mail call

It's time to share some of the amazing mail I've received recently. I have to say, I just love the feeling of anticipation as I head to the mail box each day.  Is there going to be a beautifully decorated envelope, a pretty postcard?  There's always a slight let down if I don't have any snail mail that day, but it's only momentary because the anticipation the next day is just as high.  I just love the mail now!

Here's who's been in touch.....
This stitched wonder from Jenna. - my first from Shannon's International Postcard Swap.

Simple and graphic from Carlene at TaylorMaide (the back is a map stitched to the front!)

This beautifully layered card is from a new mail buddy, Kathy, who found me on Pinterest.

This card and shimmery ATC arrived from Leslie.

Another card from the International Swap - Lauren had her son Anthony help out!

Last, but not least, this happy card arrived from Nydia - those yellow stars sparkle!

Thanks to everyone!  
I played catch up last weekend and sent out tons of postcards, so hopefully you have yours in the mail soon.   Here's what I made - over 20 cards!






 Let's keep those mailboxes happy! :)

  7. Hi Terrie, no wonder you say that you haven't had time to work in your journal. You have been a very busy gal. This looks like a lot of fun and how wonderful to be getting all of this colorful mail. All I get is junk mail and bills, LOL.
    This has been fun. I enjoy, so much, getting to know my blogging friends better with each visit.
    Have a wonderful day.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)
