The first card is a birthday wish to my friend Cara. She and her husband are theater people, show biz in their blood. I think she will the this dramatic card made from magazine pages.
Eva and I made this set. A few months ago we tried out a new set of inks on a large piece of paper. Of course I kept our experiment. Last night I gave it an orange ink wash allover. Then I cut the paper into postcard size blocks.
This sweet card found it's way into my mailbox. It's from Corrine at

My last card was sent out to a Postcrossing member.
Most of these members are postcard collectors and not so interested in mail art.
Corrine steered me toward http://www.good-mail-day.com/ for mail art swaps.
For those who like snail mail you may want to click "confessions of a pen thief" blog. This blog is fun and often has interesting postal facts and oddities.
This morning my friend Lynn told me about http://www.swap-bot.com/.
I made a quick stop. Seems like a place for lots of art swap groups to post. Will go back and check it out. Stay tuned for a more informed report.
