Nothing much to show

As I had no mail the last few days.
But I made a card

And as they say;
"to send is to receive"
so I have my hopes up for the next few days

Mail art moments

But first, my latest Christmas card

 Christmas mail art

I coloured the envelopes with coffee,
cut up an old card
and used some paper stars from last year.

Mail art for a swap on swap-bot
"favourite animal swap"

I'm love how the back of the envelope 
turned out. 
I used a page from an old dictionary with words 
that start with "kat", not that they all
have something to do with cats, but 
it's the idea that counts.
