Mail Art Time!

Oh my poor Snail Mail Listers! They have to be so patient with me. Some of them have not even received one card yet. I did warn you in advance it might take some time, but I still want to do a bit better this year and send out at least one set of cards every month so all of you may get one or two cards a year.

Very recently I finally got around to making a series of eight cards again. The reason it is mostly eight at a time is that I use these paper blocks with eight different varieties of the same colour in them. In this case that variety was purples and pinks.

Here are the cards up close:

Making these cards is a pretty time consuming job. I enjoy it very much though. The collage and setting up an attractive layout is always a challenge. It also makes me use lots of my washi tapes and pretty papers and stamps.

As for the Snail Mail List I am not taking any new 'members'. There's forty people on it now and that's the maximum I wanted. I'm very grateful for all of you who showed an interest in it when I first put the call out.

For those of you not on the list or whose turn it isn't this time around I hope you at least enjoyed looking at the cards and that somebody else is sending you some lovely art mail.

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy day.
