Over at,Cardmaking Paradise,the theme for
 this month's Members swap was another of Sara's brilliant ideas,'Mail Art' envelopes.  Although I had seen and heard of Mail Art, I had yet to try it out.I had a wonderful time creating my envelopes, so much so that I made quite a few extras.  Members from around the world joined in with this swap and I'm sure it made the 'Posties' smile. I know that the ladies at my local Post Office were very curious about them. 
 Here are three of the envelopes that I made for my swaps.

 I had such a fun making my swaps, and see how they could could easily become an addiction,that I'm hoping we will do another one next year.

I am always looking at new and lovely blogs and found
one a while ago, but hadn't put a link on my blog yet, so here you are - make yourself a drink and settle yourself down to enjoy Astrid’s beautiful blog and her gorgeous creations.


  1. Hi Su!!
    I was thinking of you today when I received a package with several pieces of bubble wrap! It reminded me of one of the techniques you used for your gorgeous mail art! You have the most amazing talent!!

  2. Beautiful creation, dear Su!
