I had good mail today.
I have been waiting very patiently
(OK, not very patiently)
for the return postcards from
Lenna's Creative Swaps Mail Art Postcard Swap,
and today the third and final postcard arrived.
I am so happy with the postcards I received
so top marks to the artists and
to Lenna for selecting them for me.
The theme was
'A Summer's Day'.
|'A Summer's Day is A Summer Camp Song!'|
This wonderfully colourful card is from Jewels.
She hand painted the watermelons.
I love the image and those juicy colours!
Jewels explains all about her postcards
(including the others she made for the swap)
I greatly admire Jewels' style and am very
happy to have another of her creations.
|'A Summer Day...........With Sunflowers.'|
The final postcard is from Sharon Walworth
and unfortunately it suffered on its journey from the US.
Sharon's postcards in their pre-postal condition
can be seen on Creative Swaps
The brilliant quote says,
"Bring me the sunflowers
Crazed with the love of light."
This beautiful postcard really brings back happy
memories of our summer holiday in Italy,
when we drove past fields and fields of sunflowers.
So those are the 3 superb postcards I received.
I'm extremely happy with my selection
and enjoyed taking part.
Just to remind you, for the swap I made
3 postcards like this one;
|'To be once more a little child for one bright summer day'|
I know Sharon received one of them.
I hope she and the other 2 recipients like them.
Lenna is taking a necessary break from
Creative Swaps following the recent illness
and sad passing of her father,
but when the time is right her intention
is to return to arranging her wonderful swaps.
I'll definitely be signing up for more!
