Lisa's card to Joss

This awesome postcard arrived from Lisa yesterday in perfect condition.
This gorgeous zebra on the front next to my address says:
"A leopard cannot change its spots, nor a zebra its stripes- proverb"
This is the back of it,with a beautiful cerelean blue (I think) background, another zebra, glittery paint and a lovely realistic material spider's web.
The completed effect is just fabadabadoolishus.
Thanks so much Lisa.
I love it.

Lolo's postcard for Lisa

I found this bouquet of pansies on the arm of my chair today after work. I just love pansies. They say welcome spring to me.  Thanks so much to Lolo for sending this little bit of spring.

Card from Lisa for Caroline

This little beauty buzzed in yesterday! You really need to see this in person as Lisa has built up lots of texture on the petals and leaves which unfortunately the scanner hasn't managed to show well. But, isn't it pretty ? Love the colours and that quote is perfect! Thank you so much, Lisa - it's a perfect card for me!

A Beauty From Lolo For Cat!

This gorgeous postcard from Lolo stamped with lovely pink, purple and blue flowers and these mesmerizing hand-painted eyes arrived today!

Notice the perfectly placed Lotus!

On the back written in Lolo's beautiful script and pretty blue ink is a quote by Hubert Humphrey  ~
'The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.'
Then at the bottom is a little note in Lolo's pretty writting and bright pink ink that reads:
'picture your head filled with the flowers of friendship whenever you get a nasty migraine.'

I know we're at the end of this project and I really want you ALL to know how blessed I feel to have had the opportunity to get to know you all!  Each one of you are strong, loving, caring, beautiful, talented, artistic, warm, women and even though I have never 'met' you in the real world I am honored to call you all my 'friends!'

Thank you, Joss for introducing me to all of these incredible ladies!

Ravens for Lolo!!!

Well you can all guess who made this beauty!! The Queen of stitches and sparkles and fun!
That little strip of dotted fabric at the top is silver dots on black, hard to see on the scan. I love it!  And the main raven is bejeweled like a flower. Wow, Lynn, I love this card!
Thanks so much!
It was a perfect day brightener on this thunder-stormy day :)

coming to the end...what's next?

I just sent out my last, 10th card to Lolo. What' next? Are we up for another round? We could just start over! Want to vote?
One YES vote from me, who is just getting warmed up having cleaned my art studio this weekend and found gobs of collage materials I didn't know I had!

Catching up on posting the great postcards I've received

This first beauty is from DebraKay (aka - wild and crazy Deb). Isn't this great? I had a hoot of a laugh when I got it - I wonder what the postman thought.

The next one is from Patty - and yes, it did get here in one lovely piece. Look at that kitty just eyeing those poor innocent fishies...
And Mizz Cat sent along this colorful crazy typical Cat with a Picasso quote on the back. Look closely at his eyes - took me a minute to see the wild eyed look. I love him Cat - he's colorful and fun.
And last, but certainly not least, from Caroline - this lovely card and yes...you are so right. And we all should enjoy the journey shouldn't we.

I'm a bit behind in sending out my latest postcards but they should be in the mail by next week.
