Bright Sadness
All About Me...March 2011 Edition!

Hey, Mr. Mailman!

Hey, Mr. Mailman, bring me some mail! And, please, not the bills you're so fond of stuffing into my mailbox. Nope. I want the real stuff, thank you very much. get some "real" mail, I need to send some. So, I joined up for Hanna's postcard swap!

I collect postcards that are ready to be trashed - the ones advertising different events. I often find piles of them in various places long after the even they're advertising has taken place. I also keep a stash of cardboard from cereal boxes and the like, ready to be cut up and arted up.

Old text intrigues me, and I love the idea of giving it new life. Do I need to tell you that I have a stash of it as well? I didn't think so!

I grabbed some stamps, mostly flowers, because I really need some spring and bright colors in my life about now. And, I am determined to use up some of my "stuff."

I began coloring with some twinkling H2Os but they frustrated me no end, so I switched over to water soluble colored pencils. I spent a good deal of my travel time to and from Pennsylvania this weekend, outlining them with a sharpie to make them "pop" a bit. I used stamp pads along the edges and then lettered them with a marker. They make me smile!



Hi...I'm in the swap too. I love how you did your cards with text in the background. They turned out great! I'd love for Mr. Mailman to drop one of them in my mailbox!!

Yummy postcards, Miss Paula ! Twinkle H2O's are my favs! What frustrated you so much ? These spring cards are sure to bring some lovely joy to your swap mates.
Hugs to you, Wonderful One.


Lovely postcards! They really are smile-worthy!


Gorgeous Cards, try putting twinkling h2os on top of the pencil, they will add some shimmer..

What wonderful postcards! I just love the flowers!


Yay! I got one today!


I just did a test comment, because I commented on your next post and neglected to put in the code. SO. What I SAID was: thank you so much for your card! It's pretty and I love that you wrote a message on the back. The text you used is really cool. Thank you for swapping!

Grate cards, thanks for sharing.
