Frogs from Fabienne Lebaron

Some very cute frogs received from Fabienne. Also included was a very nice Origami frog that I could not scan. I have a big fan of Origami but I have never succeeded making an Origami frog. Well done Fabienne (and Merci beaucoup).

More paper bags sent

Trying to catch up with all the answers I have to send for my mail art call, I sent two envelopes made from the lateral sides of a Body Shop bag. One side had a text in French, so I sent it to Christiane. The other side had the same text in English, I sent it to Uwe.

Also I’m still playing with some Starbucks bags, for this envelope sent to Philippe Charron.

Received from Elena Signori

A very nice handmade postcard from Elena. You cannot see it on the scan but the card has some 3D effect.

October PTE Exchange: two beauties

Two envelopes received as part of the PTE exchange. The first one, with a Halloween theme, is from Tina Morgan. I just love it.
