Make It Mondays - Going Postal!

2009_365_057 Purple Postage
I made this Purple Postage ATC for this week's Make It Mondays theme "Postage Stamps" using images from the Ten Two Studios Little Purple Things collage sheet embellished with a purple Crayola spider-writer pen (now discontinued *wah*). I almost called this "Purple Haze" but "Purple Postage" was more alliterative!

I love using postage stamps in my art. There's a whole Flickr group for that called Postage Stamp It! Art.

Crafting 365, Day 57

Love the swirls! So sorry to hear that one of your favorite pens has been discontinued --- BIG bummer! Isn't it just terrible when that happens!?!?! Don't know about you, but I'm always on a quest to find the "perfect" colored pens.

Cool! I have been saving unique postage stamps for quite some time in anticipation of the right project. Maybe I should just include them in your eternally promised package?

Thanks for the compliments!
@Chrisy - it seems like there's a Flickr group for EVERYTHING
@Terri - I did manage to find a handful on clearance when they disappeared so now I'm stockpiling ;o)
@IJ - I e-mailed you, assuming it's you and not some other random Jane.
