Hi Karen, I am posting your postcard today 22nd July, I hope it doesn't take to long to reach you. Marion K

Ok. Great. Thanks. :) I sent alicien out last week (today is july 25) hopefully hers doesnt take too long. :) ive had lots of mailings in another group plus bilateral back injection (which did not work) but is ins protocol before surgery. So just trying to keep doing art any way!!! As its my joy!

Art is a great healer and way to take your mind elsewhere Karen, I am glad you find enjoyment in it.  I am the same, I suffer major depression and anxiety/PTSD and my art is a saviour, I just need to remember to make time for myself to do it.  Wishing you all the best xoxoxo

Marion,

I can't find my earlier post, but I wanted to let you know I sent your card out today.  I apologize for the delay, but I do hope you enjoy your card.

Sharon,

I received your lovely card and goodies!  Thank you so much.  I will post a picture as soon as I take one.  

Blessings to all,

Marcia

My lovely Andy Warhol themed post card and goodies. Thank you, Sharon! Cats are one of my favorite critters. You did a wonderful job.  I love the curious tilt of your cat's head. I really like the "Dragon Cat" doodle.  Many thanks!

Very happy you like the cat,Marcia !! Thanks for posting xx

Sorry, running very late Sharon! Swap is going in the post today.

Thank you Marion for the lovely card (above).  Apologies for taking so long to post on the site.  I seem to have placed the lovely embellishments you sent somewhere and I don't know where :(  - hopefully I'll find them when I need them.  Also, sorry again for sending yours late, but like I wrote - my initial enthusiasm  at getting back into these swaps seemed to be crushed by artist block.  I'm going to carry on though and have signed up again.  

Sounds like me, I put stuff away so I know where it is then forget where I put it lol.

These two amazing cards arrived ffrom Dabou on Friday with some great embellishments that I have already ear marked for a card.
