I was very excited to get started on this months Crusade. Since, Michelle told us we had to do it in 60 minutes. Which is pretty much great for me since I only have 90 minutes between picking up and dropping off boys for school each day! As, I started working on this challenge I thought about how I could tie this into my own goals as well! One thing I want to do more this year is be better about sending mail art. I am in love with postcards. Yesterday, Miss College Ink was over for some play time in the studio while her air force man was out ice fishing! We started reading some of the vintage postcards I have collected! Our favorite postcard was someone telling their family/friend they are now engaged! LOL! Okay, sorry I am off track here…so instead of 2 page journal spread…I cut my pages into postcards (6) and then instead of snowflakes I did hearts snowflake style!
I used a postcard stamp on the back even 😉
I am off to the Post Office today to stock up on postcard stamps! Thanks so much for stopping in! Enjoy the elements 🙂 We are getting a snow storm today so I really will be braving the elements!
