Little messages to those I want to thank...


...and a special "Thinking of you" card.

I drew the bird on an old book page (with a reed pen) and scanned it to print it out on card stock. I used a bit of cheap eye shadow on the bird for a tint of color and some shimmer.  I found a vintage postcard online and added my "Thank You" message.  To finish the printed postcards, I glued patterned paper to the back and ink-brushed the edges (one picture shows the difference that made).  For the "Thinking of you" I sent the bird with some cheery music notes and added my message with stamps.  Now--to send out my little messenger birds...

  1. I like them....very original. I like your ideas. Charming. That seems so lame...I mean...I think words such as "I like" sound so bland ...but I don't want to be over flatterous and sound insincere...;)
