Mail Bombed

I've been getting
Mail Bombed
single handedly by my friend, Carol 
 
We have both been bitten by the mail art bug and specifically decorative envelopes. 

While Carol has been bombing my mailbox with fun envelopes, I've only managed to get one envelope to her.



Carol has been really busy creating cool envelope art. 
 
This one was to kick off my birthday month.  I love starting early and this birdie envie got things going.  Carol took ballet at one point in her life, so she knows what a ballerina looks like!  Adorable, huh.
 
Isn't this one fun!  It's Spring!



This one's patriotic.


These next two have been written with some kind of pen that leaves the ink looking shiny after it's dry.  And a slight puffy look to it also.


The shiny confetti is absolute fun!  I know the shiny can't be seen here, but it really is shiny.


And then this dear friend of mine (Carol) got Jean Wilson, Pushing the Envelope to send me an envelope created by her.  What a beauty!
 
And inside this beauty was a bonus envelope...
 
On the back of this bonus envelope, Jean wrote that she hadn't enough time to finish it.  It seems her intent was to fill in more spaces with color.
 
How I've been loving going out to my mailbox lately!  Thank you so much Carol and Jean!
 
A Good Mail Day is hard to beat. 
Ask me how I know that!  LOL

Gosh, that is being artmail bombed, what fun to receive these. I like the ballerina and the confetti best. Like Karen, I would like to know what was in these envelopes - cards? flat presents? but if the envelope is the present, then that's fine too. Would you like my address, Carol?
