When I peeked in the post box today what did I see but your exquisite watercolor tree postcard! And you artist stamp is fantastic, it was done so professionally that I didn't even realize at 1st glance that it wasn't official. Well sir, now its your turn- so expect something in the mail for you soon!

hi Bill - yes, I am trying to spread my wings - a little! I am equally amazed to find you here too! I am not sure how often I will be able to visit but I love the quality and range of the design work I have seen here so far. All best! Colin

Hi Bill - thank you so much for the MA that graced my mailbox this week! I love the artistamps on the envelope, especially the 'Family Album'. Very cool ATCs - the first I've gotten with B&W photography and such nicely detailed information on the back. I was thrilled to find the artistamps you gifted me - these are the first I have ever gotten, so they are especially appreciated! Rachel

Yes, received the e-mail with attached image. It is the stamp I meant. You had a servive people could order that rubberstamp with their own address. Would be fun to restart that again so members could order it again. Will look for the one you made for me. Is lost somewhere in the large archive I have here. Sorry for delay in answering. Quite busy and also planning a trip next day going abroad. - Ruud janssen
