jengd said...

Fabulous boxes- what fun! Thanks for sharing gifts on YOUR anniversary! :) btw- did you happen to get my email about last month's ATC swap?

Denise J. Phillips said...

Hi jengd:)
I think if you look at the last post, (the new ATC Swap post) I've been sending you a series of emails for over a month attempting to contact you with my mailing address attached, and requesting your mailing address to send you the ATC's from the previous ATC Swap. Your emails I've sent aren't returning undeliverable, so I figure they must be in some junk file of yours. I left you a comment last month as well in regards to this. Email me your address as I have the ATC's sitting and waiting on you since March:)

Denise J. Phillips said...

And Thanks everyone!!! I'll be using the Random Generator Site to choose the 4 Winners so as to be fair!!! Woo Hoo!!! LOL!!!

Tarnished Rose said...

Those are so neat! I did not know they carried a kit to make a box to hold ATC's.

Tarnished Rose said...

BTW.....There is not a Comment option on your Facebook page. I can "like" your posts but cannot leave a comment under them. Maybe because it's a subscription?
