Send and Receive

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. From and to 1 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. From and to 2 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. From and to 3
Keep on mailing everyone, it’s a fantastic hobby! 🙂

Decoration

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.

Stamps
I would like to get some proper stamp paper to make them more realistic! 🙂
