Cartes Postales

Most of these postcards seem to have made their way to their destinations, so I thought I would show the series I recently made, which clearly reflects my great love for all things postal:
I always think it's kind of fun to add stickers to postcards that say, "liquid" or "fragile."  Silly humor on my part.  I definitely don't recommend putting the "fire hazard" label on a box you are trying to mail!

All of those fun labels, like "Special Delivery," "Air Mail," and "First Class Mail" came as a gift awhile ago from my online friend Karenann.  I am clearly indebted to her for my postal-themed art.  Do you see those airmail envelope stripes along the edges of the postcards?  Karenann created them by laying down alternating strips of red, white, and blue paper, and then making a laser copy of it, giving me permission to use and share it.  How generous is she?  (Very!)

Have a great weekend, everyone!

oh, these cards are so cool! I thought they were envelopes at first, with the red and white stripes...wonderful collection of stamps. The recipients will be thrilled!

These are wonderful. I got a bunch of labels like that from an online friend too and use them in my journal. But you made wonderful use of them here too.
