Snail Mail for the Card Chain Challenge

Hello Nomad friends.  It's the second of the month and time for the Card Chain Challenge Reveal.  35 cards were sent winging their way around the planet spreading friendship and love.  This is the card I sent to Mia in Greece.

I used the sketch, postal, friendship and string and block options.  Actually love the string and block background.  I wrapped string round an acrylic block and inked with distress ink and stamped.  Pretty cool.  Then I found some postage stamp dies and this Woodware snail mail stamp set. 

Do hop over and check out the REVEAL and all the awesome cards that were exchanged 

If you would like to be a part of the April exchange you can SIGN UP here

 If your card uses real stamping and it's cute and/or fluffy why not link it up to the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity Challenge Cute and/or Fluffy

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

I think your snail mail stamp is so cute!
Pretty sure you did the most of the options out of blogs I've read!
Good job!

Such fun and so colourful Gail, that string technique takes me back years, you forget about these things over time. Many thanks for sharing with us at We Love Stamping challenge.

How stinkin' cute! this is great fun, and I love all the colour and interest. What a creative way to use the twine option. The result is great and I may have to give that a try myself, Jo x
