Sometimes I sned postcards to myself simply because I know that I'm likely to get a favorable response.

Whenever the source for collagable material plays out--I usually turn to the trash that comes from out of my…

Great ATC from Angie (sans Snooky)

Sorry this picture isn't clearer. i wanted to post this ATC that came with Angie's CatPlus card. She says it's done using paint, collage, and stamps. I think it's really ornate and I like that the word "sentiment" pops out at me.  I think one of the circles fell out but like the orange dot. Thanks…
