These are the wonderful postcards I received in the heART Exchange Global Postcard Art Swap. “Peace” was the theme of this swap.
Christine Brooks Sent the card on top. A wonderful nature collage. On the back, this wonderful message:
Peace be with you & in you. Take time to listen and LOVE
it’s all we need…
Beautiful! I have been blessed by receiving several cards from Christine since we relocated. She is right up the road in Flagstaff AZ.
The second gorgeous card is from Carolyn Hanson in Ohio. It is a collage with scrap papers, gesso and wonderful soft hues. On the front, ” I held out my hand to her”. On the back:
Peace is not something you wish for, it’s something you make.
The last card is lovely in its simplicity. From Jacki Wright in New Brighton, Wirral, United Kingdom. Delicate flowers and a reminder that we are all in control of our peace of mind. On the back:
May every sunrise hold more promise, and every sunset hold more peace.
So thankful for these handmade, beautiful, thoughtful postcards! Couldn’t help but share these warm thoughts with you.
Thank you Christine! Thank you Carolyn! Thank you Jacki!
Louise Gale hosts several of these swaps each year. Take a look at her site, and consider participating in one. Or all! Thank you Louise for hosting this fabulous swap! And for the message that “your heART makes a difference”!
As a small token of my gratefulness, I am sending bookmarks to these talented women. Your art made my day!
Happy weekend everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
Oh Joy! The postcard from Christine was an “extra”. I was surprised when I received this wonderful card from Ann. It looks like a fine oil painting, and included a very sweet message. Thank you Ann! I love the warm colors. I will be sending you a bookmark as well so keep your eyes on the mail!
