The mail artist Babs Bird has lost her battle with cancer and passed away on Sunday. She was only on IUOMA for a brief time, but I know a few of us remember her. And those that frequent IG might know her as Corduroy Cat.

I remember her at IUOMA! And also, I think, her unexpected departure that caused a stir.

So sorry to learn this news.

Oh, so sad to learn of Babs Bird passing. She was here at IUOMA for a short time, and created fabulous collage cards,

...but a certain "ol' star" lady attacked many of us with her "copy right", possessive theories, and upset many, including Babs Bird. Several left IUOMA in 2014/2015 . How sad was that, missing them dearly.
