Extra Care with Outgoing Cards

Standard

I am taking more and more care when I send my postcrossing cards. If the potential recipient of a card from me has subjects they really like or specific hobbies, I do try and relate in some way with the card I send.

These are some of my recent cards I’ve sent. Natalia Germany loves tea, Michelle in USA loves outside art and Anastasia from Ukraine likes old buildings.

Sirpia in Finland Likes to receive cards of significant building and Daia in Russia likes the sea.

Natalia in Belarus likes to receive cat cards, Marco in Germany writes fairy stories so I thought this card might inspire him and  Eugenia in Russia likes drawing and I thought this was a fun drawing.
They are posted off with a blessing too! 🙂

As well as those super cards I received these from other friends, Charlotte and  Cathy in USA and Nelleke in the Netherlands.

The diversity is amazing! 🙂

It’s a shame Melva lives in Spain, otherwise I would be asking her for gelli plate printing lessons, I’ve got a lot to learn 🙂

Outgoing mail

A  card from Nelleke arrived this morning, she lives in the Netherlands and says she got married in this wonderful building.

My outgoing cards today are of my little town of Fakenham going to Kitty in the Netherlands and Pavel in Belarus.

All packaged up and ready to go is a Debbie Osborn Art Studio calender going to Tina in the USA.

Un-official Elevated Envelope

Something else lovely was dropped into my mail box yesterday,

……..my first Elevated Envelope.

It was a surprise from my mail art friend, Cynthia, complete with a little vintage style note card.

Something I’ve never seen before, it had a recipe on the back!I’ve just realised that I have posted Cynthia something in return and forgot to photograph it to show you! 🙂
