy, have a great day.
Comment: Thanks for Apollo 13 chunk and for the stickers/stamps. Funny A made it but B didn’t yet
Today is October 29th and I want to thank u for the bonus. It arrived in a post office hospital bag and it was smeared like it had gotten wet but it was still kinda intact anyway thanks.
Response: And of course they were sent at the same time. Hope you get it soon.
Comment: Pretty photo choice, thank you! Check your local thrift store for magazines. Mine has current (last 2 months) for 25 cents each :)
Response: Thanks for the suggestion. I will try that. Although I will have to check and see which ones are still open as we have had at least 2 (that I know of) that have closed permantly in the last few months.
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute card and stickers. I have always enjoyed how our neighborhood has decorated for Halloween but this year we have had the owners of our 3 best decorated houses move from the area. I'm usually at the quilt show on Halloween so I haven't celebrated in years. It has been cancelled because of the virus so I signed up to work at the church festival for the kids. I already have my assignment. I'm the hot dog girl. LOL! Have a great day!
Comment: Thanks for ginger ale card and for the goofy stickers and Micah loves the gorilla. He loved the George h w stamp too. He knows all the presidents by heart in order he likes to do them backwards.
Comment: Thanks for the flip card and fun f stickers. Funny that u sent e at same time and it’s not here yet and that u mailed g and h last week and they aren’t here yet either. Lol. Thank you. Hope my 4 make it to u to you soon also.
Comment: I love the boot envelope! Thank you! And the envelope was posted Sept 8. Don't know if it was slow from your end or mine. Stuff gets stuck in Houston sometimes before it arrives here.
Response: Glad that you finally received it. With the way things are now it could have been either or both. There has been problems with mail going through Kansas City ever since the distributation center was moved there in 2013.
Comment: Thank you for the cute cat card and stickers. Please tell Miss Annabelle that I will enjoy them and hopes she has a lovely day :) I showed her picture to my cat Kevin and he things she is purrfectly lovely !
Comment: Hi Barbara, thank you for the great selection of PCs, & for the extra. Also the envelope you mailed them in is just gorgeous - I love the Rhino sticker, the pattern of the paper, & the older owls postage. Take care ;)
Comment: Thanks for this fun ATC and the extra blanks. I use 4x6 PC blanks for mine. I can cut out an ATC and a 3.5 square out of each one. I get the heavier card stock so my designs don't bleed through. I love the sunflower card too! It brightened a gloomy day! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Another beautiful card, I love your taste in stationery! I appreciate the different playing cards too. I understand the challenge of sending multiple frankendeck swaps to the same partner. Thank you!
Comment: Thanks for the lean cuisine bowls cardboard. I love the lollipop the lion king and the Linus sticker is my fave. Thanks so much Barbara. Always love swapping with ya. Btw do u live alone???? Do u have kids /grandkids??? Mindy
Comment: Barbara, I loved the photos you sent, especially the postcard with the elephants! The afgan is beautiful too! I can't imagine how time consuming using the black yarn would be; That would make my eyes cross! I had to laugh about your sticker-decorated computer! I can see how that would brighten up using it! Thanks for the photos and best wishes to you!
Response: Thank you for the rating and also thank you for sending your email to me. I loved seeing the pictures that you chose to send.
Comment: Love,love,love the coin and tag.They will be added to my coloring in journal.Thank you so much for joining swap and for your lovely art work.The extras will be put to good use also,thanks again!
Comment: 2 postcards from ya in one day is awesome to me. Thanks for the Sheba card from Annabell. I laughed at your note too. We are inheriting 2 male kitties this wknd. My aunt unexpectedly passed last Thursday and we are getting her cats. They weren’t gonna be able to keep them together and I said let me have the cats. I already have 2 females well that are going to have to get over themselves and let Harley and felipe move in. It’s not like they have much of a choice. Lol. Thank you
Comment: Great stamps! Wonderful tie in with the movies theme!
I've seen Casablanca but you know what classic I've never seen is Gone With the Wind...someday.
Thanks for everything, stay healthy, and best wishes, Mar/skinny52
Comment: Thank you so, so much Barbara!!! Everything is perfect - funny story. The beautiful piece of fabric you sent me? Years ago, my Mom and I made my first quilt. Guess what fabric I used in it?! You got it!! It brings back beautiful memories. thank you so much.
Response: So glad that I could make you happy. I always like it when something brings back happy memories.
Comment: Thank you very much for such a cute cat PC. I see you got the Cat PC's from Amazon. I have the same ones & just love them! So thank you for it, for as one to keep. I bet your kitty so sweet! My cat is too & she just loves being in high places. So, Some years back, we built her a obstacle with stairs, walk way, & hammock & them along the walls. She loves it so much! Have a wonderful day!
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart. The only cards I can find locally are touristy cards so I have to order others online. I have bought many cards over the years from Amazon. Sounds like your cat has things really nice. I have seen pictures on facebook of things like that built for cats or ferrets.
Comment: I love this swap. You were so detailed and I just loved it.. Looks like a real book and the stamp was perfect.. Thankyou
Response: Thank you. The photos I used for the card were actually the covers of the paperback book. I bought both the Kindle version and the paperback one. Love having actual books where I know the author.
Comment: I love the giraffe postcard...giraffes are one of my favorite zoo animals. I didn't realize there are 9 sub species though. Interesting how animals are different in so many ways, just like people. Thank you for this swap!
Response: Thank you. So glad that I was able to send something that you liked. If you get a chance our zoo is open (requiring face masks) and you can see our giraffe family We don't know how much longer we will have 2 year old Konza as there is a recommendation for him to go to a different zoo they just haven't finalized travel yet. They can also be seen on the You-tube channel TopZooKTWU
Comment: yeah, cutie cardinal! <3 Thank you so much for this lovely ATC. I really liked the information on the cardinal you printed up for me. ^.^ Cheers!
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart. I am glad that you liked everything I sent. When I lived in the other trailer park I used to see many cardinals in my yard but when I moved my trailer across town
I no longer see them.
Comment: I was surprised when your name showed up as my partner. We've been partnered up so many times but I greatly appreciate the fact that you keep notes on that you've sent to me so that you do not keep sending the same thing. Thank you for that oh, I love receiving your highly-decorated and pretty letters
Response: Thank you for the 5 with heart. I try to take pictures of all I send but sometimes I miss doing it . It really helps when I get someone like you that I have sent many swaps to.
Comment: Hi Barbara, you always give great tips on food snacks and I appreciate it. Interested in this Jolly Time Healthy Pop! Thank you xo
Response: Glad you like the card. I have been trying new things over the last few months as I am working with a weight management group in the clinic/hospital group that my Doctors are affiliated with. I get to talk with one of the ARNPs once a month and they are really great about recommending things to try.
Comment: Thank you for all of the lovely kitty items ❤️ I'm sorry to hear about your kitty that ran away. My grandmother had a cat that got out once and we never did find him. It's always so sad when that happens. He was a really friendly boy, so I'm confident someone took him in.
Comment: I love this zoo life card and the zebra stickers. I really love the koala on the front ( my parents held a koala when they visited Australia sometime ago) Micah loved the facts. We loved the washi too!!!! My hubby pointed out maybe we should go to an old record store in town and start using old record albums for our hard to find letters.... like y and z and x and q. You may find an old album cover soon. Take care
Album covers make good cards. I have one displayed on a bookshelf That I received a couple years ago with a picture on it of Dolly Parton.
Comment: This was a nice swap! The USPS was not so kind to the envelope. But ironically, the contents were still inside even though both sides were opened. I loved the recipe it sounds quite yummy! The other items enclosed suit my tastes as well. Everything was quite lovely and your handmade envelopes are cute! Thanks again for the swap and the cuteness of the cupcakes!
Comment: I'm SO sorry for the late rating; your envelope was in a pile of mail that got soaked in water and dried together and I've been slowly taking it apart, trying to minimize the damage. I am so glad only the envelope of your got messed up, because I will be keeping all of these postcards and framing them! They are the perfect addition to almost all the rooms in the house.
Comment: Thanks so much for all you sent! What a cool idea to make a card out of a sci-fi cover---I loved that! I'm going to look for that book. I loved everything, especially the alphabet cat stickers.
Comment: What a great upcycled piece of cardboard. Love the play on words too! I love that it’s from you’ve got mail a great movie and it says yay you’ve got mail. Thanks so much. I love all Tom hanks and meg Ryan movies. They are really great together.
Comment: I love the Polar bears PC! Congratulations on the weight loss! Keep it up. Not easy to do that in this time. I'm staying pretty stable, but not where I want to be. Happy 1st Birthday to your great grand-daughter! What a treasure! My 1st grandson just turned 2 at the beginning of March. I'm hoping for more, but we'll see. Stay safe!
Comment: Thank you for the PC - my cats were all really riled up and running all over and I later discovered the little cellophane bag that used to be filled with catnip I had put on a very high shelf. I dread to think who or how it was gotten down!
Comment: Thank you for the cards and nice note on the kite card, it's so cute! That's interesting about your dad's job in AL, space exploration is interesting to me! Take care and hope all is well with you. <3
Comment: Wow this was like Christmas! I love the way you put this together and the contents! I really love the envelopes and that was the sweetest little kitten notecard 😭 sooooo cute uwu also Giraffe is one of my fave animals!
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart. I am glad that I was able to pick things you liked. The little kitten notecard is one of my favorites. It came from Dollar Tree and I have bought several packages of that one. I have been watching out giraffes on youTube and in person for the last couple of years since the 2 babies were born in July and August 2018. You can see them on the TopZooKTWU youTube channel.
Comment: Thank you for sending the coloring PC. I'm anxious to do my section because everyone has done such an excellent job. Makes it more of a challenge. Also thanks for the extra card. That one will be beautiful when done with all the gold highlights. Thanks again.
Comment: Thank you very much for the heart that you put into this swap - your kitty label and kitty stickers on the outside envelope, the kitty card, your kitty’s pics and the postcard you made me and the really sweet story you shared about your darling Suzy Q, I loved it!
Comment: Thank you for this adorable postcard. I grew up eating wild rabbits. Adopted one from a friend of my kids. Loved her but had to give her away. She started eating anything that was wood. I love her and miss her to this day.
Comment: So I hope double chunk and Chocolate chip cookie dough are both good. Funny store both q’s were in mailbox today and I laughed. The resend has a postmark of the19th on it and the original has no markings whatsoever on it. It has no cancelled stamp and the barcode found on bottom is not on it it’s like it never visited a post office prob why it took so long to get here. Barbara thank u for both q’s much appreciated and I cannot wait for u to see my U!
Comment: Rcvd stevia today! (Q still has not made it yet 😢 😡
Response: I will resend the Q card this afternoon. I got another box of Quest protein bars. This one is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. The first one was Quest Double Chocolate Chunk. So we will see which one gets there first.
Comment: Thanks for the postcard, I hope you can do those things very soon again!
Response: Well the zoo is opening tomorrow for members and Monday for pubic. Outdoors only except for one building which will be pass through to make everything one way. Recommend wearing masks and limiting number of people at one time. I will wear the mask so that I can go out.
Comment: Oh my goodness, Barbara!!! This is the BEST PC I’ve gotten so far!! I absolutely LOVE it ❤️ Thank you so much!! And you’re the first person to comment on my user name. Star Trek is my first love :) please message me if you would like to become nerd buddies!!! Hugs ~Jean
Comment: You colored yours, how pretty!! Thank you so much for this great party!! :)
Adding: I love the front of the PC too, but I was totally looking in the background to see if Pennywise is around! :)
Comment: Hi Barbara,
I am sorry that it has taken me some time to get your rating done. It was not that I forgot you, but it has been that I only have so much energy.
It is and was exciting when I opened your envelope and saw your name. It had been awhile since we had swapped and so I was happy to be swapping with you again.
You are like me, in that I use to do the Scribble Art when I was growing up. So, I enjoyed doing it again as it brought back some fond memories.Thank you for your beautiful work and the use of your special pens you used. They brought unique colors to your art. I look forward to my Collection of ART A DAY that I did. Then I will add it to my Larger ATC COLLECTION.
Comment: Thanks for the pure protein chunk! I love the pesto sticker , the Potato chip sticker, and esp the 👁 ❤️ 🍕 sticker!!!!! Thanks so much and always HPpy to see u in a swap. Sorry ur machine quit
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart. I got a new machine from Amazon that is a lot like the old one but more portable and lighter. I didn't want a computer run one at my age. I don't use them very often and more basic things rather than fancy designs.
Comment: Barbara... LOVE the images you found! The sunset at the Arches Nat'l Park is amazing.. and the Canada one, looks like I picture the "Canadian Outback" :-) Also... love the Elephant Washi! Have you seen the new Elephant documentary on Disney? It's Fabulous!
Response: Thank you. I watched the documentary last week and really enjoyed it. I will be glad when our zoo opens back up so that I can see our 2 senior girls that we have there. I love watching them.
Comment: Thanks for the Cheerios. Got a similiar cheerios from my partner. Thanks Barbara. Rating u for fox too
I love the Oscar stamp , the owl stickers and wherever did ya find an Olives sticker ? I love to
Response: I really don't remember where the Olives sticker came from. It was on a sheet of food stickers that I received in a sticker swap. There was another one that I put on my other partners card of a bottle of Olive oil.
Comment: Thank you for your postcard Barbara - it arrived this morning and it's great, I even bought an avocado this afternoon! I'm not a fan of avocado's unless they're in guacamole which I LOVE
It's great receiving anything through the post at the moment - thanks again and stay safe!
Comment: Thanks for the postcards! I loved the Kansas gunfighters and the Paris cards
Who knew what the real gunfighters looked like - not like the TV programs, for sure! They look like a few people I know! haha! Thanks again! Getting tired of staying home, that's for sure!
Love Swap-bot to break up day day and get some mail! Happy Swapping!
Comment: Oh my goodness! I am absolutely drooling over the bold colors, the flower pattern, the tie-dye, and the map envelopes! They are absolutely beautiful. I cannot wait to use them along with the little papers for address labels. Hehe.. I love to upcycle little scraps of scrapbook paper. :) In the meantime, be safe and be well.
Comment: I LOVE That you used a VCR tape box chunk this month! I do that, too! I hate throwing away the VCR tape but sometimes you can get good movies for .25 and they make perfect postcards! Thank you, Barb! xo
Response: When I got these they were . 50 cents at a local thrift store. I have also seen them at garage sales for cheap also. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you very much for the five(5) cards. First Venus card for me!! I guess the post office took its time delivering since on digit was left off my zip-code. We have to make them work sometimes. LOL
Response: Oops. Must have been a senior moment. At least you got it.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely mountain lion card. We have a lot of mountain lions in our local mountains and towns that are in the foothills - people take photos of them as they are going through their backyards - beautiful but I would probably freak out a bit! Take care and be well! <3
Response: Thank you for your rating and heart. I found out a little more about our pair as the keepers did a facebook live about them a few days ago. They are Dakota (male) and Cassie (female) They are both beautiful and healthy at 12 years old.
Comment: Thank you for all the cute Cat PC's! Especially the shaped one. There's I just keep & put in my photo albums. I tried to send a shaped PC once & it was about as big as a regular PC. But post office had a fit! So, If I ever send something like again, it will be put in an envie.
Response: Glad you liked the cards. I have received a couple of the shaped cat cards naked but it has been awhile. I got that card in another swap like this.
Comment: Thanks for the hamburger helper chunk. I love eating it but hate how it scores on ww. I try making a healthier version with whole wheat noodles and ground turkey and fat free cheese but well hh tastes better. Lol. Thanks for the horse hand and hearts stickers too. Thank u for the hot wheel stamp too. Thank you so so much.
Comment: Thank you for the great cards. I received 2 swaps from you today. What fun !! The other was the outer space PC. Yes we have been swap partners a few times. That's what makes swap-bot so much fun. Thanks again.
Comment: thank you for the postcards. i now have one from Kansas in my collection:-). I love the other one as well. love the artsy feel and look of it. i think im going to use it in a journal i am working on:-)
Comment: Not sure what happened at the sorting facility but sadly the card went thru upside down and got a bit mangled, the stamp is not cancelled though! Neat card, the damage almost lends to the vintage theme. Thanks for the PC, hope 2020 is starting out well for you:)
