If you grew up in the 60s and 70s you'll remember pen-pals from an era when people actually put pen to paper to communicate with faraway family and friends. The children's television program Big Blue Marble had a pen pal program and I remember writing to them for one. Now, how many of you remember that?! LOL
Back in the 21st century, I received a card from Carol Durham of Scotland. Head on over to Carol's blog to see the the lovely card she sent me. And if that wasn't enough, Carol also included some gorgeous ribbons and I cannot wait to show them off. The full reveal of cards created and sent out by all the participants can be seen here.
So, this is the card I sent Helen Gullet from Ohio. I hope she liked my attempt at CAS, using various stamps from Clearly Besotted. I've picked the "Friendship" theme for my card.
Here's a closer look at the wacky little guy. I love his eyes. Keeping it simple and relatively flat. He's got to fly a long long way from Portugal to Ohio... excess baggage not required. :)
