I made some new collage cards/poetry pockets over Thanksgiving weekend.  I sent them out last week, so I'm beginning to hear back from my friends on both the art and and the poetry.  I've had so much fun with this project.  Here are pics from a card I made for a new mother.






the quote reads: Childhood smells like perfume and chocolate brownies

on the left is the clear pocket where I place a notecard with a poem

I can't believe no one has commented yet Shocked These are really beautiful, I spent a while just staring at the screen- they're so dimensional. I love the idea of a little pocket too!

Great job

Thanks Madelblue and Goatgoddess!  I was beginning to thing that I made some huge mistake and offended the craft gods in some way - thus leaving my post empty.  It was nice to read your comments!  I recently found a book called Creative Correspondence, so the "cards" I'm working on for January and going to be very dimensional and more of an altered book type thing.

I just cant get over these. Cool Everytime I look at the pics I see something new. It's a good thing they aren't mine, I might not leave the apt. I'd just be sitting around looking at them.

No they are very nice - I know I was busy with wayyyyy too many swaps and hadn't taken time to stroll thru the threads - so was late in seeing yours - Your new "cards" sound like they are going to be nice <G> Please post if you get a chance. I love looking at what others are doing and yours are very nice.

Thanks Shooting Star-

The book is Creative Correspondence by Michael & Judy Jacobs (they have a wonderful website - you'll find it if you google them) and the ISBN is 1581803176 and it was published in 2003 by North Light Books.

I hope you enjoy it.
