Postcards To Mail

I have a small stack of
POSTCARDS
that I will be mailing out...
 
 
Indulge (Fabric)
Live the Life (Paper)
The car is made with actual cancelled postage stamps.
 
Air Mail (Paper)
The bird is made with Washi Tape.
 
012 House (Paper)
The house is made with Washi Tape.
 
Cuppa Love (Paper)
The teacup and saucer are made with Washi Tape.  "Love" is attached with mounting dots.
 
Now, my problem is where to mail them. 
 
If you see one you'd like to find in your mailbox, leave me a comment about it, and in a few days I will choose recipients and get your mailing addresses.
 
Wishing you a Good Mail Day!
Annie

I've already had several of your glorious artworks, Annie, so it would be greedy to deprive someone else of one - however -(!) if no-one else wants the wonderful one with the man and the cat fixing the car, I would love it as my father used to spend many happy hours mending old bangers.
Your new house one is really splendid too, as are they all, of course.

Gerri said...

These are so clever and fun. I love that each card is so different than the next, and there is so much thought put in each one. I would be proud to give one a home. Thank you for the chance!

I love your postcards, Annie, and you know that. I have one of them right in front of me when I sit at my sewing machine. The AIR MAIL bird is peeping my name, on that I'm sure. So now let me just wait.....

Laura said...

They are all beautiful - and all have birds on which is always a good thing :) - and like Gerri said, I would be proud to give one a home

I love the airmail bird! The old car too. Both remind me of travel and would make a great little wall decoration in our fifth wheel as we travel this summer! I can actually see taking pictures with the bird as I travel the country this summer. I love sending postcards when I travel! You inspired me years ago to create a postcard for a young cousin's graduation-relatives were asked to send postcards of support to her .

Ramona said...

I like the old car one. That is the message I NEED to follow. They are all wonderful as usual!

Cindy Sharp said...

Really, I like them all....but the little yellow house makes me smile.

Oh Annie you have done it again with your great postcards. I love that postage stamp car and the last one with the teacup too the best, but of course they are ALL wonderful!!!

I am wondering Annie, have you ever tried using the cancelled postage stamps on a fabric background? I think when I get a chance, I may give it a try that way, but wanted to know if you have tried it yet and if you had success with it?

Thanks for the lovely eye-candy, as usual.

OMG, they are all fabulous! Opening the mailbox to one of these beauties will indeed make your/my day happier!!

Gill said...

I love them all Annie but my favourite has to be the 012 house!!

Mary said...

These are all wonderful. The indulge bird is precious. If I had a chance at one, I would not mind any or all of them. You do such wonderful work.

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said...

They are wonderful!! I love the tea one!!!

Marei said...

Oh, Annie! Beautiful work as always. I'd choose the car because I've been collecting stamps for (ahem!) almost 50 years. And I love the sentiment to 'live the life'. So important to remember we only get one life so we should be sure to LIVE each day. Thanks for the chance to get one of your wonderful postcards.

Lins Artyblobs said...

They are all lovely and I am terrible at decisions so I would be happy to give any one of them a new home. I think my first choice would be the car, I like the cat peeking over the wheel.

I'm not leaving a comment for the award since I have one of your lovely designs (though I could use another), but I had to comment. These are lovely. I can't get over that the car was made with cancelled stamps! Awesome. Also, what is Washi tape? I've heard about it but don't know anything about it. Just curious.

Joelle said...

Oh my goodness! Your cards are so fantastic. I finally started making one each month to send to my one year old granddaughter so she has snail mail to remember me by. I have been sewing them but I may just have to covert to paper. It seems to increase your options and YOUR creativity.

ellen gets crafty said...

I love them all!! Since I am one of the lucky ones who have received a postcard from you - please select someone else (unless you really, really want to send me one!!)

Lesley said...

Oh my goodness...another amazing page full of precious postcards! I have a little red birdie postcard received from Yours Truly so will watch from the wings as your postcards get mailed to other lucky recipients! You are just so wonderfully creative!

Createology said...

You have been creating your magical fun mail art again Annie dear. Each one is very fabulous. These will bring lots of smiles to everyone who sees them, delivers them and receives them. Happy Creative Hearts...

carol said...

Holy cow, you've been creating more stuff than just amazing envelopes! How cool is that? I see you have lots of takers.......I am already blessed with your mail art and LOVE every piece!

Grammasheri said...

Oh I most definitely want to put my name in the hat for one of your artful cards! The Beautiful, Crazy Love has captured my heart. So fun to participate in your giveaways, Annie.

Judy1522 said...

I would definitely love to get one of your postcards they are all beautiful. I cannot even pick a favorite so would love to be surprised.

Mrs.Pickles said...

lovely work!

Chris R said...

OMG! they are gorgeous - all of them! The "live the Life" makes my heart beat a bit faster :)

Debbie said...

Oh Annie, I'd love one. They are so sweet. I'd even trade some great card stock for one.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Have a great day.

Karen said...

Gorgeous! These are so creative :)

Cynthia said...

You are so creative Annie! I love the car! So very cool!

Elsa said...

Well, of course I'd love to have a post card from you! There are all lovely!

cjsrq said...

How to choose just one? They are all just wonderful! But if pressed I would have to choose "Indulge" or the tea cup. Thank you for this lovely opportunity to win one of your creations.

nettie said...

Wow, I have not seen anything like your lovely postcards! They are so sweet. It would be IMPOSSIBLE to choose, as I LOVE them all. It would be hard for me to send one, so I would probably frame it and keep it in my office or sewing room.
Thanks for sharing!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Your talent never ceases to amaze me! I have a soft spot for the blue bird, but I really love what you have done with all of them!

Tonya Reichard said...

I would be honored to receive a postcard made by you. I absolutely love the Indulge postcard

Connie Gage said...

You have been busy! Absolutely love the Indulge and the Cuppa Love but any one of them would be wonderful to receive. Found your website 2 weeks ago & haven't taken my eye off it since! You do amazing work with words & a few pictures! Thank you for sharing your talents.

Miss Iowa said...

OMGoodness! I love the Airmail card--gives me a great idea for the shoebox full of vintage postage stamps I just bought. Would love to see your original in MY mailbox. Thanks so much.

Doris said...

The yellow house block is too sweet -- having juts bought a house, that we are working feverishly to fix up, home images grab me like mad these days!

linny said...

I'm sure one of these beauties would love to arrive in my letterbox. They are all beautiful & a surprise would be great. lyn.robyn.smith@gmail.com

Marsha Hodgkins said...

I would love to receive one of your lovely postcards, Annie. The "Live the Life" is my favorite but I like the one with the teacup made from washi tape also.

I'd be thrilled to find one in my mailbox! Thanks for the offer.

Your little postcards are such works of art! Anyone who follows me on flickr knows that I love birds! So I love all of your cards with birds! Especially the house with the birds on a wire...Thank you so much for sharing!

journalady® said...

I'd love to exchange a post card with you! It's one of my favorite sewing projects! I had left a comment a few days ago, but don't think it went through. Will Try again!

journalady® said...

oh good, I see it went through! Forgot to mention I especially love your bird post cards, and the *Indulge* is just precious!

Bri said...

All of them are wonderful. I especially like 012 House. So cute!
