From Amy - I'm loving the silver technique she used on the envelope. And of course the note on the Charley Harper art. And as she wrote, check out the 5.3c vintage non-profit stamp.
Fun rubber stamps from Cathy. The colors work so well with the La Florida stamp from a few years ago.
St Patrick's day luck in green and gold from Jannie.
Jean sent this great graphic piece inside a glassine envelope. Love the clever use of the C as part of the address.
And this awesome envelope with one of my favorite stamps ever from Royal Mail from Tina M.
Whaou. What a great set of envelopes! All very different but all very nice.ReplyDelete
That's the best thing about the envelope exchanges, don't you think?Delete
The one from Jean is a favourite (with the addition of the love stamp! Crazy because of love?). Also, the last one. And she stuck the stamp in the right way!ReplyDelete
I'm afraid that Harper is going to appear on Mail Adventures during the challenge, too.
I hadn't thought about crazy for/in love. If I guess, it is because of the color (and maybe the graphic design of the writing on the stamp).Delete
Charley Harper is always good!
I keep forgetting that this is a blogging challenge... it certainly feels like it, as I haven't finished my whole alphabet yet.
I've just finished, thanks to postcards sent by Heleen and Bryon for the most difficult letters. Which letters are you struggling with? I owe you at least one idea!Delete
It is more about choosing which specific word out of two or three different topics for the remaining letters. And actually getting them written! So writing the posts is more of an issue, really.Delete
These are terrific fun!ReplyDelete
(Do you find your mail carrier glaring at you occasionally, tho'?)
No, not really. The most regular guy really liked the mail, even had a favorite piece from a while ago (it was a banana-shaped piece).Delete
Hi Phillip - you are having fun with these ... just by chance does Jannie live in Austen? - no looks like Des Moines! It just might have been an amazing co-incidence ...ReplyDelete
They are amazing envelopes aren't they .. clever art work too ..cheers Hilary
Yes, Des Moines, so no amazing co-incidence yet.Delete
Wow, I'm so impressed. Thanks for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
I love how people are creative in a different way to me - makes for a fun exchange every time.Delete
Very fun envelopes. These would be great to receive in the mail.ReplyDelete
It is awesome when one is sticking out among the bills and leaflets.Delete
Pleased to see the GB monkey featured on one of the envelopes.ReplyDelete
This was Tina's first exchange, and I'm really pleased she did.Delete
What a fun project.ReplyDelete
Dreams exchange, envelope exchange, so nice to see mail/communication-related posts! Looking forward to the rest of the alphabet!ReplyDelete
But I agree that it's a challenge indeed!Delete
As you know, a lot of what mail at is about is connecting with others. I'm glad that comes across in these posts.Delete
