Post Card / Journal Page


A few weeks ago I taught a few workshops at Ginny's Small Studio Workshop Series . I had a great time and really enjoyed meeting Ginny and her husband John. I decided to send a Thank-You note in the form of a postcard that doubled as a journal page. It's always fun to see what can go through the postal system. I sent this as you see it without an envelope (it's a postcard after all), but I don't see any cancellation marks on the stamps after Ginny posted it on her blog. I bet the Post Office took care for it's safe delivery by putting it in one of those clear plastic envelopes! The size of this "Postcard" is 6 1/2" X 10 1/2".

Hihi, I bet if your postal system had been able to read the dutch "vergiftigde balletjes=poisened balls" on the front of your card, they would have called the special forces to blow up your card!! ;-)I love the card, it is absolutely typically you style!
Sunny regards - Irma

What a beautiful post card! I'm can only imagine Ginny's excitement when she received it ... and the postman's inquisitive mind as to how it was created, lol.

How gorgeous! I am surprised that it made it, intact, through the postal system but I'm so happy that it did. Very cool, Ingrid...very cool, indeed.
Peace & Love,

I noticed the "vergiftigde balletjes" too... yep, you have a few Dutch blogreaders! I send collage postcard in a collage envelope to the USA last month but it made an U-turn right back to me - the Dutch postmen are not as smart I guess (after making the address REAL BIG and my send-adress real small, it was delivered right.. pfew)

Ingrid,
The post office did not put in anything. It came just as you intended. I think they probably passed it around and forgot to cancel it. It would have been hand cancelled as it would not go through the machine with the beads on it.
I love it.
Thank you again for everything.
XO Ginny

What a beautiful way to send a note to Ginny. I'm sure she was tickled. It was so nice to meet you at the workshop. I'm working on my Octopuses Garden as we speak (taking a break while my pages dry).
