Here are some cards I received from my lovely Mailmaker friends from far and wide. Some handmade and some carefully chosen 🙂 Thanks Susanne, Iryna, Antoni, Josephene, Nelleke, Yuka and Deborah 🙂
I have had these lovely Postcrossing cards arrive from across the globe this week. The arts and crafts style card is from Alex in Germany and this very psychedelic one from Paula in Poland. This second one shimmers in the light as you move it around.
The cartoon postcard is from Annabelle in France and Sally in Hong Kong sent me this card that is an amazing reproduction of fabric.
A more traditional style card from Yumiko in Japan and here’s a tourist type card from Marianne in the Netherlands
It is amazing the different types of cards that arrive through my mail box, love it! 🙂
Here are some pairs for you, a different way to show you my mail. The card with the tulips was sent to me by my friend Nelleke in Germany and my return mail was this card created from one of my own collages. This next card you’ve already seen, a handmade Postcrossing card from Hiromi in Japan. Hiromi wanted me to send her a card from the UK, so I send a typical windmill from here in Norfolk. I got these lovely fairground horses, a photo by Deanie in the USA,. I returned the favour by sending another of my collage inspired postcards.
Keep on mailing everyone, it’s a fantastic hobby! 🙂
I do love it when people take the time to decorate the back of their postcards before sending them.
I got these two postcrossing cards from Hiromi in Japan and Kirsty in USA…
…..and along with their message and beautiful stamps they had added other decoration which adds so much to the enjoyment of receiving the postcard
I try to remember to decorate the cards I send, but unfortunately here in England the decorative stamp issues are very few and even then usually only stamps that can be used in the uk. I have started to make my own fake art stamps to add to the cards instead.
